I stayed here for business recently. I had read some earlier reviews on here, and they are mostly accurate. This is a beach resort hotel , so you will get lots of kids, and sunburnt parents! Also lots of Russians, but that is par for the course. I did enjoy my stay, as the rooms are indeed very comfortable. All have floor to ceiling windows and seaview. They are large and well equipped. Good bed, with crisp linen sheets. Free wi fi (!), and large bathroom, with walk in shower, large bath, bidet etc. Also more toiletries than you could ever need, including sun block, very necessary.I also rate a hotel on bath towels, here 4, very large towels, very good. Turn down service good, and lots of bottles of water. I had trouble with the aircon, I could not get the temp below 21deg, despite several visits from the engineer. I might add that I raised this at 11pm at night, and the engineer was up within 5 mins!
Service generally was very good, if a little obsequious, both in and out of the hotel. Personally, however, the hotel gave me the inpression of an upmarket holiday camp, the Mandarin in HK it is not! However, as I have said, it is a Beach Resort, and comfortable, rather than luxurious. The lobby is too small for the size of the hotel, and there is sometimes a wait for the lifts.
Others have commented on the breakfast which is indeed splendid, huge selection from all over the world. Also, they had plenty of room to deal with the large number of guests, which was impressive. As far as the other restaurants were concerned, I had the asian buffet at Beachcombers, which was only adequate. The Dhow & Anchor was a nice place for an outdoor, happy hour drink. We had a Gala Dinner in the conference Centre, which was a mess. Very slow, and the shoulder of lamb was unrecognisable.
The Conference Centre was very good, for the business seminar, (Bimco), the staff worked very hard to put up the backdrop, and throughout. The food during the day in the Conference Centre was good. I thought the hotel was expensive, but this is Dubai!
Personally, Dubai is not to my taste, 39deg already in April, humid, with the staff in the 24th Floor Bar, turning the cushions every 30 mins, owing to condensation. As people have said, there are good beach facilities, etc, but in that heat, I made little use of them. I had a look at the Mall of the Emirates, and prices were a little higher than UK!
