I've just recently returned from a 5 night stay at the Hyatt Regency Dubai. I was sceptical about booking it due to its location however having read the fantastic reviews it received on Trip Advisor and it's overall ranking I was confident I had picked a good hotel. Unfortunately I would not recommend this hotel to holiday goers, it's simply an ok business hotel.
The rooms are clean and functional, however nothing luxurious for a 5 star. The food in the restaurants was ok however very expensive. The main thing that really put me off this hotel was the inability to sunbathe by the pool after 1pm. The location of the pool is such that at 1pm the sun gets blocked behind the hotel building and you no longer have any sun. There is a really low rate sun deck around the front which if you don't have an aeroplane flying overhead your sure to be deafened by all the construction work in the front! The covers on the sun loungers were dirty and there was nobody facilitating this area at all.
The food at the pool side bar was deplorable. I ordered a club sandwich with chips the first day, took one bite and left the lot. I'm not quite sure how a sandwich could be so bad; but it was! And as for the chips... They tasted liked they'd been cooked in chip fat that hadn't been changed since they opened the hotel overall the standard was just awful.
If you are planning a visit to Dubai for pleasure or with your family, do not book this hotel.
