Loved it!!!

We have recently returned from a wonderful 5 night break, which completely lived up to our expectations The attention to detail and the service we received was amazing. The rooms are large and comfortable with a balcony and a great view of the Dubai skyline. We booked the Club Room upgrade which was worth every penny. This included afternoon tea and alcoholic drinks and nibbles in the evening. Both events provided plenty to eat, and the staff were always on hand to top up your drink when necessary. Every member of staff was friendly and helpful from the guys at the pool whom kept up cool with iced fannels and water to the Club Room team whom kept us well watered in the evening!! We cannot wait to go back!

Spectacular Hotel

Entire bldg really elegant. Beautiful and functional suite. Very attentive staff. Great on-site restaurants. Only negative is location. It's mid way from old city and the new hotels on the ocean and the mall attached to the hotel is not the "Hot" mall. It was easy to visit the other malls, but if you are looking for a beach experience (we were not), then choose a different hotel. Remember, this hotel is "world class" in every way.

A week at Raffles

I taught a class for a private company at Raffles Dubai on 18-23 June 2011. Raffles provided a room for training, internet access, laptops for students and instructor, a projector, and lunch catering. There was a brief internet outage the first day, but other than that everything was perfect. I'd definitely use them again for training in Dubai. They handled all aspects of the classroom setup, including the preinstallation of software on each computer. The daily catering was very good - we simply used the hotel's buffet each day for lunch. In addition, the hotel provided snacks in the morning and the afternoon, which were very good. I stayed at the hotel as well, and the guest service was very good. Laundry service is same-day if you turn in your clothes before noon. I didn't eat at the hotel, mostly because there was so much food during the day! The suite, which was the cheapest I could get there, was both inexpensive and very nice - large, nice view, well-kept and well-maintained. I don't know whether I'd stay there if I were in Dubai on other business though, as it's a drive from the downtown area. All in all, I was very satisfied with everything.

The hotel is directly attached to the Wafi mall, which isn't the largest mall in Dubai but is still very complete.
