I Recommend this hotel For Garden with seaview , when it is not a week end.Otherwise it is very noisy with strong music disturbing us when we are in the garden trying to have some rest.
THe beach and the sea are also polluted by steamboats and others.Boats are very noisy.
I recommend also the breakfast in the morning and the assistance and welcom from Hussein at the reception desk.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Naveed20 DISAPPOINTING
I arrived at 3.20 pm my room was not ready after waiting for one hour gave up and left for a meeting.
The room looked very bare and empty no slippers which are almost in every hotel.
Bath towel seemed to be half the size of towels provided in other hotels.
Outside staff at the door missing and if present not interested in getting you a taxi excusing themselves by saying there is a taxi crisis.
With so many new hotels in dubai why would one come and stay at this JADED HOTEL OFFERING NOTHING SPECIAL EXCEPT THE SEA.

Rated 4 out of 5 Great location with comfortable n beautiful Rooms
Hotel n services were great. Duty manager Mr. amadu served us with state of the art customer service which i have never experienced before. Staff was very good n cooperative. Faced few problems but staff fixed them very quickly and happily. Room service guy(Kumar), food serving guys in buffet specially a guy named Israr and Chefs were so professional, cooperative and helpful to their guests i will recommend every one to stay at this hotel as it will be an unforgettable experience of your life.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RKIN Not as per Sheraton Standards
My present stay at this Hotel, was less than a pleasent experience. For the following reasons:-
(I) I was made to wait for over 1.5 hours, after the schedule check in time, which was at 3 pm, I was given room around 4.30 pm. I had to hang around, doing nothing.
(II) The room had not too fresh smell, it was smelling bad.
(III) I was asked for a upgrade to sea view room, however I got was only partial sea view. Though the charges were reversed, but that is not sufficient.
(iv) The request for the complimentary breakfast was not responded. That was unfortunate. Yes or no, would have been sufficent
(v) The Room decor was absent, the walls were blank, did not give any nice look.
(vI) The accessories provided at Bathroom was mediocre and scant andeven the towels in the bathroom were
torn and had threads coming out in corners. Very Bad

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ginger08 This hotel has much to offer
My son and I recently had a stopover in Dubai - our first experience. The staff at the Sheraton were outstanding - in all areas. The resort facilities were excellent - and the the food delicious especially at he peacock restaurant. Only problem was we wanted to stay longer so we could enjoy and indulge in what the hotel and resort has to offer. We hope to go back soon. Aussie Mum and son.

Second visit to Dubai, and all I wanted to do was swim in the Arabian Sea. Thanks to the perfect location of the Sheraton, my dreams were answered. The hotel provided wonderful service. Thankyou to all the staff in the main restaurant for catering to all our needs. Reception, Concierge and grounds staff where all committed to service. Keep up the good work. I remain Sheraton faithful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hiba Feedback about the hotel as requested
The food was not good at all.
The staff are really tuff, for instance, I asked for Turkish Coffee in the meeting and they replied sorry because if we bring for you others will ask too!!!
The cleaning was not very good.
I asked for another room with balcony they said Yes then at the time of check in they said sorry no availability.

this is one of the worst sheraton i stayed with lousy and cocky staff on front desk which are not helpful at all . House keeping is so bad that we have to call 10 times a day to get our basic shampoo, shower gel etc . Beside the locatiion and the friendly staff in the cafe this hotel is not worth staying at all at this price

Rated 2 out of 5 by Marishka78 This hotel has low service
We were 4 people in the room and every morning the cleaner left us only one big towel,so we ended up calling to reception to get a towel.Also nearly every evening there was a queue for dinner because the space was very small.Moreover,the hotel does not provide any bus to the malls.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dubai2013abc Different shortcomings
The staff (except the concierges) was very unfriendly, it was very loud due to the music from the disco and the construction sites, the bathroom was not really clean. All in all, the hotel does not deserve five stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Angy One of the worst
The hotel itself has a good beach side and a panoramic lounge on top but, staff attitude...one of the owrst in Starwwod.
Especially the managment prefer to give up the trouble instead to solve them !
Dubai offers many other hotels better than this !

