Another great family holiday. Everything from the food to the facilities and the staff were excellent. We especially loved the Wavehouse and En Fuego, both were great fun! And as always the water park was awesome. Thank you also to Gayan and the housekeeping team for looking after us.

Despite being a wonderful hotel with amazing staff, White Beach continues to ruin stays here. The hotel clearly does not understand its clientele and must believe it thinks it’s a top Ibiza club hotel.

Despite being a wonderful hotel with amazing staff, White Beach continues to ruin stays here. The hotel clearly does not understand its clientele and must believe it thinks it’s a top Ibiza club hotel. The music blares out throughout the day around the White Beack area and the adjoining Family Pool….yes, family pool. You can pay extra……a lot extra….to get Imperial Club access, which comes with its own private beach. Peace and quiet, luxury you think, alas no, it adjoins White Beach, so you are blasted with club music all afternoon whilst trying to enjoy the surroundings. The ridiculous thing is there is always hardly anyone there at White Beach!! You will see numerous references to this issue throughout the reviews with the hotel promising to deal with it. Hollow promises, they lie. So if you want a relaxing holiday, GO ELSEWHERE. A shame because everything else is amazing Read less

From a seemless checkin to a speedy and trouble free checkout this hotel was just perfect for a short 4 night break. I can't wait to come back for longer and myself and my wife only talked about this all the way back to the UK! The place is spotless and its a huge place to keep that way and I can't begin to think about the work that goes into it. The main buffet where they serve breakfast is well worth just paying to go in and try if you're passing, its awesome. The restaurants choice is massive and we dined in Nobu which was perfect and their business lunch set menu at around £35 is an absolute steal for value. The view from Nobu on the 21 floor across the Palm and out to the open sea must be one of the best in Dubai. Of course they hope you then spend on wine etc but that's up to you. The aquapark...I don't have to time to tell you about just how good it is...just go there and enjoy! Read less

Wow! Just the most incredible experience we’ve ever had. From the moment we got out of the taxi we were treated 5 stars. Always being welcomed back, the staff were absolutely incredible and friendly, the whole place smelt amazing and was super clean! We stayed for my birthday and we were treated to 2 chocolate cakes on our room, a happy birthday flower bed display and towel animals. Massive shoutout to narendra, mt-bablo and Hendrick. Hopefully I have their names correct. Our room was made up during the day, even putting little cable tidies round our chargers and then made up for nighttime aswell where they’d put slippers out, fresh water and a glass next to the bed, put the lamps on and close the curtains. A really great selection on shops and restaurants on site. We ate at gordon Ramseys pizza street and the Wavehouse which were both great. We did the dolphin experience which was so incredible and would highly recommend. We also did the Waterpark which we enjoyed but definitely invest in some water shoes/socks. The ground gets super hot. There was one ride my partner went on which he did struggle getting back up which the lifeguard had to go in. He seemed a little annoyed about it which was a little disappointing as my partner is a strong swimmer but it was a very high ride into very deep water so that scared us a little. Ubers seemed to work out more expensive than taxis so we stuck to taxis. The cream ones with coloured roofs! We also visited motiongate, the Dubai frame, the water fountain show and burg khalifa light show, mall of emirates, Dubai mall and we did the city sightseeing bus (warning soooo hot but a good way of seeing more of the city). We visited over May 19-25th. The humidity was crazy and the heat was very sticky. Next time we will come a little earlier in the year but just a little warning. Overall an amazing time away and we can’t wait to come back! Read less

We had such a great time, the imperial club was such a great deal, the food, access to parks and all other perks make it worth it, but also because the staff at the imperial lounge was amazing. Special shout out to Sunil who took such great care of us whilst we were there.
