Returned yesterday from Dubai, have holidayed there many times and like to try different hotels.
We travelled economy with Virgin , plenty of leg room and even good inflight food. The Atlantis is just as I expected colourful and brash. Apparently we were upgraded to an Atlantis room form the deluxe we had booked, not sure of the difference but the room was big and comfortable. The pool area was fairly busy but plenty of sun loungers but no umbrellas, they use canaopies attached to the lounger, pretty ineffienct and impossible to shade both face and body from the sun. The sea was warm but cloudy, and the beach was mainly ground up ballast ( at least that what it seemed to me) not the white soft sand thats usual on Dubai beaches. I can see the hotel would appeal to families with children because of the Aqua adventure park and we did enjoy the Lost Chambers. We ate two evening meals in the hotel and ending up paying for neither as one was cold (served on cold plates too) and the other burned. Would I return to the Atlantis.. No.. Still think The Jumeriah Beach Hotel takes some beating!
