This was our first trip to Dubai. We booked a queen double club room sea views and we're not disappointed. The room, service and amenities were superb.
Accessing the hotel is another matter. Fortunately we booked the hotel limousine service from the airport in advance and we're glad we did. Arriving close to midnight in a new or strange location is often difficult. The driver was punctual, courteous and spoke good English. He provided a running commentary en route. The cost was 190 Dirham = $60AUD for the 35 minute trip.
We used a taxi at the hotel for the return to the airport at a cost of 75Dirham = $25 AUD
We stayed 3 days and had breakfast at the hotel. Massive selection and good egg station.
The hotel is certainly the best located for beach access but is quite a distance from shopping malls. A good hotel shuttle is available.
During our stay we used taxis but none of the drivers were familiar with accessing the hotel and due to roadworks we twice left the taxi a block away and walked to the hotel.
We also used the Metro or Skytrain once. Very efficient driverless trains but no stop very handy to the hotel so reasonable walk in 40 c heat was required or taxi again from the metro stop.
The hotel and staff cannot be faulted. Once the roadworks are complete access will be much improved. All previous good review comments are endorsed.
Recommended to all travellers.
