We stayed here for two nights on our way home to Perth WA from Scotland. The staff couldn't be more welcoming. The hotel is modern and has everything we needed for our stay - a good variety of restaurants and cool places to have a drink or a coffee. Well-located and close to the beach and The Walk and plenty of access to taxis. The pool area and deck are lovely.
Just what we needed to finish off our trip. Thanks to all - especially Aziz who was a charming and attentive host.
Would definitely recommend this for either a stopover or a longer stay.
Phyllis & Tom

Room Tip: Upgrade to a Junior Suite if you have the opportunity - well worth it!

Stayed 15 nights with wife and 6yr old during July/August. Hotel is bright,vibrant & modern. Rooms are a good size & the hotel is in a great location, a short walk from a nice public beach & the JBR walk with its selection of shops/restaurants. Dubai Marina is also nearby. As others have commented, there is some building work in progress on the JBR Walk but this did not impact on our stay. Breakfast had a good selection and my 6yr old was kept occupied in the kids zone while we chilled in bar taking in the entertainment/music. Super friendly staff in a genuine way and I mean all staff regardless of where they worked in the hotel, every request was accommodated. The pool has a good view of the beach & was great for relaxing/lounging. Made full use of the free wifi & shuttles to the malls and to the sister hotel with its facilities & private beach.
I would like to give special thanks to our room attendant Pathma Johnson for his patience & to concierges Merry Pereira & Rajender for all their help & attentiveness during our stay.
I have no hesitation in recommending the JA Ocean View.

Just got back from staying here and an overall good hotel stay.
Metered taxi from DXB is approx 25 mins and cost around 90 dirhams. Located on one end of the JBR walk.
Check in was straightforward. Rooms are nice and bright with sea views. The construction of the new beach open mall is finished pretty much. Low rise so you get a great view of the beach still.
Good strength wifi (free) in the room and a very spacious one too.
Brunch is 249 dirhams with the booze with a good variety of food.
There is a Brazillian churrascarias restaurant called Fogo Vivo. Had to be done, great meal. Shout out to Juan for the meat cuts and Mahesh who took care of us.
Whistler is on the top floor (I think) and offer wine and cocktails. Had their wine tasting during the week and think I know my wine a little more ;)
The Deck do cocktails and food. Go at happy hour, which is daily.
Shuttle Bus is free to malls and souks but they should make it clear on how long journeys take!
Overall a very good stay.

Stayed here for 3 nights in August. Was very hot outside and therefore I hardly went out. I was on business so it wasn't the perfect hotel for me. Whilst the hotel is nicely decorated and furnished, its not very comfortable to work in - and at the weekend I hardly could get any internet connection (WIFI was 100%, just so many people were using it I couldn't see my business web sites). Having stayed at a very nice hotel (Grand Hyatt) just before, I was a bit disappointed considering the high rating of the hotel on Booking com. Its between average and very good - so the 'average' rating I have given it is a bit low because I am comparing it to a 5*. I also found the desk very uncomfortable to work at because its not really designed for that. Plus the air conditioning directly hits you if you sit at the desk.

Only having 4 lifts isn't ideal - when its busy, you have to wait a bit. again I was spoiled in the Hyatt (16 lifts!)

Breakfast was average - whilst I ordered coffee, it didn't turn up twice out of my 3 mornings. I didn't eat here in the evening.

There's a good supermarket on the plaza level near the Ramada hotel (not the small/expensive one behind the hotel). Beach is very nice (if you're on holiday and its not 47 deg C outside!). posh shops and cinema on the beach walk.

Room Tip: Near the lifts I guess - but it might be more noisy from people in the corridor. I think all rooms have an ocean view so if that's your thing you'll be pleased.
