I have been holidaying at JA Resort for over 10 years, visiting twice a year staying at all 3 hotels. On my last 2 visits, August 2021 and more recently May 2022, I have noticed that standards have slipped and the hotel is offering less and less on the AI basis. The Bebe bar at Lakeview is not available on the Ultra AI package, all you get is happy hour 5-7 where you can have 1 set cocktail (not your own choice) each night, then you have to pay, but you do get a 50% discount which might account for the fact that this bar is empty every night! Shooters is no longer a steak restaurant but now serves Tex-Mex food which is nowhere near the quality of the steaks previously offered! Kinara the much publicised, Indian restaurant is now not included in the Ultra AI package however, you do get a 150 dhs contribution to the bill! Divas is no longer a restaurant, and the Bateaux Dubai is also no longer available to book! There are more and more little chefs hats appearing on the remaining menu’s. Service is still excellent, however it does appear that these little cost cutting exercises are impacting on the overall experience the Resort used to offer making it less value for money than in previous years and as more and more hotels in Dubai offer AI this could be a mistake! Having spoken to other guests who are frequent visitors this appeared to be a common concern, all expressing that the hotel doesn’t offer the same value for money any more. Having been told by a previous General Manager that the Resort relies on a high percentage of returning customers I feel if this isn’t addressed this could be a problem for them going forwards! One more visit in August (already booked) for our silver wedding with family and friends will ultimately make up our minds if we need to find a new holiday destination for 2023! Read less

JA Beach was a last minute deal for a bit of sunshine and a break from all the woes of the last couple of years. This place went beyond any expectations we had, the resort was immaculate, the staff were all nice polite pleasant people and a joy to talk to. I could not get over how clean and well kept it was. The pools were fantastic a special mention to Rocky the pool attendant, he went above and beyond to keep everyone happy, and I mean everyone. On its busiest day he seemed conjure up an extra lounger or towels and always made sure we had water. Someone in management should give him a pat on the back. We will be back just as soon as we can. Many thanks JA Beach and Dubai. Read less
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Lovely hotel. Some changes since our last visit. Check what you are having is included if you are all inclusive.

The staff at the hotel are absolutely fantastic. Kush in the swim up bar was amazing, attentive and polite. The pool attendant was always available to help with beds and umbrellas making life so much easier. The food and drink was good. Some changes on the all inclusive we were not happy with and we missed the cocktail bar and dancing.

Nice stay, great room with sea view. Very supportive and friendly staff. I'd like to name the following exceptional ones: Wishwa - service f&b Snow - service f&b Imran - consierge Zwel - consierge John - Pool sport activities Hope - front desk May - front desk Sofi Amar - front desk management There are a lot of great and friendly people, I didn't mention by name ... sorry for that. Positive as well: daily still water in bottle from room service. There are a few things, we would like to mention: All drinks at restaurant/bar are VERY expensive! There is a nice beach with benches and towels, but the view goes to the site of the new palm Jebel Ali so there is no view to the open sea. On the other side you can see the biggest container harbor. The resort offers a shuttle for Dubai. It takes approx. 1,5h to the Dubai mall. In total: It was a nice stay and we enjoyed our holiday. JWH Read less
