A year ago, almost to this day, I was in Dubai – enjoying the scorching heat. And by enjoying I mean, going from the A/C to the pool and back to the A/C. Because without either of those, in the heat, you can almost feel your skin slowly melting away!!
We stayed at the Jebel Ali Beach Resort, an all-inclusive hotel located next to a nice, private beach, marina and beautiful golf course. It was about an hour from the center of Dubai but had free shuttle service every few hours every day to all the main tourist attractions. Couple of excellent pools, family oriented atmosphere and several superb fine dining restaurants, it was the perfect destination for a beach holiday.
In addition to the main restaurant, there were 5 other specialist restaurants which all served excellent food and provided even better service. And being an all-inclusive package, local alcohol was included which was a great and much-needed perk.
