“The glitziest place on the planet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I visited the island on a coach trip with approximately 50 others, all from the Royal Caribbean ship,Serenade of the Seas.

Everything was over the top. The blocks of flats, superb houses, the hotels, were all in the luxury class, all the trees and bushes looked as though they were washed and polished daily, litter was not allowed to land on the ground, but all the people who lived there were unseen so can't comment on them.

On the downside, the Atlantis Hotel seemed to have a continuous stream of coaches outside disgourging hundreds of tourists with cameras who mainly took shots from the hotel lawns. The traffic there was pretty horrendous although each coach seemed to stay not much more than 20 minutes. Wouldn't want to stay there.

I've added a trip over the island on a helicopter to my bucket list.

“Nice concept but not so easy to see”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

We did a boat and taxi tour and not so much you can see from outside. Most inside beaches are private so we were not able to get there. Maybe if someone find a way it is worth to visit. It looks much better from sky view.

“3 Palms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

The 1th Palm was already watched by millions how and what they were doing there in Dubai but after that Palm 2 and 3 followed, even bigger than the 1th one. To see the Atlantis was overwelming, so huge!!! We only stared at it because it felt like a fata morgana. For us to big and to much but as many things in Dubai perfect!

“Great dredging achievement”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

The Palms Islands show what Dubai is capable to do to expand its need for new land. One can take a pleasant tour to visit the islands and also to visit the Atlantis The Palm hotel and the famous aquarium.
