We had 4 days in the U.A.E. before our cruise to Rome on Oceania. I wanted a place with some local character rather than one of the high rise beach hotels. The Al Manzil appeared to fill the bill, especially with their Burj View Suites. It was perfect! We sat on our balcony at night and watched the Water Show behind the Souk al Bahar at the base of the Burj Kalifa with its own light show complementing the Water Show. The Hotel was small enough to offer some personal service, too. Especially the Front Office Manager, Mr. Mohammad Khan. My wife's arm was swelling up as a result of a pneumonia vaccine she got just before we left home. Mr. Khan was very concerned and offered to either transport my wife to a doctor or call one to the hotel. Fortunately, this did not become necessary, but Mr. Khan's concern was quite comforting to both of us. The remainder of the staff, especially the concierge desk, were very helpful in booking some desert adventures and they recommended buying our Top of the World tickets to the top of the world's tallest building on the the internet, to avoid unnecessary fees. The Bar at the Hotel featured the Australia-South Africa-New Zealand Rugby Union with "down under" beers, drinks and bartenders, too. HOT TIP for the UAE: Buy your alcohol at the Airport before you head into town - outside Hotels and Restaurants, alcohol is not available to tourists in any form.
