We have had several trips to Dubai and watched the Palm being developed so where quite excited about staying at the Atlantis . I have read the reviews and want to be as balanced as possible . Yes there is a wow factor but you can only watch fish in tanks for so long .I had stayed at the Atlantis in the Bahamas so i knew it would be big yet i presummed it it would have the service we have experienced in Dubai before and for me this is were it failed. Hotel caters for 1500 people staff were often very indifferent to your requests due to being busy
Room was nice but no balcony which we had requested despite being there for 9 nights they said they could not move us
We ate in two of there restaurants Rostang 2 michilin star food her e was appalling complaints fell on deaf hears . Kaleidoscope over priced for a buffet . We didnt try any more apart from breakfast which was fine .I can highly recommend both the Pier chic and PaiThai at AL Qasar roughly £210 with wine same price as Atlantis but far superior .We too also ate at the emirates mall and can recommend the Pizzaeria , Chop Chop and the mexican all in the west end section of the mall and all for under £70 for three. Try the festival mall aswell nice water front fun fair for children and nice selection of restaurants. If you like massive crowds not too fussed about the service & food and just want to be seen in the in place then the Atlantis would be fine. I would recommend staying at any of the following ,Burj Al Arab,Mina A Salam or Royal Meridian all give excellent service less crowded and value for money. One last thing on the Atlantis if you have children be aware that you will have to pay for the teen and childrens club which i was not aware of before i went .The childrens club would cost £50 a day or £356 for 9 days. The water park is worth a visit for a family of 3 you would be looking at roughly £200 for the day depending on exchange rates ( WILD WADI is free to guests of the jumirah group ). Overall i do not feel the Atlantis is value for money far too big and impersonal.
