Me and my husband stayed at the Marina Byblos for a week from 26th October 2012 with our 9 month baby. The hotel has a great appearance. We arrived at the hotel around 2am and check-in was swift. The staff took our baby whilst we checked in and entertained him. We were served with a much needed drink.
There was a slight problem as a non-smoking room was not available for us as requested due to the busy eid period. This problem was rectified by staff even without us requesting this. They advised us that a non-smoking room would be ready for us the following day. They made the change to the new room as easy as they could.
Staff were always polite and very welcoming to our baby. They were always happy to help with any questions we had.
The decor of the room was lovely and the room was well equipped for a 4 star hotel. We got room service a few times and the service was always great. Breakfast at the hotel was average.
The hotel is located by the dubai marina and about a 7min walk to The Walk. It is also about a 10min walk from the Marina Mall and 7 mins away from the metro station.
If you would like to be close to attractions like Burj Khalifa, creek, etc then you would probably be better selecting another hotel. However we found that the hotel was ideal especially as we had a little baby with us.
During our stay I came down with sickness and the hotel offered to arrange a Doctor and also sent a basket of fruit for me which I found was a great gesture.
We used the rooftop pool on a few occasions and always found loungers/parasols. I made use of the ladies salon which was also good.
Overall the hotel made our trip to Dubai more comfortable.
If anything I think that it would have been very useful if the hotel could have assisted us with sterilising our baby's feeding equipment as most hotels do. When asked we were told that this would not be possible.
