Ramada Plaza Jumeirah Beach
Ranked #162 of 557 Hotels in Dubai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 19, 2013

I just stayed 3 nights at Ramada Plaza Jumeirah Beach hotel. This is a brand new and super clean hotel which is a real bargain compared to other hotels in this area. I stayed at Hilton Jumeirah Beach residences in September and Ramada Plaza is like a copy of that. The only difference is the price tag. Ramada Plaza provides more value with the same price.

We had a twin superior room which had a really nice Marina view. The room was huge! The breakfast was included in the price and was more than ok. In addition there are several nice cafes (Starbuck, Ihop etc....) in the Walk area if you decide to eat breakfast outside.

The pool is small and is in shade for the most of the day. This is however not a problem because the wonderful beach is just 2 minutes walk from the hotel. You may borrow a beach towel from the hotel. Excellent.

The location of the hotel is very good. The Walk with many restaurants and shops is just outside the hotel. In addition there is a 24 h supermarket just downstairs.

We will defenitely use this hotel again.

Dear guest from Helsinki,

many thanks for your rating and valuable feedback. We are offering great value for money and our goal is to exceed guest expectations. We have just included high speed internet into the room rate and opening our beach & pool reception offering beachbags, umbrellas and towels to go to the nearby beach or the pool. The room product get's a lot of praise and positive comments as they are all very spacious and spotless clean.
We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us and we are looking forward to welcoming you again.

Sunny regards from Dubai

We took a 2 bedroom suite to share as we were three adults and we were shown into a beautiful apartment/suite. It was spacious, well appointed, very clean, with a fully equipped kitchen, large sitting and dining areas with a balcony overlooking the marina. The master bedroom again was spacious and luxuriously appointed, with a huge and comfortable bed, ample lighting and sea views, albeit slightly blocked. We requested free Wifi in the room before booking so that we could get some work done and emails responded to, the hotel staff were very helpful and obliged.

This hotel is set amongst the Jumeira Beach Residences, which one might find a bit cramped with so many tall buildings surrounding the hotel, however the hotel has good access to the marina and Jumeira Beach Walk which is always lively with lots of restaurants and cafes.

The main reception is oddly at car park level, our taxi driver had some difficulty finding it but we just called the hotel and the reception staff gave him proper directions. On arrival at 1PM, the check out/check in process took very long, the hotel reception seemed understaffed. However, they gave us early check in and late check out which was very nice.

Overall, its a good location, new property and very nice rooms. We skipped the breakfast option as there are so many cafes and restaurants to explore at your doorstep. On my birthday, the hotel sent up a cake and fruit platter which was a kind gesture and a very nice touch!

Dear guests from Tanzania,
many thanks for your great review and comments. We are very proud and happy that all our guests love our spacious and well appointed rooms, suites and apartments. The smallest guest room that we have in the whole building is 45 sqm! The hotel is very new and opened only in summer 2012 - so we are constantly looking what to improve and making it easier and nicer for our guests. We are planning to open up the main entrance on ground level and have more prominent signage since the hotel is becoming so popular. By the way, we are also planning a brand new Ramada in the city where you are coming from. Welcome back to the growing Ramada family - see you soon.
Best regards

I stayed here with my wife and 3 children for 1 week over Newyear. We had an executive room on the 22nd floor which was very roomy and comfortable. The room looked over a small part of the Marina but no beach view.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful, I cannot comment on the food as we never ate in the hotel due to the large selection of well priced restaurants along the beach front which we used. The location is absolutely fantastic and very hard to beat in Dubai as it is located literally 2 minutes from the beach front in the middle of the JBR walk. It has a good sized swimming pool which was heated well, the pool at this time of year only got the sun until 11 am, which suited us as we didn't have to constantly top up the kids with sun cream. The hotel also allows towels to be signed out and taken to the beach which was good.

The only downside was the lifts which can be a wee bit of a challenge, however you get used to it and just have to be patient. Also when walking past breakfast one morning it looked very congested and we were glad we opted for room only.

All in all this is a great hotel, with great staff in a great location and we will certainly use it again.

Dear guest,
thank you for your kind comments and rating. We are always happy receiving feedback and to learn that our guests are happy and would or will return. This is our goal and intend - making sure you are happy with the facilities, location and services. Even though you might not have tried our restaurants because of the endless choice you have at JBR walk, we have excellent restaurants and bars that are very unique. i.e. our Brazillian Restaurant on the 35th floor with stunnig view from the outside terrace or at the same level rooftop Shisha lounge. Try it next time and you will never want to leave again...
Looking forward to welcoming you again in Dubai at the Ramada Plaza

Kind regards

I stayed here over Christmas with my family. The staff were very welcoming and always willing to help. We were made very comfortable from day one and the staff were very helpful. Montin from housekeeping and the concierge were brilliant.

The facilities are great and the hotel is so close to everything. 5 mins from JBR walk with tonnes of restaurants, supermarket just a minute away. The marina mall is about 7 minutes away and its very close to the metro on days you don't fancy a taxi.

I would definitely recommend this hotel if you want good value for money.

Great Hotel in a fantastic location close to the walk, service was excellent and our room two bedroom on the 15th floor had a fantastic view of the marina. We did not eat in the hotel as there are so many restaurants within walking distance, We were there for Christmas the staff presented us with Christmas goodies and arranged a late check out at short notice.

Dear guest,
Happy New Year!
I am very sorry to hear that you were not happy with a couple of things.
The Ramada Plaza was fully booked the last week of the year with over 1.100 guests. This leads unfortunately to delays in logistics like room service due to the lifts and space in restaurants.
Please understand that we can not allow parties with loud music in guest rooms and apartments as we have to protect the rights of our guests, many of them are families with children. We would have been happy helping you organizing your bachelor party in one of our function rooms or lounge & bars. Plrease contact us again and we will be more than happy to inviting you and your friends for food & drinks at half prize at our Speakeasy Restaurant & Bar at the Ramada Plaza.
Many thanks
Best regards

Hotel is very nice, staff is nice.
It's new hotel and still some thins had to be in order. But all in all very nice hotel with perfect location.
It was a bit hard to find the hotel since is new, but once you get in everything is very nice.
Only lifts should be faster

Dear guest,
Happy New Year!
Thank you for your feedback and excellent score on Tripadvisor.
The hotel is now known by most of the taxi drivers - as a tipp for other travellers in future: Besides Ramada Plaza JBR, always mention Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Beach Road, JBR, Bahar 7 as address and direction.
