We are nearing the end of our 9 night stay at Banyan Tree Dubai and it has been a fantastic holiday all round. We have stayed in some top five star hotels around the world and can safely say that Banyan Tree Dubai is up there in the top two. We booked when the hotel was known as Caesar’s palace before changing hands under Banyan Tree, however the service and hospitality has been second to none. We stayed in the blissful pool/ocean view room, which is of the utmost quality and comfort with amazing views including of the beautiful sunset. The room has every amenity you could wish for, with regular little gifts, cakes and services such as pillow selection to make your stay all the more enjoyable and comfortable. The room is incredibly modern and beautifully designed. The room is regularly cleaned and there is also a lovely turn down service. We had the half board dining option which has been very worthwhile and enjoyable. At the moment with renovations ongoing following the change of hands (which is hardly evident/distracting during your stay), we had the option to dine in one of two restaurants including Demon Duck by Alvin Leung, with 3 course meals included. The food is of first class quality and all presented beautifully. There’s lots of choice and the portions are very generous. The service and staff is what makes this place such a superb five star hotel. They go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable and hassle free. There’s an excellent number of staff at the hotel in all areas, always ready to assist, whether it’s with making a reservation, holding open a door, assisting with something else or just there for a friendly chat. We’d like to thank in particular African Michael and Vinay at the beach, Djay by the pool/beach and also Abhay in the Alizee restaurant for their superb service and caring nature. The hotel facilities are excellent with three pools for use including an adults only area for those looking to have some space from families and children. The hotel has its own private beach which is fantastic with non-obstructed views out to sea. Little gestures around the pool and beach such as unlimited ice cold water, complimentary ice cream/ice lollies/drinks every 90 minutes and the general helpfulness of staff make for a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. One of our main constructive criticisms would be that the prices for drinks in particular but also food around the pool/beach and with meals is extortionate. For example, a couple of soft drink cans will cost equivalent of £13 which is simply unacceptable. The wine in particular is extremely expensive, coming in at a minimum of £16-17 for a small 150ml glass, which is disproportionately expensive compared to other alcoholic options, costing the same or more as a cocktail. I feel that if the drinks and in particular alcohol and wine prices were more reasonable, many more people would order these - something that the management should seriously consider. Lastly, some of the cabanas around the pool and at the front of the beach are charged for, which is very expensive and I feel unnecessary for a high end five star hotel. We were very thankful and fortunate to have been gifted a couple of cabana beds at the pool and beach as complimentary, however they are most certainly not worth the price tag on them and I’d like the management to consider scrapping these fees. Also, it would be good to have some double beds around the pools for which aren’t adult only as these provide more space for families and with infants. Overall, this has been one of the best hotels we have stayed in, beautifully designed with first class service and staff, delicious food and fantastic facilities. We would certainly like to return and hope that management can consider our constructive feedback above. Read less

I have the pleasure of enjoying an unforgettable stay at the Banyan tree Dubai hotel and would like to share my experience. From the very beginning I was impressed by the warm atmosphere and the friendly welcome. But what really made my stay special was the exceptional service provided by Mr. Deepal, who worked on the beach and pampered us there. Mr. Deepal is a true expert in providing the highest level of comfort and service to his guests. On the beach, under his care, we felt like royalty. His attention to our needs was second to none. Whether it was providing towels and water or recommending refreshing drinks, Mr. Deepal was always on hand to ensure we enjoyed every moment of our beach vacation to the fullest. I was also impressed by the professionalism and warmth of the entire team at the hotel. It was clear that they are passionate about providing unforgettable experiences for their guests. I would also like to highlight the breakfast experience. I can hardly remember a hotel that has had such an excellent breakfast! The accommodation itself is immaculate and comfortable and the location of the hotel right on the beach was just perfect for a relaxing vacation. All in all, my stay at the hotel was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Special thanks to Mr. Deepal and the entire team for making our beach vacation an unforgettable experience Read less
