  • Awesome facility and great ambience... well designed architecture and design for the Dubai race course facility. They hold the worlds most expensive race. The Dubai World Cup, worth 1 Million Dollars. Every last Saturday of March, this competition is held with pomp and grandeur and visited by thousands and thousands of enthusiastic followers. The weather at this time of the year is just pleasant enough to be outdoors and enjoy the race in full force.
  • Impressive facility, including a posh hotel overlooking the race course. The horses and the people are fantastic! The Western spectators were dressed up for the occasion to the finest details, including feathers in their hats. Enjoyed the green grass and the air that seemed a bit cleaner than the rest of Dubai. Tennis courts available too.
  • There's a lot going for living in this area - Polo residence apartments are spacious and airy. Spinneys being built, Fitness, pool and cafĂ© now open, proximity to Meydan hotel and racecourse complex with restaurant, bars and clubs a plus. It's a quiet location for singletons, couples and especially families with Tennis academy and good bilingual French/English school within walking distance. Great views of the Downtown skyline. Love living here.
  • What an incredible sporting venue. The size is staggering, the service first class and the racing was pretty good too. World Cup night did not disappoint.
  • Incredible place if you love horse racing. The hospitality is great and during a normal season is much less than in the UK. You can get good food (4 course meal) and unlimited beverages from 6pm to 10pm for 495aed each. World cup day is far more expensive, for the same it's between 3000 and 6000aed per person, apron views are normally free in normal season or 400-600aed on world cup day. If you want to go to the world cup in hospitality, make sure you book your tickets as soon as they come out in December/January as they sell out quickly! The world cup is not an experience to be missed and definitely worth the money if you can afford it!
