Its the little things.....Posted May 2, 2017
Having stayed in Dubai 5 previous times in different locations, Dubai Marina etc, I can say this hotel stands out in terms of service. (When you book 5 star accommodation the facilities are pretty much a given, its the service that makes the difference.) From the minute we arrived the staff were helpful and courteous and this did not change from day one regardless of where we where and what we where doing. House keeping and the pool side service were the two stand out area's. The staff take time to remember your preferences and i would very much recommend this hotel chain.

Wonderful stay!Posted Apr 20, 2017
Pros: The canal boat tour included for guests.
Cons: Check-in was slightly slow, there seems to be a lot going on in the lobby all the time.
Location: Location was key! Burj al Arab, waterpark, beach, restaurants all within walking distance.
My family stayed here for one night while in between travel. The hotel grounds and amenities were very nice, and we really liked the choice of restaurants available. The room itself was a bit pricey and you could likely get the same for less, but you pay for location. The beach, pool area, and backdrop of Burj al Arab all combine to make a unique and picturesque experience. We enjoyed our brief stay.

Beautiful Hotel, Staff are amazing!Posted Apr 17, 2017
5 night stay during Easter was amazing, the rooms were spacious beautiful decorated and super clean. House keeping were very friendly and couldn't do enough to make the stay more comforting. The beach had plenty of decks with fantastic view of the Burj. Abra boats to take you across to the souks and the other hotels and spa, lovely little tour Around. Overall great stay and would definitely recommend because of the service the team provide!

Relaxation and indulgencePosted Apr 13, 2017
Absolutely beautiful place to stay. We had access to Jumeirah beach where the staff were very attentive providing chilled water, smoothies and ice lollies through the heat of the day. All the facilities were high standard, the gym was excellent with a large range of equipment, an outdoor section and protein bar for after. Also included was free access to wild wadi. The restaurants and bars provided a difficult choice at every meal time there was so much variety, I'd highly recommend Meat co and Black Tap, all within walking distance or you can utilise the free golf buggies and Abras to reach your destination. The general layout of the Madinat is beautiful representing the true heritage of Arabia. Only down side was the in room TV remote does not work from the bed so you have to get up to change channels but apart from that it was a 5 star stay and I'd definitely revisit.

5 star experiencePosted Mar 17, 2017
Pros: Exceptional customer service, location close to the beach, shopping and restaurants close by and connected by the passenger boats.
Cons: Service at the Tortuga (Mexican) restaurant is not at the exceptionally high level as the rest of the hotel.
Location: Beach and shopping is near by, as is the Burj al Arab (iconic sail shaped building), easy to catch the hop on and off bus and tour the city.
We were so pleasantly surprised by our stay at the Mina a Salam and the staff, we will be returning the same time next year with friends and staying with them again. Entire staff goes above and beyond to make your stay exceptional, rooms are luxurious and have great linens, food at the hotel is very good, overall it was one of the best vacations we have ever had. The location is also what makes this location amazing, very close to a lot of things to do within the resort complex and the beach is just steps away and we had an amazing view of the Burj al Arab outside of our room.

Dubai beach resortPosted Mar 5, 2017
Nice resort but compared to some of the all inclusive resorts in the Maldives; other parts of the world more tropical, this place was way too expensive for what you receive in return. Everything is a la cart, reservations to the top 2 restaurants were almost impossible to make because of some outside restaurant week promotion that had nothing to do with resort guests, and the rooms were ok for the money. Hotel staff was great, Dubai as a whole was amazing, but save your money and stay in the city since that is where most of the tourism is. You can always go to the beach
