“Brilliant hotel, we had a great experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I can't speak highly enough about this hotel, from the moment we got there we were treated like royalty. The staff are so friendly and helpful in every way.

The hotel room itself was the definition of comfort and class and so were the grounds and pool.

Breakfast was amazing with so much selection, anything you fancy for breakfast was there along with fantastic coffee and a selection of fresh fruits.

Barasti Bar was quality and to have it on the doorstep was a complete bonus.

In the sun bathing area was quality aswell with comfy seating coupled with a stunning view and a lovely beach.

The location seemed a bit off the map on first impression but in fact turned out to be ideal so don't let that be one of the factors to dwell on if your cosidering this hotel.

Thats it from me, thanks to the staff for helping to make our week the most enjoyable ever. Much love...

We have now been twice to this hotel the first was a 4 day break the second a ten day holiday and I am still not tired of this hotel or Dubai itself. The meet and greet was friendly and informative. The hotel foyer is spacious, spotless and welcoming. The staff can't do enough for you. There is plenty of choice in the restaurants. Our room both times was a corner suite luxurious and the views fabulous. With 5 or 6 swimming pools you can pick from your spoilt for choice! The garden staff knew by your 1st day where you liked your sunbirds and how many towels they would be ready and waiting for you each morning already set up What service! I'd go back tomorrow if I could!

The newly re-furbished Le Meridien Le Mina Seyahi is sophisticated and elegant with small design features to be discovered all over the place (Bedroom mirrors have gps coordinates etched into them), but it was the warmth and efficiency of the staff that made our stay outstanding.
From the moment we arrived they made us very welcome and took time to make sure our experience at the hotel was pleasurable.
Our room with a balcony overlooking the marina was very comfortable and contained all the facilities you would expect in this standard of hotel and the breakfast selection was excellent as well as the evening meal we ate at the restaurant.
The Hotel does have some teething troubles at the moment, but it has just completed a 10 month re-furbishment. Any small problems were dealt with by an efficient and discreet team who did their best to fix any issues.
The Beds and pillows were comfortable, and our sleep was not troubled by the occasional beach party on an adjacent site.
Our stay at this hotel not only reached but far exceeded our expectation and this was largely due to the service we received from the staff.

We have just returned from a 6 night stay at this hotel. It has just reopened after a refurbishment and is well worth a visit. It has a calm atmosphere, the staff are very keen, polite and anxious to please. The hotel has an arrangement with the much larger Westin hotel next door and as we had a half board booking we tended to eat at the Westin as there was a larger choice of restaurants. Breakfast was as a buffet and offered a wide range of hot and cold food with eggs etc cooked to order. Our main complaint was the appalling internet connection not only in our room but also occasionally in the business centre. They are working on this and I am sure will be resolved rapidly so don't let that put you off staying here. The grounds are beautifully maintained with swimming pools and a clean private beach. There is some building work being carried out on the road outside the hotel but this really wasn't intrusive and was not a problem.

Room Tip: Do ask for a pool/beach view

Have just returned from this Fab hotel. It has recently been refurb and it is ab fab. The staff here are top notch. we arrived in the early hours of the morning to be greeted by really great reception staff. They set the standard for the rest if the team working her aned I must say we were not diappionted by anything. Wwe had a room on the 9th floor with a great view over the marina. The room was nicely recorated. This was the best sleep I have had in a long time. The bed was so comfy I felt really rested after travelling for nearly 12 hours over night.
We had brekfast on the terrace (it is served between 6am and 103o0am week days). Great choice and selection. They were also serving blended fruit jucies to try. I felt spolit for choice. The place is so newly done they had still not taken all the PR pics. WWE had free coffees in th lounge which was relaxing, coffee table books are on all table for light reading if needed. There was also a pastry counter with delightful cakes etc. Our room was kept really clean, the staff even hoovered the balacony . Bathroom clean and spacious. Good selction of toletries. Soft towels. Nice robes and slippers. We had a great meal in the resturant on our last night. The tenderloin steak is really worth the money, wsurprized we did not have steak knives, but they were not required . the steak was full of taste and the table knife cut therough it like butter. Starters and desserts top standard. We finished off the meal with a selction of sweets. All the staff in the resturant wer great. This is a great place to stay and we are looking forward to going back later in the year. Thanks to one and all of the staff . WE started the first week it was opened and a couple of bits were being finished off but this did not impact on the stay

Room Tip: If you can a sea view room , nice balcony which stays cool

Stayed at this hotel 6days after a re-opened after being renovated. The best bit, good views, nice beach, pool and friendly staff. Bed was comfortable but that I am afraid was it. Started with no cold water the first night, nearly scolding myself in the shower. Followed by two days of only cold water again making the shower an interesting experience. Internet didn't work, lights in bathroom kept switching off and then you had to remove the card key and reset the system. television wasn't even plugged in and when I did get it working had a mind of its own when it wanted to work. Room was small, partially because of a small balcony but I found it dark with the choice of furniture, which looked quite cheap. If you face the beach beware there is a beach bar that kept me up until 3:00am with pumping music only to face the crash of a hammer in rooms below me from 8:00am inc. Sunday. Why it was opened with obviously so much to trouble shoot I cannot begin to imagine as all my colleagues faced similar problems. Once everything works there are still far better options in Dubai.

book this for our 30th wedding anniversary, for a short break , the hotel had just reopened 2 days before we arrived, it looked brand new, a very high standard of finish what you would expect from a 5star hotel, cannot say enough about the staff they make you feel at home and nothing is too much for them, they go that extra mile to make your stay the best, we ate in three of the ten restaurants, and the food was better than i expected, fine steaks in Hunters and excellent braised lamb in "The recipe " an al la carte restaurant a very good variety to choose from and excellently presented, also in the italian restaurant with really good pizza, the grounds were spotless and the private beach was not crowded, even though it was shared with its much bigger sister hotel next door, waiters would come and take your order on the beach and deliver the food to you , great service and very courtious, not in your face but there when you need them,we had a great time , and they even managed to get us tickets for the tallest building in the world , which even our rep could not get, thats service for you , i would recommend this hotel no problem and we plan to go there again , we did have a few teething problems which were to be expected but were swiftly delt with by management , they really could not apologise enough , its a nice quiet hotel great for relaxing, and also 20 mminutes from dubai centre , excellent location we had a memorable stay thanks to the staff and management

Room Tip: get a delux sea view or sea view room its worth it good view from all rooms on sea view side
