This Sofitel is relatively new, we know - we watched it being built down the road from our home. We were excited to try it out and it is as impressive as it looks on the outside. It is stands out from other hotels in Dubai with its individual French Polynesian style. The staff are wonderfully welcoming and always have smiles. And the layout of the hotel is fantastic for everyone, from a family with children, to a couple wanting privacy, to groups travelling together; the hotel rooms and villas are set out in clusters giving you the amount of privacy or exposure that you require as a holiday maker...we really liked that about the hotel!
Our only complaint would be the condition of the rooms for such a new hotel. We understand this has more to do with the treatment by other hotel patrons than the standard of the hotel - it is easy to see, people do not care or respect property when it is not their own. Nevertheless, it was a little disappointing that the upholstery items such as sofas and seat cushions were stained and dirty.
Overall though, a very nice experience.

We went to Dubai for the DP World Golf Championship staying at the Sofitel for 8 nights. I highly recommend this hotel for the location and only 20 minutes taxi ride from the airport costing about 60 AED.
The room was to a very high standard which a huge double bed.
We were room only but did sample the food which was very good.
The Infinity Pool was lovely and warm and stayed open in the evenings after dark with a pool side bar. The staff there look after you very well with towels and drinks.
The only downside to our trip was the boiler broke down for 24 hours and we had no hot water in the room but we put up with it as they were so pleasant and helpful keeping us informed. We hope to go back at some point.
The only downside to Dubai is you cannot get alcoholic drinks in restaurants when a glass of wine would be nice.

From the minute we entered the hotel we were treated very well, every single one of our needs was met. We stayed in the suite and it was lovely clean and spacious. We never had to lift a finger even on the beach or by the pool. The spa was amazing too, overall a relaxing and VIP feel to the whole holiday.
