    Location 6.74 /10

    On Jumeirah beach, 15 miles from the city center and 18 miles from the airport. Allow around 30 minutes for the transfer to the city as well as to reach the airport.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The Méridien Mina Seyahi includes 211 rooms in total. 70% of them have sea view. Choose preferably these ones since they have balconies. The other rooms are situated on the backside: they look out on a flat desert-like area which has absolutely no charm. Well-planned without being very large, they are furnished in a simple, sober contemporary style. The balconies have wrought iron tables and chairs. The facilities, very complete, are comfortable: air-conditioning, minibar, satellite TV and direct telephone for international calls. The bathrooms are equipped with a bathtub, a hairdryer, bathrobes, slippers and a selection of toilet products.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    Built in 1999, the Méridien Mina Seyahi consists of a huge brown 10-storey building with blue glass balconies on the side that faces the sea. Its very bright lobby has a bay window with a gulf view at its end. The marble floor is decorated with mosaics. There are lounges next to the reception area: midnight blue velvet chairs and coffee tables with draughtboard motifs create an original decor. The pool seems to merge with the sea. An outdoor jacuzzi will enable you to relax in a setting that makes you feel you are surrounded with blue (pool, sea and sky). This is really very nice! As for suntanning, you can choose between the solarium (for ultra-violets devotees), the lawn (rather small for the numerous deckchairs) or the beach (the best option for those who like comfort). Concerning facilities, everything is provided in sufficient quantities, from sunshades to deckchairs, through towels and mattresses.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    The main restaurant serves 3 styles of cuisine - all served buffet-style. This is the ideal option when you like to taste everything: Arabic specialities rub elbows with pasta, salads, seafood or raw vegetables. Fish, meats with sauces and rice with spices offer a generous and tasty choice. The deserts, with fruits coulis, chocolate sauce and fresh fruits make your mouth water! To have dinner in an elegant and intimate environment, choose the à la carte restaurant with its voluntarily plain decor. It reminds one of a minimalist canteen in London or New York and the plates' presentation is as fancy as their taste. Those loving new cuisine will love it! Finally, for a lunch or a break in the afternoon, the pool-bar overlooking the beach offers a friendly and comfortable setting.

    Beach 8.70 /10

    Wide and very beautiful, the beach is around 1,600 feet long. With fine sand that is regularly cleaned, the beach slopes gently down to the splendid turquoise sea. You will only think of one thing: swimming at once! Perfect for children, the low difference in height will make adults go out a distance to have enough water to swim. Beach facilities could be more welcoming: you have to rest on plastic deckchairs, under straw huts shade. However, those who like to be alone will find enough space there. And those who like to do sports will have many choices. Customers can practice diving, game-fishing, banana, sailing, windsurf, kayak and water-skiing for an extra charge.

      • Value for money 6.84
      • Location 5.69

      The JW Marriott is ideal for fans of the traditional side of the Marriott hotel chain. Although the hotel does have some very good restaurants, the experience was unfortunately a disappointing one. The service was excellent but the décor of the hotel is uninspiring, dated and overall a bit drab, we are sorry to say. The distances from the rooms to the rest of the hotel can be large and it is easy to get lost. Some of the rooms have permanently locked balconies which give out onto an (indoor) atrium letting in very limited light and give sthe hotel as shopping mall feel. This is not a reflection on other Marriott hotels however, as the Renaissance just across the road is more contemporary and the newly-opened Dubai Marriott Harbour edition is a real step into the 21st Century.

      • Location 7.15

      Traders is a very well located hotel of manageable size which welcomes mainly a business clientele but is trying to adapt to a leisure base and is a great choice for holidaymakers staying in the city for a long weekend and who want to be at the heart of the action. However do keep in mind that driving in Dubai is essential and therefore it is difficult to walk anywhere in the city centre. Traders is Shangri-La's four-star ?value for money' label, which can be found in Asia and in the Emirates. We liked this hotel very much due to the exceptional service standards and the general no-fuss light and fresh atmosphere.

      The Crowne Plaza Deira, formerly The Renaissance (Marriott), is one of three hotels of the same chain in the city. It is a lively hotel with fairly good food outlets such as Spice Island, Sails, the Tiki Bar and Harry's. The rooms are on the small side and the decor is dated and dull. However the hotel does have one of the best roof-top pools in Dubai! The Crowne Plaza Deira is ideal for families due to the atmsophere, the pool and the food outlets. Not recommended for couples as it is not particularly luxurious or romantic.

      The Media Rotana, part of the Rotana chain, is one of the brand's largest hotels. Contemporary in its décor and functional in its design the hotel welcomes both a business and leisure clientele. A fairly good base to explore the city from as it is centrally located. Families are also welcome and there is a play area dedicated to young children which is rather rare in the city. The restaurants are varied, although Channels could do with a change of atmosphere. Prego however, is lively and the food is fairly tasty. A good quality hotel that just needs a spa to heighten its leisure experience.

