Rated 4 out of 5 by Mohamed67 good hotel but too busy to enjoy
The Hotel is very good and the staff were trying to be good. but i was too annoyed by many called and reminders that i have to leave at 12 PM. three call for the same subject.
add to that in the evening around 7 PM will i was taking nap; someone tried to enter the room. luckily the locker was on!
with the same amount i have paid i would enjoy much more in another hotel near y yours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bob110 Dubai First Timers (and not the last) !!
What a fantastic hotel. We chose the Westin in Dubai to meet my sister and her husband from Australia after not seeing them for 10 years.
All our expectations were fulfilled. The staff were keen and eager to help in any way. Hotel is large, clean and tidy and elegantly decorated.
We arrived on an early flight and our room was available earlier than expected. Stayed 6 nights half board. Recommend a sea view overlooking the pools, atlantis and hotels on the palm and sunset. The city view was smaller and not as good. Well worth the upgrade.
Breakfast and Dinner the food choice was amazing. A special mention has to be for Riyon assistant manager to the Blue Orange who went out of his way to make our stay even better. Excellent knowledge on what to do and where to go within Dubai. No one mentioned our reunion but a complimentary drink appeared for us. No one mentioned a birthday during our stay but a birthday cake appeared on the day. That is what I call superb customer service. Riyon is a great asset to the hotel.
Taxi is the easiest way of travel to the malls, souks and Khalifi Tower and very reasonable. Marina and the Walk close by with good restaurants for an evening stroll.
We enjoyed it sooooo much returning in Nov or Dec 14.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Andymc981 Great location but needs to improve organization
Booked 2 non smoking executive rooms in advance and requested the, close to each other. We're given 2 Rooms at opposite ends of the hotel. Took 2 days to find alternative smoking room. The alternative room then had broken lock and light fittings. Internet quality in one room was very poor. Complained but nothing done about it. Staff were friendly but overall am disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shani Perfect End to our Trip
We booked in to the Westin for 2 nights at the end of an extended stay in Dubai. The Service offered by all members of the team from the reception and concierge to the lifeguards round the pool was well above what I was expecting or had experienced before. The food available in the restaurants is fairly expensive, but is superior quality and the service is always exceptional.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Magnum A Thousand Ways to Say "NO"
I heard "NO" more in the four nights I stayed at your hotel than I've heard in my life! The bottom-line here... the person running this hotel doesn't understand customer service. This has to be a top-down mentality established by management... there is no way so many employees in so many different departments can all be so aligned with the common theme, "Sorry, but NO".

Have spent a week at Westin in March, 13. We were a family with 3 young kids (8, 6 & 1 year). Overall the hotel met our expectation: connection rooms are very comfortable for families with kids; pools are great; mini club was a joy for our girls; food is lovely; great location. Also liked in room dinning: quick, tasty and well presented.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fin1813 Great location
We just had a week in this hotel and it was a wonderful, relaxing break. Perfect location on the beach, beautiful lawned gardens, lots of pools and restaurants to choose from, delicious food and cocktails. We had a Deluxe room with a sea view and it was a joy to wake up every morning with a view of the sea, Palm and the marina.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DubaiResident Bad Customer Service in Dining Outlets
I have experienced only dining in this hotel , and although the food is good and atmosphere as well, the service is far from professional and organised. I am also experiencing it now while booking for a birthday in Bussola, and they keep calling me back with different time of reservation and alot of confusion!

I was totally delighted with the hotel. It is very luxurious, very relaxing and the location is great. The staff are great - very pleasant and efficient and some staff in particular displayed real interest in looking after guests in a way that exceeded my expectations. I would return again without hesitation !

