“Stayed in the JBR - can be noisy.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Stayed in Dubai while working. My room faced the Marina. It can be very noisy with the Tram line construction. There also seem to be a lot of emergency vehicles screaming past on the road below - very noisy with their sirens at all hours.
The staff are friendly and multi-national.
It is about 10/15mins walk to the beach. While I was staying there the rear access from the hotel (way to beach) involved walking through a lot of construction work. There is an afternoon sea breeze/wind which can get very strong and blows a lot of dust about - not pleasant.
There is a bar about 10/15mins walk away called the Underground Bar. Manageress is Scotts and they serve great Gammon Steaks and Bacon Brekky.
It is close to Palm Island but about 30mins 100 UAD (AU$30) from the Airport.
The swimming pool is good for kids - shallow but on the small side - very strong chemical smell.
I give the hotel a 3 - there is just something about it that does not gell - for me.

Dear Carl535353,

Thank you for taking the time to provide extensive feedback on your stay. I am sorry that you were not able to enjoy your visit to its fullest. As you understand, the main reason for the construction of the tram is to reduce the large amount of traffic clogging up Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Beach Residence, especially during the weekends. We are expecting that the trams will make a huge difference to the traffic when they finally open in November. On a more
positive note, I was delighted to read that you found the staff to be friendly. Perhaps, you may return and we can put you in another room in which you may be more comfortable. Please contact us directly and we will endeavor to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay with us.

Best Wishes,
Alper Can Bulcum
General Manager

Lovely Terrace Bar on the 35th floor with great views, only a few minutes walk from the Marina and the beach so great location, friendly and helpful staff, compared to the prices of alot of the other hotels, we think this was excellent value for money.

Dear Kelly B,

Thank you for taking the time to leave your nice thoughts of our hotel. I would have to agree that we have the best rates available when it comes to location, service and quality. We much appreciate when our guests take note of this. The Sama Lounge in 35th floor is definitely the best experience at Ramada Plaza and it is one of our most valuable assets. We look forward to your next stay and please do not hesitate to contact us and we will take care of any requests you may have.

I was over in Dubai working and stayed at the Ramada Plaza Jumeirah Beach. The reception staff were all very friendly and polite.
My room overlooked the marina and unfortunately the tram works (building a tram around the marina area) however I could not hear the noise of the trams as I was on the 13th floor.
Food was good although I would say lunchtime meals in the restaurant can be a little pricey if all you want is a snack.
Pool area was clean and there was always loungers available.
Great location within a few minutes you are on the beach or at the marina and a short taxi ride will you have at the malls or Karama market.

Room Tip: ideally ask for one overlooking the sea and with a balcony (not all rooms have a balcony).

Dear Pauwed1,

It is our pleasure to hear that you had a pleasant stay at our hotel. I am particularly pleased that the friendliness and politeness of Reception staff really impressed you, I am fortunate to be surrounded by passionate, people’s people who genuinely care and enjoy nothing more than being part of our guests’ experiences. Your comment on the restaurant snack will be acted upon soon. I am sorry about the tram works view from your room. As you understand, apart
from its convenience and amazing features, Dubai Tram will hugely benefit the community and visitors in creating a street culture of its own. It will offer everyone a smooth, safe and spacious ride right in the heart of where it all happens. Please do come and see us again and contact us if you require any assistance with your future reservation.

Stayed here two nights on port call. Absolutely great experience, especially coming off the ship. Room was super clean, staff was super helpful and stay was super relaxing. Had a great lunch at the Speak Easy and ordered some room service that hit the spot. We rented the three bedroom apartment and it was very spacious with a balcony overlooking the harbor. I could also see the beach from my bedroom window. Just out back, behind the hotel, was The Walk with lots of nice eateries and a public beach. Cab and shuttle were easy to pick up from the lobby. There's a small grocery store around the corner, a Starbucks and the pool was perfect. We will be back next port call.

I have stayed at this hotel twice in the last six months. I travel to Dubai often and this has been my favourite hotel. The staff are friendly, the location is really convenient and the facilities are perfect for a weekend break. The rooms are spacious and having stayed in one of the two bed apartments it really feels like a home from home. This only downside is waiting for the lifts! They can take an age to arrive especially in the evenings as people go up to the bar and restaurant upstairs.
