“THE most spectacular location, view and hotel”
Reviewed 5 May 2007

Stayed at this magnificent Hotel in November 2005 with my Mum on the way to Egypt from Australia. The facilities were just fantastic. Our room was spacious and well appointed. Bathroom with a bath and seperate shower. Free internet. We were lucky enough to have a room with a balcony. I recommend you request one when you book. The staff especially the conciege were always willing to assist us with tour bookings or have a chat about what we planned to do or what we had done.

We had breakfast every morning at Beachcombers overlooking the white sand, the Arabian Sea and the truly magnificent Burg al Arab Hotel. Such an amazing building no matter what time of the day or night it mesmerises you. It is forever changing with the rising and going down of the sun.

Swimming in the Arabian Sea under the Burg al Arab was wonderful as was swimming in the huge pool and treating ourselves to a cocktail at the swim up bar.

We took a trip in the desert by 4 wheel drive with a tour and had dinner in a bedowin camp. A great night, great food and great company with tourists from all over the world. Flushing toilets too!!! The only thing I would say is that the belly dancing went on a bit long. At the end of the night they turned all the lights off and we all laid down to view the stars. Amazingly we observed a shooting star in a sky that was black with bright stars all over it! Breathtaking!

I would recommend Jumeirah Beach Hotel to anyone wanting a luxurrious and special place to stay out of the heart of Dubai city but well within reach of it by cab. It is quite pricey but if you can splurge you will never regret it. Remember we only live once and this is a once in a lifetime luxury you just can't miss!

Loved Dubai! Can't wait to go back.

Stayed for two nights while passing through Dubai recently. Great hotel - as good as ever - wonderful gardens and grounds and space to hide way if you want peace and quiet. Best of all - the staff - one of their maxims is 'the first answer to a guest must never be no...' Great hotel - Can't recommend highly enough

I do not recommend the Jumeirah Beach Hotel. Having just spent nine nights there (April 2007), I am pleased to be home. I should have taken the demand to pay 100% of the holiday up-front as a warning signal.

Check-in was a fiasco. We had booked for nine nights, but the hotel had us down for two (and later in the holiday tried to check us out three days early). Having booked four months in advance with a need for two adjoining rooms, we found our family in rooms at opposite ends of a long corridor. The hotel agreed to move us the next night, asking us to “not unpack”, effectively delaying the start of our holiday by 24 hours. New rooms weren’t ready until the evening of the next day, and we had to request two extra beds for our children four times.

Food was fine in most of the restaurants, but more expensive than in neighbouring hotels with better settings (e.g. hotels that didn’t have scores of plastic sun-loungers cramped together like JBH).

Curiously for such a badly managed hotel, most of the staff were excellent, in particular those on the beach and at the Sinbad’s club.

One final point: during our stay the hotel took extra authorizations on our credit card as our spending levels rose. I’ve only ever experienced this in the cheapest of hotels before, and certainly never in one purporting to be five star. Their lack of trust in their customer’s ability to pay was insulting. Overall the JBH hotel felt trashy.

Stayed in the JBH in December 2007 - this is 5th Hotel I have stayed in Dubai after the after the Fairmont, Hilton Dubai Creek, Jebel Ali and Mina Salam - and must rate up with the Mina Salam as one of the best.

JBH certainly isn't cheap, but like most things in life you get what you pay for. We had a large room that overlooked the Al Burj.

Check-in was the only negative point - arriving early we were told check in would be 14:00 - they gave us a mobile phone and said to expect a call when the room as ready - this call came, but not till nearly 15:00 --- however wine and chocolates in our room to apologies were a nice touch ---- again like most things in life you get what you pay for.

Ate in 3 restaurants - The UK Pub, the beachfront and also at the Wild Western - all the food was excellent - although buffet breakfast was a bit of a scum - use those elbows! Ice creams on the beach were a nice touch that I could get used to.

Would definetly stay here again.

Have just returned from a 7 night stay at the JBH. This was our first
visit to Dubai and was for my husband's 50th birthday. We took our 13
year old daughter with us. None of us have been able to fault the hotel, room, food, staff etc were all of a very high standard. Check in at 2 o'clock in the morning took about 5 minutes and check out was
equally easy. We booked a Premium Leisure room so we had complimentary afternoon tea each day between 3-5pm and then hot & cold canapes and as much wine/beer as you wanted between 6-8pm. Wonderful breakfasts served including Chinese, Japanese, Arabian and everying inbetween. Again staff attitude was very friendly and helpful, and food and service of high standard. On hubby's birthday he was given a bottle of bubbly and choccy cake. Each evening there would be chocs or soap left on the pillows, together with a different
towel animal each night. Would recommend being met at the airport by the hotel as they fastrack you through customs and straight out to a waiting car.

