A great hotel for a short (not overnight) stay in the Jumeirah Beach district. The location of the hotel is right on Jumeirah beach, with a view of the Atlantis Palm in the distance. The view is quite nice, however it is a very busy promenade with one hotel after the other scattered along the street. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops nearby. The location of the hotel is ideal for those staying in Dubai for a few days, however I would not recommend this hotel for a brief stopover as it is a fair distance from the airport.
The decor of the lobby was decorated beautifully with elegant and simple Christmas decorations, which is a nice touch given that Christmas was two weeks away. It was dimly lit, which is a nice change given how bright it is outside and lightly scented with the signature Sofitel brand scent.
Check-in was swift despite being very busy. Upon arrival I requested that my booking of Single beds be changed to a room with a King bed instead. The staff at the hotel was very accommodating and attentive, processing my request and upgrading me to a suite for the night as I was checking out early in the morning. In every part of the hotel, the staff are friendly, always smiling and greeting you with a hello madam.
Now to the room - it was fantastic. The rooms are airy and spacious, fully equipped with all the modern amenities that you would need. The view from the balcony was very nice, with a beautiful breeze in the evening. At night you can see the Atlantis Palm lit up in the distance.
There's a good variety in the room service menu. I was only able to try the breakfast menu, which had a variety of delicious smoothies and shakes, as well as seasonal fresh fruit.
I'm a big fan of the Sofitel brand and highly recommend it to any traveller - business and leisure. And the Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach did not disappoint.
