This five star hotel really met or exceeded our expectations in all aspects. Clean and comfortable of course. Very kind and helpful staff everywhere, in the lobby, in the restaurants, in the pool area, in the bar, in the gym, really a good service culture in every corner.
We flew in to Dubai International airport and from there you can take a taxi. Approximately 1h30 min and 300-350 AED.
A free shuttle bus take you to the beach and the best shopping areas. If you can bare the walk it is a nice one for about two km's on a very nice side walk along the sea.
Although the hotel is a big one it had a nice atmosphere and I would recommend it for business traveling as well as, like in our case, a holiday trip.
Sofitel is the (only?) hotel chain that has understood you like a nice and comfortable bed for your sleep and together with the sun-proof location it was the major reasons for our hotel choice this time.
The breakfast really fantastic. All choices whatever, fresh and healthy alternatives as well as others perhaps tastier than healthy ;-)
