After being in Thailand for 10 nights we were looking forward to going to Dubai for 4 nights and wow a place I will go back to. The hotel it's self and the rooms were lovely. Because it was our honeymoon we had champagne in the hotel with chocolates and little treats. The breakfast was a treat. They had everything. From eggs in all different ways. Crispy bacon. Sausage. Egg Benedict. Croissants. All different jams and chocolate spread. Fruit. Salads. Different cheeses. Curry dishes. Different types of bread. A lot of different soft drinks and your own coffee machine to use. Basically everything for different cultures. Coming out the hotel the beach is a 2 min walk. You will get a beach bag with Towels and a mat at the hotel. Beautiful sea. Now there is work going on at the hotel. We got a letter which said it was minor. This was more than minor. 24 hours working at the hotel. Hearing horns beep and people shouting. If we knew it was going to be more work going ahead we would have changed hotel. Defiantly visit the Dubai mall. An aquarium in the mall then every half hour after 6pm the waterfall show. It's amazing. Visit all the 1000+ shops and 500+ restuarants. The fashion walk in the mall with all your designer shops. It also has river island. Debenhams. Next boots and all other normal retailers. Visit the water park. Amazing rides screaming like a kid but a great experience. Book this at the hotel you save money. The hotel does free bus trips to different places. We visited the market which was about 15 min away from the hotel. If you do book trips they are over £100 each some of them. If yur Going anywhere get a taxi. They are so cheap. There is restuarants to thee left when you come out of the hotel entrance. Starbucks and other places aswell as an exchange shop for changing your money over. Staff were lovely and the cleaners did really wel who were also really nice. Bathroom in your room was really nice with all your elemis shampoos extra compliment from the hotel. You have a mini bar in the room which we did use. An experience we wont forget and will defiantly visit this hotel again hopefully when al the building work has been completed.
