... too. As you go around the river you get to the entrance of the slides. Even though they looked scary I decided to try them. Goldie went first. The good thing for me was that I didn't really know what I was in for until I was going down the first big drop. The water is so powerful that it pushes you uphill in some parts, kinda like a rollercoaster! It was pretty scary. Next we tried the other slide on the same level. I was dreading it, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Jebel Ali Golf Resort Dubai
the room was dirty the mattress protector had urine stains on it.the reception staff were very rude paticulary the manageress.taxis are expensive to go into town.I have stayed in dubai many times and would not recommend this hotel.the emmirate towers was perfect
Situated in the Jebel Ali Free Zone approx 40 mins from the centre of town, this hotel is away from all the hustle and bustle of dubai. My wife and I spent 7 nights in August at the Palm Tree court (a newer extension to the hotel) which was set in a beatuiful garden with views of the sea. The rooms are spacious, well furnished and come with a balcony. The bathroom was of a very high standard with seperate tub and walk in shower. My wife enjoyed the range of complementary Molton Brown Toilatries!
I was in Dubai last September 2004 for two weeks. I had been there in 2001 and stayed in a smaller hotel, can't even remember the name of it now. But I have no major complaints about the hotel, everything was perfect. The staff were only too obliging to help you with any queries. The housekeeper was on hand for anything we needed, extremely friendly and courteous. Our room was overlooking the golf course which was perfect. The only downside was the distance from the city centre, but with a free shuttle bus on hand we availed of it a few times. I would recommend the Jebel Ali for a relaxing holiday, if that's what you're looking for. The pools were spotlessly clean, the beach amazing and as for the water, like getting into a warm bath. I will go back, but not this year. There is alot of construction work going on in Dubai, but when it's finished it will most definitely be the place to be seen.
5 star price but not 5 star quality
We stayed at this hotel in Januray 2005 and were disappointed with the level of service for a 5 star hotel. The food was mediocre at best and you had to book at least two days in advance to get a table at any of the restaurants in the hotel. As a result we spent most of our time getting taxis into the centre of town, which takes at least half an hour depending on how bad the traffic is and believe me it can be very bad in Dubai. If you are considering this hotel go for the palm tree court rooms as they are much bigger than those in the main hotel. Also be prepared for construction noise from the many developments going on around the resort and a view of the construction from the beach.
I am a single female traveller and stayed at the Jebel Ali from the 16-23 December. Really nice hotel with friendly staff. Rooms in main hotel small but so clean - the service in all area's is above average with all staff being more than helpful.
Full relax at top level
I was upgraded to a suite, so space was not a problem. Almost perfect in every aspect, though the resort is rather isolated and not very convenient for visiting the city of Dubai.
Never the less, this place is OK if you wish to enjoy full relax in luxury and do nothing else than play golf. Also, it is convenient to organize company working meetings: your employees would not have an easy way to go anywhere else in the nearby!
Small rooms compared to other dubai hotels
Having been to Dubai a couple of times now and knowing the amount of construction being undertaken we chose the Jebal Ali for its location (30 minutes from Dubai).
Yes, it is a lovely resort and everything is available but the rooms in the main hotel are very small compared to other hotels in Dubai. This is because the Jebel Ali was one of the first build. Don't expect a room of the size of the Jamurah Beach or Le Meridien. If you do stay, go for one of the larger palm court suites (and pay the price).
Also, don't bother go half board. Not worth it. You are restricted to where you can eat. If you eat in some of the restaurants your half board status is ignored and you have to pay the full amout for the meal.
I have spent a week in Dubai for the past 4 years
