Dubai - Atlantis the palm

Hi all - finally booked next years holiday. The usual ai in the med was just not going to cut it after going to America. We've done that so many times and whilst I do still enjoy it wanted something a bit different. Looked at Mexico / San Fran and tbh I knew nothing about Dubai three days ago and saw a deal with a local travel agent. Price was still too high so went onto emirates holidays and got the same deal... upgraded club room / free airport private transfers at the Atlantis palm Dubai for 900 cheaper than the basic room and no transfers with the travel agent ! The dibb taught me well ! Ten nights with emirates - half board plus club room so afternoon tea, unlimited soft drinks and snacks all day, free cocktails 5-7 ... super excited as it looks great for the kids which is the most important thing. Fab waterpark and aquarium onsite. Can't believe having now looked at Dubai what's actually on offer for kids. I think they'll love it - yeah I know it'll be hot but we'll manage that part - any tips do let me know - thanks in advance !

The beach and sea look fab. It will be hot but probably not as humid as Florida and there will be a sea breeze. Time for a siesta and use a high SPF !

We took our kids May half-term and they absolutely loved it. We didn't stay at the Atlantis but did go to the water park for the day. Our kids loved the kids club in the hotel we stayed in so get ready to relax!
We used Uber to get around but the official marked cabs were very reasonable and a similar price.
We also enjoyed The Cheesecake Factory very much - it was exactly the same as the Mall at Millenia!
Some snack/drink things, particularly in the hotels, seemed very expensive so I would have made more use of my generous luggage allowance and taken more drinks/kid snacks. We had a Club level room like you but ours was more bar service for drinks and it would have been nice to have some more things for the actual room.
Emirates flights are amazing!

I've been a number of times now... if staying at Atlantis, upgrading to the club rooms very very worth it. I went in August this year and although more than 40 everyday it was totally bareable.

You will love it! Its the most amazing hotel ever!
Its huge but doesn't feel busy somehow.
We went in Aug 2 yrs ago and i couldn't sit in the sun but was quite happy under an umbrella and dipping in the pool.
The club level is great as you get a dedicated breakfast room which is much less chaotic than the std one.
The cocktail hour is great as you can order a few at the end to keep you going!

Hi, I've stayed at Atlantis a few time and I'm sure you will love it. Aquaventure the water park is fab. You can also do a dolphin swim but it is expensive. Did you book imperial club room?
What month are you going? Summer months - July and August are really hot and temps are mid to late 40's so be prepared if you are going then
