In general both are fine. What are your criteria? What are you looking for?

Thanks Phil, as a new Mum this will be our first trip aboard with a little one, so I would love to hear from others what I should be looking for?

Atlantis is busy and buzzy with high end prices and because it's at the end of the palm island not as conveneint for other things in Dubai.

Jumeirah Beach hotel is part of a large complex known as the Madinat with many bars and restaurants to choose from and only 5 minutes in a cab from Mall of the Emirates, where there is a huge Carrefour supermarket and other stores like Boots, where you can get provisions for the we'an.

Both are fine when travelling with an infant - in fact most hotels in Dubai are fine as they cater well for children.

It really depends on how convenient you want there to be other things for you to get to quite easily

Well we parents are all a bit different.

From my own experience travelling with infants is easy.

Make sure that you have the seats with baby cods and be early at the gate for pre-boarding.

If you still breastfeed there are actually very little problems in terms of food. Just do not experiment.

If not, take your own powder and decide about the bottle steriliser. I always went for microwave bottle steam steriliser. Some hotels even put a small microwave in the room.

Both hotels offer baby cods, but you might want to inform them before arrival.

Your stroller will suffer a bit from the sand.

Key is that you take good care about sun protection. Your baby will need more liquids with the heat. Be careful with the a/c.

Take a good initial stock of pampers. Then buy them locally.

Otherwise enjoy.

For the position alone my choice would definitely be the Jumeirah Beach hotel you have all the Madinat restaurants a short abra trip away and even although your infant is too young you and your partner can enjoy a few hours at the Wadi Wadi.

I'd opt for the JBH too based on it's position.

This is our 5th trip and this time we're taking our 17 wk old & 3.5 year old to the Dar Al Masyaf. I would heartily recommend a hotel at Madinat Jumeirah or the Jumeirah beach hotel. It's a fabulous place to go and ideal for new families :)
