We stayed for two nights on the way to Australia. We arrived in mid evening. The distance from the airport was somewhat further than we thought, about a forty minute taxi ride. Lots of staff who immediately commandeered our luggage, handing us a ticket and we were told to give it in at check in so that the luggage could be sent to the room. There were four check in staff when we arrived, with very short queues, either one or two people at each. I was moved from one queue to another, four times in ten minutes, so I was getting a little frustrated with this. Eventually another lady arrived and checked us both in, upgrading us to an oceanview room on the top floor.
The room was a delight, very big, well laid out, and one of the best we have had in all of our travels. One small problem, the water ran slowly, but apart from that we were very happy and found it extremely relaxing.
As middle aged, we found two nights quite long enough. The resort is set at the far end of the Palms, and is difficult to get around easily from here to the rest of Dubai. However, for two nights, and one full day, we kept ourselves busy, in the morning, taking the monorail up and down the palms a look around the acquarium, and a few hours in the waterpark in the afternoon.
Thank you, but for us, weve been there, done it and enjoyed it, but not to return too soon.
