Have just booked for nine days at the Al Qasr in Sept and unfortunately am unable to get an ocean view room as the agent's allocation has already been taken. We are now in a deluxe room. Rather disappointed by this. Can anyone advise which room we should aim for and also advise whether we are going to be facing the road!!!!!!! Not looking forward to it quite so much if we are unable to have an ocean view room (although this is on wait list). Any help would be appreciated. Also we would like to visit the Burj al Arab. I have looked at their website and looked at the restaurants but cannot find anything which would give us the cost of dinner in the various restaurants. Anyone have any idea of how much it cost to eat there recently and which restaurant you would recommend, if so how far in advance should we pre-book. I have made enquiries about going for the drinks package there and I think that works out the equivalent of £32.00 per person minimum. How many drinks would that be for!!!!!!!
