Atlantis The Palm

We have decided on Atlantis The Palm for our anniversary trip in September 😀

Can anyone advise if this is a good time to visit?
Is it best to book a package holiday or direct with the hotel?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thank You x

Think another poster is going to Atlantis in September too, Iíll see if I can find that thread. September is a great time but still very hot but definitely much cooler than summer. Loads of tips and advice on the big Dubai thread.
Package or direct varies. Get a quote or two from agents (emirates holidays are good as are Best of Dubai) and then call the hotel and see what can offer (be prepared to negotiate with the hotel!)
Try and book imperial club as itís definitely worth it IMO

Hi Colette-S
As youíve been to a few different hotels in Dubai can I ask if you would recommend the Atlantis? Or any other hotels? x

Hi been in July for ten nights and booked for this July for ten nights too. It really is the most amazing place we cannot wait to return but Iíll be honest. I have kept an eye on prices many times , different months etc ( I do this with Florida etc too lol ) - anyway Iíve never ever seen it cheaper direct with the hotel - ever ? I canít understand when people say they have (brill if they have doesnít get me wrong )
Itís always been cheapest with emirates holidays for me.
We always price imperial club with half board - not sure if thatís whatís made it difference but any time I price room direct itís the same price with emirates roughly including flights

Hi we were there last September and it was still very warm in the high 40s and very humid . The pool and the sea was actually like a Luke warm bath . I would also recommend the club rooms as you get a lounge to enjoy breakfast and afternoon tea in it instead of having to go to the big buffet restaurants. You also get 2 hours at night that you get free drinks and canapťs which going by the drink prices in the bars itís worth it . We booked a package deal with our local travel agents and the price was about the same if I booked it myself . If you decide too book the club lounge request a room on the East side of the hotel as the lounge is on that side .
