Atlantis, The Palm

Crescent Rd., Palm Jumeirah, Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Fodor’s Expert Review

Nobody thought the Burj al Arab could be surpassed for their colorful take on five-star lavishness until Atlantis came along. The whimsical decor includes primary colors, sparkles, shine and texture, and plenty of wacky glass sculptures, including a 32-foot tall homage to pig tails in the lobby. Rooms are a little more understated, comfortable, and well-sized, especially for families. In fact, you're better off having kids with you when traveling here, because built into the price are entry to Aquaventure water park, the Lost Chambers aquarium, and Dubai's best kids' club. Beware though, this place is packed, all year round. Expect to wait for absolutely everything, all the time.

PROS

  • added extras for kids
  • family of four fit in a standard room (two queen-size beds)

CONS

  • busy, noisy, and at times, quite impersonal
  • some may find the decor over the top
  • waits for everything
