I had arrived to Dubai with everything except for my hotel information. (I was in such a rush I forgot my information/my dumb fault). The wifi in the airport wasn't working on my laptop. So one frustrated hour later I finally obtained the information. I took a cab ride from the airport which wasnt bad.
Upon arrival I was still in the vehicle and the concierge service retrieved our luggage from the vehicle and ushered us inside the hotel. Within minutes we were greeted with complimentary drinks and briefed on hotel ammenities and nearby attractions. You get a tropical feel once arriving in the lavish hotel.Its a calming. relaxing feel. Not alot of bright lights telegraphing how great the hotel ambiance is. It was just filled with great friendly staff. The entire staff was smiling and not bombarding you. And they spoke good english and were helpful.
The hotel offered plenty cost free shuttles at various times to the local Dubai mall which was 10 min walking distance as well as shuttles to Jumeirah beach and other locations. As well as Lexus and regular city cabs waiting on location to get you where you needed to be. I didnt eat at the hotel restaurant but I seen everything they offered and it looked good. The restaurant also has a great view of the pool and skyscrapers
The room was perfect. I chose the pool view which was a good choice. At night the local skyscrapers light the sky. The pool was very nice ( 5ft deep) with anything you needed nearby. We had a queen bed which was comfortable as well as a beautiful bath tub and shower. The room has everything you need and the room service is on point with their time and service. The cleaning services will visit frequently but they are fast and efficient.
For the cost of the hotel, the location and the experience was the best you can ask for. I would love to stay again at the Qamardeen hotel
