Jumeirah Properties are truly worth every penny, and Dar Al Masyaf was exceptional. We stayed there for 5 days, and their services were top-notch. A big shout-out to Mr. Rafe for taking care of us throughout our entire stay. He guided us to great locations and we were not sure where to eat Thai food then he recommended the Pa Thai restaurant for authentic Thai food, which turned out to be an amazing choice. The food quality was excellent, and the atmosphere was soothing. The housekeeping services were beyond imagination, with a highly professional staff. Everything was great, except for the presence of mosquitoes, but overall, it was a perfect stay. Read less

We spent 10 nights in May in villa number 9. We have been going to the hotel twice a year for the last 12 years, so we have experienced a lot. We are returning as loyal guests because the style of the hotel and especially the service suits us. No other hotel in Dubai has ever suited us so well. We've seen a few changes over the years. The hotel is always trying to improve and raise the standard. Positive: + beautiful wide sandy and clean private beach in Jumeirah area Villa close to the sea Excellent restaurants at the Jumeirah High quality of cleaning and cleanliness Professional staff Perfect check in and checkout and butler service from Saepul. Neutral/Negative - The hotel has changed the number of butlers and not every villa has a butler - The quality of drinks has decreased and the selection has diminished at happy hours We ate frequently at the Arboretum restaurant. We consider it the best managed buffet restaurant in the resort. We are so glad we could be served by Chika who is excellent every year. He's getting a lot of success with the boys Julius and Zakaria. Breakfast has a very wide selection. 4 chefs are at the "egg corners" and everything works perfectly. The best omelettes are made by Irshar Even though it was after the floods and the humidity was still uncomfortable in the reception area, the villa room was always clean and fragrant, thanks to Abhi. We tried many foods and drinks on the beach. Service was always timely and fast and the food was excellent. Ababukar is an excellent waiter. On the beach everyone has their own sunbed and towels and thanks to Jasim and Celestin everything works. I would also like to emphasize how clean the beach restaurants and backwaters are and how well Aftab does this job. In conclusion, we would definitely recommend the hotel. Occasionally a guest has to call in needing something and is entitled to it, but whatever I have dealt with the hotel and butler has always been quickly and excellently resolved. Read less
