“Fantastic Holiday .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

We arrived late in the hours of the morning and very tired . We checked in and we were offered an upgrade to a Tower room , we were taken to the room to see if we liked it ... And of course we did ! Our luggage was brought up in seconds . The Staff are a credit to the hotel ... In particular in The Shades Bar , service with a smile every night was a girl called "Cheers " the Piano Bar a lovely girl called Rose catered for our every need ... Nothing any trouble to her . Our house keeper Erold was a super star ... Cleaned our room , always made sure we had lots of products and the water was stocked up accordingly . The linen and towels changed always when we asked . We could not fault this hotel at all ... Maybe the price of a bottle of wine could be cheaper as we have bought the same wine in South Africa for around £6 a bottle . We had a superb meal in the Rhodes Twenty 10 again the staff were fantastic . The hotel was spotless , there was always someone cleaning something . The Music is the Piano Bar was very good ... A Duo sang most nights . The pool side was great always plenty of new comfy beds and staff on hand if you required any drinks or food . We were celebrating an anniversary , and when we arrived back to our room a bottle of Champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries had been left for us along with a card . When we first arrived at the hotel I must say we struggled to be out of bed before 10 , as the beds were so comfortable. So some mornings we didn't make the gym ! We will be sure to return here next year and maybe bring some of our friends with us . Thank you to all the staff at Le Royal Meridien .

This was our fith time we had stayed at Le Royal Meridian & yet again they exceeded our expectations. When we arrived we were informed that we had been upgraded, however when we looked at the room we had booked & the upgraded room we found the room smaller than the room we had originally booked. When we returned to reception & told them that we would just keep the room we had booked because it was larger than the upgraded room we were informed that they would sort this out in the morning as there were no other rooms available.
The next day we were upgraded to a Tower Suite which just blew us away, our 5 year old daughter felt like a princess & my wife who was 7 months pregnant was just over the moon. Later on when we returned to the suite all of our luggage etc had been transferred from our other room & put away in the suite. There was even 2 birthday cards for my wife & daughter along with a chocolate cake & bottle of wine compliments of the hotel.
As usual the service in the hotel & poolside/gardens was second to none & the staff's enthusiasm was exceptional.
Our daughter loved "The Penguin Club" so much she wanted to go there all day each day, which is a credit to the staff running the club. Each day there were different activities & not just sat down in front of the TV or computer, from gym classes to glass painting to getting to make pizza in the kitchen
We have been going to Dubai now for the past 8 years sometimes twice a year & cannot see past Le Royal Meridian for quality & service, so much so we are returning there again next year as a family of four.

Very clean hotel, service is generally very good, the pool areas are excellent, bathing area is very large plenty of chairs and most importantly plenty of space.

The restaurants are good but expensive, the Buffett restaurant is too expensive for what you get - but with kids it's probably the best place to eat in the hotel.

My only downside to this visit was that my Oakley sunglasses where taken from my room - not best pleased -

I would recommend this hotel, but after four visits I think the next time I go to Dubai I will try another hotel along jumeriah beach

From the moment that we arrived at the front of the hotel the service was exceptional. No job was too much.. We had a slight issue with the wifi in the room and a technician was sent up within 3minutes to sort it out..

Ice? No problem.. We ended up having someone check if any fresh ice was required on a daily basis.

Such a beautiful hotel... Amazing gardens and beach.. The hotel is located ideally with some great views.. Easy access to transport...

If I go to Dubai again I would immediately opt for the Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort and Spa..

We stayed for 5 nights, returning on the 1st december. We have stayed at the LRM five times now, and you cannot beat it. Arriving in the early hours from Manchester, and the room wasn't ready. We were treated to some lovely tea and cakes while we waited. Our room was large, clean and quiet (as usual!) We opted for half board, the buffet restaurant was excellent with plenty of choice! We also sampled the Indian at GH, pricey but a lovely treat! We were told the hotel was busy, but to be honest there so many spots around the beach/pool we didnt notice at all. The pools, beach, gardens (everything really) is immaculate.. We cannot wait to return!! The staff are all so pleasant, and obviously well cared for and happy to work for LRM. We have never slept so well, the bed was so comfy!!

A great conference venue - easy to reach from the airport and good value. The staff are very friendly and the food is excellent. The hotel is immaculately clean and the rooms are spacious and well designed. The beds are very comfortable and it needs the lure of the awesome breakfast to help guests get going at a reasonable time in the mornings! A well run hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view.
