DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island

Ras Al Khaimah, Dubai Beaches and beyond

The hotel

For travellers who aren’t satisfied with a simple ‘one pool, one bar, one restaurant’ kind of holiday, this island escape delivers copious choice. Its private white sand beach accompanies seven fabulous swimming pools, including a pirate themed aqua park for children, with buckets, slides and sprinklers for cooling off on sun-soaked Marjan Island. It has 12 places to dine and drink, from family-style Italian Vespa to the gastropub food and fun of The Anchor, and the Arabic snacks and shisha of ShoFee Rooftop Bar. And, while the beachfront setting, eforea spa, and contemporary styling of Doubletree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island attract couples and groups of friends, families get the bonus of the kids’ club’s climbing wall, Arcade Zone, and huge playground with its climbing structures, trampolines and shaded toddler area.

Visited this hotel for our 7th time in June/July. This time we were with our family, 9 of us in total. This hotel offers it’s own private beach, spacious and stylish accommodation, fantastic views of the Arabian Sea. There are 4 speciality restaurants included in the hotels 13 restaurants and bars and there is even a separate coffee house and a nightclub. Whilst I would recommend dining in any of the speciality restaurants, there is also a superb buffet style restaurant available where the quality and variety of food is amazing. I cannot thank the entire staff enough for their treatment of us throughout our holiday. Quite simply, to a person, they were superb. Not only did everyone take special care to ensure that we had a great time but they also went that extra mile to make us feel as if we were all family together. Their service was impeccable and their attentiveness outstanding. On a personal note, special thanks to Mahmoud, Pushpa, Shambhu, Anuj, Jamon and Anuntya. Many thanks to Venidick, Satya and Mukthar, the chefs who prepared for us any meal we asked for. Anyone looking to book a 5 star hotel in the UAE could do a lot worse than holidaying here. I thoroughly recommend it and am already counting down the days until I return in September. Read less

Got this as part of a package deal, and have found it amazing. Would definitely go back. I got this as part of an all inclusive deal - and I would recommend it as to offset the heat. The amazing service starts before arriving, as the hotel organise the transfers for you. The hotel itself has multiple restaurants with its own private pools and beaches. The rooms themselves are large and company, with their own safes, but you'll likely not be spending time there. It might be a bit of a competition to get a lounger, but there are loads of them. The weather is amazing, but it might get a bit hot if you're not used to it. The food is amazing on the all inclusive deal - whilst its limited to one restaurant I would not complain about it. There are other restaurants to try in the resorts. The resort does have its own nightclub, spa, gym and shops; however I didn't go out of my way to try these. Would definitely recommend. Read less

The hotel is set in an ideal location for a relaxing and revitalising holiday. It offers everything to escape from the reality of the normal daily life routine. The different restaurants and bars offered plenty of variety to make every meal different. I would like to single out David and Trishna who work extremely hard at the lobby and poolside bar. David has the memory of an IBM computer. He uses this talent to ensure that you are always looked after in terms of seating and drink preference. Trishna is extremely polite and helpful often suggesting alternative drinks to try. She constantly smiles and ensures that everyone is served promptly and efficiently. All staff are helpful but both David and Trishna contributed to my excellent experience. to the management. I was not on an all inclusive package and was paying as i went. Even although I was prepared to pay I could not have certain beers such as Kaiser as I was not on a package. Not a big issue but if a guest is prepared to pay I don't understand why this rule applies. However, this didn't detract from my thoroughly enjoyable time. Thanks to your fantastic team. Read less

Normally our group stay at different hotels just to try, but we agreed to go back to doubletree as we had a great time last stay. We were not disappointed at all. A lot of staff still the same and always keep their smiles. Food is very good across the board although my favourite was the Asian and Turkish restaurants. Service and food excellent! Always saw housekeeping all around the place keeping the place in shape as it’s nice and busy at all times with a great atmosphere for everyone. Enjoyed the music around the big pool and we had fun with the animation team. As we were a group we enjoyed the night club as well although it wasn’t busy. Feel sorry for some staff who had to deal with some very rude guests! Overall excellent stay and we will be back. Read less
