Me and my mum wanted to go to Dubai for a couple of weeks over Christmas , and after much deliberating , we decided on this paticular hotel with a travel agency. A fabulous car taxied us to the hotel , and we arrived to find a busy main road literally outside (about 10 lanes!) Reception weren't very friendly and did not understand English very well. We paid a lot for a two week 4* hotel , and this was definitely not. The first room we were put in was dirty and small , with drawers hanging off. We emailed before arriving to make sure we had a room with a view of the marina, an we had a room that was facing the wall. It was 11 o clock at night when we arrived so we were tired , and lugging baggage around this hotel. We went back downstairs to complain , and we were put in another room , this time worse, and again no communication from the staff. This time the room smelt of cigarrettes, was again extremely small, and there was a used baby cot still up in it. We ended up in the first bedroom at midnight!! The food was also poor. The pool area was also dirst , the pool being freezing because it never saw the sun all day. The only plus point of the hotel was the rep we had to organise our trips. Wifi to buy there was also very expensive. We definitely wouldn't book this hotel again , and would recommend against it. Such a shame.
