My boyfriend and I stayed in the Al Manzil hotel for 2 days at the beginning of January and what can I say? From start to finish the hotel exceeded all expectations.
The staff and management were second to none. I became very ill at the end of my stay with food poisoning and when I had checked out I became even worse (I ended up in hospital once back in the UK - I would like to add that the poisoning was not from the hotel). My flight was not until very late that evening and although we had planned to spend the say out and about this was not possible as I was so ill. The hotel management, when they realised I was ill, did not hesitate to provide me a room at no extra cost so that I could rest before my flight. This was above and beyond the duty of the hotel.
The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful and in a fantastic location. Just across the road from the Dubai mall and the fountain displays with also views of the Burj Khalifa. The rooms were exquisite, in particular the bath in the room is great and very tasteful.
If I could fault the hotel on one thing it would be that the breakfast isn't as good as I've had elsewhere (we had breakfast on the morning we arrived in the Hyatt Regency) but that really did set expectations extremely high and the breakfast provided was still superb and was well above 4* expectations.
Overall I would highly recommend this hotel, especially for a romantic break. I will definitely would go back and stay at the Al Manzil again - something that I rarely would do.
