Excellent staffPosted Oct 12, 2014
Pros: Food and staff were excellent
Cons: Executive food was limited and not that good.
Location: Excellent position to go to the shopping malls, hotel bars and nearby souk.
Brilliant hotel as long as you don't get a room next to the building site. Staff are excellent and having stayed in all the jumeriah hotels this is one of the best.

Love the location Amazing staff Clean warm beachPosted Sep 22, 2014
The duty manager (Yana) helped us a lot, she got us a room with a better ocean view, because we did not like the first one, and that was nice. The only thing that we did not like was the recent change in room furnishing into a moderinized one, one of the reasons why i chose mina al salam was the lovely vintage arabic style which i loved and been wanting to share with my wife, we were surprized to see the changes when we arrived, so we prefer the old style better.

Amazing Place To Stay - BUT...Posted Sep 16, 2014
Pros: Everything but the noise.
Cons: If you offer reduced rates for building noise, you need to apply it to all rooms that are impacted.
Location: Beach - amazing. Gold and Diamond market - civilised, air conditioned, no hard sells. Dubai Mall - not a place for deals, but a trip anyway
I can't fault this place but for one exception. They currently offer a lesser room rate for those choosing to stay on the side where there is a large construction site. We did not choose this and paid the full board to avoid the noise. They are also upgrading several rooms / areas within the resort which means they have a substantial amount of building noise during the day. This seems a little unfair to offer rooms at a reduced price due to construction noise, but then charge full rate and still suffer your guests through what could be classified as the same noise, just for a different purpose. FYI - we were on the 4th floor and the repairs were occurring on ground floor, but a jackhammer through concrete sounds like it's going on in the room beside you. So, if you are requiring an afternoon nap to get over some jet-lag or have small children, ask if these works are going on before booking. Also doesn't sit well with me that they still charged full rate after we complained...

Great get awayPosted Aug 12, 2014
We stayed for 3 nights on the way home from Europe and were lucky enough to get an upgarde to the El Qasa section of the hotel. The rooms and facilities were fantastic. You probably need 2 days to actually get around to see all of which the hotel has to offer. Pool and beach is also great. We will be back.
