“IT IS SOOOO GREAT!!!!”
Reviewed August 22, 2007

Just returned from a vacation for 6 nights at the Le Royal Meridien Dubai. We picked this hotel by reading all the great reviews of the TA posters. They were absolutely right!!! We have been travelling in Europe, Far East and North America and this was definitely the BEST hotel we have ever stayed in!!!
As soon as we arrived in the hotel at 02:00 am, they seated us in the lobby, offered cold towels and drinks and all the check-in process was done in minutes... We had booked a seaview Club room but they gave us a suit in the main building. (They later admitted that there was a overbooking in the Club Building and they actually didn't have a room for us there) Our suite was on the 7th floor and I think had the best view of all the hotel complex. The suit had a very large bedroom and a good size of a living room. Both rooms had TV, DVD player, etc. It worked great for us because after putting the baby in bed, we could watch TV in the other room.
The suit has other great benefits, too:
- You can choose your daily complimentary wine from the wine list,
- you can choose a movie from the DVD list and the butler asks if you want popcorns with movie:) When you say yes, you receive the popcorns in boxes, just like in the movie theatres...
-there is the turn-down service. In the evening, they open your bed, close the curtains and leave chocolates on the pillows.
- a big plate of fruits replaced daily
- a great tray of coffee, tea and cookies replaced daily
- you receive canapes in the aftrnoon.
There is no word to describe hotel staff!! They are the nicest people we have seen working in a hotel. They are so polite and always smiling. They'll do anything to comfort you. But this is definitely the result of a succesfull managing. Because, when you go out to the shopping centers, you see the difference!
We were on Bed&Breakfast rate, and the breakfast in the Brasseri was wonderful! In the evenings, we usually ordered some food to our room. Especially the "Traditional Hot Mezes" was a great choice. There are 4 different types of meze , 4 piece/each. It is enough for 2 people and costs only AED 60.00 (GBP 8.00)
And of courses presented so well.
It is too hot to be outside around noon time, so there are many shopping malls to visit.
The mall of the Emirates is huge. It is nice to watch people skiing there. But, I liked Ibn Battuda mall much better. The interior is sooo beatiful, te place is less crowded and they have most major UK brands.
The taxi fare to:
The Mall Of the Emirates - AED 30.00 (GBP 4.00)
The Ibn Battuda - AED 15.00 (GBP 2.00)

The tours:
Desert Safari - takes 5 hours, not bad, costs AED 220.00 or 240.00
Afternoon tea at the Burj al Arab, great experience, costs AED 250.00 - 350.00 p.p. (better to make online reservation in advance)
After the tea, you can take the Burj's cart to the Madinat Souk which is a great place to see.
Well, I'm dying to go back to this hotel myself. If you are making plans for Dubai, don't even hesitate to book yourself a room at the LRM, you won't regret it...

We've just arrived back from a 10 night stay in Le Royal Meridien. The place is amazing! The staff were fantastic, honestly could not have done any more, they were always one step ahead.
We booked a Club Room but were upgraded to a Tower Suite after 2 nights. We still got to use the Club Room facilites, which I would definitely recommend. Afternoon tea was lovely during the day to cool down & food was lovely. The alcohol is in the evenings is great too and drinks can be quiet expensive in Dubai.
It was my partner's bithday while we were there & they delivered a bottle of sparkling wine & birthday cake to the room the morning of his birthday, which was a lovely touch.
Hammams pools were fab. There's so much to do in Dubai, but if you prefer, you could stay in the hotel for the entire stay.
Really couldn't fault it in any way, saving already to go back!

On arrival its was just brillant , I had ran out of cigs and when I asked at reception where I could get some the man on duty offered me his pack for keeps ( i only took one ) We were taken everywhere not just pointed at , we were upgraded for free , when we were in the room we were shown how EVERYTHING worked . The room was fab , the hotel was fab and the staff are the best , dont be affraid when you see the new skyscrapers being built around you because you wont hear a hammer not even if your outside . I got engaged over there as well and the hotel put on a great show for us . If your looking for a ring just go to the gold and diamond pak 10 mins away beside the mall of the emmirates ( a must ) and try Marabha or Cara.

