Particular congratulations to your recruiting team! They all represented their countries with warmth and pride. You have picked superb staff - in reception, in the restaurants and, yes, even in the swimming pool! Frustratingly I am one of your older guests (we were celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary with you!) and I noted whilst swimming that the attendant was watching... More

The mostly Kenyan staff were outstanding in their service . Rooms were five star standard . Nice gym. Pool area needed to be bigger, but this is a low rise hotel and superbly positioned , walking distance from the Dubai Mall and Burg al Khalifa.

Been there seven times and will go again and again. Good selection of restaurants. Cosy and sofisticated lobby lounge. Wonderful outdoor atmosphere at the pool areas. Staff needs a bit of work but setting and atmosphere make up for that.

When you are next in Dubai make sure you visit the Stage 2 bar, its great! A relaxed ambience and fabulous staff, get Kimo to make you a fantastic cocktail or enjoy happy hour any day of the week. Kimo is fabulous and will make any drink up for you.
