Just got back from the GHH last Friday and had a fantastic time. The hotel is absolutely wonderful. We were met at the airport by the hotel car which we had pre arranged and taken to the hotel and got checked in straight away. Check in took place in the lounge in the lobby of the hotel, we were told to take a seat on the sofas and were given cold towels to freshen up and a lovely strawberry drink whilst we were waiting for the keys to our rooms, it was all very relaxing, no waiting around in ques. We were then taken up to our rooms. We were in a club level room, number 3304, a corner room with a very large balcony with excellent views of the beach, the Palm, the Burj and Dubai Marina. We had a lovely large bed which was so comfortable, sheets felt like silk! Plasma TV, workdesk with stationary. Bathroom was lovely and large, big bath and shower which were seperate (didnt use the bath unfortunately, wish I had now!), Bulgari toiletries, robes, slippers and lovely big bath sheets. My parents and brother and sister also in club level rooms, 3501 and 3502, 3501 is a corner suite with kitchenette, seperate living and bedroom areas and 2 bathrooms, no balcony. We were celebrating my dads 50th birthday so think they must have been upgraded to a suite because of that.
We headed straight up to the club lounge on the 44th floor which again was lovely, they serve pastries, tea, and soft drinks throughout the day, at 3pm afternoon tea was served which consited of delicious finger sandwiches (chicken with shallots/fresh egg mayo/beef/salmon etc), homemade scones with clotted cream and jam and your choice of tea or coffee and fresh juices. Then at 6pm canapes and drinks are served until 8pm. The canapes changed daily (both hot and cold, the tempura prawns are a must and also the fresh cooked crisps) and were absolutely delicious and you could choose whatever drink you fancied, we stuck with champagne every night, it would have been rude not to! I think we actually spent our first 2 days in Dubai chilling out in the club lounge eating and drinking! Would def reccommend the club level rooms with the access to the lounge. Canapes and fresh fruit were also delivered to the room daily, try the chocolate brownie, mmmmm!
The Hotel itself is very impressive, decor is lovely and its absolutely spotless, no expense spared even down to the plasma TVs in the toilets! There are fresh flowers in all the public places and the lobby is candle lit at night and looks beautiful. Also if you go outside at night and look at the hotel, its lit up in blue neon lights and looks very impressive. Service was outstanding. I made the hotel aware that we were celebrating my dads 50th while we were there and as i said before they were given a suite and on his birthday he received a birthday card, cake and bottle of wine, if you are celebrating an occasion be sure to let them know and im sure they will go out of their way to make to even more special. The pool area is lovely, padded sunbeds which are set up for you when you arrive at the pool and fresh fruit and water is brought over to you. The pool does get quite shady from about 2pm but its quite welcome to be out of the sun, if you want more sun then head over to the Meridian in the free shuttle and go down to the beach, i never quite beleived anyone when they said the water was like a bath, i lasted about 30 seconds in the sea as it actually felt hotter in the water than out! dont go in if you want to cool down!
Restuarant wise, we were on a half board offer which we got free when we booked our room with Trailfinders. This allowed us to eat in Sloanes, which is the buffet restaurant and again couldnt be faulted, food was lovely. Lots of different food stations, all food cooked to order, try the chicken tikka and nann bread! They also have oysetrs on the seafood section which were lovely, ask for them and you can have as many as you want. Sloanes is also where breakfast is served, again lots of different food stations with fruit, cooked breakfast, omlettes and eggs made to order, smoothies, pancakes, you name it they had it. If we didnt choose to eat in Sloanes then we could have a credit of 80 dirhams each to be used at any of the other restaurants on food only. The only other restaurant we ate in was The Bhudda Bar, again absolutely delicious, its quite load in there but very impressive, def a must see. Being on the club level meant by the time had numerous glasses of champagne and lots of canapes from 6-8, it came to dinner we couldnt actually fit much else in!
My mum and dad had treamtments in the spa, and said they were lovely, I used the sauna, steam and jaccuzzi and hot beds, it was empty in there and felt like you had exclusive access to it.
The GHH really had everything you could have wanted, you didnt really need to leave the hotel if you didnt want to. We didnt notice many small children while we were there, i think if you want something more for the kids then Le Royal Meridian (sister hotel) might be better. The only small niggle that bothered us was the background music in Sloanes, one CD seemed to be on repeat the whole week were were there and the music wasnt really appropriate as backgorund music, it could have been a little bit more chilled and varied. House music at breakfast with a hangover wasnt quite what the doctor ordered but other than that I couldnt fault the hotel one bit and will def be back again, already looking forward to that chilled glass of champagne in the club lounge!
