Combining a couple of days of working in Dubai with holiday we have chosen the Anantara. We appreciated the room with its own terrace and pool access. The pool was very large and very quiet, a perfect place to relax. Although the room showed the marks of some years of use and could have had a bit more cupboard space, it featured an excellent bed - we have enjoyed very good and deep sleep ! Breakfast was excellent, a lot of choice and eggs/pancakes prepared à la minute. Recommend to eat outside as inside it can be very noisy. The hotel has its private beach where we always found space : free towels are provided and a "room service" from the bar can be called from your lounger. We were really impressed with the different uniforms for all staff functions, their taylored fit and their cleanlyness. Staff were very attentive and friendly at all times. A special thanks to our housekeeper Raman who made our stay very enjoyable, work like this deserves the highest respect ! We will certainly consider returning to the Anantara at the Palm Read less

This is truly an excellent hotel with a great location. The room is very spacious and well decorated, and always kept clean. The restaurants offer a good variety of styles, and we never felt bored. A great place for family vacation!

Went to the beach at Anantara the palm - dubai and had an amazing day. It was quiet and relaxed, the staff were helpful and the sunset was serene! I recommend it for a mini getaway from the hustle and bustle.

Play area inside Crescendo restaurant is missing out on any proper format and looked like as if it is under development! Overall a nice experience! Read less
