The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai

Dubai Beach, Dubai Beaches and beyond

The hotel

A gem of a hotel, the spectacular Ritz-Carlton, Dubai has a wealth of amenities. Guests can enjoy a total of six swimming pools, including two exclusively for children (happily set in the shade!) and one exclusively for adults. There’s a choice of rooms and suites, including Club rooms with access to the Club Lounge with benefits such as free flow of alcohol from 12:00pm-10:00pm and five food presentations. Its Italian restaurant Splendido is something of a local legend, and there is also a contemporary Asian restaurant Blue Jade and a sophisticated lounge offering unique flavour combinations from around Asia! All of this, plus Amaseena, their magical tented Bedouin village, set right beside the sea and serving traditional regional specialities, to be enjoyed whilst listening to the haunting background strains of the oud and the tabla. As all first-class hotels in Dubai do, this hotel overlooks its own stretch of private beach, pristine white sands lapped gently by azure waters. A wonderful place to relax, topping up your tan perhaps, indulging in a variety of water sports or simply reading that book you’ve been wanting to for ages now! There are plenty of shaded areas too, private nooks to call your own, and unbeatable service from the La Baie Lounge. All of this, plus an indulgent spa, exciting kids club and a great location, ensures a holiday you’ll remember forever!

RITZ CARTON IN DUBAI JUMERIAH BEACH : Well ... except the glorious name, this hotel is nothing more than any other middle class 5 ⭐️ Hotel !!! DESCRIPTION : SERVICE : Poor or Average. RESTAURANTS : Some are nice but ... the food is nothing special and the Organization and the Service quite poor. ROOMS : Quite Old and unfortunately without an appropriate maintenance. POSITION : Very Good (if you like the nightlife OUTSIDE the Hotel and the Juneriah Area). FACILITIES : Normal ... nothing more than there should be in a 5⭐️! BREAKFAST : Forget about it 😅 ... 2 Persons for serving 15 people ... well ... if you have time to stay in line... than it is just a normal average Breakfast (nothing exciting and nothing more than a 3⭐️ Hotel !). TERRITORY : Nice, spread out but ... not enough maintenance. BEACH : Good, let us say Acceptable ... but not for a 5⭐️. RECEPTION : Basic... KINDNESS OF WORKERS : Quite Cold and with a false smile (except few persons like the Manager of the Restaurant “SPLENDIDO” or Virginia, the italian Manager at the reception). CLEANLINESS : Regular, nothing more than that. KIDS CLUB : Well ... not bad ... but ... to go inside you have to dress up like an Astronaut ... to “protect” kids from “COVID19” ... NON SENSE ! AMENITIES IN THE ROOM : Basic. SWIMMING POOLS : Nice ... a little bit old but still nice and finally the water is warm like it should be in this period of the year ! FINAL SCORE : 7 (where 0 is very bad and 10 is perfect). I do NOT recommend this Hotel. I suggest the WALDORF ASTORIA Dubai The Palm, or WALDORF ASTORIA in Ras al Khaimah. Read less
