My friend and I had the very best and perfect holiday at Rixos on the Palm.
The staff cannot do enough for you, the rooms are perfect and if you want a relaxing time, look no further.
I had read reviews on here re the potential noise of White X and had emailed the hotel in advance to be the other side of the hotel. I had also said we would be arriving early due to our flight.
When we arrived, we were invited to go for breakfast and by 11am our room was ready for us.
The rooms are fabulous - no lack of attention to detail.
The staff do their very best to help - nothing is too much trouble. Talk to them, each have great stories - we were especially impressed with Saw on Highlights Bar and Acki the lifeguard who is a font of knowledge.
There is no where to walk to! But taxis's and hotel cars are plentiful. The hotel run a free shuttle bus to Emirates Mall during the day.
You will get a better rate exchanging money inside the hotel than outside it.
Dont bother taking beach towels- you will get new every day.
Everything is charged to the room so there is no need to carry money around.
Breakfast is served until 11am and there is something for everybody - there is a great choice.
Dinner - to be honest we struggled and only ate there our first day. The Italian restaurant and the buffet restaurant were expensive and it is cheaper to get a taxi and find food elsewhere.
On your return to airport - ask hotel to book a Dubai Taxi. Much cheaper than the hotel cars and the taxi was there at 5am to take us there for only $32.
Re Currency - we used dollars and some AED. But if you use dollars,, they just convert iit easily.
I really cannot fault any part of this hotel - we are already making plans to come back next year.
