I don't find the views in Dubai particularly inspiring due to all the construction in most places, however as this was my third trip here it was what I expected. If your looking for guaranteed sunshine and great food then Dubai is the place for you.
This hotel is in a fabulous location with links to explore all attractions with ease and taxi fares being of a reasonable price.
The staff here are all very friendly and accommodating, however it would be appreciated if women were addressed as much as the male visitors. I realise this partly a cultural thing, however my husband was the one who was mostly addressed and at times I found it a little offensive.
The food for the most part was delicious, and we were offered a 50% discount on the buffet one afternoon in the empty restaurant. I believe this is because the price per head was too expensive as we were all pleasantly surprised why the restaurant was so empty when the buffet food was so delicious. It was truly a great dining experience.
The nearby beach is still under construction so it's not really a pleasant sight, and there seems to be no litter control as the sand is filled with rubbish and cigarette butts. Yuck.
The pool isn't very big due to the location which for me was quite disappointing as it only got some sun in the morning and due to the fact we travelled in December it could get quite chilly in the shade so we didn't get much use.
The Brazilian on the 35th floor was excellent, and the chill out shisha bar is worth a visit.
We stayed in a family suite which was lovely, spacious and felt like a home away from home although a few more dishes would have been nice. For example 2 cups was all we had between us.
Friday brunch is something to be experienced in and around all the hotels, we visited Al Qsar, although expensive you got your monies worth on unlimited branded alcohol and so much variety of food it has to be seen to be believed.
If Dubai is definitely a place you want to visit, I would highly recommend this hotel.
