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 overflows with choice. Its private white sand beach accompanies seven fabulous swimming pools, including a pirate-themed aqua zone for children to cool off on sun-soaked Marjan Island. It has 12 places to drink and dine, 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.

This hotel does not last for the 5th check-in, there are not enough umbrellas on the beach to take a seat - you need to get up at 7 am, and then when you come to the beach, the umbrella may already be at other sun loungers!

Stayed here for two nights and regreted it the first day already. Forget about covid restrictions or security, sure nothing in line with Municipality requirements. The cleaningness of the hotel is literally non existence. Ensure to bring wet wipes to remove the dirt from the previous days meals on the tables, the seating cushions are absolutely disgusting and have surely never been cleaned since placed on the chair. Staff is completely overworked and untrained and rude to some extent. One person in charge of a station during breakfast and 10ppl waiting to get served, she ended up grabbing our Muffin with her Hands (with gloves but still...) and literally throwing it on our plate, left us speechless. One of many ming boggling experiences over the three days. There is no management no leadership, it's a hit and run concept. Don't bother! So many pleasant options are out there. Read less

Worst hotel we went, we arrived late and still room was not ready. We’ve waited for almost 2 hours and totally lost the time to enjoy. Total stay was not worth it considering we chose this hotel to celebrate a special occasin.
