I stayed at this hotel over Christmas and New Year. To start with, the "girl" at front desk was unpleasant and inflexible. The Internet was not free and RIDICULOUSLY priced! About $100 for a week's stay for only ONE device!!!
Contrary to some of the reviews, I actually liked the fact that house keeping came round in the afternoon to give me time for a lie in. The rooms are quite spacious and the kids had a good time running around. However, the rooms had not been maintained well. They had a musty smell and certain parts were dusty. The water would come out yellow when initially turned on and the towels were small sized and hard.
Now for the worst part! The location!! It is off Sheikh Zayed rd (a very long road) but smack in the middle of nowhere! There were hardly any taxis. One could wait about 45mins without a single taxi coming by. This was extremely unusual for me as I had stayed in various hotels in dubai and all I needed to do was stroll out of the lobby and the taxis were there. As if this wasn't bad enough, a lot of taxis don't know the hotel, resulting in long trips around the city, various telephone calls and generally a lot of time wasted!
The front desk staff looked unhappy to be there for the most part; they hardly smiled or said hello but the other staff were generally quite friendly and helpful.
This hotel is not a luxury hotel. If you need basic and you have hired a car then it is not so bad.
