RIXOS THE PALM | DUBAI | UAE

REVIEWED ON 8 FEBRUARY 2018

"Top class all round with service to match"

*****

Rixos looks unremarkable from the outside but inside we found every quality you dream of on an AI holiday. The young lady on reception warmly welcomed us with an upgrade and 24hours later spotted me in the reception and came over to ask if things were to my satisfaction. Yes indeed. Mr Javed was a star, nothing too much trouble.

We ate in the steak house where manager Jesus delivered our culinary delights in his own superb way. Food was brilliant. It was a bit noisy from the band but no real issue. We went the Italian twice and again no complaints, good service and top class food. The all day buffet covered all bases, the variety was amazing at all times.

Our room was fabulous, and the unexpected view from our fourth floor balcony sunbeds was priceless. On day one we reported the tv wasn't working - I wanted to watch football at night- and on the fourth it still wasn't ! I made calls but was wasting my breath, and as you know it is the little things that let you down.

Pool area was just so... right temperature, plenty of sunbeds and if you needed one moving no problem, staff would sort it. Food in the sea view restaurant was class, specially the fish, though service could be a little slow. Staff were outstanding throughout, and I have nothing but praise for them.

We had just left a cruise ship to spend some time here, we wished we had stayed here for the whole11 nights. Would I return? Without any doubt. Great place.
