We stayed at the Sofitel at Jumeirah Beach Residence for a weekend as a birthday treat for my husband. I chose the hotel due to its central location to The Walk which has many restaurants and shops to visit and its proximity to the public beach. The rooms are beautifully laid out with a large, spacious bathroom area, the bed was very comfortable and our room had a view of the water and the Palm. We really enjoyed the pool and the wait staff at the pool bar were very welcoming and friendly. We ended up watching one of the World Cup matches at The Hub which was a nice pub, but we wished for a better selection of food. After the World Cup match, we returned to our room to find that the staff had delivered a card and a cake in honour of my husband's birthday which was a nice surprise, and the cake was generous in size and was very very yummy! It was unfortunate though that there appears to be construction work still going on at the hotel which was not intimated to us upon booking or check in. We were awoken at 9am on a Saturday to drilling and hammering and upon reporting it to the concierge, who promised to investigate, the drilling was stopped and was replaced by only hammering, which seemed to continue throughout the day.
The hotel has great potential and we really enjoyed the room that we stayed in and the atmosphere in and around the hotel along The Walk was really nice. It really felt like a beach community and it will be a nice area to stay in during the winter months when it is not ridiculously hot outside. Once the construction works in the hotel are finished, this will become a great and economical place to stay.
