My family and I stayed here for 3 nights and had the most amazing time. The room was very modern and spacious. The food here was really tasty with a wide variety of options especially for vegetarians. The theme parks were a walking distance away from the hotel and were fantastic entertainment for the kids. The swimming pools and lazy river were great to cool off in the hot weather and the kids club provided such brilliant facilities for the kids, with 3 hours free care every day. All of the staff were very friendly, helpful and did everything they could to make our trip special. I would definitely stay here again with my family and would highly recommend this hotel. Read less

We stayed in a family suite for 4 nights and whilst I agree with the below review a family suite should have more than a king size bed (we travelled with an 8 and 5 year old) as soon as I called to housekeeping 2 beds were delivered to the room at no extra cost.

We stayed in a family suite for 4 nights and whilst I agree with the below review a family suite should have more than a king size bed (we travelled with an 8 and 5 year old) as soon as I called to housekeeping 2 beds were delivered to the room at no extra cost. The buffet for breakfast if you were staying in a suite was fantastic, the buffet in the main restaurant was a little crowded but what makes this hotel is its staff - they are amazing, After a long journey we were greeted by a very smiley Samuel who assisted us into the hotel and checked in efficiently by Blessing. The room was massive and well equipped. The hotel is immaculate and with soft drinks included in our half board package we were very pleased with the food. Paleev assisted us as did Stanley on the front desk with any questions and Tanka was always around to drive us to the parks (thanks for being so good with the kids), even when we were checking out the staff were still on top form with Daniel assisting me in getting a taxi. We have stayed in many different hotels in Dubai and this stay was the best. Cant wait to come back. Thanks for an amazing time. Read less

Booked a family suite as travelling with a 4 and 6 year old, checked in at 1am after long journey to find a family suite only had 1 king size bed. Rang and said would provide single bed, one arrived! Rang again to ask where other child was expected to sleep? Said “ we can send bedding to make up sofa ( wasn’t even a sofa bed) or send another bed for £30 per night” I replied that I had already paid for 2 children to sleep in this room, they had taken a booking for 4 but had prepared nothing. Eventually sent another bed but was by now 2am, parents will understand how this is not a great start at this time. Hotel is in a great location for parks ( empty) breakfast was poor, evening buffet was better than expected. Read less

Just returned from a nine night Easter break at Lapita for the second year running and again, had a great time. Everything was superb - the room quality is fantastic - great balcony overlooking the river - quiet and relaxing; it puts all European rooms to shame! We stayed on a half board basis. Food quality and choice at the buffet was always good but the icing on the cake was the Asian Restaurant, Hikina. We ate here on three nights at no extra cost and a la carte service. The food and service was exceptional - a special mention to Chengu and Jennifer, who waited on our table each night so charming and polite as were all the staff. We met restaurant manager Lily Chen who was a delight and welcomed us back each night - missing them already! The Restaurants and Bars Manager Amir also introduced himself to us and we spoke every night - impressed at how much pride he took in our positive comments for food quality and chef expertise - can still taste the umali Amir! We always had a pre dinner drink at the Ari pool bar - happy hour 6 until 7 - where Kenyan Josiah kept us well topped up - he was great as well as Maureen too! We travelled as a couple and were unsure if the hotel would be suitable for us as it is family orientated but found no problems - it was lovely to walk around the Riverland area at night when lit up and never too busy or crowded. We are already looking to book again next year as we enjoyed the visit so much again - looking forward to Easter 2020! Read less

We had 5 nights here to visit the theme parks. We didn’t have huge expectations but have been so pleased with the facilities, food and staff. We stayed half board and the variety and standard of food has been exceptional. I am allergic to gluten and this can be very stressful and limiting , Chef Wasim was fantastic. Each night he explained what I could eat and even made extra things just for me, his help was exceptional and very much appreciated. I would highly recommend this hotel, the theme parks are nextdoor and are fantastic, of an Orlando standard but with no queues! We will definitely be back ! Read less
