Movenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel Dubai
Ranked #38 of 556 Hotels in Dubai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 September 2013 via mobile

When I return this is must! The staff on door were very welcoming when we arrived, as were those on reception who made checking in incredibly easy. We were all inclusive which was an excellent deal. The room was beautifully presented and very tidy and with everything you all need. All staff were extremely polite and did a great job.

The area is quiet but there is a shopping mall opposite. The metro station was literally only a ten minute walk away from the hotel with links to Dubai mall/Burj Khalifa. I personally liked how relaxed the area of Ibn Battuta was. There is also a spa, salon and pool at the hotel which were all kept extremely well. A regular shuttle to the Oceana beach club which ran every hour. The restaurants were 5 star to and you had to book these. The food was top quality. The infinity pool and the awesome view at the Oceana was impeccable. Negatives for some people (not us!!) - there is no view and the bar area needs more staff please!!! Thanks for a magnificent stay. Will be recommending and the all inclusive deal. Stunning!

I am already excited and eager to return to Dubai and will definitely be staying here again when I do. I genuinely cannot fault the place or the people working there. The staff on door were very welcoming when we arrived, as were those on reception who made checking in incredibly easy. We got to our rooms (superior) which were beautifully presented- very tidy and with everything you could need. The bathrooms were particularly nice. One of our rooms had two single beds- both almost 'double' size and so great to sleep in and the other had a king sized. Everyone slept very well during our stay. The housekeepers were extremely polite and did a great job.

For the people complaining about the area- it was a nice, quiet area with (apparently) the 4th largest mall in Dubai just opposite it (a few minutes walk). Here there was such a huge choice for food, shopping and even a huge cinema and bowling area inside. There was also a supermarket in it which was open till midnight and it seemed to have everything you could possibly need in it. The metro station was literally only a ten minute walk away from the hotel with links to Dubai mall/Burj Khalifa and etc, so nothing really to complain about there- it meant you got to see more of Dubai. I personally liked how relaxed the area of Ibn Battuta was. There is also a spa, salon and pool at the hotel which were all kept extremely well. A regular shuttle to the beach too!

We had breakfast during our stay. The staff were incredible once again! They could not do enough for you. There was such variety and the quality of the food and the effort the staff put in was great. Guest services were also always ready to help, giving us great advice and going out of their way to help us and were always there when we needed something. Every single member of staff I came across, but, particularly those helping on the door, housekeeping, at breakfast and guest services were a true credit to the hotel. The ambiance and atmosphere in the hotel can also not be faulted. This hotel was a strong part of what made our experience so amazing- I look forward to returning very soon and miss it already!

From the seamless checkin to the free shuttle to the beach this hotel offers fantastic value, my husband and I cannot fault anything about this hotel and staff. The lobby area of the hotel is stunning with its huge lanterns and many FOC restaurants if your all inclusive( which I highly recommend) the quality of food and good quality spirits make this a fantastic value all inclusive, they have Asian, Italian, Indian and more we ate in all of them including the Beach restaurant which is stunning with its views and again tentative staff. The rooms are very spacious, clean with comfortable bedding and air conditioned with a safe. The metro is a great way to get around Dubai and very cheap and easy to use, there is also a huge shopping mall across the road from the hotel for easy
shopping, this was a great choice for us and we will definitely be back, book the Friday brunch you will be blown away!

This is a hotel let down by the location which is too far from any life outside the hotel grounds except for a walk thru a large shopping mall nearby. The hotel it self is otherwise good value and tries to provide 5 stars, and has all the services needed for any type of stay. It is good location if your business is the free zone. Can be very empty in off peak summer months.

The location of this hotel means it has to try a little harder to please but it does so with great success. We were on an all inclusive package which was great value for money and included an upgrade to an executive room. We stayed in room 1014 which was large, comfortable and clean overlooking the front of the hotel. Handy for the pool and the executive lounge. All the hotel staff we came across were friendly, polite and most helpful. We ate and the Indian Restaurant several times and it was exceptional. We also ate at the Italian twice - can vouch that the steaks were good! The free shuttle to the beach club is regular and definitely worth the 25 minute ride. Sun beds were plentiful there but could do with more umbrellas as could the pool at the hotel. We had a wonderful relaxing holiday - so thank you Battuta Gate!

Room Tip: High floor overlooking the front of the hotel. Definitely think about all inclusive - otherwise Dub...

It is very nice for a couple only and not for a family with kids, we stayed for two nights, the breakfast buffet is very nice and have a wide variety of food, but the kids club is not furnished with toys for the kids to play it is only a TV and a round table to sit and color drawings. The swimming pool is very nice for adults only.

Room Tip: The AC was very noisy in the room in china part.

Dear Fatme,
Thank you for your sharing your review on your recent stay with the Tripadvisor community.
I was pleased to read you enjoyed our breakfast spread as well as well as our swimming pool. In regards to our kids club, I have taken note of your feedback and will discuss it with the concerned manager to implement some improvements on our toy and facilities offering.
I was also concerned to read about the inconvenience of the noisy AC you experienced during your stay and have made sure to share your feedback with the concerned manager to ensure this is rectified immediately.
Even though we do not offer a children’s swimming pool in the hotel, I would like to recommend you visit our Oceana Beach Club during your next visit as there is a Lazy River which is perfect for children to enjoy.
We look forward to welcoming you back during your next visit to Dubai.
Best Regards,
