As you drive onto the island and see the place you instantly think, 'wow'. Meeting you at the drive by a maze of porter, door men etc. The lobby is grand and the fish tank is amazing.
I had a room on the eigth floor and for a '5 star' hotel the room was not that flash. Nothing really stood out to say 'wow' like the lobby. Yes a nice view over the ocean, but its just water.
You have to remember you are basically six kilometres offshore. That being the case if you dont like to opening your wallet then dont go. Everything costs, (bottle of beer $10+, ice cream at the water park $8+, water craft cost). The food quality is amazing as are the way the restruant have been done up, (But again remember '5 star' prices)
The pools are nice and I used the gym which was very well equiped and the water park is a blast. Being free for guests you have to use it daily. I most enjoyed the 'Leap of Faith' but all rides were fun. However, I do recommend you go to 'Wild Wadi" it is the better of the two water park, had more fun there.
Would I stay there agian, no I dont think so. It to be is kinda like been their done that. But don't get me wrong its a great hotel and one you must stay at just for bragging rights. Nice location just a little far from anything.
If you stay use taxi's to get around the rest of Dubia. They are cheap and metered and drivers if they understand you know exactly were they are going. By the way try indoor snow skiing its very different and good fun.
