“Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

Dar Al Masyaf and the staff once again provided the most amazing memorable experience. This was our 3rd stay in the resort and the staff and service was better than ever. Everything from our housekeeping to our butlers the service in the various restaurants was outstanding. From the minute we arrived everything was arranged and we were taken to our villa. We were greeted with a very warm welcome. We met up with our previous butler Ms Priyanka Tyagi and manager Mr Ankit Malik, who were both very welcoming and wanted to ensure we had a fantastic stay. Our butlers in villa 4 were amazing and the service they provided was excellent, particularly Freddie who made sure we had everything we needed. We also thought that the service from the waiters on the beach was also fantastic. Sreejith and Bonny provided an excellent service and they made sure we had all that we required. We were also highly impressed with Tortuga, MJ's, Carnival and one of our favourites Segreto. The service in these restaurants was amazing and the food was world class.We would definitely recommend anyone who wants an amazing resort, service and fantastic food to stay at Dar al Masyaf. We cannot wait to return to the resort and are already missing everyone. Fantastic stay, excellent service and overall an amazing place to visit.

Room Tip: Villas on beachfront are best for location.

Unfortunately i only had 1 nights stay here but oh wow, this place is unbelievable, the rooms in the villa are huge and beautiful, the whole complex is beautiful and i could have spent hours just wandering around.
Free alcohol in the villa from 8-9 pm was a big bonus.
Free access to Wild Wadi with travel by golf buggy each way.
Close access to the beach with the beautiful view of the Burj Al Arab next to it.
Being able to travel around the whole place by Abra boat is a brilliant experience.
I just loved this place, i must stay here again.

Our 3 night stay in Villa 11 was exceptional and the butler service just topped it off.
The staff throughout the resort are extremely hospitable and the Buggy and Abra service is great.
This resort is amazing and it is hard to make yourself actually get out and about and do one of the many other activities on offer in Dubai.
The beach is beautiful with white, white sand and beautiful blue water. The Souk is fun to walk around and there are so many restaurants to chose from.

Beautiful hotel, lush landscape and courteous staff. The hotel is massive in size with beautifully appointed suites. The bathrooms are huge and the toiletries provided are fabulous.

The beach and pool are beautiful and if you are looking for a relaxing place to vacation in Dubai this is it.

My friends and I were apprehensive that we had made a mistake going back to the same place to try and recapture the wonderful holiday we had last year at the Dar al Masyaf .
It was disappointing that we could not have our same villa (no,26) , as it was being refurbished , however our wish was granted and we arrived at villa 15 , which turned out to be just lovely , near an Abra station , a balcony overlooking the waterways , and a lovely pool .
We arrived quite late in the evening and were greeted warmly , with lovely cool flannels , and the most delicious green apple juice . The hotel is just stunning , right from the minute your car passes through the gates , sweeping up the drive past the gold leaping horses , you know you have reached paradise . The ever gracious butlers opening the car door for you , it is a privilege to stay
there .
We like to take breakfast at the Khaymat al Bahar , it is in a Devine location overlooking the beach and turquoise blue ocean . On arrival a butler told us it was closed luckily we found out it was not , panic over .
We will now come to the excepts which disappoint me to have to report .
There were too many different butlers in our villa , they changed every day , hence no raport or continuity . We so missed not having our delightful Pasha , our butler from last year . He helped us by suggesting things to do , places to go . He made us feel more than welcome and nothing was too much trouble . This year not many smiles and we had to ask for everything The sundowner was a rugby scrum , with far too many children . We feel this should not be a baby sitting service , re:parents sending down very young children ( 5yrs) on there own , whilst they take there drinks to their rooms . This needs to be dealt with by management .
Our room one day was not made up until gone 5pm , we returned to unmade beds etc after a day out . Then to top it all they came to turn down our beds one hour later , we were getting ready to go out , not to bed .
We had a late flight home and needed to be at the hotel until 11pm . We had to vacate our villa
by 2pm , or we would incur a charge of £120 ! There is a special lounge to go to for late departures . Oh dear , there were three of us to change from wet swim suits , shower , change to go out for supper , and then return to change to fly home . With all our luggage packed in store until our departure , we had lockers which only took a travel bag . Not 5star ! The shower was stuck in a small toilet area , it gets worse , There was only one bathrobe , and three of us . We asked for two more and was totally ignored ,again , not 5star . We feel the hotel lets itself down incredible here and seriously needs to address the problem .
However we shall return one day because we still love Dar al Masyaf . Hopefully when we do we can have the refurbished villa26 , and a happy smiling butler or two .And a much more luxurious departure lounge .

Room Tip: Villa 26 , room 9 , from there you can see the Burgh al Arab . Failing that Villa 15 room 9 makes a...

We have stayed here many times and will return again soon. It is fantastic luxury for couples and families alike (we have been pre kids and with you children) and we love it here. The facilities are great, including the souk, visiting the other hotels and wild wadi and the staff are amazing. Our butler Zubin was amazing and helped make our stay.
It was hot in July but the rooms are perfect as are the large choice of pools that you can cool down in.
In summary you would be mad to go elsewhere and my family and I all love it here.

I have stayed in many resorts and hotels worldwide, but quite simply this is the best resort I have ever stayed! My wife and I returned to the Jumeirah brand after staying at JBH last year and our visit to DAM exceeded our expectations.

Irene, who was our butler, was fantastic. The half board option is incredible value for money. The staff throughout the resort are extremely hospitable. The buggy service is great, especially in the heat. The Abra's are fun and unique. In terms of location, it's close to the city centre but also far enough away from it to have that feeling of balance. I don't there there is quite another resort such as the Madinat anywhere else in the world. This is the closest thing you will get to a 6 star resort.

We stayed in the Gulf Villa and will certainly be looking to return soon!

Room Tip: Gulf Villa's area great with close access to the beach, but with the buggy and Abra service, and...
