  • We had no idea what to expect, as our travel agent booked this "because it's my favourite hotel in Dubai". We were wondering if it was too isolated given the 30 minutes or so it took from the airport and arriving at night, it seemed like we were in the middle of nowhere. What a delightful surprise the next morning to open our curtains to the beautiful ocean views. The room and the public areas of the hotel are absolutely palatial. The restaurants are a delight and the package included a lunch or dinner every day, plus breakfast, so all in all really good value. We used the free meal passes to dine at the Burj Al Arab, which is a sister hotel and experience the feel of this (world first) 7 star hotel as well. Also included is a courtesy bus to take guests to the Emirates shopping centre and a couple of other attractions but taxi travel is fairly cheap anyway.
  • I went for the World Cup Horse Race and was blown away by the level of service. I see why it has 7 stars. 24 hour butler service. The suites are like a gorgeous NYC apt. It was an experience to remember. If you ahve the chance I say GO, SEE DO!!!
  • Had a perfect stay for my wife's birthday. The team was fantastic and the hotel amenities are perfect. The room was flawless. Definitely recommend that hotel. Best one I've ever stayed in.
  • Visited Burj Al Arab, before going inside you will need to book a reservation in any restaurant if you are not staying in the hotel. The security is really good as you will get checked twice before entering. Casual smart dress. The building is beautiful and the location is amazing. If you are interested in architecture/civil engineering then this is the place you need to visit and see the amazing work and details inside. Customer Service 5/5 Facilities 5/5 Food 5/5 Price 2/5 Location 5/5
  • A class above the rest, excellent service, amazing room. An experience my wife and i will never forget! Highly recommended
