I got sick from food poisoning before getting to the hotel. I told them when I got there I was sick. They did EVERYTHING for me. The treatment was better than at a hospital. I cannot speak highly enough about the staff. Nadia, Younus, Mani, Awais, Mehboob. And every other staff member. All gems!!!

Classes this as dads christmas dinner since he will be spending christmas here alone. Alex was out for dinner with some of his mates, didnt realise he had others! Went in past pier 7 where he was to say bye. Dubai is full of goodbyes for me, i know to many peope here now. Dad decided we would go home in style and took a taxi instead of the ...
... then off to the pool to work off those calories, stopping off for a quick game of ping-pong on the way. I say “game”! I really just mean a game to see how long we could keep the ball batting backwards and forwards. It was then into the lovely cool pool before a quick catch up with Aladdin who was going to drop in and pick up his suitcase of wonders!
As Aladdin was off flying his carpet around for most of ...
