Le Meridien is worth visiting. Nice and spacious rooms, beautiful view from the balcony. Special thanks to chef and all the staff in the kitchen who prepared gluten free meals for our daughter. Plenty of sun beds on the beach as well as by pool.

My room was lovely with a large balcony and seaview. The food in Gonu and Sapore restaurants were very good and staff went out of their way to accommodate. Even got a late checkout for free. Can recommend this hotel!

Le Meridien Al Aqah is actually a Marriott Bonvoy property. The hotel has a great beach, flawless service and lovely rooms with a big bathroom. They offer many activities. There were many families with small children and it is a good place for families.

We booked an AI package through Virgin Holidays at relatively short notice. Having read many reviews here, we opted for the standard AI package. Please correct me if there are more than 2 different packages. At first glance, eating in Sapore ( Italian ) or Taste ( Thai / Indian ) off the al la carte menu appeared confusing. However it was easy to understand - there are small supplements in RED on the menu on some items when on AI. We stuck to the none supplement items and had a reasonable choice. We found Taste to be excellent. Sapore is also open for lunch and nice to be able to sit outside. Not sure of the value in upgrading to Dine Around as Gonu, the only restaurant not in the basic package, wasn't open every evening. Drinks selection was good and the wine very good. We had a leaflet at check in explaining the inclusions. In addition all soft drinks were included , even iced coffees. Evening drinks venues were limited to the Beach Bar and Astro's on the 20th floor - check the times for AI alcohol as I see on one website that it's very limited. We drank there until about 11 with no charge. The buffet restaurant I would describe as good - we have had much better selection elsewhere in the UAE. Rooms: please make them aware if you require a non smoking room. I was rather shocked to be allocated one and consequently refused it. The sun loungers were of good quality and plentiful. However, there were some people who constantly bagged favourite locations at the crack of dawn and didn't appear until much later plus those with both beach and pool locations. Tourist tax: we were told at check out that this is not levied in Fujairah. The hotel makes a good effort to provide some entertainment. Live music in the afternoon was very pleasant. Overall, we had a very nice stay. I would both recommend and revisit depending on price compared with another favourite location. Read less
