We arrived at the hotel at a very early time and were told we wouldn’t be able to check in until later, luckily they found a room within a couple of hours, so we were able to sleep after a long and tiring journey. The staff were super helpful and extremely friendly, the concierge and front desk staff are superstars. We only stayed for a few days and didn’t get the chance to use their very inviting pool, as we were too busy exploring the local area. Close to the beach, with a lift that takes you straight down to it, and markets; it is on a very nice area. Room was very clean and everything worked perfectly with a balcony that looked over the beach, and made for some great photo opportunities. Read less

We have just returned from Ja ocean view hotel . We had a club room with a fab sea view . We were travelling for 50th Birthdays and our Wedding Anniversary . The hotel is in a brilliant location , the hotel is immaculate and very well run . We stayed between 15th -19th March . Unfortunately during our stay the corona virus escalated and some facilities in the hotel had to close . We were kept really well informed at all times . The restaurant had to scale down from buffet to waiter service . The staff handled the situation very professionally this was an extremely difficult time for them but we couldn’t praise them enough . When this dreadful period in time is over we will 100 percent be returning to the hotel . Thank you to all the staff . Regards Mr & Mrs Randle Read less

We had a lovely stay at this hotel which is in a fantastic location. The staff and management could not be more helpful or friendly. We stayed at a very difficult time (coronavirus outbreak) and just prior to the shut down of all hotels and the airport at DXB but we always felt confident and secure that the staff were looking after us and all other guests during our stay. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone wishing to visit Dubai once all the troubles are over. Read less

My husband and I had spent 4 weeks touring New Zealand in a motorhome. We decided to have a 3 night stopover in Dubai on the way home. This hotel is very nice. The room is large with a balcony facing the sea. The food in the main restaurant was very tasty and there was always plenty of choice. All staff were friendly and helpful. There was a lovely swimming pool but the sun only reached this area for about an hour in the morning and an hour in the afternoon. This was due to the high buildings all around. Beach mats, towels and a parasol were all provided for a trip to the beach 5 minutes walk away but it’s not very comfortable lying on the sand. Read less
