Stayed for new year 2010 and the hotel although still in its soft opening stage was running 5 star.
The location was excellent right on the walk and just over the road from the beach.
There were numerous restaurants and shops in walking distance and the views from our room were fantastic.
The reception area was gorgeous and the staff couldn't do enough to help you.
Our room was amazing he bed was the comfiest I have ever slept in and been pregnant at the time was a godsend.
The bathroom was luxurious the extra deep tub got used everyday and been able to open the sliding door and look out to he balcony and watch the sunset whilst bathing was great.
The cleanliness and the room staff were spot on, turn down service with chocolate every night,
Plenty of tea, coffee and mineral water.
The pool area we only used once, the sunbeds were lovely and comfy but the area was in the shade for the majority of the day so no good for tanning, we then went to the beach after that using the free beach chairs provided by the hotel.
On the odd occasion we wanted a taxi the doormen would have one for us in seconds, taxis are cheap and very clean although they do drive a little quick for my liking but if you ask them to slow down they dont mind.
We visited the Dubai mall, went up the burn Khalfa and to the wild wadi waterpark, there is and was a lot more things we would of liked to of done whilst in Dubai but at 5mth pregnant and staying in such a lovely area we ended up just enjoying our hotel, the beach and the walk a lot.
New years eve was amazing we went to the beach along with everyone else to watch the amazing fireworks the best we've ever seen.
We will return to Dubai in the near future and definately for new year again