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sassy Needs Improvement - Room and Service Staff
Will not consider if I'm back in Dubai. Room does not fulfil the rating of a 5* hotel and the Service Staff are not at all trained to fit into a 5* hotel. Need an overhaul and improvement to the hotel room, facilities and service staff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ackeron Been here 2 months: highly recommended!
Staying in Dubai several months for a work project (completely un-related to this hotel or the travel industry), I have settled in the Sheraton for about 2 months now.
Great friendly staff that will suit your needs as much as possible, great sports facilities (big gym with windows, sauna, 2 squash courts with tournaments and lessons!), big swimming pool with pool bar and most of all... the beach is just 20 meters away!
Really a nice place to stay for all types of people, I am looking forward to my remaining stay.
Only "minus" side: wifi internet is often unreliable in the bedrooms (but totally fine in common areas)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trelawney Great stay
I was sceptical about staying here at first as the booking procedure via SPG was not good and did not do this hotel justice however,as soon as we walked into reception we were treated very well indeed.We were made to feel welcome as our room was not ready due to our early arrival.
During our stay all our expectations were exceeded and a special mention must go to Claire on reception, Mr Soudy by the pool and Francisco in the Azure restaurant.
The room was kept beautifully clean by the domestic staff and I would strongly recommentd this hotel to anyone travelling to Dubai.
It was a shame that SPG did not meet our needs better when booking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ares71 This hotel needs "new staff"
I work in hospitality business myself in a 5* Luxury Hotel & Resort, I've been all over the World during my life and stay in few places that reflect what a 5* should provide to their guest at all the time, but unfortunately this time has not been the same. As SPG member, I'm a bit disappointed, the Staff needs a lot more training on the guest service side and they need to be able to speak proper English!! One night at the Bar on the beach(which was empty) me and my girlfriend wants to have some wine before retreat in our room. The guy was on duty pointed out straight away the policy to seated on the Futon sofà was a minimum spending of 500 Dh and the time when the bar was closing,even been bothered if we were resident guests or not. When I ask for a bottle of wine, he came back with two glasses of wine....and all that seated on the small stools on the beach when the place was completely empty. This is not 5* luxury, this is a very bad 2* were another guest who pay any money have should complain straight away to the Manager on Duty. Said that I will continue be the guest of my favourite groups of Sheraton Hotels where I live, because at least there, they make me feel more welcome. The whole Concierge Team was very helpful and attentive, always with the smile. Reception as well. Staff needs training on both side. (Service and English)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Vincos They Try Harder - Affordable Luxury
Many reviews mention that this is one of the older properties in Jumeirah and this is true. But at the price, it offers a very fine - and even luxurious - Dubai beach/resort option. I arranged a airport pick-up through the hotel the night before - it was reasonable-priced and efficiently handled even at this short notice. Both car and driver were top-notch. I was chagrined by the approach as they are building a skyscraper next door and everything is covered in tarpaulins (including the parked cars in the forecourt so it looked kind of creepy but, of course, this is a temporary situation. Once inside, it was an oasis of calm and beauty. The staff was very eager to please and SPG recognition was high. Surprisingly, although it was 17h00, no provision for my Platinum upgrade had been made so there was lots of bustling around to assign a room and then it wasn't ready. The wait was short, the room was just standard but it did have a sea view and club floor location. While not unpleasant, rooms will be due for updating very shortly. The Club is one of the best I have seen - excellent meal and drinks services throughout the day. In addition, a lovely snack platter and fruit basket were delivered to my room. Breakfast could be optionally taken in the Palm Garden restaurant and this was superb. Grounds and pool are lovely, beach a little less so as it is severely deteriorated and makeshift fences made it look undesirable. I imagine this is a work in progress so wouldn't deduct points for it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mark94 Worst Starwood resort I have stayed at
We have stayed at many Starwood resorts in the past and were expecting a similar plesent experience - but how wrong could we be.
This is not a resport for sleeping at - as the construction work starts at 7am next door, and goes on to midnight.
It is also not a resort to eat or drink at- it is virually impossible to get served at the poolside bar, and the best thing about the "seafood buffet" were the steak and chicken - the seafood was almost non-existant.
It is also not a resort to go to the pool - we were stunned to hear that the pool area was full, so we could only go to the beach area. At weekends they sell day tickets which mean hotel guests cannot get to the pool.
The final insult was it took them nearly half an hour to bring our bags from our room to our waiting car- inspite being told every 5 mins they were " on their way".
All in all a very disappointing family vacation. We will not visit again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Razzou Should Better Manage the Basics
My second stay in a year; improvement needed. There is an apparent absence of uniform standards in managing the basics. Examples:
- I called the hotel ahead of check-in asking for reception. Repeatedly no answer; last call the extension I was connected to hanged-up on me after 7 rings. Told the Operator I'm Platinum checking-in shortly and need to talk to Front Office or Duty Manager; 3 minutes hold then "Manager and Reception all busy". When I called back I was put on 9 minutes hold; so I gave up; all this within less than half hour at around 10 pm.
- On check-in, although I identified myself as Platinum and offered to show my SPG, the receptionist then said I can only get the Gold amenity. And he did not know my room rate include "dinning credit". Plus he does not have the king-bed room with the smoking preference that I booked. It was after 10 pm such a room must have been held for me since 3pm. After much explanations Hussein got my SPG status, understood the "dining credit" rate and took some actions to resolve the situation (he apologized, offered complimentary wine and followed-up to check if the 2-single-beds assigned room is acceptable). Still, on check-out I had to point out and explain the rate with "dinning credit" to another receptionist - why not familiar with a long-running Sheraton promotion?
- I got called in room more than once and then a knock on door, all within couple of hours, from staff enquiring when I'm checking-out; although I had informed the receptionist ahead that same day of the time. No coordination? Doesn't check-out time info go in an internal hotel system for all staff to see?
In the end, the good actions by Hussein at reception (after he finally got it), the friendly in-room dining service and the nice beach contributed to an acceptable short stay.
This is one of the older hotels in the area and I think better attention to basic standards and details is required to retain repeat and SPG status customers.

We have travelled extensively both on business and on holidays virtually worldwide but have never ,until this trip ,experienced an Hotel. where the Staff in all departments are so willing and happy to help .They always have smiling faces and seem genuinely pleased to be of assistance. We think this reflects an excellent Employer -Employee relationship and this is good for Guests.We sincerely hope that we will be able to visit again, but at our tender ages one cannot plan too far ahead!! A truly magical holiday. Thank you all so much for making it thus.

My sister and I stayed for a long weekend. I cannot fault anything about the hotel. The location, facilities and room were all great. In particular the service from every member of staff was exceptional from requests we made prior to arriving, right through until check out. We arrived very early to check in and our flight left late after check out, however, if our exact request could not be met we were offered very acceptable alternatives on every single occasion. The Manager of this hotel should be proud of the excellent customer service that is offered from all employees in the hotel. Your team of employees are a credit to you. We are definitely returning for another stay based on the fantastic break we have just returned from.
