“Perfect Beach Facilities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

I recently spent a day at this hotel, even though I only visited for a day, I have to comment on the great experience I had ( I was staying at the Burj Khalifa area on a general holiday to Dubai ) after contacting their Spa I spent most of the day at their Beach area, and their personnel was very attentive ( the detail of the cold little towels is awesome ) , the food service is very fast, the sand is spotless, the sun chairs are well maintained, overall have to say that their outside facilities are very spacious, clean and the grass areas are perfect green, personnel always at your service and with good presence.

Keep up the good job.

Before booking I saw the hotel was at one end of Jumeira Beach and I thought do I want to be that far - After a fantastic 7 day stay I can safely say - YES I did the right thing!
Basically Taxis are not that expensive and because the infrastructure is so well developed and taxi drivers so honest, in a few dollar or euros or pounds you can get anywhere in 20 minutes. Emirates mall cost 50 drh or 10 euros. If you can afford the Royal Meridien then forget about the metro etc - just taxi everywhere.
The hotel has fantastic sea views with one building facing the sea directly and two perpendicular and this is where you want to be - I think the middle wing - the one facing the sea directly is the best because there is also less walking to do to get to the pool and breakfast.
I loved this hotel and commend it for the following
- Very good valet service who always wrote down the taxi number - put a little card in your hand in case you left something behind or needed to get back and give directions to the Taxi driver - I thought that was a very nice touch and the staff at the door are courteous and efficient.
- The managers at the breakfast place are wonderful and always did their best in case of any concerns - Breakfast - YES take the included option because very good and very complete with everything under the sun - cold cults and Indian and Arabic and very nice fresh fruits and well worth it.
- I would also like to say a special Thank you to Joe the German Manager who kindly changed our rooms to the sea facing one without any fuss or hesitation and that way we had a friend who always greeted us through out our stay.
- I LOVED the fact that Internet was free and worked BEAUTIFULLY - No problems (sometimes it is free in these hotels and connection is lousy) not in this one!
- Lots of complimentary water - Believe me you need it.
- LOved the orchids and candle decor in the lobby and it was even changed in the seven days we were there - white orchids - one day - red orchids the next - that must cost, so it was greatly appreciated.
- Rooms were nice sized - although if you are big family bear this in mind - The rooms in the side wings - perpendicular to the sea are actually much bigger.Bed is super king and beautiful. Lots of cupboard space as well. Don't misunderstand even the rooms in the angled buildings have a very good view of the sea - We were three but we still chose the front view. We had the extra bed open all the time next to our double bed and we still had ample space to move around.
- I really liked the fact that there were LOCAL taxis always available and that saves you a lot of money - you do not need to hire private cars.
- The location of the hotel is very good because if you are going Dubai side then you can get to Emirates Mall etc in 20 minutes and cheaply and if you want to go for a day spend and back to Abu Dhabi then you can also do that very quickly for 250 DRH return fare in a local taxi and see Ferrari World, Abu Dhabi mosque etc which I strongly recommend - because it is at the far end. Airport to Royal Meridien is about 100DRH. (20 euros or 15 pounds or 1500Rs or 30 usd)
- Did not use the spa and did not eat in besides the breakfast but the pool I used frequently - it was lovely - there are three pools and manned by life guards so kids are safe and looked after.
- Just one piece of caution - There are several Meridiens in Dubai and what you want is the LE ROYAL MERIDIEN. That is the little jewel. They look after you andI would definitely recommend it.
There is a very 'feel-good' factor about this hotel when you come back dusty and tired which will make you feel that whatever you are pay - it is worth it.

The only three things
The registering could have been faster - too much paperwork and to much walking.
I didn't like the pillows, and will take my own the next time i go there, they felt too soft and useless.
But go back I will - with or without pillows.
The registering could have been faster - too much paperwork and to much walking.

Room Tip: better view slightly smaller rooms - then choose middle wing bigger room - with a good sea view too...

That hotel has excellent location and in a step of Marina Walk, where you can spend enjoyable time each evening . Amazing beach and green landscape around. Delicious breakfast with a lot of choice. Excellent service of F&B, H&K and recreation staff. Just 2 points, 1) the furniture in the room is too old: 2)i was a little disappointed with Reception service, but they were polite :) So i do recommended!

Room Tip: I had a corner sea view suit and like it the view so much as i had a view from 2 sides!

i recently stayed at the le Royal meridian with my daughter for an early birthday celebration. This is the second time I have stayed here and it was every bit as good as the first time. I have never stayed anywhere that is so clean, the staff are cleaning constantly The staff cannot do enough for you.. We ate at the Buffet restaurant most of the time, the choice of food each evening is like a theme night, with Asian, Indian etc which is ok if you like a varied men. We ate at the Maya one evening which was excellent and a nice chang,.if your staying half board you get an allowance towards the cost of the meal. The drinks in the hotel are quite expensive, but this is to be expected in Dubai. We paid £13 for one glass of wine, and a small beer was about £7. Even saying this we wouldnt hesitate to return in the future.
My daughter had e mailed the hotel before we visited saying the holiday was for my birthday, when we went back to the room one day, there was a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a bottle of champagne and a lovely cake, which made the holiday even more special.
A very kind and appreciated thought and end to the holiday.
The hotel is in an excellent location, if you want to eat out, it is a few minutes walk to .The Walk, where there are numerous restaurants and probably about ten minutes walk to the Marina, where there are also many restaurants.

We have enjoyed many vacations world wide over the years, and have yet to find a hotel which
offers so much at such an high standard and luxury, nothing is left to chance, Dubai offers wall to wall sunshine, Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa offers wall to wall Luxury and service which sets the bench mark which others strive to achieve

Room Tip: Deluxe Sea View preferably away from the lifts, there isn't a bad room, go and enjoy, the staff...

We spent a week in this very nice resort from 20th of April to 27th of April.
We arrived to the resort very early (7 AM) and the receptionist, in order to put to sleep the little Nicole, was very kind to find us a room even if the standar check in should be at 2 PM.
This was only the first kindness we received from all the staff of the hotel.
During all the holiday we had the sensation to be in the paradise with all the staff ready to help us with all our needs (e.g. when we departed the manager gifted to Nicole a little pink bear; they bring to us 3 or 4 towel to put on the grass for playing with Nicole)

The only point to improve is relate to the complementary internet connection that was really slow, but I'm sure they are already working on it!
