Day trip to Dubai

We will be staying at le Meridien Al Aqah Beach Resort and although this is to be a chill out holiday, I'm thinking it would be nice surprise for grandchildren to spend a day at the Atlantis water park. Arabian Adventures say that although they can provide tickets for aquaventure, they can't provide return transfers. Any ideas please?

Best is to hire a car with driver for full day and make your way to the Atlantis. you can buy aquaventure tickets directly.

Just be aware that Atlantis is probably a good 2 hour (possibly 2 and a half) drive from your hotel. Either self drive or as the other poster says hire a car with driver for the day.

Do remember to bring your local D/L, an international D/L, and include CDW while renting.

Did you consider http://www.dreamlanduae.com/ instead of Atlantis? It's closer to your location, much cheaper & very good value for money!

Sorry to say but there is no comparison between Dreamland and Atlantis.

Thank you all for your help. I didn't know about Dreamland, so that's a possibility. Either that or a car with driver I think.

Twice a week the hotel run a courtesy bus into Dubai. Once in Dubai, get a taxi to Atlantis. Probably work out much cheaper.

We stayed 2 years ago and some people we met did it. They had a great time.
