Rated 5 out of 5 by Plugga Great hotel to relax in after European holiday
On our way home to Australia we decided (family of 12 persons from 7 to 70 years) to have a few days in Dubai to relax after our hectic holiday. The hotel was just perfect for this with there beautiful pools and beach. Kids were happy to swim and make their own fun while adults lay around the pools. Transfer to shopping centres were available if required. Great food. Just what we needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Haitham Amazing hotel and great recognition
I booked a deluxe room for one night and I was upgraded on a very busy weekend to the presidential suite, very huge living room, fitness room, etc... I would definitely come back. service is great. The only downside is I didn't receive any credit toward my platinum status nor points.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lizzie This hotel is fantastic
We stayed at this hotel for the second time, and it was just as great as the first time. The rooms are big and very comfortable, the service is extraordinary and the staff very friendly and helpful. I love the choice you have between beach, garden or pool environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pomi Excellent stay at this luxury hotel.
Right from the start we experienced fantastic service. We arrived very early before our room was ready but the front desk organised to have our room prepared immediately, took our bags & offered us a complimentary breakfast while we waited. The food at the hotel is superb and the choice 2nd to none. The breakfast and dinner buffet were fantastic. We were jetlagged after our flight and beds/pillows were supremely comfortable, the large bathroom was extremely luxurious. All the staff we dealt with were responsive, professional and friendly. We urgently needed our boarding passes printed when we were leaving and this happened without incidence. I had an issue trying to checkin on line with Emirates and again reception offered to fix this for me. The doorman was extremely friendly and helpful and given the awful 42 degree heat I admired his professionalism as being outside was totally uncomfortable. Would recommend to others. We were a family of 3 with (12 year old boy) staying for 48 hours as a stopover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul17 Fantastic high class family hotel
Great surroundings and location, pool and grounds beautiful. Food was of a very high quality. Kids club very good especially male members who were very enthusiastic.
This is a perfect hotel if you want a luxury family holiday.
One minor issue was the excessive noise coming from the Barasti beach club. We requested a quiet room in advance having two you children but were put in the noisiest room overlooking the beach club. This necessitated being moved twice to get a quieter room which was disappointing.

This is a fantastic hotel in a brilliant location. Everything was top class with some of the most friendly staff I have ever come across. Nothing was a problem and they were all very knowledgeable about Dubai. The food was excellent and I will have no hesitation in returning for another vacation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zirk Great hotel, but not for SPG
Fantastic hotel, great location, beautiful setting, and helpful, friendly staff. The problem is that this property does not participate in the SPG program, and that is not clear when one makes reservations. No points, none of the standard gold benefits, etc. The staff did all the could to make up for this, and were hugely helpful, but it was a pain, and we received no SPG points for this stay.

Did not take advantage of the pool and resort facilities but walked around on arrival and they were impressive, and tempting. Staff were all very good and helpful, particularly in the reception. I would certainly return and give myself some time to enjoy the resort and Dubai

Rated 5 out of 5 by Loz123 Great for February
Stayed here for one week.
GOOD STUFF: Location, view, hotel complex - nicely designed, pool area really nice, beach clean and high quality, staff great, room nice. Restaurants good - Thai and Grill superb.
LESS GOOD: water temperature in shower in room fluctuated wildly. Because it is a huge complex linked with the Meridian , perhaps not the most personal service, such as staff asking repeatedly for your room number in service, etc. Poor quality / old / unsuitable boats at the Watersports Centre. Perhaps just the accent but the persons on 'Service express' seemed a little abrupt, but couldn't fault the service from all the staff, very good.

Great stay as usual.
Rooms are spacious and very comfortable.
We definitely enjoyed the view and the balcony; not to mention the heavenly beds!
The pool was our favorite spot. the service at the pool bar could be a bit quicker, but aside of it, everything was just perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smiles14 Magical proposal
To the team at Westin Dubai
My new fiancèe and I would really like to thank you and your team for all you effort put in to make the proposal to absolute bliss for her. It was a magical moment and really appreciate al your efforts. Contacting you by email to arrange the surprise was great and easy with your prompt replies.
In particular I would like to commend the team for
a. Going through that little bit extra in putting all the details to the dinner venue,
b. providing a exclusive waiter (Ameer who was really good) to cater for our needs, who did such a tremendous job. He was there at all points when we needed and also gave us the privacy required.
c. We were very impressed with the full veg menu, hats off to the chef
d. for preparing mouth watering vegetarian dishes. I have no words for the dessert, it was perfect to conclude the night.
e. The decor in the room after the dinner. She was starstruck!! It was beautiful.
More than anything else, just the personal touch that you and your team gave to this proposal.
The rest of the stay was really good, in particular the benefits of staying in an Executive room and the breakfast was outstanding.
All in all,We would definitely recommend your hotel to anyone else visiting Dubai and shall definitely be choosing a westin hotel anywhere across the world and hope to return to you in the future.
Till we meet later....

Great Luxusrious Westin in the hearth of Dubai Marina offers spectacular view to the skyscrapers why haveing leasure stay on the pool side or swimming in the sea.
I stayed just for one night and was upgraded to the big luxury suite what makes my short stay even more comfortable. When asking for late check out, was provided w/o any problems. Front desk staff was friendly and professional. Facilities met the expectations according to pictures I checked beforehead.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ABCDEFG Left me a bit disappointed
Staff should be instructed to shower and maintain minimum levels of hygeine when escorting guests around.
The lighting in the room was very silly, because to have on a light to read in bed meant that the whole room needed to be lit up, which is the silliest thing I've ever seen.
I am an SPG member but was informed via the website that this hotel is not part of that programme. It's a Westin, why isn't it part of it? Why can't I get points from staying there?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jlchad02 Great hotel
Just returned from 10 glorious days at the Westin
The staff,facilities location are wonderful
I experienced some fabulous meals at the spice emporium and hunters - I had probably one of the best steaks I've ever had at hunters
The only downside is during the 'brunch' the noise level does go up considerably and the hotel is very busy
The spa treatments were also wonderful - I will definitely be returning

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul50 Excellent Westin
This was our third visit and we feel that the service and every aspect of the hotel has improved dramatically,not that it wasn't amazing before. The cleanliness,staff,food,pool,lobby are perfect. Maybe the gym could do with a makeover but that is being picky. The chef in the Executive Lounge makes a world class omelette mmmm! Can't wait to return thank you for having us.

Hotel is perfect in every way hotel is clean, staff attentive and friendly nothing is too much trouble and a very good choice of restaurants. They brought flowers to the room for our daughters birthday - nice touch. We will be back for a third stay soon.
( the hotel didn't recognize us as a Starwood guest so very confused on that as its listed as a Starwood hotel!)

This Westin Hotel is sensational. Worthy in every respect. Ironically i liked the staff much more than other guests (who we have no control of anyway).
Indian staff were fabulous. Love to see people who enjoy seeing each other. Safety was clearly of importance to the hotel.
