The resort is outside the city. The staff is the most lovely. They are enjoying the customers relationship from the bottom of their hearts. I've never experienced such a welcome. They are doing everything they can to help you. Special mention to Sam at the reception, Gabriel the doorman and Nipuni from the restaurant .

I would rate the Beach Hotel a 6 out of 10. The hotel has an older layout with narrow corridors and low ceilings, giving it a somewhat outdated feel even after the latest renovation. However, the resort surrounding the hotel is stunning, with lush greenery that offers a refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of Dubai. For a more modern experience, I suggest booking a stay in the Palm View or Lake View rooms within the JA Beach Resort. The adult pool at JA Lake is a peaceful alternative to the other pools, which tend to be crowded with children. When it comes to dining options, I highly recommend the White Orchid restaurant for its amazing food quality, despite being a bit pricey. For a more budget-friendly meal, the sports bar is a great choice. However, I found the other restaurants on the property to be expensive with subpar food quality. Read less
