INSIDE SCOOP EMMA SAYS The chips are seriously good and generous portions. The bar at the Arabian Court comes alive in the evening and is a lovely setting to enjoy to some drinks when the kids are tucked up in bed. scoop image

  • MF 18 June 2014 "We had the most fantastic holiday. Can you please pass on your thanks to your Dubai expert as the split of the holiday between both hotels was just perfect and absolutely enhanced our whole holiday. The only thing was the temperature but we were aware it was getting warmer at that time of year so as much as I could see us going there again it would be at a different time of year. I would go back to the same hotels again in a heart beat too! Emirates were first class also, and accommodated our son fantastically. I would score this holiday as a 5 out of 5, but with a temperature warning for this time of year. We were just sensible about it and the Atlantis in particular had a wealth of indoor activities available to us.

    Thanks again, and we are always recommending you!"

  • SR 04 November 2013 "Another fantastic holiday at the Royal Mirage in Dubai.  Everything went really well.  Once again the Kids Club there did a great job and we were very happy with the room on a higher floor.  5 out of 5 ! 
    Even the spa voucher worked this time !  The trick is to tell Maria the spa manager and to tell the Reception on the same day so they can both email each other about it.  Thank you very much for that as I enjoyed a lovely facial.
    We will be booking again for October next year.  Once I get the holiday dates I'll be in touch.
    I have also  recommended you to two families"

  • SR 08 February 2012 "We are delighted with our stay at the Royal Mirage, Arabian Court. The hotel continues to be impressive on every level; food, service, our room, the grounds, the spa all first class. We were very impressed with the Kids Club and often had difficulty getting our 6 year old daugther out of the club to spend time with us! The staff were friendly and attentive, and the range of activities for her was great. Indeed it seemed that activities for all age groups were well catered for both on and off the beach. She particularly enjoyed the kids only evening dinners and discos, and the camel & pony riding. Whilst chatting to other parents, we noticed that many were 'repeat customers' at the hotel and we can understand why.

    Please pass on our thanks to the Royal Mirage, we shall definitely be returning when we next visit Dubai.

    Thanks again to you Helen for getting this deal for us, we especially appreciated the upgrade to half board."
