Historical Traveller Reviews of The Ritz Carlton Dubai Hotel
Shame about the cigarettes!from holly267
The building works behind the hotel are noisy, unsightly and cause traffic problems but once inside the hotel or the rooms you shouldn't be bothered, all rooms are sea-facing so you never have to look out onto a construction site!
Now to a large moan! Virtually every visit we have been bothered by the smell of cigarette smoke coming into our room via the air-conditioning unit. Our worst time is in the early hours of the morning when we have been woken up by the stench. Clearly people smoke at all hours and this drifts through the air-con units. The hotel does not provide non-smoking floors. If you request a non-smoking room, you will get a room at the far end of a corridor, next to a smoking room, hence the problem! And we found it a very big problem, probably stopping us from returning!
Ritz-Carlton - a little gem in a concrete jungle!from SineadDublin_Ireland

An oasis in a construction desertfrom serendipit4
So, what is the attraction of staying at Ritz Carlton at present? Well, the service as always at the RC is absolutely impeccable. 2 specific examples spring to mind, Indri, one of the concirges, went into town in her own time and with her own money to purchase another memory stick, to download my photos. Mizannur, one of the housekeeping attendants found a lost diamond earring. The hotel has beautifully maintained gardens and fine pools. You leave the RC with an absolute feel good factor. RC Dubai is one seriously managed hotel. The staff are second to none.
The Club lounge is an excellent deal, although this one has a children's room attached to it, which can make for a less than sophisticated and irritating atmosphere when knocking back the champagne and vodka cocktails! On the plus side it is VERY child friendly.
Our room was pleasant but slightly uninteresting, not the best RC we have stayed in.
We went onto the Burj Al Arab for our final 2 days which better encapsulates the whole Dubai materialistic thrill of the new.
RC will always be our favourite hotel group but stay at the Burj if you can.
very happy customerfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Dubai in general is in the midst of a massive construction program and as a result is not the best place to go if you want tropical picture postcard beauty, even the beach is not the most stunning I have seen.
Having said that the areas that are finished around the city are very pretty and immaculatley clean.
We stayed in a club room and must say it is more than worth the small extra cost as you get excellent snacky food and unlimited drinks all day in the exclusive club lounge, otherwise alcohol is very expensive everywhere in Dubai.
All the staff at this hotel are a credit to the Ritz Carlton group as they carried out their duties to the highest standards I think I have ever had the pleasure of and allways with a huge smile on their face (chambermaids, gardeners, decorators, pool staff - absolutley everybody).
We has some friends who were staying at the Royal Meridien next door and they came to our hotel for the evening for a fantastic meal at the Splendido restaurant. They were full of enthusiasm for their hotel but when they left us they said that the Ritz Carlton was in a different class.
Yes this hotel is in the middle of a building site (but then again the vast majority of the others are too) but when you are in it and in rooms that all face the sea, laying by the lovely pool that faces the sea you soon forget that (just do not look back at the hotel and you will be fine).
If you do not go you will be missing out on a truly amazing experience.

What a disappointmentfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The room that we were in was at the far corner of the hotel , we had at least a 6 minute walk to reception each time we wanted to go out. Very tired looking hotel . Thank goodness we only booked one night.
a great view of constructionfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I found the rooms to be tired and dull, and the reception and other areas to be a bit lifeless. I really wouldnt reccomend this hotel unless one was getting a great deal
This is a splnedid hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
It is unfortunate that a review has been left of this hotel by a person who did not stay in the hotel, and I have written this to correct any misunderstanding his review may cause to anyone thinking of booking a room here. None of the bedrooms are anything other than sea facing at the Ritz Carlton and one cannot see any of the constuction work going on behind the hotel whilst enjoying the beach, pool etc. Yes there is a vast amount of construction going on behind the hotel (and in Dubai as a whole) that one sees when driving to approach the hotel, but did it affect our enjoyment of this superb hotel? Not one bit.
A warning about the contruction going on.from 6andy6
Top Local Tips for Dubai
Shopping Malls Dont bother, you may as well not bother going on holiday if you are going to visit these
Viator We used Viator.com for transportation services to and from the airport. The drivers were waiting for us when we arrived and got us back on time. The company also met us after we checked in to our hotel and we booked our Desert Safari through them as well.
Construction Don't let the reviews on all the building work put you off visiting this beautiful place. Watching the work being done on the surrounding area is actually extremely interesting. Once inside the hotel you can't see or hear anything of the building work going on outside anyway, it really is not an issue to your holiday.
