“Fabulous Return”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Have just returned from another 10 day holiday at the fabulous Dar Al Masyaf. We decided to return again this year after having spent a fantastic holiday there last year. We weren't disappointed in any way, still an amazing experience made all the better by all the members of staff, nothing is too much trouble for them and they all go out of their way to ensure that everything to do with the holiday is memorable. Special thanks to Shanelle and Marie in Khaymat Al Bahar, the only place for breakfast. Also many thanks to the brilliant butlers, Jennifer, Samson, Raj and Ismail who made our stay in Villa 28 very pleasant. All the restaurants involved with the half board deal were excellent but a little disappointed that The Wharf was being changed to Mexican. We found that the Italian restaurants, Segretto and Carnevale were particularly very good. We hope to return again at the same time next year to this wonderful place.

Room Tip: We have stayed in Villa 11 which is located very near the beach. This year we stayed at Villa 28 roo...

Just stayed for 1 week at the Dar Yr Masyaf. I would like to mention a special member of staff on the beach who was constantly happy and made our visit more enjoyable, Shafan thank very much!!, I would like to mention that the resort although stunning is very very laid back . Very few places to get a drink after dinner. Just be aware that it is very very expensive for everything. A pint of lager was around £9 average bottle of wine £60. Steak sandwich medium pizza and two pints £56. You need plenty of money to stay at this resort, but it is 5 star standard of hotel. Staff were very friendly rooms cleaned twice daily.

Room Tip: Villas are all in good location, can't really go wrong.

This is our third stay at the Dar al Masyaf and won't be our last. We take a taxi from the airport and as soon as we see those golden horses at the entrance we know we are in for a great time. All the staff are superb, too many to name individually that shone out but Risool on the beach was a star!
Our room in villa 13 was as expected, superbly clean and well presented. Housekeeping, butlers, abra and buggy drivers were on the ball during our stay.
The beach was pristine as usual although lacking in the little treats we used to have, not sure if Jumeirah have cut back or we were unlucky to miss them.
Whatever the reason it will not stop us returning.

Stayed here for a couple nights for a layover on the way back from the Maldives and Sri Lanka and we wished we'd stayed longer. We were in a villa courtyard room with a private pool. Quiet location and very peaceful. We could have used the golf carts, but enjoyed walking throughout the property. The service was quite good and everyone was helpful and courteous - though they seemed a bit concerned to see us walking everywhere. I guess people don't do that often :-)

Our stay was fabulous - we enjoyed relaxing by the pool and ocean and sampling food from the dizzying array of restaurants. Room was beautiful with nice patio to enjoy the weather (December is the perfect time to go). Easy for us to get a cab to visit the Burj Khalifa and nearby malls and restaurants. Only issue was the check-in at our villa took forever since there was a large extended family there before us and only one staff member who could do check-in. Not ideal when you've just come off a long flight. Perhaps they could have noticed this and rang for someone from a next door villa to help us.

In any case, we really enjoyed our stay and will be back soon - next time for longer!

Just got back from 5 nights at Dar al Masyaf and couldn't believe how good it was. This was our first time in Dubai and we absolutely loved it.The quality of the hotel, the staff and the food was fantastic. We couldn't fault the place in any way.
We stayed half board with the Summer flavours package in Villa 23. When you book into one of the villas you have a butler who looks after the people staying in that particular villa. Villa 23 has 9 rooms and so the butler looks after the people in those 9 rooms, and believe me are you looked after at the Dar al Masyaf. Your butler will sort out anything you need, nothing is a problem. The maid comes in to your room of a morning to clean and comes back again of an evening to turn down your bed and tidy your room again. The rooms are huge, the bathroom is huge and the beds are huge and of fantastic quality. We used a number of different restaurants in the Jumeirah group of hotels and the quality of them is exceptional, it was like going out for a top class meal every night. I would particularly like to mention our butler Faisal, what a lovely person he was, he was an interesting and intelligent man and a fantastic host of our happy hour drinks between 6 and 8 pm. Faisal was an absolute credit to the hotel as were all of the staff we came across. We visited the Burj Khalifa, the Wild Wadi, the Dubai Mall the Emirates Mall, and also the old Souk during our stay making use of the excellent Dubai Metro. Dubai and the Dar al Masyaf are a great place to holiday with the hotels beach, pools and grounds all faultless, the waterways and the abra's for getting around the hotel make it really special. We are already planning our next visit to Dubai and hopefully to the Dar Al Masyaf. Well done Dubai and well done Jameirah and the excellent staff you have working for you. If you get the chance to go to this hotel or any of the Jumeirah hotels jump at it i'm sure you will love it. I don't write reviews but for this hotel I made an exception.

Stunning setting. The villa environment made us feel very special and pampered. Nothing was too much trouble to our friendly and attentive staff making it a holiday to remember. Would love to repeat the experience and would definately recommend this magical place.

Room Tip: A room in the villa looking over the waterway is most pleasant.
