“Excellent !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

This is a must visit place. The show runs between 6pm to 11pm every 1/2 hrs. You can catch it while eating drinking or simply sitting. Just get down at Dubai mall metro station and catch a bus to Dubai mall. Fountain dancing on arabic song is spectacular to watch.

I was totally transfixed by the show. The atmosphere was phenomenal. Very romantic and great for the kids too. Well worth a visit.

We stayed at the address, and in the club lounge you can sit outside right over the fountains and watch the fountain show... absolutely breathtaking!

“Free and Fabulous...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

The trick here is to get a balcony table in TGI Friday's, order some food and be treated to at least 3 or 4 amazing 'shows' by the dancing fountain. We went at around 8:30pm when it wasn't so busy, the fountain will play music and display its dancing waters every 30 minutes. Cheeky Brits were coming in , taking a table, looking at the menu, waiting for the fountain and then disappearing afterwards without ordering even a glass of water! You must go, and get a nice Ice-Cream from Fauchon afterwards - inside the Mall.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Choreographed to music, the Dubai Fountain shoots water as high as 500 feet –that’s as high as a 50-story building. Designed by creators of the Fountains of Bellagio in Vegas, Dubai Fountain Performances occur daily on the 30-acre Burj Khalifa Lake.

Show starts at 6.00pm every day and it goes until 10.30pm it’s advisable to call and check as the last show timings keep changing depending on the season. It’s simply amazing and something definitely to experience.

To make your experience more enjoyable, here are a few pointers:
• They change the music for each show during the day, and each performance can be very different, so you may see it more than once. (The best one for me was a tribute to Whitney with "I Will Always Love You" just after she died, amazing.)
• Get there 10 minutes early as it can get very crowded so you may need to jostle for space.
• As you come out of Dubai Mall with the Fountains in front of you, if you walk to the right keeping the fountains on your left for about 200m, there are some great viewing spots that are rarely crowded.
• If it's too windy they don't operate but the only let you know as it's about to start.
• Al Hallab restaurant in Dubai Mall (second floor) has a lovely outdoor balcony view of the fountains and has great and cheaper Lebanese food.
• Enjoy - I love it!
