Can anybody confirm the "Roach" comments regarding Dubai Palm Jumeirah hotels?

Jump to last reply

Pretty grim article in the NY Times about the crumbling economy of Dubai.

Was wondering if anybody out there can comment on the actual reputation of the hotels on Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.

The NY Times said that they have roaches coming out of the water faucets. "Lurid rumors"

Now, many expatriates here talk about Dubai as though it were a con game all along. Lurid rumors spread quickly: the Palm Jumeira, an artificial island that is one of this city’s trademark developments, is said to be sinking, and when you turn the faucets in the hotels built atop it, only cockroaches come out.
