Default Dubai mini break - al qasr/ madinat/ jumeirah

Looking for some top tips really.

We want to come over and have a brunch and take advantage of the low occupancy rates.

We would bring our maid with us (she finally arrives after 9 months!!), so that she can look after our napping toddler. Has anyone else done this? Would two rooms be the way to go or a suite?

Anyone got their hands on current promotional codes?

Which hotel would you choose?

Cheers.

we tend to look after our own toddler, hence the point in having her...

And we go to brunches quite a lot

im sure the maid will love to feel belittled sitting in a champagne brunch restaurant...or will she be confined to quarters

ps i AM only kidding and forget how fortunate we are to have family in Dubai.

al Qasr brunch is nice, dont know of any occupancy codes for deals..

go for a suite in al qasr...make sure you get a room with access to the exec club, there's a kids room in there which is really good, and you get free breakfast, drinks all day and cocktails/canapes in the evening...

we went there yesterday for lunch and did the Abra tour thing, really nice. The guy on the tour boats said that rooms were 3500 - 4500 a night this week but next week would be 1500 a night

Also look into Golden Sands hotel apartments in Bur Dubai. They strike very good deals from time to time. It's in the heart of downtown Dubai and very accessible.
