  • Avoid the high season (November to February) and consider the stifling summer months of the low season (June to August) when the rates can drop by up to 75%
  • Search the web for last-minute offers and package deals
  • If you are set on staying at a particular hotel, phone to request the best rate and ask if there are any special deals on offer
  • Check that rates are all-inclusive. Many hotels charge 20% tax, 10% municipal tax, and 10% service charge
  • Many hotels offer complementary (but unadvertised) airport, beach and mall shuttle buses; enquire
  • If you plan to stay for a week or more, consider renting an apartment. Some of the city's hotels offer serviced, furnished apartments (with full access to the hotel's facilities) for rent by the day, week or month. Prices start from around 650 UAE Dirham for a midrange studio apartment but drop significantly the longer you rent them.
  • Check out the city's top restaurants for special dining discounts including up to 50% off for "early birders" (eating dinner before 8.30pm) and excellent-value set menus.
  • Check out hotel spas which are beginning to offer special deals
