This was my second time at the OO Royal Mirage and the first time with my fiancee. When you decide to go back to a resort after talking about it for 12months you can only hope it is as good as you remembered! It surpassed my expectations and blew my fiancee away. From the moment we arrived, the service was amazing. After a long flight they check you in at the lounge of reception, you're offered refreshments and the receptionist runs you through what is included in your stay. They even noted that I had stayed before and on arrival welcomed me back. We were celebrating my partners birthday and the Mr Sharma, the Resident Manager, kindly upgraded our room, which was amazing, they also had a gorgeous chocolate and macaroon plate set up in our room. We were half board which allowed us to dine around the restaurants in the O&O complex, the Arabian Court was closing 2 days after our arrival and they extended our HB to include the restaurant at the O&O The Palm. We tried all the restaurants and the only one which we didn't particularly rate was the Moroccan restaurant, but that was down to the set menu options as opposed to the quality of the food or staff. We also chose to go to the Drift Beach Club on his actual birthday and again, that was a top class day, the DJ was excellent. The level of service at the O&O resorts are unparalleled, every time you leave the resort and return, the staff welcome you back by your name, the attention to detail is on another level. There's newspapers at your door in the morning, after your room is cleaned you get a refreshed bowl of fruit and the turn down service includes fresh bottles of water every evening. The team that bring you towels and water at the pool & beach are lovely & really friendly, on one of the days they even reserved our spot at the pool for us. The location is perfect, at the foot of the palm it's within a short taxi journey to anywhere you want to go. I can not recommend this hotel enough, so much so, that we are starting our honeymoon with a stopover in Dubai at the O&O Royal Mirage, The Palace. Read less

Both myself and partner travel extensively for work and I can honestly say the experience we've had at One&Only has been up there with the very best! For starters the staff, and there's a lot of them have an incredible way of remembering guests names and what they do day to day, to give it the ultimate personal touch. Four members of staff in particular made our stay so memorable, Robin on front of house was so pleasant from the minute we arrived, Jordi in Celebrities Restaurant with his wealth of knowledge coming from a 3 Michelin Star venue was incredible during dining, Nadim was extremely kind and upgraded us to the most stunning suite looking over the pool and Fayaz who at the drop of a hat seemed to sort anything, including a front row table at dinner for the fountain show at Burj Khalifa, with 10 minutes notice! The property itself is absolutely stunning and must span 300 - 400 meters of private beach which houses multiple pools and high end bars. The main lobby is like something from an Indiana Jones movies and the rooms are extremely classy with a touch of Arabic styling. When we come back to Dubai, there's only one place we'll be staying from now on :) Read less

My daughter and I stayed at The Palace At One & Only 13th - 29th December. From the moment we arrived until the day we left we were made to feel very special and very well looked after. Prior to arrival I had contacted the hotel to request a room on a high floor, extra pillows and extra hangers. Check in was swift and professional and all our pre-requests were all in place. This is a beautiful resort, gardens, pool and beach all very well maintained. There is an abundance of staff in all areas maintaining this resort to the highest level. We requested Housekeeping to clean our room early each morning and this was carried out every day - in addition the evening turn down service and bathroom refresh was carried out every night. A nice touch was a little Xmas tree and chocolate gifts in our room prior to Xmas eve. We didn’t try all the restaurants but the ones we did try were 1st class - Olives, Esplanade, Beach Bar and Grill and Eauzone. I have stayed in many 5* resorts where the buffet can be a bit disappointing with poor choice and cold food - not at Olives, the Chefs are a credit to this hotel - absolutely faultless. Special mention to Olive Managers, especially Stanley and also Neha and Anoop for their lovely welcome and attention to detail at breakfast and dinners. Thank you to all the staff and Managers in all the restaurants. Refreshing to see a resort where Managers come out from behind their desks and offices and speak to the guests and genuinely show an interest. Thank you also to Guest Services, Reception and Front Door staff for assistance in our dining bookings and travel. Finally, coming from what is regarded as a cold country (Scotland) a large part of our vacation was spent at the pool. Nice to see a hotel that spaces out their sun loungers so there is lots of room, even when the resort got busy at Xmas and extra loungers brought in there were still lots of lovely spaces. Special thanks from my daughter and myself to Roshan and Akhil for looking after us so well at the pool every day from first thing in the morning until we left. Their hospitality was genuine and these two young men are an asset to your organisation. We have stayed at many 5* resorts in UAE and throughout the world but the service we received at One & Only surpassed all others. We certainly hope to return and would highly recommend. Read less

Thanks to the whole team for making our second visit as great as the first. Every member of the team smiles and goes out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. A special mention to the guys on the entrance and the pool team for the great welcome every day.
