Luxury at it's finest. The friendly staff were amazing from upon entering the hotel to housekeeping. Al Naroofah is the best Lebanese restaurant I have ever been to. The Hotel is away from the hussle of the city. But easy to get around!

It was the hotel I reserved for this summer vacation. The service of the hotel, especially the kindness and consideration of the hotel people, was beyond description. The hotel facilities and atmosphere were overwhelming from check-in, and the room was a series of exclamations.

I stayed at Zabeel with family and 2 kids and the room was a great size, the restaurants available were great as we could use any of the Jumeirah hotels. We were very impressed by Amala the Indian restaurants where we dined twice.
