Went to Dubai for a 4 day break. Hotel was fine, rooms large & comfortable and service good as you'd expect. Two things let it down. First the parking - unless you take the £20 valet option the parking arrangements are garbage - staff are unwilling/unable to explain the complimentary parking is miles away and the courtesy bus drops you near tower entrances - so expect a 10 minute walk back to the hotel properm budget on 30 mins to park and get back to your room!
Don't ask for a cocktail, the barkeeper seems to have no knowledge or training and produced lousy drinks so stick to Johnny Black, Restaurtants were OK but not what's expected from a 5 star hotel. Particularly disappointing was the mediocre food at Ronda Locatelli. The food served wasn't even the food on the menu Lasaga al ragu - with bechamel (not ragu) insalata mista - heavily overdressed but underseasoned. We also ate Gordon Ramsey restaurant in the creek Hilton - MUCH better food.
Would we go back - possibly, but next trip we're booked into Jumera beach.More
