Transfer by taxi from Dubai airport to hotel

Has anybody taken a taxi from Dubai airport to hotel without pre-booking? If so, what was the cost and was it straightforward? We're staying at the Jumeirah Beach Resort and our flight arrives at 5.40am. Thanks

<<Does anyone know on average what a taxi will cost from the Airport to a hotel on the Dubai Marina Promenade?>>

No more than 100 dirhams likely (if you're going at a time when there is no traffic.)

<< I read there are women -specific taxis- Is that a must or just optional?>>

Optional.

A heli transfer would be awesome but I'm certain it won't fit within our budget. lol

We paid 100 dirham to Jumeirah beach. My daughter and I experienced the lady drivers at the airport as extremely rude and just took a taxi with a very friendly male driver.

no need to pre-book the taxi. you can take your taxi easily at the airport. but if you want to save more money then you must keep in mind that there are two types of taxis by the RTA. one taxi is one which is used mostly by the whole city, but there is also one which called as Airport Taxi, it costs more than the other taxi. So you can opt the first one and can go anywhere using that taxi.

The airport taxies have a huge amount of space. We had 4 large suitcases and 2 travel trollies and it fitted in perfect.

Spiro, taxis are plentiful and available 24x7. The cream coloured taxi will cost you around 85 dirhams. They are metered and take cash in local currency.
