Great hotel, superb location.

Posted 25-Apr-2016
Pros: Location, standard of the hotel and excellent staff.
Cons: Food options are expensive, even at the poolside bar, sports bar and Brasserie.
Location: JBR walk is very close by and the Dubai Metro is a 10 minute walk. Close to Emirates Golf Club and Dubai Marina.
This was our second stay at this hotel and we chose it because of our excellent experience last year. The hotel is superbly located in the area of Dubai marina and has access to the beach plus three swimming pools. Staff are very friendly and the hotel is very clean and modern with multiple dining options.

Struttura sul mare di fronte a Palm

Posted 20-Apr-2016
Pros: Alta qualità dei ristoranti presenti, piscina e parco ben curati, spiaggia attrezzata molto ben sistemata
Cons: Camera ritinteggiata con odore abbastanza forte
Location: Struttura affacciata sul mare, campi da tennis in sintetico sopra il parcheggio coperto a disposizione degli ospiti. Zona centrale di Dubai Marina.
Servizio ottimo e grande disponibilita del personale a trovare la migliore sistemazione. Nel mio caso la stanza è stata immediatamente sostituita dopo una mia richiesta per il rumore proveniente da un cantiere temporaneo.

Even though the hotel is going through a renovation they still maintained there highest standards. Our stay, as a family:me, my wife and 2 year old daughter was spectacular. The pool, or should i say the multiple pools were fantastic for my kid and the beach was also close. There is a penguin club which includes activities for children and that was amazing. Frankly-we never really felt like we had to leave the hotel premises-we even had some friends come over to one of the hotel restaurants and we enjoyed shisha, grilled kababs and a belly dancer-forgot to mention they also had a michel jackson imitator-who was pretty impressive. I would absolutely and without a doubt recommend this hotel to anyone travelling for the purpose of relaxation at a resort. A word about their staff-they are AWESOME-no other word describes them... Finally-this hotel will be undergoing a renovation so i will definitely be booking with them again-regardless if the renovation is complete or not. It is very unlikely that you will have any regrets if you book this hotel.

Everything you need

Posted 16-Apr-2016
Pros: Spacious, clean and the food and service was fantastic.
Location: There isn't much nearby, and you will need a taxi to get to most things, but if you are on a beach holiday, this is perfect!
We just left and I am already planning my return trip! The hotel exceeded all of my expectations, even though it is undergoing some construction (upgrades) hence my 4 stars on condition, instead of 5. The staff was fabulous and supremely helpful. The room was clean and quiet and spacious. The grounds were immaculately kept. And the beach - nothing but white sand and warm water with space for everyone! And if you didn't want to get sandy, there were pools aplenty to choose from. The food was great (though not all of the restaurants were open due to reconstruction/upgrades). The only thing I would say is that if you are in Dubai to see the sights (mall of Dubai, Burj Kahlifa, etc...) you are a bit out of the way and will be about a 20-25 minute taxi ride away. Not a problem for us as we were on a beach holiday.

Impeccable Service

Posted 22-Mar-2016
Pros: Everything
Cons: Cannot think of anything
Location: Location was great; very near the metro and nearby restaurants and shops
This was the first time I had stayed at the Royal Meridien and I must say what a fantastic experience! The staff and their service were second to none and went out of their way to make sure our stay was first class. On a previous trip to Dubai I stayed at another brilliant hotel, but I would stay here again, as the location and the facilities were better. I would not stay anywhere else as we were spoilt; even had a fantastic upgrade as it was my birthday. Special thanks to Annish and Hazel!

Gute Lage aber renovierungsbedürftig

Posted 21-Mar-2016
Pros: Strand- und Poolbereich innerhalb einer großzügigen Gartenanlage mit ausreichend Sonnen- und vor allem auch Schattenplätzen.
Cons: Die Zimmer bedürfen einer Renovierung. Die Mitarbeiter, besonders am Concierge-Schalter, sollten besser geschult werden.
Location: Direkte Strandlage, Nähe zur Dubai Marina und JBR Walk mit unzähligen Restaurants. Perfekt für Fußgänger, ca. 15 Minuten zur Tram und Metro.
Sehr schöne Lage des Hotels direkt am Strand und in fußläufiger Entfernung zur Dubai Marina und zum JBR Walk. Hier kann man wunderschön entlanglaufen, man findet diverse Geschäfte und Restaurants, es herrscht eine entspannte, multikulturelle Atmosphäre. Das Royal Meridien hat eine wunderschöne Pool- und Gartenanlage sowie einen großzügig dimensionierten Privatstrand. Im Gegensatz zu den anderen Hotels in diesem Strandabschnitt herrschte zu keinem Zeitpunkt Enge, man fand jeweils ausreichend Liegen und Sonnenschirme vor, auch mit deutlichem Abstand zu den Liegennachbarn. Weniger schön sind die Zimmer des Hotels, die einer dringenden Renovierung bedürfen, hier sind meiner Meinung nach keine 5 Sterne mehr gerechtfertigt (abgenutzter Teppichboden, fleckige Polstermöbel, veraltetes Bad). Einzelne Abschnitte des Royal Meridiens sind laut Angabe der Mitarbeiter auch bereits erneuert worden, man muss deshalb von erträglichem Baulärm ausgehen. Eine Zumutung ist die Lärmbelästigungen des direkt benachbarten Beachclubs Zero Gravity. Hier hämmerten jeden zweiten Tag bis nach Mitternacht die Bässe, sodass das Schlafen in den Meerblickzimmern nur mit geschlossener Balkontür möglich war. In einem 5 Sterne Hotel sollten auch nicht ständig andere Mitarbeiter, die gerade keine Koffer schleppen oder Taxis heranwinken, den Dienst am Concierge-Schalter übernehmen. Zu den Aufgaben gehört eben nicht nur das Bedienen eines Computers inklusive Internets sondern auch eine differenzierte Beratung.

l'albergo ha una bellissima spiaggia attrezzata

Posted 17-Mar-2016
Pros: lo spazio che ha la spiaggia a differenza di altri hotel. La colazione che ci è stata offerta al nostro arrivo è eccezionale.
Cons: per la mia esperienza tutto ok
Location: ben posizionato rispetto alle attrazioni della zona, considerando anche che i taxi costano poco.
il personale è molto efficiente la spiaggia e le piscine molto curate. La stanza nella torre è stata molto confortevole anche se non aveva vista mare.
