We arrived on a 6am flight in to Dubai and had requested early check in via the booking. We were given early check in to our rooms quickly and this helped massively with young kids (3yo and 7mo). The staff are fantastic and very friendly. The hotel is nice at close to airport too. The staff on welcome are extremely helpful and friendly. Making sure we go into our room right away to sleep.
The airport is 15-20mins drive only maximum and by standard taxi you can get there for around 25-40AED one way. this is very good compared to the hotel shuttle which charges 250AED one way. There are the pink taxis available which have female drivers which provide a great service. Ask for the pink taxi when at the taxi stand.
The room was fantastic and the first stay we faced towards the city side. It can be hazy if there are dust/sand storms but worth the view to see the skyline. The room was on the 9th floor and was clean and spacious.
If arriving in the morning, the restaurants in the hotel aren't all open early so best to consider the room service option if you like. Their buffer breakfast is open from 6am which serves plenty of continental food. If you are arriving with younger kids, the buffet is great as its setup and quick.
The second stay for us on the return trip was on the 13th floor with a larger grand room facing the creek. This looks over the pool and gardens towards the airpot. The view is nice and the room was a larger space than we had previously stayed in. Very well setup and extremely clean so very happy with that. There is access with this package to get into a grand package which provides access to level 14 their club room. Didn't get to use this unfortunately.
The pool facilities are great and they have a kids area with slides, shallow pool and floating aids. It wasn't busy as there is plenty of space to spread out and relax. There is also a kids play ground next to the pools which is really convenient.
Wafi Centre for shopping is 2mins by cab (take the cab as it gets very hot).
Great restaurant called Khan Murjan which serves some brilliant food and the location/atmosphere is fantastic. Bit of the old city feel about it. Worth the drive and eat.
If you are driving to Dubai Mall its around 15mins drive and around 30mins to the beach area.
Overall I would highly recommend this hotel for a stay and will definitely make our way back there.
