This was our second stay at the JZS, and we were not disappointed.
From check in to check out it was again an amazing experience, from spotless facilities and welcoming staff. After an overnight flight we were given a warm welcome, checked in and offered drinks. Our room was not ready, so had breakfast and by the time we'd finished (45 minutes or so) our room was prepped for us.
The hotel was busy as it coincided with school holidays, but that subsided post weekend and we settled into our stay.
Beach and poolside are spotless and well tended to, towels, cold water and ice lollies on offer as it averaged 40 degrees at times.
We had a 5th floor room, Arabian King bed and ample room with usual JZS bathroom. Views out over the gulf, with land view towards the beach and The Walk across the bay, which at night shows off the amazing illuminated Dubai skyline.
Staying on a half board basis again found the choice of food wide and varied across all the restaurants. Amala is very good, but high standards prevail across all the concessions and JZS' own restaurants. There were a couple of poor offerings in the Imperium, which fairs better for breakfast than it does for evening meals.
My wife and I are not demanding guests when it comes down to the staff, and it was always maximum effort, minimum fuss whenever we asked for anything. We are however demanding around standards of service, cleanliness and quality, again we were never let down at all.
The stay was simply to wind down and relax from our busy schedules. But we did go to the Mall Of Emirates and Dubai Mall, spending several hours at both. If you want food on your travels/shopping expeditions the American Diner The
Cheesecake Factory was awesome, two portions could have fed four! I don't recall eating much dinner that night.
Aside from alcohol, cost of living was akin to the UK (London and the south), but we didn't find it in any way excessive.
Overall an amazing stay, gorgeous hotel with helpful friendly staff. Good food and an impressive selection of wines across the resort.
I have no hesitation recommending JZS to anyone (and have done), we had a fantastic stay.
