Rated 5 out of 5 by MichelleD Surpassed expectations
This was our first time in Dubai and this hotel was chosen based on the excellent reviews it has been getting from other guests. Facilities are excellent, especially the pool area (with separate child and adult sections - huge plus) and the breakfast buffet has great selection and good quality. Service by the pool area was also quick and efficient.
We had a problem with our room on the first night, we had booked a room with a sea view and was given a room on ground level with no sea view (although facing the beach, but no view essentially). While a good room (especially if you have kids), it didn't meet our needs as we wanted the view. The staff at reception found us a new room on the next day with a fantastic view. Excellent customer service.
Will highly recommend this hotel to friends looking for a place to stay in Dubai and will definitely come back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lunardream Truly great resort!!
We have chosen this hotel for a forum that included very high-level attendants, some ranking as ministers. The hotel did its best to accommodate and facilitate to the requirements of our guests and to us as well. Although everything was perfect, the Cisco-type room phone sets are confusing and not easy to use. The hotel extended its most services in accommodation and hospitality to provide us with a wonderful experience!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JGIN Everything in the hotel is perfect! Amazing!
Everyone in the hotel was so attentive, cheerful and wonderful! As Platinum, I got upgraded and have access to Lounge which has amazing food choices from breakfast to afternoon tea to happy hour. The view is fantastic! Everything in the room, the pool, the beach are perfect. The best Westin or SPG service I've ever experienced.
It's a pity when they said I won't get SPG points since they don't participate in the program.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ab83 Great hotel but with a flaw
Westin is a good hotel that I would revisit again in the future.
- All rooms with balcony.
- The pool and resort facilities are excellent.
- The restaurants (Bussola, Spice Emporium, Hunter's) are beyond excellent.
- One big flaw in the hotel is that most room doors are positioned towards the open lobby which could be noisy. People laughing in the lobby, adjacent guests slamming their room doors or just one child crying in the lobby could be heard in the room.
- Staff was average, on my arrival there was no one to direct me towards reception, I booked a smoking king room two weeks in advance, but was told that I either can have a smoking twin room, or a smoking king on the 9th floor which the receptionist did not recommend because it was under a club and it would be noisy, and as far as I'm concerned there is no club in westin?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Didi "Westin Dubai" should be called "Bestin Dubai"
I spent 10 days together with my wife and my my 15 years old daughter in that marvellous and stylistic hotel. which is located in front of gigantic skyscrapers having direct access to the wonderful beach and the fantastic huge pool in a blossoming garden. We had booked a seaside room with a large balcony on the executive floor from which we overlooked the beach and the palm. Ambiance and service absolutely perfect.

everything in this hotel was absolutely fabulous especially the breakfast out of this world if only the waiters did their job properly our request for hot drinks and cutlery used to take more than 15 minutes coming when our food is cold dirty dishes stay on your table until you leave definetly not what you expect from a five star resort the executive lounge on the 8th floor is superb and service out of this world

Rated 5 out of 5 by cdeenen1 Great hotel, Great staff
Hotel is great, staff is amazing. Facilities staff went over and beyond. The Bell man was great(!) Breakfast in the morning is awesome.
Things that I didn't like were:
- very slow ("hi-speed") internet. They say it was 4mbit, but it's only really 2mbit, and it's expensive for a week for internet.
- They sometimes have parties outside, and music was blasting until 4am at night.
- They don't work with SPG points.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bavarians A wonderful week for the two of us
Reception/ Concierge/ Guest relation demonstrated always attention, competence and friendlyness - quality of food, beverage and the personal service in Blue Orange and especially Bussola restaurant and pizzeria great! The caring service of housekeeping and the helpfulness round the pools and along the beach simply overwhelming... We enjoyed our time at the WESTIN Dubai very much...and hope we can come back!

The Hotel is beautifull and the garden and poolside are amazing. Food was exellent in every restaurant of the hotel. We really enjoyed the spa and live piano music in the lobby. The staff was kind and helpful. Special thanks to concierge desk and to Mr. Anshar Basheer for organizing our dinner cruise and many other activities. Our one week holiday was a success and you had a major role in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eric24 Top Hotel with top staff
We stayed at the Westin Dubai for a stop-over in October with two kids (9 and 4). The Hotel is nicely located on the beach next to Dubai marina. The Hotel itself is very nice. Rooms conformable and foods of high quality, especially breakfast. But the best is the staff. Absolutely friendly, well trained and helpful. Everybody was nice to the kids, which makes the parents happy. Thank you very much.

We have just returned from a week at this hotel, staff were great, location perfect and our overall experience was superb. It was our 50th anniversary and our room had been decorated with rose petals and there was a bottle of champagne, although still not sure whether this was the hotel or our son that had arranged this. We also received a bottle of wine and a card from the Hotel Manager (HRL).

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 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 5 out of 5 by Saud14 Healing & Relaxion
I had an urgent surgery on the day i checked in at the hotel, I did find that the staff of the hotel are very helpful and that's a competitive advantage among the hotels in Dubai.
I did spend my healing period at this hotel and to be honest The Westin Hotel is 5 stars and act as a 7 stars hotel to exceed the limit that reflect on us (as a guests) extreme positively.

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.

Everything is nice,the ressort is wide and well equiped, beaches and pool clean, staff everywhere polite, smiling and friendly, food in the restaurants very good and once more staff very friendly...but why should all this be "spoiled" by the very,very high sound of the sport activities , rather early in the morning ?

Staying at the Hotel to attend Caledonian Society Chieftain Ball being held there. Service at Reception, was excellent, room beautiful and all staff very attentive. The Ballroom, the venue for the event, was superb and the food also to be highly recommended. Would I stay at the hotel again, yes, in a heartbeat.
