Dubai Marine Beach Resort and Spa
Travel Blogs from Dubai
Ive just left Dubai here in the U.A.E. and find that there is much more to do than meets the eye. Prices are medium, we get 3.67 durhams to 1 US dollar and this made taxi trips somewhat easier. We went to just about every mall there, including the largest Citi Center and Wafi City. We also visited the Gold Souk and the Electronics Souk where we …
Enjoyed the rest of our meal - BBQ meats, salads and bread in plentiful quantities - sitting outside in the desert. We watched a spinning man dance - how he just spun around with all sorts of intricate moves for 5-6 minutes. How he did it without getting dizzy fascinated us. Then we had a belly dancer - some of the moves she made also could be classed as fascinating.
A tiring but enjoyable day.
... its tyres and off we go up and down the dunes. Fantastic fun. We stop in time to climb a dune for a sunset photo. The scenery in breathtaking. Back in the car and we head to another 10 minutes to our desert refreshment stop!
They have set up a classic tent complete with carpet and cushions on the ground and we take refreshments. We meet the Sheik's personal falcon handler. He is Dutch and has responsibility for all the Shieks falcons which are housed in massive ...
... mall, you can also find a more modern version of a gold souk. It's much more quieter than the real gold souk, but the merchandise is still incredible. The only thing I can think to compare the size and extravagance of the jewels to are the Crown Jewels in England. Other than that, I've never seen anything like it. Even though I was technically still in the mall, the shop keepers were vocal in their attempts to get me to go into their stores. Thankfully, I was able to resist the ...
... calls come from – majorly account based.
After these tours we had an amazing Indian lunch – too much great food – so we rolled back to our hotel. In the evening, we went to Dubai Mall and had dinner at a nice Italian restaurant with great views on the fountain. Dubai Mall is the second largest shopping mall in the world. There about 1,200 shops ranging from international chains to high end designer shops; there are huge food courts as well ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dubai Marine Beach Resort and Spa
Having read the reviews of this hotel, I felt compelled to write this review, despite the fact that I am not someone who would normally be overly praising or critical of something. I have to say that reading the reviews on here made me very hesitant before travelling and left me wondering just what type of hotel I would find! But having just returned from a week at the Dubai Marine Beach Resort & Spa with my wife (we are in our mid 20's), we could not recommend it highly enough.
Lovely place to stay, fantastic atmosphere
After reading the reviews, I was shocked and felt that I had booked the wrong hotel....it got to a point where I thought that I should cancel this hotel, but then I couldn't turn back the clock.....
I visited dubai for 7 nights and stayed in the hotel for 6 nights, bed and breakfast included....breakfast was lovely, buffet, and a large variety....
I have to say it was a lovely hotel, that I would definitely recommend for the price......hotel staff were excellent, very helpful, service was AMAZING....I have no regrets what so ever in staying at this hotel. there is plenty to do, and a good nightlife....
I have just returned from a short break in Dubai. I had booked 3 night stay at the Dubai Marine Beach Resort and Spa but when I arrived they had no record of my booking but as they had a room I was given that for the first night. Next day I had to move hotels which I was glad about. The standard of room for a 5 star hotel was very basic to say the least. No tea/Coffee, only watchable TV channel was VH1 and the room was very small. The rest of the Hotel looked ok but spent the rest of my stay in a lovely room at the Sheraton. I wouldn't book this hotel again.
What a great place!!
After reading the reviews on here - what a mistake we thought we had made....!!
How wrong could we be!
The numerous restaurants and bars offered excellent service and choice. restaurants ranged from cuban to mexican, international, french and even japanese!
Hotel set amongst waterfalls and lush gardens, the privte beach and pool area was great with attendants who couldnt do enough to help.
We would therefore highly recommend this hotel to all ages!
Went here on 4th September 2004 for a week. Was AMAZIng- had it all.
Dissapointing not what we expected
family of 4 stayed last 2 weeks july 04 breakfast dissapointing ,rooms 4 star , reception area dissapointing, no water sports as we were lead to believe, hotel needs complete updating, very good service , good location overall we did not come to dubai to stay in a hotel like this, would go back to dubai but not stay in this hotel
This hotel will provide you with two single beds in most rooms pushed together to make a double room. It will provide staff who get angry if a complaint is made about the star rating of the hotel and you will also be accompanied by mice in the taverna restaurant.
The hotel itself is in a slightly bad location. We wanted to be on Jumeirah Beach, and the travel agent (Driveline) told us that we were near the City / a long way away from any building works along the Jumeirah Beach which we thought would be an ideal compromise.
All of our family of 10 stayed here for 3 weeks to celebrate the Golden Wedding of my parents. The hotel was ideally situated - virtually the first hotel on the very long Jumeirah Beach Road, and therefore a very short taxi ride to the various Souks!
Supposed to be the oldest hotel on the strip.
Excellent rooms, on the beach. Food - variety and quality excellent.
We would deffinately stay there again
