This was our 3rd visit to Waldorf on the Palm in 3 years, so fair to say this review may be slightly biased. From the moment we checked in, we were greeted by a manager, Henry, who did not introduce himself as a manager. Instead he helped with our luggage and was just all in all very pleasant. When we entered our room we had a pleasant surprise with a lovely birthday cake for my daughter. The room was immaculate. Throughout the stay, housekeeping were 10/10 not leaving any stone unturned (a particular shoutout to Abdul who wrote a lovely note at the end of our stay, sorry for the mess Abdul, that’s what happens when you have two kids!) The concierge was fantastic, with Ahuke and Rajid really going that extra mile with recommendations for things to do and restaurants, all of which were fantastic. The kids club staff, pushpa, Paul and Emma (i think) were absolutely great. They took care of our 4 year old toddler so well that she would have to be dragged out every time. So many activities for the kids but more importantly a great atmosphere. The club lounge is so luxurious and has breathtaking views. The food and drink is great. The staff inc Emma and the team were so accommodating and so nice and sociable. They take so much pride in their job and the presentation of the lounge. Just superb. The buffet staff were once again so friendly and treated us like family. Especially Rahul, Hannet, Suraj, the ladies at the front desk and many that I can’t remember the names off. I run a company with 40 people. So I know how hard it can be to get good staff and to create a great experience for the customers each time. This hotel has got it spot on. Another very impressive point to note is that most of the same staff have been working here for the last 3 years so once again showing a great culture instilled by management and they enjoy working there. I want to go back! Can’t wait for my next stay.! Read less

Have just returned from a weeks stay at this wonderful hotel! From the moment we arrived to the time we left the hotel staff could not have done more for us! This hotel was just an amazing experience with great views either over the palm or out towards the Burj Al Arab. We were lucky enough to use the pearl lounge during our visit and a special mention to Mark, Eve and Clio who were just brilliant throughout our stay. As we were travelling with our 1 year old son, they would always look out for him, and make sure he got his breakfast that he wanted :-) The concierge at this hotel is also very good, very knowledgeable and very helpful in enabling us to do what we wanted to whilst visiting Dubai. Cant wait for our next trip to this hotel in the not too distant future!! Read less
