Our family experienced a great time in the hotel. We stayed on the 22nd floor which was very high but far away enough from the sounds of the city.

Our family experienced a great time in the hotel. We stayed on the 22nd floor which was very high but far away enough from the sounds of the city. We have two coeliacs in the family and our dietary requirements were catered for very well. The lifts were a bit crammed at times but Pros: Very clean hotel and room Room attenders were very attentive Horizon Restaurant staff were excellent (shout out to Yamin who was great) who always looked out for us. Chefs on hand to flag non gluten food and cook special food for us. Food was great Clean swimming pool Close to beach Improvements: Our room was not ready when we arrived (the sofa bed had not been made) which was a bit annoying arriving at 2am after a 7 hour flight It would be good to add dietary information to the food in the Horizon restaurant Service time in the Italian restaurant was approx 1 hour Read less

The hotel is worth its money, we have no complaints at all. Even during dinner, my mother-in-law became ill; all the staff took very good care of my mother-in-law. Special thanks to Mr. Abbas Moubarak (Duty Manager), he behaved himself very professionally during this incident

Stayed in a sea view room mid September 2023 with my husband. First trip to Dubai and it was a great base! We walked to the marina and around JBR where there are lots of restaurants and bars one morning, grabbed a coffee.. all within walking distance. Walk out by the pool to get down to the beach 2 minute walk. We had no issue getting beds at the pool during the day and spent most of the day there due to it being over 40 degrees at that time of year. Staff were great around the pool. The reception staff did sneakily keep change that they owed me and I didnt realise until we left but it wasn't much so not the end of the world just left a bit of a bad taste as we left. Door staff will try and get you to take one of their taxis but it's cheaper to jump in one yourself or book an uber/careem. Breakfast was great! Massive choice of food and we only had to wait for a table for a few minutes. Sea view from the balcony was amazing and the room was clean, spacious, the white company toiletries.. couldnt have asked for more. Would I stay again? Yes. Read less

Lovely welcome in the early hours of the morning, family room with sea view on the 19th floor was beautiful; very clean and spacious with everything that you could need.

Lovely welcome in the early hours of the morning, family room with sea view on the 19th floor was beautiful; very clean and spacious with everything that you could need. The lifts as others mentioned are a slight issue..with only 3 for so many floors then you can be in for a wait. My daughter uses a wheelchair so the stairs weren’t an option for us but nobody seemed to be using them even for just one floor. We went half board and food was always delicious both in the Horizon buffet restaurant and also the others (the Japanese was our favourite and Rajnit was a real standout waitress). The pool was good fun and the lifeguards always helped to find a sun lounger which was a nice touch. Location of hotel was perfect and beach access was really handy. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in Dubai! Read less

This hotel is absolutely amazing! We are a family of 4 and our little boy who is 6 and has autism is absolutely loving his stay and so are we. Because he is very fuzzy with food all the chefs at the Horizon have kindly made special meals for him I.e chicken nuggets and plain noodles. Thank you so much!The serving staff at the Horizon have been brilliant catering for our every need. A special shot out to Troy who went out of his way to find me some chamomile tea for this tired mum. The people at the entrance and the valets are nicest people ever and they are always not only asking us if we need anything but also going out of their way to interact with out boy to the point that he wants to take photos of them. We have been so well looked after and this is just day 3! Super inclusive hotel. Highly recommended! Amazing staff with amazing hearts! Last shout out to Maureen at Flippers for looking after our boy. We were able to finally have 40 min quality time because he was so happy there without his parents there. Flippers is the kids club. Their gym is pretty cool too! Read less
