“"Another superb holiday at this amazing resort"”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

I have just returned from yet another fabulous holiday at the amazing Dar Al Masyaf, this is the only place that I can truly relax in whilst away from home.

I stayed in the same Villa as previous stays , requested by me as usual .A lovely room overlooking the waterways with a partially shaded and private balcony to sit and watch the Abras gliding silently over the water .

This time my Butlers were Prasanth and Ronnar , each superb ,professional , friendly and helpful who always greeted me with a smile. Prasanth was our day Butler , he booked buggies and Abras made restaurant reservations , delivered Ice , really anything you requested was no trouble at all. Ronnar was our evening Butler who again carried out the same but who also served us the evening drinks at Sundowner ..a lovely way of meeting fellow travellers of which helped make the holiday a special one.

Guest relations Manager Thomas visited many times to ensure that everything was as expected , Thomas was my point of contact prior to checking in and each request made by me was carried out effortlessly and to perfection.

The pool outside is an added bonus , just steps away from the room ..a peaceful alternative to the main pool at Al Qasr . Lifeguards watch constantly over the guests , even with the heat bearing down always greeted with hello and a smile .

The Housekeeping is exemplary , rooms cleaned twice daily , fresh towels and bedding in abundance all carried out by 2 young men who never showed any signs of dissatisfaction whilst working through the 9 rooms in the Villa .

The Al Qasr breakfast restaurant Aboretum was as ususal fully stocked with all sorts of fresh pastries, fruit . juice , breads, cold cuts, and cooked breakfast whether it be Asian , British , or Continental totally delicious.
Adam , Rory and their staff work tirelessly to maintain the very high standards throughout , even when the restaurant was at full capacity they found time to chat and ask whether anything further was required .

After breakfast I took the short walk to the beach , here I was always greeted by the beach attendants and beach butlers with a friendly smile. The beach attendants had the towels in their arms before I could ask and quickly showed me to any bed I requested , they laid the towels out and before I could sit down the Beach butler arrived with Ice and complimentary water .

After a morning on the beautiful beach, interspersed with short walks to the pool , I visited the Pool bar and restaurant . The menu here is a comprehensive one ,on arrival I was shown to a table where upon Iced face towels were offered - a welcome gesture in the heat .The food and ice cold drinks were served by the staff without delay, I tried many of the dishes and drinks and each one was delicious .

After a relaxing lunch it was time to return to the Villa pool , either by Abra or Buggy ....the drivers and boats men and woman swiftly and safely delivered me back , a quick shower at the side of the pool and back in the cool pool -bliss !

What more can I say , every member of staff I came across couldn't try any harder to deliver the service Jumeirah is famous for ...doors were opened , helping hands when necessary offered , smiles and friendly greetings by all .

I cant wait to return in September ..I know staff will greet me by name and the amazing experience will start all over again ..

Thank you to each and everyone for making Dr Al Masyaf the only place I want to stay whilst in Dubai :-)

We have just returned from a short stay in a villa at Dar Al Masyaf it was amazing. This was a birthday trip for myself and what a present it was just the most beautiful place with a staff who go the end degree for you. Our gulf villa was a few short steps to the pristine beach where you are offered icy poles and cooling mist spays by the ever diligent resort staff. We arrived early at 7.30 am not expecting an early check in but were taken to our villa within a few minutes a blessing after a long flight and a lovely surprise. Evening drinks provided by our butlers was so relaxing and the choice of restaurants endless also breakfast by the main pool also very picturesque. We were so sad our stay was only for a few days and now understand what many other reviewers have been talking about we will definitely be back the Dar Al Masyaf exceeded our expectations by a mile.

We have recently experienced our 2nd stay at the Dar al Masyaf/ Madinat Jumeriah, where we also celebrated our wedding anniversary. It was truly outstanding.
The hotel is absolutely stunning. The flower displays in the lobby area are magnificent & a beautiful welcome.
We booked the half board option which is a good if you would like to try the various cuisines & try different restaurants around the Jumeriah complex.
Our favourites, Carnevale & La Parrilla (Argentinian) the steak was fabulous, & Junsui (Burj al Arab) There is a small supplement to pay in some of the restaurants, but it's worth it.
As mentioned in other reviews you can take either a golf buggy around the complex or an abra around the waterways which is a unique way to travel & some good photo opportunities of the Burj in the background.
We would recommend the villas, as they are in a great location & you get the complimentary drinks with your butler.
The whole complex is a credit to the all staff, who pride themselves on making your stay truly memorable.
To sum up. If you're looking for luxury & a memorable experience. This is it!
We will return!!

