Sofitel Dubai The Palm

Dubai Beach, Dubai Beaches and beyond

The hotel

This Polynesian-themed resort, Sofitel Dubai The Palm is a luxurious, sumptuous accommodation complemented by a range of world-class facilities, including first port of call, the SoSPA, to take advantage of the many treatments designed to get you in the holiday mood! There is also a great choice of fabulous swimming pools to choose from or grab a towel and claim your space on the hotel’s own private stretch of beach. At the beach, indulge in myriad water sports or simply soak up the sun whilst getting stuck into a good book – pure bliss! There are plenty of accommodation options but whatever you decide upon, all boast their own private balcony, the perfect place we think to enjoy a spot of breakfast or a cocktail at sundown. Whilst parents are at play, children will be having the time of their life too at the Amura Kids' Club. Meanwhile, tuck into a juicy steak on the open terrace at Porterhouse and come sundown, the pace picks up.

The hotel is amazing, really huge with all the facilities needed. There are like 5-6 restaurants, I tried only one, next to the pool but it was excellent. The pool is huge and they have a very large private beach. You are really on holidays there.

We stayed at the Sofitel this month during the Coronavirus pandemic, while it was unfolding. The hotel made, what was quite a scary and uncertain time, very calm and reassuring, but were very thorough in the measures they took to adhere to the social distancing and Dubai covid 19 regulations. 3 staff in particular, 2 door men Jaua and Kamarn, and Samson who worked around the swimming pool area, were 3 of the loveliest friendliest men I have met. They went over and beyond to speak to us every day, and help in every way they could. My son Michael loved Kamarn and Jaua, and would ask to go down to visit his friends! He is 2! Thankyou so much for making our trip as enjoyable as it could be given the circumstances, you guys were fab. Read less

Really nice hotel with excellent staff, all very helpful. We had our flight cancelled so had to stay another night. Staff at reception sorted out with little fuss. Had to do it ourselves as Expedia couldn't apparently. Food and drink little on the expensive side, but that is Dubai for you. Had a problem with first room, left feedback and with 30 mins reception contacted us to offer a room change. Only reason I would give for maybe not staying gain was we prefer to be closer to the city. Read less
