We spent 7 nights at this hotel in June 2014. On our previous visit to Dubai we had stayed at The Atlantis. Although the Ramada Plaza may not have the glitz and glamour of The Atlantis, it more than made up for that with the very warm welcome and friendly staff.
We had interconnecting executive rooms which were furnished to an exceptionally high standard. The cleanliness of the whole complex was excellent. The cleaning staff are very helpful.
The food was of a high standard with plenty of choice. The location is superb - situated in a very vibrant area with lots of restaurants dotted about The Walk and the Marina. In fact, this is in contrast to The Atlantis which is a little bit remote.
We would recommend this hotel to anybody whether travelling on business, as a couple or as a family.
This is excellent value for money, but retains a luxury feel.
A special mention to the Concierge Rama. Also, to the dining room staff Shankar, Lalit, Haja, Ashwin and Anoop - who are all extremely attentive and helpful. They are a credit to the hotel.
All in all - highly recommended to anybody wanting to depart from the 5* merry-go-round - but not sacrifice on quality.
