Five star everything: Food, room, pool, spa and staff. Nothing to complain about. LOVED every minute of my stay. Robinson and Frederick in the Club Lounge were so friendly and professional. Will definitely be back!

Great hotel. Best breakfast. Amazing staff. Beautiful and spacious rooms. This hotel has a lot to be proud of. I thought I would stay one night before moving on the hotels towards the beach but I wish I had stayed more nights here! I most definitely will be staying here again. I chose an airport pick-up, Burj Khalifa views and... More

From the time of arrival until departure this hotel and all employees were exceptional. We arrived well before standard check in time, but the check in person, was extremely helpful and accommodating. The room was fantastic, immaculately clean and well presented, extremely spacious with great balcony over looking the gardens. The meals at the restaurant were excellent as were all... More

The physically pleasing structure of this hotel, inside and out, has "warmth". It is not so opulent that you only see luxury. You see and feel more, which is a grand feat in Dubai. And we contribute that to the Raffles team, to the men and women who make you feel welcomed, comfortable, and genuinely want you to enjoy your... More

This hotel provided the best service I have ever had all staff we came into contact with to be genuinely helpful and wanted to go the extra mile. Tip: Its not on the beach, but the pool is beautiful and the beach isn't far!

From the moment we checked in we found all staff we came into contact with to be genuinely helpful and friendly. The hotel is beautiful and luxurious. Our room was massive, beautifully appointed, with large bathroom with separate bath, shower. Large balcony. We had access to the Club Lounge, well worth paying extra. The hotel joins Wafi Mall.

Well what can I say Raffles Dubai exceeded my expectation, they out do themselves the longer you stay! Its easy to see why they are in pole position and in a city such as Dubai with its consistently high standards and range of luxury living options this is no mean feat.
