We visit the Jumeirah Beach Hotel already for many years. For us it is the most authentic, splendid and relaxing hotel in Dubai. When you stay here you feel like a very special guest and it makes your stay unforgettable. Service is outstanding. I would like to mention in special Ganesh one of the reception staff members who is very hospitable and helpful. He was very helpful and knowledgeable in answering and solving all our questions.
"Excellent - in every respect."
A really lovely hotel in every respect. Spacious room, with amazing views - really clean and comfortable.Breakfast caters for any taste - incredible choice and quality.The number of restaurants means you can "dine around" as much as you like - and each one we tried was amazing.We loved the Executive Pool area, and the beach is beautiful. Add to that, really friendly and efficient staff. We will revisit.
"Jumeirah Beach Hotel"
Lovely, Bright Hotel - very friendly staff, who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Got one of the refurbished rooms on the 16th floor - lovely room, great bathroom, beautiful views. Went half board - so really enjoyed the food, and especially having access to all the restaurants within the Jumeirah chain. Facilities were awesome, and Wild Wadi was a hop skip and step away. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel (budget allowing).

"Atlantis The Palm vs Jumeirah Beach"
5 days Atlantis (including NYE) + 5 days Jumeirah Beach during winter holidays ‘17/’18. Why' Determine which hotel is the best family hotel in Dubai!! ☺. We had ‘imperial club’ rooms in the Atlantis and ‘Premium leisure club’ rooms in Jumeirah Beach, which is more or less similar in service (lounge access, happy hour, etc…) In short: we had a slight preference for Jumeirah Beach, BUT, it’s not clear cut. The Atlantis was quite crowded around NYE and one could clearly feel it was hard for the staff to keep up with standards (many restaurants fully booked in advance, queues during rush hours). But nevertheless we encountered many friendly staff and the hotel is impressive (e.g. The lost chambers aquarium for which you have unlimited access with imperial club – the kids love it). Also, for the happy hour they exceptionally opened addiotnal bars for imperial club guests (e.g. Ayamna terrace). Jumeirah beach was less crowded (but this was after NYE) with very good food (but we rate the food in Atlantis at par) and an excellent service with some nice features: e.g. free water at the executive pool/beach (premium leasure club) and staff bringing free ice cream in the afternoon (this was not the case at the imperial club beach of the Atlantis; a pity). Beach and view: clearly Jumeirah is the winner; huge beach and lots of space. Waterpark: Aquaventure (Atlantis) is impressive and guessing 2x bigger than Wild Wadi, but Aquaventure gets very crowded as from noon with external guests (Atlantis guests can enter 9:45 which I strongly advice: 2 hrs of fun without cueues; as from noon: run away!). Wild Wadi is also nice and never felt too crowded, but is a bit outdated (they should do a makeover). Rooms: we got renovated rooms in both hotels (lucky'). Atlantis rooms felt slightly bigger with bigger bath rooms and an outside terrace (we were on the 2nd floor) but with beds which smeemed to lack about 20cm of width. A downside is 'Nasimi beach' which is a noisy bar until late in the evening - did bother us sometimes. Jumeirah beach rooms: very stylish makeover in ’17 (they will renovate the remaining rooms in ’18) and wide/comfortable beds; no terrace (but we never felt this was a missing feature due to the stunning view – we were on the 10th floor). Besides the great water park (Aquaventure), Atlantis also has dolphin & sea lion encounters which are a ‘must do’ for the kids. Jumeirah on the other hand has a very nice long beach which stretches alongside the other connecting Jumeirah hotels. You can also visit the other Jumeirah hotels (try the gondolas in the evening: unique atmosphere). Golf buggies will give you free transportation in both hotels. Atlantis should switch to the Jumeirah type buggies (more stylish + cant bump your head). We felt the type of guests was also different between the 2 hotels: Atlantis: “have you seen we ordered champagne on the beach'”; Jumeirah: Champagne slightly covered with a towel (but still: “we ordered champagne” - if you look close enough ☺) Food Atlantis: Ronda Locatelli: OK; BSK: excellent meat; Yuan: Best Chinese we ever had; really amazing!. But beware: Nobu & Ossiano don’t allow kids below 12yrs old (so unfortunately a ‘no go’ for us). Food Jumeirah: Veranda: OK; Latitude: good; Pai Thai: excellent (but also hard to get a spot there). Jumeirah restaurants also didn’t seem to have any restrictions re age of children and you can dine in the other (connecting) hotels which gives you a huge choice (I think 30 or 40 restaurants in total). But lots of choice in the Atlantis as well. To summarise maybe the best advice is, if you have the budget: visit both hotels ☺. Why not' Only a 15 minutes transfer between the two. PS: NYE gala dinner under the stars in the Atlantis was amazing (expensive but worth it; ‘once in a lifetime experience’). Jumeirah offers similar NYE dinners → maybe next year' :)
