Stayed for a 4 night stay on a personal recommendation. The place feels very corporate and contemporary with the requisite large atrium, artworks etc. all in place. Very nice rooms (we were upgraded to a suite) with lovely views over Jumeirah. We used the Exec Lounge for breakfast which was always very good and never crowded. We had drinks in the Plantation Lounge, again nice and not busy (special thanks to Samia, the waitress who always looked after us so well...). The Irish Bar was very popular with a great choice of tap beers - a great place to be with a crowd but not perhaps on your own or as a couple. Didn't eat in the French or Italian restaurants so am unable to comment other than I never ever saw anybody in the Italian restaurant. The hotel is situated across a road and building site from the beach which is all public. The downside for us was that whilst the hotel wasn't very busy, the pool area always was. That's because the space is relatively small, there are not enough loungers and those that remain are on top of each other. This for us, let the whole place down bearing in mind we went for a sun break. If there was a reason not to go back, this was it. A shame really, as we liked most other aspects of the place.
