“Amazing Hotel, Amazing Value”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

If you are looking for a property in Dubai that is not over the top pricy and won't disappoint then JA Ocean View Hotel should be top of your list. It is just a block from the ocean and all rooms have an amazing ocean view. We had a room near the very top floor and it was wonderful to sit on the balcony and enjoy a beverage while watching ocean and beach goers. The restaurant choices are great, the location is great, the staff are very very attentive and the rooms are very clean and spacious with everything you could possibly need. We will definitely be going back.

I stayed at the hotel for one night with my husband. We live in Al Ain so we only stayed one night as a weekend break, however we are definitely going to be returning to this lovely hotel!

The interior of the hotel itself is very clean and fresh. Our room was absolutely stunning and as all rooms have an ocean view and a balcony I don't think you can go wrong.

The location is brilliant as you are 1 minute from the beach and lots of restaurants, cafés and shops.

We ate and drank within the hotel as we were there for one night and I have to say the buffet food at La Rivage was brilliant for both dinner and breakfast.

What stood out about this hotel in particular was the top notch customer service. From the moment we walked in the door, until the moment we left every single person; behind reception, in the restaurants and bars in the hotel, was really friendly, helpful and smiley. All of the staff made sure they were attentive without being too invasive!

I must give a particular mention to Sanjaya, who checked us in and out. He was extremely helpful, friendly, thoughtful and seemed genuinely interested.

I can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

Overall this hotel was superb, great location, superb standard, comfortable rooms, excellent food and very helpful staff. In particular the JA Ocean view has a fantastic pool, especially during the hot summer months this is exactly what you need. It is much larger than any of other hotels on the strip. I was especially impressed with the team working pool side, they really couldn’t do enough to ensure a pleasant stay. In particular I would like to thank Team leader Chandimal and his team for all there great efforts and service during our stay.

Please also note our room was only on the 5th floor and we had no issues with noise and had a great view.

I would recommend any of my friends and family to stay at JA ocean view.

Room Tip: Purchase a basic room and upgrade on arrival, usually a better rate.

A faultless experience. The hotel is superbly located in all respects with The Walk (most impressive) on your doorstep and a superb beach a short stroll away. Most of the work which previous reviews mentioned has ceased and we had a peaceful stay. To be honest, with the standard of soundproofing in the room, we would not have noticed it anyway and found endless pleasure in people/worker watching from a great height.

We stayed in this hotel in October 2013. Dubai was hot and there were lots of places to explore. The pool was nice with warm water but there was continuous repetitive music from the speakers.
They gave beach towels and a mat to walk to the beach across the road but there were no beds. The lifts were quite slow to go up 25 floors, but in the room they offered a pillow menu! Cost of drinks to be aware of: Beer 35d, Cocktail 70d = £10, £7 glass of wine. The Hotel restaurant meal costs 245d = £42ph (without drinks!). Happy hours are 4-7 and 11-12, but note that Islamic New Year is 3rd Nov so no alcohol anywhere. NOTE that there are strict clothing rules for women everywhere but nobody takes any notice of it! I bought specific clothes for this trip to cover shoulders and knees but needn't have bothered.

Dear sunluvva,

Thank you for your sharing your feedback on TripAdvisor following your recent stay at the JA Ocean View Hotel.

As we are committed to making a difference and creating memorable experiences for all our guests, I fully valued your positive feelings about your stay with us!

We take all our guest feedbacks seriously, which allows us to continuously improve. I can confirm that the management team and I are now reviewing the areas for improvement which you have highlighted.

In UAE, like other Muslim countries, there are certain restrictions in place which includes consumption of alcoholic beverages during the holy occasions and appropriate clothing in public areas, as a sign of respect to local culture. I have to correct your statement about the Islamic New Year, on which the actual date depends by local sightings of the moon; hence, it is not always be on the same date as you have mentioned. Also the meal for AED 245 in our Le Rivage buffet restaurant does include unlimited alcoholic beverage, on Fridays even cocktails and sparkling wine.

Once again, I would like to thank you for taking the time to post your review on TripAdvisor, and I hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back to JA Ocean View Hotel in the future.

We enjoyed our stay at the JA Ocean View, we had a nice view from our room we could see the Atlantis in the distance.
The hotel is located at the end of the walk which is still under construction but soon to be finished. Some good restaurants near by offering a varied choice, the breakfast at the hotel was delicious and had a good range.
The service from the hotel staff was very good. I would recommend having a drink at the bar on the top floor, some lovely night views and drinks we'rent badly priced.

Last April i met Balkrishna at the Ocean View in Dubai while i was waiting for a friend at the pool bar. I didn't feel like drinking anything but water because i don't really drink alcohol. But Balkrishna made me an amazing cocktail without any alcohol in it! I never tasted anything like it before : ). Besides that he offered me the most personal service i experienced in Dubai sofar. Even though he was also busy with other customers, he made my waiting time not bad at all! I would be happy to wait again for a while, with service like this : )
