Ok, we've done it, we've stayed at the Atlantis on the palm, so we can tick it off the list.
In our opinion though, there are probably better value hotels else where in Dubai. Two years ago we stayed at the Jumeriah Beach, so if we end up in Dubai again, I would choose to stay there, than the Atlantis and they have the better water park too.
In brief, great aquarium, the kids will love it. Food in most restaurants good, the buffet restaurants have more kids running around obviously, but nice environment and lovely staff.
Drink expensive, £7.50 a pint, £12.00 glass of wine and £5.00 a litre of water, although they did leave a few bottles of water in the rooms daily.
A little busy around the pools, but it wasn't too bad, you can always find a nice spec for the day. The sun beds not too good though, broken shades, with nuts & bolts missing, so you had route for the good ones and whilst staying there over 7 days, none of the broken beds where removed or repaired.
Kids are ok, but some allowed to run riot with water guns and not asked to calm down by the attendants, who also watched kids throw a scrabble board game and all its contents into the pool and was left there all day for you to tread on exiting the pool.....little "F"
3 of us paid £3300 half board for 7 nights, the same deal at the Jumeriah Beach Hotel £2800, so the £500 is your drinks bill paid for.
So save your money and perhaps just visit for the day.
Oh, and ensure you stay at the opposite side to the zero pool, as they have a weekly private pool party that runs to around 2am, so you may not get much sleep that night.
No free Wifi either...i thought all hotels offered that nowadays !!!
