“JBH, Just Wonderful !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2008

My husband, 13 year old daughter and I have just returned from 7 days at the world famous Jumeirah beach hotel. We had heard a lot about this hotel from various friends over the years and had our own expectations but these were truly surpassed when we arrived. We opted for the premium leisure package which offers a few extra " perks" which we thought were worth the extra cost. We were collected personally immediately on arrival and taken to the baggage reclaim where our passports were taken and we were whisked through the fast track immigration at the airport. A luxury Audi greeted us complete with cold towels, a huge relief given the extreme humidity outside. We arrived at the hotel which was all lit up like something out of a picture book. We were taken to the Premium leisure guest entrance and met with more cold towels and a drink of juice to cool us down. we were taken personally to our room ( huge, luxurious with every possible amenity ) and told all about the hotel and our luggage was already waiting in our room. When we opened the curtains in the morning there was a fabulous view complete with the Burj Al Arabe which was almost within touching distance. The staff could not do more for you and were always polite, friendly and helpful no matter when you encountered them. We chose a caribbean cruise last year and I thought that was pure luxury but our stay at the JBH surpassed the cruise and I never thought that anything could come close. We will definitely travel again to the JBH which had all the amenities we could want, pools, wild wadi water park, excellent food and restaurants, buggies to shuttle you around the Jumeirah Madinat complex and complimentary shuttle buses to the Mall of the Emirates shopping Mall. I cannot compliment this hotel enough and even the shock of the soaring temperatures and high humidity during July could not put me off going back there again. Many of the other guests we spoke to had been many times to the JBH and that is testament to the quality of this hotel.

What a fantastic hotel & experience.

Stayed 20th-27th june.

Arrived at hotel 8am, (check not till 2pm) you are greeted with an orange juice. The hotel give's early arrivals use of one of the restaurants where complementary continental breakfast is laid on. You can also use changing facilities & use pools etc.

After a long day, really wanted to get into room, it was not ready till 2.20pm so we were given a complementary meal voucher for the trouble which was a nice touch.

We went to a different restaurant within the hotel every night (bar one) and they were all great.

The rooms are great, we had ocean view room (they all ocean view) large, clean great view's fantastic bathrooms.

Pools all good (5 pools use of 3 with standard booking) with great service. Guys come round 3 times a day giving out ice lolly's & another guy comes round spraying you with ice cold water on sunbeds. Food & drink brought to your sunbeds if you require, bottles of water in ice buckets a nice touch. If you eat round pool it can be a little pricey (the fantastic breakfast saw us through to dinner) we had plate of chips once & was £6.

Choice of two restaurants for breakfast one in hotel one outside, we used the restaurant outside, great service great food great choice.

Jumeirah beach residents get free access to wild wadi (£25 entry otherwise) we went once, it was ok but if id paid to get in i think i would have been dissapointed, the rides we went on were good but didnt think there was much choice compared to say florida water parks.

We had a look in the burj which was opulant to say the least. Again residents of the jumeriah get in for free (i think there is a charge otherwise) You have to book a time slot with the jumeriah concierge or if you go after 11pm you can go without a booking.

There is a dive centre on site, went for one dive. Was nice to do but compared to other countries was not the best but i enjoed it.

Went on a dune buggy excursion into dessert, was very good & done very professionaly.

We have been to some top hotels round the world, the jumeriah is right up there with them. The staff treat you like royalty.

I would recommend to anyone & will be going back.

ABsolutely 100% recomment this hotel. Everything about it is fantastic...the rooms, the views, the staff, the service, the choice of bars and restaurants, the facilities, the location...need i go on...We paid a little extra to go for the the Club Executive room and i highly recommend this, its definately worth it. Free breakfast with huge selection in a number of different restaurants, free tea/coffee/juices all day in the executive lounge which is on the 24th floor and has stunning views and beautiful decor not to mention such helpful staff. Plus you get to go up to that floor to check in and are made to feel like a "VIP" the minute you go in. There is also free afternoon tea from 3pm-5pm with happy hour from 5pm-7pm i.e.free alcoholic drinks during this time...cocktail and chamagne galore...oh did i mention the canapes...to die for!! Then you can move onto a more relaxed bar downstairs with pool table for an additional 1hour of free drinks. After that there is free selection of cheeses and coffee. You also get to use the club executive pool and are transported about in a buggy...although its not far to walk. At the pool you are given free ice lollies all day, free water spray, lovely cold towels, ice buckets and little iced fruit shots to drink. Staff, service and pool attendants are fab. There are 7 lifeguards around this 1 pool. The pool is right on the beach and has stunning views of the burj Al Arab. I honestly cannot speak highly enough about this fab hotel. I will go back and certainly recommend it to people. WOrth the extra money.

  • Liked — everything the club executive package offered
  • Disliked — too much choice...decisions, decisions!

