Editorial review:

This ultra expensive hotel has luxury décor with gold, blue, and deep red with silk and rich velvet everywhere. The sleeping rooms may make you think you are in someone’s visions of an 18th century Paris or Vienna. However, the service is disappointing.

Verified Reviews:

  • Lovely lobby - Aquarium restaurant is amazing - It was too pricey
  • Bed was huge - Furnished beautifully - Amazing bathroom
  • Flat screen tv - Air conditioning is perfect - No rain-shower
  • Pool area was small - Panoramic views all around - Room was great
  • Restaurant near by - Valet parking - Fantastic staff

        • Older travelers

          It was amazing from the welcome to the check in inside the suite, the view when they opened the blinds to the impeccable service from the staff, the fabulous surroundings and granduer. We stayed one night but arrived 7am and got straight into our suite so we managed to make the most of one night by having a day and a half in the hotel. We popped out to do a little shopping as this was a stop over on the way home to Australia and had to pick up some last minute gifts but could not wait to get back to the hotel and make the most of it. Would stay again in a heartbeat. We managed to get a great deal on a panaromic view suite and had lunch and dinner there so really made the most of it. Loved it!!!

          The only down side was that it was a religous holiday and they could not serve alcohol from 7pm. To us it was not a big deal as we had a month in Europe and had our fair share of alcohol but with only the one night it would have been hard if this was a singular special trip eg. anniversary or birthday etc. Some people did seem upset in the Restaurant. Maybe the hotel should advertise these holidays to allow people to arrange different dates if possible instead of advising on check in.

          Excellent service and luxury beyond anything I have ever seen previously, coupled with personalised service that was more than I ever dreamed of

          Incredibly expensive even for every day items - E.G. bottle of water - 50aed. Burger - 200aed. The personal butler started to get annoying - I don't need to be escorted to my room every time I go there, though I suspect that most of the guests like this attention, I just wanted to relax and found it difficult to do so.

          The views and the size of the suites.

          The staff all seem to be beaten into submission. They try to be friendly and helpful but there are no real smiles and little desire to help from most of them. The food quality is way below average for a luxury hotel and the price is heads above all hotels. The facilities are overly glitzy yet fit. The suites are fantastic. The problem as I see it is the management. Their staff are obviously very unhappy and that carries over to how they staff interacts with the customer. I would not stay at this hotel again no matter how low the rate was.

          The style of room it was very nice and comfortable for me

          Every thing was wonderful but the price was little bit expensive and the music was not that good. i mean there is only one channel for arabic music, i think will be better if they can provide more music.

          we arrived very early in the morning from a long flight and we were really tired and wanted to sleep. we knew that check in time is at 3pm but we just tried to request if we could check in early w/out really expecting to get our request. but to our surprise, we were accomodated that early and we were really thankful and we appreciated that. we were able to take some rest before going on sightseeing. For this, we highly commend the staff esp. Rowell for doing their best to ready our booked suite. He made us feel welcome and feel at home at that moment. The other staff were also very warm and attentive to our needs. They really made a difference in our stay and we will always remember that with gratefulness and fondness.

          Every thing was excellent. We had a very nice view looking at the gulf. The food was realy heavenly. The children realy enjoyed Wild Wadi. I relaxed in the spa and swimming facilities. All in all it was a geat expectation.

          Firstly, I was surprised that they got the days wrong to begin with, which I had to clarify to them by e-mail. Secondly, they were not sure that the children were in the original booking so I had to show them the booking confirmation. Finally they charged me an extra aed.878.4 Stating it’s charged for the 1st night stay even though this was not mentioned in the original booking. I have gladly paid it because we have enjoyed the amenities tremendously. I wish that they have mentioned it in the original booking so you don’t get any surprises or disappointments.

          The hotel was amazing and the staff were so kind and helpful. The golf buggies that take you from place to place were a nice touch. Also the added extra of using the facilities at all Jumeirah hotels and the wild wadi waterpark was great.
