My husband and I are off to Dubai in August. We haven't booked yet, but have decided to stay in the Jumeriah beach area. At the moment the two hotels we've narrowed down are the Sheraton and the Habtoor resort. We have never visited before and therefore have no idea about the cost of food and drinks. Just wondering if anyone has any advice on possibly spending more for a hotel to include half board option? Or did anyone opt for it and then regret it? If we book without half board we're looking for the hotel to cost no more than £1000 between us for 10 nights, or up to £1700-1800 between us including half board (all excluding flights!).
Many thanks in advance for any advice!
