Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The best time to visit the UAE is between October and November and then February and March, when temperatures hang around the mid-20s and the humidity is under control. While December and January are generally considered the best months to go, the weather over the last couple of ‘winters’ has been unpredictable with occasional cloud and rain.

The month of Ramadan means hotel rates are heavily discounted, but while outside the resort, Ramadan is strictly adhered to, within the resorts you will notice very little difference.

High summer (July and August) means heavy discounted hotels it’s a great option for a cheap getaway but it will be very very hot and very very humid!

Sofitel Dubai The Palm sits on a large stretch of beach and is a perfect choice for families thanks to its extensive facilities, including a kids pool with a water slide and a large kids club with an array of fun activities. The club is complimentary for children aged 4 years plus (under 4 are also welcome with parental supervision or a babysitter which can be arranged through the hotel).

Katie May (Staff)

I think the Sofitel is perfect for families. They have great value apartments offering convenient and spacious accommodation, and one of the best children's clubs I have seen in Dubai. With such great facilities, even outside of school vacations the Sofitel was busy with lots of families, so whilst it is still a great option for adults after a good value getaway, you would need to be happy to have plenty of children around!

There is a Polynesian feel to this hotel, emphasised by the plant walls lining the ground floor public area. It is a great value family hotel - although not dripping with luxury, the two bedroom apartments work particularly well and offer lots of space. I was also very impressed with the kid's club - lots of activities and a lovely pool area for them.

Clare Monro (Staff)

I was really impressed by Sofitel The Palm. It has a very unique feel to it with lots of pools (16 altogether!), little waterways and bridges and lots of flowers and foliage. There are kids pools with water slides attached to the kids club, making it really good fun for families. The two bedroom apartments also offer excellent value for money while giving you lots of space.

I was very surprised by the Sofitel as in past experience I haven't found their properties particularly engaging. However Sofitel Dubai The Palm really stands out as a fantastic option for a beach break. Being located on the Palm it has an excellent beach providing you can get over the fact its been dredged up in a non too natural way. To top this off I am quite sure there wasn't one crane or piece of construction equipment visible anywhere on the horizon from the main beach.

Dining is excellent, particularly in the seafood restaurant Moana, the sushi and ceviche being perfect for light lunches on their terrace.

I would definitely recommend the hotel for couples providing they opt for a room in the main building but it is for families that the hotel really shines.

Adjacent to the main building and pool is a separate set of two blocks each full of fantastic family apartments ranging from 1 to 3 beds all centerd around a children's pool, kids club and large play area. There are also a couple of casual restaurants right there for ease of access that also sell a few bits and pieces for the well maintained kitchenettes.

There are plenty of activities laid on for families and the next jetty down from the hotel's own provides a full blown water sports and diving center although it is only allowed in the bay and not directly around the Palm so happens a little off-site.

The Sofitel seemed to offer something a little different from the rest of Dubai and that really appealed to me. Add to this their reasonable rates and it is an excellent hotel in every way.

Sofitel The Palm is a brilliant option for families looking to stay on the iconic Jumeirah Palm. The 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments are good value and are perfectly set up for those with younger children or larger families, as all apartments come with a separate living room and fully equipped kitchen. You are in a good location to explore the Palm, visit the nearby Aqauventure water park and also only 30 minutes away from downtown Dubai. There is a kids club, 13 restaurants and bars to choose from, kids pool and water sports amongst the host of other activities on offer.
