Christmas and New Year in Dubai 2013

Am feeling over-whelmed with the choice of hotels in Dubai. Would love to find a value for money hotel on the beach with more character and atmosphere than glitz - and one that really knows how to celebrate Christmas. After Christmas we hope to find a one bedroom apartment over looking the creek or maybe the marina, any advice would be much appreciated.

The hotels on the beach are all 5* luxury properties with their own character and atmosphere but there is nothing much more than 15 years old and they all have glitz.

They all celebrate Christmas in a big way.

You won't get much below £ 250-300 a night at Christmas and many will be much more than that - so it depends what your definition of value for money is.

For something near to the creek look at

Further to Latimers comments.

Christmas is peak season. Most 5 star hotels will hesitate or not sell only 1 or two nights over Christmas.

If you want value for money hotels you have to make a compromise on location (not directly beach front) and standing (not 5 star).

Hi Phil

Thank you for your advice. Would you be able to suggest a nice hotel with characther/atmosphere which is not on the beach but maybe overlooking some kind of water, perhaps The Marina. Otherwise any other suggestion would be great.
