Arabian Court at One&Only Royal Mirage Dubai

Reviewed 17 March 2013

We stayed at this hotel as part of our honeymoon in August 2012 for four nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were welcomed by the friendly staff at reception who explained everything to us clearly. The hotel has an Arabian theme and has lovely architecture. We were very impressed by its look, cleanliness and the customer service.

Our room was a decent size and we had a large, comfortable king sized bed, which allowed us to have a goodnights sleep. The facilities were good, however we were slightly disappointed at their lack of honeymoon benefits that we had received at the other hotels we stayed in as part of our honeymoon. We were also not happy that for such a fine hotel the wifi was chargeable when it was complimentary at our other honeymoon destinations.

The restaurant where we had our breakfast, had nice architecture and the buffet was good quality with decent choices.

The location of the hotel was on the beach with the road leading to the palm island only moments away. We were about 20-30 mins away from the Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates, however were close to the attractions of Jumerah beach.

Overall, a generally good hotel.

We were here for a wedding and reception. How much better can it get? The buffet was arrayed in a fantastic manner. Rice, sauces, meze, meats, vegies, salad. Then of course the fabulous sweet desserts and the coffee. Booze, not so much. Remember this is Arabia.

There is no doubt this is a stunning, beachfront property ... but the problem is front of house staff.

To start with, the reservation process was antiquated and tedious: I called twice from London, gave them all my details and a credit card etc. Still, the reservation department hassled me with many emails asking for a signed booking form, to be scanned and emailed back - like we're not busy enough! Then typically, at check-in none of it had been logged in so I went through the whole process again.

The day of check-out, the receptionist (who doesn't know what a smile is) asked if i'd had anything from the mini bar. I said yes, a bar of chocolate. It's not really my job to tell the hotel these things but I did. There ensued 10 minutes of waiting as she frantically tried to reach someone to rush to the room to ascertain the extent of my mini bar pillaging, and especially the cost of this morsel of sugar. I had already paid the bill (a very handsome sum) and couldn't help thinking, that had this person been less like a machine and more like a human being, with initiative and common sense, she would have offered me the bar of chocolate - on the house - like good hotels do. Because good hotels care about their customers and want them to come back. But she didn't - and so I won't.

There are too many beautiful beachfront properties in Dubai to restrict yourself to this one. Don't is my advice.

We loved the royal mirage hotel. We were booked into the palace but on arrival got moved to the Arabian court. The whole hotel setup is excellent, having the 3 hotels all together with the choice of restaurants. It really did feel like a little oasis in dubai, the hotel buildings are very low rise and has many pools and a great beach all along the front.
The restaurants were superb, we were on a half board deal (which would really recommend) and managed to eat in most of the restaurants, our favourites were 1 - beach bar and grill. 2- nina's. 3- eauzone. (In our opinion nearly Michelin food standards, as good a most top restaurants we eat in the uk.)

Dubai is expensive, wine in the hotel was roughly £11 for a glass of wine.
We don't stay in 5 star hotels all the time and maybe if you do you could find faults, but we loved it, can't wait to go back but need to save up again first.
Enjoy.

The hotel says that all rooms are seafaring so we could not suspect that our room should have a view direct in the” jungle”, se photos, room 4025. Most of the rooms on the fourth floor in the north wing of Arabian Court were looking into palm crowns so there is nothing to see.
Take down some palms so we can see something of the pool and beach.

The other complaints is the beds, we are used to hard beds when we visit Spain or Greece but this were worse even when we had an extra thin mattress.

Why do you charge for the use of Internet, in most hotels (at least 5 *) and on airports it is free of charge ?

This was the negative about Arabian Court but we really liked the hotel, garden and beach and the two pools and all the staff in hotel, around the pools and on the beach.

We are very pleased with all restaurants, we were on half board which meant that we had a credit of 160 AED per person in a la carte restaurants, the buffet restaurants were in

having eaten at the Olive Restaurant several years ago and loved it, on this trip we thought we would try the hotel. What a mistake, The attitude of the staff is appalling. At dinner they started clearing up around us at 11 although the restaurant hours were until 11.45.
The standard of the buffet was very basic, and we later found out this is one of the all inclusive restaurants

coffee was served in a cafetiere at breakfast with coffee grinds above the level of the plunger, leaving coffee grinds floating on your morning coffee. We had a continental but it took 3 goes to get them to change the bill,.
Lunch at Eau Zone was average, tiny salad Nicoise with nasty strong onions in it. Husbands beer was 7pounds
I asked for a map of the resort by the pool and was told I had to go to reception to get one, this is typical of the staff attitude to just about anything.

Room Tip: I would recommend staying elsewhere but ground floor sea facing is much nicer as you have a patio o...
