We booked an aiport transfer and picked up in a BMW 7series. The one way transfer cost 250dhs ($90). We took a city taxi when departing the hotel which cost only 70dhs ($25).
Hotel check in was quick and smooth, the Imperal Club was cross sold to us and we took it. We later took it off as we found Saffron to have buffet specials, which we hadn't been told about at check in. Overall, dining and this hotel whether it be breakfast lunch or dinner is SUPER expensive. It's actually cheaper to take a taxi and dine out.
The pool area is magnificant. The biggest pool i've ever been in. The water seems so fresh and always clean. Lots of sunbeds. Towels are provided, which are nice and large. Because of the size of the pool, it never seems too crowded. During Ramadan, the pool was open until midnight. The hotel gave out complimentary popsicles during the day. There were delicious.
Really basic rooms, nothing special. Stained carpet and couches. Vegas hotels and hotel rooms are MUCH more outstanding compared to Atlantis Dubai.
Good fun. The tube rides land you in the lazy river, which is the greatest lazy river. You can stay in the lazy river and it will take you to all the rides. There are conveyor belts and passages that take you to rides, rapids, etc. so you never have to get out the tube and line up for a ride.
I would recommend going to the Karama Market if you'r interested in knock off purses, clothing, wallets, etc or souvenirs. Meena Bazar if you're interested in Indian clothing. Dubai Outlet Mall is too far and no real deals. Burjaman, Dubai Mail and Mall of the Emirates REALLY expensive. If you've seen malls in North America, they're the same.
Jumeirah Beach Hotel - there's a British Pub called Dhow and Anchor, this pub has 14 beers on draft, happy hour from 9:30-10:30 and the best fish and chips ever.
Coming to Atlantis Dubai...be prepared to spend LOTS of money. Every restaurant is expensive. Probably won't be back.
