We spent one night and two days here at the end of a week's break in Dubai.
The foyer is huge and amazing, reception and check in was efficient considering the sheer volume of guests. Our rooms were available at 10am which was great. We were on the 13th floor overlooking the ocean and the front of the hotel. The room itself was clean, and spacious, with tea and coffee facilities, fridge and large tv. The decor was quite muted in comparison with the rest of the hotel.
We spent time at the waterpark which was good fun, but would probably be hard pushed to make a full day out of it. There were loads of lifeguards so felt very safe. There are places to buy food and drink, which whilst not cheap, were not as extortionately expensive as they could have been. Ramadan was not adhered to whilst in the hotel. There are a couple of large pools, again with plenty of lifeguards. The beach was ok, my friend was stung by a jellyfish though which put us off going back there. Towels are readily available at the pool, beach and waterpark.
We ate at the Kalaediscope Restaurant on both of the evenings, and were very happy with the variety and quality of the food, all tastes were catered for. We paid around £35 per person (including a drink) on the first night, the second we went to the Iftar Buffet which was very good, and we paid slightly less and soft drinks were included.
The hotel really is something out of Disney - there's plenty to look and marvel at, but it isn't a relaxing atmosphere. It's massively noisy and busy with lots of families and children enjoying themselves. It was good for a one night experience, but it won't be to everyone's taste - it's not somewhere I could imagine going again. I don't want to be too harsh, as I know for some people it would be a dream holiday. It's a place for families with children, and really that's the only people I personally would recommend it to.
