It is an impressive island. We used the monorail oneway and the taxi on our way back, so we got a good view.

I love this place and keeps me coming back again again and again !! like no other place on earth waking up in the morning and looking out at the palm from your hotel balcony!

I think this may have been the one thing that was a tad disappointing from what was otherwise a great trip and experience in Dubai. Due to the massive amounts of building going on around the Palm, and probably the biggest mall ever built once its finished, you don't really get a feel for what undoubtedly will be fantastic once...

We stayed on the palm and were quite surprised at how big it is - it took about 15-20 from our hotel in a taxi just to get back to the mainland. Good place to stay though.

One of the most ridiculous and poorly planned communities I've seen in a city full of ridiculous and poorly planned communities. If you've ever looked at it on a map and said "how are supposed to get around?" the answer is, you're not. You're supposed to look good on Google Earth and be happy with that. Its worth heading ot...

Maybe its better to view the Palm from air because apart from the Majestic Atlantis you cannot see much other than buildings still under construction. We took a tour on either side but could only see the Sea and walls. Can roam around Atlantis which is beautiful.

Atlantis is the anchor of Palm Islands. Truly a spectacle to see and experience...shops, eateries and residences.

You can't really get the feel of the Palm from the road, it would be much better from the air! We travelled along it and were told about the Film Stars and famous personalities who had bought properties there, but it's not the sort of place where you would want to get out of your car to have a walk...

During my recent stay in Dubai I stayed at Anantara the Palm which is located on the Eastern crescent of the Palm Jumeirah. - When you enter the island by car, there is no sign of the fact that you are on an island. I thought it was a bit disappointing. The trunk is densely built with high rise buildings,... More

Was told t do this monorail along the palm up to the Atlantis hotel. The view from the monorail is a must and a great view but the hotel is a little underwhelming as being a visitor, you cannot see much other than the foyer and a few restaurants. Obviously you need to be a guest to see more.
