Having stayed at a number of luxury hotels here in the UAE I can confirm that for me Marjan Island Resort was one of the best. From the moment you arrive at the hotel you are made to feel welcome & the staff really go out of their way to ensure you have an enjoyable stay.
The hotel itself is located on a man made Island (much like the Palm Jumeirah) and it is a very quiet and serene place to be. The hotel itself is decorated in traditional Arabic style & is beautiful - you really do feel that it is a luxurious place to be. The rooms are huge & contain all of the facilities you would expect. It is ultra modern with touch screen controls for the rooms & large balconies to relax on. Our room looked out over the pool & the sea - it was amazing.
The hotel has a large outdoor pool, two indoor pools, a spa, children's playground, and a boardwalk area that looks out to sea - with an amazing sheesh a bar from which you can experience sunset over the Arabian Gulf.
The beach is a short walk away or the hotel can provide golf carts to take you there. The water is shallow & calm making it an ideal place for families with children. Sun lounges are in abundance & always available.
We ordered room service which was reasonably priced & arrived promptly - the service in the room was impeccable. We also had breakfast in Al Liwan restaurant which had a very good Buffett selection including, pancakes, French toast, pastries, fresh juice & much more.
I have seen a lot of negative reviews on a trip Advisor & I struggle to see why. There may be teething issues due to this being a newly opened hotel, but the only negative we encountered was allow check-in.
I really recommend the Marjan Island resort & definitely plan to return in the near future.
