Hi, we arrived for our 10 nights stay on 2nd June and was a bit worried about all the bad reviews, my boyfriend said to the receptionist we had read bad reviews and did not want to be in a room where we would hear nothing but music all night, and it was my first time to Dubai and wanted it to be special, as he has been there many times about 15 in the past but never this Hotel. Anyway the receptionist said he has upgraded us to a Garden room Suite with a Balcony, we were taken to the room on a buggy, and it was at the end of the garden and up some stairs, outside the room was a pile of cement which I was not impressed with, anyway we got into the room and it was ok, a nice size but very tired and the balcony could do with a lick of paint. We went to bed and all I could hear was the nightclub, I eventually got off to sleep but in the morning my Boyfriend was not happy at all he said he'd been kept awake all night with the music and there was a building site next to the hotel and load banging through the night as I presume they work through the night. Off to Reception we went and was told they were full and we would have to come back after 11am, we said we wanted some answers after breakfast not 11am, we went back to reception and I left my Boyfriend to it, he asked to speak to the Manager and explained it was not like a 5 star hotel that he was used to in Dubai and would not be recommending this hotel and would never stay here again, in the end they showed us to a Tower room on floor 22, which we was pleasantly surprised, no balcony but did not need one anyway, did have a great view of the beach too. There is a Nightclub also on the 25th floor and a couple of nights we heard this music but it was not that bad that we could not get to sleep, we did actually sleep very well in this room for our stay and the room was a nice size and so much better than the garden room.
Breakfast em well no Bacon for the entire 10 days and when we asked they said they would speak to the chef but it never appeared, breakfast was ok, but very samey everyday, could of been better in our opinion, and not enough staff in there, felt sorry for them they are very over worked.
Pool - em one main pool and on our first day it was hunt the sunbed, the Hotel is full of Russians and very much geared to them too, we found the pool to be busy every day and towels put on beds first thing in the morning an no one there, and lots of Children in the pool and around the pool, you would think a hotel of this size would have additional pool in the garden after all plenty of space for it (I know there is a small pool on level 3, but not many beds around and no umberellas)
Overall - would we stay at this hotel again - NO it was ok but the Meridian next door is so much nicer and quieter I sometimes felt like I was in Europe at the pool.
The weather in Dubai is fab though and could not fault it.