We tried several restaurants in the hotel, all were very good but prices in line with a decent London restaurant. On hubby's birthday we had dinner at the Burj, in the Al Mahara, again food very good but approx £150 a head for 5 course meal with wine and water. The JBH
is definitely nicer to stay in.

Excursions driving over sand dunes are good fun, especially if you have a child with you.

Beach lovely and were always shown to available sunbeds. Quite breezy
this week and quite a lot of jelly fish had been blown in, which kept
us out of the sea for a couple of days, but swimming pools fine.

Hadn't been too sure about how to dress before we went, but found it not a lot different to at home. Shorts, tshirts and sundresses acceptable in most places including shopping malls and excursions. Just the restaurants that tend to be more formal.

We will definitely go back to the JBH in the future.

Just returned from a 7 night stay at the Jumeirah beach hotel with my much better half and my 8 year old son.
Having already stayed at the neighbouring Al Qasr hotel we thought we would try another Madenat hotel, we agreed on the Jumeirah beach hotel only because it has complementary access into Wild Wadi water park so our son and myself of course! could enter anytime as not to disturb the sleeping dragon!! oops i meant to say the wife sunbathing by the pool .
On arrival at hotel we had to wait for 1 hour just to try and check in, there were 2 receptionists on the desk with 20 or so guests!!!!
When we finally got to the check in desk everything ran smoothly telling us our room wasn`t ready but they would give us a mobile to contact us as soon as the room was ready and we were promptly shown through to a dining area to have breakfast.
After breakfast we sat in the lobby ( it was raining very hard outside!!!), just waiting for that important call, i do realise and appreciate our room had not yet been vacated as check out is at 12 noon and check in is 2`o clock . After sitting around from 10`o clock it is now 1.30 trying to get some sleep and trying to amuse an 8 year old, we were told our room was still not ready but they had three maids in there doing there best, after another hour passed it was really getting annoying so another trip to reception this time we were told by a different member of staff that because the people in our room had payed for late check out we would have to wait even longer!!!!. thats just great considering you pay for your room from 2`oclock, the time is now 3.30 so management was involved this time and after another 30 minutes we were eventualy shown a different room, at least it is alarge clean room and had a balcony as specified. call that 5* service?
Now to the hotel , it is a great hotel for kids as they are very well catered for, from youngsters with there own pool with kids club upto teens who have there free access to Wild Wadi.
if you are a couple and want a little peace and tranquility i would seriously think about another hotel as round the pools can get very noisy from kids, this isn`t a whinge, remember i have a child myself.
Eating at the hotel in the various restaurants was ok but very, very expensive, you are better of going to the souk , free hotel buggies take you to the neighbouring hotel MINA `A` SALAM where it is a short stroll to loads of eateries.( it is cheper to buy cans of coke/sprite etc from cafe`s and take them back to room than pay stupid mini bar prices,better still go shopping to carrefour at the mall of the emirates and stock up)
In general we found the hotel to be just about adequate but definately not 5* maybe 4*, yes the staff were friendly and polite but it can`t disguise this is now an old hotel with large occupancy that can`t be catered for .
would we go back ? no .
why ? having stayed at the neighbouring hotel Al Qasr the gulf in difference from ulimate luxury to just another good hotel is huge.
we only opted for the Jumeirah hotel because of the free entrance into wild wadi but i would rather stay at another hotel and pay to get in,!!

My family stay at Jumeriah Beach hotel has been one of the greatest holidays we have done.
The hotel service from the pick-up by limo to attention to detail in anything they did was absolutely spot on.
We upgraded to premier lesiure and were give a beautiful room.Our 10 year old son was very well looked after in the Premier lesiure lounge area which along with pre dinner drinks, canapes and afternoon tea made the upgrade a sure must.
To pull back the curtains in the morning and have the view of the Burj-al-Arab staring at you from 500 meters makes the hotel a must visit.
We cant wait to go back in August this year.
One word of warning about August, it is low season for us brits when you book it for a reason. make sure you can handle the heat of up to 120 deg.
It didnt affect out stay and this is the reason for going back in the same month.
Happy Holidays
