Have been coming to Dubai more than once a year for over 25 years. Have stayed at almost all the top end hotels in Dubai and I can with confidence say this is the best hotel in Dubai. Wish I had stayed here sooner. Stayed in Room 307 for 6 nights from 8 July 19. Here is my evaluation: 1) Service - it is absolutely amazing. By day two everyone knows you by name. Don't know how they do it. My host Russell checked in every day to organise dinner plans and other activities. Service in the restaurants was perfect. Check-in check out easy and quick. Service at the pool best I have ever experienced despite 40C heat. Hats off to the staff working at the pool. 2) Rooms - I was travelling alone and took the most basic room which was bigger than any room elsewhere in Dubai. The look and feel is great. Wish I could have moved in permanently. What I loved the most is the Nespresso machine in the room. I am such a coffee addict and so often get bad or no coffee in rooms. A Nespresso machine should be mandatory in any hotel room like the One and Only have managed! 3) Pool - beautiful, relaxing, service amazing. Had the best Dark Martini ever at the pool. After a day or so the team knew my favourite spot and drinks and put down towels before I arrived. Pool never felt crowded. There is also an adult pool but I didn't try it out. 4) Beach - is nice for the Palm. Not like in the Maldives but probably one of the best beaches in Dubai because it is clean and tons of space and some nice views of the Dubai Maria. I prefer the pool however. 5) Restaurants - great quality food. I am very picky eater and can tell very easily good quality food from poor quality food and I can say this is the best hotel food I have ever had. The menu is focused on quality over quantity but I always found something I liked in both Zest and Stay. Didn't try the 101 restaurant. Breakfast was good and service was very nice. You get a discount if you travel to their sister hotel the Royal Mirage. Next door is also the Zabeel Saray in case you want a change of food choice. 6) Gym - was very pleasantly surprised about the gym. Good size, and good selection of equipment. Many other hotel gyms in Dubai are pretty small. 7) Relaxation - overall the resort is very quiet and I got a really good rest. I will definately come again and make this my regular Dubai hotel and can highly recommend to my friends and family. My tip is to call the hotel to discuss your room requirements. They have quite a few options and it wasn't too clear to me when I booked. Read less

From the most personal and fabulous welcome to our taxi back to the airport ,the staff at the One & Only provide THE most exceptional customer service. Every staff member is humble and fabulously obliging. The property has excellent restaurants ,which include a 3 star Michelin standard. The pools area are classy and comfortable . The accommodations again are classy ,spacious ,and provide great furnishings ,and bedding. Aqua Parma toiletries, Egyptian cotton bedding . But the undoubted stars of this hotel are the staff . We will be back . I really feel like I am valued when I am here and that I am treating myself to the very best . 10/10 Read less

The pictures of this hotel online don’t do it justice. The entrance when you arrive provides an immediate sense of relaxation and is very refreshing. The rooms are very spacious and the bed linen is luxurious. The pool area is tranquil and the pool itself of 50 metres and gorgeous. Service is prompt but not in your face. The food is excellent.… Read more

Can’t wait to go back. Our dedicated “butler” Russell made our stay perfect - thanks Russell. And so did all of the staff. I loved the managers at breakfast at Zest. Exquisite food at the main restaurant at night. And delicious cocktails and food at The 101! Read less
