Hotel's Favourite
Let me start by saying - I have stayed in so many hotels but Raffles Dubai is by far the BEST in CUSTOMER SERVICE. Even before we arrived in Dubai, Raffles has been so helpful in arranging our tours, and coordinated my choice of room in Dubai. I have selected to bein the Club floor and specifically asked for a high floor and a great view. Raffles certainly delivered that. On our first night, we arrived a bit later but Queenie from the from desk arranged so that we still got our afternoon dessert and drinks. It was delicately prepared and quite delicious. The room was perfect for my husband and myself. It smelled so clean ("fresh") and when you open the door the curtains automatically also opens to show you the best view of the city. Our package includes breakfast and oh boy their selection of breakfast was so overwhelming. We tried almost everything on the breakfast menu and everything was excellent. Of course, my favorite was my cappuccino. They made it with a Raffles logo on top. Our package also includes the afternoon tea. We were only able to enjoy this once because we were always out and about. Great selections of desserts. We also used their pool. I was surprised that there were not many guests enjoying the pool. The pool was super clean. Reminds of Caesar Palace in Las Vegas, NV USA. Very relaxing. However in Raffles, you don't have to pay to get a nice lounge chair as opposed to Vegas where you will have to pay for a cabana to enjoy the same. The lifeguard and the staff by the pool were also very courteous. I have so many great things to say about Raffles. But one more to wrap this up is that Raffles accommodated our late check out which was so helpful. Thank you Raffles for making us feel special. You made our first trip to Dubai memorable. Thank you Winston, Queenie, Nelson, and everyone whose name I can't remember for making our stay so LOVELY.

My wife and I travel regularly and we both agree that our stay at The Raffles Dubai was probably our best hotel experience ever. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. A big thank you to the concierge staff: Henry, Steven, and Remon. Special mention to Mr. Henry Mugenda who went out of his way to get us discounted tee times at both the Emirates Golf Club and the Jumeirah Golf Estates. He also helped us with restaurant reservations and provided very helpful information for travelling through the UAE in the time of Covid. This hotel also went out of its way to make sure we had everything they had advertised to the point of overfeeding us... from the daily breakfast, to afternoon tea, to evening cocktails. Many thanks to the staff at The Solo Restaurant and the Raffles Salon including: Girgis, Woulstain, Claudio, Mars, Sofia, and Summer. Last but not the least, to our floor butlers Syed and Bashia for making sure we had everything we needed and for checking in on us almost as soon as we returned to the hotel at the end of our day. As you can probably tell, we got to know a lot of the staff and they all made us feel like we were home. Well done Raffles Dubai Team!

We had a wonderful staycation to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The staff could not do enough to ensure our stay was memorable. A beautiful cake, card and balloons were delivered to our room which really made it special. We ate at Solo restaurant and as an Italo/English family the Italian food was delicious and very authentic. Again the staff were so friendly and helpful, likewise service by the pool was impeccable. We will definitely return. Thank you
