I have just returned form a 6 night stay at this hotel and our overall impression was great, the hotel staff where faultless.....really helpful, the location was brillaint and we loved the free shuttle bus that was provided to take us to the malls, markets and beach.
There are building works going on around the hotel but this didnt interupt us and to be honest we quite enjoyed watching the goings on.
The food was brilliant especially the Brazilian grill...highly recommend, it was also great that the half board allows you to use the sister hotel which was only a 10 min walk away.
Our only concern was that there where no umbrellas for all the sunbeds around the pool so if you where later getting up you would be in the sun all day....no shade!!!
We will definately be back and will recommend this hotel to people that ask us about Dubai.More
