Our week long stay at the Jebel Ali left us refreshed, rejuvenated and utterly content. The hotel is based approximately 30 minutes from the city of Dubai, out of the bustle and based in the otherwise deserted countryside. It is an oasis in the midst of dry land. The hotel has 5 stars and is worth it. My boyfriend and I (both late 20s) booked a sea view room as an upgrade from a golf view room. The extra money was worth it. The view each day and night from our little balcony was breath taking. The hotel itself has great facilities. From endless bars and restaurants to recreation activities. We used the tennis courts a few evenings which are maintained to a high standard. We had to hire the tennis rackets to play at a cost of 15 Dirham per racket but were not charged for them when we got our bill. I reckon they charge if some one breaks the racket or loses a ball as opposed to charging everyone. We never used the golf course as Im not a good player, however, my boyfriend watched in envy as other players availed of the high quality 9-hole course There are a number of pools to chose from to lie out in the blistering sun, however, we returned each day to the beach. The white sands and the palm trees allowed us to totatlly indulge and take advantage of the heat. Staff (who are exceptionally polite) are on hand to serve drinks. On a couple of the days by the beach there was work going on on the beach itself which caused a bit of noise but nothing we couldnt handle. If the heat becomes too much then one can relax in the sunset lounge, or go to the spa. The spa was expensive and so never made use of it but Im sure that would be just as enjoyable. During the week we actually had no reason to leave the hotel as everything was there. However, a trip on safari to the desert is well recommended.

The only downside of our experience was that our early morning flight had us arriving at the hotel at 6am. We were not able to get to our room until 1pm. Apparently if we had contacted the hotel directly to tell them our arrival time then we would have gotten in earlier. I appreciate our negative experience was not the fault of the hotel but it definately tainted our first impressions. After a sleepless night on the plane it was very difficult to hang around waiting until the room was ready. Therefore, the moral of the story is if youre arriving early, email the hotel!

Went with 3 friends for 3 nights and had adjoining TWIN rooms after being upgraded to Sea-View rooms. Clean, smart rooms with balconies overlooking the sea and huge Jebel Ali Palm development. Very hot time of year to go though but A/C worked very well.

Breakfasts great - specially "Full English". Hotel meals pretty expensive - 5 star prices.

Polite, professional service from the staff.

Bit far from town but shuttle buses to major shopping centres like Mall of Emirates. Taxi to downtown Dubai around £13 o/w.

Great pools, beach - the warmest sea I have ever swam in!!
Also good gym in the Club.

3 nights not long enough to really enjoy this place especially if you are a golfer as well.

What a place!! We went with friends who were on their third visit to the Jebel Ali.. we were not disappointed!! Normal holidays for us are shopping in Florida so we had high expectations... this place makes Florida look silly!!

From the moment we arrived the service was overwhelming, we have never experienced such fantastic service..even in Florida!! The hotel is grand, spotless and perfectly situated away from the busy town were building works is everywhere!!

Found a fantastic resturant in the mall next door to Wadi Wadi and The Burj.. it was called The Meat Co - worth a visit if you like steaks!!

The weather was a little too hot in June...if it can ever be too hot!! The evenings were a little uncomfortable if you attempted the hotels fantastic buffet bbq's outdoors.. hot and sticky even at midnight but the food and service made it all seem worth it!!

We went to the fireworks in the desert (last night before the weather gets too hot).. it was an experience but again it was made uncomfortable by the evening heat.. 37 degrees in the evenings..crazy!!

In summary, the hotel is perfect for almost everyone and we will definately be counting down the weeks until we can visit again!! Thanks Jebel Ali!!!

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.
