We just came back from our first trip to Dubai, we stayed at the Atlantis fort the half term after reading the positive reviews. The resort is unbelievable, we were blow over by the all the amenities on offer. I cannot recommend enough this resort for families, the service is great, we were pampered all the way and I cannot beleive the bad reviews about it, these people are most probably expecting the moon and of course they cannot have it. We checked in at around 08.30 and we were told to wait 1 hour approx. to get our room and they promptly did, we were upgraded actually. The staff is mostly from the Indian continent and fluent English and they cannot do too much for you, unfortunately they were a few people who were rude to them and I found this so unfair. The rooms are nothing spectacular, they were very clean and the beds very comfy, I don't think that you need majestic decoration as you do not travel to stay in your room anyway.They are 2 pools (Zero entry and Royal) with attentive service, we had lunch at the Royal pool daily and it was served in comfort by our sunbeds, towels are limitless therefore if you decided to visit the other pool or the beach you are offered freshly laundered towels every time. Sometime they offered cold perfume towels to refresh and ice lollies for the kids whihc was a nice touch. Prices are of course 5 stars but you are on holiday and therefore you don't complain, although not exagerated as some people let you believe (a lunch of past and fruit was around £20.00). The Acquaventure park is great fun and as is the Lost Chambers. Strong recommendation: always book on a half board basis otherwise you end up paying more than your hotel stay. We were HB and ate to Locanda Locatelli, Rostang, Saffron, Levantine and Kaleidoscope, all very good restaurants in their own right (a bit less Rostang though, the food wasn't that great as the others). All in all, a great luxury family resort.
