Fairmont the Palm Dubai - Palm Jumeirah


Dubai is a gorgeous holiday spot and so far it tops' my list of holiday destinations.
Just say #SunSeaSand plus chuck in a 5* Hotel and I'm there... Don't forget to include a top of the range Water park for my little trooper.... :)
I have sampled many 5* hotels in Dubai and what tends to set each hotel apart is mainly the service each hotel provides for its customers.

I recently visited Fairmont the Palm Dubai  and here's what I have to say about it. Hope you Enjoy:)

Fairmont is a beautiful hotel located on the Palm Jumeirah about 40 mins from Dubai International Airport.  The journey to the hotel didn't seem too long... Just soak in the views from the Airport to the Hotel :) .. there are many amazing views and once you get on the palm it gets even better..

Once we got to the hotel there was a door man waiting to get our luggage... which is always a nice touch; no one wants to carry heavy bags after hours of flying ..especially with a toddler... #LuvTheLittleMunchkinThough :):)

Once we got to the hotel we were directed to Check-in which didn't go as smoothly as expected; a lady at reception was a bit standoffish... WasntVeryFriendly dont recall her name...... I would have named&shamed Her ... lol
Safe to say from then onwards our stay went smoothly!
 

Beautiful Reception area


We stayed in a Fairmont View room and it was big enough for 2 Adults and a toddler. We booked 2 rooms as I travelled with family, My room didn't have any welcome treats :( but the 2nd room which was also a Fairmont view room had some welcome treats waiting by the bedside...:) yummy Macaroons

After we settled in, we went straight to the Pool area to get acquainted with the Sun.Sea.Sand
Towels and Water were immediately supplied 5 minutes after we sat down :) very nice touch... and they had plenty of life guards on tow by the pools watching out for kids.

My son especially loved the kids water play area ... Its always nice to have somewhere for kids to play other than the standard Indoor Kids club.... Access to the water splash area is free when kids are accompanied by Parents/Adults.

We also sampled dinner at the hotel one evening and the food was good. A Good spread was provided in the buffet dinner including some made to order specialties and live cooking stations. I have to say the deserts where to die for!

Tips for Fairmont the Palm:

- Taxi's to get to the hotel from the Airport cost us about 70AED about £12 for a 40 minute drive. (FYI - Taxis are very cheap in Dubai) and there are usually no Taxi queues... well at the Airport at least.... :)
- Be prepared for the 500AED hotel holding deposit per night so it doesn't come as a surprise, the money doesn't leave your credit card but its held and available again approx. 48hrs after checkout. - This is the norm in most hotels when you travel abroad.
- The Entertainer Travel Dubai book gives you 1 night free when a night of equal value is purchased.
See: https://www.theentertainerme.com/Travel/products/
- The Entertainer Dubai book gives you 1 meal free when 1 meal is purchased at most restaurants at Fairmont the palm. See: https://www.theentertainerme.com/Travel/products/ OR See: Ebay for vouchers. :)
- Flights to Dubai from London heathrow/ Stanstead or Gatwick from £260 upwards.... dependant on airline and peak/ off peak travel prices.
