I booked this hotel on the internet based on it's reviews. I was not disappointed. We had a two bedroomed appartment, that was spacious and clean, with a large balcony. We had a four and five year old with us and they really enjoyed the hotel. The hotel was quiet, and the food was good and reasonably priced. The only negative was that the choice was not very varied, although we ate out a lot, so it was fin for us. Staff were very helpful and courteous. Taxis to the malls etc were inexpensive, it cost £12 to get to the hotel from the airport. We will go back to this hotel when we next go to Dubai.

We stayed here from 20th until 26th October.

Arrival
We booked the hotel'c car to pick us up from the airport for the really rather good price of 150DHs and the driver was friendly and awaiting us at the arrivals gate.
On arriving at the hotel itself, the staff were very friendly, professional and polite, check in was trouble free. (We arrived at approximately 8:00PM
On seeing our suite we were very happy, (1104 at front of building, on 11th floor).
There were 5 in our party, (including my mother-in-law)....
We booked a 3 bedroom suite and the size was superb, the three bedrooms were spacious, the TV channels on offer were good too.
The beds were particularly comfortable.
We were amazed to discover the "Maid's" bedroom (an additional bedroom just in case you are bringing your servant!), complete with bathroom. Despite my best efforts, I was unable to persuade my mother-in-law to sleep in this room... ;-)
The kitchen was well equipped and we were more than happy with our accommodation.

The Pool Area
Situated on the 1st floor, There is a small children's Pool, a bigger adult pool and a Jacuzzi. All were clean and the staff present were friendly and polite. Our kids loved the pool, and enjoyed the rather nice iced teas from the pool bar.

The Location
One word of advice, the Layia Oak is not the best known hotel among taxi drivers, so best you just tell them "Layia hotel in T-Comm area", this solved our problems.
A wonderful base for a holiday in Dubai. Not close to the Beach, although a taxi to Jumeirah Beach park is only around 34DHS (£6). A taxi to the Mall of Emirates is about 15DHS (£2.80).

Local shopping
There is a carrefour express shop, with a handy shortcut, come out of hotel, cross the road and turn to your right (if you have kept Layia entrance behind you). Then walk along the road a bit, then cut through the gravel road and you will see the Carrefour ahead of you. Its about a 5 minute walk.

Internet Access
Expensive, when we stayed at Kempinski last year we got free internet, but here it costs 35DHs for one hour (you must take it all at once), 100DHS for 24 hours and 450DHS for 7 days.
The good news? There is free wi-fi at the Malls.
This one thing is the only thing I thought the Layia could improve on.


Summary
A clean, well appointed and equipped hotel, not centrally located, (but with cheap taxis, this was not a problem for us). Excellent customer service but pricey internet.
Would we stay there again? Undoubtedly the answer is yes.
Would I recommend it to you? Yes, go for it.

booked this hotel because we wanted a 3 bedroom apartment.rooms were very spacious and the kitchen with fridge etc.. was a bonus so we stocked up on water and drinks at supermarket.
The pool is open from 7 am untill 10 pm which ment I could have an early swim with the pool to myself,it was also refreshing to have a late night swim,again with the pool to myself.Their is some construction going on nearby but it was not noisy or disruptive.this is a new area and we did struggle with some taxi drivers not knowing where the hotel was but we soon found out by saying the area TECOM they got us their.this is an ideal base to stay as long as you don't mind getting about by taxi - which are cheap.

Room Tip: we had a room overlooking pool which is in the shade early in the day

I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff were always pleasant, no matter what time of the day, always willing to lend a helping hand. The food was really good and the facilities were great. A really nice gym and sauna as well! Close proximity to the Mall of the Emirates and a metro.I would definitely revisit this hotel!

Room Tip: specify a non smoking room if you are not a smoker, as only 2 floors are non smoking.
