Radisson Blu Resort Sharjah
Ranked #6 of 79 Hotels in Sharjah
Reviewed 27 February 2013

Having taken a holding pattern above Dubai airport at 2:30am waiting for a landing slot, we found the hotel most welcoming at 3:30am. As a family of 6,they got us adjoining rooms with connecting doors. You've got to hand it to Radisson, they do maintain a consistently great standard across all their hotels. As others have pointed out, the rooms are probably due for an upgrade in the near future but that doesn't detract from the charm of the place.

We didn't visit Dubai during this leg of the trip, nor did we feel the need to as this part of the Dubai experience was all about unwinding for three days before ramping up for all the sights. And that probably describes how the Radisson Sharjah works best - use it as a chill out leg of your journey when all you want to do s chill out by the pool or relax on the beach and not journey into town on a whim. Our children (10,9, 6 & 3) all rated the pool and facilities very highly. Impeccable but not pushy service. Food was excellent. Would go back as the rates weren't bad for Dubai standards.

Nice hotel and the location is very good! It has its own private beach with play area for kids and 4 temperature controlled swimming pools (2 for adults and 2 for kids) and free wifi is available anywhere. We arrived at the hotel at 1:45pm since check-in is expected to be @ 2pm, Zaid from the reception told us there is no availbale room at the moment and told us to wait for a while and the room should be be available at around 2pm so we went to the cafe for a snack. There are several choices of restaurants inside the hotel but when we ate at their cafe in the lobby, I was quite diasppointed because I was looking for several choices of sandwiches and food for kids but they had sweets in general - cakes and croissants in sweet flavors. Anyway, the staffs in the cafe were friendly and attended to us very well. We came back to the reception at around 2:15 still the room is not available and we had I think 3 follow-ups until we finally got our room number at 2:45pm!!! Zaid apologized for this but hopefully this should be avoided because we had made a reservation with booking.com and upon confirmation it was mentioned that they had informed the hotel of our booking. Ok we're finally in our room and it was nice and clean! We had a very nice view from the room overlooking the sea and the city. We requested for a baby crib and toothbrush (provided on request) and they have sent us quickly but when somebody knocks on your door (there is no doorbell) and then you peep at the hole, you can not see the person clearly because it is blurred, I think they need to be replaced now. I can't say it is 5 star at this time because there are many new hotels now but I admired this hotel because even if it is already old they have preserved its beauty and the staffs are all nice and accommodating esp in the cafe & resto in G floor and the pool area, the room rates are not that high and the location is excellent! The buffet dinner in G floor is not really good, there are few option of food - only 1 soup, 1 pasta, few viands but finger foods and desserts came in many choices. Overall, my stay was enjoyable and I would like to go back some time.

This ex-Intercontinental hotel still preserves its beautiful atrium, and is one of the oldest hotels in Sharjah. The reception was both friendly and efficient at check in & out. The room was clean & spacious, and both breakfast and internet included in the price, something you would not find in other 5 star hotels. Certainly a face lift is needed, and softer pillows could be appreciated by someone like me, but still it offers a good value for money.
Commuting to Dubai, where entertainment and drinks, are more readily available, is a nightmare due to traffic jams, therefore, if you are looking for a place to relax, then is a good choice, otherwise head to Dubai. I was on abusiness trip and this hotel was close to my visit location.

Why Sharjah if Dubai is that close?!

Hotel-wise there is not much nice (any more) at this place. The Raddison Blu was developed in the 70s and used to be the best place in town (locals confirmed). Well, we are in 2012 and not much developed since.

Don't do it. Even if you have business to do in Sharjah, take the taxi ride and go to Dubai. Far better choice!

First of all let me say that I am very picky when it comes to hotels, but the RB Sharjah exceeded all my expectations. From day 1 I was impressed with the hotel. All rooms have a sea view, and my business room was a great spec for the price - massive bedroom with 2 double beds, separate dressing area, enough wardrobes to suit a large family and of course bathroom with bath and shower. Fresh fruit on arrival, nespresso machine, ac, mini bar etc etc and all very clean. The hotel is located right on its own private beach, and plenty of pools to choose from. The hotel itself has just undergone a massive refurb, and was super clean and modern. It's the staff that really make a difference here - by day 2 they all knew my name and always keen to help with a smile! The food here is absolutely fantastic - if you're from the UK forget everything you associate with the word buffet - this is a class of its own! Masses of choice every mealtime and even a special section for the kids too. I will definitely be staying here again - a very, very pleasant stay. I thoroughly would recommend this to business travellers and families alike.

Room Tip: All rooms have sea view so no worries here.

Most enjoyable stay. Very friendly staff. Although very quiet the food in the Chinese restaurant in the hotel was very good. Will definitely stay here again!
Complimentary shuttle bus service to Dubai and back twice a day should you need it, which you won't after you've seen Sharjah.

Room Tip: Beach cabanas are an excellent choice for families looking for a resort holiday!

Had a most enjoyable stay at this Radisson property. I enjoy gold status in the Club Carlson loyalty programme and from the very first minute until check-out I was recognised as such, which is not always the case. Mr. Anar made our check-in in the middle of the night a pure delight and Mr. Kamal did his utmost to make our stay hassle-free.

The Calypso restaurant by the pool served excellent food which we tried on several occasions. The private beach was clean and there was plenty of sunbeds although the hotel can get busy at times. The breakfast area was also busy but staff was very efficient and the food on offer was very good.

The spa too was very good and my wife did several treatments.

I would definitely return if I ever go back to Sharjah.

Room Tip: Some rooms have just been renovated so ask for one of these.
