“Fantastic Family Holiday”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

We have two children aged 5 and 6 and after reading the hotel reviews before our stay, we were a little worried however from the moment we arrived for our week long break half term, our whole weeks experience at the Le Meridien was absolutely incredible. There is so much to say, but really the fact that you are able to enjoy the hotel and neighbouring Westin (which is also amazing) with the same standard of care and service throughout really made this one of our best holidays ever and we have been lucky enough to travel a lot. Firstly, our room was huge and we had a super king bed and two separate large singles for our two children, so we were really comfortable - the beds were incredibly comfortable actually and made for a great sleep. We had a city view, which the kids loved, and it did provide us with a very quiet location - only when we were on the beach on our first night did we hear the beach club which had we been able to, we would have joined in as it looked like fun (kids not allowed obviously!). The food is beyond, loved every restaurant we went to, including Hunters (twice), El Sur, Watatsumi and the incredible Italian which we went to nearly every lunch and also for dinner a couple of times. It was that good! Wine is expensive for sure, that really pushed up our overall spend for the holiday but it was a good selection and worldwide as well available by the glass or bottle. Breakfast is great, loved the choice at buffet and they would always bring me my strong late done just right. Our children were treated so well by the staff and a couple of really good family things to mention includes the great lifeguards who are there all day and properly watch out for the kids, the beach has kids beach essentials like buckets and spades etc and the kids pools are great, sheltered too. My husband and I both used the spa at the Westin, which was great and some really different treatments. We used the tennis courts a couple of times, had a couple of lessons (coach was brilliant!) and the gym as well, which is really well equipped. We absolutely loved this hotel and wish we had stayed longer but we will be back for sure! Thanks to all the staff who really made it great, in particular to the incredible chefs at both Le Meridien and Westin as you are fantastic!

Room Tip: We had a deluxe room with city view, on booking we were meant to have 2 beds but at check in we were...

Just three nights half board and basically faultless.In my opinion this hotel has a better aspect than Jumeira Beach. The room was excellent,with sea-view & balcony.The staff could not have been more helpful and courteous.Food was fine and varied.Take it easy on drinks,they,re pricey,but that is not a complaint.Also,do not change currency at hotels,the rate is not good.(Again this does not detract from the overall quality of the hotel) The gardens were beautifully laid out and the pool and beach facilities were excellent.A very pleasant stay,the next one will be longer.

Room Tip: Make certain that you are not above the bar.

I have just returned from a 9 night break at the Meridien Mina Seyahi where my wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday. I have to say the recent Hotel refurbishment has enhanced this gem. We had a room with a sea view, the view being the best I have ever had at any resort. From the day we arrived we found al the staff very helpful , friendly and polite. Nothing was too much trouble for them. There was a good choice of food throughout the day with alternative choices of restaurants both in this Hotel and it's sister Hotel next door , The Westin. Would recommend this Hotel to anyone. Ticked all the boxes.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms give a superb view. Just one downfall on Thursdays and Fridays ,loud music from the B...

Welcome was great, room was ready on arrival, shame it was raining when we came, but cleared up after that, the hotel was clean, staff were helpfully and friendly.
Beach was great, not packed just right. The only thing was from the Barista bar, the music was way tooooo loud and went on till about 4am, so did not sleep to well throughout the three day stay that we had there. Overall the experience was fantastic.

I stayed here for a week and everything worked perfectly from the first moment i arrived. The staff was great! Doormen were helpful and polite throughout the staying, room was nice and clean, the food was delicious in the lounge, poolarea, beach, gym and sauna were all great. The room with city view was good, not noisy at all. I have nothing to complain. I will definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

Stayed here from 3/2/2014 to 11/2/2014 room 711 this was the second time at this hotel, great room land facing, think this was an advantage as some people with sea views complained of noise from Barasti bar especially on thurs and fri nights . Cant fault the staff for their attentiveness and eagerness to please,nothing was too much trouble. It was also good to have use of the facilities and some restaurants at the Westin next door. Great location and grounds with nice beach area,
Had use of club room facilities also which were great.

Room Tip: Land facing rooms are better if you want quite.

We chose this hotel because of the seemingly good value half board offer. This was not worth paying for, The half board deal was limited to the cheaper restaurants, at the nicer restaurants you do not even get a small discount. Since we didn't want burgers or spaghetti we chose to eat at the Japanese restaurant one night and have the seafood barbecue the next. Both were lovely but there was a sense we were paying for dinner twice, since we had already paid for half board.

Our only other gripe was that immediately on arrival we were offered an upgrade to a "better room with facilities." We were a bit surprised as we had assumed our room would have facilities. After a few minutes it transpired that we were not being offered a free upgrade but one which would cost us an extra £100 per day. We asked if we could see our room before deciding and in fact this was perfectly big enough, with a lovely balcony and view and it did have facilities. so we rejected the upgrade offer and learned our first lesson about Dubai - they will always try to get more money out of you.

Other than these two gripes this is a lovely hotel, perfectly situated on the marina, with wonderful views and great service. The pool and beach are lovely and you also have use of the hotel next door with a buggy service between the two. the breakfast buffet was the best I have experienced anywhere in the world..

Room Tip: Beach view rooms are worth it
