Reviewed 23 September 2013

We have just returned from our holiday and can't wait to be back at the Ibn Battuta. This must be our 6th time to this hotel and enjoy it so much as it feels like a home from home. We are always welcomed with big smiles and genuinely feel that the staff are pleased to see us. The food is so good in this hotel that we have to lose weight before we go as we know we will put so much on. The Sicilia Italian is wonderful and the chef Stephano is so fascinating to watch, we call him the Italian Gordon Ramsey! He is so good, as my husband is a fussy eater that he will come out and ask him what he would like and will always adapt a dish to suit him. The Chinese is lovely as is Chit. I want to mention a few of the staff who always make our stay more enjoyable as they really go out there way to look after us. Vincent and Evans at the hotel pool are lovely and they both smile all the time while serving us endless cups of tea and coffee in the boiling heat. Romel (the little Philippine man) on concierge is lovely and always quick to help. It's so nice to go to the Oceana Beach Club and be greeted by Jacqueline, Vincent, Eric and Paul. They work so hard with sometimes very demanding people in the soaring heat without moaning and always a smile on there face. We love Vincent who has a passion for music and seems to know so many different styles of music and kept us reminiscing and trying to remember certain groups. All in all a great hotel and the reviews speak for themselves. The staff are a credit so Ibn Battuta Gate keep up the good work and we will see you again soon. X

First time to Dubai but have done a number of all inclusives but this by far led the pack!!! Nothing could be faulted and the food was absolutely to die for and so much choice which given I am quite fussy I was astounded with!! Would struggle to find any better and cannot wait to go back.

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...
