We stayed at the hotel for a week between 24 and 31st December. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. As it is a business hotel without large swimmingpool or beach, you can easily go to the other Jumeirah hotels and beaches with the busshuttle or by taxi. The beach of Jumeirah Beach Hotel is superb, it seems to be one of the most expensive beaches in the area but very good! With view on the Burj Al Arab right in front of you.
Taxi rates are cheap! The distance to Dubai Mall or Burj Khalifa is ignorable, and the fountains at Burj Khalifa are breathtakingly beautiful. As I said, if you want to go shopping in another Mall, the Mall of the Emirates is very good as well!
The Wild Wadi Waterparc was in that time of the year quite busy, but our children really enjoyed it. (They are 4 and 7 years old and good swimmers).
I only have one small thing to remember: do go on time for breakfast, there was - for our period - a queue to go in, remember that some people think they are better than the rest and don't want to wait. So they just pass the others, I find it disgraceful and disrespectfull!
I have two small remarks for the hotel to think of:
- the room is very spaceous, we had a deluxe suite, but there a not enough closets if you are 4 people and are staying a week
- the vouchers that you receive for the halfboard system are confusing. It would be much better to give every voucher a value like 90AED for the childrens voucher and 180AED for the adults voucher. As some restaurants in the hotel charge extra for going there like the Rib Room - excellent food by the way - it is not usual for children to have a starter, main course and desert all at the same time... For us, adults, we hardly ever take a starter, main course and desert either, so in the end our bill was far more expensive with vouchers than without... I wonder why we had taken the halfboard if we had to pay more in the end? If we did not discussed this with the restaurants manager, we would have paid far too much, as he is slightly slick.
Pay attention, we made a reservation directly with one of the local limo services (City 555 luxury rent a car- Rana Ameer) to bring us to the airport, be he never showed up... Nice promise... We nearly missed our flight, fortunately there was Ashfaq Ahmed Private Limousine to take us - on time - to the airport, thank god!
Nevertheless we had a fantastic holiday, and might most probably go back this year to this hotel!
