Rated 3 out of 5 by jfg2003 Not a great stay
I am almost lifetime platinum with Starwood, and I was underwhelmed by this property. It is older and tatty which is fine but not for the price that I paid. I had a room booked at a much higher end non-Starwood property and decided to stay here instead which I regret.
• More of a vacation property; not a great business hotel. DJ at the property's club played late into the night two evenings making sleep difficult.
• Invoice incorrect upon checkout; still waiting for a corrected version days later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MandM50 2nd stay and better than 1st
What can we say, our second visit in four months and the hotel continues to exceed our expectations. From Zee who managed our booking expertly, to the pool guys, the restaurant teams and a big thanks to Ahmit who rectified a small issue in our room when we arrived quickly and never lost his smile. If you are looking for rest, relaxation and pampering then this is perfect for you. We are looking forward to returning next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rebecca2014 Excellent stay in Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort and Spa Hotel
My husband and I had stayed in Le Meridien Resort and Spa Dubai for 3 nights in early Sep and we've got a good memories during our stay!
First of all, the hotel lobby is nice and the staffs are attentive. Our room is very comfortable with a wonderful seaview!
We went to the concierge counter for local tour enquiry. The staff is very friendly and introduced the tour briefly. We did book the tour on the 2nd day of stay.
On the 2nd day of our stay, we chose to have a lunch buffet in Brasserie restaurant. Surprisingly the buffet served wide range of cuisine such as Japanese food and even Chinese food, not to mention that the environment is very relaxing. We had a nice chat with your Main Chef in Brasserie. He is very nice and introduced the dishes to us. What a great service we never expected!
Thanks for everything Le Royal Meridien did for us and we must recommend our relatives and friends to stay in this hotel when they come to Dubai.

It was my first visit to Dubai and my first visit to Royal Meridian Hotel. I would certainly recommend my friends and family as it was a very enjoyable stay.
Staff could not be more helpful and facilities were excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lubnani79 Best beach hotel in Dubai, very professionally run and never disappointed
Have stayed at this hotel 8 times and have never been disappointed. The best part of the hotel is the beach, spa and gym. The Al Khaima restaurant is a great lebanese restaurant with a very romantic setting and offers probably the best shishah in the world. The rooms are fine but a little outdated in design but are well maintained. Staff is very professional and I have only had one problem over the 8 stays which was resolved instantly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hammy1 Another good stay - with a few small niggles
We had another lovely time at your hotel. The staff are what makes the difference. Thanks to Albin, Jose and Anand for being helpful by the pool areas.
Shame the club rooms has been changed ( no drinks / food ) this will make us think about where we stay next year.
I think we should have been told there was work going on in 3 areas of the grounds, this did not stop us from enjoying our stay.
This is still one of our favourite hotels in Dubai and will still come back. Would highly recommend this hotel despite a few of my comments.

Like a good wine or a classic car this hotel just gets better and better. The staff deliver excellent customer service which cannot be faulted. We have stayed in other hotels in the Emirates but this hotel is simply the best.

I have stayed at Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort and Spa on many occasions , however when I booked my vacation this time I was not advised that the main pool was closed for refurbishment and at the same time the beach bar was also closed for refurbishment which was dissapointing as it spoilt an otherwise enjoyable stay once again at Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort and Spa.

This hotel put a lot of effort to please the guests regardless to the cost, I received a welcoming drink and deserts from the hotel, also I’ve been upgraded after I told them I’m in honey moon and really I appreciate this warm welcoming.

