We stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights and we were not wowed. The service mediocre and no turn down service offered. All the restaurants are overpriced. The experience mediocre but I understand why someone stays there with kids. We will probably not stay there again.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating A fun place

we visited atlantis for the day and was quite impressed, the aquarium if the greatest iv ever seen. The main attraction for me was the water park although a little costly its worth it. My only criticism was the lack of food stalls we could only find one and it was an absolute rip off for cheap crapy food.

Definitely a place worth staying in, good amenities, pool, spa and gym. Amazing aquarium. Nearly everything is good, service is fast, food in restaurants is high quality. Also, despite the size, everything is easily walkable and reachable without fuss. Like the aqua park, the beach and the views from the room. Because of its size, getting the car from valet takes a little longer. It’s also a little pricey compared to other quality destinations in Dubai. But the wow factor from indoor aquarium and water park on site makes it worth the stay with the kids Read less
