"I was meaning the Hilton Fujairah and the Meridien Al Aqar.
I have since found out they are about 30 miles apart.
DESPITE Trip Advisor mapping them on a cluster together !!!
VERY BAD SHOW TRIP ADVISOR"
To be fair Fujeirah is a rather small Emirate and pretty much everything looks rather close together.
The same could well be said about some hotels in Dubai. They may not be 30 miles apart but it could well take some time to travel between them simply because the road networks available require you to travel some miles in the opposite direction and then take an off ramp from a highway or road and then travel back in the opposite direction finally to reach your destination.
By the same token, judyush, there are things called maps, atlases, not to mention google which you could have looked at prior to booking to find out exactly how far apart the two resorts/hotels are.
Sorry not to be more sympathetic but, as the title says, Trip Advisor. I'd suppose that most people would do a some investigations themselves before coming onto the forum and asking questions, if only to confirm what they'd already found out. Or otherwise to be given different information upon which to organise their trip/visit.
