They didnt do club rooms but they may change that in the future maybe as it seemed they were still trying various ideas out.
Breakfast was in HK and it was buffet , but then on Sunday they changed it to A La Carte service instead and then came round afterwards to see which we preferred etc... so it seemed like they are trying things out as they go.

On Saturday evening when we went out someone bought my handbag its very own table lol... I have never had this before (Im clearly not posh enough to have this in my everyday life 😂 lol). It did make me think Ive got to treat myself to a new evening bag worthy of its own table
Heidi can you remember how many restaurants were open and were they all covered by half board? Friend has found a really good deal and she is thinking about CP

Sorry slow replying we flew through the night last night back from Florida... Im worn out lol🤪.
My memories always rubbish but from what I remember there were 4 restaurants (2 restaurants at each hotel) that you could use under half board -but they were a set menu. There was also the buffet but I didnt like that set up for evening. They were trying different ideas out while we were there though so best for your friend to check its the same. (Whilst we were there they did buffet breakfast but also tried out a server experience the one morning and then wanted to know which we preferred).

I really liked the st germain cocktails from the Neptune bar lay by the pool... just press the buzzer and they appear 😉. Your friend may like these I think lol.

I felt the place could do with being busier... but we may have just caught it on a quiet weekend. I would go again x
One of the guys gave me his card and said please contact me if you come back ... Ill have a look when I get in later and see if I can find his email if you like... your friend could email them for up to date info👍 X

Just wondered if anyone who is due to travel in the near future is considering cancelling because of the current situation in Iran? Were not due to go to Dubai until the end of May but not quite sure what to do now 🙁 Weve booked through Emirates holidays so might give them a call to find out the cancellation fees.

Yip booked Atlantis the palm in July for ten nights - its amazing now feeling gutted - I dont know what to do : uae is one of trumps allies from what Ive read. Im just not feeling hopeful. I lose deposit of 400 if I cancel ( unless the home office tell you not to go then youd be covered ). 30th April
I have 5000 to pay them . I just dont feel happy now

Id sit it out for now and see how it pans out. Check your t&cs first of course.
For reasons I wont post on here I think Dubai will be low on the list
