Dar al Masyaf and the Jumeirah complex are a mesmerising dream in Dubai. We had a very relaxing stay, were completely pampered every day with lots of attention, little gifts that kept surprising us. The food is spectacular in all restaurants, the views, the relaxing little pool by the Villa, all very well designed to make you chill. I cannot finish this review without a big acknowledgment to all the hard working staff working outside in the heat, from the gentle and polite buggy drivers to the lifeguards by the pools, the waiters and waitresses, they are all really amazing and professional people. Our butler Stan also went the extra mile to make us happy, he is a star. I can't wait to go back! Read less

The hotel offers the escape you need to feel like you are away. Great staff and they really looked after you, with some going out of their way. The abra rides were magical and a huge thank you to Najeeb for his service and going out of his way to make our abra experience that extra special. Only thing I would fault is communication to the staff on what restaurants are open, what is included and discounts if any on any extras. No one seemed to have answers and this together with recommendations to make the stay that extra special would have been good to see and something the hotel could easily deliver which could set it apart. Overall, a few issues but overall a great escape with great staff and delivered to what we needed from this trip. Read less

Hello! We would like to leave a review about our wonderful holiday at Madinat Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf! This is our second trip to this fabulous place. Separately, we would like to express our deep gratitude to the girl butler named Sali, she is a professional in her field, she helps to solve any questions, she is always very polite and friendly, her work with guests is just 10 points out of 10 ⭐️! Thank you Sali, thanks to you our stay was comfortable and we left with a great desire to return again! We and our friends were accommodated in two rooms 1104 and 1103 in villa number 11. We checked in as soon as we arrived at the hotel, without delay. The main advantages of this villa are the pool is very close, large and comfortable rooms and, most importantly, the silence around, everything is as we wanted, since we were vacationing with children. Buggy service is very fast and comfortable. Regarding the sea: clean, well-groomed shore, rescuers are always on guard. Food: breakfasts have become scarce, unfortunately, perhaps due to quarantine measures, but it is obvious that in 2019, breakfasts were much more varied. Among the restaurants, I would like to highlight the Tortuga Restaurant, excellent cuisine, huge portions and polite staff! In general, if you want to get into a fairy tale, then you need to go to Madinat Jumeirah !!! Read less

We've stayed in Madinat Jumeirah many times, but it was our first time after (during) period of Pandemic. I can say that this time was even better, than all our previous stays. The service is very high as usual, beaches and all the territory are very clean. Buggy service is very fast and comfortable. We've arrived at the hotel early in the morning and our room was ready for us. The room service is very good too, as usual. Want to say a great thank you to our butler Sudath from villa 7. He've made our stay even more comfortable, solving all our requests and being all the time friendly and very helpful. I would like to note the high service and very delicious food in the restaurants, especially Arboretrum. Enna and her team are doing a really great job! We visited this hotel a lot of times, but never faced such a great atmosphere, high service and fantastic meals like it is now in Arboretrum. The breakfast will offer you a variety of fresh juices, fresh pastries and food for any taste with very friendly staff. Thanks to Enna this restaurant became our favorite in Madinat Jumeirah. Overall, this was a fantastic stay again and we will return for sure with our whole family. Read less
