Dubai for Christmas 2006

We've just booked our first trip to Dubai (2 adults and 2 kids aged 8 and 11) arriving Christmas Eve and departing New Years Eve. We're staying at Le Royal Meridien. Has anybody stayed there over this period - think we're all worried it won't be Christmassy enough. What's it like having breakfast and lunch there on Christmas Day? My husband's just read some reviews about shopping - apparently the prices are the same as home (London). Is this true? Thanks.

Prices are pretty similar to where i stay in glasgow. With the exception of alchol which is pretty expensive and will cost you about a fiver a drink in the hotel. I just got back from Dubai last week and have to say youve picked a cracking hotel. We stayed there for two weeks it has three swimming pools, the beach is a minutes walk, plenty restaraunts and the pool bar is great for a lunch and a refreshment!

Thanks Scrooge. Wasn't exactly expecting Bing Crosby singing White Christmas and I'm aware of the difference in temperature but just making sure that it was an event that was celebrated within the hotel. Since it's the first time we'll have been away for Christmas day I was also wondering specifically if it was a joyous and festive occasion eating amongst others, food, atmosphere etc. Anyone out there who actually enjoys Christmas - particularly at Le Royal Meridien, Dubai - feel free to comment. Thanks.
