Lovely hotel in a great location
Posted Oct 16, 2016
Overall the hotel is well kept and has good facilities. The only thing that let it down was the rather small swimming pool and sun lounge area. However, as the main reason for going to Dubai was to explore the city and all its activities, this was not a big issue.
The location is excellent in terms of being on The Walk and right next to The Beach, plus within a very short walk of the marina. There are many excellent restaurants and shops to explore and try along The Walk, The Beach and the marina. Plus The Beach is a lovely location to spend the evening.
As the name suggests the hotel was very close to a Beach. This Beach was a public beach, and so sun loungers were not free.
The only negative side of this location was that it was a bit of a trek to other parts and attractions of Dubai such as downtown Dubai and old Dubai on the creek. So to explore Dubai meant a bit of travelling either via taxi or the tram/metro or the hop-on-hop off buses. This was not difficult but just a little timely, and meant often missing the last bus back as the hotel was right at the end of the bus route.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.
