Stayed at the Sofitel Jumeira with my wife for our 31st anniversary. On arrival we were given a corner room but told that we'll move to a full sea view room on the next day.Our Room was facing a block of flats! When requesting a Full sea view room on the following day, I was told that the Hotel's full and that was it! had a small challenge with the desk guy but to no avail.
Breakfast was good but the staff are totally untrained.Sometime the morning queues were long but for some reasons certain guests managed to jump the breakfast queue with the cooperation of the staff.......never seen this anywhere else in the world..must be a Dubai thing!
At breakfast we constantly had to request t-spoons, butter and coffees practically on a daily basis.
Had dinner one night at the Hotel, average for a 5* hotel and expensive.Dress code inexistant (some people had shorts, some trainers , flip flops and tee-shirts (Contrary to the Hotel requirements). Eat out ...better value & quality food.
The construction work opposite the Hotel was very noisy and continuous all night.
I would not recommend this Hotel to anyone. The Grosvenor House less than 1/2 mile away is exquisite for the same money.
