My husband and I enjoyed our stay here but we couldn't help comparing it to other 5 star hotels we have stayed in, in Dubai! The big draw here is the all inclusive deal, the food was fantastic and staff very friendly but I would rather go half board to one of the excellent Jumeriah Beach hotels and get turn down service, treats left on the pillow, newspaper every day, fluffy towels on luxurious sunbeds on the beach, waiter service on the beach, ice lollies, fruit throughout the day brought to your sunbed etc, etc the list goes on. My biggest disappointment at the IBN Battuta was the beach club!! The sunbed cushions on the beach were brown with dirt, there were cracked plastic tables and cracked ice buckets!! Maybe the management team should call in to either the Royal Mirage or Royal Meridien to see how it is done.
If it is your first time in Dubai you will like it!!!!!!
