Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf at Madinat Jumeirah
Ranked #7 of 561 Hotels in Dubai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We have just come back from our second stay at the Dar Al Masyaf and we are so glad we returned.

We are regulars in Dubai and also at the Jumeirah Hotel Group properties and whilst we have stayed at the Mina and JBH which are both great the DAM is our favourite.

It's got everything you could want in a hotel... You can have privacy (in your own villa) or spend time in more family orientated communal areas. Each villa has its own private pool area but you can use the facilities of the large central pool at the Al Qasr or even FREE access to Wild Wadi.

Make sure you use all the Jumeirah Complex facilities, bars, spas and restaurants and you will not get bored, in fact you are spoilt for choice.

The one minor criticism I have is that if you are out on the edge of the complex then it does take some time to get a buggy or Abra (small boat) to transport you to you destination. This has definitely got worse since Jumeirah has decided to allow non guests to have pleasure tours on the boats, so allow time.

However all in all a great holiday.

Dar Al Masyaf is one of the little semi hidden treasures of the madinat complex.
What we love about it, is that even though we live in dubai and it takes 15 mins to get to this hotel, you really are in a little oasis.
We have always had fab rooms, that either look onto the sea or are very private and quite.
The happy two hours in the villas are a nice little bonus to.
The staff are always extremely helpful.
The abras are lovely to ride around in in the night, and there is so much going on in the madinat

We have stayed at the madinat nearly every year. We usually stay at mina but this year we thought we'd try out the d.a.m
Tip - get the upgrade in villa if you have a young family (the ones nearest the beach) if you want to take advantage of the kids club and beach/main pool area.
If you want some peace and also take advantage of an exclusive pool stick with the standard villa.
When we arrived we ordered a delicious afternoon tea with champagne delivered to our villa. It was lovely.
The villa was beautiful with your own personal butler who will do anything for you and they book all your restaurant reservations for the duration of your holiday.
Buggys will assist you around complex.
The restaurant on the pier is quite pricey however we went in valentines night so this was probably why.
Fantastic kids club one of the best! Fantastic pool supervised by lifeguards. Fantastic! Try to get the half board package sometimes free.
The souk at the hotel is really lovely but if you want an authentic souk I would ask concierge.
Mall of emirates very good especially ski Dubai. My 4 year old had an encounter with penguins which was brilliant.
We love Dubai and annoy think if anywhere to march BUT never travel July August time with kids it's just too hot although cheaper to travel than.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Dar Al Masyaf, third time staying in Dubai and in our opinion you can't beat this hotel. There is so much choice, from restaurants to pools and the beach. It's fantastic. We are 2 adults with a 2 year old and it's the first time i have put him in kids club and i felt so comfortable. The staff were great with him and the security is amazing. I especially like that they enforce kids to wear life jackets around the pol and there's barely 3 metres between lifeguards. We also had a babysitter one night and again although i was wary having never done it before they made me feel completely comfortbale and we managed a lovely dinner alone.

I was worried about getting round the resort with a buggy, on and off the boats but this wasn't a problem at all. The staff are all very helpful.

Our butler was amazing and couldn't do enough for us. It really is 5* service at this hotel and we can't wait to get back!

My only advice would be to avoid school holidays as we overlapped by two days and the difference in wait time for boats/food etc was noticeable as the resort gets busier.

Able to check in early (8am) after landing from an international flight. Our friends were checked into the same villa as us and the butler was exceptional at helping us with any arrangements we needed to make. Staff were all amazing, so patient and helpful! Nothing was too much trouble and they had thought of everything we could have possibly needed in the rooms, including extra bottles I water before we were heading into town. Rooms beautiful, spacious and very clean. Excellent bathroom amenities. Will definitely stay there again.

Just returned from our second trip to DAM and again I was blown away by just how good this resort is.From the minute you enter the reception to the time we checked out , every one could not do enough for us.
Our butlers were brilliant , Dida and Samuel in villa 16 , every thing we asked for was answered with a yes , reminding me to make restaurant bookings and even suggesting they print my boarding passes to save time at the airport.
The resort it self is in a superb location and is kept pristine by an army of staff who always say hello what ever they are doing.
All the restaurants we eat in were of a high standard , my favourites were MJ's and villa beach at the JBH .
Already planing when I can go back!

We stayed 4 nights on our way back from the UK to Melbourne Australia and found a gem that we have vowed to return to next year. Dubai has blown us away on our first trip here but this hotel is outstanding. We love travelling and have stayed at some great places like the Savoy in London but we have not experienced such a mind blowing experience as this hotel. It is huge, on the beach and the staff (from all over e world) will do anything to assist you. We stayed in Villa 6 (Suite 601) with it's own butler to do everything for you. With 40 odd restaurants and a massive pool there are buggies that work like taxi's to take you to wherever you want to go. We walked 50m to the beach (very warm H2O) and ate at brilliant restaurants. Recommend Jumeirah Beach Villa restaurant overlooking the Burj Al Arab which you also must go to for afternoon tea (expensive but an absolute must do). It is expensive but we came during the Ramadan month and got a pay 3 nights and get a 4th night free - the package included 2 meals per day at any of a host of top restaurants. It was very hot in July but their air conditioning is brilliant. Expensive but a once off lifetime experience that I sensational. We plan to return next year and stay longer.

Room Tip: We only stayed at the villas that were great. Room 601
