Stayed here last week for five days, and thought it was a fabulous hotel. We have been to dubai twice before, and stayed at the westin the first time, and the one and only the second time, both on jumeirah beach. Whilst this hotel is a long way out, this does make it an incredibly relaxing sanctuary, and a cab down to jumeirah only cost about 70D (c.£12) and took about half an hour tops. The distance didn't bother us at all, and didn't stop us enjoying the dubai nightlife and finding cabs to take us back there in the small hours wasn't a problem at all. The staff were amazing (I honestly can't remember such a lovely welcome to a hotel) and the rooms are just beautiful. I went with a friend and had a room overlooking the polo field - the bathroom situation was a little awkward for friends as there is no door, but we overcame this by just staying on the other half of the room while the bathroom was being used! We had another friend who needed to stay with us for one night, and the hotel kindly gave us an additional bed in the room for no extra money - this is typical of the helpful attitude of the staff.
In short, don't be put off by the distance, and if you fancy some relaxing time as well as seeing the sights of dubai this would make an excellent choice over some of the large hotels on jumeirah beach.
