We returned 2nd oct after a 12 night stay on a b&b basis, £820 each.emirates flights from birmingham,transfer with resorthoppa booked with lowcostholidays.com. On arrival at hotel did not expect to get in room as it was only 9am,was told that room would be ready by 9-30am it wasn't but it was by 10.30am which is a lot better than what i expected.Room was large with good air con,comfy bed,view of marina just and large tv (limited english speaking channels). Location is good for metro 5 minute walk 16 aed , £2.85 for a day ticket. Nearest small shop turn left out of hotel bout 400 yards on left, Nearest shopping mall turn right out of hotel bout 600 yards on right through a few road works, mall is called the address has a large waitrose and other uk type shops.Beach is 15 minutes walk,but we found the hotel pool better it was just way too hot on the beach and sea tempreture did not cool you down it was like bath water!! Now back to the hotel first week at breakfast wasn't too bad sometimes strange things for a breakfast offering eg-corned beef hash,chicken drumsticks,but main problems were having too ask for things every time you went for breakfast eg-plates,cereal bowls,cutlery,fruit juice,hash browns,baked beans & yogurts. Problems really started with breakfast on our last 4-5 days,main problem was the fresh crusty bread it had been progressively getting more and more stale untill it got so bad i complained to the chef,i then asked too speak to the restuarant manager,she offered apoligies but didn't seem too care,but within 5 minutes there was a piping hot fresh baggette on offer,you shouldn't need to have a confrontation to get what should be standard. I would like to add all of the dining room staff were all hard working & really freindly just being let down by the manager ( dark hair,eastern europeon) .All in all a typicial tourist hotel,bout 8 miles from dubai city centre but good transport links, would return but as room only.
