Jumeirah beach location
One of the cheaper 5 star hotels around Jumeirah
Good customer service, facilities - gym, etc
Construction taking place around Jumeirah
The pool can be shady and it is overshadowed by the taller buildings that are constructed behind
I've been to Dubai a few times over the years, and I usually stay in a 4 star plus hotel. However, this year I fancied staying in a 5 star. The Hilton Hotel was about the same price as the 4 star, with the added bonus that comes with a 5 star of more facilities!
Our rate included Breakfast. There are plenty of deals on the internet, but you'll find some good deals directly on the Hilton web site.
As soon as you arrive you are greeted with fruit cocktails, which is just what you need to chill out and relax after a long journey! I'd recommend staying in a sea view room (Deluxe Plus) as a land view (although cheaper) will show views of construction, at least at the time of writing in 2006.
The rooms are comfortable, quiet and air-conditioned with the usual en-suite facilities, and there is a full sized hair dryer! There's a Kids Club too, which is free to use until about 6pm. All the staff seem friendly and welcoming.
