Super hotel with very small weaknesses
  • Recommended hotel

  • August 2014
Overall a very good hotel, which I would visit again and would recommend to anyone at any time. But of course not everything was totally perfect either. I'll list here what i didn't like. The rest, which I do not mention here, I found very good to just about perfect. What i didn't like: the breakfast service sometimes left something to be desired, here the staff was sometimes relatively slow and inattentive, I find the TV offering very poor here for a 5 star hotel. Also no trace of HD. I find the balcony badly made. On the one hand ... it's very small, and on the other hand it is far too badly secured. I personally wouldn't dare to go onto the balcony with several other people at the same time as I was afraid that somebody would fall when not paying attention. The railing is for this height (i was on the 17th floor) in my opinion much too low and too loosely secured. In combination with the small size of the balcony this made me feel queasy. • the pool is very nice, but for the size of the hotel it could be a little bit bigger, but the metro station is not really within walking distance. We always went there with the taxi. Taxi in Dubai is extremely convenient, though. read hotel review

Yet again a fantastic stay at Sofitel Dubai JBR

  • May 2014
Relaxing hotel in an excellent area within walking distance of the beach and an amazing selection of restaurants. Buffet Breakfast is recommended - the best I have ever experienced. The out standing features are the friendly staff and beautiful surroundings - great outdoor areas with a very boutique feel. The pool is not large but this was not a problem as the pool are does not get crowded. Shuttle busses to an array of shopping Malls and a very helpful concierge desk to assist with any bookings or information you may need. read hotel review

    Balcony available in all rooms which I love. Great tea/coffee making facilities and the complimentary bottled water is available in abundance (replenished twice daily) The beds are extremely comfortable. Great rainwater shower and huge bath which also opens into the bedroom. I love the Lanvin toiletries

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    Breakfast is fantastic - The best I have ever had (I have stayed in many 5 star hotels throughout the world) I have never seen the selection of freshly squeezed juices available anywhere else that the Sofitel have on offer - From beetroot, celery, cucumber to watermelon. The breakfast selection caters for all tastes with good quality fresh food available in abundance. The poolside food is very tasty but a little expensive for casual dining. I also ate in AOC and have a very nice steak, although I felt the menu could have more variety. Great outdoor dining areas available.

    The beach is a minute away and since my last visit 2 years ago this area has been massively regenerated. There are now a huge choice of restaurants literally on the hotel's doorstep.

  • Sport & Leisure

    I love the pool area - although its small it is relaxing - would not be the best for family/ kids but if you are looking for relaxation and great service at the pool area this is the spot. Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel including the pool and outdoor areas although this can be patchy at times. The beach is across the road (the hotel do not have a private beach area but offer a beach pack to guests - mats, towels water etc) Great changing facilities which can be used for early arrival/late departures

  • Service

    The service is what makes this hotel really stand out for me. From the porters to the reception staff, room service and food and beverage the staff are excellently trained and always willing to oblige whatever the request. The rooms are cleaned twice daily with fresh towels and a night turndown.

I have stayed in various hotels all over the world but I have not stayed in one with this level of quality, however as with everything it does come at a price, although probably not as expensive as you would think. I have not rated the complaints because I had no reason to complain about anything, it was blissful, and you get free entry into the wild wadi waterpark next door,,,, brilliant. I live in UAE and will definitely be using this hotel again read hotel review

Top luxury holiday in a city of greats
  • Recommended hotel
  • Singles
  • Translated
  • City break
  • March 2014
The Sofitel Jumeirah Beach is one of the many near the new marina from Dubai. This is a high-rise typical for this district. The entire hotel makes a new and very clean impression. In each room and in the entire area of the hotel, the guests have free WiFi access. However, this is sometimes somewhat slow. But it is good enough to receive and send emails. You can book the hotel with breakfast, which you can enjoy in the restaurant or on the terrace in front of the restaurant. read hotel review
  • Location
    5.0

    The walking area from the district runs from the hotel. Directly across the way is a new mall with different shops and restaurants. Since most of the construction is already done, there is no noise from the construction. You will find a few restaurants along the street. There is something for every taste there, also the omnipresent fast food chains like Subway. If you are looking for an original Arabic restaurant, you will be disappointed. The beach starts directly behind the new mall. During my stay, the stay was disturbed through the construction measures. Evenings, particularly on Thursdays, there is a special show on the street when a few residents from Dubai drive their fleet on the street in front of the hotel. From Ferrari to Lamborghini to Rolls Royce - everything is there. The Metro from Dubai is somewhat farther away. Nevertheless, you can find a taxi easily, which will bring you everywhere. Thus, the known malls from the city can be reached in a quick and relatively inexpensive manner.

