My mom and I spent a view days in Dubai. I must first start off by saying that this hotel is literally 5 minutes from the airport. The hotel charged us 150 dharams from airport to the hotel. Being in a strange country for the first time we thought we will rather be safe and use that. It s a rip off. You can rather catch a cab and all the cabs have meters and it was about 18 dharams to get from the hotel back to the airport. Use the cabs they are very safe and we were two women traveling alone. The hotel itself is excellent with the most comfortable bed I ever slept in! the mini bar was complimentary which was lovely. We enjoyed the high tech stuff like opening the curtains with the buttons by the bedside and the free wi-fi. It is about 25 minutes away from the beaches though. They do have free shuttle service but we hardly used that we just used the cabs because it was cheap and convenient as the shuttled have specific times they go and come. There is a fantastic Irish village joined to the hotel grounds, lively atmosphere and a variety of restaurants to choose from. We ate there on two occasions. We also enjoyed the free tickets to the wild wadi park and the Al Madinat beach. You only get one ticket per stay however. If you really want the whole beach experience then this hotel is not for you. It is in a business district and not on the creek at all. The friendliness and the service of the staff however blew us away. We had very overcast weather and the one day it rained all day.
Do the hop on hop off bus tour. Best way to see the whole of Dubai and you need about 2 days to do everything properly. We also did the desert safari camp with Fun Tours. That was absolutely fantastic and a must do if you want an authentic desert experience.
