We broke up our holiday in Mauritius this January with a two day stay at Rixos The Palm, Dubai. The Hotel is very new and very well appointed. Staff were very helpful and efficient. The pleasant temperatures in Dubai made a nice contrast to what we had left behind in the UK. The beach and pool areas had enumerable beds and sun brollies and were clean and tidy. The staff around the pool were very helpful and the heated waters of the pool were lovely, though those of the Arabian Sea still a little on the chilly side. Breakfast could be a little chaotic and did not match the 5 star standard we had at the Shandrani in Mauritius but it was OK. Our room was probably the best we have stayed in for modernity and quality with a superb view of Dubai city across the water and a lovely balcony to enjoy it. The hotel is some distance from 'downtown Dubai' but the hotel does provide a free shuttle bus. Reception and other staff were very helpful. Most people staying at the hotel were Russian or from the Middle East.
I am glad I visited Dubai though it is not really our cup of tea but it is nice to have ticked the box and we enjoyed the lovely sunshine and excellent facilities of the Rixos.
