We loved this hotel - it's small, tranquil (a bit of road noise but I imagine that's hard to escape anywhere in Dubai), and relaxing. We stayed for 1 night when we first arrived in Dubai, then returned for 2 more nights later the same week after a trip to Abu Dhabi and before returning home. The first night we were upgraded to a 3 bed villa with private pool (we were travelling as a family of 5) which was very nice, but we preferred the 2 rooms we had in the main hotel building when we returned for the second stay. The hotel rooms were very large and well equipped - great bathrooms, and every possible amenity. The public spaces and pool are lovely - very relaxing. We couldn't fault the service either, it was excellent, especially at the pool side restaurant and also at reception.
It is a bit out of town but we liked that - it's only 15 minutes by taxi to downtown (Dubai Mall etc), and 10/15 minutes to the airport. For us we much preferred this smaller, more low-key but luxurious and intimate hotel than the bright lights and glitz of the big hotels in town.
The spa was also excellent and watching the polo with a G&T whilst the sun goes down rounded the day off nicely.
