Here's a classic case of quantity over quality. While I did have a really great "Cucina" omelette (open face, 3-egg with mozzarella, basil, and tomato) the rest of the spread was not really above average. If I was Marriott Gold or higher, you can't beat a free buffet however I couldn't see myself returning to pay for breakfast.

We had the lunch buffet from Market Place on a Friday where guest can enjoy a lavish buffet from their three restaurants; Market Place, Hofbräuhaus and Bamboo Lagoon as per guest's liking! Our seating was at Market Place, which is a mix of Indian, Arabic and continental dishes. Dishes are exceptionally variety as well as tasty. And their exclusive grill... More

Very bad experience, unprofessional staff and bad customer service. Should not offer brunch on Friday if your staff will answer their customer " WE DONT HAVE" for every request... It is sad to experience such a treatment from Marriott.

The servers are doing their best but they are overwhelmed by the crowd The clientele is also... More

Our first ever Friday brunch venue when we first moved to Dubai and it's still one of my favorites. The roast pork with the crispy crackling is absolutely delicious and so are the other dishes from the other stations of different countries like Thai, Chinese, Indian, Hawaiian, Japanese etc. Basically it's a huge spread of choices and definitely worth a...
