Had a nightmare pick-up from the airport, was driven by a rude wannabe racing car driver, who threw us (2 adults and 3 kid) around like we weren't in the car. Arrived at the hotel with no one to greet or help us to unload our luggage, the driver just stood and was look for a tip!!! The cheek!! Eventually got to the reception desk. I was shocked to be told that they like to pre-approve my credit card for some hotel spending, when they have already pre-approved AED 51,000 for the room for my entire stay. I was not very happy at this point and started thinking that i have made a big mistake by booking this hotel. What was worst, was the room was not ready for our occupation, i.e. was only made up for 2 people and not a family. Having said, the rest of our stay was amazing the staff were friendly and made us all very welcomed. Overall a very nice experience except for the first 2 hours of our arrival.
