We returned to Dubai for our third trip but the first to this hotel. We were made to feel very welcome and the staff did so much to be helpful and friendly. We paid for the club room access and had amazing views down the walk, the beach, the palm and the construction site from the 25th floor. I would reiterate that the construction didn't impact on our stay at all and it is quite a fascination to watch the scale of it! Our stay included a super buffet breakfast that could be taken in either the main buffet or in the club room, then complementary high tea and pre-dinner drinks. The hotel provided a great beach bag including mat, towels and sun umbrella for the beach. The pool and baby pool were both enjoyed a lot by our family. The pool is mainly in the shade, except for between 12-3 (in October) which suited us fine. We used the babysitting service one evening and that worked out really well too and not as expensive as some of the other hotel we had been to in Dubai.
We used the shuttle to visit the Jebel Ali resort and we also walked to the metro station to get the efficient metro to the Dubai Mall/Mall of the Emirates. We would use the metro more if we wanted to explore more and would even use it to get to the airport if we didn't have children with us.
Overall we were very impressed with the Ocean View and it gave us the week we wanted, warm weather, easy access to beach, pool and the restaurants on the walk and great friendly service.
Would love to return.
