My husband and I stayed at the Waldorf Astoria for my 50th birthday in February 2020. The hotel is absolutely stunning in every way and the staff are truly amazing. We were upgraded to a room with a stunning view of the Burj Al Arab many thanks to Hershey for arranging this to make my birthday extra special – thank you Hershey you were absolutely amazing. The staff in the Mezzerie restaurant were all fantastic with a special mention to the restaurant manager and to Sani who was truly fantastic and made every meal time an absolute pleasure – thank you so much Sani we will never forget your kindness. The hotel is so opulent and grand and all the staff provide exceptional service at all times. The pools and beach are perfect and again the staff are amazing – plenty of loungers, towels and iced water. The food is excellent quality, fresh and a fantastic choice at all times. Thank you so so much for making my special birthday the best I could have wished for and more. We are hoping to be back very soon.....Mr and Mrs Moore Read less

Somewhat delayed review but my husband and I stayed here for the second time for a week in May 2019. We had another great experience. The hotel and the rooms are beautiful and clean. Staff are knowledgeable and attentive. There are plenty of towels and sun loungers to go around and the staff will help you get set up at the beach, bring an umbrella over etc - I was particularly impressed by that. No one wants to fight over loungers and umbrellas on vacation. This time we booked a private beach dinner which was absolutely amazing. So romantic and the food was delicious. The experience was very special and we would definitely recommend it. Only thing I was not too thrilled about is that the hotel changed to brown beach towels. Why? To hide stains? Couldn’t quite shake the thought but ultimately not a make it or break it issue. We plan on returning again and have already booked for November of this year. Read less
