“Remarkable, monorail and all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

The monorail is convenient, but only runs down the center "stem" of the palm. We hired a taxi instead, and drove around to Rixos Hotel, the southern end of the outside palm leaf. Didn't visit Atlantis, as we have visited the Bahamas version and they look virtually identical... Amazing and worth visiting for sure.

As for the rest of the palm, it represents an astounding architectural achievement in true Emirati fashion. Wow!

“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

What was made by man and machine is beyond imagination and all in such a short time!!! Although it,s a place for the happy few among us it,s worth to visit it because of what the results shows. You may like it or not, we found it super to see what was made out of nothing to become finaly a paradise

“Restricted Island”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Apparently it is an island residence. You can only walk into it if you stay in the residence. The Atlantis is great to view towards from the Palm Monorail at the Gate.

“Cool but not crazy about it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

I've been to the Palm twice and it's cool but not that amazing. Both times I only stayed for maybe 30 mins. It's just one of those places where you should at least check out while in Dubai but not necessarily spend a lot of time. BTW - pricey food here

I felt like I was in another country. I went to the Atlantis Palm hotel and the surrounding area and beaches are fabulous.
