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.

Let me be honest with you ….. only the kids are enjoying their time … but We are not at all. Everything is not clean. We entered the room and obviously it was not cleaned or sanitized….. the door for the beach was opened and it was clear that someone was using the room before us ….. Even the cups and cutlery ….

We asked for new one and the new ones are dirty ….. I don’t know if I will give the hotel another chance in other season rather than EID ….. but for sure there is no any standards of cleanliness and that I am sure of it is that the team of cleaning are not ready for this number of guests ….. and I am sorry to tell you that I will share my experience with friends and family here in UAE so they will not face same experience here.

They did everything to make you feel that we had make mistake by booking here. Checkin took more than 20 mins, yes I'd to upgrade my stay but still 20 mins??? They were running out of welcome 🍪 and there was no effort made to make it available, a simple "sorry cookies are finished". We (2 adults and 2 kids) reach our room, room was spacious but… Read more
They did everything to make you feel that we had make mistake by booking here. Checkin took more than 20 mins, yes I'd to upgrade my stay but still 20 mins??? They were running out of welcome 🍪 and there was no effort made to make it available, a simple "sorry cookies are finished". We (2 adults and 2 kids) reach our room, room was spacious but you could sense this was not a 5* hotel room. And my suspicion was true, bed headrest was dirty, very dirty. Had only two mugs both were different shapes and sizes (this tells they are not bothered about their brand image). Hairdryer can not be used in bathroom as dryer has 3 pins and bathroom has socket only for two. We had to use it in a very unconvenient place outside the bathroom. You have to ask everything I mean everything. Ask for tea coffee sachets and they will provide only 2 pieces, fine, but where is the stirrers? Since there is no cutlery in the room, how would you mix your drink? Tried to use the fancy system to intimate housekeeping to make room, no response, twice. Had to call them in traditional way to get their attention. Room was cleaned, a new towel was placed in bathroom. 'A towel'. Upon calling Jhanvi said she is arranging. 15mins passed... called again..."sorry sir, we are sending". 5 mins later a gentleman appears with some toiletries(i had to ask for that as well) but no towels..."sorry sir towels are not available" seriously?? Hygiene seemed big issue in the restaurant area. Table mats were being reused, even upon asking they did not change the mats and just cleaned them, we removed them and placed our plates directly on the table. Good things - pools were good, access to beach, water park, kids club made our stay tolerable. Read less
