The resort is very green and beautiful, peacocks are walking everywhere, and you can even feed them from your hands! Kids enjoyed it a lot. The stuff was very attentive - we asked for a special menu for kids, and they arranged everything. Also we liked a variety of restaurants - the hotel is located away from Dubai center, but all their restaurants and thematic dinners won't let you get bored of monotonous food. Lots of things to do - sports, swimming pools, golf, shooting, small zoo. We really enjoyed the stay, highly recommend. The beach condition wasn't perfect. Not sure if it depends on a season, we stayed there on June.
