It has come as a bit of a shock to return to normality after spending 10 pampered nights at the Residence.
This was my second time at this part of the Royal Mirage but I have stayed at The Palace and then the Arabian Court many times before.
Everything was thought of from very well trained staff.
I agree with a previous reviewer about Gareth, a pleasant, genuine restaurant manager, Swiss trained and you could tell.
Other staff members that deserve a mention were Noura and Dijo in the restaurant and the best room cleaner of all time Jahirul. I have never stayed in such a well cleaned and looked after hotel room.
The hotel does have some external noise problems with noisy party boats mainly at weekends anchoring just off shore and unfortunately when I was there the World Parachuting Championships were going on and there were noisy helicopters flying over the hotel to drop the competitors at Skydive Dubai.
I have experienced the resort pre Palm construction and even though it is now quite different externally the quality and service in the hotel remains second to none.
