“Amazing!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2007

This place is truly amazing! I stayed at the Jebel Ali for 7 nights with my partner in April and after reading some of the reviews before we left we were a bit nervous but had no reason to be. I cant think of anything to fault this place. The staff were some of the friendliest people i have ever met. They couldnt do enough for us, we were treated like royalty. The beach was amazing and kept very clean, as were the swimming pools. I would give anything to be sitting at that swim up bar now! The food was fantastic. We particularly loved the italian...La Traviata. Very reasonably priced! we also enjoyed lunch at the captains bar on several occasions. The rooms were great, very clean and we had a lovely room attendant! Air conditioning was very helpful after a day in the sun! We had to save for a year to go here but it was well worth it! I am a very fussy person so for me to find nothing wrong with the jebel ali is something astonishing! :-) CANT WAIT TO GO BACK!!!!

Well what can I say ! What a fantastic place,from the time we got there until the time we left we were spoiled rotten.It was our first visit to Dubai and the Jebel Ali and I can assure you it wont be our last.There was nothing to complain about other than I wish they sold strongbow in the swim up bars! The swim up bars were great and welcoming in the mid-day sun a special welcome to Stephen who was very polite and always had the drinks ready for us.We were a bit apprehenive about being so far out of town but in the end we were glad as it was very relaxing and it was easy enought to get to the malls via the shuttle bus or taxi as there were six of us it was very cheap.On one occasion the taxi driver offered to stay outside the mall and wait for us because he wanted to be assured we would get a people carrier. He was going to wait free of charge where in the UK would that happen?The people were amazing as was the scenery and all aspects of the hotel the heat was sometimes unbearable especially if you wanted to eat outside in the evening.,but hey thats why we went.If you are thinking of going to the Jebel ali dont hesitate book now!

Well what can I say about the Jebel Ali resort, apart from it is an excellent place to stay at. It is located about 45 minutes from the airport and is no where near the building sites of dubai. The resort itself is big, the rooms are nice and the staff are helpful. There is a lot of thngs to do at the resort, squash, table-tennis, tennis, golf, etc. If you don't fancy doing anything there are multiple pools for your relaxation and enjoyment. We went with a group which included kids/babies and the hotel was nearly perfect. The only critiscm is that the evening ,meals can prove to be tricky with the kids and some of the resteraunt staff pointed out that the resteraunts in the evening have a no children policy and that they were making an exception....apart from that i would certainly come back to the Jebel Ali.

We returned from the Palm tree Court at Jebel Ali two days ago after a nine night stay. I have to agree with virtually all other posters, it was a fabulous place.
From the moment we arrived (at 8am) we were made very welcome. The two sea-facing suites we had booked were not quite ready when we arrived but we were in them by 10 am (even though check in wasn't until 2pm). The suites were very large, clean and well decorated. We were on half board and eat most nights in La Fontana. The selection and quantity of food was impressive and even though our two teenage lads are very picky eaters, they found plenty to their taste. The two lads were well occupied with the golfing and also with the shooting range. The shooting range is very impressive. Each of the lads had an instructor with them at all times and by the end of four days were pretty good shots. Security is reassuringly very tight at the shooting range. We eat one night at Shooters, the restaurant at the range. We weren't overly impressed with it due to the very slow service (2 hours for 2 courses) even though the place was only a quarter full. The food was reasonable and the waiters were very friendly when they did eventually come to us. Not a huge deal really. One night in La Fontana, we had booked a table but it wasn't ready when we arrived. The manager escorted us to the bar upstairs and gave us a free tab to order any drinks we wanted until the table was ready. That was a nice touch as we were only delayed about 15 mins.
The weather was very hot as expected (40-43C) but we were well able to cope with it and it certainly didn't hold us back. The sea was very warm, like a very warm bath - lovely!
We went to a couple of shopping malls on the courtesy shuttle bus - Mall of the Emirates, which is huge and also Ibn Battuta Mall which is still very big but more manageable to get around.
Every little touch that I could think of was provided in the hotel, including some that I would never have thought of. Both the room attendants and guest relations checked regularly that we weren't wanting for anything - and we weren't.
We will be going back - it's just fabulous.
One word of caution - we flew into and ouy of Abu Dhabi airport, but the taxi driver taking us back to the airport got us nearly into Dubai airport before I could impress upon him that we were going to the wrong place! After a quick U-turn and very fast journey back we made it in plenty of time, so just be sure the driver doesn't assume it's Dubai airport you are going to if it's Abu Dhabi you need.

the beach and pool areas fantastic ate in italian/white orchid and shooters all good value for money - wine not too expensive either - we had a lovely time here and were glad of the peace and quiet -went into dubai centre 1 night it took 2 1/2 hours in a cab nightmare!!! never went again. normal trip to burge and jumeriah beach hotelsor wild waddi takes about 30 mins and about £10 in a cab or you can get shuttle bus to the emirates mall and jump in a cab across to them its worth a visit but you have to make an appointment to get into the burge! but its worth seeing inside!! anyway back to the jebel ali - golf rooms very nice the restaurant for breakfast needs updating big time! the choices are excellent - they also have a carvery at night but we didnt bother as the room has no atmosphere at night and all chairs and tables need a good refurb but it was okay for breakfasts - one other warning beware of the russians - there were a lot there and whilst most kept to themselves there were some not very pleasant who never smiled and stared at you if you smiled at them as if you were from another planet - they never said thank you if you held the door open for them and they let their kids run riot in some of the restaurants - very uncomfortable apart from that had a fab holiday

My wife and I stayed at Jebel Ali for 2wks at the start of July for our honeymoon. We chose the resort on the basis that it seemed the most 'out of the way' hotel in Dubai, and it was a great decision.

We were offered an upgraded room, but stuck with our original allocation on the 1st floor as it had a nice big terrace with furniture for us to sit out on. After downing the complimentary Champagne, Strawberries and traditional sweets, we took a walk around the resort. Every aspect is simply stunning, from the pools, to the gardens, the golf course to the beach, the restaurants and bars to the marina - everywhere we looked we were impressed and even more positive about what a fab choice we made.

Other than these aesthetic elements, the area in which Jebel Ali really excels itself is the friendliness of the staff. Nothing is too much trouble, and everything is done with a genuine smile and courtesy. We have to make particular mention of Andrew, the Ibn Majid Coffee House manager, and one the waiters in La Traviata (and on the beach) - Njenga. These guys were awesome, and so welcoming. (By comparison, we booked for lunch at the Burj al Arab during our stay and, while there's no doubt it is impressive, the staff are polite, but not as warm or genuine as their Jebel Ali counterparts).

Food is awesome too, and every taste is accounted for due to the themed buffets.

We could spend a lot longer describing other aspects of this resort that added to our enjoyment, but we'll leave it at this - Jebel Ali is a great hotel, in a perfect location and with lovely staff that really made all the difference. Highly recommended.

Stayed at the Jebel Ali with some friends for a girlie holiday for 5 days and wow it was lovely.....
was a bit worried that we would too far away from town, but to be honest it was nice to be somewhere peaceful and quieter than the hussle and bussle of the city. Only 30 mins cab ride.

Great food - lots of different restaurants to try. Lovely rooms - we stayed on the 5th floor, so got all the flowery perks aswell. Staff very friendly, do the aqua areobics coz that was fun - instructor very enthuisastic. Great cocktails at the swim up pool bar.

Weather was hot, but the beach has a breeze which cools you off. Sea water was like a bath - never experienced the sea to be so warm before.

Cant wait to return with my family, they'd love it.
Thanks Jebel Ali for a brilliant holiday xxxx
