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.

We have our third visit to the DT in January. We normally travel in April for a Spring Break but decided to to travel a little earlier this year. This hotel never disappoints, we had a fantastic room in the Bay Club in 2019 and we were allocated the same room this visit. Great warm welcome and we opted to upgrade to the BE Ex All- In Package. The staff as in my previous posts are fantastic and the service in the buffet (breakfast) and in the four Ala Carte restaurants all very attentive and provide superb service - Big Thank you to Glenda who provided fantastic service in the Brassiere I have recommended the hotel to many friends and colleagues who have all traveled to the DT and none have been disappointed. One of the best hotels i have been to for a great get away and relaxation Already planning our fourth visit for early 2020 Read less

Me and my husband was stayed in the room number 1818 just yesterday June 27th 2020, we stayed for one night as we want to travel to RAK, in the website the hotel and the room look so amazing and interesting but when we arrived to the hotel the situation was so crowded in the lobby like in the fish market, the staff not so welcome like in the other 5* hotel, but there is one lady name ms. Mahmoud, she was standing in the lobby and welcome us and assisting us to the reception, she was very helpful, very professional, and she’s outstanding service, perfect, thank you to ms. Mahmoud. Then when we process the check in with the reception lady from the Philippines i guess (forgot the name) she has very bad service as a customer service and as a person who we met first, she did not greet us anything, she did not ask what we need, she just inform us that the room is ready and when she gave us the key she did not even say anything, she look at us like we are a begger not a guest, very bad, very very bad, she should say something not to look at us like that. And then when we arrived to the room i was so surprising cause there is nothing, nothing inside the room like in the normally 5* equipment must be available and more surprising me is the wifi for the guest room is chargeable, sooo disappointing, the tv was not working, the landlines telp was not working, the bath room very bad, the room very simple and not recommended at all, the swimming pool was ok, the breakfast is very nice food, amazing service from soba and solange the waitress, auguste and suci thé hostesses, rizwan the chef and abdurahman the lifeguard, well done guys, when we met all of u we just felt that is the real 5* hotel, the rest is horrible. Disappointed. Read less
