If you choose to stay on the palm island and want an intimate atmosphere. meaning not surrounded by Dubain construction, then Waldorf is the place to be. A true delight. I recommend this location for families and couples alike. Only down fall is that it takes a good 25-30 minutes to get off the island.

Have just returned from a week at the Waldorf to celebrate my husbands ‘Big’ birthday and What a fab week we have had!!! As ever the rooms, the reception area and the pool and beach are perfect all Spotlessly clean. We have stayed at other 5 star hotels in Dubai including the Westin the Royal Meridian and a few of the Jumeirah resorts but keep getting pulled back to the Waldorf - this was our 6th visit. This is down to one thing - the personal service you receive from amazing staff. If you are debating whether it is worth upgrading to a Pearl room just do it - worth every penny!!! Apart from the free cocktails etc the staff up there are outstanding. They all know your name - nothing is too much trouble it is a very personal service and not something I have experienced in any of the other 5 star establishments I mentioned. Special mention to Emma in the lounge she is exceptional. By the end of your holiday you will feel like you’ve made a new friend - so warm, helpful and thoughtful. She organised to decorate the lounge on my husbands birthday and I found out later had given up her day off to be there !! That’s dedication for you. Cannot speak highly enough of her and the rest of the staff they are brilliant. Special mention also to the housekeeping team particularly ‘Monan’ (sorry if spelt wrong) who decorated the bed with balloons and petals on the big day!! The little touches really do make for a special experience. Needless to say we will return and look forward to experiencing the Waldorf hospitality again soon. Thank you everybody Read less
