What a wonderful hotel! Cannot say enough about the staff and the facilities. The rooms were spotless and really well appointed. The restaurants were all excellent. The Executive Level breakfast was wonderful and the staff there were with out a doubt some of the most friendly and helpful staff I have ever encountered in any hotel! (and I have been in many)! The front desk staff were so helpful as well and welcoming on our arrival. It was so hot by the pool (July) but the pool temperature was refreshing and cool. The staff brought around cold towels from time to time! The location was great - close to Mall of the Emirates and Gold and Diamond park. The taxi service in Dubai is cheap and very readily available so a cab ride to Burj al Arab, Dubai Mall etc., not at all expensive. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone with a family wanting a great resort style stay in Dubai but also for couples wanting a relaxing holiday. The fact it was Ramadam was not an issue in any way and in fact in many ways enhanced our experience. Will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Executive floor rooms fantastic!

My family and I have just returned back from a week at this hotel. I have to say I am left with nothing but praise for the standard of the hotel, the quality, and the overall service.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. We had asked for two rooms close together - this was difficult for the hotel as they were full. We were ushered to a temporary facility so we could relax and begin our holiday. We were massively early having arrived on a night flight from the U.K. The room contained very nice sofas and massage chairs - a very nice facility. There were even thoughtfully placed showers so we could freshen up.

Khalid on reception did a great job later in the day finding us two room close together in a quiet part of the hotel (236 & 237).

On entering the rooms you could feel the apparent luxury a spaciousness of the room. The bed is one of the best I have had the pleasure to sleep in. It is massive also. The room was very well appointed and very roomy. The bathroom had a bath, shower, toilet facilities all en suite. A very nice start.

Throughout the week Hani did an excellent job in servicing both of he rooms. This guy delivered exceptional levels of service. The hotel placed a birthday cake in both rooms as my wife and daughter were both celebrating special birthdays. A very welcome, and nice touch. We also had fruit delivered on one of the days.

We had a half board package. He orange and Blue restaurant is were this largely takes place. The quality and variety of foods as top notch. I never struggled to find something of interest be it Indian, Asian, or something more exotic. The chef making the naan breads is an absolute craftsman - some of the best I have eaten (small point -but important to mention) The restaurant never seemed crowded despite the hotel being busy.

The pool area is very nice. Essentially two pool side bars connected by a lazy river - quite extensive. There is a proper pool with lanes for the dedicated. There is an adults only area for a bit of peace and quiet. Kids seem to be well accommodated for also. As an ex life guard I was impressed by the attentive and ample life guarding team. The bars offered a nice selection at reasonable prices. The alcohol was essentially at big city prices - say c£6 for a pint of branded lager. Not bad considering where we were. Service at the pool side was attentive and exemplary - my wife burnt mildly and the staff made a every effort to find her shade. They also offered treatment if she was uncomfortable. Despite being really hot there was plenty of shade.You could access the beach and the sea via he hotels private beach. Very nice - bath hot sea with a very interesting backdrop. Also a good view of both the Atlantis and the Birj Al Arab hotels.

The concierge were excellent also. Marshalling the very reasonably priced taxis and looking after restaurant bookings for you. We didn't get around to trying the other restaurants on site, so I cannot comment about these. Supposed to be good though.

The only negatives I have are:
1) Construction noise in the morning - some heavy drilling. Not sure what this actually was.
2) Smell of cigarette smoke in the corridor near our room (but limited to that location)
3) Roadworks at the front of the property lead to traffic jams in the evening and extended taxi rides (more a time issue than a cost one. This issue isn't the hotel fault, but it would be improper if I didn't mention it.

Despite stating the above I would thoroughly commend this hotel if your are looking for a very relaxing Dubai break.

Thanks to all of the staff who worked so hard to make our stay enjoyable. Until the next time!

We have just returned from a great week at The Westin.

The staff were always courteous and polite and nothing was too much trouble.

We are not big fans of buffet restaurants but The Blue Orange was one of the most extensive we'd encountered in Dubai (it was far superior to the buffet in the sister hotel Mina Seyahi) The room was large and ideal for what we wanted. The beds were really comfy as well.

I have to thank the cleaning staff, Mohammed for providing our 4 year old daughter with her own slippers and bathrobe - she loved this.

Also Brian, who came to do turn down one evening, he tried to give my little girl some biscuits which were left on our pillows each night, our daughter told him she didn't like them and he asked what she does like to which she replied chocolates...Later that evening on returning from dinner there were 4 chocolates left on the bottom of her bed. She was so pleased!

Slight negative was the pool area - I didn't think there was enough staff for the number of guests which involved waiting a long time for drinks etc. As the pool area is spread out it is not always that easy to get a bed close to the bar so more staff would be beneficial.

Also somewhere to eat near the pool (other than your sunbed) would be a plus for guests at the Westin - we had to walk to Mina Seyahi as the only eating place at The Westin was in adults only area.

Other than these slight negatives the hotel was excellent and we would not hesitate to return.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are worth paying a bit extra for

I love this hotel, I can be working hard in Dubai - but feel like I'm on vacation as soon as I enter the hotel. Easy to walk the beaches and the marina,easy taxi ride to "The Walk" for sundowners!
Or a little refreshment and entertainment in the Barasti bar

Room Tip: Deluxe Sea View room if you can get one !
