Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
With a host of facilities including three swimming pools and a large private sandy beach with watersports, this large particularly family-friendly resort is eternally popular. It's ideal if you want to relax at a resort with lots of facilities, rather than do lots of sightseeing. Set in the popular Jumeirah Beach Residence, over three buildings nestled in spacious landscaped grounds, there are a host of eateries and bar options, and a Roman-style spa and health club. There's lots of opportunities for games on-site, including tennis and squash courts, and volleyball. Many of the 500 comfortable guest rooms have balconies and sea views, plus all the mod cons.

The overwhelming choice of eateries and bars is fantastic. A KFC - Kerala Fried Chicken, rather than food from the well-known fast food joint - at restaurant Indya by Veneet is suitably succulent.
