“Treated like royalty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2013

We were there in April last year (sorry just discovered Trip Advisor!)
Honestly I felt like a princess - from check in to check out we could not have asked for more - rooms, service, food, resort ....... Simply the best

I've written reviews for the LRM before so please see those. The reason for the new review is that for the first time I stayed in the Royal Tower (RT) last week and it was just superb.

For those not aware the hotel has three sections. The main hotel, the Club Tower which is a higher standard with more amenities and the Royal Tower which is better still. I got to stay in the RT for the first time last week and you cant fail to be impressed.

Seperate check in from the main hotel is located to the left of main reception and is more of a personal experience rather than just standing at a desk. The room was very spacious and oppulently decorated and had seperate large shower, bath and wc and the giant sized bed was very comfortable. A bedside controller allowed you to activate lighting, etc from your bedside without fumbling around for switches.The views over the bay out to the Palm and across the Dubai skyline were superb.

However the main thing for me was the 24 hour lounge where as its name suggests complimentary food and drink are available throughout the day. So if you fancy a lunch or if you have the munchies after a night out in Dubai just pop along to the lounge located on the first floor. Access is for RT guests only and a seperate key card is used in the elevator to enter the lounge.

The RT is not cheap, but in reality if you're using the lounge you don't need to buy food and drink from anywhere else !

Our first impression was sadly marred by having to wait nearly 3 hours before we checked into our room!
In all the times we have travelled to Dubai we have never had to wait more than a few moments. Five Star we expect our room to be ready. After all we booked in October !
We did get a apology from the Hotel that evening.
We are mid stay on a weeks break so I will reserve my views until our hol is finished.

We have just retuned after a 5 day stay at the hotel. This is our 5th time here and it just keeps getting better every time. We used to stay at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, however that seems to be going down hill hence why we moved to the Le Royal Meridian a few years ago. I travel a lot with my job and stay in a lot of nice 5 star hotels around the world and i can honestly say that this hotel s top of my list. Pam the General Manger and her team have thought of everything to make your stay most enjoyable down to the smallest detail. Like the heading says just perfect.

Everything about this hotel is 5 star. The grounds are the best part, several pools, a section of beach and an abundance of sun loungers means that although its a large hotel, it doesn't feel too congested.

We stayed in a Club Room on a recommendation and would definitely advise paying the extra money to stay in one. Had a lovely view of out towards the Atlantis Hotel. Club room guests have breakfast in a separate restaurant, which is nice as it isn't too busy. The breakfast selection was the best of any hotel we have ever stayed at, plenty to choose from. Also as a club room guest there is afternoon tea served in the club room which is nice out on the terrace, and pre dinner drinks for 2 hours every evening, which was lovely.

The hotel and the grounds are very clean, the staff are helpful, and the rooms are spacious and clean. Even though there are lots of other luxury hotels in Dubai of a similar price point, i would choose to stay at Le Royal Meridien every time for its understated elegance. In summary, can't fault a thing and can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Book a club room, well worth the extra money.

Yes wow!!..This hotel is amazing, staff are amazing very friendly, service was excellent from the moment we checked in, this hotel is real 5 star,rooms are amazing we stayed in a tower room views of the sea and city, nice pools, huge garden areas, straight on the beach plenty of sunbeds (no need to reserve) Food in hotel was was so good we didn't eat out, situated on the start of " the walk" nice for evening stoll , and in walking distance to marina and metro station for trip to Dubai mall, which is well worth a trip. Taxis are plenty and cheap.The hotel has very nice shops bars and restuarants, If you are half board you get an allowance to eat in the many of the restuarants around the hotel. If we return to Dubai this is were we will stay...

Room Tip: Go for high tower rooms with sea view.

Stayed here for the second time. And is was almost as good as the first time.

Rooms, beach, pools, restaurant and most important the service is still one of the best I have ever experienced. It makes this hotel a fantastic place to be.

The one thing the management should re-think is the music. The new Shades bar is great, the band that played is too loud and their quality does not match that of the rest of the property. A top hotel requires top music. Same for the music in the new mexican restaurant/bar. The playlist was good, it was just too loud. We had a drink a left. I would reconsider the sound level.

The last thing is a bit more complicated to resolve. The property next door has a lively outdoor club that plays dance music until the early hours. I like the style so it wasn't too much of a problem. However you can hear the music in the room, certainly when the window is open (did I say that the room had a balcony with a million dollar view?).

Would I come again? Oh yes. Would I hope for a change? Oh yes.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms in this place. Only difference is the view. Anything that has seaview is grea...
