The Movenpick Jumeirah Beach Hotel is the perfect all-rounder if you're going to be spending a holiday in Dubai. Situated in the up and coming Jumeirah Beach area, it is in a prime location right across the street from the main beach. A five star hotel with excellent standards and a good general holiday atmosphere, it is a great place to choose whether in a group of friends, as a family or as a couple. However, compared to other hotels in the city, the hotel lacks a stronger luxury aspect to be a five star, which is why it has been awarded four stars by our reviewing journalist, The highlight of the hotel is its wonderful pool deck, which overlooks the sea.

    Location 6.5 /10

    The hotel is located in the Jumeirah Beach area just across the street from the sea and 10 minutes' walk from the main boardwalk, where you will find a range of cafés and restaurants (most of which are chains that you will recognise). The airport is about 30 minutes' drive away (traffic-depending) and the main city centre, where you'll find the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Mall, is about 20 minutes away by car. The area is generally safe, even in the evenings, despite being a little way away from the town centre.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    With 294 rooms, the hotel is fairly large, so if you're looking for intimate boutique experience, it is probably not the best place to come. Although the room décor is pretty standard, with nothing really jumping out, they are comfortable and all have sea views, which is a great plus if you're after a bit of that holiday atmosphere! The smallest room is the Superior, at 35m², with the largest being the Royal Suite at 140m². In between the two there is the Executive Suite at 70m². All rooms have the expected mod-cons, such as an in-room safe (free to use), a bath tub, wireless internet connection (at a extra charge), complimentary tea and coffee making facilities, a mini-bar and a balcony. The entire hotel is non-smoking, so smokers will be relieved at being able to use the balcony instead of having to go to the main hotel entrance. The hotel has lots of connecting rooms, so do enquire about this at the time of booking. The Executive rooms consist of a separate sitting room and a more spacious bathroom. Guests staying here also have complimentary access to the business lounge, where food and refreshments are served throughout the day, as it is the case at most hotels in Dubai. Wi-Fi in this room category is also complimentary. The suites can accommodate three people, but the extra bed comes at an extra charge. The general décor is pleasant and fresh, with touches of deeps blues and turquoises that are in keeping with the rest of the hotel.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The hotel is a 23-storey pinkish tower, like most buildings that line Jumeirah Beach. Like most hotels in Dubai, the oversized lobby recalls a shopping centre atmosphere due to its high ceilings and clean lines. However, the touches of blues and greens and the cosy sofas help to soften the otherwise sterile decor. The unobtrusive scent of incense wafts through the lobby, reminding guests that they are in an Arab country, as the hotel itself is similar to the chain's other properties. The Jumeirah hotel is one of the trendiest places to hang out as it always has an event on around the pool, be it a Peroni party or a fashion show, there is always something going on here.

    There is nothing flashy about this hotel, but it high a good range of high-standard facilities, like the clean and well-equipped hotel gym and spa as well as the hotel's four food and beverage outlets. If you are likely to want a spa treatment, do book plenty of time in advance as the spa tends to get very busy, especially during school holidays. The gym has a steam and sauna, both of which are free for guests to use.

    The elevators, although there are three in total for guest-use, can be slow travelling up and down the hotel's 23 floors, so you may be left waiting a while before reaching your destination within the hotel.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The hotel has four outlets altogether. The Layali Shisha pool bar is where it's at for partying, and there's always something going on here in the evenings! The bar here serves snacks and mezzes and closes at 1:00am every day. The Talk Restaurant and Lounge is the main hotel restaurant, serving an impressive buffet spread at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The advantage here is that the food if of a very high standard. The food is freshly prepared - among lots of different styles of cuisine, you'll find a sushi bar, freshly-baked pizza, a live pasta station and a rotisserie. Gusts also have the option of choosing something from an à la carte menu for something a little bit more special, and for private dinners, there is a separate dining room (seats 12 people), which must be booked well in advance. Guests can also be served food at the poolside cabanas (seat 8 people). Something we appreciated a lot was the hotel sports bar actually! Unlike most sports bars, which can be uncomfortable and cold, the Movenpick has made sure that everyone feels comfortable here despite the impressive number of screens all over the place. The couches are cosy and food and drinks are served throughout the day until 1:00am. For something even more casual, there is the lobby lounge against a backdrop of palm trees. The Falls, as the lounge is called, is open around the clock and serves organic juices, teas and coffees as well as a range of cakes and pastries.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    Although there is nothing exotic about Dubai beaches due to the lack of coves and vegetation, it does the job on those sweltering summer days. Dubai beach life unravels along this long stretch of sand lined by towers of hotels. The beach is on the whole quite clean and there are a number of cafés and restaurants that line the beach along the Jumeirah beach walk. The area is generally safe, even at night. Drinking alcohol in open public spaces is however not permitted; you run a high risk of a hefty fine or even jail if you choose to break this law.