Well well well....where do i start?? We had read previous reviews on here and were quite impressed with what we read. We arrived at Dubai intenational airport (which is lovely) and was greeted by the Company we booked with where a private car awaited. The driver then took us to the resort which we were just overwhelmed to see, the hotel is simply stunning and having being night time was all lit up. We were greeted by hotel staff who offered orange staff and cold towels while our luggage was being taken care of. We were shown around our room by one of the staff and the luggage was brought up to us. Our room was out of this world and had a clear view of the Burj. The only problem here is we asked for a double bed but had two singles pushed together which some nights had a small gap in the middle but extremely soft! The choice for breakfast was fantastic, everything and anything. There are plenty of resturants in the hotel but be careful of dress codes for the night we first arrived we met a couple who were turned away from one for wearing shorts. As for things to do in the day you coudln't go wrong, in the 6 days we were there we managed to fit in Scuba Diving, Speedboat around the palm, City Tour, Desert Safari, Wild Wadi, Trip to the Burj and two trips to mall of the Emirates all of which can be booked from the Hotel. The free entry to Wild Wadi is very convienient and the buggy's take you anywhere you wish to go down the Jumeirah strip. The shuttle bus to the Mall is also very useful and is free and theres also a bus that takes you on trips to the Burj for no extra charge but be careful of dress code here. There was fresh fruit every day along with a newspaper and newsletter and they tidy your room twice a day, the second time to close your curtains and get your slippers ready!!! ooo and chocolates on your bed! You had the option to go on a segway at a charge which my boyfriend absolutly loved. At the pool they handed out ice lollies and sprayed you with cold water. The pool bar is great too. This place is just fantastic and will recommend it to all ages. We are planning on returning to the same hotel next year. Can't wait!

We arrived at 2am and there were a lot of people in around. This hotel has a large number of workers to cater to you.

The rooms were amazing. HUGE and very comfortable. The bathroom was HUGE. The view of the Burj al Arab is amazing!

We never ate at the hotel so cannot comment on the restaurants, however there is a daily fruit basket delivered to your room. We LOVE fruits so pigged out. We asked for more and they said it would be brought up but it never came.. That is my only complaint..Well, the pool water is a little warm, but considering it's 50 F outside, I can imagine how difficult it would be to keep the temp down... The water in the gulf is even warmer. Yuk.. It was hard to cool off... There are even hot tubs!?! Weirder: People USED THEM! lol

There were workers ready as soon as you get to the pool to lay out your HUGE beach towels on your chair. They also came around with water, spray and pineapple flavoured popsicles.

The staff was friendly

Security is high here (everytime you went somewhere they ask you your name and room number)

Tips: FREE access to Wild Wadi Water Park which is attached and Free accress to the Burj al Arab during specified hours.

My Husband and I spent 11 days in the Jumeirah Beach in June. Having read many reviews prior to our trip I was unsure of what to expect. We arrived at the Hotel at about 9.20am having taken an overnight flight. Obviously very tired and hot when we arrived we were met in reception by a very friendly girl who gave us fresh orange juice and cold face cloths, which we accepted gladly. Our check in was very efficient and because we were early our room was not ready. We were escorted to the breakfast room for a complimentary breakfast and given a mobile phone to be contacted when our room was ready for us.Our room was on the 5th floor (525) with fantastic views of the pool area, beach and the Burj. The room was extremely spacious, very clean and had a great bathroom. Our room was cleaned everyday (fresh bed linen and towels daily) and the the turn down service in the evening is a nice touch. Overall we found the hotel to be excellent. The breakfast was superb. We ate mostly in Latitude and the choice is amazing. The omlettes are really good. If you are watching the calories stay away from the pastry counter with it's huge choice of goodies !! We found the staff to be courtious and helpful at all times. Regardless of how busy they were if you had a query it was handled efficiently and professionally. There is a great choice of restaurants in the hotel. The Argentian restaurant on the 25th floor is a must if you like your steaks. We had a superb meal and as it was my birthday they surprised me with a cake and a red rose and sang happy birthday to me in Spanish and English. It was just lovely. There is a wonderful Chinese restaurant in the next hotel (the Mina Salam). Food is wonderful and lovely surroundings. The Meat Co also have a restaurant there and we had eaten in this restaurant in South Africa. We were not impressed with the branch in Dubai as we found the service was not up to the standard we had come to expect and the price was over the top for what we got. There are lots of trips that can be booked but if you only want to do one, the Desert Safari in the 4x4 Jeeps is the one to choose. Very exciting racing over the dunes and then having a BBQ in the desert at night. Well worth it. The best shopping Mall for choice and value is Deira City Mall. Cheaper than Emerates by far. Overall I could not find fault with The Jumeirah Beach. The level of customer service is fantastic, staff are superbly efficient and friendly and it is a great place to stay. From the staff that meet and greet at the door to the pool and beach staff they are all totally professional and friendly above and beyond the call of duty. If I was to find any fault it would be with the some of the guests who like to think they have money and feel they can be rude to staff just because they are a paying guest. It is a shame that money can breed arrogance and bad manners. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anybody looking for a relaxing pool/beach holiday in comfortable and luxurious surroundings. We will be back.
PS The Burj is totally over rated !!!

  • Liked — Bedrooms were fantastic, pool area was superb and staff were brilliant.
  • Disliked — No problem with accommodation just with arrogant, rude guests who do not know what good manners are
