Third trip to Dubai and my best yet. A fantastic quality hotel with fantastic service and good attention to detail. Better value in my opinion to the beach hotels and very well located being just 15-20 mins from the airport. Taxis are very cheap and we learned that the red-roofed ones are the best value. It's worth a 10 minute walk to the nearest metro station (Health care city) and ends up being very cheap to get about with an all day ticket. Do the big malls like the Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates but just 10 min walk away is the Wafi Mall (signposted by the building shaped like a pyramid). It is crazily quiet and super quality.
Food in hotel super quality and good value. Wox was our favourite and very informal but the duck salad in the panini bar was also super. We had an early arrival but were given use of lounge with lovely refreshments and we just jumped in a taxi to a Mall until our room was ready (early at 1pm rather than 2pm). We didn't go for option offered of a creek view upgrade at extra cost but were then given it anyway!
Book early to go up the Burj Khalifa, through Desert Adventures got us a place as it was sold out if you just went to the booking desk. Be aware that you don't go literally to the uppermost floor - the observation deck is at floor 154 rather than 200. Thoroughly worth the £50 it cost the two of us in total. A real highlight was the fountain show at night whilst sat outside the restaurants at the base of the Burj Khalifa in the Dubai Mall. Food in the Malls is very reasonable and in fact cheaper than back home. We found an organic restaurant in both main malls that we loved and ate for about £8 for a main course salad with chicken.
Travelling at Easter is perfect for the best weather but I will avoid Uk summer months and perhaps head back at Christmas. New Years would be amazing but all the restaurant tables near the Khalifa are already booked!!
We cannot wait to return and would not hesitate to check-in to the Hyatt again. Great pool service and the free ice-lolly was a nice treat as was pistachio chocs on the first night. Enormous breakfast selection!
