From the time I arrived and checked in after a 14 hour flight and a 2 hour cab ride from Dubai, to the time I left, the staff were outstanding. Nothing was too difficult, and everything was done with a warm smile and a cheerful statement.
A hotel building is architectural steel, glass, and concrete housing electrical wiring and plumbing. But it is the staff that give a hotel its charm. This hotel is charming.
I could pick any member of staff, but let me use Jones as an example. Jones works in the Corniche restaurant. On my arrival one morning for breakfast, Jones advised me that a function of about 200 had booked the restaurant. They had not yet arrived. Jones organised everything for my breakfast in advance of the arrival of the group. Even during the high load, he kept checking that all was OK, and he did it with a warm smile.
I am more than happy to return.
