Rated 2 out of 5 by Ianche Hotel need to refurbish
We were looking forward to our last night stay in Dubai at Jumeirah Beach and we checked in to this hotel at 6pm on 5 Dec 2014 with my wife using my 12,000 starpoints and a suite night award. This was the last night we are staying in Dubai after a one week vacation.
However, to our disappointment, we found that the "suite" offered is really disappointing and the condition were appalling. As such, we requested to change the room to deluxe room with balcony despite already used my suite night award. To our disappointment again, the room condition were not much better.
Being a frequent traveller, i have stayed in many starwood properties and was never disappointed with any of the properties. However, on our very last night of my vacations, we were both disappointed. One key problem was the rest room, which were not well maintained and really in need of upgrading. My wife actually commented: "We might as well stay in a budget hotel for the night."
Thus, we decided to check out immediately and found ourselves another hotel to settle for the night. To add on to the displeasure, i was not offered to redeem back the starpoints that i have already used for the booking.
However, i do have to comment that the hotel staffs were polite and assisted with my requests professionally.

The Sheraton JBR is one of my favorite places to stay. The resort is beautiful and the staff are some of the best in the world. A top notch experience all around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michael1954 The only place to stay
If you want a beach resort holiday in Dubai, then the Sheraton Jumeirah Beach Hotel is the only place to stay in my opinion. I have been going to Dubai for the last 18 years and have seen its infrastructure change so much but the Sheraton Hotel on Jumeirah Beach has only got better. It is easy to get around Dubai by taxis which are not expensive or by the Metro or the new Tram service, so this Hotel offers a great base to do all your exploring and shopping and a great place to relax when you want to do nothing. The facilities and restaurants are fantastic but best of all is the staff, they are so friendly and helpful and efficient in every detail.

The hotel staff was very friendly and I enjoyed to stay in the hotel.
I stayed at the hotel for business purpose, so the only thing which wasn't good, not to say bad, was the internet access speed. The bandwidth make it impossible to work from the hotel. Please increase the bandwidth, then it would be a perfect stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Philly5 This hotel has everything
Having visited Dubai on several occasions for holidays, the Sheraton has everything you need including private beach access without being as expensive as some of the other hotels. Like all of the better hotels in Dubai, the service is of a very high standard. Breakfast is a touch expensive if you are not a big eater first thing in the morning and so nearby cafes for a continental breakfast at a cheaper price might be a better option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zimtraveller Another perfect stay in this Dubai jewel
I have been staying in the Sheraton Jumeriah for many years and thank goodness it has survived the total revamp of the marina area. A revamp which has been very succesful, making the Sheraton an even more attractive location. It is made even more special through staff continúity, especially Avril Holmes and her team in the SPG lounge. Avril has been in the hotel longer than any other member of staff, and the hotel wouldn't be the same without her!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sussie678 An okay hotel
It was my first time at this hotel. At the check-in be ready to pay taxes that are not included in your bill. It's a lot of construction going on here, traffic is terrible especially on Friday evening. You can even see construction site from the beach.
The room is quite nice and spacious, free water everyday, housekeeping did a good job cleaning. Internet is free but very slow, you want it faster you have to pay.
The breakfast buffet was disapointing, small restaurant, very crowded with long lines. Classic selection of food nothing special for such a price, very expensive.
The grass beach is nice, if you get there early you wait for the beach attendant to bring you cushions and adjust your umbrella, they're used with tipping, don't expect them to be nice without money. One of the attendants looked like he didn't want to be there.
If you're late you don't even get a chair, you can use the sand beach wich is ok but the beach chair cushions are very old and yellowish unacceptable for a 5 star hotel.
Be carefull going in the water, running boats all around you. The beach is not private at all, security staff but especially on Friday it's not helping at all, it's not okay for outside people to be starring at you and taking pictures.
The metro station is 15 min away. The transportation desk guys gave me wrong directions like they did to me sending me 3 metro stations further than my actual destination.
I won't be returning at this hotel, you can find better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kurt58 Very nice hotel.....a few steps from the Marina
A very nice and quiet hotel, right next to the Marina (5 minutes walk). The facilities are globally very good. The hotel, about 30 min by cab from the downtown area, is very nicely located, right next to the Dubai Marina with all its restaurants, shopping facilities etc. The hotel is not particularly suitable for families - as there is no kids club and the playground rather small. I would recommend the hotel without hesitation.

As always, the staff at the Sheraton JBR was absolutely world class. From the valet drivers, to the check in, to the cleaning crew, to the club lounge, every person was top notch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TomTom2014 Great Hotel, just not quite 5 star
The hotel itself is fine, a little outdated compared to other hotels in the area but other then that its fine. The reception team, especially Terrance is great and responsive, however the F&B team especially the pool bar team is miles away from 5 star service. The pool and beach area itself are nice but I still find myself wishing to be indulged in luxury, as a proper 5 star property should. If you find a good rate then stay, but don't go out of your way to stay here. And the doors and walls are paper thin, allowing you to hear everything in the hallway and next doors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jh94566 Old tired and expensive
Hotel is old and tired. Way too expensive. Much, much, much nicer places in Dubai for way less money. One month after my trip and still trying to get the hotel and SPG to credit me with my earned SPG points.
Pool is way too small for a resport. Nowhere to seek refuge from the heat.
Do not spend the extra money on the garden suites. They are shoddy, moldy, and no where near a garden.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nayte18 Excellent Stay
I’d like to take the time and inform you that I was extremely happy and very pleased with the treatment during my stay (3 - 16 August 2014) here at the Sheraton Jumeriah Beach Resort again.
As soon as I checked in on the very first day, I received the same treatment that I received during my last stay, which was nothing less than perfect. Your staff at the front desk was so welcoming and caring it made being on a 14-hour flight worth the trip. Being remembered from our last visit, which was over two years ago, makes a person feel special and part of the Sheraton Family. Ali, Kseniya, & Camille were very helpful throughout this visit. Even when not working at the front desk, they take the time to stop and ask you how your day is going and how are you doing. It’s being personal like this, which makes me want to stay here every time when I come over for business or vacation.
I worked with Mrs. Arvil Holmes and Mr. Charles Muhia to make reservations for Mr. Antonio Johnson and myself whom is also here on business. Mrs. Arvil Holmes and her team (Angeleen, Eleazar, John, Mark & Ronaldo) have made us feel very special as all our needs were taken care of when visiting the Club Room.
I want to thank you and your staff again for such a great time during this visit. When I return to Dubai, I will make sure that I stay here at the Sheraton Jumeriah Beach Resort.
