We're going to stay at Atlantis in Dubai for a long weekend doing the water park. We're half-board only, so I'm thinking we will probably need cash for drinks, snacks & lunches. Which is their preferred currency please?

The UAE dirham. You can buy them at any money exchange in UK/airport.

Do they prefer that Ladytron? Just wondering, as when we go to the Caribbean they always seem to prefer US Dollars & was wondering if the UAE might be the same?

No, take local currency.

Yes local currency. Pretty sure most places took cards at Atlantis anyway though..

Local currency but you should be able to sign your orders at the hotel to your room bill and settle your bill at checkout.

Probably late replying but we go every year Dubai .the preferred currency is dirhams .which is best to exchange in Dubai you get a better rate specially in malls .
