We have just spent a few nights here as part of a trip we had planned. We could not fault any part of the hotel, the staff were even better they could not do enough for us, Arun made sure our room was spotless everyday and made sure we had everything we needed.
This was the same all over Dubai everyone went out of their way to assist in any way they could. If you smoke that's not a problem, there are bins with ashtrays everywhere. Just stand by the bin if you want to smoke.
We spent last week at the Delta Hotel by Marriott at JBR Dubai. This was a lovely hotel, where we had a spacious 3 bed suite.
Located near the Marina, it was close to the beach, shops, restaurants, metro, tram, etc.
The staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful too.
We ate in the Shores restaurant in the hotel every day, for both breakfast and dinner. The food was excellent.
We would like to specially mention the chef Vaishak and the waiter Amir - they were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us. If we wanted anything special, no problem - and they brought us out ice creams every evening !!They made us feel very special.
We would definitely come back.
We travelled as a family of 4, me my husband and 2 kids aged 10 and 4. We were made to feel welcome right from the moment we arrived. My youngest daughter was treated like a princess by all the staff.
The hotel is literally 5 min walk from the beach, 5-10min walk to marina mall, 15min walk to nearest metro station (which by the way is so simple to use and extremely cheap)
There is a 24 hour shop next door, a Starbucks straight across. On the beach front you have a huge choice of restaurants. You couldn't ask for a better location.
We paid for half board, the food was nice. Always something to choose from for us and the kids. We did find breakfast time was very busy, if you didn't get there before 8.30am you could be waiting a while to be seated however we always got seated and still had plenty of choice when we did. Evening meal wasn't as busy and food varied daily, wasn't overly exciting food but was good enough. The dining staff were so friendly. As soon as we walked in they all made a fuss of the children, made them feel extra special. One in particular was Amir. He was amazing with my youngest and she still talks about her friend that she made. The chefs Vaishakh and Reginald were great too, made a point of introducing themselves to us and making a fuss of the children.
When we arrived we found the superior king room we had booked only had a king-size bed and nowhere for the children to sleep even though we had booked it for a family of 4. After pointing this out it was quickly rectified by staff setting up another bed in the room. It was very spacious and clean. W eonly really used the room as a base as we were out exploring most of the day so it was perfect for us. We were on the 7th floor but still had a pretty good view of the sea through the other hotels.
The lifts were the biggest nightmare, especially at breakfast time. With everybody trying to get down to breakfast we often found the lift either skipped our floor or when it did stop it was too full so this quickly became annoying.
Whilst we were there it was Halloween, outside the hotel they had set up a large screen for the kids to watch a movie. This was all great but they played the movie until after 11pm and our window over looked it, with the volume quite high our youngest did struggle with getting to sleep. Also we had trick or treaters knocking on the hotel door late at night. I've never stayed in a hotel where this is allowed to happen so was very shocked to open the door to young children at around 11pm.
I would recommend the hotel and would certainly stay here again if we were to visit Dubai again.
My partner and I had a wonderful 5 night stay at Delta by Marriott JBR in October 2019.
We checked in very early after a long flight, feeling exhausted. Check in was very friendly and efficient. We were given a complimentary upgrade to a 2 bedroom suite on floor 6, which was an incredible hotel room, enough space for a family of 4 at the very least! The beds were insanely comfortable (we were deep in sleep the moment our heads hit the pillow each night) and there was a great view overlooking the marina from our bedroom. The only small improvement we felt could be made would be an upgrade to the bathrooms as they were slightly dated. The daily room service was excellent.
As part of our booking we had free access to the executive lounge which included complimentary drinks every day 6.30-8.30pm. I’d like to give a special mention to Roma (I hope I’ve remembered her name right!) she was brilliant - so professional and friendly and made us feel so welcome when there were some confusion with our room number being on the list.
The breakfast was amazing - we were extremely impressed with both the food and the service. It was buffet style but also someone cooking omelettes upon request. There was a very long queue on our first day so just be aware if you head down at a popular time you may be waiting a long time. This also applies with the hotel lifts - there are 4 in total but we were often waiting a long time for one to arrive, wasn’t a major issue just something worth mentioning.
The location of the hotel is great - a 10 minute walk from the marina mall and JBR beach and a short taxi ride to everywhere else. We didn’t ever make use of the hotel pool but by taking a look don’t think we missed out on much.
Overall we had a wonderful stay at this hotel which was made really special by all the incredibly friendly and professional staff, every single one of them went the extra mile for us. We wouldn’t hesitate recommending this hotel to anyone and will certainly be booking again when we return to Dubai!
We have just returned from our stay at Delta by Marriott Jumeriah Beach, Dubai. We had an absolutely amazing time.
All the staff in the hotel are really polite & helpful, especially the lady who greets you at breakfast & the guys who are outside the hotel reception arranging taxis. We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was really spacious & kept very clean every day by a lovely young lad who could not do enough to help us.
Hope to return next year!