      Part of the Leading Hotels of the World label, the prestigious H Hotel, formerly The Monarch, is unrivalled in every way and is easily one of the best, if not the best, hotel in the city. Exclusive, The H is quietly and self-satisfyingly elegant without being pretentious. Unlike the brash hotels where the quality doesn't always match expectations, The H is all about quality and sophistication, and although on the pricy side, is definitely worth saving that extra bit to stay here. Not only is the atmosphere relaxed, but the staff is friendly and efficient, and no expense has been spared to make the rooms beautiful, spacious, stylish and up to date technology-wise. Throw in a fantastic range of high quality restaurants and bars, and a good location, you have your perfect hotel! Ideal for all types of guests, whether for leisure or business, the luxurious high quality H Hotel is ideal for friend, families and couples alike. Walking into The H can be likened to the feeling of slipping into a hot steaming bath...

      With its superb white sand beach, the Westin Dubai is a spacious, brand new hotel complex with beautiful gardens and several swimming pools. Its style is somewhat impersonal, but it offers a good level of comfort and its many facilities make it a great place for families and sporty types to stay.

      • Location 7.62

      The Address Dubai Mall is one of five stylish luxury properties of the same chain and is found inside the actual mall. The hotel feels very much like part of the mall inside the lobby but, much in the same vein as the other The Address hotels, the rooms are comfortable, stylish and spacious. The Address is all about design; however the service leaves a lot to be desired. Another highlight of the hotel is its obviously very central location which makes it a great base to explore the city from! However, a room at The Address comes at a price, so not great for visitors on a budget. In terms of clientele, the hotel welcomes a wide range of guests, from all four corners of the globe, from families to couples to groups alike. To sum up, The Address Dubai Mall is an attractive hotel, although less so than its sister hotel The Address Burj Dubai, where service is close to zero and that is overpriced in that the food isn't up to scratch for the prices charged. Furthermore, there is little atmosphere.

      The lifestyle Armani Hotel Dubai is nothing short of stunning. With every angle and curve that has been carefully studied to give the desired effect, the hotel is without doubt one of the best in the city, which is a huge statement to make, especially in Dubai, where the standard of hotels is generally very high. Mr Armani has overseen every single detail of this hotel, from the scents used throughout the hotel, to the embossed chocolates sold in the deli on the ground floor. The result is astonishing. What separates the hotel from the rest is firstly, its location, right inside the Burj Khalifa, and second, the sense of space of the hotel. Slick, sophisticated and contemporary, the hotel is a veritable success. The only downfall is that you could be anywhere in the world as there is no reminder of the destination's culture and traditions. The hotel is best-suited to couples and friends looking for the crème de la crème in luxury.

      • Location 6.0

      The Burj Al Arab appears on the horizon, rises out of the fog along the coastline in Jumeirah, visible from skyscraper terraces all over the city, like a myth seen in books. A real gem in its architecture, seeing the legendary hotel, the only seven star hotel in the world, is like seeing the Taj Mahal in India. It is a real architectural feat that should not be dismissed for being too showy, too brash, too contemporary, but rather revered as a symbol of this city that is no less than over the top! The hotel sits quietly glimmering in the sun along a long and wide sandy beach. The interior takes a while to grow on you, but the services and facilities are irreproachable. It's definitely worth a stay at least for a night, or if it is too pricy for your budget then do drop by for tea, but book early.

      The all-new Intercontinental hotel opposite the Festival City marina has what it takes to turn rivals green with envy! Some parts of it are vast; others more intimate, but its multiple styles and modernity are plain for all to see. Don't miss out on all the restaurants and facilities here, indeed, every effort has been made to ensure the height of luxury and make yours a comfortable and pleasant stay. The fine design, bay windows, lighting effects and grand furniture combine to make this an ulra-stylish hotel that has successfully lured some of the world's best chefs to prepare its cuisine, including the Frenchman Pierre Gagnaire. The somewhat outstanding rooms also deserve a special mention.

      This is the second Atlantis hotel in the world. Is Atlantis The Palm, the flagship resort on Dubai's first Palm Island, a gem of a hotel or a monster of excess? Actually, it's both of them! It is perhaps the hotel that best represents Dubai, built as it is from scratch between the sea and the desert. A symbol of grandiose delusions, it is nothing less than a 'kingdom of superlatives'. Next to this immense and (in places) kitsch resort with its multitude of ultramodern facilities and restaurants staffed by award-winning chefs, hotel residents and day-trippers alike can enjoy a huge aquatic park. It is like a city within a city, making it ideal for families, but if you are looking for charm and intimacy, you're probably better off elsewhere!

Far from the madding crowds, this exclusive hotel is located on the dge of Dubai not too far from the airport but in an area that feels isolated away from the hustle and bustle of the city. A real haven of peace and quiet with a smart lodge atmopshere, this hotel is ideal to get away from it all. With sparkling facilities and spacious luxurious rooms, the Desert Palm specialises in equestrian activities and even has its own stables and polo club, including three hundred horses and four polo fields. Contemporary and arty, the hotel's interiors have been closely studied to give it the sharpest aesthetic aspect possible, whilst remaining extremely simple in using natural materials and fabrics throughout.
