I stayed during my latest business travel in this hotel.
The hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms are relatively big and very well designed. Beds are comfortable, the room was clean throughout.
Mineral water and free Wifi are provided. The breakfast selection is excellent.
I have the impression that this hotel mostly available with good rates and provides in my opinion better value for money than the Hilton (which offers 80ies style) or the Ritz-Carlton (double the price).
As a (minor) negative I would mention that the pool area is small (compared to Jumeirah's beach hotels) and therefore not suitable if you travel with children. Like last year, no early check-in was provided, so prepare to change in the fitness club if you arrive early and like to go to the pool. You will not have direct beach access.
In summary, I can recommend this hotel especially for business travel - if you come with your family or for a special occasion with your wife/ girl friend you may prefer hotels with a bigger pool area (like the Ritz or the Jumeirah beach hotel) but these come with a significant higher price.
