I chose this hotel because of the location, JA Ocean view is in walking distance of the Marina, the Beach, the Walk and Bluewaters. I also used the tram and metro a lot, having a stop so close to the hotel was also very helpful. The room I stayed in was a superior room on the 21st floor, with a beautiful view of the ocean.

I chose this hotel because of the location, JA Ocean view is in walking distance of the Marina, the Beach, the Walk and Bluewaters. I also used the tram and metro a lot, having a stop so close to the hotel was also very helpful. The room I stayed in was a superior room on the 21st floor, with a beautiful view of the ocean. I cannot complain with the size of the hotel room which I had. The bed was more than big enough for me to sleep in and my photographer was given a very comfortable camp bed. The sofa was very comfortable and a great addition to the room, as was the kettle and free bottled water. It was a lovely surprise seeing the animals made out of towels and the cake which was delivered as there was two birthdays during my stay. One of the things which really annoyed me was the noise of the nightclubs on the beachfront, especially on Friday night, this carried up to the 21st Floor. I had a night with no sleep, which made me feel awful the next day. The hotel should warm anyone staying of the noise, so they can prepare for a loud night. The food in the hotel is incredible, from the buffet to the a la carte restaurants I was spoilt for choice. The afternoon tea on the 24th floor was a lovely addition to my stay. The highlight of my stay was the infinity pool overlooking the beach. The water was always warm and it is a great place for watching the sunset.

We selected this hotel as one of the best value-for-money options (excluding apartments) in the district of Dubai Marina. For a relatively reasonable price (compared with other chains’ offers) the hotel offers good rooms with view at the sea, direct access to the JBR promenade via an overhang pool level, and a nice restaurant. For the latter, though, we couldn’t fully enjoy its (from what we heard) rich buffet menu, because of the Covid-19-related restrictions… We weren’t quite happy with the service. Unlike in the other hotel where we stayed just before that with similar restrictions and where everything was served perfectly, the staff here would every time forget what we asked for and would bring something totally different – or simply not enough, as if begrudging the products – not quite the level of service for a 4-star hotel. Speaking of the ‘cons’, we weren’t satisfied with the size of the normal double room – it’s just too small for a couple with children. So for those who need more space and yet stay in this district – perhaps look for apartments. At least that’s what we’ll do for ourselves next time.  Coming back to the positives, and as already mentioned, the hotel is overlooking the bay – the view from all of the seaside rooms should be beautiful both at day time and at night. It’s on the left side of the JBR side,but you easily get to the center of all action from there, and thanks to a nice shortcut via the outdoor pool you don’ even need to go via the lobby – pretty convenient if you’re returning from the beach with towels and lots of wet stuff. The pool itself is nice, made in a way to create an effect of ‘infinity’ pool – with the water surface going into the sea at the right angle of photo shooting. But unfortunately, some protruding structural objects (for example, the lift to the promenade) may make it difficult to achieve. The most unfortunate thing about the pool is that it’s positioned in a way that for most of the day span it’s covered by shadows of the nearby skyscrapers – unlike the similar pool of another hotel across the street. I used the word ‘unfortunate’ because we can’t classify it as definitely good or bad. During our stay in March it was rather chilly so we wanted more sunshine – but I can guess that during the hot season more shadow is actually welcomed by the guests.   To summarize our review in short, we think it’s a very good option for a stay in Marina for a couple of days – great location, caring staff, nice views. However, if you plan to be there for a longer time, you should really consider apartments – you’d get all the same benefits but at much better conditions. And let’s be honest – with the selection of restaurants at JBR – who needs even half board or breakfast at the hotel? Better go out to enjoy new food every day at the beautiful promenade. Using the chance – I only want to wish all the staff of the hotel to stay well, safe, and keep their jobs – so you can continue servicing the guests at your high level when things get back to normal.It’s partly thanks to you that UAE and Dubai were continuing to live full life even while most of Europe and Asia were already ‘on fire’ –so thanks to you for that, and stay strong!
