Hello! You’d better put the kettle on and make a cup of tea as this post is a bit of a long one.
You’re going to have to forgive me and bear with me on this one. I have developed a complete obsession with the resort hotel we stayed in during our last stay in Dubai, the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, and with the magnificent hotel it overlooks, the Burj Al Arab.
Here’s our two bedroom family suite.
the kids club
It’s not that I don’t want to have fun with my kids, just that travelling with them 24/7 means that time together can be too much of a good thing.
A little break from them, knowing they are very happy and well cared, is just delicious. And so it was during our recent stay at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai. My children insisted on going to the kid’s club every day.
The club executive
As we stayed in a suite, we had an unlimited access to the executive pool, afternoon treats and pre-dinner snacks and drinks in the lobby.
The Half board
I would definitely recommend the Half Board option, as the meals can be quite expensive. There are also lots of variety to choose from in the restaurants and you get 3 courses as part of your half board.
The breakfast buffet each morning was one of the most comprehensive we’ve seen with everything and anything you could possibly want at breakfast from eggs cooked to order, cereals, pastries and a full English to Asian, Indian and Arabic dishes.
THE WILD WADI WATER PARK
One of the absolute highlights was visiting the Wild Wadi Water Park.
This is one of several water parks in Dubai, and I think the best known. It is right alongside the Jumeirah Beach Hotel and is owned by the same group. Hotel residents can use the water park at any time and have their own private entrance. As you can imagine, we went a few times!
I was impressed by the number of life guards on duty. They were very much on the ball and I had great faith that my kids would be alright as they, at times, dashed here and there on their own.
A fantastic family holiday. Brilliant facilities and stunning rooms.
We’ll be back again very soon hopefully for another family holiday.
