After reading some of the recent negative reviews about this hotel, I am pleased to say that our 2nd experience there was just as good as our first last year! Read my review from last year:
Once again we found the hotel to be wonderfully located with excellent service and very reasonable rates. Yes, the restaurant there can be noisy, but we had a room on the main floor next to the restaurant, and the noise was barely audible. There is nothing, I repeat nothing, more pleasurable (short of you know what!!!) than going for a swim in the Persian Gulf (just a few yards away from the hotel) in the morning before breakfast! Although the temps were already in the high 80s (F) at 8am, the water was clean and refreshing. Yes the breakfast is not what Americans are used to, but this is an Arab country so the "beef bacon" (which tastes a lot like corned beef) is to be expected. The hummus they serve is wonderful, and the dates are delicious!
Unlike some of the other reviewers, we found cabs to be plenitful and cheap in Dubai. I would, however, advise readers to be careful of hiring taxi service from the fellow at the tour desk in the lobby of the hotel. He was not terribly knowledgeable about tourist attractions (other than the ones he was selling), and he charged us twice what a regular taxi did to get to the Heritage Village in Dubai.
Would we ever stay there again if travelling to Dubai? You bet we would!!!!!
