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.

Very bad breakfast for a five star property, and not very helpful staff. Very slow room service for anything requested, clearly understaffed. Only good thing was rooms were sanitised, checkin process very painful.

• The hotel was badly maintained, I came to spend me honeymoon and I called in advance to prepare the room for the check in just to surprise my wife , unfortunately nothing was set when we arrive although I called and informed them and they confirmed over the phone it will be ready. • the breakfast and dinner are very very bad and not tasty at all and all the glass and silverware smells very bad, we had to change it two times just to get something not smelly , at the end we took paper cups. • the room service and house keeping is disaster, we had to beg them to come and change the bed sheets and for two times they just changed the bed cover and left the sheets with stains on it for two days. • the room has some damage of humidity in the ceiling and we woke up with white things falling down the ceiling on our cloth and phones over the table, they fix it when we informed them but the next day same thing happened again. • I called to talk with the duty manager but he didn’t pick up and the staff informed me that he is having dinner and will call me back after an hour but never called back. • this experience was supposed to be pleasant for us as it is our first time together and unfortunately DoubleTree Hilton hotel and team destroyed it totally. • No respect for the clients and no follow up whatsoever. • I will never visit again or even advice anyone to come here as the experience is as bad as it can get.

MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE!!! I visited the resort this week. I initially contacted the resort reservation team and I had the pleasure of being assisted by Nasser. He demonstrated an exceptionally outstanding level of professionalism. Needless to mention his naturally genuine kindness and friendliness. Thank you Nasser. Upon check in, I also had the pleasure of being assisted by Smarika from the front office team. The purpose of my visit was to celebrate my wedding anniversary (late celebration due to work commitments), so I did not disclose that upon reservation. While checking in, I informed Smarika that we are celebrating our wedding anniversary in a normal with her. Other than her very kind welcoming and and authentic hospitality, after check-in, we have been surprised by a beautiful plate to our room with a slice of cake and "Happy Anniversary" beautifully written with cream on the plate. I believe Smarika arranged it. Besides, to make sure we best enjoy our stay, Smarika allocated our stay in room with a mesmerizing sea view. Thank you very much Smarika for going the extra mile and for your good hospitality. Room cleanness was well looked after, many parking spaces are available in front of the main entrance as well as in the front of the rooms building blocks. If your room is far from the main reception, you can be dropped at your room byilding by a club car available at the vicinity of the main reception building. There are a lot of water games and activities you can enjoy, in addition to a few shops (souvenir, water games and swimming accessories, etc). If you are fan of shisha, you'll find what you're looking for at the lounge. There is also a variety of restaurants with differents cuisines (Italian, Lebanese, and Chinese if I still remember correctly). I definitely and highly recommend the visit. Thank you all for your hospitality and for making our stay memorable and uniquely enjoyable 💕 Read less
