Our second time starting at the Dar Al Masyaf, the Madinat resort is exceptional and great for us as a family. If I had to pick an improvement it would be the updating of the rooms at the DAM. The other Madinat hotels are more modern than the DAM.

We returned to Dar after a 6.5yr break. Although we had returned to Dubai several times we had opted to stay at other resorts. Dar is amazing, it was like coming back home, the Gulf summer houses are now nice and freshly renovated and have remained spacious. The landscape is still well maintained , food is amazing we loved Aboretum as it's ideal for young kids but the quality of food served there is amazing. Highlight of the moment was seeing Sanjeewa (Abra tour) he remembered us after 6.5yrs and even rembered the Villa we stayed in last time.He got to meet our two young girls, he is such an asset to Madinat Jumeriah. Thank you very much for such an amazing experience and you remain my favourite hotel in Dubai Read less
