My family and I stayed at the One & One Royal Mirage for two nights and it was perfect. The restaurants were great, the rooms were luxurious and the hospitality was excellent. Ricardo and his staff, and every employee of the hotel were polite, kind and unbelievably helpful. We definitely look forward to coming back.

We stayed in the Residences as other parts of the property were closed. The plus points first..... Ivan, Luca and the staff at The Dining Room restaurant were top class. The food was amazing, and we were told at breakfast that if we wanted something which was not on the menu, they would do their best to prepare it for us. They spent just the right amount of time getting to know us and were so attentive. This was the highlight of my stay. Keeping in mind everyone is wearing masks on the property, the staff went out of their way with hand signals etc. to say hello and greet us whenever we saw them. Despite the COVID concerns, the property felt very safe. Although there is a lot of construction work going on around the hotel (although most has stopped) which does somewhat spoil the view, the serenity of the property is not be be underestimated, especially given it's central location in Dubai. The room was a lovely size and plenty of storage. The bathroom is stunning with a beautiful rain shower and large bath. Moving around the property is seamless, you call for a cart and one is downstairs within minutes. The gym is lovely and the manger in charge there was so helpful to us on both days we were there. A really nice guy with a great smile. My highlight staff member of the weekend was the boy beside the pool who kept the toilets cleaned (on the Friday) after each user and this was a particularly busy job on Friday afternoon. He did it throughout the day with a smile that could be seen on this face, despite wearing a mask. The not so goods...... We witnessed a domestic violence incident by the pool. This was brewing for well over an hour before it escalated from verbal to physical, during which time they continued to be served alcohol. Suddenly the man followed the lady to the opposite side of the pool, grabbed her by the throat, put his foot behind her and pushed her to the ground. Plenty of management and security had gathered by this stage but no one did anything. They proceeded to go back to their sunbeds and return to the verbal abuse before eventually leaving of their own accord. Again, no one intervened but observed from a distance. The Manager then told us that they had asked them to leave the property and Police were waiting at the gate - this gave us some comfort knowing the lady would then be safe. However when I raised this issue on checkout, the assistant told us that the couple were really embarrassed and apologetic at checkout the following morning. Unbelievable given the assurance the Manager gave us that she would be safe once they met the Police. I followed this up with the Manger via email after leaving the property and his response was that they decided it was best to let them stay at the property and they kept an eye on the situation!! He also elaborated that this was a difficult situation to deal with as they were intoxicated!!! So they'd have stopped the domestic abuse had the couple been sober?!!! It has honestly enraged me that he washed his hands so easily at their management of this situation. The pool itself was dirty on the afternoon we arrived but we put this down a technical issue and expected it to be sorted. Again it was dirty the next morning so we raised it with Alex and we suggested there was a filter problem. He said he'd have the team look at it and they did. But did it really need us to advise them of a cleanliness issue with the pool especially since it had been ongoing for 24 hours at least. We came away from the property stating that despite what we witnessed with the domestic incident that we would go back but based on the Manager's follow up email to us, I'm not so sure we would. You failed to manage this situation, put your hands up, own the problem and commit to dealing with it going forward. That's all that was required, not a hand washing response. Read less

We made reservations for our party of four bases upon a recommendation by our hotel. Took cab to the Royal Mirage Hotel on the beach and ate at their EAU (water) Zone. Very exclusive with beautiful grounds and water features. Had a bottle of red wine split four ways before dinner. Another bottle of wine with dinner. I had Crispy Vegetable Spring Rolls with carrot, cabbage, sweet potato, mushrooms, celery, sweet chili sauce. I also had Pan-Seared Crab Cake with shrimp, celeriac puree, red tobiko and wasabi mayonnaise. My spouse had the Seared Salmon Fillet with zucchini, carrot, mashed potato and honey butter sauce. Our friends had the Ginger Lotus Sea Bass, a leaf wrapped seabass, Asian herb and Vietnamese Ginger dressing and Satay Chicken with veggies. Excellent meal preparation and service. Read less

We arrived in the very early hours of the morning and were met at reception and our luggage dealt with by staff. We were taken to a the Club lounge and supplied with cold drinks. We were sat down and our half board package explained to us, we were told that the manager would be with us shortly. He arrived promptly and took us to our room. We had initially booked a Club King room. We were surprised to learn that we had been upgraded to a suite. The manager had personally written a card congratulating us on our marriage and wishing us every happiness on our Honeymoon. The grounds of the resort were beautifully landscaped and you really feel as though you are in paradise. Our suite was immaculately decorated, the attention to detail is truly 5*. The resort occupies a section of beach, which was well manicured and patrolled by staff, the sea was like a bath. We have every intention of returning. We highly recommend this hotel if you want guaranteed luxury with kind attentive staff, this is the place to stay. Thank you so much for making our honeymoon extra special. Apologies for the late review. Read less

We had stayed a number of years ago in the hotel as well as the Residence. The hotel still looks like newly built. There is a big secret in the hotel, namely the superb staff who went way beyond to assist each and every guest. The rooms are spotless and well looked after by housekeeping staff. Gold club is again still as good as ever. We were checked in by amazing 😉 team very quickly and our room was ready quickly. The breakfast in Celebrities was amazing with freshly sourced food and great choice. Our thanks to ALL staff including Rahul Sharma who always has time to make his guests feel like friends. We will be back hopefully soon. Read less
