“Good hotel within easy reach of things to do”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Stayed at Marina Byblos for 3 nights with my wife as part of our Honeymoon. As they knew we were honeymooners before our arrival they had upgraded us to a executive room which was brilliant. We had a living room area and a separate large en-suite bedroom.

The hotel has a pool on the roof which we only used once but it was pretty good looking over the Dubai skyline whilst having a dip.

On the ground floor there is a Latino club with dancers etc and cocktails, it also has free wifi to keep some of the people quiet who moan about wifi! On the other side there is an English themed pub, we originally didn't go in here because it didn't look very inviting. It's a big old fashioned door that's closed with a security bloke stood infront of it, not very welcoming! When we did actually go in though on our final night we were impressed, it has an old medieval style feel to it. Live music, live sports, quizzes etc and drinks deals.

The hotel itself is located just a short walk from the marina area where you can find restaurants and shopping malls etc. It's also not far from the JBR which has plenty of places to get food and drink along the beach. There is a Metro station nearby too which is great (and cheap) for getting around Dubai, like getting to Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa.

Overall this is a good hotel in a good spot for a short break

Nice hotel in good location, 10 mins walk to Dubai marina and to public beach. Room was clean and simple, it had everything needed. I enjoyed the pool area on the rooftop. Wifi not inlcuded, and was overpriced. Very annoying. Overall good value modern hotel, in a good location.

I stayed in this hotel some weeks ago and overall, it was ok as per location but d furnitures were a bit old. Breakfast was great as there was loads of variety. I could hear the noise and vibrations from the night club in the room. I also had to pay for wifi, 100 dirhams for 24 hours that is outrageous.

I got an email with TOTAL price highlighted but then an extra 350dhs tagged onto the bill when checking in due to "small" print. Probably one of the few hotels that still try to cheat customers with small print. Also considering the price per night, it is an absolute joke that they try to charge for wifi. What era are we in? You can get a lot more for your money elsewhere. Will not put my family in there again.

I stayed with Marina Byblos between 16th - 18th June, and I must say after reading the previous reviews I was more than surprised. The concierge was extremely helpful, the rooms were beautiful, the breakfast was superb and the country itself is outstanding. We stayed on the 4th floor and could not even hear the nightclub. We will be back and thank you so much for a memorable stay.

Room Tip: 4TH floor was fabulous

Overall, it was a pleasant overnight stay at the hotel. The location and proximity to our points of interests was spot-on. The employees at the Reception were quite lovely and helpful. However, those guys at the entrance (not sure if they are called the bellhops, guards, concierge - in any case, those in turban/dress costume who are supposed to welcome arrivals) were a letdown. when our car arrived, no one bothered to assist us (though there were at least 3 of them there) by opening doors or by lifting our luggage. We had to lug everything ourselves. The following day, there was also no assistance when we had to hail a cab. I hope that these will not be repeated to other hotel guests.

Room Tip: Try to request for an upgrade to a suite, if possible.
