I had a look online on this subject and it seems it's mentioned frequently it's frowned upon between unmarried couples to hold hands. Begs the question if you would still feel the say way if the guy revealed he was gay and in a same sex partnership. Would you still say you can do what you want to?

Ice_Cool

I sense some sort of lie or exaggeration. There is no action or agenda against people showing affection or holding hands etc.ive been many times and it's a great place to stay especially as a stopover. People drink when they want, hold each other when they want and dress how they want. If your wife was arrested it must have been for a good reason which you have probably hidden

Whatever 'kind of idiots' there are 1.5 million from the UK every year. I have been twenty or thirty times and have never had any problems whatsoever. I have also never seen a drunk or heard of a theft

tomtom.miet

I'am just wondering what kind of idiots wanna go to such a bad place which is so restricted by law like Dubai. I will never go even for free. People don't even check culture etc where they are going. They think they can do whatever they want and soon later they cry and asking for help cause they have been jailed or fined ridiculous money.

Be aware this time of year is very hot....was just out there Sept this year for work and it was ridiculous...however, I often go on holidat end of May so it is a different experience when lounging by the pool.

But look at the sea view along the Strait of Hormuz. You will see more British warships than if you visited Portsmouth. Just as point of reference a map, just under the "Khai" of RaK was where the Iranians hijacked a British flagged oil tanker this week

I suppose it is horses for courses but 40c really is no big deal. We have hiked a six mile trail in the Hajar mountains in 40c without drama, and that was two 60 +year olds carrying 10kg packs. 46c in an ancient quarry close to Aswan was no fun but you can function even in that. We have just come back from Abu Dhabi and that was 40c + every day. The record temperature for the UK is 38.5c

Toptrumpet

This is a lovely hotel right on the beach and I first stayed there probably 20 years ago when it was first built in the middle of nowhere. The last time I stayed there was 6 years ago and took 3 children, we had a suite with a separate lounge and kitchen area that converted into the beds for the kids of a night time. I’d recommend the hotel, but as everyone else says, the heat in June is too hot even to lay on a sun lounger. I’m not convinced by Destination2 after reading a few reviews on tripadvisor that the headline price is not always available. They are only booking agents putting packages together. OP, it is a good deal on price but I’m not voting hot or cold because of the above. In June and July they almost give rooms away in Dubai and you can probably get just a good a deal if not better with someone like travelrepublic who are a genuine booking agent and not a ‘middleman’.

azzy129

Ohhh… calm down! I didn't say you can get this hotel for £29pn, I said alternative 4 star hotels. I even gave alternative flights to Abu Dhabi. If you feel that this is a good deal for that time of year, and considering that there are many mid range and top end hotels to chose from, then this is ideal for those who don't like to put in the legwork and research for other (cheaper) options

dogpatch

Their approval ratings are excellent. You can complete the entire booking online.

Toptrumpet

Are Destination2 a booking agents website, where they get you on the hook with a good offer price and then after they’ve taken your details and your credit card details then punt your requirements around and try and find the deal they offered and when they find their ‘deal has expired’ offer you an alternative at a higher price? Or are they an actual booking site where you deal solely with them?

I did cover that: In August, temperatures in Abu Dhabi hover around 36°C, rising to a high of 42°C in the peak of the day. The temperature drops to around 29°C after dark, so you’ll be grateful for air conditioning at night. Just 10mm of rain’s expected in August, while the waters of the Persian Gulf measure a bath-like 33°C. At that time of year some people may like to visit for the luxury and grandeur rather than the pool and beach experiences.

g-diddy

What did that poor child do, to be sent away to Abu Dhabi in August?! It will be like 50 celcius there at that time of year! A few years ago I thought I bagged a bargain going to Dubai in July, upon landing I soon found out why it was so cheap! All the locals head to Europe to cool down and only the crazy people visit at this time of year! Just stepping out of the hotel for a few minutes will feel like entering an oven, and in the evenings it is still 32+ celcius.

I had a look online on this subject and it seems it's mentioned frequently it's frowned upon between unmarried couples to hold hands. Begs the question if you would still feel the say way if the guy revealed he was gay and in a same sex partnership. Would you still say you can do what you want to?

I sense some sort of lie or exaggeration. There is no action or agenda against people showing affection or holding hands etc.ive been many times and it's a great place to stay especially as a stopover.

I suppose it is horses for courses but 40c really is no big deal. We have hiked a six mile trail in the Hajar mountains in 40c without drama, and that was two 60 +year olds carrying 10kg packs. 46c in an ancient quarry close to Aswan was no fun but you can function even in that. We have just come back from Abu Dhabi and that was 40c + every day. The record temperature for the UK is 38.5c

Toptrumpet

This is a lovely hotel right on the beach and I first stayed there probably 20 years ago when it was first built in the middle of nowhere. The last time I stayed there was 6 years ago and took 3 children, we had a suite with a separate lounge and kitchen area that converted into the beds for the kids of a night time. I’d recommend the hotel, but as everyone else says, the heat in June is too hot even to lay on a sun lounger. I’m not convinced by Destination2 after reading a few reviews on tripadvisor that the headline price is not always available. They are only booking agents putting packages together. OP, it is a good deal on price but I’m not voting hot or cold because of the above. In June and July they almost give rooms away in Dubai and you can probably get just a good a deal if not better with someone like travelrepublic who are a genuine booking agent and not a ‘middleman’.

azzy129

Ohhh… calm down! I didn't say you can get this hotel for £29pn, I said alternative 4 star hotels. I even gave alternative flights to Abu Dhabi. If you feel that this is a good deal for that time of year, and considering that there are many mid range and top end hotels to chose from, then this is ideal for those who don't like to put in the legwork and research for other (cheaper) options

I did cover that: In August, temperatures in Abu Dhabi hover around 36°C, rising to a high of 42°C in the peak of the day. The temperature drops to around 29°C after dark, so you’ll be grateful for air conditioning at night. Just 10mm of rain’s expected in August, while the waters of the Persian Gulf measure a bath-like 33°C. At that time of year some people may like to visit for the luxury and grandeur rather than the pool and beach experiences.

g-diddy

What did that poor child do, to be sent away to Abu Dhabi in August?! It will be like 50 celcius there at that time of year! A few years ago I thought I bagged a bargain going to Dubai in July, upon landing I soon found out why it was so cheap! All the locals head to Europe to cool down and only the crazy people visit at this time of year! Just stepping out of the hotel for a few minutes will feel like entering an oven, and in the evenings it is still 32+ celcius.
