This is a good hotel, no doubt. We travelled in October 2010 and we were told my the hotel's taxi driver that it had been open about 4 months so it's still quite new. As you would expect from something so new it's spotlessly clean. Fortunately most the teething issues seem to have gone too and the service we received was very good.

We stayed in a standard room (1907) which was very well proportioned and had a great view of the palm and the Atlantis from the Balcony. The room itself had a door which allowed it to be connected to the next room along. This is my only complaint about the hotel as this door meant you could hear the next room at times. Not a lot but enough to be just a little annoying. I imagine if you got loud neighbours it could be a problem.

The pool is nicely laid out with a bar nearby and it's all very clean with towels provided for use at the pool or at the beach which is a very short walk away. The bar is expensive but that's to be expected in Dubai if you buy alcohol.

They do charge for internet usage in the lobby, that annoyed me a little for a 5 star hotel.

Also the hotel's taxi's are expensive so don't use them.

One thing you absolutley cannot fault is the location. You can get to the Emirates Mall, Burj Al Arab, Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall etc within about 10 mins maximum in a cab. Also right next to the hotel is a very long strip of restaurants with pretty much every cuisine in the world available.

Overall a very pleasant stay and I would recommend this hotel to my family and friends for an upmarket stay without the huge price tag.

Service very good, cleaned on daily basis,turn down gets you slippers, bathroom was fine, beach was good, the sea is like a bath. food in tappenyaki restaurant was amazing, bit of a small pool area so get up early if you dont like the beach! very friendly staff!
Was working so wasnt there all the time but always came back to clean, tidy room and bathroom.
getting to the beach may be frowned upon by some as your walking over not particularly clean sand but thats not the hotels fault! they all need to get together on that one!
overlooked the beach and the palm is in sight, great view from the 21st floor!

This was a fantastic hotel and I would most definitely return. I had got a great rate at lastminute.com however it took a long time for check-in staff to find the reservation. However they were super polite and helpful.

The rooms were very large, spacious and clean and I would recommend a room with a seaview balcony! Bathroom was also super clean.

Only downside was that as a busy hotel, the pool area becomes full very quickly and so I had to resort to going to the beach as there was no space at the pool.

Location is great and once the new metro station opens it will be within walking distance.

Would definitely return! Really was a fantastic hotel and the JBR area is a very nice area to stay! :)

We didn't get a nonsmoking room but were upgraded to higher level.
We suggest to ask for full sea view if you book.
There are no bath tubs but well designed bathroom with shower.
Staff very helpful.
Try happy hour Mojitos for a very good price.
Pool is fine, clean with great spouts for refreshment.
Access to beach crosses parking lot, should be improved, landscaped.
