A very nice hotel on Jumeirah Beach with views of Palm Jumeriah. Make sure you book a sea facing room as there is much construction all around [as everywhere in Dubai] with noise 24hrs a day*. Anywhere else in the world it would be a good 4* property, but being in Dubai it cannot compare with the many superb 5*+ hotels. However, it is good value, clean, good pools, lovely beach, large rooms and has everything you could want [except wireless internet access]. Salon prices are very cheap.
A number of restaurants to choose from. We took the half board option which enables you to have either lunch or dinner in the hotel, by means of vouchers, and eat elsewhere if wished for the other meal. Dining in the buffet is very good, and there is a different theme from around the world each night. Food is plenty, good quality, and a very wide variety of all dishes to suit most tastes.
