I have to admit I was slightly concerned about the hotel after reading some of the reviews, however I had nothing to worry about! From being greeted by a smiling member of staff and being picked up at the airport in a Lexus to leaving the hotel in a Mercedes the whole trip was effortless.
We arrived at the hotel to smiling staff who bent over backwards to make us feel welcome. We couldn't check in at the executive lounge due to a change over in staff so the staff on reception checked us in quickly and efficiently.
Our room was pleasantly decorated with rose petals on the bed, we went for an executive room with lounge access and it is well worth it. We had a lovely room with a view of both the marina on the side and the beach in front. A large bathroom, tv and bed as well as a sitting area guaranteed we were comfortable. Whilst there is noise from the main road and some construction work it doesn't impact on your holiday or quality of sleep.
The executive lounge is worth the upgrade. It's got a beautiful balcony overlooking the whole of jumeirah beach. nothing is too much trouble for the staff, you were given a warm welcome and offered a drink on arrival. Afternoon tea and canapés on an evening were of a good standard. All drinks were international and there was even sparkling wine. My husband met a business colleague at the hotel for drinks and we were able to sign him into the lounge without a problem, we just paid for his drinks. What a great touch. They even called to our next venue to notify the reception staff we were running late and there would be an extra person visiting withi us, great service.
The room was cleaned to a high standard daily and everything was replenished daily. Again good service.
The pool was great, lovely sun loungers to laze on, a good sized pool and some great chilled music in the background. I really enjoyed the pool. The attendants even bring complementary water melon iced Lollys and spritz your face with cooling mist.....brilliant! I found the beach misleading as we walked to it through the Meydan beach club as directed by staff and were evicted from the walkway literally 3meters from the beach....most unamused! They need to have clearer directions where to go from the hotel to reach the beach, it was a rather embarrassing encounter we had!
Breakfast was good with a large variety of food to eat. It was very crowded in the second morning there and we were given a 15 minute wait, no probs we just went to the lounge. Breakfast was just as good and to be honest I enjoyed it more in the lounge.
Overall I cannot find anything wrong with the hotel. It's in a great location on jumeirah beach walk, there are a lot of restaurants and shops nearby.
The staff are great, there was one girl on reception who was brilliant, helpful courteous and friendly she did her job brilliantly. We weren't expecting to enjoy Dubai but we were wrong and as a result are thinking about visiting in the autumn and are seriously considering returning to the moevenpick.
We had a great visit and would recommend the hotel to anyone
