Dubai Beach, Dubai Beaches and beyond

The hotel

As Dubai addresses go, you can’t get better – with neighbours including the sands of Jumeirah Beach and the yachts of swanky Dubai Marina, Habtoor Grand Resort, Autograph Collection rubs shoulders with attractions like Sky Dive Dubai, The Walk, and Souk Madinat. Habtoor Grand Resort, Autograph Collection is packed to its sky scraping rafters with luxurious features being its Elixir Spa, infinity pool, children’s water slide pool; and its huge swimming lagoon, set to a backdrop of tropical greenery and iconic Dubai high-rises. The 13 bars and restaurants are just as show-stopping – crossing the globe with a poolside Italian, South African steakhouse, Cuban bar, and countless other international dining experiences, until you reach The Underground Pub – which transports you straight to London with its pool table, big-screen TVs, and British menu.

Nice hotel, professional staff, good cleaning services (Sandra was extremely helpful). There was a line to enter the restaurant for breakfast every morning. Too many people in busy hours 10 am - 10:30 am. It would be great to extend the breakfast time.

We have just returned from a 7 night stay at this hotel. Whilst we had a relaxing holiday, this hotel did not meet my expectations at all. Be aware of the All inclusive package, it’s not what you would expect! At the pool bar you are only allowed certain drinks (there is an all inclusive menu to advise what these are, if you are wanting any of the other drinks on offer then you have to pay. Food is NOT part of the all inclusive package at the pool bar so be aware of this. At the other restaurants eg Lucianos you are only allowed the meals with the ‘knife and fork’ symbol again any other options you will have to pay extra for. I totally agree with a previous reviewer, avoid the Grill restaurant in the hotel, we had to wait until someone noticed we wanted a table, not something I have ever experienced in Dubai, there was no one to greet you and honestly because we were all inclusive we were made to feel like second class citizens. You can only have water with your meal but we were never asked if we wanted any drinks to which we would have gladly paid for so they lost out there. I also felt that my meals are ‘thrown’ at me as though they wanted you out of the restaurant which made me feel uneasy. The food was also average and nothing to shout about. The buffet breakfast was average, I’ve had better, pastries were about the best thing. We only had food once at lunchtime in the buffet restaurant, the food on offer was not a lunchtime choice in my opinion so we never bothered again. We didn’t even have our evening meals there, for one reason because if the breakfast choice was anything to go by and the other reason the hotel was far too busy and it felt like a fight to get your food! The food at the underground pub was the best for me, plenty of choice again look for the symbols and all part of the all inclusive until 11pm. Service was good too! Sun beds were saved everyday so you had to be down by the pool for 9 in the morning to get a spot. Be aware that they do remove the towels if no ones on them or no belongings are on them which I do get but this on a couple of occasions caused some arguments between the pool guys and the holiday makers but on the other hand local residents were coming in taking 5 beds just plonking their stuff down on all of them and then not using them! Not quite sure how this was fair!? I have to mention Paul and Imrhan at the pool, their service was brilliant and are a credit to the hotel. Would I return to this hotel, no I wouldn’t whilst we have had a much needed break as like most people have needed due to COVID, this hotel was average and the all inclusive package was a let down.
