I have just returned from a long weekend at the Cove Rotana. Flew out from London Thursday night and got to the hotel mid morning on the friday.
First impressions, hotel is 80km plus outside of Dubai (but we had a private transfer so was a very easy drive) Hotel lobby and communal areas were all very clean and well airconditioned.
We stayed in one of the lagoon villas which was brilliant. 2 minutes walk to the beach and very close to the pool so could choose where to swim. Villa was perfect as it had a small kitchen area to make tea and coffee etc. We had a lovely terrace area in which to sit out and look over the lagoon towards the sea. Very quiet and relaxing.
Food in the resturant although i did not go the Basilico but the Cinnamon resturant was excellent, lots of choice for a buffet and fresh food added all the time.
Staff were all incredibly friendly and polite and nothing was too much trouble.
The pools were both lovely as was the beach. I had a massage on the beach which i highly reccomend.
All in all, i would definately go back for a long weekend or 4-5 days.
However if you are looking for lots of nightlife and shopping i would recommend Dubai itself as this is brilliant but for a more laid back trip
