Westin or Zabeel Saray?

Hi all,

We have stayed at the Westin before and loved it. I see that Zabeel Saray has fantastic reviews and just wondering what the beach is like compared to the beach at the Westin.

The Westin seems to have rocketed in price don't know why so Zabeel Saray looks like a good option. Are rooms and grounds as nice?

The beach at the JZS faces into the palm so no open views but views of the plam fronds and the buildings on them. The beach is more pebbly and rocky in places because it is not natural.

It is a beautiful hotel but is not as convenient for other things in Dubai as the Westin is. For a start you have a 20 minute cab ride and fare to pay before even reaching the mainland as the JZS is at the far end of the breakwater surrounding the palm.

Lovely resort hotel but not as convenient as the Westin would sum it up for me.
