Neighborhood
The Sofitel at Jumeirah Beach is located on a small island nestled in between the trendy Dubai Marina and the breathtaking Persian Gulf. The Marina Beach, a hugely impressive public beach, is located just a few steps away from the hotel entrance. It's nearly impossible to vacation in Dubai and not go shopping, so take a walk to Dubai Marina Mall and splurge on gifts for all. Just behind the hotel, guests can explore the man-made lakes of Jumeirah Islands - despite being designed as a housing complex, the development is still a marvel. If you're traveling with children, the nearby Jumeirah Lakes Park is a great place to explore, and nearly 600,000-square-feet of space are more than enough to keep the little ones occupied.
Hints and Tips
Make use of the Sofitel Jumeirah Beach complimentary shuttle buses to all of the major shopping centers for some retail therapy in Dubai.

The hotel can provide an up-to-date timetable on shuttle services.

Very nice hotel!

This hotel was pretty much what you'd expect from a Sofitel. Excellent rooms, very comfortable bed. Only slight downside for me was the pool area. It was quite small and cramped. The pool itself was very nice but also quite small. Not really what I expected at a resort style hotel. This didn't take away from our stay however.

Leisure / family visit

Really love this hotel great location with so many places to visit on your door step. Also a truly beachy hotel with access to the beach literally over JBR. Dubai Marina mall only a 10-15 min stroll away. I stayed on 29th floor which had amazing views of Dubai Marina at the back and the ocean and all the bars and shops at the front. Excellent dining facilities and in room service - great gym and steam sauna facilities with a good sized roof top (3rd floor) infinity pool again over looking JBR and the ocean. Worthy of its 5 star rating this one!

Sofitel Jumeirah Beach

A fantastic hotel in the heart of Jumeirah Beach, located between the beach and the marina. Lovely spacious rooms featuring bathrooms with a twist. One fun - it can open out into the bedroom allowing easy conversation if one person wants to have a relaxing soak. The other is the toilet. There isn't a lot of room to move. That said, the hotel room is fab, the outdoor bar area too. A great location along the main holiday strip with easy access to great restaurants, shops, the beach, marina, tourist buses and train. Would highly recommend.

Gorgeous hotel, lovely staff... would definitely go back

Had a great stay in the Sofitel, would highly recommend. The staff were all really nice and friendly. We stayed in the Sofitel for 7 nights in Sept 2013.The room was really big, lots of wardrobe space, desk area, balcony, safe & minibar(not free). The bathroom too was a great size with a door beside the bath so you could watch the tv while having a soak. The shower & toilet each had there own doors as well. In front of the hotel there is construction going on, but this is Dubai, and construction seems to be everywhere. But even though the construction work seems to be 24/7 we didn't hear a thing from our room. With the construction it means that the nearest entrance to the beach is near the Hilton but the hotel has a golf buggy to pick you up & collect you, or its a 10 mins walk in the heat. You can get reasonably priced bar food in the Hub & if you order the cocktail/spirit/beer of month they are half price. I got Mojitos for about €5. Cocktails normally around €10. There is lots of lovely restaurants next to the hotel along "the walk". Drinks in the Hilton just down from the hotel in the sky bar has an amazing view, I'm surprised Sofitel doesn't have a similar rooftop bar. The infinity pool was lovely where they provided towels & bar service. Also after checkout they kept our bags in a locker room for us as our flight was late that night. On return to collect the baggage they asked if we wanted to use the spa & get showers. An absolutely lovely touch. One bad thing was that traffic around "the walk", can be quite bad at times....

Great service

Fantastic hotel: Great facilities, excellent restaurant (their breakfast buffet is outstanding), superb service. Unfortunately, the location was not great for sight-seeing (Jumeirah Beach is a bit far from everything, and taxis in Dubai are not cheap). Also, with the construction of a new mall right in front of the hotel, its ocean views are likely to be compromised (and the access to the beach will be even less convenient).

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a metro station within a reasonable walking distance from the hotel. You don't need to take a cab everywhere.
