Been there twice, both times staying with the family in the garden chelets which were ideal opening out onto the fabulous big gardens and lawn which are a real novelty in this part of the world. Good pool area with slides etc. for the kids.
Food recommendation is to have the BBQ that is delivered to your door where you can cook for yourself. Portions are massive so a '2 man' menu will easily manage for 4 of you.
Like some of the other reviewers, I concur that it does need a lick of paint and bringing up to speed so the refurb news is welcome, but I hope it doesn't kill the old world charm either.
The other negative I would note is that they could do a better job keeping things clean in the gardens - there was a noticable amount of litter that really should be cleaned up.
Good hotel and definitely worth a look for a weekend away from Dubai.More
