It may not be the nicest hotel... it may not even be up to your regular standards, but the staff are very pleasant and the pool is big with a swim up bar and play equipment for the kids within meters of the water. We spent 2 nights in a standard room with 2 kids, and despite the loud music from the Blue Marlin Ibiza Beach Club, the kids slept well and we had a great trip. Don't expect a 5 star Dubai hotel. This is a cheaper getaway that is relatively close to the city (about 30 minutes). Rooms are clean. Lots of play space outside for kids. Food is decent. And if you are into the club scene, the Marlin easily stands up to the best Dubai clubs on Thursday and Friday nights. Anyone who is trash-talking this hotel either had way too high expectations or perhaps had the wrong attitude. I'll be returning with my family soon.

Stayed for a few nights. Untidy, rude staff, even ruder management. Avoid like the plague.

There is a night club within walking distance but with no entry for hotel residents. Management were unhelpful and barely spoke English. Room was in a ramshackle state with "lovestains?" on the carpet and curtains. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.

pros: large rooms, clean, free large baby cot, very delicious food (especially the pineapple salad), helpful staff, large playing areas (greeneries and playground for kids)

cons: not handicap path and no elevator (expect to go down to the restaurant), location (somehow deserted), there is only one restaurant and one cafe in the resort, beach was closed till 2pm, loud party on weekends, connecting doors are not sound proof.

Room Tip: dont book this hotel unless you get an offer. staying there without an offer will oblige you to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at the resort, and you will end up paying more than what most 5 star hotels do.

We were a group of girls going to the Golden Tulip chalets for a weekend getaway. We bought a deal from a local website and although our perks included an early check-in, we were told that the rooms were not available until 3pm (regular check in time is 2pm). Despite requesting for adjacent rooms (and being assured that this would be arranged) it came as a rude shock to us that the two rooms booked were far apart. The manager was extremely rude and unprofessional and refused to entertain any requests. The rooms were quite dated and one of the rooms wasnt en-suite and had a common passageway with a connecting room used by a permanent resident. The only saving grace was the beach and the pool even though the pool bar service was extremely poor. In all a very disappointing experience!

Room Tip: Choose a chalet that is NOT next to a permanent resident and ensure its ensuite.

This is certainly not a great property by Golden Tulip. There was a typical paint like smell coming from the rooms and a kind-of-stink from the corridor carpets. Some of the electrical switches were broken, and there was no bulb in one of the night lamps.

We were a group of 2 couples. When we tried to open the connecting door between two rooms, large cockroach came out indicating that the rooms are not serviced properly by the staff.

Pool opens at 9am and closes at 7pm; however this is not a suitable timing in summers. They need to open it early morning and have it open for late night swim as well.

Staff at reception did not have any clue about jet ski rentals (prices, timings).

The only saving grace for our stay was the food. Food was of good quality; however there were no quick bites available in the room.
