If you look on the Dubai forum there have been several posts regarding this recently. You can also look at the Top Questions about Dubai which is on the right hand side of that page and Ramadan is the 6th link. Although the posts might be older the facts are still the same.

Don't eat, drink or smoke in public during daylight hours. Hotels will continue to provide room service and some may have areas for non-Muslims to eat and drink. Some pool areas will allow smoking and serve water. Mall cafes will be mostly closed.

All back to normal after sunset but clubs will be quieter and lower key. Malls and other attractions will open until later.

So, you need to plan ahead if you're going to be away from your hotel during the day.

One of the Top Questions about Abu Dhabi (on the right of this page) is "Ramadan in Abu Dhabi". It's an interesting time to be in the UAE but the atmosphere and therefore your experience will be very different compared to if you holiday in this area outside of Ramadan. Also be aware the weather is usually extremely hot and humid in July and August and temperatures can reach 50C.
