“Can all childless people stop complaining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

I love this hotel, My family and i stay here when we visit Dubai. The staff are great and service is just perfect. I have 3 children who like swimming and having fun. While my children are not loud and annoying. I just hate it when people complain about a hotel based on children. Its a hotel expect other people and to be honest when my husband and i really want complete peace we stay at a couples only resort.
Take or stay at home.

This hotel was calm and peaceful with well trained staff who looked after our evey need.
The bedroom was well appointed and a reasonable size.
The staff were charming and willing and helpful.
To visit other parts of the hotel, like The Palace next door, one of the staff would drive us by golf buggy.
The afternoon tea was exquisite. This is served free to guests, in the Library, evey afternoon.
On the beach there were staff to continuously provide iced water. Little bowls of fruit were brought round each morning. And someone came along the beach daily to clean our sunglasses.
The different restaurants we tried were excellent.
The Jetty Bar, next door on the beach, was lively and atmospherical.
There was a boat to take guests to the sister hotel, on the Palm, for drinks or dinner in the restaurants there.
This hotel is the place to go in the winter, for a relaxing week of sun & pampering, with superb service.

Room Tip: The pillows are awful

Our seventh trip to Dubai and by far the best hotel we have stayed at, the residence is the smallest of the three parts to the Royal Mirage and very quiet beautiful pool area rooms that are second to none and staff that know your name and go above and beyond the call of duty to make your stay relaxing and wonderful. the Dinning room was lovely the chef on hand to make suggestions and Pravin in particular very helpful with wine suggestions. our only issue was eating at the beach bar and grill in the palace they have a bird scarer machine which is inaudible to most people but my 15 year old could hear it and we had to move inside but again the staff very very helpful and apologetic. cant wait to reurn

Myself and my dearest other half have just returned from a luxury 10 day holiday at the One and Only Residence and Spa, we went for a relaxing break and to celebrate our birthdays. The staff treat you like members of their family, this is the second time we have visited and certainly not the last, the attention to detail was second to none, each time we left our room on return it was made. The managers were great Gareth is an asset to the team, always polite and asking how we were. There are a lot of staff to mention, Nidhi was a great help and assisted us in booking our tours, another great asset to the team.
Noura is a very pleasant girl, who welcomed us at each sitting. There are too many lovely staff members to mention: deepak, ivan, Sajin the doorman was so pleasant waving us off and welcoming us back, i wish I could mention them all but i'm not as good as them at remembering names, they knew everyone.
If you want a relaxing holiday and pampering head for the One and Only, the grounds are awesome, you get your own piece of the beach, the pool is lovely nice and quiet, with the beach attendants bringing you fruit and water, ken is great, pleasant and smiling. I can't recommend this hotel enough. Already planning dates for our next trip.

We have stayed at the Residence & Spa about 10 times and it is one of the best hotels we stay at in Dubai. The service is second to none, the staff are extremely friendly and go out of their way to make your stay memorable. The afternoon tea is amazing - you will need to go on a diet when you go home! All of the restaurants in the One and Only resort are fantastic, I cannot fault any of them and they offer varying price ranges and a wide variety of food to cater for all tastes. I would recommend the Residence for those who want a quiet holiday, away from it all.

This is one of the best places I have ever stayed. The attention to detail is perfect but not overdone. We were looked after by a variety of staff with courtesy and attention with out intrusion. The room was tasteful and well appointed. I wont stay anywhere else in Dubai.

This was our second visit this year and it did not disappoint. We fell in love with the Residence back in June and wondered whether going back would be the same or spoil the memory, however it was even better than before. This is the way to experience what it must be like to live like a Millionaire. The staff who look after your room are like your own personal butlers in the service they provide and always with a smile. On the first day by the pool the towels were on our sunbeds in the same place we had last June, they remembered where we preferred to sit. It is little details like this that makes the Residence stand out. We now say it is like going home and we come back to the UK for a break...... not an enjoyable one! We have booked to go back next June and if we can sneak another trip in before then we definately will. Quite simply this hotel is exceptional.
