I'm staying at the hotel at the moment and after a long flight I thought I would relax by the pool. Unfortuantely relaxation is not an option! In conjunction with the Friday brunch there is a pool party in full swing. Apart from going deaf from the House music, most of the sun loungers are occupied by people who arent even staying in the hotel! I'm lying on the hardest piece of moulded plastic in existence. No cushioning at all...5 stars?
I went to reception to discuss the situation and to be fair the girl on reception was obliging but the solution from management was to offer to pay for a taxi to a beach.
A good 5 star experience is all about balance and so far Conrad Dubai is failing miserably. Which reminds me that the coffee I ordered 30 minutes ago hasn't arrived!
I booked for 1 night because I had seen mixed reviews. It will be my last. Tomorrow I will move to Grosvenor House which is where I should have gone from the start. It is a bit more expensive but as a hotel it is a different world.
P.S. the guy next to me just asked if I got my coffee because noone has been back to take his order!
