We had a fantastic time and a deal at The Grand Hyatt. Their club lounge deal is fabulous value bearing in mind how expensive Dubai alcohol and food are. Their club lounge provides an extensive breakfast and 6 -8 cocktail drinks in the evening coupled with an amazing Canapé and varied buffet each evening- so you basically get half board. The staff is amazing too. I suspect the Hyatt Regency is the same. We like it as it’s 10 mins away from the airport. But near all the sights .”
