“Emirates Palace”
Reviewed 3 May 2012

The visit to Emirates Palace seems like a normal visit to a luxury hotel filled with big and small surprises. The Emirates Palace is a luxury, five star hotel located in the United Arab Emirates. The Hotel produces huge grounds and a beach overlooking the Persian Gulf.
Even after four years in the Emirates I was amazed at the beauty of the hotel. I was pleased about the fact that the usually sunny weather enables the visitor to play football and visit the beach day and night, meanwhile I was delighted at the small Aqua-park offered FOR FREE!!!
After such an afternoon spent outside Emirates palace provides luxury, very comfortable beds and a widescreen TV with many English and American channels.
For families I would reccomend to buy the provided double room. However the Hotel is not just a hotel for visitors, it has small cafes (with coffee sprinkled with golden dust), and excellent buffet with a variety of dishes Emirates Palace also has certain days when entertainment is the day's programme.

Well, what can you say! Its as fantastic and over the top as it looks in the photos and on their website. 1km from one side of the hotel to the other! On a lovely sandy beach with a pool section at either end of the hotel. The side that has the childrens large slide pool looked fantastic. Plenty to keep little ones amused (small playing area too).

The majesty of the place is breath taking - fairly standard for luxury hotels in this neck of the woods though. Bedrooms very spacious, with very comfy beds and lovely large bathrooms. Room service, concierge and butlers couldnt have been more helpful. Beware - it will take you a few days to find your way around though!!

Major draw back is the price!! We took a half board package, which I could highly recommend. It was still pricey, but if you were paying for meals here breakfast is £45 per person and you'd pay £100+ per night for two of you for dinner. A large bottle of water, coffee or Budweiser is £8!! Mind you - you should expect it in such a setting - still makes me mad though that when you pay such prices for the accommodation you cant even get a jug of water on the table for free when you are having dinner!! The food was good in the restaurants, but we were a little disappointed in the buffet restaurant for breakfast and dinner. It wasnt bad, but I have had better in the Burj Al Arab and The Meridian in Dubai, and my friend said the buffet in the Atlantis in Dubai was much better. There isnt too much to see in Abu Dhabi - they are expanding the area and trying for a more cultural approach compared with their neighbour Dubai (much more brash I think). One of the islands is building a Louvre and Gughenheim museum so they are going for the classier angle I think. No real markets or souks to look around (just the usual holiday tat that you get anywhere) and the malls are the same as England (and no cheaper). As ever, this region is good if you want to buy gold and diamonds.
Go over the road to the Eithad Towers hotel - Rays bar on the 62nd floor is fantastic (and the hotel foyer is worth a look while you are there too)

So similar to Dubai, its just a good place to go for a rest and relax with good weather and sumptuous surroundings - no real culture or things to do (although you must visit the fantastic huge mosque). If you want to go somewhere to recharge the batteries, be pampered and feel decadent for a few days then this is the place for you!

Room Tip: if you are going with kids, ask to be in the wing near the kiddies large slide pool. If you can affo...
