For Children

What’s nearby? This hotel is on Jumeirah Beach, 20 minutes' drive from the city centre. The Mall is just over the road and the hotel runs a shuttle bus to some of the local shopping malls if you fancy more in the way of retail therapy. You can walk to the Madinat Jumeirah from here in about 10 minutes.

Tried and tested For a special meal, head to La Parrilla. This Latin American restaurant is up on the 25th floor so it has widescreen views, and the menu of Argentinian, Peruvian and Mexican dishes is served up alongside fiery tango dancing.

The sleeping arrangements All rooms benefit from ocean views. Ocean Deluxe Family Rooms sleep two adults in a king-sized bed and two children on a sofa bed, and these are available as interconnecting. We love the Family Garden Suites – they’re on the ground floor and have direct pool access, and they sleep up to three adults and two children. And the Two Bedroom Beit Al Bahar Royal Villa is extraordinary – it sleeps up to four adults and two children, has a private terrace and plunge pool, and the bonus of 24-hour butler service.
