“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2007

What a fantastic place!! Service, hotel, staff all brilliant and of course the weather!!! Would definately go back - even though its a little far out shuttles buses are put on to the main attractions so other than go to the city centre we saw everything. Would definately recommend the desert safari riding over sand dunes in a 4x4, sand skiing and then bbq with belly dancing!! also wide wadi is a great day out. cant fault the room at all - everything was just perfect and cant wait to book my next trip maybe next time id book a few nights in the city aswell just for the experience!!!

Where do i start with this hotel?
Obviously the countdown to my holiday was very exciting and the more I wanted to leave cloudy England the higher my expectation got of Dubai as a whole and the hotel. When we arrived we definately weren't dissappointed. As you enter the secluded grounds of the hotel you're greeted by peacocks and beautiful gardens before eventually reaching the grand hotel. From then the amazing service and experience of staying at this hotel starts. When we checked into the room we found a huge bouncy bed, large cupboards, desk and big mirror. In other words everything you need. The bathroom is average for a 4/5* hotel. Two tiny dissapointments no Iron and board in the room, we had to bug the housekepper everyday to put it in the room, also although we didnt watch much TV out there when we did there was hardly anything on.....meaning no decent channels, unless your german!!!
Pools are gorgeous, 3 large pools on the resort, 2 with pool bars. step off the pool area to the grassed area that leads you to the beach, all within 20sec walk away.....perfect!! I'm guessing that the previous reviews were a bit older than us as the beach hut was never mentioned. But on site you can doughnut ride, kayak, banana boat ride, water ski and loads of other stuff but they were the highlights. All of them were really inexpensive in comparison to other places i've been to e.g £5-£12 each activity.
The resturants were lovely, an italian, buffet, chinese and others we didnt get round to. Breakfast has loads of options for all tastes. Bars were peaceful and beautiful, a majority outside therefore has great views or a great atmosphere. A personal fav for us was the plantation bar. chilled out arabic music in the background, bedlike sofas under a canope. We chilled there nearly everynight for final drinks of the evening and shisha.
An other thing other reviews failed to mention was the option of night swimming, the pool bar stayed open till midnight and the weather is perfect for a dip. The grounds in the evening are gorgeous, lit up gardens and pool. Very romantic to say the least.
Me and boyfriend absolutely loved this hotel. Unfortunatly it is quite a way from the city center....about £10 per way. not really worth it unless planning a big night out.
If you're going to dubai to completely chill out than this hotel is perfect and it will keep you completely entertained but if you do want to see the city, shopping and nightlife i'd suggest doing what we did, stay at Jebel ali for 4nights then move to a City hotel for the final 2/3 nights......it worked out perfectly.
This Hotel definatly comes as advertised, luxurious resort. I would say the resort was 5star and the rooms 4star. But all the same it was an amazing place and i'm definatley looking forward to go back.

Just returned from a 6 night stay at the Jebel Ali and had a fantastic time. The resort, staff and location are out of this world. The staff couldnt do enough for you, so much so they wouldnt allow you to lay up your own sunbed and parasol. The staff are always pleasant and have a smile on their faces.

The gardens, pools and beach are immaculate and are constatntly being cleaned, cut or groomed. While other posters have stated that the rooms are long in the tooth I found mine to be of a high standard. They may not be as new as other properties in Dubai but the quality is good and they are very clean.

The hotel has provides a lot of nice touches such as bathrobes and slippers, free bottled water with the turn down service and Elemis products in the bathrooms. We also found resort relations to be very helpful and informed with good advice on vacations. We booked the Dinner Cruise Bateaux Dubai which was amazing; both culinary wise and scenic. It was usual resort dinner prices which was about £40 a head for 4 courses but a bottle of wine which costs £5 in supermarkets back home will set you back £30 - £40 pounds, but we found this consistent across other places.

The Spa treatments are also first rate and of a similar price to those in the UK. The spa settings and facilities a 5 star but unfortunatley you can only use them when you have booked a treatmnet. The resort also has plently of activites for the energetic such as Pool Aerobics, Beach Volleyball and football. They cater for all levels and I found a welcome break from the sunbathing.

Overall I couldnt find a fault with this resort, I did hear someone complain about how slow the lifts were operating one day but I guess they hadnt come for a chill out like I had which this resort truly allows you to do. I would recomend this resort to anyone, it maybe quite a bit out of the centre of Dubai but it isnt surrounded by the building site and sight of cranes that down town is experiencing. Resort shuttles can take you to the main Malls and the water parks and taxis are very cheep also. Only cost us 130 AED from the airport to the resort. The hotel are happy to arrange this for 150 AED.

