Just returned from 6 days at this hotel. Wouldn't say disappointed because you get what you pay for, but I wish we'd researched the location a bit more thoroughly.
If Dubai has a less 'polished' side of town then this is it. One side of the road is a dock yard. The next is a large empty plot of sand.
The beach is not walking distance unless you're up for a workout. There are no decent restaurants nearby unless you're into greasy style cafes (with no aircon)
Luckily taxis are easy to come by. But one tip is NEVER use the hotel taxis. They are double the price of the metered cabs. Just walk out of the hotel and flag one down yourself (example is hotel taxi charged us 30 dirhams to jumeriah beach park. Metered cab was 14 for the same journey)
All in all I wouldn't stay here again. Nothing to do with the hotel itself its purely the location.