Just returned from our holiday at the LRM for 13 days, and believe me, it's really as good as most of the reviews say. I guess you will always have the odd glitch but, please don't let it put you off staying here, it is fantastic. We arrived in the early hours and were in the room within 10 minutes. The staff were brilliant, the rooms perfectly acceptable (make sure you get a sea view because the land views look out onto the development), and the pools great, particularly for our 8 year old son. The heat and humidity can be a bit sapping in August but it's not a big problem as long as you are sensible and keep taking fluids on board. It feels a bit weird getting a buggy ride from the hotel door to the pools, but after a couple of days in the heat, you're so grateful for them. Breakfast in the Brasserie was great. They make your omlettes, waffles, eggs etc to order, just how you like them, the choice is endless. Drinks in the hotel are expensive, but no different to any of the decent hotels in Dubai. I played golf at Al Badia which was an unforgettable experience, why can't golf clubs in the UK be like that ? All in all, a beautiful place and we're currently raiding the piggy bank for next year.

This hotel should be No1.

We have travelled extensively throughout Europe, The Americas and the far east but Le Meridien is undoubtedly one of the best hotels we have stayed in. This is the first time I have written a review on trip advisor but felt compelled to share our experience at this wonderful hotel.

The service is unparalleled - there is someone to do everything! We stayed on the club floor with a sea view - the room was large with a wide selection of Hermes toiletries which were replenished daily.

Breakfast at the hotel was great and club guests could choose from one of two restaurants or the club lounge to have breakfast.

Make sure you contact the hotel before you arrive to arrange your complementary transfers from the airport - we were met as we got off the plane led through passport control and were escorted to a waiting car with cold flannels and water - most welcome even after 20 seconds in the 50 degree dubai heat.

The service is exemplary throughout the hotel and although we did tip the staff it is not expected.

Complimentary golf buggys are available all day and evening to take you around the complex or down to the beach

As a preference I would pay a little extra for a seaward facing room - there is alot of construction in Dubai but if you are on the seaward side of the hotel you dont notice plus you get a great view.

Dubai overall is a very safe city - taxis are very cheap and are also safe and reliable. Be sure to catch the free shuttle over to the Grosvenor House hotel and go to Bar 44 which has spectacular views over the palm and the gulf. Go while it is still light for the best views.

I would definitely stay again and would recommend the hotel to anyone.

Having read all the reviews I can honestly say that the hotel exceeds all expectation. We were upgraded from standard sea view room to Tower Suite with butler service upon arrival (it was our 30th anniversary) and from there on we were treated like royalty. Both of us thought that it might be to intrusive to be treated this way throughout the holiday, but it really did not feel that way at all. The suite had to be seen to be believed and is exactly as shown on the video on youtube. The staff are fantastic without being intrusive and the restaurants we visited - 2 italian ones, Prime Rib and the buffet one all served fantastic food. The layout, decor, swimming pools and public areas are immaculate. Our room was stripped of all bedding every day and complimentary wine and nibbles provided in the room each afternoon.
Only one very slight downside is that many people multi book the restaurants and they just don't turn up, so you can get told a restaurant is full only to discover it half empty when you wander past. A little annoying, but honestly the only thing i could fault.
Would I go back.....yes... and I have never visited any hotel twice.

We did not get off to a good start this year.

After the most perfect stay last year I could not wait to go again. When we landed I went to Le meridian desk to say we were here for our car. They had no record of me despite having arranged via email with the hotel directly for a car to collect us. So they got us a Taxi after making us wait around for ages.

When we arrived there was no room ready, again I had asked for early check in. My son then decided to throw up! We really needed a room now.

Still no room till 1 minute to 12.

Then the toilet did not work, right by the lift so no sleep. It took 3 day for us to be moved living out of a case as we kept being told we would be moved but then told sorry hotel full, which is strange as loads of room showing on their own website.

Once moved our holiday felt like it had begun at last and it was wonderful!

Felt we wasted 3 days of our holiday over this.

We were moved to the Tower. The service is faultless over there.
