“PURE HEAVEN”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

My wife and I arrived back yesterday after 5 days holiday at what can only be described as heaven,and we cannot wait to return next year.Having sampled hotels in New York,Honolulu,Barbados,that advertised 5 star luxury and duly honoured their promise Mina A' Salam blew them all out of the water.On arrival this place gives you the WOW factor and duly delivered it all.From the comfort of the rooms,which are more than spacious,with a bed to die for,the service,hospitality,friendliness of ALL the staff puts this hotel up there with the very best.Advertising this place does'nt give it the true picture,it is by far so much better.Nothing is too much bother,it's cleanliness,service,ambience,layout,position,makes this place faultless,it really is the Jewel in the Crown,a real Arabian Palace.I simply cannot wait to return.To the management and Staff,thank you for 5 wonderful days,please dont change anything it is perfection personified.

Fabulous hotel in the Madinat Jumeirah complex of hotels, villas, and souk. Transportation around the complex by water taxi was fun and a good place to cool off on a hot day. Service very attentive, but not fawning. Breakfast buffet could serve as all the food you would need for the entire day. Pamper yourself in total luxury.

My husband had booked this hotel as a birthday present and boy was I not disappointed.
Pictures do not do the hotel justice, it simply is an Arabian palace. The waterways which link the 3 resorts together and restaurants is a very tranquil way of getting about the hotel.
We had a ocean view deluxe room. It was gorgeous. The bed was huge, bigger than a super king.
It had a lounge area with sofa and the bathroom was very spacious with separate shower and very deep bath. The fixtures and fittings of the room finished the opulence of the room off.
The view from the balcony was amazing. On a good day you can see as far as the Atlantis resort on the palm and you can also see the infamous burj al Arab rather closely.
We were also offered to upgrade to the executive lounge at 50 % discount. This included dining in the executive lounge on a morning, afternoon tea and happy hour ( free drinks) from 6pm til 8pm. It was well worth doing this for us a couple. It was peaceful at breakfast and serene watching the sunset from the executive lounge balcony. lee, the executive lounge manager was extremely friendly and helpful and also big thanks to Kevin who was our waiter for most of our stay, he remembered everything from what we ate for breakfast every morning to our names. Other staff were also overwhelmingly helpful and friendly as well, too many names to mention.
We were half board and didn't feel like we were limited in choice of restaurants like other travellers seem to think at this hotel nor did we encounter any difficulty in reservations etc. if anything it was fantastic. The food was always out of this world and again so was the service.
As it was my birthday, the hotel sent a voucher for a free blow dry at the salon, fresh made chocolates,and a birthday card. we encountered a small problem with our booking and the hotel sorted this out for us in good time and as a gesture of goodwill sent me a bouquet of fresh roses. All very appreciated and above and beyond what you would expect from a hotel.
The beach is immaculate and every sun lounger has a parasol so no excuse to go. The sea is so clear and is warm. The beach has the prefect view for the burj al Arab. The hotel actually has its own photographer who will take our photo In front of the burj to make your stay more memorable. Fee applies.
We also went to the hotel gym. We are gym enthusiasts and I have to say this is THE best gym i Have ever been in. Aside the fact it is massive, it's fully air conditioned and has every fitness appliance you can think of, all with a view over the indoor pool. While working out, staff walk around with wet Ice cold towels to cool you down. Perfect.
Places to visit while you're there: have drinks in the atmosphere bar on the 126th floor of the burj Khalifa ( booking applies) astounding views, the karama markets a must for the shoppers looking for a bargain, the emirates mall is shopping mall decadence as are the fountains outside, a must see and if you fancy a waterpark the Atlantis resort and aquarium is a must visit. When you stay at this hotel you get free entry to wild wadi waterpark which is also good fun.
This was our first trip to Dubai and the mina a Salam and I have to say we can't wait to come back to this hotel!!!

my husband and i have just returned from our second trip to mina a salam. we first stayed at the mina 7yrs ago and after reading some of the reviews we wondered at the changes we would find. we need not have been concerned. it was fantastic just as we had remembed it. on arrival we were greeted with ice cold drinks and hot towels to freshen up. perfect. after the horrible flight we had endured with emirates airline and the 45 degree heat outside. we were shown quickly to our beautiful room but best of all was the fantastic ocean view we had been given.(thank you).we had complimentary half board which we had no problems with and the quality of the food is fantastic.the service is most definatley 5 star.we went 20th may until 29th may 2013. as the week went on yes more children did arrive as the school hols had started but my only critisim would be that they ask that ball games are played in the larger pool in the Al Qusar as the minas pool is too small and doesnt leave enough room for the swimmers.we did hear a rumour that they were about to start to refurbish some of the rooms how true this is i cannot say.hope they dont change it too much.on our visit we had no problems getting sunbeds arround the pool even at 11.00am. the mina a salam remains our favourite hotel the staff are excellent they know what you want before you do.lol. and thank you for our invite to the cocktail party it was very nice.

We booked the MAS as the first stop of our honeymoon, on the way to the Maldives.

We arrived early at this amazing hotel because of the time our flight arrived. We were immediately checked in and escorted up to our room. We had the most fantastic view of the beach, ocean and the Burj hotel and the bed was so comfortable.

The food is fantastic. There is really no need to eat in any of the other restaurants other than the main international buffet one, however, we did try Zhen He's Chinese restaurant one day and we definitely recommend it. It is the best Chinese food we have ever eaten. The wasabi prawns being the highlight. Normally, when we go abroad, we don't eat desserts in the restaurants but here they were fantastic!

The service was impeccable. Ever member of staff stopped and greeted us as we walked past and nothing was too much trouble for them.

We made use of the complimentary access to the waterpark. This is a definite must do if you are a fan of them. They had some of the best slides we have ever been on.

The only down side to this hotel is that drinks are very expensive (I know this is how most hotels make their money but it was a shock). A bottle of wine works out at about £35/£40 and a bottle of water ranges from £5-£7!! Having said that, We would definitely stay here again and will be recommending it to anyone that asks.

First time in dubai and it couldnt have been better!! Chose Mina after recommendation from a friedn and we were not dissapointed.

Couldnt beleive how helpfull everyone was working there.

We arived at approx 8am after a night flight so were very tired and we were wlecomed with cold towels and a lovely fruit juice. We had booked a delux arabi room which was there most standard room and the gf was not happy with the view from balcony as it overlooekd a new buulding site at the end of the complex. it was suposed to be a special occasion for us and we had a moan and they soon moved us to another room overlooking the canals so we were very happy.

I cant begin to tel u how vast the complex is. Think vegas size hotels!! Be prepared to walk far to your room and one has to take golf buggies and abras (gondola type boats0 around the resort to get to the vast number og restaurants and bars.

There is a huge main swimming pool at the al qasr hotel which if staying at mina u would need to take the boat there but mina guests have a much smaller one with was much more intimate so depends what you want.

We were half board so u get vouchers to use for either lunch or dinner. They can be used in nearly all restaurants etc but the a few you have to pay a supllment for. U get a starter, main and dessert with each voucher and it covers i beleive all of the menu - so either a steak or a salad!!

Waiter round pool will adhere to your every need. When we ordered lunch we could have the main and then later have a dessert they were amicable as sometimes didnt want it all at same time. There was a happy hour at 4-6 so all alcohol was half price.

Breakfast buffet was excellent catering for every taste and u can get as mauch as u want. Eggs cooked to order how u like them.

Dotted around the resort ar staff with clip boards which check on u every now angain to see if your aguest which was a bit annoying at start of trip but they soon got to know us.

Would def stay again.