We continue to come back starting from 2002 so this must mean something? I during my travels with my wife all over the world and in particular the middle east we have to say that this is the most friendly and accommodating hotel we have visited The staff go out of their way at all times to make sure your time in the hotel is something to appreciate and to recommend to all our friends.
We are looking forward to our next visit in 2025.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HelmutK OUr favourite place...
We have stayed 5 times in the Royal Meridien Dubai and must say that it is our preferred hotel in Dubai.
Though looking at the hotel building from the outside you may believe that one of the oldest hotels in the area may not be top of the list, this hotel exceeds expectations in a number of areas:
- excellent staff, friendly, responsive, smiling; obviously well managed
- excellent facilities: though old, permanently renovated and refurbished, high quality;
- excellent restaurants (although our favourite, "Fusion" was unfortunately closed;
- and last but not least, one of (two my knowledge) only two hotels in Dubai who has a clinic with 24 hour service.
We´ll be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GMC58 Simply the Best
Staying at Le Royal Meridien always surpasses all our expectations. This hotel really sets the standard for premier service and amenities. From the moment we arrived to the time we checked out we found the staff effortlessly polite, attentive, courteous and most helpful. The hotel is very rare in that it has a number of superb restaurants on the premises. The new Geales Restaurant is amazing and the food is delicious and the service exceptional. Our favourite is still Rhodes Twenty10 but we are very spoilt for choice. We always stay in the Club Tower Rooms as we enjoy all that it has to offer. It really is hard to leave this hotel and re-enter the real world!! Thank you, once again to Mark and all at Le Royal Meridien for another fabulous stay. We look forward to seeing you again at the beginning of September.

My father and I have returned from 10 nights stay, we had the most amazing time. The hotel is a true gem, so clean and all the staff so pleasant. Nothing was too much of an ask. As for the party on the 23rd, it was the highlight of the holiday and so unexpected - thank you! It was the little touches, like fresh fruit and ice in our room daily - not to mention the glorious fresh fruit and mince pie basket left in our room on Christmas Day. we had a great time and I will highly recommend this hotel to others

Rated 4 out of 5 by Razzou Great Beach, Good Outlets ... Just Improve SPG Recognition
Got a tower sea-view room for my Platinum status; nice balcony and furnishing. The club lounge is spacious but with less premium drinks on offer vs other SPG properties in Dubai. One of the best beach areas I've seen, with a pool-bar serving you whilst in-water. Room service and F&B outlets leave little to be desired.
Wished they upgraded me to one of the available suites as I extended my stay another 4 days. And wish I got the double-points per the SPG promotion (it turns out this hotel did not participate). Had to also sort out the less-than-actual room nights they recorded towards my SPG membership.
Still, one of the better beach properties in Dubai.

I cannot praise our family holiday at this hotel enough. From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were made to feel special. Nothing was ever too much trouble from any member of staff. The tower suites we were allocated were amazing and the views from the balcony were fantastic. You were spoilt for choice of food in the restaurants with plenty of variety. Everywhere was clean and immaculate. In addition all the little touches for example fresh fruit and water in your room, cold flannels and cool water sprays by the pool made this holiday just perfect. We would highly recommend this hotel and cannot wait to stay again when we return to Duabi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GMC58 A Happy Place To Be
We have stayed at LRM on many occasions and yet the level of service from picking up the hotel car at the airport until we have checked out never fails to impress us. The motto of LRM is 'A Happy Place To Be' and you can tell from the staff that they do thoroughly enjoy their work. As for us it really is 'A Happy Place To Be.' The grounds are immaculate and the cleanliness of the hotel is exceptional. The Beach Bar and Rhodes Twenty10 are personal favourites but we cannot wait to see the new Club Lounge and the refurbished Maya. Already planning a return visit. Thank you for another absolutely wonderful stay.

Having just returned from a weeks holiday at Le Royal Meridian, I can only express my gratitude to the hotel staff for their friendliness and thoughtfulness, that made our holiday a fantastic experience. The hotel itself was to an exceptional standard of cleanliness and it offered everything you could possibly wish for. The food was to a very high standard with a vast choice available.
A hotel I will definitely be returning too!!! Thank you.

You cannot fault the service in this hotel. The staff are exceptional. The grounds around the hotel are amazing. The new Geals restaurant and the Maya and Twenty10 are fantastic, the food is pure heaven and cater for types of taste buds . Also the location is great, you can walk outside to various places and there only a short walk to the metro. Also there is a very friendly atmosphere about the place. We will certainly be coming back again and recommending others to stay at this wonderful hotel.

After encountering a couple of quirks when I stayed in July I decided to return again. Best decision I've made! The staff was efficient and friendly, the room was immaculate with a magnificent view and the food was perfection. I can't think about staying in another hotel again and am already planning for my next trip.
