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.

The bed was very comfortable. I slept like a baby! I loved that they prepared an anniversary cake for us as we celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary

1. no clear visible contact list for hotel services 2. no instruction on do not disturb signs {we looked for the do not disturb sign only to find out the next morning that there is a button behind the door we had to press to indicate we didnt want to be disturbed} 3. no soap dish in bathroom- after using the soap one would expect a soap dish- small but practical detail. 4. booking in was confusing as we went to 3 different counters being sent from one to the other to book into our room.

I liked the city view from the my window. The swimming pool and jacuzzi was excellent. Room temperature was excellent. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

The room size was too much small. The standard room was too small. There was no extra space in the room. The Junior suit room was little better. The price of drinks was too high. There was no proper refrigator in the room. Only a mini bar was there and that was not soo good to cold things.

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.

All the staff are very friendly, especially Laxmi. Rooms are big and clean, spectacular views, good wi-fi. Location is perfect. It is the best hotel I have ever been to.

High prices in restaurants and bars in the hotel. It was cheaper in the near hotels and we went there instead of going to out own hotel. Expensive iftar.

Helpful staff, excepting night receptionist, who does not really know what is happening around. Union metro station is close, several fast food chains also can be found near.

Keeping my passport at the reception because they are afraid of leaving without payment... Awful smell in the corridors, even in the room. Old furnitures, overused bathroom.

The hotel is working with some private taxi drivers who usually charge much more than city taxis. As I am a frequent traveller to Dubai, I knew this and avoid using these taxis. But there was no assistance or explanation from hotel staff to other visitors in this regard. I didn't like this. Besides, there were always some noise either from other guests or cleaners in the floor I was staying that was not good.

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...

- 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.

We live in Al Ain and go to Le Royal Meridien when we want to spend a weekend in Dubai. My kids love the Kids Bar and using their penguin tokens to buy popcorn, drinks, etc. That was why they wanted to return to le Royal Meridien. We have stayed in a club room in the past which was nice but needed 2 rooms for the 4 of us. this time we booked a suite that could accommodate all of us and it was lovely. Really spacious and comfortable, 2 TVs, plenty of space. Facilities are great - gym is wonderful! The beach is a long walk from the main building and when it's hot, you need to wear flip flops as the sand is burning. Lovely breakfast buffet - lots of variety and good service. Welcome drinks and cool towels on arrival. VERY prompt service from guest services. Brilliant!

The sea water is really hot so I'd recommend using the swimming pools in the hot weather, but beach is lovely in Winter. Ask for a sea view if in a suite as the view from the non-sea view suites if very average!

Close for golf / peaceful haven away from the bustle of downtown/ nice spa facilities/ good choice where to eat on site/room was great and bathroom also was well designed/staff more than helpful/ hotel cars can take you to different places which was great and only marginally more expensive than the regular taxis in dubai (which are very cheap anyway) pool area was good / rooms were made up promptly each day/ I arrived at 7am and had breakfast by which time my room was ready at 9am which was fantastic after long flight /

Maybe hotel a little tired in parts (not so much decor but wood work etc showing signs wear )/a little remote from shopping main 2 malls and other tourist attractions / prices for wine was really costly and meals also fairly expensive - as this hotel is a bit removed from other resorts its nice to eat on site as the property is a restful place so makes sense to eat there but prices would possibly prevent me dining there more than one night

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.

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!
