Upon arrival I was NOT given the room in the picture and given the smaller ones which I specifically was trying to avoid. When I inquired, I was informed that the rooms were all the same and that no others were available. Won't be staying here again.

A fabulous beach directly in front of the development is a couple of minutes walk away and proximity to the Dubai tram is a real bonus if you want to explore Dubai. The property is spacious and well equipment, having all we needed for a self-catered holiday. The cleanliness could not be faulted. Mr Rosario was extremely helpful and on hand to answer any queries. As others have commented the stunning feature of this property is the terrace, with spectacular vies over the Palm. We could not see any apartment with better views in the whole of the complex. The complex itself has everything needed including pools, a gym and an excellent supermarket. There was even a Waitrose within walking distance. We would have no hesitation in renting this apartment again.
