We stayed over at the Fairmont last weekend and it was a nice get away on the palm in Dubai.
Although the start was a little shaky, as it took over 40 minutes to get our suitcase to the room, and our room wasn't cleaned after we specifically asked for it to be, and things just took forever when we ordered room service. I'd still give it a "one thumb up".
The up note is the front desk manager was very helpful (you know who you are). She tried to rectify the issues we had and although we weren't given a complimentary beer or glass of wine (?) we still got a nice juice to tide us over while waiting for things to be resolved.
The pool and cabanas are great. Nice relaxing place, although the pool bar staff are never around to take an order. We still were able to enjoy the surroundings. There aren't any activities like kayak or water skiing (which would be nice), but if you're looking for a place to chill this would be it. Might be a little pricey in comparison to other hotels in the area though.
Thanks to the front desk manager who made us chuckle a little, what would have been a bad review turned into a pretty good one.
