This is probably the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in and the only problem was that I had only one night to enjoy it! As a solo female traveller I felt extremely comfortable here, and walking from the hotel to metro is so quick and easy to get to the malls etc. Staff were really friendly at reception, pool area, and in each of the restaurants/bars and were chatty and helpful. I requested a late check out as I was going to the airport for a late flight, and was able to keep the room until 3pm for no extra charge.
The room was lovely, exactly as shown in the photos, very large, gorgeous bathroom with lovely Molton Brown products, separate experience shower and large tub, fluffy towels and bathrobes. The room had a well stocked mini bar, massive bed and large TV with a selection of on demand movies (a bit steep at AED 60). The pool deck was fab, it's on the 11th floor of the hotel, so not on rooftop but is open all around with glass walls so you can swim over to the edge and look down on Jumeirah lake. This is great for me as I could lay in the heat but avoid having to smother myself in sunscreen!! There's a lovely warm jacuzzi, and steam room and sauna within the changing room. There's also a bar to have drinks by the pool.
Downstairs is McGettigans Irish bar, lively and fun, and a slightly quieter more sophisticated Healey's bar with live music and cocktails. There's a cafe near the lobby, a small gift shop, and downstairs is the restaurant. I paid AED80 for breakfast (about 17 euro) which is expensive, but no more so than paying for a taxi/metro to a mall etc. to eat there, and the choice was great. I probably spent over an hour reading the free newspapers and magazines while going through a huge selection of fresh fruit, warm breakfast (with a choice of pork meats), a variety of pastries, juices, cereals etc. Definitely worth the money, although had I been staying longer I probably wouldn't have eaten that much everyday!
