If you would like to know what we think of taking children to Dubai its amazing if you like to stay by the pool lots goes on there if youre wondering which hotel is better for children Atlantis or Jumeirah beach def Jeremiah beach I have been to Atlantis the water park is very spaced out where as the wild wadi is exciting and very much more fun. The service it Atlantis is different you dont get a personal approach the hotels is to massive to notice everyone, hence Jumeriah is big but every ones noticed. As for the storys you hear about you cannot wear shorts or hold hands in Dubai is not true you can wear shorts to a shopping mall its just a woman wouldnt wear a top up over her belly and a man a vest simple out of respect for the country you wear shorts and a t shirt fine, and you can drink in your hotels its fine you do not have to cover up as people would think. Its an amazing island im so proud to have been giving the opportunity to visit it more than once.

Just returned from a week at JBH,what a great hotel.
We arrived at Heathrow at about 5am for check in,i had checked in online so we were through check in very quickly we flew on an 777-300er aircraft we left 40mins late but the flight only took 6hrs-5mins.
The service including the food and the ICE entertainment system was brilliant and very comfortable for economy.Flight back was on an older A320 aircraft into Gatwick and less comfortable also the service was only average, it left on time and took 7hrs both journeys were very smooth no dreaded Turbelance.
We went through in about 20mins at Dubai,and our cases were off
when we got to reclaim.
Hotel Check in:
The check in was very quick and our room was ready,they asked for my credit card and they put 3500 Dhrs on my account to cover all my bills.
Great room 3rd floor No 337 directly opposite the Burj great view at Night and in the morning,also a good view of Wild Wadi.The guy doing the cleaning was great and also left us water and chocs
all the time,we did not use the turndown service at night.The room and bathroom was a great size.
Resturants and Bars:
Lattitude; Great Buffet Breakfasts.
Dhow & Anchor: Nice friendly bar/staff and a good Pub Menu .
Go West: Great Food and menu, good for the Kids also live Music Duo who were quite good.
La Pirrala : Very dissapointed with this venue,granted we went on Sunday so no music,but the menu was very small.The Steak was very good but the Vegatables were not.Price for a bottle of Rose was around

The hotel is very impressive. All the rooms face the sea and are spacious and have everything you need. There really is no need to take robes, slippers, shampoo, conditioner etc as that is all provided.
We had two adjoining rooms and the children slept in comfortable additional beds. The pillows and bedding are an absolute dream - so comfortable.
We stayed as Premier Leisure guests, which means for a supplement of approx

As we arrived on a night flight we were greeted at the hotel by friendly staff who took us for a complimentary breakfast before being offered the chance to have a sleep in very comfortable beds in a private area of the hotel.
Our room was not ready for us at the time, so we were issued with a mobile phone so that reception could contact us when one was ready for us. We then could take advantage of the hotels facilities, such as the well equipped gym and lovely pool areas. Staff were eager to set up umbrellas and lay out towels for you and every hour ice cold towels, ice lollies and melon was brought round to cool you off.
When we did get our room at the correct checking-in time, it was a very spacious and luxurious room with a balcony overlooking the Burj Al Arab Hotel. Everything you needed was inside the room such as an excellent hairdryer, ironing board/iron and fresh fruit and water were layed out for you every day. The room was very clean and was serviced twice a day with an evening "turn -down" service with the usual chocolates left on the pillows, robes layed out on the bed etc, etc.
The location of the hotel was along the beach area so it was quite a way into the downtown area but taxis are quite cheap - roughly about

We arrived early morning, a stop over on our return from Australia. The reception staff could not do enough for us. As it was early we were shown to a room for complimentary breakfast and given a mobile phone on which they would contact us when our rooms were ready.
Our daughter felt unwell, and the staff made her very comfortable, providing pillows and blankets in the complimentary breakfast room so she could rest. We requested 2 rooms together, and hey presto we got exactly what we wanted, no problems.
The staff are very professional and welcoming, a smile for everyone. Nothing was to much trouble. We wanted to go to the Burj, but just missed the shuttle bus. The concierge asked us to wait inside until the next bus arrived, approx 20 minutes. After 10 minutes we were called to the entrance, and there was a large mercedes car to take us to the Burj, hows that for service.
All the restaurants are excellent, with entertainment to suit the theme of the restaurant. The rooms are so comfortable with views of the Gulf and the Burj.
As soon as we arrived back in the UK we immediately booked for next year, this time for 2 weeks, cannot wait to get back.
