Review of Raffles Dubai
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Feb 17, 2019
We are very loyal to the Raffles, it's exceptional in everything.

Loved the location, cleanness, and how spacious the rooms are.

There is also a connected Mall with a kids play area and a supermarket.

We were hired to organise wedding reception for our clients at Raffles ballroom and due to consecutive events happening same day, we were given only few hours to setup our decoration. We received excellent support from team Raffles where they gave amazing service to both of their events and helped us transform the ballroom from corporate setup to wedding setup within 2 hours. We would like to specially mention the services of Mr. Ahmad Elbaz who was responsible for quickly turning around the ballroom from corporate to wedding setting and Mr. Ilyas who gave us great support throughout!

First time visit to Raffles as my wife, being a regular visitor, convinced me to join her on this trip. I was very impressed with all staff and the hotel’s extremely high service level. Congratulations to Management for focusing on this and many thanks to all the people that have made this visit a wonderful experience.
We’ll be back so in the meantime all the best from Miss Nadia and family:-).

Enormous room, great balconies, beautiful pool. Hotel close to the main road,so traffic quite noisy at night. Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice.
Afternoon tea a bit underwhelming in the Raffles Club lounge

Thank you for choosing Raffles Dubai and for sharing your feedback on Trip Advisor.

We apologize for the inconvenience you faced with regards to the traffic noise disturbance and afternoon tea in the Club Lounge. Rest assured that your comments are important to us and we will look into improving our product. We will take a closer look at the afternoon tea cycle at the Club Lounge.

That being said, I am glad that overall you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the buffet breakfast in Azur Restaurant.
