“Brilliant Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Stayed here for my wife's birthday.
Hotel noticed it was her birthday from her passport and gave us an upgrade to a suite and even sent drinks and a birthday cake to our room.
The room was excellent, very clean and comfortable with a super view over the pool and beach.
The staff couldn't have been more helpful and made the stay very relaxing.
Hotel is situated on the beach and right next to JBR Walk and the nightlife.
Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Club rooms give access to the club lounge which is great value for evening drinks and breakfast

This has always been one of my favourite hotels in the world. The service is outstanding, even better than before.
Our butler, Roy was an absolute pleasure and nothing was too much trouble.
The club facilities are fantastic, outstanding food at the high tea in the afternoons and a wonderful selection at the evening drinks and food.
Three pools, 8 restaurants and the best spa make the experience incredible. You must try the 5 pools at the spa going from hot to freezing.
The staff really make this hotel one of the best in terms of service and you have to sty here if you visit Dubai.
The location is excellent, right at the beginning of the walk which is filled with great shopping and restuarants.

Room Tip: Try a high floor in in the Club Tower.

I decided to give my husband a choice of late birthday present and he picked a stay at this luxurious hotel. Now we have stayed here about 9 times and I can honestly say it just gets better and better. We have seen a lot of construction over the years and it doesn't affect the royal Meridien. The management never seem to stand still for a minute, always on the move, improving facilities and the service, disruption of any sort is kept to a minimum, and the customer is always put first! If you do have a problem staff bend over backwards to help you,
The staff are very pleasant, lots of smiles and can't do enough to make your stay special. Now you might think that we get biased treatment because we have stayed before but I can assure you that you will have the best break in Dubai here at this hotel. We all work hard for our money and you won't regret spending it here!
Gary Rhodes restaurant is one of if not the best in Dubai! Go to the sister hotel The Grovsner to Bar 44, amazing views, and the Buddha bar. Fabulous fresh food in all the restaurants with plenty of choice. This hotel is an award winner, you will see all the trophies in the foyer, won through hard work, determination and the team spirit. We were sorry to leave and can't wait for our summer break, yes we have the choice of other luxury hotels and locations but the royal Meridien has a very special aura that you can't get enough of. Go and enjoy this lovely place !

We stayed here for 10 nights in January 2012. The staff was very friendly and met our every needs. The hotel was beautiful.coundn't have asked for more. On an excellent beach, absolute comfort in everyway possible. You have to be there to experience the hospitality of all the staff - words cannot explain it. Hotel is 5 star in every way possible in terms of its facilities, food, cleanliness, comfort, pool and beach facilities and service etc. .Will definately stay on my next visit,

I stayed in Dubai for 2 nights and I have to say that the location was excellent and the service was next to 7 star. The bedrooms are roomy and very clean. I would ask for a sea view and then you can view the main swimming pool as well as see from afar the palm beach island. Great place to stay for business and for pleasure

Ok I wrote a bad review last week & promised I'd re review if i changed my mind by the end of the 7 night stay. Well I did.
I'll have to explain lest you think it's unfair to those reading that I write two different reviews but they appeared to win me over with service in the end. It all happened when there was a very strange amorous couple in the room beside us. The sound proofing it has to be said was not good. We could hear everything. It cannot be the hotels fault for their strange behaviour that started at 2 am and continued till 10 am.
We had to speak to the duty manager who was aware of the problem & moved us to a suite and it was beautiful. A bottle of champagne was in the room for us and a big basket of fruit. The next 5 days were perfect. Breakfast appeared to genuinely improve. The lower pool we preferred as it was quieter and the beach is beautiful. Food prices for lunch are too high and I was disappointed you could not get falafel & hummous for example for lunch. Lots of burgers n club sandwiches type of rubbish that all hotels worldwide specialise in. Please please expand your lunch menu.
Service is excellent. We dined in the Italian the last night and it was very good. All other nights we dined out as we like eating out of the hotel and I will review those separately. We had fantastic food in Segreto and Pai Thai in AL QASR. In st maxims in Emerites mall. In a Lebanese restaurant in Dubai beach and marine hotel.
We are definitely returning annually to Dubai and will stay again in Le meridien.
We will get a suite. I stand over my review of the deluxe room I had paid for. I actually paid huge money. Approx 400 euros per night and those rooms are not worth it. The hotel must look into the prices of these rooms and solve the smell from the air condition/condensation issue.
Our room 706 was beautiful.
Hope this helps you all and doesn't lead to confusion. They won me over after night two. Yes there were hiccups but at least they dealt with them quickly.