Point of warning, the dress code for many of the resorts resterants require men to ware trousers and a full shoe eg no tailored shorts and sandals. This caught a few people out and limited their dinner choices. Whilst I dint see anyone turned away from a resteraunt they do ask that you respect the local custom of dressing appropriatley for dinner.

If you are going soon you will have a wonderful but very hot time, average day temps were around 42 degrees C which dropped to about 28 degrees C at night. Brilliant place get it booked!

Just got back from 6 nights staying at the Jebel Ali Hotel. We stayed in a Golf View Standard Room and were pleasantly surpised at the size and comfort of the room. The room facilities were great - Elemis Toiletries, Bathrobes, Slippers, Turn Down Service, Fresh Fruit and Bottled Water supplied every day. The room was kept spotlessly clean and was checked twice a day. The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful (especially the concierge) and very courteous, nothing was too much trouble. The grounds of the hotel were fantastic, plenty of sunbeds and room to lounge about without feeling on top of one another. We used the Shooting Club, which we booked through the hotel and the facilities there were great. We used the shuttle bus to get us to the malls which would take about 40 minutes and would then take a taxi to go on into Dubai centre. We didn't have a problem with taxis bringing us back to the hotel and this would cost approx. 80 - 120 dirhams depending on the time of day. A trip must do is the Bateaux Dubai again this can be booked through the concierge, to see the Dubai Creek lit up at night whilst dining on a 4 course meal is not to be missed! I would definitely recommend the Jebel Ali Hotel to family and friends and hope to go back some day.....

I struggle to understand if I actually stayed at the same hotel, based on some of the below reviews!
I live in Dubai and wanted to get out of the house for a day or two to propose to my girlfriend. Dubai hotels were all full, but managed to get a room here with a 'golf course view', and it was not cheap.

I play golf here often, so had hoped that the service and quality would reflect what is possibly the nicest 9 holer course I have ever seen. Afraid not. The check in was a chore and took forever. The room was small (but adequate) and had no view at all.

The service at the 'Captains Bar' by the beach is like ordering a meal from Manuel in Fawlty Towers, and the beach service is not much better. We ordered fruit cocktails on the beach, and when we asked to return them (we were given fruit milkshakes - not what we asked for and I am allergic to diary) the waiter acted like a teenager who has had his toys taken away.
Also none of the drinks ordered throughout the hotel were cold enough. Warm beer, warm cokes (served with 2-3 ice cubes only). Not ideal in 36 degrees C heat.

The asian fusion restaurant was pretty good though, again service is average (better than at the beach) and portions were very sizeable.

Overall, this is not a 5 star hotel. Our standards are high yes, but only because we have stayed and spent time at many of Dubai's hotels. It is a 4 star stay, at 5 star prices.
You do get a golf discount and a choice of swimming pools however, if this balances it for you.

We stayed here for four days in April 07 and loved every minute. The staff were so friendly and couln't do enough for the guests. It has three pools, loads of sunbeads by them, the beach or in the gardens. The life guards even cleaned your sunglasses for you!!The food was lovely and average price for a five star resort. The Arabian themed bar was a beautiful setting.

Althougth the resort was a good 30 minute taxi ride from the centre of Dubai taxis are very cheap there so it wasn't a problem.

Dubai itself was amazing and four days was not enough. I will be returing next year. I absolutley loved the place. Go for afternoon tea in the Burj - about £50 each but well worth it. It really was out of this world.

We have just returned from The Jebel Ali Spa Resort and it is fantastic!! Cannot praise the location, staff, rooms, food enough.
The hotel is approx 45 minutes from Dubai centre but at approx £10 for a taxi for 4 to the city centre who cares. There is a shuttle bus
which is free so its easy however you decide to travel.

We visited the souk area close to the Burj hotel and you could spend a full day in the immediate area, there is lots of shops and plenty of places to eat.

Also visited the Emirates Mall which has loads of shops and an indoor ski resort (incredible)

We did the jeep safari with Alpha Tours, one of the best trips we have ever done anywhere in the world, only advice is don't have too much to eat before you go as you will possibly feel sick after the dunes!!!!!

All in all, a fantastic hotel with superb staff and great food.

We are going back in October.
