Overall, we’ve had a great time and enjoyed our stay, The rooms are clean, modern and tidied everyday to a high standard. First of all, if you have a small baby, I would ask for a room towards the front, our room (319) had a great view looking over the pool and marina, however the sea plane is extremely loud (we didn’t have a problem with this)… Read more
Overall, we’ve had a great time and enjoyed our stay, The rooms are clean, modern and tidied everyday to a high standard. First of all, if you have a small baby, I would ask for a room towards the front, our room (319) had a great view looking over the pool and marina, however the sea plane is extremely loud (we didn’t have a problem with this) but it would definitely wake a little one in the morning. Secondly - ALL INCLUSIVE PACKAGE. The all inclusive package is not very well designed and it is unclear what you can have and where etc. Unless you walk around with the sheet that is provided upon check in you are not going to remember the “rules”. For our first 3 days breakfast was fine and we were provided a Diet Coke when we asked for it around 10:30 with breakfast (I do not drink juice) however on day 4 this suddenly became a problem and apparently I wasn’t allowed this. That is fine if that’s true but I shouldn’t be told different things from different staff members ! The resort is so big you need to be given a map, on which restaurants are where it’s not very clear. However staff are always happy to help and jump on a buggy when needed!! Overall food was good, didn’t once have a bad meal. Be careful what you order though, we ordered prosecco in Vasco de gama on every night and this was included in our all inclusive package, but when we ordered prosecco from the restaurant apparently it’s not included there?!! We were not told this and why would it be different. Luckily reception staff took it off our bill in the end.... but just be careful! VASCO DE GAMA - super chilled vibes in here for cocktails and popcorn! East meets west play here and they’re fab! Such a wide range of music from current chart music to queen to Rod Stewart. Anything! BIG SHOUTOUT to MAK. He made our stay so warm and welcoming and if you are lucky will have a quick boogie with you. He works very hard and your glass is never empty with MAK! We love you! All of the bar staff in here are amazing :) WHITE ORCHID - this is even more chilled here. Very beautifully presented too. HAZEL AND YANG are the duo here and we cannot fault them. We would come back JUST FOR THEM! They take requests and can literally sing anything. Hazel has a bloody fantastic voice and she’s such a beautiful singer! Her business partner ;) YANG absolutely nails the acoustic guitar and also has a fantastic voice. We absolutely LOVED karaoke with them on a Wednesday in sports cafe. The Itinerary of what is going on ( which you can access from the tv) is incorrect and needs updating, as a Brit I love a good schedule so followed it and found ourselves arriving too early for performances. SPA - we cannot fault this one bit the SPA it was one of the best massages I’ve EVER had, and I’ve had my fair share all over the world. The staff are so friendly and smiley and Would do anything for you! Amazing. SWIMMING POOLS - there are 3 pools all super Clean and all have swim up bars. The pool staff are SO helpful and super kind, always checking our chairs are okay and helping with the umbrellas. Our favourite was “PP POOL” right in front of the lobby. Staff here are amazing and the lifeguards never take their eyes off the pool!! WATER SPORTS - water sports at the beach are included in the all inclusive package between certain times. We tried paddle boarding and kayaking. The staff here are very helpful and funny!’ We had a fantastic afternoon trying to paddle board. I didn’t catch his name but the man there was trying to Teach us made our “lesson” a very funny one!!!! Highly recommend. Lastly there are free shuttles to the mall and Atlantis water park which is very helpful!!!! We would love to return x Read less

STAYCATION IN LUXURY RESORT In this review I will give a few good tips to making your stay at JA resort perfect First of all, we had a fantastic week at JA Beach Hotel. This was primarily because we had researched what the hotel had to offer. So, let me help you with some good advice. 1. One of the best things about the Resort is the heated pools. We relaxed at the pool every day and enjoyed the pool bar. The beach was fine as well, but we mostly stayed at the great warm pools. 2. If you want to see attractions everyday then book a hotel in Dubai city. The JA Resort is located 30 minutes outside the City and is best used for relaxation with maybe one or two trips outside the hotel. We did one trip where we used the hotels free shuttle busses. Worked very well. 3. VERY IMPORTANT: Book your stay with all-inclusive or even better ultra all inclusive. The food is VERY expensive if you do not have all inclusive, and there are no alternatives close by. Fortunately, we had ultra-all-inclusive giving us access to all 3 hotel's restaurants (Palm Tree Court, Beach Hotel and Lake View). With ultra-all-inclusive you get to eat a 3-course meal for lunch and dinner every day. If you prefer buffets, maybe you don’t need to choose ultra. This was nice, so we as parents could enjoy service and dining and not just the buffet. This meant that we dinned a 3-course menu 2 times a day at one of the resorts many restaurants. Unfortunately, that meant I gained a few pounds. 😊 4. The food was top notch. For lunch we ate at one of the beach restaurants and in the evening, we dined at one of the Resorts many good restaurants. I can definitely recommend the White Orchid or the Italian Sette. Great service and delicious food. For example, I got a wonderful truffle carpaccio, tasteful seabass and a lovely pistachio semifreddo all served with a delicious Montepulciano wine. So, an ultra-all-inclusive experience that does not compromise on the food and service. Plus, they would always make something for the kids like chicken nuggets and fries. We also liked the breakfast buffet at Beach Hotel and enjoyed the omelet made by a young woman. 5. The rooms and balconies are small for a 5-star hotel and if you want bigger order the rooms at Palm Tree. For us 3 the room was fine and the cleaning good. 6. There are many great activities at the resort. My wife enjoyed their spa (and she recommends the Less Stress Massage 90 minutes with the masseuse Tanya). She says is was very professiona Read less