Our arrival was greeted by exceptional staff who welcomed us to the hotel. This really set the tone and experience for our three night stay.
Our room was fantastic, view, size and amenities were five star. Pool was large and not crowded.
We ate at two of the restaurants (italian/thai) and they were superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandrine375 Excellent hotel
The rooms are great, the pool wonderful.
The staff is always there to help. It would be nice to be accompanied to your room when you check in.....the restaurant Blue Orange where the food is delicious, should be separated in different areas. It is too impersonal like that.
Wonderful stay anyway. Thank you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ramin Very poor!
We did not have WiFi in our room for two days, our complaint was ignored.
We were not aware that this hotel does not participate in the SPG points program, so that was a waste for us!
No taxis, we had to wait very long time.
We had to fight with the pool bar staff because they served us warm Rose wine!

Would definitiely recommend the venue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by tfdm67 THE. Place to be for decent money
Our stay at the Westin was outstanding. It's enormous value for decent money!!
There is one thing I would like to criticize but has absolutely no influence on my rating.
You have a section in the pool area which is only addressed to adults resp. no kids under 16! Honestly I find this a discrimination towards any child on this planet. My interpretation of this was: so with kids under 16 you cannot rest in peace! I have a different opinion to this: kids are a result of us parents educating them! Hence if a child dies not respect the demand of theirs parents and/or other adults then not the child is to blame but the person educating it! Hence actually the parents should then be banned from this pool area! Obviously not possible so I would suggest you rethink this rule! Adults demanding such a rule descriminate the living future! And: if in the area where children are allowed adults complain about children not behaving they expect them: tell them to approach their parents and not blame the kids!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Live2design Great hotel and location but no SPG benefits
I found my stay enjoyable with a great location overlooking the Palm island in Dubai. Hotel was very clean and well kept. I did find it odd and disappointing that this Westin does not participate in either the Starwood Preferred Guest program nor the American Express Platinum program.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MX5Guy No SGP Recognition
nice place, but informed on arrival that the owners choose not to participate in SPG. Spent 6 days there< no points, no nights credit. Starwood has a problem with their franchise and the customer takes it in the neck. This likely will cost me my gold status. What a disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Domy Great family place
This was the first time for us (family of four) staying in this hotel in Dubai. We had great expectations and they were all met. From the lobby to the room you can see how much attention is being paid to the details and service. We arrived quite early in the morning and our room was already ready, as we kindly requested prior our arrival. Staff made sure that all is effortless for all of us and were very kind with our children. Breakfast is splendid and service is professional. The pool area is amazing and very clean, great for kids. Rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. Would recommend sea view, but probably there are no bad rooms in this hotel. The location is really good, attractions like Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa etc are 15min drive by taxi (which is affordable). This location is a good choice for everyone who wants to combine relaxed vacation with daily trips to the town attractions. Only disapponitment is that the hotel doesn't participate in SPG program. I hope this will change and that the hotel will keep up the good work. We would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DCgirl Absolute perfection
From the moment we checked in, the service was beyond wonderful. Vera gave us a gorgeous room with a fabulous balcony that looked onto the Arabian Gulf and beautiful hotel grounds. The resort has grassy areas with loungers as well as the beach and pool areas. There's also an adults only area of the pool and beach that was a fabulous surprise. Drinks and food can also be served right to your lounger if you'd rather not move to one of the several tables. The grounds are immaculate, the pools to die for, especially the area around the adults only end and swim up bar, and the hotel beautifully decorated. Rooms have a kettle, glasses, and a mini bar. The Hevenly Bed is just that. We had a sea view room w a balcony (not all do, so request a balcony room) that overlooked the Palm and Arabian Gulf. We enjoyed room service breakfast, which was always delicious, delivered hot and fresh (especially the fruit). We also had lunches on the beach and the food was very good. We did not want to leave and can not wait to return.

The Westin stands far apart from almost every other property in Dubai for it's impeccable staff and attention to customer's needs. In a customer service oriented city and industry, Westin still manages to carve a niche for itself and more importantly, continue to deliver.

This is the second time this happens, and I need to know why as this will impact my decision to stay there again next time or elsewhere
