We were looking to arrive in Dubai to catch up on some much needed R & R. The JB hotel was the perfect location to do so - attentive staff, fantastic facilities and glorious setting. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we didn't even leave the hotel complex for the four days we were there.
Top tips - Beachcombers restaurant for the buffet, cocktails at the Uptown bar on the top floor, take a courtesy buggy to Souk Madinat for dinner and a courtesy boat back.
Be prepared for some upscale prices to accompany your stay at JB though - dining and drinking does not come cheap although the quality is invariably excellent. Also, be prepared for encountering a clientele that spans the globe (with Russians particuarly enjoying the JB) and which, at times, seems intent on flaunting their wealth with fabulous clothes and surgically enhanced bodies!
Overall, we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly at the JB and when we next need to recharge, we know where we will be heading!
stayed many times in past, thats why we come back- relaxing in luxury
We ate at MJs restaurant and had a salad by pool bar both of which were disappointing- we have never had a bad in any Dubai hotel.
We were allowed early and late check in which was a great help
A free gift of a bottle of Prosecco was a nice touch.
Gymnasium was excellent
Unfortunately I was ill for duration of stay but staff couldn't have been more helpful and kind. This is my third stay in Dubai and this is the best hotel to date ahead of Jumeriah Beach hotel.
Beautiful summer house villa exceeded expectations but real difference is the staff who really are fantastic.
Very nice resort, small but clean beach, excellent food (lot of restaurants) and SPA, outstanding staff very friendly and attentive. A little bit noisy at night, but nothing dramatic (probably because I have a very very light sleep). Overall a little bit pricey but you get what you pay for as it is an exclusive address in Dubai. Family friendly.
We went for the 2nd half of our honeymoon after staying on the Palm. It was a nice change of pace, more upbeat, more people, more restaurants....more action. The grounds are beautiful, the hotel is amazing. The buffet is to die for. The selection of restaurants is great. We couldn't have been happier with our decision to stay here. The concierge was so helpful and we really enjoyed our stay. The weekend we stayed happened to be Easter and they put on a show and a half...tons of food, events and activities for the kids. It was a ton of fun just to see everything happening. It really is the perfect place for everyone... families, singles, honeymooners, couples, etc.!
Jumeirah Beach is a rapidly growing seafront resort with leisure parks, shopping malls, boutiques and beauty salons. The sail-shaped Burj Al-Arab tops the luxury hotel league. Development continues, both along the coast and on artificial offshore islands. The mosaic-encrusted Iranian Hospital and Mosque are closed to the public, but the exquisite Jumeirah Mosque admits non-Muslims for guided tours.
