Amazing place. Can’t do enough for you. Never a 4star all day a 5star. Shout out to all the amazing staff but especially MAKBUL the chef at breakfast.

Amazing place. Can’t do enough for you. Never a 4star all day a 5star. Shout out to all the amazing staff but especially MAKBUL the chef at breakfast. I requested pancakes and he asked what my kids like and within 5 minutes he bough over 2 Minnie Mouse shaped pancakes for my girls and a Spider-Man shaped one for my boy If you’re into rides and theme parks this place ticks all the boxes, rides for all ages at the connected theme parks, I call it mini universal The river land is so cool, loads of restaurants and so much to do for kids, if you have 2 days only and 2 parks I’d recommend motiongste and legoland as the new Real Madrid park is a little disappointing with only 2 proper rides, the rest is themed around Real Madrid which is obvious but if you miss it I promise you won’t be overly disappointed, however if you have extra time and days of course do it. It motiongste is by far the best park and you need pretty much a full day. We travelled late may and for anyone wondering what it’s like with the heat, I can tell you we were walking the outdoors of motiongate studios in the middle of the day recorded at 41 degrees and honestly it was super bearable, my kids ages 3/6/8 had no issues with it either. This place is never that busy and we walked on and off everything in minutes. The pool is great, a cool lazy river, a kids splash pool and a large pool for all. The rooms are stunning and I’m fussy when it comes to rooms, a true Polynesian feel and styling is top notch. Dark woods and bamboo everyhwere The reception bar serves up some great ice cream which is now free for kids, and great drinks, shout out to BEA, she rocks that bar. The kids club is fantastic. Henna painting and face painting, PlayStation, tv, and Tara really gets involved, we witnessed her playing uno with 7 kids. The gym (admittedly I didn’t use) looked decent. The buffet is fantastic, so much option and if there’s anything you need just grab a staff member, they genuinely cannot do enough The Asian restaurant is fantastic, situated just behind reception, highly recommend it for a dinner meal. I want to shout out to George @ Bush Hill Travel who had it not been for him I would have never heard of this place but what a serious secret little hidden gem this place is overall, not only being a stunning hotel but having free access to the connected theme parks simply makes it a fantastic overall holiday. We have done it as part of twin centre and are moving over to JA palm tree court today for a more beach and chill type holiday but Lapita can most definitely be a one stop place that you stay for any length of time. It’s not quite Dubai being almost an hour out but so what, if you’re that bothered about Dubai then 2 centre this place with a more central Dubai hotel. George is an independent travel agent who books all my holidays but because he doesn’t advertise he relies purely on word of mouth so here I am asking anyone reading this to consider him for your trip to this place or even anywhere as he covers all luxury destinations, he can be reached on 02083506018, mobile 07958594154 and email george@bushhilltravel.co.uk, do not hesitate to contact him for top class service at reasonable prices. (But please don’t waste his time, he’s not paid just to quote you) Hope you enjoy your stay at Lapita. We will be back Read less

We are currently staying in this hotel and so far we cannot fault anything. All the staff are very friendly and professional at making us feel welcomed and looked after, from the reception and restaurant to the pool and parks all cannot do enough for you. The chefs Sanjeev and Rakeesh are so keen to go out of their way to make you anything you want from fresh. Everything from the hotel to the parks are kept clean and well presented. Our room which is 9201 is a great location in the heart of the hotel. Even whilst waiting to get a shuttle bus to Dubai mall ( which is a free service) a lovely lady from the coffee counter in reception come over, she chatted away to us then went and made us a drink to take away with us. We would happily come back to stay here again. Read less

I chose this hotel because of the complimentary access to the parks, as I was travelling with my 7 year old son. The hotel far exceeded my expectations. Amazing facilities, which included a lazy river and a splash area. Other benefits included the 2 hours free kids club and drinks vouchers. We stayed on a half board basis and the food was fabulous. We ate at the Kalea buffet restaurant each morning and evening, and there was always something new to try. I was impressed with the vegetarian selection, and pleased that every item was clearly labelled. The staff at Kalea were all amazing, special thanks to the supervisor, I think named Kranthi, who noticed that my son was not eating and arranged French fries to be made for him each breakfast. Thank you Kranthi! Also Deepa who served us was so lovely and friendly, Asmita who greeted us each morning and always remembered our names, and the lovely Siddhi, Anna, and Romina who made our stay so enjoyable. Sorry if I missed anyone out, but every staff member we came into contact with was amazing. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. I have already been pricing it up to return in October 😃 Highly recommend to families with children. Read less
