“Love it here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

We have visited this hotel twice and I cannot wait to go back! It's amazing! All the staff are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful and kept immaculate. Love the pool areas even though they can get very busy, you can always find space to relax. Staff are so helpful here too and will bring you cold towels and ice throughout the day to help keep you cool. We loved the restaurants and highly recommend going club as the afternoon tea and evening drinks are brilliant. It's in a great location and its so easy to get around- simply step out the door and the staff will get you a taxi, help you with bags and ensure the driver knows where your going- not sure where to go? Again the staff will help. The hotel made a fuss of us on both visits- the first was when we got engaged there, giving us champagne and strawberries and the second for our 1st Anniversary- giving us flowers and free dessert at the restaurant. It's a special hotel and I really hope we can return soon! Saving up!

Room Tip: If you can, go for a club room or even a tower room- they are amazing!

This hotel has class in spades. Our room on the 9th floor was clean, spacious and well appointed. We were on a half-board basis so breakfasted and dined in the brasserie. Choices for breakfast and dinner were plentiful and varied. Our thanks to the staff in the brasserie for being so pleasant and helpful. The hotel grounds are kept in an immaculate condition and if wasn't for the extreme humidity in August it would have been a delight to walk around them. My wife and I took English Tea in the tea room off the reception area and found it to be well worth the cost, (approximately £25 each). The young Filipino girl who served us was a delight and so intelligent, we wish her well in her studies to an MBA. All-in-all we couldn't fault our stay and hope to return in the near future.

My Husband and I have just finished our annual 13 night Vacation 7nights in Mauritius and 6 nights we always spend at this beautiful truly wonderful 5 star hotel and how its changed since last year but all for the better. As usual the standards the service are right up there the staff are impeccable the food is really good in the brassiere even better than last year.
We always stay in the tower building its now called the club tower its a little different now breakfast is strange the eggs come from the kitchen so you have to wait for your eggs before you can collect the rest of your breakfast I really don't see the point. We tried this one morning and decided we like breakfast in our room at the time we decide.
The daily bottle of wine as now ceased instead from 6pm to 8pm you can go into the club lounge and order just about anything. its good but guests are not always around at these times so will miss out, where as your wine is there in your room no matter what.
Club lounge is open from 12noon for soft drinks tea coffee all day afternoon tea from 3pm til 5pm again if your busy sun bathing ( you cannot wear swim wear which means you have to change) or shopping you miss this service which you have already paid for. its good if your going to stay at the hotel for the entire time of your holiday but anyone going to Dubai does not ever just stay at the hotel. this is definitely a good cost saving service.
The Sea Breeze bar is no longer replaced with Shades for lunchtime a situated near in the tower building so no toilets near the main pool bar. Club building closed under refurbishment.
Sadly most of the original staff have left or returned home. Arnold who used to be a butler in the tower is now in working guest services. Sada who is the head Butler of the tower and after 14.5 years of service is now returning home to his family in India will be sadly missed. thank-you Sada for looking after us for the last 6 years.
Alex is now at the main pool bar always great to see him and to catch up. love the new uniforms yellow shorts and the long red split apron in shades very trendy.

Overall a great return visit to Le royal Meridian I can see the changes the hotel as made in keeping with the recession that hit Dubai. Please Pam and Mike keep looking after your long term repeat guests this year I definitely felt the difference and the hotel certainly is not as generous as times gone by to their repeat customers don't loose site.
But thanks again.

Room Tip: Tower all the way upgrade to a suite if you budget allows and use the club tower facilities Don'...

Out of this world but very expensive. The room was amazing, it had everything in it you could possibly want or need. The hotel was quite quiet so it added to the pleasure. The hotel was quite remote although there was a mall close by but it wasn't overly exciting. We had to travel to go anywhere really nice but the taxi's were very reasonable so that wasn't a problem. The food was really good and the cocktails were to die for. The service was excellent. We were brought cool flannels and fruit by the pool. The private beach was clean (and the sand was HOT!) and the sea was warmer than a bath. Amazing. A holiday of a life time!

Room Tip: We had a room opposite the lift but facing the pool and sea on the first floor but it was amazingly...

Wow , just come back from 5 days at the resort with my wife , the staff were excellent , the gardens impeccable , location excellent , everybody who worked in the hotel seemed to be so proud of their hotel and this shone through. The food and customer service in the restaurants was amazing too , we had lovely meals at the Rhodes restaurant and also the Italian both had a world class feel to them , particular thanks to the guest relations staff for sorting out a booking I required. Many thanks , keep up the good work .

Room Tip: Deluxe sea views great !!

We again visited this hotel in late August 2013, and have again found it to be of the same high standard that we have on previous visits. Staff are very pleasent and always willing to help and give advice whaen needed. The pools are excellent with very good staff service. We stayed in a standard room, of which being 6ft tall i found the twin bed a bit small in length but not width! We did have to inform the staff on reception though that our room had not been cleaned when we returned to it at 3pm,after leaving it at 9.00am of which they were surprised about, and this happened twice, so a bit disappointed about that. Room was cleaned to a high standard when it did get done.
All in all, although it has slipped in the ratings it is still an excellent hotel in a good location to walk around the corner to the shops and restuarants at night on the 'GBR Walk'. Take the time to go down this road and people and car watch as it is a lovely area. We also visited Dubai Mall, using the hotel bus to the Emirates Mall, and then the Metro to the Dubai Mall, of which is very cheap. We then used the Metro back to Dubai Marina, and walked to the Grosvener House hotel, of which is the sister hotel and lays on a free bus back to the Meridian.
Will we go again.......in a few years time and again stay here, and as they they upgrading the hotel presently in the Club tower, it will be an even better place than it is now!

Room Tip: If you have the money go for a Tower Room as they are excellent value, with the extras that you get.

We have just returned today after a wonderful week in Le Royal Meridian. The setting and location were perfect. The staff were just fantastic. Our daughter who is almost 2 was treated like a princess by everybody from the Porters at the entrance through to all the staff at breakfast and at the pool and by the beach. They all knew her name and waved and smiled at her at every oppurtunity. We have stayed at other hotels in Dubai before but this one stands out for us purely because of the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. We will definitely be back!
