My husband decided to surprise me and take me away for our 1st wedding anniversary so he took me to Dubai and booked an executive suite at Mina A Salam.
When I saw the hotel I thought it was absolutely beautiful but when I got to the suite I was amazed. It was very spacious, clean, stylish and very comfortable.
The view from our room was stunning.
The staff was very friendly and useful.
I had a great time and we will definitely go back there. Well, if I had the money I would go back there even today. ;0)
I definitely recommend this hotel.
''Simply the best'' I mean both the hotel and my husband of course.

My wife and I are just back after spending 5 nights here at the end of our honeymoon. So glad it was the last leg of our trip as anywhere else after this would have been a disappointment.
Service is amazing and the choice of amenities, i.e., restaurants/bars/pools/beach/Souk and complimentary access to Wild Wadi meant we didn't even leave the complex (Madinat Jumeirah, incorporating Al Qasr and Souk also) for the first three days. In fact you could happily spend your entire holiday within the resort.
Food was amazing - recommend Al Hambra Spanish restaurant (great food/live music), Zheng He's Chinese and MJ's steakhouse (try the Wyagu fillet steak - pricey but worth every cent).
Some decent bars too, with a great selection of cocktails and/or beers. Can be a little pricey but not much more than what we're used to paying back home and when you consider the service & quality of what you get it actually represents good value.
The water-taixs that ferry you around to the different places in the resort are a lovely touch and not to be missed, in fact it seems many tourists visit the resort just to experience this. Reminded me of the Venetian in Vegas only on a grander scale and without the tack.
The great thing about the whole place is that although 5-star if never feels stuffy/pretentious, while maintaining impeccable standards.
Only fault was that after arriving in the early hours we were kept waiting for our room for 6 hours, but there are plenty of places to relax/shower while you're waiting.
All in all, a perfect end to our honeymoon and we will DEFINITELY be returning!

My husband, 2 year old daughter and I have just come back from a 10 night stay at the Mina a salam. This is our 2nd stay here and we were once again not disappointed. We were at the Mina last September (07) and loved it so much we just had to go back!

On arrival we were upgraded to an ocean view room and there was a basket of goodies waiting for my daughter which was a fantastic touch.

The pool and beaches were fantastic and the complimentary Wild Wadi access was a good bonus. Free Ice Lollies and fruit kebabs were provided at the poolside and there were never any shortages of sun longers dsepite the hotels in the complex being fully booked.

Our daughter was constantly fussed over by the staff who even took her to feed the fish and turtles whilst we had our breakfast! would definately reccomend this hotel to parents travelling with young children.

We tried Shimmers restaurant and the Meat Co and they were both really good.

Would reccomend the nail bar in the Madinat Souk to the ladies - their manicures and pedicures are very well priced. My daughter was given complimentary nail painting and loved it!

We will definately be going back again next year!

Absolutely mindblowing!My wife and I stayed at this magnificent hotel on the first stage of our honeymoon.We booked through Destinology (ok-but mixed up our board bookings!),and on arrival got whisked through customs to our awaiting Mercedes (would have preferred the Audi).On arrival at Mina A Salam,we were greeted by the club executive staff and despite our very early arrival only had to wait half an hour for our Club Executive Suite.The room was huge,with fantastic views of the Burj.It had nearly everything you could want,and the bathroom was a room in itself, and was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was lovely and housed in the club exec lounge with free internet access. The choice of restaurants is fantastic with over 30 within the Madinat Jumeirah resort,i recommend the steak house and the Zheng He's the chinese restaurant.
The only let down was only staying 3nights and also the small swimming pool. it is slightly on the expensive side too, but let me assure you its worth every penny! The staff were also extremely attentive and remembered your name.
We cant wait to go back!!!!!!!
