Husband & I just returned from 10 days holiday at The Amwaj Rotana Hotel having had a great stay there...
We are regular visitors to Dubai ( last visit was at LRM) & decided to try this one this time & we weren't disappointed. Excellent value - we were up on 24th floor- lovely view out to Gulf & hotels on Palm. - on the free half board basis with use of Club facilities which included free drinks with delicious selection of Canapes from 6-8pm nightly along with afternoon tea, free WiFi.& breakfast in club room if we wanted but to be honest there was a bigger selaction on offer in Horizon & more atmosphere each morning. Staff in Club were so very helpful & pleasant-Patrick & Arun & all the others whose names I forget but were just as efficient.We were welcomed us each evening like "old friends"
Hotel standards in general are very good and cannot complain as it was all good.
Rooms spotlessly clean & beds very comfortable,An excellent example of this was that I lost a small diamond earring under bed and was not looking forward to pulling bed out to retrieve said item,to find what "lurked" underneath as there are some horrendous stories about all manner of items found under hotel beds. The area didn't have any unexpected items hidden away underneath other than my earring and it was spotlessly clean-no evidence of dirt,or dust to be found, so well done to cleaning staff-your Management should be proud of you..
Food in Horizon was good & varied -would have enjoyed pork bacon as veal bacon very fatty & turkey bacon not the same as real bacon - but I do realise it is a Muslim country & pork is forbidden even though other hotels in Dubai do serve it for breakfast in a separate area away from other foods.
Ate in Benihana & it was okay-had dinner on the Saturday with the Japanese Chef in attendance demonstrating his skills? but I think it would be better to choose from the menu & have your own table as menu is varied.
Pool area very pleasant & although busy sun loungers were available. Bar at pool very pleasant to sit at either during daytime of for a nightcap in evening-lovely constant breeze as weather now cooling off a bit.
All in all a good hotel & we would definately return. We have already recommended it to some friends&7 they are now seriously considering changing previous plans to go there. There is still building going on around the area but it never bothered us nor did we hear any other guests complain - there is always going to be building in Dubai.
Oktoberfest celebrations were on in hotel for 3 days during our stay with a group from ?Germany ?Bavaria providing the music & a most enjoyable evening with excellent food & beer it was....
Because we felt our hotel was excellent value we decided to "push the boat out" & took a taxi to The Grosvenor House Hotel on our last night & had the most fantastic meal/curry at Indego- This was our 3rd time there over the years but it just gets better.
