Gorgeous hotel, but we were extremely dissappointed in the service and quality at the pool of One & Only The Palm. What kind of a 5 star builds Marble floors near the pool? I nearly broke my neck slipping near the pool. I had to run after staff the whole day just to get some service. We were not allowed to eat at the pool which is unheard of, this meant we had to walk over to the restaurant to eat and that took time away from our pool day. Food was extremely disappointing, friend's said all their dishes tasted fishy, even the burger. Big shame cause its a beautiful hotel. Definitely not going back. Read less

Only & Only returned back my smile. Amazing property and an incredible view from 101. I'm happy to meet Faneesha, she is professional. We got our cake and a nice bed decor. Luckily my sister booked for next coming month, I'll be here soon again.

We were a party of four celebrating our 20th year in Dubai. Started our day-out with an excellent selection of cakes and sandwiches offered during afternoon tea. The staff are politely engaging and thoroughly pleasant. And off we go to 101 Dining and Lounge for the happy hour. Raul assisted us. He is very knowledgeable and even recommended the restaurant for dinner. Whilst enjoying our aperitivo, Andaya/Sandaya made sure that we’re tended to at all times. We had the most amazing time that we decided to stay for dinner. The service, the food...well the entire dining experience was made special by Ankit and the entire team. They even offered us a cake for our 20th in Dubai. 😍😅 This property is indeed beautiful and the staff made it truly The One&Only! Read less
