The service was amazing, staff were friendly and helpful. Loved the breakfast buffet, and the room/hotel was very clean. Great views all around, and convenient location next to the Dubai mall, metro, and the Burj. Will definitely stay here again.

The pool is beautiful. Its an infinity pool surrounded by the lush modern buildings with the burj khalifa in the background its a cant miss experience. The breakfast was very good and has many options including cooking stations with great options. Did not like that the spa seemed to be an offsite company running the show and many times seem to be out of sync with the hotel and must bargain to obtain discount benefits. The TV in the room was all but useless as only local channels are available and no option to cast your devices or use streaming services on the tv.

I was expecting VIP ACCESS like I purchased but didn’t get that. When I booked for Mexico, the moment I got to the hotel I received the highest quality of VIP access. The hotel was still nice, with a nice view and got what I paid for when it came to the room. But the price could’ve been lower honestly, but would suggest this hotel to others.
