Check in was a breeze & friendly. Our room was upgraded due to us celebrating a special occasion.We got a room on the 31st floor.
Bedroom was spacious and beds are extremely comfortable. Bathroom was spacious, however the toilet was SQUASHED into a tiny space. You have to "crab" walk out of toilet. Bathroom amenities were impressive.
The biggest annoyance of the hotel was the construction site opposite. The noise of beeping construction equipment carried on throughout the night and was noisy even on the 31st floor with all doors shut!! Cant imagine what its like on a lower level. The hotel is not on the beach. The construction means you have to walk about a block to get to the beach. The hotel does offer towels, umbrellas and mats for the beach so take advantage of that.
We didn't try any restaurants in the hotel because of the vast array of restaurants on the beach walk. The hotel restaurants weren't reasonably priced.
The hotel is in a good location to visit the close to perfect beaches of Dubai, however far from all the major sites in Dubai. Getting around was the most frustrating, the Sofitel is far from the Metro if you have to walk to the station. However you can use the complimentary shuttles to the malls, which run on a timetable.
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel and the professionalism always associated with the Sofitel brand.
