Absolute splendour

Posted 23-Jul-2015
Pros: The general facilities, location, pool areas, the friendly staff and their an absolute dedication to ensuring your stay is a memorable one.
Cons: Turn the temperature down a tad!!!
Location: As taxis are very reasonable getting to the Emirates or Dubai Mall (a must see) is all quite easy. $20 Australia gets you most places of interest.
The Royal Meridien is a beautiful hotel that provides five star facilities and luxury for guests. Located on the beach and close to the Marina it is ideally located to provide varying experiences of Dubai and all it has to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would unreservedly recommend it to friends.

Great hotel

Posted 20-Jul-2015
Pros: The helpful, friendly staff and facilities.
Location: Lots of great restaurants on site and close by.
Wonderful staff, great facilities (will be even better when the maintenance on the additional pools is complete). After a long over night flight I was able to check in first thing in the morning and received a room upgrade, most grateful! The room was beautiful and made up several times throughout the day, including leaving additional water and snacks.

Great hotel on the beach

Posted 07-Jul-2015
Pros: Great service and all the amenities
Location: Good location for the beach but far away from malls etc
We had 3 wonderful days at this lovely hotel, friendly staff and good overall service. Good amenities. Shame that one of the pool was not open and drilling noise throughout the day I would go back though

Club room and value

Posted 27-Jun-2015
Pros: See above. Plus boat tour by water sports people was superb.
Cons: See above re some counter staff
Location: Right on a lovely beach area. A short drive from the airport and to the main shopping Mall. Next time we will stay a week and explore further.
We could not complain about the value we received from our Club room. From our arrival at the airport; check-in; the room comfort, quality and outlook; the top quality of all food in the restaurants; the pools and grounds; to check out; and trip back to the airport. OK, if you insist... a couple of minor issues... the pool opening and closing times seemed a bit erratic. We were told one thing by counter staff and the signs and actual closing times... all three could be different. For example, we would walk past a pool 15 minutes before closing and it was deserted - no bathers, no sun-lounge people, no staff, no lights. The hotel staff were perfect - housekeeping, always a cheerful genuinely friendly greeting; restaurant staff (waiters, kitchen staff) and grounds/pool staff the same. BUT for some reason many of the counter staff in 5* hotels genuinely think they need to take professionalism way over the top... to be stiff, unfamiliar with the guests almost to the point of unfriendly. I think it should be compulsory, every month, to watch Michael J Fox in "The Concierge" to see how you can be professional without making customers feel uncomfortable.

Great hotel with lovely beach. 3 pools and good service. Check In experience wasn't very good but the rest of the stay was wonderful. Definitely upgrade to a room with club lounge benefits.
