I have just returned from a week stay in the hotel and i must admit I was concerned before my trip after reading some of the previous reviews.
My trip was fantastic, I stayed in diplomatic suite which had great views of the Dubai fountains. The room was of exceptional quality all round.
The service in the hotel just could not have been better, the staff was amazing.
One reviewer said getting a sunbed would be a problem, I was there during the Easter week and can assure you I had no problems in getting a sunbed and also found it a great extra that you could also get a Cabana at no extra cost.
The location is perfect, I have previously stayed at Jumeriah beach hotels and being in the old town where you can walk to shops and restaurants suited me much more than the beach area.
My only complaint was the price of UK phone calls from the room. I thought they had made a mistake when a 7 minute call cost me £50.
So my advise is stay in the hotel but do not use the phone!!!
