    Great Stay

    It was great and an enjoyable stay. Really had a great time walking around the area, seeing the horses and enjoying the green fields. The staff were great Baker and Modi to name a couple. Pity that we don't ride horses but next time we shall endeavour to ride.

  • 6.0.Good

    Unreasonably expensive.

    The only thing good about this place is the fact that its outside of the main city. Aside from that everything is the same as a normal basic hotel. Personally it wasnt worth the price i paid. I could have gotten better service for less.

    An oasis of peace, nature and luxury

    We stay regularly at Desert Palm because it is an oasis of peace and luxury away from the craziness of Dubai. The staff are amazing, the rooms are some of the best we ever stay in (always aim for the Polo Suites). Pool is lovely. If you want a quiet getaway just half an hour outside Dubai, this is the place.

    Christmas 2018

    We loved our 2 bedroom villa and the space was amazing for a family of 5 ( 3 adult children ) The villa has massive kitchens but is not kitted out with any utensils so you can’t use it , which is a massive shame if you are staying for a longer period We had booked a 2 night stay following 5 days at the Atlantis and we were looking forward to a relaxing time Unfortunately the villa are part of a residential complex and on our 2nd night stay the next door neighbors had a very loud all night party We did complain and were offers a late check out the following day but it did really spoil our stay We ate in the restaurant and the food was lovely , we ate Lobster and Black Cod and both were probably one of the best we have tasted My eldest is a vegan and chef was very accommodating as nothing really on the menu Breakfast was good with table service , but very slow which wouldn’t normally a problem but some of our party had to check out for a flight on the 2nd day and after waiting for over an hour left without eating ( they did send the food to the villa ) but again spoilt the experience Hotels.com state the hotel to 5 stars but the official rating is 4, I’m not sure I would have booked if known as very expensive for a 4 star hotel We didn’t get to see a polo game but would have loved to have seen one as the grounds were lovely
