Just back from 6 nights at the Ocean View and was very impressed with the hotel facilities but in particular the friendliness of the staff. Without exception they were all helpful, courteous and nothing was too much trouble. Prady who welcomed us on arrival after an overnight flight and immediately offered us breakfast and came out at 5am on the morning we left to thank us and wish us a good journey home deserves special mention. The reviews generally say that the pool is in shade most of the day and I would say to anyone thinking of going that this is an exaggeration. The sun moves round between the surrounding tall buildings and shadows are cast for varying periods but to be honest the times when you are in shade are a welcome relief from the fierce sun and is probably a much healthier way to sunbathe anyway! The noise from the building site and the cars outside did not really bother us and although we were only 8 floors up we weren't aware of it at night at all. Room was superb and the free bottles of water provided twice daily was a really nice touch. Breakfast offers a vast array of food choices and was delicious. The snack menu at the pool deck was lovely and reasonably priced.
I was visiting Dubai to see my son who was playing in a band in a hotel in Bur Dubai. He spent time with us at the Ocean View and he was so impressed he wished that his band could play there instead. Ocean View take note if you are looking for a resident band Blind Vinyl is the band to book!!
