As per all the reviews hotel is excellant and we had a lovely time (hubby + 5 year + 1 year). Hotel is very family friendly. Room was great and comfy, sapcious. We had just one room as my boys are little and the sofa bed not great but at that age they slept on it. If you have slightly older children, I dont think the sofa bed would be good.
The food and drink is pricy as expected and not the best I have had but good. Kids portions are big, so we stopped getting two and sharing. We really enjoyed Moana restaurant (seafood) and the others not so much. Breakfast in the big Manava was a mess, with very slow service and not as clean as the rest of the restaurants/hotel. I think they were struggling wth the morning rush, which is a pity as I have seen much busier less expensive hotels do it better, easy win for Sofitel.
Hotel is far from Dubai city (30/40mins drive) so nice if you don't plan to travel around much and just relax by the pool. Otherwise might be better to get a hotel closer to the City.
We did Legoland and the Gardon Glow/Dinausaur park which the kids loved and they were happy in the hotel's pools for the rest of the days.
