WOW

This is the only word to describe this hotel.
Arrived at 9am in the morning after a delayed flight, but could change, shower etc in the gym, by the time we did this our room was ready.

Huge bed, full mini bar, phone in the toilet, the room was beautiful with a lovely view of the Burj!!

no need to take towels, all provided ast the hote and if you go water park, free there aswell
luxry shampoo, soap, flannles etc all provided in the rooma and fresh fruit bowel as well as water everyday and night.

HINT:- no need to take travel adapter as they uses 240v plug and they are all Uk 3pin
PLUS:- iron , ironing board, excellent hairdryer,slippers and bathrobes all provided in standard room.

Bit of advice- book the restaurants, we struggled to get a meal on the 1st night , but the chinese got us a table at 9.30 pm which suited us ok.

Went to 'Verre'- Gordan Ramseys restaurant in the Hilton Dubai Creek Hotel, Mina concierge booked it for us and it is well worth a visit. 7 courses later, bottle of wine liquer coffee and 2 bottles of Water for £150 , very worth the money and the experience of world class food.

Mj's steak restaurant in the Qsar also worth a visit, service beyond your imagination and the food was devine!!

Sundown safari was excellent, We pre booked this in England with Thomson and got a better deal than the operator at the hotel. 2hours of driving in sandunes- belly dancing, barbecue, henna tattoos, and camel rides,brilliant.

breakfasts were great, ranging from freshly cooked made to order omelettes form the chef to cereals, fresh fruit, breads, cooked breakfast, moked salmon- you name it , it was available.

the hotel staff were friendly and provided a service second to non, good security and extremely clean.

wanted to stay longer than a week

only down side was the trip home, Dubai airport check in is like a circus, no queing system or order so be patient, took us over1 hour to get our bags in and get through passport control even though our flight home was only half full.


can't wait to o next year but want longer than a week and want to upgrade!! be well worth the money!

Absolutely Fabulous!!!
We stayed in a club executive room which was well worth the extra money. The room itself was massive with a lovely balcony overlooking the Burj al Arab. The staff were really helpful and the room rate included breakfast, afternoon tea and drinks and canapes before dinner (there was so much we didn't need to buy food t all!) The hotel bars were not extortionate and the beach and pool area was lovely. We were met at the airport and driven to the hotel in a limo which also took us back at the end of the stay.
The best hotel we have ever stayed in.

We were really looking forward to our first visit to Dubai and after spending the first 5 nights at the Al Maha Desert resort we were in 'seventh heaven', not really wanting to leave for our next 6 nights at the Mina, but reassured by all the nice things we read on Trip Advisor.
Arriving at the Mina was a big shock to the system, it was huge, and both my husband and I are not massive fans of large complexes. Sympathetically designed in Arabian style it still had that Disney feel to it!
We checked in and were whisked to our room overlooking the gulf - a nice room with a bed that was the most comfortable I have ever slept in.
Breakfast was a busy affair, felt a bit "Butlins", although the choice was vast, the service was not particularly 5 star!
We usually holiday in private villas as we like the choice to do what we want when we want, but as it was my 40th this was a special holiday. We hated the fact you had to decide what you wanted to eat at night in the morning, so you could book a restaurant, it took all the spontaneity away from evening dining. If fact the best meal we had was when we had not booked and ended up in the Chinese restaurant at the Mina as we could not get in to any other restaurant - best Chinese meal I have ever had!
The restaurants around the resort were quite expensive and some were disappointing. Each time we asked for a non smoking table we were always plonked right next to the smoking area. In one restaurant where they serve steaks a £70 a go, we saw the chef drop food on the floor, wipe it on his trousers and put it on the plate - 5 star - I think not!
The Qasr which was the next hotel in complex seemed nicer and we used their pool as we found the Mina pool a bit small and cramped. The cocktail bar at the Qasr was also better and had a wonderful view at night on the terrace across to the Burj.
The service overall was good, but its what you expect in a 5 star hotel.
All in all, we understand why people enjoy the Mina, but for us, pure heaven in Dubai was the Al Maha, and when we go back to Dubai we will definately seek out a smaller 5 star hotel when staying in the city.

We stayed at this hotel for the second part of our honeymoon and although we were only staying for 3 days it was the highlight of our trip.

Everything about this hotel is quality from the minute you walk into the foyer to the moment you check out. The hotel has a very traditional arabic look and feel which only added to our experience in Dubai.

The staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient and as we arrived at 6am they made an early check in for us which was a life saver!

As it was our honeymoon there were some nice extra touches - the free champagne on ice, the strawberries with chocolate dip, the rose petals on the bed and the swans made out of towels (much more impressive than it sounds!).

There is no reason to really leave the Madinat complex as the choice of shops/bars/restaurants is second to none, and the hotel facilities such as the private beach, pools, etc are all exceptional.

Our only regrets are that we did not manage to go to Wild Wadi and didn't manage to use the Spa.

We did go to the Burj Al Arab for afternoon tea in the skyview bar however, and in comparison to the Mina A Salam, it was tacky, overpriced, poor service and would have been better suited to Blackpool than Dubai. Our advice is take pictures from the outside but don't waste the time and money to go inside, it is a huge disappointment - they have a cheek to call it 7 star.

In summary, we wish would could have spent longer here and will definitely go back to this hotel. Our travel agent could not have recommended a better place in our view.

This is the best hotel we have ever stayed in by a long, long way!

It is a large hotel granted, and that does put some people off, but we loved that it offered so much to do. Staff are all first class, they think of everything (even turning the hoover off as you walk by in the coridors!)

The attention to detail, food (46 restaurants and bars in the complex all with 1st class food), exculsivity, service, facilities all standout. This is like DisneyWorld for adults, but done with a touch of Dubai 6 star magic. It is a much better hotel than the sister hotel (Burj al Arab) and you can use all Burj facilities anyway by staying here!!
