Amazing hotel with friendly staff, ask for waterfront view to get views of the pool, beach river and the huge mosque.
Free bottles of water and fruit in the room.
Food and drink were great, bit pricey but that's expected.
Internet is expensive, didn't bother with the hotels used the café's free wifi in Marina Mall.
Highly recommended.

Stayed here over New Year, service was brilliant very helpful, rooms very clean and spacious, one minor irritation tv seems too small for room. Pool area and beach fantastic. Eat in Frankies was lovely, had meal in Marco nice but very rich although expected this, and breakfast buffet was good. Lobby is very impressive overall would love to go back and I don't often say that about last minute holidays.

Love the decor here - not to everyone's taste, but if you like a bit of James Bond Villain - meets Arab Chic then you'll love the craziness of the lobby. Rooms are spacious and modern, bit slippy ( as is the bar area where I was one of three people to take a painful tumble - and that was before any cocktails were consumed). The restaurant Elements has a great brunch on Fridays and the Marco Pierre White Steak House is a real treat.
The staff are OK - helpful, but like many places in the UAE, are not quite up to scratch when it comes to taking initiative. No spa yet, but you can use the one at the Shangri la next door - a bit of a pain. Better for couples without kids in my view, although they are perfectly accommodating of children, there are better places to stay with young ones - not least Traders next door which is part of the Shangri la complex.
Overall, a stylish, funky place to stay with big rooms and some great food options - ask for a creek side view when you check in.

it was really great in every way. I had a gold floor room, wherever I go I find smiles and compliments. rooms are among the most spacious and smartly yet luxuriously furnished, it has a whole glass wall that gives an amazing view of the creek and the iconic shaikh zayed mosque. the beach is really clean and well organized. it has an big variety of top class restaurants.
