Stayed at the Marina Byblos Dubai for one night to visit our daughter and husband for birthday celebrations. Reception staff were very busy when we arrived, so it was a while before we were seen to. Only one member of staff seemed to be working, and was under pressure, however instead of acknowledging us and asking for our patience, we were virtually ignored. Once we had got her attention there wasn't a problem, but my husband was already agitated!
The room and bathroom was very clean, décor was pleasant and main bed comfortable. Unfortunately the folding bed for our 16 year old was like sleeping on a plank of wood!
Breakfast was adequate but not much choice. The main problem with the hotel was the pool, my husband said it was very dirty, so I didn't even bother putting my cozie on!.
On a positive note for the hotel would be the location, at Dubai Marina and near JBR beach, not far from the metro and Marina mall and just around the corner from our daughters apartment.
I have to say also that it was very reasonable. So just for that reason I would stay again, probably only one night though!
So Byblos if you read this, just give your staff some extra training, clean the pool regularly, try out the folding bed for yourself!!!! and maybe make the breakfast a little bit more interesting!!
