“Colourful concept !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Visited this property 3 weeks ago. The property is just across my home. I came back from India after a tiring business trip and discovered my husband gave me a surprise getaway to the ocean view Hotel. He wanted me to take a break and relax. I am a person who likes colours....bright and fresh...and the rooms at ocean view have it ! The interiors are unique. Rooms are very well lit, and furniture has nice aqua colour touch on it which makes u feel fresh like the blue waters of the ocean. Rooms are spacious with a balcony which gives u wonderful sea view. But u will also have to bear with the view of the construction site of the mall built at JBR. All rooms are nonsmoking, but u can smoke in the balcony. Service is quick in spite of heavy foot fall of the hotel. Bed is nice but pillows are very uncomfortable. They small and so soft that even 3 at a time won't help and they make your neck ache.
The hotel is a chain of Jabel Ali Golf resort...so you have free Access to the private beach there. There are lots of activities you can do there like horse riding, water sports, etc. they have a diving and shooting club as well. All in all it was a very good experiance.

Room Tip: Higher floor with ocean view

Dear Nehal B,

Thank you for your sharing your feedback on TripAdvisor following your recent stay at Ocean View Hotel.

It was lovely to read about your impressions about the hotel and the rooms which you found to be large with a lovely balcony and wonderful sea views. I also appreciated your feedback on our interior design and furniture, which you have kindly mentioned was unique with nice touch of colours. I was also pleased to read that you had a chance to visit our sister property Jebel Ali Beach Hotel which you enjoyed the private beach and activities.

You have mentioned in regards to the construction projects around the hotel’s vicinity, which was unfortunately beyond our control. I would like to apologise if it detracted from what was otherwise a very enjoyable stay.

I have also further noted your comments with regards to the pillow which was not to your expectations, and I am pleased to inform you that we do have a selection of pillow’s, which are available upon request. Please accept my sincere apologies if this information was not communicated to you whilst staying with us, and rest assured that your comments have been shared with the Executive Housekeeper.

Once again, I would like to thank you for taking the time to post your review on TripAdvisor, and we hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Ocean View Hotel in the future.


Yours sincerely,

Marc Voller

From the moment we arrived at the hotel and our luggage was taken to our rooms and until the moment we left six nights after everything was absolutely marvelous! The staff are very friendly and they all speak english very well .The hotel is 5 min walk from the public beach which is very good not very crowded the hotel offer free towels and umbrellas for the beach.The Jumeirah Walk has so many restaurants to choose from and the prices are reasonable.The hotel offers free shuttle to many interest points in Dubai and even to their sister hotel Jebel Ali resort.The rooms are very big and absolutely beautiful ,they deserve a 5 star rating from my point of view. Choose this hotel if you want to have an excellent stay in Dubai!

Room Tip: Higher floors are very quiet even with the constructions near the hotel!

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. It was the cheapest hotel I found in the Dubai Marina. It's at the southern end of the Marina. Although taxis and people don't know about it, it's quite easy to find and you can reach it in 2 minutes from the main highway.

Some problems:
- They are doing works in front of the hotel. But it's like this in all the Marina...
- They have a private beach, 30 minutes away by car. It's between the abandoned Jebel Ali Palm and the port. It's really the beach of another resort and it's not nice, you can't see the horizon from there because it's surrounded by the palm and the port. There are lots of algas. There are no umbrellas in the sand, but there are in the grass. They offer a free transfer between the beach and the hotel, but with few frequency.
- There were some music from the hotel lounges.

I liked the views from it, although the works. The swimming pool is nice and they do a very good chicken sandwich in the swimming pool bar.

Prices are very good, not sure if it was an offer, but they say the rooms are quite expensive.

Please allow me to personally thank you for your positive comments about the hotel, which you found to be great value for money, as well as the food that you enjoyed at our pool bar.

You have mentioned about some noise disturbance which you experienced due to the construction projects around the hotel’s vicinity, which was unfortunately beyond our control. I would like to apologise if it detracted from what was otherwise a very enjoyable stay.

2 adults 1 child stayed here for a night recently, I had read the hotel has been renovated recently. Was highly impressed with the hotel on entering from the valet through the checkin process. Rooms very clean, excellent amenities, impressive bathroom with Elemis products, good customer service.... Pool area was good also, free towels to use and a beach kit was also offered. The sun is not on the pool all day due to the surround buildings, this did not cause a problem. I would suggest they mark out the steps in the pool as they are not very well marked, be careful. We had breakfast in the 24/7 cafe downstairs which had a good selection. Please note there is construction opposite, a mall I believe, although we did not hear anything whilst in the room it is a bit of an eye sore. Saying that there is construction all over Dubai. We would certainly recommend staying here, we shall return

We just got back from a week break at the Ocean View Hotel and it was amazing! Just fantastic! This hotel is definately in the higher end scale of 4*. The food, hospitality and welcome we got from the hotel was so warming.

Its on one end of The Walk which is perfect for evening strolls. The beach is a stone throw away, the pool always has the sun shining. The metro is also near by and is extremely easy to use with only 2 lines! Can't go wrong.

If I had to nit-pick something, that would be that the pillows were quite small, more square than rectangle and were a bit lifeless, however we did speak to housekeeping about his and were given some new pillows, however these still were not hard enough.

Room Tip: Yes there is a construction site outside, yes the club does get a bit loud but overall the pros defi...

This is a modern chic hotel, the rooms have a clean and modern feel and offer comfortable yet affordable accommodation in Dubai within close proximity of the beach. The choice and qualiy of the breakfast was superb and the free parking and valet service an added bonus.
