Marina Byblos Hotel
Ranked #218 of 561 Hotels in Dubai
Reviewed 9 October 2012

Overall, I found this to be a really good hotel. Only stayed for two nights but the room was clean, staff very helpful and food very good. (Only had breakfast but was impressed by the quality and selection). The hotels location is some way from the airport, but the Metro is very handy and taxi's very reasonable. The rooftop pool was excellent, if a little small, and don't expect exotic views, it is in a very buit up area. I wouldnt hesitate to use this hotel again if in transit and only for a few nights, but any longer and I think I would get one in Downtown Dubai.

Overall, our September 2012 stay at the Dubai Marina Byblos was pretty great. The hotel is located near the beach, about a block from the Metro, and down or across the street from various stores and restaurants. A delicious, varied breakfast is included, and the hotel offers lunch and dinner buffets if desired. The infinity edge pool is small but nice, though the roof area is very, very hot after 9am, so go early, or late (closes at 11pm, though). If you don't smoke BE SURE to ask for a room on the 4th or 5th floor - all others are smoking floors. There is a small spa and gym also located on the top floor.

Stayed here with my daughter in June, very hot weather indeed... I simply cant fault the hotel, it was in an ideal location for the Marina part of town. Easy access to the beach as well as the marina.

Bedroom was excellent, spacious and good facilities, we had breakfast each day and it was sufficient and varied enough...

We used the rooftop pool each day and had no probs getting a sunbed..

The main irish bar again was good, nice and busy but the England Euro Championship match was on so not surprised...

The big question is....would i return to this hotel? Yes of course..its reasonably priced for Dubai and the staff and facilities and location were very good

Overall, the Marina Byblos is a good hotel. The rooms are spacious and the facilities are as expected from a 4* hotel.

First the positives: the hotel is very clean, and staff are well presented. The pool and a good size and never too busy and the bars and restaurants are also very good in the hotel. The rooms are cleaned daily and the beds are very comfortable. The hotel is a 5 min walk to the train station which stops at all the main parts of Dubai so travelling is easy although taxi's are very cheap.

Now the negatives: no free WiFi for guests (although Bob's Fish and Chips across the road from the hotel offers free Wifi - and also an amazing fish and chips). i found SOME staff quite moody and unhelpful. Although the hotel is in the marina, it is not in the main part of the marina where all the bars and restaurants are. it is a 5 min taxi ride away (or 1 train stop). no iron or ironing board in the room - this must be requested but is taken away everytime the room is cleaned.

Overall i was happy and most of the negatives are minor points. Out of the hotels i looked at, in terms of location and price, this was the best but i think next time i would go somewhere a bit more central.

Myself and Partner stayed at this Hotel from the 8th to 15th of September, We had the double standard room which was very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and there is a nice atmosphere in the various bars and restuarants, The location is great a short walk to the beach with plenty of places to eat along the beach front, The Breakfast in the Hotel was ok, It varied slightly Day to Day The usual buffet style with european and arabic foods, Try the mixed omelette which is cooked while you wait by the chef outside the patio doors very tasty, The roof top pool was small and a bit crowded at times but you didn't have to wait very long for a bed or lounger as the sun and heat was so intense that most people only lasted a short time before retiring to the shade or air conditioned room. The bar beside the reception has a resident english band playing great sounds, Thursday starts the weekend in Dubai so this bar is very busy so don't expect any special offers on Thursday or friday, the rest of the week however you can get a bucket of 5 long neck beers for 99 drms, The food is reasonable and they do daily specials, We would return to this Hotel again,

Room Tip: High floor with view of the Marina.

We visited with our two young children for a discounted family brunch on a Friday. We didn't stay in the hotel overnight.

On the plus side, the location was easy to access and parking in the basement car park was free. We also found the service polite and efficient, and rooftop pool access was a big hit with our kids.

On the down side, the food was very poor. Had we been staying at the hotel we would not be eating at the Captain's Table again. As it is, we won't be visiting the hotel again.

The brunch on offer was a "delicious BBQ brunch with soups, salads, main courses, desserts, and a glass of bubbly". In reality, this translated into: an odd assortment of salad starters, many of which included pickled cabbage or beetroot, a choice of either barbecued boot-leather or half a dozen hot main courses comprising boot-leather in a variety of creamy sauces, ALL served with mashed potato (no veg or other sides), a choice of 4 rubber cheeses, and a selection of standard hotel desserts. And the bubbly on offer was actually 2 sips of bucks fizz.

Obviously we didn't see the rooms, but the WCs, pool and changing room facilities are reminiscent of a building site. For a business that has been up and running for over a year, the state of repair and general condition of the property is very poor (eg. loose door handles, many cracked and missing tiles around the pool, etc). And whilst we did enjoy the pool, don't be fooled by any flowery descriptions: it is a small infinity pool with views of.... yes, rooftops, building sites, and the Sheikh Zayed Rd.

Even with a 50% discount, this was very poor value for money. Our children are not fussy eaters, but they ate almost nothing. We won't be returning - at any price!
