Arrived at Heathrow, we had already done online check in, we were in the bar withing half a hour, good for LHR.
The A380 Emirates plane was great, so smooth and comfortable, arrived early in Dubai, quick stop at duty free and changed some money up and a car waiting for us, all good so far.
Arrived at the Al Qasr, lovely greeting cold towels, 7.45 we knew our room would not be ready, but we came prepared separate bag with swimwear and suncream, we had breakfast and were by the pool when we got the phone call on our mobile to say our rooms were ready it was 11am so not to bad.
I had sent an email requesting Villa 12 we were very lucky to be given 2 rooms in this Villa, it was a great Villa with a beautiful private pool which was lovely and chilled, we were also lucky to have Christley as butler he was absolutely superb he anticipated our every need.
The half board was great, we had some great meals loved MJ's tthe wagu fillet steak wow, also enjoyed Jambase, Pai Thai and Segretto all very good quality food.
Did some shopping MOE, Karama, Dubai Mall which I didn't enjoy far to big for me, we only went there after we came down from Burj Khalifa which was amazing, the fountains were beautiful with great music the 2nd time we watched.
Most days were just relaxing by the Al Qasr pool Villa 12 pool or on the beach, the pool guys came round twice a day with ice lollies, cold flannels, fruit sticks, the staff at the Madinat were very good.
We were so lucky that everyone we met in Villa 12 for our sundowner drinks were so nice, we had a great crowd there.
On our last night my daughters boyfriend proposed to her outside Pier Chic at sunset, very romantic, he brought her a lovely diamond ring from Cara, don't all shout, we have been going there for years, Kiran himself drove us back to our hotel in his own car, her ring was made for her a platinum Tiffany Novo design 1 carat diamond VS1 colour F and 1/2 carat 24 diamonds on the band all the way round absolutely beautiful, when I can prise it off her finger will get it valued. we have a certificate.
So another great holiday in Dubai, we now have a new favourite hotel can't wait to go back and stay at the Dar Al Masyaf and hope Christley is our butler again as I can recommend him and the DAM very highly.
