Having recently returned from a wonderful family holiday to Rixos The Palm Hotel & Suites in Dubai we are excited to share some of our favourite Rixos moments with a photo tour and review of our stay at this Ultra All-Inclusive hotel. It’s difficult when you’re booking a trip to Dubai to decide which hotel to stay at and, indeed which hotel is best for families. Also hotel websites always make their photos perfect so we wanted to share some of our own.
