We booked 5 nights in an Executive King for our honeymoon, but had our fingers crossed for an upgrade based on what we'd read on this site. Sure enough at check in, when we explained we were on honeymoon we were given a large corner room/suite with sea view which was about twice as big as the standard room. Having executive benefits paid for itself, from the airport transfers, hot breakfast, afternoon tea, drinks and snacks available all day and the alcoholic drinks and canapes (including a large cheese selection) in the evening.
The hotel is small compared to others in Jumeirah and beyond, but doesn't suffer from it. Service in the bars, beach and reception was first class, and all the cleaning staff said hello everytime we passed them in the corridor - some even greeted us by name which was a nice touch. The concierge desk was superb throughout, and helped us with bookings in restaurants in other hotels, the shuttle bus services to the malls and arranging a dhow dinner cruise. The Sky Bar on the top floor was a really nice place for a relaxing cocktail in the evening.
We ventured out to the The Walk a couple of times but didn't eat out there. There are a couple of supermarkets on the upper level that are really useful for topping up on water, snacks etc. at sensible prices.
If I had any criticisms they would be that on a couple of ocassions the room service missed out a couple of things (no bottled water, fresh large towels), but the cleanliness of the room was superb. We only ate once in Oceana (the main hotel restaurant) and weren't particularly impressed with the range or the quality of the food. Not having free wireless also is annoying, especially at a 5 star hotel, although I know most hotels are the same about this. I would also query whether the en-suite bathroom was up to a 5 star standard - I would expect a seperate bath/shower, and it looked a little tired. But these were all small points and didn't detract from our experience.
Overall we had a fantastic stay and would definitely go back to the Hilton again.
