Short term break

Expensive and now showing signs of tiredness. Rooms need updating. In room entertainment prehistoric by todays standards. Club area was a disgrace. Poor service and attitude. So much so that when we complained they gave it to us for free.Given they charge premium prices rooms and resort need updating badly.

Third time happy

Having visited this hotel complex for the third time in three years should give an idea of our appreciation of great service. We again stayed in a summerhouse villa, on half board. The butler service was super. Anything & everything we required was taken care of, from water transport, or golf cart service around the complex was to hand. all the restaurants, & there are many, provided excellent food & service. We will certainly go next year.

Happy time

My wife & I stayed at this hotel complex about the same time last year. We like the whole experience. This year just endorsed our memories. A totally relaxing time. All our needs were taken care of. Will travel to Dibai again in the very near future.

Relaxing break

I recently stayed in one of the lovely summer houses at the Dar Al Masyaf Madinat Jumeriah. We stayed in one of the villas with a view of the creek which was absolutely amazing. It was really helpful having a private butler to cater to our every need but I have to say that ALL the staff at the Dar Al Masyaf and the main hotel the Al Qasr were briliant. I became ill a couple of days towards the end of my stay and the manager and rest of the staff could not have looked after me better, they even sent flowers and a get well card to my room. This was my first visit to Dubai but I went with my cousin who has visited Dubai many times before but it was also her first time at the Dar Al Masyaf and we both agreed that when we return to Dubai we will definately be staying at the Dar Al Masyaf.

Einfach ein Paradies auf Erden!!!

Wir verbrachten etwas mehr als eine Woche im Dar Al Masyaf. Viele haben immer gesagt, eine Woche reicht in Dubai, aber in diesem Hotel hätten wir gerne noch viel länger geblieben. Nur schon die grosse Restaurant-Auswahl ist unbeschreiblich und auch ein Essen im Burj al Arab ist bei Halbpension sehr erschwinglich. Doch die ganze Hotellandschaft haut einem einfach um. Ob mit dem Buggy von einer Örtlichkeit zur Anderen oder mit dem Abra (Boot) den Weg über das Wasser geniessen, man fühlt sich einfach zur jeder Zeit in den Ferien. Auch der Strand ist sehr schön und überhaupt nicht überfüllt (auf jeden Fall zu unserer Reisezeit Ende September nicht). Die Zimmer werden zwei mal täglich geputzt und der Hauseigene Butler sorgt ständig für das Wohl der Gäste. Jederzeit weiter zu empfehlen!

Hotel in excellent location near the sea

Pros: Everything, especially the entire nice service, the apartment was large and very clean. In our apartementvilla we had their own butler 24 hours. nice!
Cons: It can not be better, the operators of the hotel should keep this lavel.
Location: There are, also for families with children very many possibilities in the hotelareal, with many restaurants a market and many bars.
You feel in the garden eden, super pools, staff's very friendly and helpful. Unique here the guest sunglasses cleaned !!!! As well as free ice and much more. A must visit is the burj al khalifa building with its water events. On the evening everyone sees the skyline of dubai super.

Das Hotel hat einen wunderschönen orientalischen Baustil, man fühlt sich wie in einer Oase. Der tolle Strand und die Zimmer sind sehr sauber, das Personal überall äusserst freundlich. Obwohl die Preise für Essen und Trinken sehr hoch sind würden wir wieder hingehen. Es hebt sich ab von den anderen Hotels. Einfach ein wunderschöner Ort.
