Beware if booking online
Reviewed 19 hours ago

This is a great hotel - I have stayed there before but this is just a warning about the way the website booking process works. It is the same for all of the Jumeriah hotels so I will add the same review on each to warn people.

Having decided to re-visit I went to the website and found details of their Half Board option. It is called Jumeriah Flavours and if you google "Jumeriah half board" it will tell you they have complimentary half board. See attached image.

Having found this online I then searched the hotels they have before deciding to book. I found the Jumeriah Offers (within their various offers) and clicked on BOOK OFFERS.

From here I was asked to select dates and a code PSGO0 is linked to the top of the page. Naturally you would think that the code bears some suggestion that you have come from an Offer page and you are now booking that offer. However you go through the process and then it came up with the options of booking 'with cancellation rates, or without.

AT NO STAGE does it mention in the process that you are no longer selecting HALF BOARD. At the end of the booking process I was surprised I had nothing confirming Half Board in my confirmation email, so I emailed the hotel to confirm that was what I booked, so that I didn't have issues on arrival.

The hotel wrote back and said that it wasn't half board and there was another option which was 'hidden' which would have been more expensive. I was in fact room only.

They were not particularly helpful on their emails, and offered no apology. Since I booked, the website now has a bed and breakfast option added and also another 'view more rates' option that allows you to find the Jumeriah Flavours. This does make it a little clearer as seeing a Bed and Breakfast option on the same page at a higher price does make you realise that the offer couldn't be half board. But this was not there as you will see from the screen shot. I believe it has just been added due to this issue.

The problem I had is that from the Jumeriah Offers web page when you click BOOK OFFER it at no point tells you that you are in fact no longer booking that offer.

I have since cancelled as the cost is more than double and only add this review on here (and all of the Jumeriah hotels) as a warning to others.

Wonderful experience

Amazing surroundings and fantastic staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Superb luxury and over 45 choices of restaurants in a unique complex . Directly onto private beach adjacent to the Burj Al Arab.

Outstanding hotel with options for everyone
Reviewed 1 day ago

There is so much to this hotel and the group of hotels on the Jumeriah Beach that there is something for everyone. The restaurants are amazing, the gyms and tennis courts are great, the waterways are a great way to travel around the resort and you have the pools and beach to choose from. It literally has everything and you won’t be disappointed at all.

Overall a good resort hotel with private beach for first timer to Dubai
Reviewed 2 days ago

I visit Dubai frequently and this is the first time I had chosen, with friends, to stay at the Jumeriah hotels branch. This hotel is part of the Jumeriah Al Qasr hotel, and located in the extended independent ‘Villas’ or ‘summerhouses’ overlooking the man made lagoon. If this is your first time in Dubai, this hotel is connected to the other 2 resorts, Jumeriah Mina A’Salam and Juemriah Al Nassem, with private beach and a multiple choices of restaurants, the very good one are Shimmers on the beach front serving Greek food, Flamingo Rooms and Japanese Katsuya in Al Nassem. And the hotel is less than AED 11 (10 mins taxi ride) to the nearest Mall of Emirates. The hotel always have taxis standing by, but I am not sure if there is any shuttle bus available to Malls or tourist destination.

If you are looking for a resort type of hotel in Dubai, then this is a good choice for couples or family travellers. The 3 hotels combine are huge and you have to get around using golf buggy if you don’t wish to walk. This can be seen as minus as you have to factor in waiting time for the buggy service. They usually come within 5-10 mins on order. But we did wait on 2 occasions 15 mins for the buggy. The combined facilities of hotel has plenty to choose from. And if you stay at the Villa (Dar al Masyaf), you can have breakfast at your balcony with accompany singing birds (trying to eat with you!). The decor of this hotel is arabesque, and each summer house has a lovely courtyard, similar to the Moroccan style house setting and happy hour on offer every day at sunset. Overall guests are almost guaranteed a very comfortable and pleasure stay at this hotel. All the staffs are friendly and helpful.

In terms of value for money, I booked through booking.com and it worked out approx £430 per night excluding breakfast which is on the high end and comparable to other 5 stars hotels. Upon arrival, I was told through booking.com, I received AED 800 credits and could be used at the hotel which was pleasant surprise. And there was a ‘butler’ service which was basically the reception service, as there was not always a receptionist by the desk in the summer house. Overall I think for this price bracket, I would expect the butler service to be more personalised, like in St Regis hotel. I was told to call the Spa myself to book appointments, my room telephone did not work and I reported it twice to the butler and still not fixed. One morning a letter came through for buggy unavailable during 3-4 hours on one morning but we found out it was not true. Every time I entered the room there were mosquitoes or insects found, and I had to clean my bed headboard from previous guest stay with a squashed mosquitoes stain remained on the headboard. I think for this room rate, they need pay more attention to detail at this level of 5 star resort.

If you like the arabesque style, or first time to the Middle East, I think it is a good choice to be introduced to the taste and culture, and the beach access is a plus for those who want sunshine. However I prefer the contemporary style and maybe next time I will book Jumeriah Al Nassem for that.
