I stayed here due to a missed connection in Dubai. I entered through the Emirates reception area, which is not very impressive. I was brought to my room, which another reviewer has said needed a bit of renovation. It was fine, but not what you would call five star. I felt I was in a three star hotel and was wondering what I would do while waiting for my flight. There was no information in the room re facilities etc. Then I took a walk! And was amazed. There was another reception area which was really impressive. If found two separate pools with plenty of sunbeds in each. Later on I found a third pool for lane swimming. I have received vouchers for meals, which seems to cover 12 restaurants. On investigation, I discovered the Meridien Village! A small village on the campus with about 10 restaurants and an Irish pub. I also later found a really good gym.
So if you end up here, don't be fooled by the dingy room, it has fantastic facilities. The rooms aren't great, but I think that is only some as I saw others which looked really nice. As someone else said maybe the Royal Club is the way to go, but I am not sure of the cost.
The only other cautionary note is in relation to WiFi. I had travelled all over Asia with free WiFi, but here the minimum charge is $17 for access. Granted this gives you 8 hours, but if you only want an hour or so, it is very pricey.
