Having stayed at several hotels in Dubai my wife and i wanted to try somewhere different. This site's reports worried us slightly so we only planned a short stay but we needn't have worried.
The hotel is extremely impressive and the standards of cleanliness were higher than i have ever come across before. The food was of a high quality and the Italian restaurant was very good, generally all the food was to the standard you would expect of this kind of hotel.
The hotel is very quiet which we liked but can understand that some guests have described the atmosphere as empty, you can walk around the vast grounds and not see another guest. We like our own company and enjoyed being the only people on 1km of clean sandy beach. We don't have children but they do seem very well catered for throughout the day.
We had a diamond room with a sea view which was very pleasant and our butler introduced himself and explained how the in room entertainment worked - very hi-tech 50 inch televsion. We didn't see our butler after that which was a little disappointing but i think that i was expecting very high standards and did find myself looking for failings.
Drinks are very expensive but then you'd expect that in this kind of hotel.
Nightlife is quiet, restaurant based with some background music.
This isn't the sort of place i'd stay at for more than a 4/5 nights but you have to see the extraordinary features of the hotel to believe that this level of oppulance exists. It made a great place to two centre visit and we will go back.
