“15th Wedding anniversary”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

The Mina Seyahi is an old hotel. Even though recently refurbished, there are signs that it just does not compare to the more grander hotels within the Jumeriah stretch.
Don't get me wrong, the staff are fantastic, the kids club and the team that run it are the best we've ever experienced. The quality of the food is great, but the variety a little poor but with the half board concession you can visit the Westin hotel next door and experience a wider range of food, i.e. the Italian, Thia, Grill restaurants too. All amazing!
My main issues: 1) The bathroom has a tiny tub for a shower use. The show ever does not have a hose system for showering kids. Most Dubai hotels offer a separate shower cubicle.
The Latitude bar is poorly staffed at night, it can take up to 15min wait to get served or even acknowledged. If you are looking for a Shisha they use an outside company to provide this. The shisha staff are grumpy and miserable. Also at the latitude shish close at 11 and at the Barista bar by the beach side (mostly for outsiders) at 11.30-12. Now they don't keep their times so things can closer much earlier. This is the worst evening bar and Shisha service I have experienced in 15 years of travelling to Dubai. Would we stay again. Only for the kids club and the value for money compared to the other hotel costs.

I would like to thank all the staff at Le Meridian for a terrific holiday. My two daughters and I stayed at this hotel for ten days in July this year and cannot praise the staff enough. From our arrival to our departure we were treated like princesses, spoilt daily by the room staff and especially the boys at the door who hailed the taxis. They were great with information where and when to go places. The food was fabulous with plenty of choice from a number of restaurants. Anyone going to this hotel has to try the bubbilicious brunch held on a Friday at the sister hotel next door, a day and night to remember, well nearly remember.....will definitely return to this hotel soon.

Room Tip: Every room is high quality.

Dubai was our lasts stop after travelling Europe. We checked in at 1:00am and we were pretty tired we were greeted with light refreshments on arrival and made very welcomed into a very clean big room. Breakfast was included with amazing selection and of high quality however it did not stop there. I requested help from the front office to book a surprise dinner for my partner and I, it was done immediately and private car was organised everything was never an issue! We both work in customer service and to recive the standard we experienced has left us telling everyone thank you to all the staff!

Room Tip: Get the beach view amazing!

A friend and I stayed for three days in Le Meridien and were treated to pure luxury. After arriving after midnight, we were greeted warmly with tea and dates and a cold flannel (very important and refreshing). Nothing was a problem for any of the staff at the hotel. We paid extra for the breakfast, afternoon tea and cocktails which basically covered our food whilst we were there and worth every penny. The pool and grounds are beautiful, as are the views over the Arabian Gulf, Palm Island, Atlantis Hotel and Burj al Arab. Whilst there, we did the Big Bus Tour, which considering the summer heat, was extremely worthwhile. This included a hotel pick up and drop off every hour on air conditioned vehicles and free wifi. The price of the ticket also included a Dhow cruise down the creek which was stunning. The ladies in the information point were beyond helpful, organising an evening desert safari, with Planet Safari. The price for this would have been worth it just for the desert bashing, but it also included a camel ride, BBQ dinner, henna painting and traditional dancing. Dubai is a truly wonderful place made better by out stay with this hotel. If you need anything here, just ask....nothing is a problem.

This is my 5th stay at the Mina Seyahi . I hadn't been for 7 years , so it was nice to go back to the hotel we often stayed at when my kids were younger . We booked two room , they kindly upgraded us to sea view rooms which was a great start . Very friendly staff , thoroughly enjoyed our stay . Hotel looks lovely now that it's been refurbished . Kids club was brilliant ! Kept my 9 year old daughter very well occupied , in fact she was happy to go everyday and join with the exciting activities planned for the day . Domy and Vanessa at the kids club did a superb job in entertaining kids.
The only thing I would say is the quality and variety of food needs to be improved. With all the competition in Dubai with hotels , I feel if the Mina could improve food wise , no doubt this would be the best and perfect hotel in the region as they certainly have that personnel touch that other hotels don't seem to have.
Would definitely recommend staying here and look forward to going back next year.

Room Tip: Recommend sea view

we enjoyed 3 nights here, as a family of 4 and thought it great - room and food very good.We moved on after 3 days by prior booking to Mina a salam for 7 days which we enjoyed too, but my wife preferred this hotel - better pools and better swim up bar and slightly more upmarket feel about the place while the Mina is a bit false and Disney like ( without Mickey of course) - The buffet here at breakfast and dinner was excellent .

Room Tip: sea view best

Excellent 5 star hotel with use of the Westin facilities as well. Beautiful private beach with lifeguards and the sea was warm as a bath unbelieveable. A pleasant setting among trees where there was plenty of shade. We had dinner and breakfast at the Blue Orange restaurant in the Westin, a buffet which was excellent. I would thoroughly recommend a stay at this hotel, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view on floor 4 or above ,watching the sun set and the activity on the sea is amazing
