i was greeted by a very nice security guard who sorted out my parking and luggage, then it took 4 people 20 minutes to check me in with lots of things they could not do, it was late, so i just wanted to go to sleep!!!
breakfast is plentiful with no surprises, but make sure you eat it within the specified time or you will be charged again (i was listening to a man checking out having an argument about being 10 minutes late for breakfast, so he was charged as another meal. just one example of the culture here of winning the argument not the business!!!
the hotel is overlooking the public beach in Jumeirah One, so very convenient, close the the mosque and lime tree cafe ….
i asked for a quiet room as i believe it can be noisy on weekends with music and diners, so i had a room in the centre of the hotel, with hardly any light. i had asked for non smoking, but it did smell a bit strange, i don’t think they actually link up any requests you may make prior to checkin. the beds are comfortable, room is adequate, the safe did not work and i eventually found the remote control for the TV under the bed.
this place is probably worth the hassles due to the location - if you can get an on line deal with booking.com or similar
