Am amazing property offering beautiful Arabian style architecture and ambiance. Relaxing and tranquil, set on the edge of the Palm. Staff are welcoming and professional, nothing is too much trouble. Beautiful restaurants and amazing choice of cuisines to choose from.

My friend and I were looking for a winter getaway where we could get some sun and relax. Dubai seemed to tick the box for this. The hotel was absolutely fantastic. Check in was very smooth and the staff were very helpful. The room was spacious and we had lovely balcony overlooking the pool which had a city view. Hotel management kindly invited us to a cocktail hour one evening. We spent most of our time in the hotel and only went out a couple of times. The restaurants were fantastic. I would definitely recommend going to Eua Zone. The jetty bar has a beautiful view too. Would recommend getting the boat over to the hotel at the palm. The service by the pool was brilliant. Staff were extremely attentive and tended to our every need. The afternoon doughnuts by the pool were a welcome treat. I will definitely be coming back to this hotel. Read less

From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty! Despite the fact we arrived early morning we were escorted to a lounge for coffee and a seamless, easy check in, as our room was obviously not ready at 10am they offered us breakfast which they didn’t have to do, nice, caring touch. They went out of their way to ensure our room was available ASAP and we were delighted it was ready by 1:30! Room was a good size, spacious, clean and serviced twice a day! We have been lucky enough to stay at many 5 star hotels worldwide including Dubai but I have to say this one is definitely one of the best! Everything about it is wonderful! The ambiance, the decor, the wonderful staff, every one of them especially our room attendant Stephan! We ate at all the restaurants and the food in each one was exceptional, but amazing in the French restaurant Celebrities, the 3 courses were absolutely delicious! We also ate twice at Eau Zone which is Asian food...... amazing, Nina’s the Indian ...... fantastic, Moroccan......... delicious! The Beach restaurant twice which is steak and fish.... the steak just melted in your mouth! Lunch at the poolside restaurant was very nice! Even the buffet restaurant Olives which we would normally avoid as we don’t like buffets was excellent, the chef made the nicest risotto I have had fresh and brought to our table! The soup was so nice I had both kinds! We also Visited the hotel on the Palm by speedboat (fabulous) and had a lovely lunch and a few drinks, well worth a visit especially as we got the speedboat! The grounds are immaculate, gorgeous swimming pool, you can use the Arabian court bars and restaurants including the rooftop bar which is fantastic! Drinks reasonably priced for Dubai and the fact you’re in 5 star premises! Would pay the same price for drinks on 5 star hotels at home! Breakfast in Celebrities was a first class most relaxing experience, no children under 8, lovely continental buffet with an a la carte option for hot food, the waiters here were exceptional! We usually do not return to hotels as we like to try different experiences however we will 💯 be returning to this gorgeous hotel that surpassed my high expectations, in fact we can’t wait! Thank you again for 10 fantastic days to all the wonderful friendly staff who are amazing and helpful without being overbearing, from the lovely bellboys to the guy doing the pool activities (I’m so sorry I forgot your name) to all the waiters and waitresses! We had absolutely no issues what so ever! We look forward to seeing you all again soon Read less

A wonderful warm welcome to the hotel immediately made us feel special.

A wonderful warm welcome to the hotel immediately made us feel special. A gong to announce our arrival, various staff members came to introduce themselves and even a room upgrade as it was our babymoon. The hotel is beautiful and extremely clean in all areas. Every staff member I met couldn't do enough to help and nothing was too much trouble. We were half board and the choice of restaurants included was fantastic. We went for 6 nights and didn't eat in the same evening restaurant twice, I cant decide which was my favourite place to eat! The location is great in terms of seeing sights and getting taxi's is really easy. I wouldn't hesitate to go back to Dubai and stay at this hotel. I felt so relaxed and looked after and made the whole trip very special for my husband and me. Read less

We spent a week at the Palace with our 18 months old daughter. It was an amazing holiday and fantastic experience from the moment with stepped into the lobby. Great restaurants, stylish and modern room, friendly service and a nice pool area and beach. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a relaxing break, especially with kids. We will return!
