“Good value hotel”
Reviewed 22 February 2008

We wanted a short break staying close to Jumeira Beach and a location offering good proximity to Dubai's other attractions. The Regent Beach Resort fulfilled this at an affordable rate compared to the other beach hotels. Although the hotel is not luxurious, it offers adequate facilities and an unobtrusive service. As an unmarried mixed race couple we were wary about being questioned about our status, given some other reviews on this site. However this was not a problem although we wore rings as appropriate. The hotel is a stone's throw from lovely quiet open beach. The breakfast had a wide spread; ranging from beef bacon to muesli to fruit. The hotel has two restaurants open to the public. We tried the Indian one; the service was pleasant and helpful and the food tasty. Note they also serve alcohol. The decor is a bit of a mish-mash, but has its own weird appeal as it's not too clinical. However if you want conventional luxury then don't bother. It's ideal if you are more concerned with getting out and about in Dubai.

I stayed at the hotel with my 3 year old son and it was perfect. The staff were really friendly and the room was very comfortable. It is very short walk to the beach which was quite quiet but maybe not as pretty as other parts of the beach which is the only bad thing i have to say about my stay.

We stayed for 3 nights as a stop over with Emirates on our way to Australia. This is a nice hotel- value for money compared to the 4-5 star hotels, with friendly and helpfull staff. The rooms are clean, the breakfasts are good, unfortunately the air-con unit was a little noisy- which is essential in Dubai. The beach is a 50m stroll across the road from the hotel- which apart from the odd jelly fish was a welcome relief from the heat.

  • Liked — Close to the beach and away from the chaos and noise of consctruction sites
  • Disliked — The heat of Dubai

First of all ,first things first. In reply to all those negative comments and moans from previous posters, all i can suggest is that you dig a bit deeper in your pocket and spend some more money if it,s a top class hotel your looking for.
Spent a week here in April and although it,s only a 3 star it makes up for it in 5 star service.From the bell boys to the hotel taxi drivers, they couldn,t be more helpful (can organize trips etc. for a decent price ).
Right beside the beach which has police presence/life guard on duty and sunbed rental, there are also 2 refreshment kiosks, yes it it close to dubai dock area but not too distracting.(Go other side of promenade)
Location of hotel means that a taxi to city sights i.e. gold souks / markets / sail on the creek etc. work out about 3 pounds sterling each way, opposite direction takes you straight down the beach road to other attractions (wild wadi / mall of emirates / madinet etc. ) work out a price with your driver, maybe 5 pounds .
Hotel itself very clean and tidy , room cleaned every day, b/fast bar ok (omlettes made to order) internet access in reception and airport pick up can be organised. (our flight was over 1 hr late got in around 11.30 p.m. & still got welcomed with smiling face by driver.) Eating in the hotel could be quite expensive but only in line with other hotel eateries.
Various shopping malls within 5-10 min. walk all with big range of cafes.one of the best is Tony,s New York Deli in the Village mall. Also McDonald,s right across the road for those on a bad diet.
Could ramble on but can,t say enough good things about this place .For those not too bothered about 5 star hotels , suggest you try here ,unlikely to be disappointed.

This hotel is located between the town centre and Regent beach, one of the nicest beachs in Dubai. However, it is the beginning of this beach, near the port. The best part of the beach is farther away (near the Burj Al Arab and the Medinat), you need to take a cab to get there.

Frankly, eveything looks pretty average in this hotel. Rooms are OK: large and well equipped (2 TV sets, fridge etc). However, the pool is very small and not refreshed, so during summer the water becomes so hot that there is no point to swim and bath in it. The fitness room is also very small. The breakfast buffet is OK but not more than that.

In brief, if I were to go to Dubai I would not go there again, I would spend some money more and go to a nicer hotel.

Have just returned from 5 nights at the Regent Beach Resort and was very happy with it.

It is not luxurious but what do you expect from a 3 star hotel. It was however very comfortable and the staff extremely polite and helpful.

For me it is very simple, if you are looking to stay on the beach in a budget hotel then this is the place to stay.

I had friends staying in Bur Dubai when i was out there and the RBR was in a different league for the same price.

We had been travelling in Australia and stopped here for 2 nights on our way home. We had stayed at 4* hotels which cost half as much as our stay here.

The first room we were given was very hot, and the a c could not be adjusted as it was controlled from outside the room. We had to upgrade to a superior room. This room had a c that could be adjusted- so we were cool-, but the bathrom was dirty and shabby. I would never stay here again and would definately not recommend this hotel.
