Excellent customer service.

Very pleasant and helpful staff, unable to fault any member I spoke to. Made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble,especially the lifeguards moving the sunloungers around following the sun! Hotel was immaculate,bed very comfy. Breakfast was a very good standard indeed and Che and his team worked very hard for sure. Location worked for me as husband was attending a training course nearby,free shuttle service which I didn't use to beach and malls but metro walking distance and plenty of taxis available. Keep up the good work.

Excellent Hotel, would highly recommend.

We visited Dubai for one week to attend a wedding. This hotel gave us everything we needed. Plenty of catering provisions. Excellent in-room dining too. Nice functional pool with plenty of sun loungers. It was very clean, had tasteful decor, excellent house-keeping standards and staff were very attentive and efficient. The outside pool bar was nice for drinks in the evenings. The only thing to let it down was that we were put on a smoking floor and as non-smokers we were affected by the smell of smoke in our room.
