“very ordinary!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Hi… I was in Ramada Jumeriah for two nights 27-Mar to 29th. Rooms are very ordinary, nothing special.
There are no entertainments at the hotel. And the Magnum is closed and the bar open after 17:00, which is tiny and has no atmosphere. It’s a little remote from shops and city center but taxies are Ok.
It’s more like for companies holding courses or seminars, but defiantly not a good choice to enjoy time there. You need to be aware that their website is outdated and doesn’t tell you the actual facts.
Also be aware that the prices will be changed when you are checking in after adding taxies and rooms’ services. Also you need to know that they will take a charge in advance from your credit card, just in case.
Visitors are not allowed. ID check is a rule at check in desk.
There are so many good hotels in Dubai with full respect to you personally and to your private business.
I thought to try it, but surely I won’t choose it again.

Room Tip: You can't control the A/C.

Dear SkYeveryWhere,

Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback regarding your recent stay at our hotel. We sincerely apologize that your experience was anything less than satisfying.

It is our goal to continuously make each and every guest experience the best it can be. As of the moment, we are currently working on upgrading our website. Please note The Docks bar has a live VJ every Thursday and Friday and on Tuesday nights, we have a DJ who’s also a game organizer during football matches. And if you’re looking for an earlier entertainment, our pool bar is open from mid-day every day. We also have a daily shuttle service to and from the Dubai Mall and open beach.

Taking a deposit is a procedure of every hotel for incidental charges. The amount blocked in your credit card if no incidental charges spent will be release upon check-out. It would be greatly appreciated to understand in what manner you have booked your stay with us.

We do allow our guests to have freedom during their stay, however, as directed by Dubai CID, kindly note that checking of IDs for visitors is a must.

Thanking you for your understanding and we all hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the near future.

Sincerely,

Todd Hunter
Executive Assistant Manager

Stayed here for 4 days mid march,arrived at 2.00am to a very helpful guy on reception who upgraded us to a very nice suite,which was very clean and comfortable.The breakfast was excellent with a huge range of different dishes. The docks bar attached to the hotel is nice too with a great barman who always remembered what it was you were drinking.In general I would recommend this hotel but dubai is so spread out you have to use taxis thankfully they are cheap.
Pool area is nice but quite small.

At this price point, it is hard to get a room in this location. By Taxi only 7-10 mins from Dubai Mall/ Burj Khalifa, 15 mins from MOE. Located in a quiet area for a good night's rest. Hotel is new and well equipped/ furnished, although I would expect free wi-fi but it's not a deal-breaker.

Staff was efficient and the food we ordered was decent too. Didn't have breakfast in our deal so can't say how good/ bad that would be. This hotel is not near a metro station but transportation by taxi is better in Dubai, metro is a bit overpriced and works out to be not much cheaper if 2 people are travelling together.

We had a very comfortable 5 night's stay without any glitches whatsoever and I will consider Ramada Jumeirah for my next visit.

Room Tip: Get a room away from elevators, else all road noise is well insulated against

Just returned from 8 day break with my friend. Birthday cake in room, lovely touch. Upgraded room, another lovely touch. Staff so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much bother. Free hour internet access every day. Pool area wonderful, staff attentive, food excellent. Meal in Ginger was fantastic, staff well attentive. Manicure and pedicure in beauty salon with Jennifer, best I've ever had. Courtesy bus to beach and malls. Taxis cheap. Places to eat around very reasonable especially Beruit. Must go on sand safari, so much fun. Would recommend and visit again. Wonderful experience

Room Tip: all rooms are excellent

Just returned rom 4 night break with my husband. The hotel is great with lovely, friendly, professional staff. The rooms are more than adequate, the buffet breakfast is superb, pool bar a nice treat, room service good value, bus to beach handy but easier to grab a taxi back as so cheap. Taxi to Dubai Mall/Burj Khalifa around 20 UED, beach 16 UED, Burj Al Arab/Wild Wadi 50 UED, great value. Jumeirah Beach Park is beautiful and the lake fountains are amazing. The hotel sent me up some birthday cake which was a lovely touch. Afternoon tea at the Burj Al Arab is great value although looks expensive at first glance ..... if you can, do it!! Would I return.... Yes!!

Room Tip: Room 110 had good view

This was part of a package deal on our way to Maritius. We had 3 nights B&B here and it was perfect for our needs. The rooms are big and have everything you need, complimentary bottled water daily, good quiet a/c, mini bar, hairdryer and very comfortable bed. Swimming pool on the roof is ok and bar meals fine. Taxi always outside main entrance and seemed to cost £10 approx to everywhere we visited. The buffet breakfast in this hotel is wonderful - a massive selection of food which was a great bonus for us. We also ate at the hotel Thai restaurant for one night which we really enjoyed. All the staff were helpful, smiling and friendly - wouldn't hesitate staying here again.