        Hotel très chic, acceuil à l'écoute, personnel sympathique. La chambre deluxe avec vue sur le golf persique est très bien entretenue.

      • Location 1.0

      Granted the status of 'Preferred hotels and resorts', this hotel, with its quirky vertical and horizontal layout, is made up of the old and the new making it a rather conspicuous building. The plethora of services and facilities, as well as the beach, are greatly appreciated, but the flashy and kitsch nature of the place quickly becomes irritating. Located in the new marina district, the Habtoor Grand Resort and Spa is particularly ideal for families.

      Grosvenor House is an establishment primarily designed for businessmen, but it won't fail to impress guests who are used to a certain level of luxury. Its interior is extremely trendy, as is its evening entertainment, and the food here is excellent. The hotel occupies a high-rise building, the rooms of which are decorated in soft tones (making them all the more restful) and you will very soon realise that this hotel, which mixes elegance and modernity, pays special attention to the slightest detail!

      Radisson Dubai Marina, not to be confused with Radisson Blu in the Creek area and Radisson Blu Media City, is the most low-key of the three properties. Tucked away in the Dubai Marina area, it is easy to miss as you drive towards the Media City area. Like the other two hotels, it is stylish but is a little more discreet. It comprises of studios which are ideal for groups of friends, families and couples alike wishing to be independent of hotel activities and restaurant opening times. Situated in a quiet area of the city, it is a good base to explore the city from as it is halfway between the sought-after Jumeira beach area and the bustling districts of Dubai. This establishment is of very good quality and value especially for a three star property. It scores high with us and is without a doubt one of our preferred hotel-residences.

      Despite the Sofitel's bland image, it is one of our favourite hotels in the city due to its all-round good-value and location. A French brand, the company has ensured that no matter where you are, there are French touches in the service and in the facilities, which distinguishes it from the rest. One thing's for sure is that if you like your baguettes, this is the place to stay! Ideally located in the up and coming trendy JBR (Jumeirah Beach Resort) district, the hotel sits just across the street from the beach and a couple minutes' walk from the main outdoor boardwalk of cafés and restaurants. The food is so good at the Sofitel that you probably won't want to leave the hotel anyway! Perfect for a range of clientele from business to groups, families and couples, the Sofitel remains in our top ten for quality.

      The Marriott Dubai Harbour is an example of the chain's first step into the 21st Century! Nothing like its sister hotels, the JW Marriott and the Renaissance, it is simple, contemporary, and comfortable; making the Marriott Harbour an all-round good choice. The hotel only has suites which is great for those not wanting to spend too much on wining and dining as all suites have their own fully-equipped kitchen. Groups of friends or families will find the harbour perfect for their stay as there are fun restaurants, AZ.U.R and The Observatory, as well as accommodation which lends itself very well to group stays. The slick Penthouse suite is especially fitting for large groups - or lone travellers needing a bit of space! The area, the Dubai Harbour, is fairly new and resembles an island planted with skyscrapers overlooking a lake and the sea as well Palm Island. We very-much enjoyed our stay here as the food is good, the staff is friendly, and the views are magnificent.

      The Address Dubai Marina, not to be confused with the other Address hotels in Dubai, is located halfway between the city centre, Bur Dubai, and the up and coming 'JBR' (Jumeirah Beach Resort) area, which is handy if you are going to be zooming between the two during your stay. True to The Address style, this hotel has beautiful interiors, comfortable rooms and good service, however, it lacks atmosphere due to its shopping centre aspect. The breakfast here is one of the highlights, as is the beautiful freeform roof-top pool, which is one of the largest in the city. The hotel is ideal for a range of guests, from groups of friends to families and couples.

      A good family hotel! Comprehensive and classic facilities come together in this tower - admittedly a long way from the airport. The main thing to bear in mind about the Ramada Plaza is its large range of services thanks to its guest room-apartments. What's more, the hotel is located in a residential area with all the amenities you will need and close to one of the few public beaches in the Emirates.

      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.

      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...

      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.

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!
