The hotel

For travellers who aren’t satisfied with a simple ‘one pool, one bar, one restaurant’ kind of holiday, this island escape overflows with choice. Its private white sand beach accompanies seven fabulous swimming pools, including a pirate-themed aqua zone for children to cool off on sun-soaked Marjan Island. It has 12 places to drink and dine, from family-style Italian Vespa to the gastropub food and fun of The Anchor, and the Arabic snacks and shisha of ShoFee Rooftop Bar. And, while the beachfront setting, eforea spa, and contemporary styling of Doubletree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island attract couples and groups of friends, families get the bonus of the kids’ club’s climbing wall, Arcade Zone, and huge playground with its climbing structures, trampolines and shaded toddler area.

We arranged to stay 6 nights in early June to celebrate my 60th birthday. We were a party of 6, myself, my wife, 3 daughters and son in law, so 3 rooms in total. We normally stay at the Grand Hyatt but wanted to try an all inclusive hotel instead. The collection from Dubai airport was in a very old mini van with non functioning AC, and we were all cramped inside this small mini van after a 7 hour overnight flight from London, and the drive to the hotel was over 1 hour. On check in I asked for some credit to be allocated for us to use to charge items to our rooms. The lady took 1,500 Dirhams for the credit from my credit card. Some 3 days later, I tried to charge 60 Dirhams for some cookies from the lobby bar, only to be told I had no credit. This was in front of other guests which was really bad service, and made me feel really uncomfortable. I went to the reception and was informed that the lady that checked me in had made a mistake and not credited my room. The hotel spoiled my birthday, in that my daughters arranged for balloons and a cake in my room on the day of my birthday. They asked for the arrangements to be placed into my room for 3.30pm. When we got back to our rooms (after swimming etc) at about 4pm, the balloons were there but no cake. The cake finally arrived at 5.30pm when everyone had gone back to their rooms. I had terrible stomach issues and had bad diarrhea for 4 days, I suspect it was food from the restaurant, even though I am a vegetarian. In fact one day my wife took some potato curry and when she smelt it, it had clearly gone off as it was smelling really bad. On reporting the same, we did not get any proper feedback. On complaining on lack of good vegetarian Indian options we were offered 2 separate vegetarian dishes and one chicken curry. We wanted to eat in the Asian and Turkish restaurants on our last 2 days at the hotel only to be told that both were shut due to planned maintenance, of which we were never informed. The hotel has a lot of faults that need to be addressed or people will not book to stay with them. I certainly will not come back to this hotel in the near future. Whilst writing this review, I must provide positive feedback to all the golf cart drivers they were all really great and always provided a great service, as did the staff in the main buffet restaurant.

Amazing hotel Crystal clear beach front location Cleanliness absolutely spot on Rooms perfect either side you have sea views Staff are incredible not a single complaint in any area Animation guys were fantastic and work extremely hard as they’re down to 3 it seems to entertain but Sonic & the 2 girls work they’re socks off and the hotel should be very proud to have lovely staff members , never been approached to do a review about them either which is very refreshing even though regular daily chats , bravo guys 👏 Restaurants are amazing and the staff really do everything they can possibly do to make you welcome Only did the buffet at breakfast and it was lovely The brasserie was our favourite great surroundings great menu and the staff were exceptional especially Swashtika , what a little gem she is and the lovely chef Vishnu Went out of there way to make sure we had great food and an enjoyable evening Yes you aren’t in Dubai but still only 50 minutes away in a cheap taxi hence not paying Dubai prices We upgraded on arrival to ultra and we certainly had our moneys worth I cannot recommend this place enough This is my second visit 1st in January Weather very hot but we absolutely loved it and rebooking for October Read less
