“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Just home from a week at Le Meridien. Never been to UAE before, chose this hotel due to good TA reviews and because it is not in Dubai. Loved it. All the normal stuff you'd expect topped off with the best staff we've come across in a large hotel. Nothing was too much trouble - and you genuinely felt they meant it. Made our daughter's birthday extra special from start to finish (birthday message written on the beach, balloons on her sun lounger etc). Facilities for children are great (drop-in kids club a cool idea that works well), lifeguards around the pool/at the beach reassuring and friendly. Facilities for grown-ups equally good, everywhere is sparkly clean and the pillows just divine. We had a Royal Club room, completely fine. Would probably go for a superior room next time simply because we didn't make full use of afternoon tea etc because we were lounging in the sun. Actually, I don't want to say too much more in case everyone starts flocking to our new-found favourite holiday destination! Only negative comment would be the towel-out-before-breakfast brigade. We struggled to get a sun bed one day whilst many sat empty for hours. Where were these invisible sun worshippers? Overall a really friendly, welcoming hotel.

Stayed here for 9 nights in Feb with my wife

We booked with Virgin on a Dine around all inclusive

The rooms are spacious and spotless the grounds are lovely and well maintained and the beach is lovely, with a brisk 30 minute walk either side of the hotel of more beach.

The staff at this hotel can only be described as amazing and they did everything in their power to make you feel special without being overpowering or intrusive.
I have to mention a few who we felt helped our experience be extra special

Mina on reception who gave us a great first impression after a sleepless overnight flight.

Muhtu who I had great early morning chats with on the beach, genuinely lovely man.

Rajesh from the beach bar whose extra mile attitude makes him stand out.

Miriam from the Indian restaurant who's service and knowledge made each meal special

Finally Bijeta Italian restaurant who's personality is infectious and has without doubt the best customer service I have ever experienced that includes several uk fine dining restaurants and hotels.

The food is superb in all of the restaurants and so much choice

I think you might get the fact I had an amazing holiday, all I can say to finish is I strongly recommend this hotel and will be returning.

Fujairah in general is beautiful, like Canada's Muskoka. We went for two nights in January. The water was beautiful, the pool warm, the beach well groomed (my son wants to be a 'sand groomer' when he grows up) and the hotel at this time was not crowded. Our wish was to relax and enjoy the sun. Many watersports were available but I know that you can get them cheaper down the road at private areas or use a Groupon for activities such as snorkeling and deep sea fishing. The Sheesha was unlimited, the belly dancing was just OK, and the food was good. The evening included a kids' club which entertained the little ones, but if you want you can avoid that. The rooms were located close to the beach no matter what room you get, they are all good. The staff at this hotel were very friendly and helpful. Service is similar to everywhere else in the UAE (slow to get the cheque) but we are learning that it isn't uncommon for people to eat for a very very very very long time. ha ha. We Canadians are used to getting our bills and being ushered out.

We, my daughter, wife and myself had a short break at this property for two nights and three days. This was our second visit to this resort. Rooms are well maintained but there is definitely room for improvement although i did not have any complains rooms are well maintained. Breakfast is good and pasta/pizza at Italian restaurant is yummy.. The views from room are breath taking and pool is amazing. All rooms face the sea. You can see the sea as far a you can see. The beach is now restricted small area as it is now shared with other resorts right next to this property. Life guards at the pool and beach are always available. Will go back to this resort again. Overall a great experience. I would recommend this to all of you.

Room Tip: All rooms face the sea but i think corner rooms look better

Spent a three night break here and was suitably impressed.

We opted for the Royal Club package which, although a little more expensive, included breakfast, afternoon tea, drinks between 1900-2100 and kid's discount on a la carte menus.It also got us a room on the 17th floor with great views out to sea and over the gardens and pool.

The room itself was extremely spacious with a (super?) king size bed and plenty of room for a single bed (for which there was no additional charge). Bathroom was large with separate bath and shower. I felt the room could be a bit more inspiring decor wise, falling as it did between contemporary and traditional.

All three meals we had were excellent and reasonably priced (against Dubai standards). We ate in Swaad (Indian), Taste (Thai) and Gonu (grill) and the resort boasts a great wine list.

The staff are exceptionally nice, although service in the bar was a bit patchy.

Pool area was very clean with plenty of loungers available.

Don't think it will be too long before we revisit for another weekend

This hotel is of a lovely standard the rooms are superb extremely comfortable beds which is very often difficult to find in hotels. The staff are extremely helpful and the food in all the restaurants was very nice. the only downside to this hotel is the distance to the hotel from the airport which took over an hour and half by taxi and there is nothing in the area if you want to leave the hotel. We were there for a week and were looking for a relaxing break by the pool so it suited our needs in this way. The weather, which obviously doesnt reflect on the hotel at all, but just adding as it was December it wasnt as hot as id expected and went cool around 4pm.

Room Tip: Not many of the rooms have a balcony so we did upgrade at reception on arrival to have a terrace whi...

an interesting location however a fantastic hotel, we had a bit of late 70s feel on design and furniture however it isn't that old and is well maintained. great with kids, we loved the open air parrot "cage" in the garden, the kids activity and the kids club. we had a low floor sea view room, very big and comfortable, roof top bar has great entertainment with belly dancer. the staff is fantastic, everybody is smiling, friendly and helpful, remembered us everywhere on the 2nd day already, we had a wonderful time, five out of five. small issues - if you want to book a restaurant - rather talk to someone than trying to call, nobody ever answered the call. parking isn't thecbest - our car was parked under a tree - i guess - was returned to us 4 days after we arrived covered by bird poop and leaves. the onsite dive center was overbooked and they bumped us to next day without actually checking if it was okay with us.
these were all minor issues, overall the hotel staff made the difference, as i mentioned all looked happy and was very welcoming, we'd not hesitate to return
