We have spent many holidays in The One & Only Palace Hotel, and always have the most amazing time there. So, there was no question about where we would make our 1st holiday after 'lockdown', once our Government took the UAE off the Red List We arrived in September and stayed in the Arabian Court for the begining of our holiday, and that was our 1st time of staying there. We loved it very much - thank you to all the Team However, we were so happy when we heard that The Palace was re-opening on 1st October, after some fabulous re-furbishments etc, and we had the offer of moving there....................we jumped at the chance of once again being home from home! We were absolutely delighted to find that everything was still so perfect - the Staff, the Restaurants, the Pools, the spectacular Gardens, the Rooms, the Beach, the Jetty etc. and some fabulous surprises too! The Beach Bar & Grill with the new infinity Pool, the new Sundbeds, the new paving around the Pool, to name but few.... We felt so safe at all times, and the cleanliness around the whole Resort was absolutely second to none - the Rooms, the Communal areas, the Restaurants etc. They had dedicated Teams cleaning, cleaning cleaning day in, day out! Everything was immaculate Thank you to all of you at The Palace and Arabian Court for making our holiday so so special, and going out of your way to make everything so perfect!! Read less

We returned to the One & Only and this time stayed at the Residence & Spa. After not having the opportunity to get away, what a tonic this was. The protocol was followed to the letter and everywhere appeared very safe and very well organised and controlled. The standard of the rooms matched everything one would expect from the One & Only Group and again the food in all the restaurants was fantastic. We loved the pool area at the Residence and the way that the boys around the pool looked after you. The beach was immaculate and cleaned every morning. We really enjoyed the personal service one received at the Residence in the beautiful restaurant, with Ivan, Belinda and Nisa doing everything that was required and more. We had a fabulous time and we will be back next year, all willing. Read less

What a wonderful hotel, the staff, the service and just everything is perfect. The management make sure they know you and go out of their way to speak to you to ensure everything to your liking. Loved the pool area and the nice extra touches of coolers and waiter service as well as sunglasses polishing! We stayed on a half board basis which was great but would have liked the option of lunch as opposed to diner. Small niggle and really did not matter in the whole quality of this place. Already booked for next year. Read less
