Loved this hotel - the room was stunning (best bathroom we have ever come across!), ultra modern and stylish. The facilities and dining options were really good, the staff very friendly and attentive. The only slight negative regarding the hotel itself was that the room equipment kept letting us down (bathroom light packed up - quickly fixed, telephone didn't work - couldn't be fixed before we left , and most annoyingly couldn't get the air conditioning below 23.5 c in spite of reporting and supposedly getting it fixed). Having read the earlier reviews and niggles, these seemed to be due to the newness of the hotel and inexperience of its staff, and we definitely felt that this was now resolved and staff are fully up to speed. The concierge and pool service staff were particularly good!
Be aware that the beach is not ideal as the water is heavily infested with (non-poisonous) jelly fish.
If booking here, you also need to be aware that the Palm location means the only way to get to the rest of Dubai is by a half hour taxi journey - or a long walk to the Atlantis to take the monorail to the mainland. Not a major problem, but if you plan to do a lot of sightseeing you need to factor in this additional cost and travel time.
