Westin or Ritz Carlton, which would you choose and why ?

Trying to decide on Westin or Ritz Carlton for 6 nights?

We are going as a couple during Ramadan 2017.

Both are showing half board options and are approx same price.

Which has the nicest standard rooms?

Which has nicest grounds / pool area?

Which hotel has the best WOW factor?

Which is the quietest, we would prefer quiet rather than lots of kids etc?

Both have private beach but Westin has the noisiest beach however Ritz has public beach right alongside.

Which would you choose and why ?

thanks

Ritz Carlton for me but it is my favourite beach hotel and so I might be a bit biased.

I'd opt for RC also. I've stayed in The Westin and really enjoyed it, it has a beautiful lobby and large rooms but I think RC is overall a better hotel

I love pool area at RC whereas Westin main pool is a bit disappointing

Also aside from the hotel itself the area around RC is better as you have more within direct walking distance

Whilst I haven't stayed at the Westin, I have visited and I have stayed at the Ritz several times. I prefer the decor and ambiance at the Ritz and would always chose it over the Westin. As Hannah above also states, you're also directly at the start of The Walk with immediate access to a variety of places to eat and drink.

Westin is larger and busier.

IIRC, no major construction next to the Westin but there may be works next to the RC. If you are looking at moving around in Dubai, the Westin is much better located as it is just outside the Marina with closer access to the main highway, will save you 15 minutes each time when leaving and returning to your hotel

Another vote for the Ritz, great hotel with nice grounds and several pools. If you are looking at club access rooms the lounge at the Ritz is also very good.
