“Expensive”
Reviewed August 19, 2006

I stayed in this hotel for two weeks, nice hotel but food and drink very expensive, hotel very isolated, the hotel runs a free daily bus to the city and back but not enough for the amount of people trying to use this service, so you book early, bars and restaurants in the hotel were lovely but be advised that they are all formal dress?? ( not ideal for a holiday with kids ) staff were lovely, just bring loads of money

We have just got back from this great hotel after celebrating your silver wedding anniversary there. we stayed in the Palm Tree Court Hotel which was absolutely great. The rooms were good and very large and the staff were very attentive, nothing was too much trouble. The bath robes and slippers were useful and they came in every night to turn down the beds and leave more water for you, which in that heat was very gratefully accepted. The shuttle bus was very good but it only cost 70 dirhams if you missed the bus or as happened to us the bus broke down coming back from the mall. went on a city tour which was excellent to see all the sites, the souks, the mosques and the markets but the weather was very hot and sticky (we had the hottest day of the year when we were there) but everybody was so nice. The price of drinks is very dear, at least £20 for a bottle of wine but in that heat water is the better option. Even though we booked the holiday with a travel agent we upgraded the room with the hotel by email which was far cheaper than by the travel agent and we had some nice touches, a lovely floral display for the anniversary, a bottle of wine, arabic sweets and fruit which was very nice. The spa was very good and very relaxing. my husband played golf once in that heat but the facilities were great and they come to collect you from your room with the clubs on a golf cart and bring you back. The shopping malls are good, the Ibn Batutta Mall seemed to have the best prices but the Mall of the Emirates is a must if only to see Ski Dubai. we had a lovely meal in the Lebanese resturant overlooking the ski slopes and on that occassion the wine was dearer than the food. The beach was so clean and the loungers were really great but with 65% himidity it was hard to sit out. so next time we return it will have to be in cooler times, February or November seem good and then we can perhaps eat out in the lovely resturants that are outside. Don't miss the buffet breakfat in the hotel it is really good it serves everything you can wish for to eat for breakfast.

So this was our second visit to the Jebel Ali, the last 2 years ago and has it changed.
My first report was glowing about the facilities and the views from the beach.
Now we have a 'tired' looking building, including the Palm Court and the beachscape is dominated by the construction that is The Palms, Jebel Ali.
Whilst the staff are still attentive and helpfull there is need for attention to public areas and a lick of paint.
The beach, whilst trying to remain idylic now shows the signs of new tidal flows and the rubbish that that brings. These were not there 2 years ago.
We have never been fans of 'staying put' in any hotel in the world we visit so cannot fully comment on the resturant, but the prices for drinks are very much higher than before. Check out an iced tea at the pool bar!
I also notice that the bus service has changed quite a bit and does not complete the city loop as it used to. Shame really because many people used this to see Dubai. Taxis out to the hotel whilst being plentiful are expensive, in distance terms so again be aware when considering the hotel.
So did we have a good time? Yes. Would we stay at the Jebel Ali again. Well sadly no, having returned and been disappointed then we would 'sacrifice' the tranquility and move closer to the city.
Remember, next door to the hotel will be the Dubai Marina developement, the Palms and not far away a new International airport.
OK it's progress but at a severe cost.

Dubai is a very busy destination, having stayed in the Jumeriah area before we wanted somewhere they have finished building

Downtown is construction city, Yet 30 minutes away is the Jebel Ali hotel.
Good resturants, great team of staff. all wanting to help and exceed on the service.Nice touches including preparing the beds in the evening and delivering water to your room

Whilst slightly old fashioned, the hotel has great grounds including Peacocks and a golf course, Horses, shooting and choice of swimmng pools, as well as the excellant beach.

Having just come back, the August heat can be hard work, but the large relaxing areas on the beach, coupled with the pools to cool down and of course the chilled water is delivered to you on your sun lounger.

Evenings do not cool much below 30 degrees, indoor Air conditioned resturants and the bus service to the massive air conditioned malls are the ideal way to spend the evenings.

Ideal for a one week relaxing holiday

we have just returned from a week's holiday in the Jebel Ali Hotel and really need to tell anyone thinking of going to Dubai that this is the place to go. not only is it an absolutely beautiful resort but the staff are extremely friendly and professional. The resort is situated about 40 minutes from the city, which was ideal as there is a lot of construction going on in Dubai at the moment so it was nice to be away from that. The hotel also run a courtesy bus to the city at certain times which was an added bonus. The hotel grounds were so well looked after as were the pool areas. The restaurants in the hotel served beautiful food and some of the restaurants have themed buffet nights, which included Indian night, seafood night, italian night etc. which was good value for money. the nightly entertainment was low key but the 2 girls and man playing in the plantation bar in the lobby were entertaining.

I have travelled to many countries and stayed at many hotels but i can safely say that this hotel stands out as the best i have ever been too. Top class in every way. Enjoy. I cant wait to come back there!

Spent four lovely says at this resort, everything about it was excellent, room very good. Didn,t matter that it was 30minutes away from Dubai there was no need for us to leave the resort . there is a courtesy Shuttle bus 4 times aday to Dubai. The restaurants at the resort were excellent. Very quiet unlike alot of the resorts in Dubai we shall certainly return there. The grounds are very inviting there are plenty of sun loungers!!

We have recently returned from Dubai and the Jebel Ali, it was a surprise holiday booked for my wife's birthday and a friend’s exam success. We chose the hotel on the strengths of the reviews from this site and also because it was away from the main building work. I have to say that the Jebel Ali exceeded our expectations.

We arrived and were upgraded to the Palm Tree Court, WOW, the rooms were amazing, very spacious and well fitted, surrounded by palm trees and running water, very luxurious.

From the moment we arrived the staff could not do enough for you, from the reception staff to the pool and bar staff they are excellent.

We ate in a different restaurant every night and were not disappointed by any of them, there is a good choice of food and it is all very good quality and not too expensive.

The drinks menu is good, cocktails for the girls and at certain times half price drinks during the happy hours well worth finding out the times.

I played golf with my mate while we were out there, having watched the TV in the room to see that Tiger Woods frequents this course it was a must! We are both amateur golfers but this did not concern anybody, we hired clubs, got our buggy and we were off, given complimentary water, apple and an ice cold towel(much needed). I was treated better on this course by the staff than any course in England where quite often you get looked down on.

The girls used the Spa and were again treated like royalty by the staff, with stunning views to look at while relaxing and the whole luxury experience I am surprised they came out!

Anybody who wants to go to Dubai, you will not go wrong booking this hotel, make sure you visit the WildWadi water park and the Mall of the Emirates which is open everyday from 10am. The development did not put us off at all and I would go back tomorrow if I could
