“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 1 September 2012

Quite simply the best hotel and resort I have ever stayed in. The friendliest staff, beautiful grounds and absolutely first class accommodation. Great selection of restaurants and lovely food.

Special thanks must go to Islam in the Jasmine Lounge who always makes us so welcome and cannot do enough to make our stay perfect.

Special thanks to depandra at the Ankor and captain bar. Really loved the hotel top notch.Just didn't really like Dubai.What I mean is I missed banter on the beach with the sellers ,beach bars and so on.getting a cheap beer and buying toot.Got a bit board of the same old same old.
Don't pay extra for the lower floor rooms unless you tend on staying around your room and making the most of it as it costs a lot more.Food was super in every restaurant especially the sports bar soooo cool there.loved the boat trip we done this 2 times.great all inclusive deal everything is included.Thanks to everyone there who made our holiday so special.

Room Tip: Don't pay extra for the lower rooms unless you make the most of them.

One day back in the UK and looking forward to the next visit.
Been going to Jebel Ali for many years now was the best in Dubai 20 + years ago and still the best resort, for that total allround holiday.
You can do as much and as little as you like.
You will be invited to do all sorts of things,but not pushed in anyway.
I would urge you to say yes and enjoy meeting all kinds of people from all around the world.
Great staff,always a smile,noththing to much.
Food well above what you would exspect from a hotel.
A+ all round.

Room Tip: Sea views a must for us,but the whole outlook is is a treat.

Our 4th visit over the years,and probably the last. Now the resort is all-inc, it's obviously a lot busier, and I think standards have slipped. From not getting our room of choice, to beeing refused entry to the Buffett restaurant on our 1st night for not wearing long trousers, but a smart pair of tailored shorts, only to return with a long pair of trs, to find guests dining in shorts. Not what I expect from a 5 star resort. Absolutely no consistency. Then we had the dis-pleasure of witnessing drunken behaviour from a large group of people who were on a 4 day corporate jolly. Not the holiday experience we were hoping to have. On the positive side, the resort is kept very clean, the food in all the restaurants is of a very high standard, especially The White Orchid, and mst of the staff are very friendly.

We have just returned from our second holiday at the Palm Tree Court. We had a wonderful time first time and didn't think it could be beaten. However,it was just as good if not better! The all inclusive package is fantastic as the food is really really gorgeous. The restaurants are all great. We especially liked the captain's bar and the Italian. The service is exceptional throughout the resort. Everybody smiles at you. I would like to make special mention of Anish behind the pool bar at the Palm Tree Court. He was incredibly efficient and friendly. Please pass on my high praise to him. He is a credit to the hotel. Cannot fault this hotel. Wonderful food service surroundings......it has it all. As long as the prices do not go up then we would love to return for a third visit next year.

This was our 4th visit to Dubai and me my husband and 11 year old son decided to book allinclusive at Palm Tree Court Dubai. A week before we went we were informed that Palm Tree Court was closing for refurbishment and that we were being transfered to Jebel Ali Hotel for 4 nights. We stayed at Palm tree court for 3 nights the rooms were very large and spacious with everything you could wish for. We stayed in room 291 which was a small walk through lovely gardens and waterfalls to the pool and restraunt areas. All of which were fantastic great choices in the restraunts, tip make all your meal reservations on the first day, you can change them later if you wish. We stayed on the 5th floor in Jebel Ali which had 2 rooms and a bathroom all of which were beautifully decorated and comfy. All the staff could not do enough for you always happy to help. We really enjoyed this holiday and it was great value for money we will defernately be returning next year.

Room Tip: Make sure you book on the allinclusive package it is great value for money.

Just returned from a week at the Palm Tree Court and once again, the hotel lived up to expectations. As is was my 7th visit, i emailed ahead to request a few room preferences and i was very happy on arrival to find that the hotel had managed to accommodate all my requests. The renovations have been carried out well and i cant wait to go back next year and see how the current upgrades have turned out.

The food and drink are still fabulous and of a very high standard, consistent to the rest of Dubai, but better value for money. The cleanliness is second to none, but it is the staff that excel here. The hotel manage to retain their staff and this is where it adds value, as they all remember you from before and this is such a great thing that many other hotels in Dubai lack, as they must have thousands of guests.

I had an accident in the gym on one of the machines and the staff did all they could to help at the time, offering ice, bandages and a buggy back to my room and a nurse if needed later. My ankle is still not healed but getting there.

The hotel was the busiest i have ever seen it, probably due to Jubilee celebrations in UK and the fact the PTC had finally decided to close for 4mths and reservations had been switched around. This did cause a few delays and made restaurant bookings more difficult to obtain than usual and also added to queues at the bars and beach restaurants. As such, i would say that service did suffer more than is normal, but i do not think this would be the same at other times of the year. We have been so spoilt in the past, that is was noticeable this year sadly- but didnt ruin the hotel.

The All inclusive is great and covers almost everything on the menu and "proper" drinks, although i did notice that there were some inconsistencies with what drinks you could have in one bar versus what you coudl have in others...for instance the Rose on the all inclusive was available in most bars but not others ? No idea why it isnt just the same drinks available everythere, across the board? Still no idea why fruit juices arent on the list, but that's just being picky and nosey!!

I thought the in room play stations a great idea, but did baulk at the 40 Dirhams daily charge for renting a game. Surely that should be a weekly charge or the daily charge should be reviewed to something more affordable?

These are just minor qyuibbles and i still believe PTC and Jebel Ali offer one of the best value for money holidays in Dubai within a ersort that offers almost everything you could possibly need. I am definitely goign back next year as standards remain exceptionally high and the hotel continues to improve it's offerings and move with the times, giving the customer what they want- watch the rest of the hotels follow on All inclusive.

Room Tip: We had room 177- right by the beach, near the hotel and on the ground floor- ideal!
