“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Just coming to the end of our 6 th visit to this wonderful hotel - I cannot praise the staff enough for their sincere politeness and concern over how your holiday is going. The food is plentiful and of the absolute highest quality - both at the Brasserie and at the other restaurants. We missed visiting last year and tried the Zabeel - never again - even planning next visit .
If you are wanting to experience excellent service with fabulous food and one of the most relaxing environments I have ever experienced book now - so sad to be going home tomorrow .

Do not understand why this is at number 6 - for value for money there is no better - cant wait to come back .

Stayed June 2013

We always stay at the GH however decided to add on 3 nights at this hotel. Facilities and grounds are outstanding. Gret choice if pools. Unlike Grosvenor house you ont have to keep changing your spot to catch the sun. Rooms are a bit dated. Club lounge has a great choice and very relaxed. Is you have kids and looking for a beach holiday this hotel ticks all the boxes. We stayed in club tower with a balcony with lovely views. Great choice of restaurants. Service was great but not as good as that at GH.

Room Tip: Upgrade to club and ask for sea view

We stayed for one week with our 1 yr old daughter.
We were checked in straight away and given a drink and cold towel whilst we waited.
Although we arrived early they found us a room, which although large was a smoking room and smelt Terrible. We stayed there until the afternoon by which time they offered us a smaller non smoking room. The service throughout he stay was really good and everyone was very friendly especially to our daughter.
Breakfast was included and had a huge choice of freshly prepared omelettes and pancakes, fruit and more. Very tasty.

The room was cleaned to a High standard every day at a decent time. Wifi is available for free throughout hotel and poolside, sometimes patchy. They supply free bottled water and fruit every day.

For children there is a kids club but my daughter was too young, as its 4-12. However they have us complimentary tokens to get her ice cream and drinks which was nice. Make sure you get kids snacks at the penguin bar as they only 10 dhs whereas super expensive at the regular pool bar.
The pools were great about 3 or 4 of them and 2 suitable for kids. It gets really busy on their weekend though, with outside visitors, although you will always find a sun lounger. Lifeguards on duty at all times.
The beach is a bit of a walk in the hot sun- about 10- 15 mins from the hotel at a slow pace. They have lots of games table tennis, crazy golf for free. There is a childrens area however as its directly in the sun not many children playing on it. They should put a shade over it.
The milkshakes at pool side are delicious but do cost 35 dhs. I found room service cheaper than pool side menu if you can't be bothered to leave the hotel for lunch.
Hotel is 10 minutes walk from Jumeriah Walk which has lots of restaurants and shops. Very good location for most restaurants and site seeing. We went to at the top at the burn which was good. Make sure you book online as its cheaper.
We got cabs straightaway whenever we went out make sure you get the proper labelled taxis. The staff are always in action throughout the hotel, you will never be waiting for service!

The gym is the best I have used at a hotel, very good equipment.

We didn't eat at shades and the brasserie although be warned that most rooms will be affected by the music from shades in the evening as they have live singers which sounded good, as I could hear them from about 9-11pm. It's not so noisy that I couldnt get to sleep though and the baby slept through.
The maya restaurant is excellent I highly recommend.

I highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is everything you would expect out of Dubai! 2 fantastic pools, with an amazing swim-up bar, and plenty of space to lounge. We tried out one of the restaurants, which was pretty amazing--there are several! One a couple quips--our rooms weren't ready when we got there, so we had to hang out in the lounge area for quite awhile waiting, and breakfast was a bit crowded. Had a fantastic massage as well, and the spa is very clean and relaxing. Great location, walking distance to many bars and restaurants along the water.

My family and I, 2 Adults and 2 children have recently returned from a 4 night stay in Dubai and stayed at the Le Royal Meridien. From start to finish this was a wonderful stay. The hotel staff here are exceptional, service is high on the agenda and leaves a lasting impression. Our room was fantastic (a very spacious family suite) with an amazing view of the beach and Arabian sea. Drinks were expensive as you would expect in country not entirely flowing with alcohol but it is easy to ignore when you are drinking in luxury surroundings. Breakfast provided plenty of choice for all nationalities and is buffet based so you can eat as little or as much as you like.
The hotel has the Jumeirah beach walkway (JBR) located just around the corner. There are many shops, cages and restaurants to choose from if you are looking to explore outside the hotel. The marina is also just across the road which is wonderful at night and again has restaurants for many tastes.
This was our first trip to Dubai and a return trip is a must. I would definitely recommend a stay at theLe royal Meridien and would certainly return on our next visit. Great for kids, couples or families.

Room Tip: Deluxe sea view rooms worth upgrading to.
