Verified reviews from real guests

How does it work?

It starts with a booking

The only way to leave a review is to first make a booking. That's how we know our reviews come from real guests who have stayed at the property.

Followed by a trip

When guests stay at the property, they check out how quiet the room is, how friendly the staff is, and more.

And finally, a review

After their trip, guests tell us about their stay. We check for naughty words and verify the authenticity of all guest reviews before adding them to our site.

It was our second stay at the hotel. We enjoyed it a lot from the moment we arrived until the moment we left . Very nice staff, friendly and helpful. Fast and easy check-in and out. Food is excellent. Very close to the festival city mall, about 5 minutes walk from the hotel lobby. The area surrounding the hotel is a good place for jogging with lots of indoor and outdoor restaurants, cafes, kids activities and small selling shops overlooking the creek and Burj Khalifa.

Excellent location, right at the beach and a stone throw away from the Marina. Fantastic facilities: beach loungers, numerous pools and a great gym. Nice restaurants as well. Got an upgrade to a huge suite! Love to stay there..

A bit pricy but so are most nice hotels in dubai. It would be nice if Meridien would offer single occupancy rates.

Stayed there a few times and always had a great time, pool and beach facilities are very good,BUT beware this is a very expensive hotel and your end bill can be huge.Add 20% on to the Booking.com price for starters for local taxes.They also take 1000 dirham a day for 'expenses ' so have plenty of credit on your card if you are staying for a week or 2 with a family, there are much better value hotels in dubai for families. Booking.com should state the full cost,(+ 20% taxes ) don't try and make the cost look cheaper that what it actually is, be upfront with people from the start please.

Resturants are very expensive, in fact over the top for what you get. Beers at the pool are approx 10 euro, normally costs about 3-4 euro. Breakfast is 110 euro for 3 people, again a rip off. Normal evening meal for 3 at the Dow and Anchor approx 180 euro. Again beware of the end bill at this hotel, it will be an expensive one.

Rude staff and very inflexible not listening to customers. No ambience or charm, more a business hotel with WC and shower. For vacation or romantic scenery chose other hotel. Location is also very poor far away from the marina, the malls and the palm.

The hotel is beautiful, with great scenery.

I rented a room with a "development view" and when the confirmation came back it said there might be some noise that would interfere with the comfort of my stay. We were woken at 630 am on a Saturday by the loudest construction you've ever heard. Staff were completed unsympathetic, saying we'd already got a discount. They should NOT be renting out those rooms, directly facing the construction and you should not be helping them. It was so disappointing and still really, really expensive!

Absolutely outstanding and luxurious atmosphere, very helpful and creative stuff, fantastic architecture. We loved the romantic boat trips on the water canals among the lovely lit buildings. Wide and well-equipped beach, warm and clear sea. Special thanks to Ms Viktoria for the gulf villa, which compensated us for temporarily closed Wild Wadi Waterpark.

Nothing major but the facilities of the SPA were a bit poor (very small Finnish sauna, the steam room insufficiently hot) comparing with the whole resort. We also lacked the information about the closed Wild Wadi Waterpark during the booking process on booking.com (we got this info only after receiving the booking confirmation from the hotel..)

Fabulous!!! Great pool-area. Direct access to the great beach from the pool area. Fantastic club-lounge with top service, and excellent small dishes throughout the day. This is a great service for a solo business traveller. Large, very nice room. Very friendly and professional staff providing a relaxed and warm experience.

Internet in the room could be included in the rate. Now it is 100 AED/day which is an annoying irritant….

- Proximity to the Dubai mall, the fountain, and the cafe's around it. - Furniture, specially the lobby. - The landscaping around the pool and the hotel cafe. - Ms. Amii from the business center and Mr. Bajuhn from the luggage service were of great help and support with genuine smiles and friendly attitudes.

I would call this the "Greedy" hotel, specially when compared to any other hotel in Dubai, I decided to stay in it despite the premium difference they charge to indulge myself and my family, but unfortunately that indulgence never showed up!: - They charged me an extra daily charge for my 7 years old daughter (the only hotel that did this ever). - We have to do a round 2 cleaning after the housekeeping. - The amenities/refills are poor (below a 4 stars hotel I would say). We usually don't really use the tooth brush, hair comb, sewing kit etc, but they are nice to see a round, shows that the hotel is taking care of the little details. We learned that they won't provide them unless you ask for them, which we really didn't appreciate. Yes you have to ask for a new packed soap because they won't put a new one as long as the tiny one you opened few days back didn't vanish. - Generic attitude is way far from every other 5 stars hotel we visited in Dubai. Smiles (whenever they flash) are the fake type. This is my very first negative feedback about the hotel, I really hope that their management spend sometime reading feedback (beside planing on how to cut cost) and improve on the tiny things that really matter, unless they will rely only on the advantage of being close to the Dubai mall.

Nothing, this was truly an awful experience

Everything. The kitchen didn't include anything, no cups, glasses or plates. When I asked for some I had to draw pictures. The bathroom contained only one threadbare towel and the shower was in the corner with only an old rotten shower curtain to separate it from the rest of the room. The 90 decibel mosque across the street broadcasts prayers from huge loudspeakers so loudly that you can't hear the tv, which by the way, kep getting stuck on one channel. All this for 600 Aed per night!!! I'm in a much better place now, for less money. Don't stay here unless you enjoy complaining to people who either don't care or don't understand, because that's all you'll be doing.

Beautiful property, butler staff (only) was great, the food was exceptional.

My nightmare stay in the Burj Al Arab hotel started when after being asked at every turn did I stay in the hotel, security stopped me on the outer exterior of the property on the side of the Burj while leaving an open gated area and said "You can't go back there it's for guests only I became shocked that she didn't ask if I stayed at the hotel she then said she thought I had reservations for a restaurant there (As a guest of the property I was very offended) She should have simply ask did I stay at the hotel/ I then had a concierge (Oscar) ask me to check my ID (because I left me key in the room) he thumbed through every page in my passport and commented on places I've been instead of just checking the photo ID, afterwards he said he's not the person to give me another key.I am still trying to figure that one out ?/ and something I would never expect from any luxury hotel happened, I had bugs biting me upstairs in my suite I of course complained to management, she saw the bug bites and said if they give me a doctor I would have to pay to see one (the parametric came to the room and gave me bug bite medication) The manager then told me that she and her coleagues would meet me at check out (she was no where to be found when I checked out (She lied to me) I was told later by Vishal another manager she left early because of Ramadan scheduling and that she was aware of the scheduling before she told me she would see me at check out...
