Today we returned to UK after a wonderful Trailfinders 14 days personalised tour : 11 nights in China, and the last 3 nights in Dubai at Atlantis.
This is an amazing and large hotel at the end of the Palm. We were warmly welcomed and because we were early we received a complimentary upgrade to an Atlantis guest room in the West tower with a sea view. The room was spacious and well designed and really looks as good as on the hotel's web-site. Excellent walk in shower with rain head, separate toilet, and deep bath opening out into the room via sliding doors.
We set off for a tour around the hotel to get our bearings. We were on a half-board arrangement through Trailfinders and thank goodness as the prices are 5 star for food and drink. For example 2 cheeseburger meals with fries and a soft drink was 130 AED, around £22; 2 x 500ml bottles of pepsi by the pool were 40 AED, around £3.45 each. You get the picture.
The highlight at Atlantis is the waterpark and swimming with dolphins.
If you are looking for a quiet hotel for mainly adult couples then this hotel is probably not for you. This is an upmarket family friendly hotel with excited children everywhere.
We booked evening meals in Saffron, Rostang and Locatelli restaurants. Of the three we most enjoyed Locatelli for its Italian food, then Rostang (French brasserie) and finally Saffron. Saffron was a huge restaurant with buffet food from around Asia. Although the food quality was very good the room size made it impossible to generate a relaxed atmosphere.
