Stayed 2 nights mid February before joining a cruise , we have stayed 6 times before in Dubai at the Zabeel Saray , Mina al Salam , One and Only and the Hilton across the road . We chose the Residences as we wanted to be on the JBWalk as we knew there were a good selection of restaurants and you enjoyed the facilities of the Hilton across the road . This is an apartment hotel and doesnt enjoy the same fabulous feel of the public areas that the other hotels do but gives you a central location with easy access to independent restaurants , supermarkets , shops etc so that you are not held captive to the high hotel prices . We are a couple and travelled with our 15 year old son , we stayed in a studio room on floor 5 which was spacious and clean with a view to the rear towards the harbour .
We found the lifts to be a pain as mentioned already by many , being on floor five I asked if we could use the stairs but was told no they were for staff or emergencys only .
The pool area is fine although is in the shade for long periods , we used the Hilton beach across the road . We ate in the JBW and found meals for the 3 of us to be around £50.00 , you cannot buy alcohol in the JBW restaurants or indeed any of the local supermarkets so if you want wine etc you must go to a hotel restaurant .
One tip is to call into Dubai Duty Free after you pass through immigration at the airport and buy any alcohol you may require for your room , also soft drinks are only about 50 pence a bottle much cheaper than hotel prices although you can buy soft drinks in any of the supermarkets near by .
Taxis are very cheap and it will only cost about £7-£10.00 to take a taxi to the Dubai Mall about 20klm away .
We found the breakfast to be excellent , probably one of the best at any Dubai hotel we have stayed at , very good choice , excellent staff , and a good choice of coffees etc ie Latte ,Capachino etc .
The hotel the trick for us and we would stay there again for a few nights , if you want the full luxury feel go to any of the quality hotels including all the ones mentioned at the beginning of this report.
