Stayed 6 nights in a Club Leisure room in February 2012 and found the place to be absolutely faultless. Dedicated Club check-in in on the club floor with amazing sea and Burj al Arab views. Efficient check in process although we felt slightly pressured into upgrading (at additional cost) as the paperwork had already been completed. We arrived at 10am and were able to check in immediately which was a bonus.
Huge room with large balcony overlooking the sea and Burj al Arab, big bathroom with double shower and bath. Massive bed facing out to the balcony, so a lovely view to wake up to every morning.
The resort is quieter than its sister resort Jumeirah Beach Hotel; the pool was always quiet with plenty of sunbeds. However you can walk to the Jumeirah Beach and share its facilities if you wish. You can also take a nice stroll through the complex (this hotel is part of a huge complex with two other hotels and a souk) - despite the size of the complex it does however always feel tranquil.
Excellent service in the Club Lounge - would highly recommend for breakfast, afternoon tea, and happy hour 6-8pm each night. We drank Mercier champagne every night which the diligent staff endlessly topped up.
Our deal included free half board which is a significant saving on what you would otherwise spend in restaurants on the complex. That said, the food selection (17 various a la carte restaurants to select from) and quality was outstanding. We particularly liked Jambase and Al Hambra.
Yes, it's expensive, but one of the most luxurious hotels I have stayed in, and given all the food and drink that was included, plus the quality of the service, it was actually very good value.
Upgrade to a Club room but resist the upselling! Club room also includes return airport transfers in...
