With so many resorts in and around the Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah area, it can be quite hard to decide which ones to go to for a family pool day. We have rounded up a handful, that we have been – and loved.
Remember to call them before you head over to check for availability!

Enjoy a pool and beach day in Dubai with the little ones.

Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah
Waldorf Astoria at the Palm has a lovely family pool with steps along the sides for the younger ones. There’s a small shaded toddler pool right by the bathrooms (that’s always handy, isn’t it!) Pssst. They also have an adults-only pool should you decide to sneak off for some quiet time while daddy (or mummy) stays with the kids. Don’t forget to grab a bite at Sunset 55 at the end of the day – it’s such a beautiful beach bar, plus the kids can keep on running around if they wish!

Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Dubai Jumeirah Beach
Doubletree has a beautiful infinity pool overlooking Ain Dubai. The toddler pool is partially shaded, with water buckets to add to the fun. The little ones will love watching the planes flying pass Ain Dubai, jet skis whizzing around and tractors pulling jet skis on trailers. Don’t forget the scooters, as you can always take the little ones scootering along the boardwalk by JBR Beach, to Bluewaters after.

The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort
