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.

We had a wonderful time here. Elena at Olivier’s was outstanding. She and her team took really care of us while doing business in the hotel and while vacation hours. Rooms were super clean and the housekeeping team acted very flexible to not disturb call time within home office hours. Enjoyed the morning walks along the palm. Hotel management around Mr Ramsey was a pleasure to work with and Carl at the front desk is our absolute hero. We are super happy and satisfied. Our expectations were fully met and yes we did our homework before and knew about the location, the family friendly atmosphere and the restrictions in place. We will for sure come back and do business & vexation here. Read less

It is sad to leave sofitel with the wonderful team Yashirah, Samanta and rookman. They assisted well. Yashirah offered us a courtesy room for shower as well. We were staying late and had dinner before leaving Room view is amazing. All the best guys. See you next year. Will definitely come back. Room 2169 Monsieur Dumont

Let’s start again to travel! For a first of a kind you can find something better. Located on a crescent of The Palm, the hotel is pretty far away from everything in Dubai, but from the beach the view is nice. Ok the hôtel is not bad : premises and gardens are nice, rooms not to bad. Staff does his best but is sometimes overwhelmed (looks like the headcount is not there). As much as the y can make your stay confortable they do so: with have been upgraded for most of our stay. We occupied two differents rooms and clearly you have to be lucky on the draft as you can se on the pictures views from rooms could be great or ugly. The real bad point is the quality of food and beverages. It is quiet poor for a french hôtel in which you pay your room 400 to 600€ per night. Moreover restaurants are overcrowded with families during peak hours. So ta kind into account location , price and food quality you can find better deals in Dubai. Read less
