“if its quiet and 5star this is the place!!!”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

I have stayed at some of the finest hotels around the world, all with different cultures and accomodation quirks that represent the area of the world you are in.
This is the PERFECT chill and relax hotel,if you want the staff to run around after you they will,if you want to be left alone they will.
Staff 5*
rooms 5*
Food 5*
Pool 5*
I visit here just to lose myself for a week and let my body go into meltdown.
I was offered other properties in dubai but felt guilty if i go anywhere else because if a hotel
does nothing wrong but exceeds your expectations(which is not hard for me anyway)then why not return if you are in that country!!!I have the same problem in the maldives and mauritius !!!!!
Looking forward to returning in july because i know my break will start as soon as i walk through reception.

Room Tip: All rooms are first class.

We stayed here over Christmas uncertain as to whether we would see any sign of christmas in the hotel. However on entering reception a Christmas tree was on display and throughout the hotel the theme continued (for anyone thinking of going over xmas time). The service in all areas was second to none nothing was ever too much trouble, every part of the hotel was spotlessly clean, every member of staff always with a smile and if a door was in the vacinity they would rush to open it for you. The food was awesome (afternoon tea was something else !!). You do feel like part of a family hence rather emotional when the time came for us to leave. Unbelievable place cannot wait to go back.

It has come as a bit of a shock to return to normality after spending 10 pampered nights at the Residence.
This was my second time at this part of the Royal Mirage but I have stayed at The Palace and then the Arabian Court many times before.
Everything was thought of from very well trained staff.
I agree with a previous reviewer about Gareth, a pleasant, genuine restaurant manager, Swiss trained and you could tell.
Other staff members that deserve a mention were Noura and Dijo in the restaurant and the best room cleaner of all time Jahirul. I have never stayed in such a well cleaned and looked after hotel room.
The hotel does have some external noise problems with noisy party boats mainly at weekends anchoring just off shore and unfortunately when I was there the World Parachuting Championships were going on and there were noisy helicopters flying over the hotel to drop the competitors at Skydive Dubai.
I have experienced the resort pre Palm construction and even though it is now quite different externally the quality and service in the hotel remains second to none.

Wow what a lovely Hotel, from the drive up to it with the huge montage of riders on their camels
past burning braziers, with drums beating out to announce your arrival.
Atmosphere was fantastic, lovely room , service excellent and good food. We went during their hot season (less expensive) but boy was it hot, up in the 40's, everyone up to their chins in the pool reading books, quite a funny sight. This holiday was a few years ago.

Room Tip: Get one overlooking the sea.

I recently had the pleasure of experiencing the Royal Hammam treatment at this gorgeous spa. I haven't been to morrocco or turkey so i'm not sure how it compares but i was impressed. You leave feeling relaxed and invigorated all at the same time. The scrub is fairly intense but not unpleasant. Following that you are wrapped in a body mask and left to relax after which you receive a full body massage on the hot marble. After the entire treatment you are left to relax in the relaxation room where you can enjoy morroccan mint tea and fresh dates. There is no rush to leave. Would highly recommend to spa novices or experts.

From the very moment one of the many staff greet you, your stress free holiday begins. With a chilled drink and ice cold towels to refresh your face, the reception staff are quick to get you into your room, which is just do spacious, cleans and all in all-superb.
This is our 6th time at the hotel and each time we marvel at the attention the staff give. There are too many names to mention, from the very nice Manager to the housekeeping staff, but Gareth the restaurant manager, was one who really was so charming, calm and so smartly dressed every day, he was a joy to speak to. The guys that look after you around the pool and the beach, can't do enough for you either.
We took friends with us this time who have also stayed at some of the worlds best hotels. We knew they would not be disappointed - and we were right.
Love the breakfast at The Residence, you must try the Spa blend juice which is just amazing!
My husband was disappointed one morning that there was no walnut bread and just mentioned it in passing to one of the staff - the next day it was produced, warm and fresh and each day thereafter .
When eating in The Library in the evening, you are asked in the morning if there is anything Chef can cook for you especially- and he never fails to amaze with his wonderful culinary talent.
As for the afternoon Tea- well, it is just the best afternoon tea I've ever had- anywhere- The Ritz in London has nothing on The Residence Tea!

I think we like it at The Residence because it's so peaceful and you really do feel pampered.
If I had the tiniest criticism ( which really is being terribly picky) I would say, the Cabana's need to have curtains that pull, as the sun comes onto the deck by the afternoon and you are chasing the shade. Also, the metal chairs on the terrace at breakfast, could do with rubber feet- the noise they make when people choose not to pick them up as they leave the table can grate on the nerves- that said, I know our feedback was taken into consideration and we look forward to going back next year to hopefully see that is addressed.

We look forward to returning to see the wonderful staff again, and just total relaxation.
Roll on 2013! :-)
