Yet again a fantastic stay at Sofitel Dubai JBR
  • Recommended hotel
  • Families
  • Beach holiday
  • 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.

  • Location
    6.0

    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
    6.0

    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
    6.0

    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

Nice Stay at Hotel Sofitel through RPC Holidays
  • Recommended hotel
  • Couples
  • Beach holiday
  • January 2014
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
