Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 5 nights just before Christmas and we had a wonderful stay - I would throughly recommend this hotel.
We arrived very early in the morning, about 5am and were greeted with very polite and friendly staff and even had a welcome drink of apple juice, much needed after a long flight. They checked us in straight away which was amaxing considering the time and very much appreciated!
The room was fantastic in every way - extremely clean, really big, fab view, very well presented with the biggest bed I have ever seen, crisp sheets, lots of pillows and very comfy. The bathroom was stunning with everything you could need, a seperate bath and shower, all marble, two sinks with amazing taps and a huge mirror! Robes and slippers too! Very luxurious! Plus a fantastic little extra - Molton Brown products to use!
The staff were very helpful and friendly for the entire stay. We had breakfast every morning which I would suggest doing as there was soooooo much choice everyone would be happy - not your average buffet - it was all well presented and yummy too! Staff always happy to top up your tea and coffee as well. You have breakfast in the Cavendish resturant, which is gorgeous. We also ate in there one evening for dinner - it is a la carte with a good menu and more yummy food and drinks!
The pool is area is unusual but I like it - it is in a cut out outside floor in the middle of the hotel - it has a bar with lovely cocktails, lots of lounges, a pool and a lovely jacuzzi. As it is has floors above it the pool doesn't get much sun but some of the sun loungers get lots of sun all morning and then as the sun goes round different loungers get the sun. This was fine for us as we hadn't gone to Dubai to sunbathe all day (even though it is sunny and cloudless all the time!) We used the loungers with the sun on in the morning and the jacuzzi was lovely and warm anyway so it didn't matter - there is so much to see in Dubai you want to be out and about. However if you did want to spend lots of time in a pool that was always in the sun, this is not the hotel for you.
Its location is in the New Dubai area, which is near the marina, which is amazing. There is a convience store right outside the hotel for anything you want to eat and drink (Its a mini supermarket with an impressive amount of choice for meals or snacks) then the metro is also very close to the hotel - a 5 minute walk if that. They are very regular and you can get a day pass to hop on and off as much as you want. It stops at many of the major places to see - all the shopping malls, Burj Kalifa, Dubai creek. Some other places you will need to get taxi's too, I get the impression no-one walks anywhere is Dubai there are taxis everywhere you go and they know everywhere you mention. The taxis are clean, drivers friendly, they all use a meter and they are pretty cheap. So location is not a problem.
Dubai is much more spread out than we thought it would be but with the metro and taxis getting around is easy and all taxi drivers knew where the hotel was. It is worth planning your days a bit though as this hotel is at one end of Dubai and then is is spread all along the coast so to save going back on yourself it is good to plan a bit.
We really couldn't fault this hotel or Dubai as a holiday destination. We want to return in the future and will definately staying here.
