This was our third time at One&Only, Royal Mirage, Dubai. Things looked promising, although the high-rises are encroaching ever closer.
This was just a one night stay. When booking in we asked about the possibility of a late checkout. Yes, but an extra Dh 300 for about 3 hours. No thankyou.
We were unable to book a particular room on-line, but reception did agree for our room to be moved to the ground floor (no extra charge). We wanted to be able to sit outside the room and watch the peacocks, but unfortunately, they no longer visit.
The pool was surprisingly quiet, even for out of season. Cold drinks were brought for free, but nowhere to eat or have additional drinks.
We ate dinner at the Arabian Court as usual. Excellent choice of food. But it was becoming clear that there were few other hotel guests around.
Internet was a bit hit or miss. The welcoming brochure stated only 2 devices at a time for the free WiFi, otherwise a variety of expensive packages. I thought this was an outdated practice?
I hope we were just unlucky this time, because the reviews alongside mine are far more generous with their praises.
We will almost certainly go back again for a fourth stay. We had our wedding reception here, so many happy memories.More
