“Worst Experience Ever!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2013

We stayed at the four-bedroom villa and when we first arrived, we found that it was not cleaned. The garbage bins reeked as they were not emptied from previous tenants . The bedsheets weren't changed; there were stains and hair all over the bed! The toaster in the kitchen had crumbs of bread in it and the kittle was rusty and dirty. We spent the first night of our stay calling housekeeping again and again having to complain about this or that.
Another thing which was especially annoying during our entire stay is noisy neighbors who, in our case, were very loud and the kind who stayed up all night partying by the pool. It is unfortunate that the management allows a group of men such as those to stay in a villa in this compound which is supposed to be "family-friendly". They were allowed to have visitors and play loud music all night long and no one said or did anything about it. We complained about the noise and disturbance from those neighbors several times and they would quiet down for 15 minutes or so then everything returns to the way it was.
The breakfast buffet was not what you'd expect from a 5 star hotel; limited choices, bread was stale and vegetables were not properly washed! The mall is about 5 minutes away from the villa, I suggest you have breakfast there instead.
And to be fair, there were few good things about this place: friendly staff, clean pool, and the 5 minutes walking distance to the Emirates mall.

I have stayed in 4 star hotels in Europe which were a lot better for a lot less money than this villa. I don't recommend this villa to anyone.

Stayed August 2012, travelled with family

The food, service, and quality make this place a home away from home. Poolside breakfast was peaceful with just the right amount of music playing.
The mall is very close and has an indoor Ski center where you can pet a penguin.. SERIOUS A REAL PENGUIN.. The Hotel has a private garage and security monitored 24 hrs a day. The villas are furnished Plush with great style. We ordered room service and the food was incredible. I highly recommend this for private parties.

If you don't mind high cost, this villas definitely should be your first choice especially if you are big family ,each villa can accommodate up to 8 adults comfortably .The villa has 4 spacious bedroom + allot of extra like your private car garage , living rooms ,kitchen each bedroom has its own bathroom , The compound has middle shared big garden with big swimming pool , The staff are very nice. Daily breakfast and location near Mall of Emirates is a big bonus

I travelled to Dubai for a business event with a few colleagues, staying at this hotel/complex for a few nights. It's clean, spacious, cool and easy to enjoy. The communal kitchen and living area was very large, with a dining table, sofas, flatscreen TV etc.

My bedroom was big, had internet services (cable or Wifi), a spacious bathroom and another TV. My only grip is that security seems a little on the thin side, and I felt nervous about leaving anything lying around. The door to the communal area was nearly always open, and various staff walked in and out of the place, even when I was having lunch and not fully dressed!

But this is a nice place, with a decent swimming pool and friendly staff. It's a little out of the way of the main Dubai attractions, though the indoor ski resort isn't too far away.

had a great stay but from the moment of check in noticed the staff not too attentive which we found out the property was in the middle of a management change. this was reflected with staff attitude and slowness of service. couldnt fault location or rooms. you have to understand you are staying in a villa with other people but you dont need to use common areas if you dont want to. we had our luggage gone through and our jewellery gone thru but when we reported it (nothing missing) the Owner acted quickly and checked security footage etc. This did not stop us enjoying our stay and made us better securer travellers. One point watch out for the washing water in the laundry - it stinks. Oh and Dubai amazing place.