  • Sport & Leisure
    5.0

    The pool is on the 3rd floor of the hotel in an attachment, which stretches over the street. However, you do not notice anything about this by the pool. From the pool there is access to the beach without having to cross the street. Guests who want to go to the beach can rent a lounger in the fitness area of the hotel. The pool is not particularly large. Sport swimmers will not get what they want here, but it is good enough for cooling off. There is also a pool bar so that you can enjoy a drink while sitting in the pool. Around the pool you will find enough sun loungers and the comfortable sofas. There is also a waiter at the pool where you can order something to drink and eat. At the bar by the pool you can get 2 towels per guest for a stay on the pool.

  • Room
    6.0

    I had a double room for single usage. This was comfortably large and had a balcony with a direct sea view. The equipment is very modern. There is a flat screen television with 3 German programs, a minibar and a kettle with everything you need in order to prepare a tea or coffee. The bathroom is large with a large bathtub and divided large level rain shower and separate, unfortunately somewhat small toilet. There is also a highlight in the bathroom. If you open the two doors right next to the bathtub, you will have a direct view of the television. Through a volume controller next to the bathtub, you can get the sound from the television program into the bathroom through the speaker and thus, watch television while in the bathtub.

  • Service
    6.0

    The employees from the hotel are very friendly and helpful. However, you should be able to speak English, because you cannot get anywhere with German. At a special bar, there are employees that help the guests with all concerns like booking excursions. The rooms are cleaned daily. The room cleaning is carried out thoroughly.

    I can only evaluate the restaurant where I had breakfast every morning. This is relatively large and has a winter garden area and an area on the terrace. The breakfast is offered in a buffet form. At several bars throughout the restaurant, you can find everything you could ever want. You can have fresh egg dishes prepared as you would like. You can also have juices squeezed fresh. You will find Arabic sweets, crepes, different types of bread, different jams, meat and cheese types and also baked beans and bacon for those who like the English breakfast. There is even a table where you will find dishes made of pork (and that in a Muslim country)

    pool is just beautiful! The only thing to complain about is that it does not get a lot of sun. This is due to the buildings near the hotel and the placement of the pool. A beach kit is offered when going to the beach, make sure to ask for it!

    The room is always perfect for your arrival. Honestly there has never been a complaint or an issue that we had to deal with. The duvets and bed are quite comfortable! The room is a nice size for a couple or a family with one child.

    There are a few restaurants in the hotel, maybe 3-4. I have only eaten breakfast by the pool so that is the only one I can comment on. It was served promptly and the coffee was perfect! It is best to leave a cash tip so we can guarantee that the workers will receive it!

I had a very pleasant stay here in Dubai's Sofitel Jumeirah Beach Hotel, The room featured a very nice balcony, room was spacious equipped with everything you need. The Bathroom had a nice tub and separate (rain) shower which was very nice! The hotel was a 5min walk from the metro (stop Marina Lake Towers) and in the future there will stop a tram here as well. across the hotel there building a new boulevard with nice shops so even more amenities will be nearby. Surrounding the hotel there are a few restaurants where you can have a nice dinner ... or breakfast. read hotel review

We stayed at Hotel Sofitel for 6 nights during Honeymoon. We booked Honeymoon Package through RPC Holidays. They recommended this beach hotel. The hotel is located at the end of "The walk". Not far away to the beach. Quite comfortable and luxurious. The hotel staff is very polite and efficient. Rooms are well protected with noisy construction outside and gives a peaceful in-room experience. Breakfast spread was like wow. We enjoyed the buffet which has a vast selection of excellent food. The Club Lounge was a pleasant place to relax and enjoy a good selection of refreshments. The swimming pool ... area is breathtaking and extremely relaxing. This hotel would suit anyone.be it families/couples or whatever. Thanks RPC Holidays for this memorable honeymoon trip. Will surely be there again! read hotel review
