Location: Excellent ! It's almost close to everything. The negative part of it is that there's no walking space in the hotel surrounding. In other words, once you step out you need to get a cab to go anywhere. As far as I know there's no supermarket or restaurant or anything around unless you have a car or willing to walk in the desert in construction sites.
The good part is that the hotel facilitated going to Dubai Mall by a cozy Mercedes van that transfers guests to the mall every 15 mins throughout the day. It doesn't take you back though so you'll still need to stand in the taxi line on the way back.
Apartments: Very clean and pleasant with nice long balconies. It was cool to have fridge, hair dryer, cooker and washing machine but no microwave though !! They provide nice spa materials from elemis (tiny free samples) which is ok.
Staff: That was one key plus at the new hotel! The Egyptian guys Mohamed, Islam, Yasmeen and other like Diana, Austin at the pool and everyone else are extremely nice and hospitable. The spa ladies are helpful too even though their manager Christina isn't as cooperative.
Facilities: Very clean and rich gym and superb spa facilities really made my stay for 10 days at Damac. I used the gym almost everyday then enjoyed the sun by the pool side. Despite the construction around I took some lovely view shots for burj Khalifa from the hotel and my apartment on the 35th floor.
I'd also like to thank Damac for the free Arabic coffee and cookies at the lobby, free cookies is always a heartwarming idea.
I'll definitely visit again at the soonest convenience !
