Food at IBN Majid is really good lots of varieties and enjoyed the desserts. The staff are really nice, especially Punith and Akshata were really good, served us well and were nice to talk to. Would definitely recommend and will definitely come back here in the future :)

We recently spent 13 nights at the JA Beach hotel, our 8th visit to the JA Resort. Overall it was another fantastic experience, the only issue being the overcrowding at weekends when they let locals in at a reduced rate. The pools and restaurants were so busy and noisy at weekends, that it was impossible to relax. I think the Hotel needs to do more to ensure that there are sufficient facilities available to guests who want to relax and dine in a peaceful environment at weekends. A second Adults only pool would be great. The other thing is don’t ever come during EID. We didn’t realise this was happening during our stay and will never come again during it, The Hotels were overrun by screaming kids for 4 days. It made the weekends seem quiet. As always it was the staff who made our stay so special. A special thank you to Rajitha, Sumith and the team in Ibn Majed, Ackhil and Manoj in Vasco de Gama, Vipin at La Fontana bar, Meenu in Republik, Elton at Vibes bar and Cynthia & Sulis at the Sports Café. We hope to be back next year. Read less

Even with “plus” many restaurants were not covered. You sign for everything and then have to argue with reception to take off things that were actually included. The hire of non motorised eq shipment is also chargeable The restrictions even extend to not being able to get a glass of water when you walk around the complex. 4th time of visiting the hotel and it will definitely be our last Read less

We had a wonderful stay at JA Beach Hotel. We originally booked our stay at JA Lake View but our Trip was suddenly cancelled 5 days before travelling by FTI. We were glad to find a perfect alternative at Ja Beach Hotel. We stayed 10 Nights in June (Off-season). The hotel was clean, calm, relaxing and everyone was kind and helpful. Especially Sonam was very obliging and gave us good recommandations for our Daytrips to Dubai Mall, Emirates Mall and Bhattuta Mall. The Free Shuttle Bus to the 3 Malls 3 times a Day were perfect for shopping and sightseeing. Getting a seat in the Bus was also no problem. We sometimes took the Metro at Dubai Mall or Emirates Mall to all the other destinations we wanted to see like the marina or playing topgolf. The Bus took 45 Minutes to an hour from the hotel to the last stop at Dubai Mall. The Bus drives first to Bhattuta Mall, than to Emirates Mall and after that to Dubai Mall. The Bus has aircon so it was a relaxing drive. The Free Shuttle Service between JA Lake View, JA Beach and JA Palm Tree and the Sportsclub every 10 Minutes were also perfect. We could visit the other hotels, used their pools and went there for lunch or dinner. It was like staying in 3 different hotels at the same time and every hotel was awesome. The Breakfast Buffet was nearly the same everyday but you always had a big choice of different dishes so it was no problem to find something to eat. The Omlette Station and Donutwall was a highlight. The Food at Captains Beach Bar was also very good, we especially loved the prawns! The Waiters are a bit slow and there were problems with our check two times were we had to wait nearly half an hour just to sign. At JA Resort you have to sign everything you order at the bar, pool bar or restaurants. That is a bit annoying but ok because you could give tip on the recipe and don’t need to bring extra money with you. Aqua Gym was very refreshing at 11 o’clock and a good workout after breakfast. You can play Squash, Billiard, table tennis and Badminiton for free at Jumana Club. The Fitness Studio had everything you needed for a good workout and was clean. You could play Golf at the 9-hole course or Tennis or paddle tennis. The Mini golf course was covered but old and the playground destroyed. It was still ok for kids to play a few holes next to Splash Waterpark but not for a competitive couple who likes to win against the partner ;). The Beach was clean, and we always got a parasol and sunlounger near the beach or the pool. There were fresh towels everyday. The Pools were nice with about 30 degrees. Ar first that sounds hot but next to the ambient temperature about 45 degrees the pool was really very refreshing. The Seats next to the Poolbars were under water and in the shadow. We got good drinks everyday (alcoholic an non-alcoholic) and played beach volleyball at 17 o‘clock. Every Dinner was themed with different Specials like Tacos, Shawarma, Pasta, Asian Wok or Buffet Extravagant on Friday and Saturday at JA Lake View with Sushi, Oysters and live Music. We booked our stay with Allinclusive not Ultra Allin and still had a lot of different drinks included. The alcoholic drinks were mixed with good alcohol and not the cheap one and the bar was open until midnight were you could ordner more drinks and snacks. The included drinks were marked with a star in the menue. The Pool and Poolbar closed at 19 o‘clock and that was totally fine for us so we could change for dinner which startet ar 18:30 o‘clock. We would definitely come back and recommand JA Resort to everyone. JA Beach is older than JA Lake View but next to the beach. A view tiles in the pool were cracked but it was repaired and definitely not dangerous. The Italian Restaurant at the Top of Ja Beach Hotel was stunning and the view over everything was amazing. We loved every Minute at JA Resort. Read less
