This was our final stop on an amazing honeymoon and possibly I had been spoilt at this stage or even just exhausted after all the travel.
We had a delux room for four nights and I must agree with other reviewers with regards to check in. Although it was 4:30 am, we were given very little directions to our room other than the floor and were not advised with regards to breakfast (even though we had paid for it as part of the package). I had to go back down the next day and clarify what was included in our deal and what was not, i.e. breakfast, use of the water park and aquarium and, well thats it.
The rooms were big and spacious and we looked out on the Royal pool.
Staff were polite but standoff ish and the conceirge service was an absolute joke!
We ate in the french restaurant one night and the food was overpriced and bland. A glass of champagne for my wife cost £31! the bottle at home would cost about £18.
Talking about my wife, the staff could be downright rude to women and this was also encountered by our driver when picked up at the airport to be brought to the hotel - her questions were just ignored and then he expected a tip!
Would I go back to Dubai? probably, Would I go back to the Atlantis? in a word, nope!
