Just got back from 5 nights in this hotel.
The hotel is about 40mins drive from Dubai airport, it cost about £40 one way in a taxi.
We arrived at 3am; the front desk said I needed to pay for a room, even though I had paid for the room through lastminute.com. This confusion lasted about 20minutes, and then they said they had the paperwork, and showed us to the room. But you don’t need this after a long flight at 3am!!
The next day we got the free shuttle bus to the beach, the driver asked us what time he should pick us up, we said 3pm, he arrived at 4.45!!
The swimming pool is nice, but most of the time it’s in the shade.
The rooms are clean, however one day our room was not cleaned even though we had left the "clean our room" sign on the door.
The food in the hotel is very nice and of a reasonable price, probably the best thing about the hotel!
Overall I would probably not stay here again.
