Unfortunately our stay at the Fairmont wasn’t as good as expected:

- Staff are very polite and friendly
- ‘Fairmont View’ Rooms have a fabulous view of the Mosque
- Sushi restaurant at the hotel was delicious

- The first room we were allocated had a very unpleasant

Fantastic 3rd visit. Love the Gold package. Done this twice and the all inclusive package once. Prefer the gold one love the 7th floor. Nice to see seating outside too for a drink in the evening. Definitely improvements made since our last visit 4 months ago. It’s as if they are

Planning to book this hotel travelling with my 5 month year old baby..would you recommend? Does the hotel provide good facilities for babies? Eg, cot, steriliser etc
Not sure what it provides for babies.( We also stayed at St Regis at Corniche and know that they provide everything for babies and offer service second to none throughout your stay.

Could I have an email address for someone at the Fairmont Hotel please. I have some questions related to my stay in late November. We are staying in a gold room, so would appreciate it if someone could let me know how to contact the hotel direct. Thank you. Julie Ellison

We’re staying mid December on half board and would appreciate clarification on a few points, please. Firstly, how much is the allowance per day towards dining in the a la Carte restaurants and are all restaurants included? Secondly, can it used for MPW’s Great Steakout and Friday Brunch? Lastly, is there a supplement for the Seafood Night at CuiScene? Thank you
Just back! Buffet is lovely in CuiScene and seafood night is just another night so no charge extra. The lobster was yummy. We had half board included too. It is either lunch or dinner on offer. If you go al a carte, you have 180d (£36 approx) credit per adult, 90d per child. This paid for three pizzas and garlic bread for 2 adults and a child in the Italian but if we had more expensive pasta options in there we would have had to pay extra. All restaurants (incl steakhouse) were included with the same credit however you would be paying a lot extra st the steakhouse on top. Friday brunch - we didn’t do it but you are given a flyer about it. You can pay an extra 125d or something and use your half board for lunch that day - cannot remember exact amount to have the basic soft drink package. The alcohol packages were really pricey and we’d rather sit in the sun! The brunch package was in the main buffet, Italian and steak house restaurants. Food is really nice in the buffet but bit samey after 6 nights!! Enjoy!

Dining mainly in CuiScene - can men wear tailored/smart shorts in the evening please? Many thanks 😊
Most definitely it is very relaxed, and smart casual is the order of the day. Most men wear tailored shorts, jeans or very casual trousers. Enjoy.

We're a family of four and are staying at this hotel for a few days at the end of this month. Does anyone know if there is free water available around the pool and beach areas? I've never stayed at a Fairmont before so I'm unsure about how generous they are with their guests. We stayed at The Ritz Carlton in Dubai in May and many items were complimentary like water, ice lollies, popcorn and fruit. TIA
Yes water with lots of fruit and ice at the small bar on the beach. Lovely hotel, beach area and great pools one is good for early morning fast swimming as it long and empty at that time.
