“Good stuff and great Beach location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

We have been at this hotel many times. The hotel is old but they try to keep it clean and in good condition. The Beach is perfect, just outside of the hotel. Only negative things is that the Russian people go to reserve the places to the beach at 6 o`clock in the morning!!
The breakfast is super. Fresh fruits and vegetables is available. Also omelet and pancake.
stuff is ok and very polite.
The foto of the hotel is incorrect.

This is a reasonably priced hotel, with comfort and service adequate to the price, away from cosmpolitan and more expensive Dubai, in more conservative Sharjah. So be prepared not to have any alcohol, even no beer, to be asked not walk inside the hotel in swim suit when going to the beach, etc. The place is quiet with no entertainment, suitable more for families with children. We liked mostly eating outside, tables are on the grass with a nice beach view. Sea is shallow, good for children. Complimentary bus to Dubai twice a day, but usually full. Nevertheless taxi is very reasonably priced. Go early in the morning to avoid traffic.

The Internet is so SLOW... not worth it...The service overall is poor. But it is on the beach, and it is nice during the day, but at night there is noting nearby.... The free shuttle bus only runs two times a day and is always full...

Staff will monitor you, but will not monitor the cleanliness. Dirty beach, on the sides of the beach - barbed wire. Boring sea. The room was not cleaned on the last day of stay. Food in restoran was monotonous, but nourishing.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms

I stayed many times at this hotel for business and found it reasonably pleasant. It is a beach hotel about 20km from Dubai area and the traffic can be terrible so please do not stay here with the intent of shopping or doing business in Dubai. One big reminder: Sharjah is DRY: No Liquor! so don't expect any bar or drinking places in hotel for romantic evenings. Hotel is a 2 storey block with rooms either facing the road or the pool/sea area and the seaview rooms obviously cost more. There are two restaurants and both facing the sea, one is for day time buffet for clients in beach wear. The other one is quite nicely furnished with seaview so it can be quite romantic for the couple who loves beach holidays because tables have good view of hotel private beach. Food quality is good by Sharjah standard but average by Dubai standard. If you get tired of eating in hotel, then just walk 500yards towards the aquarium roundabout where a Lebanese restaurant by the name of Sanobar specialises in seafood fresh and grilled simply on their outdoor BBQ.

Rooms are slightly small but should be OK for short holiday for a couple, cramp for family with baby or young children to share room. Bathrooms are dated but clean and free of craked tiles and usual basic toiletries are supplied. Rooms have fridge with soft drinks and basic snacks but NOT minibar because Sharjah is DRY! No tea/coffee facilities in room but TV should have sufficient channels to keep you busy. The property has just been renovated a couple years back so much brighter than when I first stayed there in 2007. The common area feels spacious and well proportioned so this place is quite good value for money compared to similar hotels in town. The hotel also provides free shuttle bus services for shopping in Sharjah town centre as well as Deira in Dubai area. This hotel is mainly used by eastern European families who seek winter sun so it is usually quite deserted in the summer months when the beach temperatures hit 40 degrees and above. I will stay here again because it is convenient and pleasant for business, although their sister hotel across the road called Premier Inn actually has free WIFI. The biggest downside of Lou Lou'a Beach Hotel is the fact that using internet cost some USD10+ per day!

Extremely good service and food. Perfect hotel for people who want to have a rest in a quiet place. A lot of ... well...not that nice Russians, but u can leave with that. Once again.. really good service for resonable money. Really good place to start al your trips in Dubai... city centre is only 20 minutes away by hotel bus or (really cheap) taxi.

Was there for 4 nights on a business trip, its on the beach in a lovely setting.

The food for evening meal really is excellent - had worse food in 2 star restaurants. Its served as a buffet so there is no pretension, but it is hot, fresh and top notch.

The beach is in good order and very clean indeed - and the staff are very pleasant and passionate about keep the beach clean and the pool in good order

Its not a 5 star Dubai hotel - and Sharjah is dry so no alcohol - in other words after hours there is nothing to do. That being said it doesn't charge Dubai prices so you pays your money and takes your choice.

My BIG grumble is they are obsessed with Towels to the point of psychosis. The beach towels are truly MANKY - old and worn out - yet you get given a voucher when you arrive, monitored when you go to the pool and interrogated for the towel when you leave the pool area. When I checked out the guy on the desk almost didn't give me my passport back because I left the towel voucher in the room. Get a life!!

May stop there again because it is good value for money - but if you mess with there towels you could be in trouble
