Spent two nights with the family and was impressed with its modern looks and features. Service at the reception was good and the rooms were clean with a good view of the marina and a portion of the race track. There were friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating staff at the bar at the roof deck where you will have a nice view of the island, especially at night. Free shuttle service to the nearby Ferrari World and Waterworld was a big plus. Unfortunately, the service at the japanese (Kazu) and chinese (Noodle Box) restaurants will greatly diminish whatever good impressions that one may have had. Servings at both restaurants were pricey (that's a given) but unusually small, even for 5 star hotel standards, A 35 AED (about $10) fried rice at Kazu did not even fill a small bowl even when the waiter said that it was good for two (small birds perhaps?). Sashimi (no need for cooking right?) was served after about 20 min. while the rest of the mostly grilled or pan seared meal was served after about one hour. Did not even bother to look at the desserts because we neither had the time nor the patience to wait any further. No amount of good reviews from Time Out will make up for a miserly serving of food that cannot be consumed within a reasonable time.
