“Simply Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

I fell in love with the hotel as soon I set my eyes on it! Everything was perfect - The staff were amazing they were there whenever you needed anything, the food amazing, the hotel is in an imaculate condition not a spec of dust in sight, I love waterparks this by far has to be my fav! I have been to Aqua Park before in Sharm el Sheikh and must admit the guards there were really sleezy and it puts you off returning to the waterpark however these guards were just awesome really friendly, funny and genuinly nice people! We decided to do the Helicopter ride excursion - the best experience ever! Absolutly breathtaking stunning views a must do! Another highlight was swimming with the dolphins just amazing!! Dubai itself is such a beautiful place love love LOVE the shopping!! I would highly recommend this place you won't be dissapointed! Hoping to return in May and cannot wait!

Room Tip: The helicopter ride amazing!

It was our first visit to Dubai and stay at the Atlantis -wow!! What an experience, feel short of words to describe our feelings. Starting with the decoration of the hotel, it is mesmerizing. Christmas approaching soon, the decor was even more a feast to the eyes. The rooms were spectacular, king size beds and a lot of space to swim around. The view from the balcony oh! wow, what a treat, the sea and pools all stunning. The beds were really comfortable with so many pillows. Everything you name was there in the room. We had two rooms that were interconnected and it all looked so palatial. The food in the Saffron restaurant was amazing and you can spend even two hours there strolling and eating. The service was excellent as were the shefs. The aquaventure, monorail, dolphin bay and poolside are just amazing. The cart service around was also good. The scenic beauty in and around the hotel is beyond description. It was one of the most memorable trips of our life. The icing on the cake is its staff which is also the strength of this hotel. The only bad point about this place is unavailability of free wifi in rooms even after paying such a hefty amount as room rent and also the charges for paid internet are too high. Given a chance, I would love to stay here again.

This was a short break for us, having been to Dubai many times. On arrival the hotel was stunning and the reception received was excellent. We had an ocean view room on the 11th floor and this was perfect with a good view and great facilities. One minor point was that we had to run the taps for approximately 5 minutes to get hot water. The facilities in the room were excellent even though the minibar prices were over the top - crisps 22Dr (£4), Kit Kat 15 Dr (£3), small bag Maltesers 25Dr (£5)! Why do hotels charge so much?
Swimming with the dolphins was the best experience ever and well worth the money along with a good value photo package. Lounging around the pools or on the beach was excellent with cold towels and ice lollies given out on a regular basis. Service around the pools was fast, friendly and efficient.
Eating in the hotel was fairly priced but sometimes the service was lacking, which was surprising as the hotel was very quiet. We had to wait 20 mins to get drinks in the Nasimi bar and felt neglected.
The Levatine restaurant was a disaster with my wife's meal not turning up at all!, however the handling of the complaint was good and we were made to feel valued even though there had been a mistake.
The courtesy bus to the mall was a white knuckle ride with the driver accelerating and breaking hard and squealing tyres on bends.
I really wanted to give a 5* review but a few small things let them down, however this would not stop us returning again.

Room Tip: Always ask for an upgrade

It was my first time staying at the Atlantis and what can I say but wow! To start off we were met by the valet parking outside the hotel. I was very impressed by the receptionist as she was so helpful and courteous and it was a sign of good things to come. The decor of the hotel was lovely and was decorated with real pine. You cannot mistake that Christmas scent. The rooms were spectacular. The view of the sea and pools was stunning. The beds were really comfy. The rooms had all the products you would ever want from a hotel. The food in the Saffron restaurant was amazing, it had everything imaginable except real pork (or maybe I just couldnt find it there was that much choice). However, the chicken substitute was even better. The pools and beach were amazing. There were plenty of towels and sunloungers. The spa looked lovely from what I managed to see. They even gave out free ice lollies, which was a lovely touch. It was well worth upgrading to Premium to use the Premium lounge which provided drinks and snacks during the day and a lovely afternoon tea and drinks in the evening. The best point about this hotel must be the staff. They are a true asset to this hotel and they really made my stay perfect! I would really recommend that everyone stays here at least once as a treat.

Room Tip: Pay for Premium to get all the perks that come with it.

You will see the odd bad review for this hotel but they cant please everyone, there will be the inevitable disgruntled customer who has something happen.

Our family holiday and first visit to Dubai was a roaring success. Two kids, one aged 5, the other 2. They had the best holiday we have ever had. Hotel was immaculate, staff top draw and always had a smile and couldnt do enough to help you. Food was fantastic, we went half board and thought breakfast and dinners were something to look forward to. Water park was fantastic....cant rave about it enough. We will return. One thing though, its very expensive for drinks....i went down one night for a drink, double vodka and coke you need a mortgage for! I knew it was going to be expensive though. Enjoy if you're going!.
