Wonderful hotel superbly run with incredibly helpful staff. We travel a lot but this was our first time at a One & Only hotel and will now be choosing it worldwide. We moved to the Palm from Dubai Jumeirah and we wanted a more relaxing and peaceful part of Dubai, Roshan in reservations assisted the move and was extremely accommodating, understanding and helpful. We were delighted by the absolutely fantastic accommodation, stunning pool, gazebos on the beach and wonderful food at the restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Absolutely amazing breakfast where nothing was too much trouble - matcha pancakes were heaven. Our butlers Ian and JB could not have done more to assist booking restaurants and helping with lost property onboard the inbound aircraft. All the staff from pool and beach, check in, housekeeping and restaurant were friendly, courteous and helpful. Covid measures were taken seriously and in place. Well done One & Only Palm especially at such a difficult time you are a credit to the Group - we would love to return! Read less

Gorgeous hotel, but we were extremely dissappointed in the service and quality at the pool of One & Only The Palm. What kind of a 5 star builds Marble floors near the pool? I nearly broke my neck slipping near the pool. I had to run after staff the whole day just to get some service. We were not allowed to eat at the pool which is unheard of,… Read more
Gorgeous hotel, but we were extremely dissappointed in the service and quality at the pool of One & Only The Palm. What kind of a 5 star builds Marble floors near the pool? I nearly broke my neck slipping near the pool. I had to run after staff the whole day just to get some service. We were not allowed to eat at the pool which is unheard of, this meant we had to walk over to the restaurant to eat and that took time away from our pool day. Food was extremely disappointing, friend's said all their dishes tasted fishy, even the burger. Big shame cause its a beautiful hotel. Definitely not going back. Read less
