“Affordable luxary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is really a must try hotel. It is really amazing, totally luxurious at the palm and afordable.
Really service minded staff, great rooms, private beach and lovely pool area.
We stayed with kids and they totally loved it too. There was other kids too and life guard around the pool area. Great food to be served around the pool area and nice cabanas to sunbath in.
You must diffinetly try this

Very good location in Dubai, one of my best stay so far.
The hotel is located at very begging of the Palm, so it's close to Marina, Palm restorants and hotels, downtown is not far.
The room was very good, spacious and very new, as if no one ever stayed there. Pools are very nice, specially the one without kids. Gym is amazing.
Generally the hotel has very good food, many lifestyle dishes for those watching their weight.

Service was excellent. Special regards to the poolman Nikhil and shishaman Mohamed.

We choose Fairmont The Palm because of its reasonable prices and great Persian Gulf access. In-between we had a stay in Armani Dubai (which was also really great) and came back again to the Fairmont. The hotel is quite big, it has 390 rooms, a very nice and clean beach. tasty breakfast. My attention was drawn by a very professional and friendly staff. I communicated mostly with Max and Mary from Kenya- extremely nice Kenyans. Dany, Lloyd, Leah, Muthui, Najeeb, Diaa, Ibrahim Safi; and of course a friendly & always in a good mood Khaled al Baloushi. This to mention just a few. Sorry if I forgot to mention someone else. The fitness staff was also very nice. The safe guards at the beach watch without break for the safety. So you feel very comfortable and relaxed. All are supportive and at your disposal whenever you need. Im very happy for having chosen this hotel and will come back again. The only one bad memories happened when I asked to change the used tea and coffee cups, and the guy did not speak english and was a kind of "frozen" one, even with hands explanations he did not understood what I exactly want.. so he started to wash my cups in my bathroom with the soap, this made me laughing and I just kindly asked him to stop torture my nerves :) so this was the only one negative memories, the rest was very nice and highly recommended to the others.

I stayed at the Fairmont the Palm 2 nights only. Rooms are very big and clean. Bathroom is amazing. THe only bed things about the room were the pillows, but this is personal. I don't like very soft pillows and those one were exactly like that. I didn't ask if they had harder ones so i don't know if they were willing to change them. The gym is the best one i have ever seen in a hotel: new machine, clean and great! I had to stay over until late in the night during my last day and they let me stay after the check out with the possibility to use the beach and the gym also; you can have a shower if you have a late flight like me although you don't have a room anymore. Staff was very kind and helpful. The position is great and you can reach everything by taxi which is very cheap in Dubai. Price can be very high though but that's the area in general, so try to book your room in advance if you would like to have good rates. Food is not that great, excpected more from a 5 starrs hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are fine, even the one with street view, you don't hear much noise. Indeed the room wi...

The lobby of Fairmont is elegantly designed, pretty marble floors, plush sofas... Just luxurious. Upon check in, we were told that we will be upgraded to Fairmont Gold. We were ushered to our door and boy, the rooms were amazing! we had a nice view of the bay, a nice balcony but it was too hot to sit out, but perfect in the night! Bed and pillows were heavenly, Fairmont is always best known for that! The bathroom is spacious, and LOVE the shower products! View from Gold Lounge at breakfast was breathtaking. Breakfast spread left me with lots of choices. Would love to stay again!

This is a great hotel. Excellent accommodation and food, very relaxed, great service and right on the beach. Plenty of beds round the pool (we went at Easter) and long, lazy lunches on the veranda in the shade. It's a very good location at the foot of the Palm as only 5 mins in a taxi to Madinat Jumeirah / Beach.
Particular thanks to Mohammed (manager), Stephen and Mark (concierge), Sydney and Daljeet (and the team) in the Flow Kitchen / lunch on the veranda. Great to see our expectations of a Fairmont exceeded again.

Room Tip: Go for the sea view rooms. We stayed on the fourth floor and no noise. Adjoining rooms have their ow...

This property is ideally located with great views of Dubai skyline and the ultimate in luxury and pampering. Food at the Seagrill is comparable to Masterchef dishes and the Flow Cafe is great for a quick snack.

The road layout, no fault of the hotel, is bad in that a taxi has to travel all the way up the Palm before turning back to access the hotel. In term of fairs, it adds a few dollars to the bill.

Room Tip: Sea views are of course preferable as are the balconies which overlook the gulf.
