Called for three days to the mina a salam on our return from the Maldives. Greeted at reception like royalty. Offered fresh orange juice, towels as we walked through the door.. Upon our arrival at reception we were completing our check in and their systems recognised we had stopped at a jumeirah hotel previously so they had all our details already. Fantastic, service on a very personal basis commenced. We were offered the opportunity to upgrade our room, which in the scheme of things would have been a very reasonable price anyway, however we chose to upgrade our whole package. The receptionist upgraded our package from a view overlooking the gardens, to an ocean view with a balcony on the fifth floor, directly overlooking the burj al Arab hotel. The service upgrade we elected for, included a special lounge, where breakfast, afternoon tea, canapés and happy hour (champagne included) were enjoyed, with no more than 6 other people being in the lounge at any one time. The service was very personal, always on a named basis and the chef and waiters after the first day, remembered all our preferences for food and drink. Made our trip special. We knew how expensive Dubai is for drinks (alcoholic and soft) and food so the upgrade was definitely worth the money. The hotel is part of a complex and a sail around the waterways and a walk around the souk in the complex left a positive impression and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend any of the accommodations. The hotel is superior to jumeirah beach hotel where we have previously stayed (which in itself is great anyway) and definitely merits its five star rating. Next time I would try to book a deal where you pay for bed and breakfast and get an automatic upgrade to half board ... That's the reason I give 4 instead of 5 stars for value ... However all in all I would say we had a perfect stay, and are looking forward to going back again to the mina a salam next year for a similar short break.
