“Magnificent hotel with something for everyone”
Reviewed March 24, 2011

Went to Dubai for business, but family came along for the trip. One of the best hotels we've stayed in and we couldn't fault it. Amazing views, fabulous restaurants, great beach chill -out bar and the waterpark is fabulous fun and a great bonus.

We've had a great stay at the Atlantis. As the hotel looks a bit "disney-like" I was at first a little afraid of a "Disney or Las Vegas atmosphere" but it was nothing like that.
The hotel is wonderful and the Arabic style and architecture fits, obviously, well in Dubai.
The rooms were beautifully decorated with lots of space.
Although there are so many rooms in the hotel, we thought it was not as busy or noisy as you would expect. Where ever we went, we had never problems of finding a place to sit. Not in one of the bars, or restaurants, or even at the sunchairs near the swimmingpools.

We loved the hotel bar 'Barazura' to have some drinks in the evening, also the 'tea bar' near the lobby was so nice!
We enjoyed sitting at the Levantine Terrace, have lunch at 'the Edge', and we had great salades at 'the Rostang'.
One night we went to Ossiano to have dinner, which was pricey but worth it, because I will never forget all the fish that looked at us (and we looked back ;-) during our dinner.

The Lost Chambers was absolutely gorgeous. It must have been a great artist, the person that designed this place and all the 'Atlantis' ornaments! And the fish.... I never liked fish before, but what we've seen there was really amazing.

As for the waterpark: We enjoyed it, it was not as crowded as you would expect. There were more than enough sun-chairs and the waterslides were really fun, even for adults.

We'd been to Dubai before, but when we come back again, we will definitely stay at the Atlantis again!

We stayed at Atlantis for 2 nights prior to a Dubai Cruise.

We arrived at 10am to find our room was not ready however when we returned to reception at 11.30 they told me it still wasn't ready but offered us a suite instead. OMG...it was the best hotel room we have ever stayed in with a lounge, bathroom, 2 toilets and luggage room and huge balcony.

The hotel is wonderful and has to be seen to be believed. Yes it is expense for food and drinks but you know that before you arrive.
We had drinks at the outside Mexican restaurant/bar prior to dinner where the drinks are BOGOF between 6pm and 8pm.
During our stay we eat at the Italian, the Steakhouse and the evening buffet which were all very good. Just be prepared to spend your cash!!
The grounds of the hotel are lovely to walk through inside and out and we visited both the Aquarium and the Waterpark.
We are frequent travellers and this is one of our favourite hotels.
We would highly recommend it.

This is the best hotel i've ever been to. I'm a travel agents so travel around alot. This hotel is perfect the views, the rooms, the staff, the food, I can't fault it at all. Yes the food & drink is quite expensive but you've got to remember your in Dubai it not going to be cheap. I would recommend this hotel & will be going back myself.

Wonderful hotel with fabulous choice of restaurants....... we tried a different restaurant every night - the food is second to non! Very pricey but worth it!! Staff all very helpful..........Highlight of our stay would definitely be swimming with the dolphins.... even though it was very expensive - you also have to add the cost of purchasing the pictures - was the best thing I have even done!! BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT!

All in all an impressive hotel with great outdoor facilities and very friendly staff however when considering that Dubai is full of great hotels the money charged by Atlantis does not offer value for money, it is let down by small things but when paying for luxury holdays the small things matter.......Booked for a week staying in a room on the Imperial Club floors, one roon with an extra bed for our 3 yr old son, also booked airport transfers. I arrived in Dubai on a different flight from my wife and son and checked in at the Atlantis desk, no receord of my transfer booking, after over an hour it was confirmed. Arrived at the hotel and no record of the extra bed request for my son, this was remedied but it took over an hour again. All good with breakfast in the Imperial Club, friendly staff if a little disorganised, no welcome pack was handed out nor was any information offered with regard to the booking made at Dolphin Bay. On the second night we were all kept awake until 3am by the noise from the beachside nightclub, when I asked at the Club lounge if this was a regular occurence i was told it goes on every night and if i wanted i could move to another quieter room...i did ask why it was thought ok to put a family with a small child in such a noisy room but was not given an answer! Please note we were on the 12th Floor and could hear the noise! We moved rooms and again no extra bed......On our final evening i reconfirmed the hotel car for the airport transfer and again no record of the booking and was also overcharged for the room, an error which took 2 hours to resolve.
