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 7.7 /10

    The hotel is located on Jumeirah beach, 15 mi from the city centre and 18 mi from the airport. Allow 30 minutes for the transfer to the city and the airport.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The Westin has 294 large rooms, most of which enjoy sea views. In spite of the soft, relaxing colours of the decor, the style is very impersonal. The rooms have a floor area of 581 sq ft and 70% of them have a balcony. A generous range of services is available in all the rooms. In the comfortable standard rooms, a little corridor leads to the bedroom, which is mainly decorated in cream and contains twin beds or a king-sized bed. There are many facilities, including individual air-conditioning, a fan, a minibar with tea and coffee-making facilities, a Nespresso coffee machine, a DVD player, Internet, a widescreen plasma television, a free safe and a direct international telephone line. The bathrooms look a bit outdated in their yellow, cream and brown marble decor, but they are nice and spacious and comfortable enough with their large bathtub, tropical shower, large mirror and magnifying mirror, hair-dryer, bathrobes, slippers and full range of Westin hospitality products. The toilet is separate. Room-service and a butler service are available 24-hours a day.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    Open in 2008, the Westin is a U-shaped complex that looks out over the Jumeirah palm in the distance. The entrance has a rather low ceiling, with white marble and black stripes and offices to either side. The enormous lobby opens into an imposing hall that leads to the hotel's 9 cream-coloured floors, topped by a large dome. There are bay windows everywhere. The comfortable split-level 'Senyar' bar hosts a live band during the week and a DJ on the weekend. The gym has a fine view over the sea and many of the latest fitness machines, however, the gym at the Méridien is even better equipped. The immaculate, spotless and softly-lit spa here has 11 treatment rooms and the business centre is open until midnight. There is a children's club for 4 to 12 year olds, who can also splash about in the beautiful swimming pool reserved for them (which is slightly covered to avoid sunburn).The large main swimming pool lies on a gentle slope, whilst the meandering lagoon pool becomes an artificial river in places that can be crossed via a series of little wooden bridges. In terms of equipment, there are plenty of wooden parasols and cushioned raffia deck chairs. In the centre of the resort, there is a second rectangular pool of 82 ft, with palm trees on either side, and gardens criss-crossed with footpaths stretching out in front of it. In total, 14 life guards monitor the pools and the beach.

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    There are 4 restaurants in total. The huge, main restaurant, 'Blue Orange' is open 24-hours a day. The buffets are served up from 6:00 am to 11:00 am, 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm and 6:30 pm to 11:00 pm, and an a la carte menu is available at all other times of the day. The chefs can be seen behind the various buffet counters, preparing food for diners who can either eat inside or outside. There is plenty of choice, including Asian and Indian dishes and six themed evenings are organised each week: Italian, American, Mexican, etc. The Steakhouse is also an attractive option. 'Bussola' is a pleasant and stylish Italian restaurant in the swimming pool area, serving fish and seafood dishes for lunch and dinner. There is also a pizza and a salad area in a very peaceful space on the roof, under the shade of three veils. Most of the bars are outdoors, although two are indoors, and one offers a fine cheese and wine selection.

    Beach 8.95 /10

    The Méridien and the Westin have a large and very beautiful beach which is a massive three-quarters of a mile long! The beach is monitored, just like the swimming pools, and its sand slopes gently down into clear turquoise water that is so inviting you will want to jump in straight away. The shallow slope extends quite far out and so it is perfect for children, but adults will consequently need to go a fair way out in order to swim. The beach equipment could be better though; guests currently have to make do with lying back in peace and quiet on plastic deck chairs, in the shade of straw huts, fabric parasols and palm trees. The services provided in the hotel extend to the beach, but there is also plenty of room to find a secluded spot if you so wish, and if you feel like being active, there is almost too much to choose from, starting with beach volleyball. Big game fishing, banana boat rides, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, waterskiing, etc., are all provided for an additional charge.

    To know

    The Westin hotel enjoys a good location on Jumeirah beach, next to the Méridien Mina Seyahi and the new marina. Guests staying at the hotel can use the facilities of the neighbouring Méridien Mina Seyahi hotel as well as the Westin's own facilities, because the two hotels form a resort together. Access to each is just a short walk across the gardens and over the beach. Both the Westin and the Méridien Mina Seyahi are great places for younger guests, as they both have a children's club and the latter also has a club for adolescents. Sporty adults can make use of the large and spotless gym with its many modern machines housed in one of the Méridien Mina Seyahi's buildings, as well as another impressive room where they can train in a number of sports, including boxing (see the schedule of gym activities). Tennis and swimming lessons are also available in the resort. A shuttle makes 6 return trips a day to the mall of the Emirates.

      • 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.

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...

      • 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.

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.
