Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina
Ranked #81 of 556 Hotels in Dubai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 3, 2008

My Boyfriend and I stayed at the Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina, Dubai in October 2007 for his 21st Birthday and loved every second!
From check in to check out we had an amazing time and no complaints what so ever.
The rooms were spacious with comfortable beds and a nice sized balcony, we had a sea view room and could see Palm Island being built up (which looked strange as it is like seeing diggers in the middle of the sea) saying this it did not spoil the view in the slightest. Looking to the right from the balcony you see the figure of the Burj. And to the left loads of beautiful boats and endless sea line. The bathroom was a very good size, with complimentary toiletries. The rooms were very clean with the towels changed daily. Complimentary slippers and dressing gown for your stay. I must say I loved the Harribo sweets left on your pillow every day too! Ha.
Breakfast was included in the deal and we were not disappointed. There was a great selection of food available. Pancakes are highly recommended.
The beach was lovely and clean. Plenty of sun beds available. Waiters coming round offering drinks (I believe food too although we never ordered any) which were much needed in the heat! The pool area did seem to be busier however there were plenty of sun beds on the grass. The pool was freezing!! But very refreshing and the swim up bar was defiantly something we took advantage of.
Cabs from the hotel were very quick as I do believe there is a very small taxi rank like place on the hotel premises. Cabs were very cheap; we paid about £20 for one from the airport to the hotel.
We packed so much in to our trip, one of the most enjoyable things was the Desert Safari, and it’s a must!!! It’s brilliant! The dune bashing was scary but enjoyable, watching the sun set over the dunes was a great experience and not to be missed, the food was good too with load to choose from, even for me and I’m a fussy eater. This trip is a must! But the best thing we did by far was go to the Madinat Jumeirah Hotel to eat in a Chinese restaurant called Zheng He’s. We had to get a water taxi through the water way and the views were what I can only describe as breathtaking and amazing! The Food was the best that I have ever tasted. There was entertainment from a stand in the middle of the water way with singers performing a range of soft songs. If you can go there please do, its not that expensive but it worth every single penny! You will also get a spectacular view of the Burj.
I can not recommend this hotel enough! We are already thinking about returning there this year and can not wait! Please do not hesitate in booking this hotel, it might not be a 7* hotel but its brilliant!

This hotel has a great garden/pool and private beach. We had a ocean-facing club floor room with a balcony, and right in front of us is the Palm Jumeirah, still under construction. The view is just beautiful and I'm happy that I stayed here right on the beach.

The room is very comfortable and large. The bathroom is quiet nice. The breakfast at the club lounge was excellent.

My only warning is to stay away from Tang, the molecular gastronomy restaurant in the hotel. I love molecular gastronomy, but I hated this restaurant with a passion. Everything about it got on my nerves.

I spent with my wife and with my daughter in June 2007, 15 days in Le Meridien Mina Seyahi. The hotel is centrally located on Jumeirah beach near the new Dubai Marina. The new Dubai Marina and the Marina Walk are in walking distance. The large shopping centers "Mall of the Emirates" and "Ibn Battuta Mall" can be reached by car in a few minutes. Taxis are very cheap in Dubai, the hotel also provides a shuttle service to the major shopping malls.
Recommended value is the limusine service of the hotel.

The hotel has its 5-stars fully deserved. It is not overly opulent but luxurious. You feel immediately comfortable.

The staff is professional, competent, friendly and always strives to the guest.

The pool area, beach and gardens are very well maintained. Beach couches are available in sufficient numbers. The sea is despite the nearby Palm Jumeirah very clean. The service on the beach an hotel garden is great.

In the hotel, there are several restaurants, all with excellent cuisine.

"Waves", the International Restaurand serves a
very good breakfast, and a daily changing lunch and dinner buffet. (very good) In addition, there is 1 french, 2 italian, a pool and seafood restaurant. In front of the Hotel is the Barasti bar with live music.

We had a room with a balcony and sea view. From the balcony, we had a great view of the beach and the Palm Jumeirah. In the evening we saw the construction of the lighted building sites on the Palm Jumeirah . Construction site noise was not audible.

The rooms are beautifully furnished with everything you need. minibar, TV, playstation, safe, bathrobes, slippers, toiletry etc. The room cleaning was done several times a day. In the evening the take you a little attention on your bed, was very nice.

We spent really beautiful days in this hotel can recommend the Le Meridien Mina Seyahi without restrictions. We will surely soon be returned to the hotel .

My girlfriend and I recently stayed at Le Meridien Mina for 5 nights to celebrate my 30th birthday.
I prearranged airport transfer with the hotel which was great. After getting through immigration and collecting our luggage we were quickly taken to a brand new Range Rover and given iced towels and water. Just what we needed.
We stayed in a deluxe sea view room which was a good size. The bed was extremely comfortable and huge. Haribo bears were left on your pillow each evening during the turn down service and also a weather forcast for the following day.
We ate at Tang restaurant on our first evening as we couldn't get a table in the dhow restaurant. This was an experience! Japanese and French "Fusion." We love food but i would only recommend this for the brave. My girlfriend ordered lamb for her main course and i ordered steak. The lamb arrived wrapped in the middle of a ball of candy floss and my steak had been boiled in a bag for 35minutes!! Not quite Heston Blumenthal!!
Breakfasts were really good with a real variety of foods on offer. The beach location of the hotel is its greatest asset and the Barasti beach bar was really cool. A great place to drink cocktails and watch the sun go down whilst listening to cool tunes.
Taxis or hotel cars are almost instantly there and we had no trouble getting to Gordon Ramsay's Verre restaurant (amazing) or to the Burj for afternoon tea (a must). We also purchased tickets for Wild Wadi water park from the info centre in the hotel reception. This saves on queuing at the park.
Overall this is a great hotel which we managed to get at a reasonable price. If your looking for out and out luxury this is probably not the hotel (or price range) for you but it is of a very good standard.

My wife, daughter and I have just spent 6 days at le Meridien. We have stayed in other Dubai hotels, including the Grand Hyatt and Grosvenor House. We stayed in a Superior Club Room with a Seaview. The room was a corner room and had great views. The down side was that it was above the Barasti bar which was pretty noisy on two or three of the nights that we were there. My daughter certainly didnt object though and rated the Bar quite highly.
The club lounge was OK for breakfast but the Happy Hour was anything but. The drinks were OK but the atmosphere was dead ,perhaps contributed to by the lack of canapes compared with other hotels we have stayed in. They were in short pathetic and not what you would expect having paid extra in a hotel of this class.
The staff in the lounge were very friendly and helpful but something has to be done about the lounge itself if they are to compete with similar hotels.
The restaurants were OK but the choice was a little limited.
The big plus for the hotel was the beach location which was excellent.
All in all a pleasant stay but there are areas which can improve. We would stay there again for the location but whether we would pay extra for the Club lounge is another matter

Just back from the Mina Seyahi where we stayed for a week with family and friends. We booked the all-inclusive option which for a group of 5 adults and 3 kids was a good idea. Wide and varied variety of excellent food and 'mainstream brand' drinks. Upgraded to Royal Club rooms which were a bit tight for that extra child's bed. Noise from the Barasti bar in the evenings was a real nuisance- the bar empties around 2.30am. If you have never been to Dubai before you would rate the service in this hotel as excellent. If you had been and stayed somewhere like the Royal Meridien you would grade it as good- somewhat tatty mattresses on the sunloungers, slow pool service and overly casual reception staff, but other than these minor gripes, an excellent choice for a family holiday.