Room Tip: Dar Al Masraf area. Villa 9 block is a good location with a beautiful pool just a few steps away.

From the first moment we arrived to the last moment saying good bye we were blown away with the ambiance, hospitality, accommodations, and the care everyone took to ensure our stay was beyond amazing. The butlers were very attentive, and the service from housekeeping, transportation to wait staff and servers was exceptional. The activities, entertainment, food, the beach, pools and atmosphere exceeded our expectations. We felt like we discovered paradise.
Wonderful place to spend time together taking in all the beauty , relaxing, and just being and doing nothing. There is something for everyone, and is suited for couples or families. We did a package deal to stay in a villa with 24 hr butler service, happy hour each evening, breakfast, and a choice of lunch or dinner. We are foodies and love discovering and trying new things. The variety of resturants and quality of the meals was fanastic. Our last night there we went to the Sky Bar, which was a nice finish to our time at Jumeirah Madinat Resort. I look forward to returning in the near future. We truly found paradise on earth. It is worth it. Best vacation ever.

This was our 3rd stay at Dar al Masyaf. Once again it was amazing. The staff who looked after us in Villa 10 were a credit to the hotel, Qasim, Jean, Simon, Ankur and Dipendra were a great team. They ensured our room was cleaned to its usual high standard. Ankur always looked after us with
respect and care at happy hour. The hotels offers a great range of restaurants to dine at and
the half board is of great value. The gym is up to date with a huge choice of equipment and classes to suit all fitness levels. The yoga classes were very enjoyable and of a very high standard. This resort has all you could wish for. The pools, sea,the waterways, the rooms,palm trees, the abbras all make the resort truly relaxing.
We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and can't wait to return,

Room Tip: All rooms are of a very high standard. A real treat would be to upgrade to a gulf view room.

We recently stayed at the hotel for a week on half board option. On arrival we were upgraded to a beach villa number 3. Room is fantastic size with possibly the biggest bed I have seen. Butler service from Rhett, Hassan and Neil was fantastic, they are a credit to the resort!!
The whole experience was as good as we have ever received during many years of travelling to Dubai.
Fantastic resort if you have a family with superb access to pools and the beach. The fact you travel everywhere by the relaxing abbra or buggy only adds to the experience. We will definitely be back!

We have recently returned home from another wonderful holiday at the Dar al Masyaf. From the moment we arrived with our friends we were warmly greeted by all of the staff and this not being our first visit welcomed us home. This hotel is definitely a home from home. It was also special to be welcomed back to the hotel by Thomas Renton, who made it clear that they would do everything to ensure we had a good holiday. The holiday was fantastic! As always everything was pristinely clean, our rooms were looked after by Qasim, who made sure everything was kept to the 100% high standard of the Dar. He is a credit to the hotel. We stayed in Villa 10 and were looked after by butlers Jean, Simon, Ankur and Dipendra. These are the people that turn your holiday into a magical experience. They do everything to ensure that you have a fabulous time. The hotel is great for couples and families and we would not hesitate to recommend it to anybody. Happy hour 6-8 with free drinks is a great opportunity to meet other guests. A fantastic choice of restaurants we would recommend Pai Thai and La Parrilla. Also lunch at the Burj in the sky bar is very special with some great views. We were staying half board and some of the restaurants needed a supplement but they were worth every dirham.
The hotel is set in superb surroundings and the gardeners should be very proud of their high standards. Likewise the beach and pool staff are the best in Dubai and remember us from year to year.
This hotel is faultless in our opinion and we have recommended it to lots of people. We can't wait to go back. Thank you to everybody at the DAM and we will see you again next year.

Room Tip: Villas 9, 10 and 11 are near pool and beach, but all the Villas are fabulous
