Small Changes Make A Big Difference

London, United Kingdom

This was our 8th visit since 2014 to Dar Al Masyaf/Al Qasr and we still totally love the whole of the Madinet Jumeirah complex. However, we certainly noticed the differences this year, compared to previous years. This seems to coincide with a change in the management team in Madinet Jumeirah since our last visit about a year ago. There has been a significant redundancy programme in the last year, hospitality of course facing many pressures in this day and age. However we were sad that this included some of the staff we looked forward to catching-up with on our regular visits. We certainly noticed the impact of fewer buggy and abra drivers as we had to wait longer and chase for them. We also noticed security has all but disappeared in Al Qasr and heading into the Burj. We did find this quite surprising in the current political climate and, no doubt, the hotel will deny this is the case. We spent quite a lot of time in and around Al Qasr during our week’s stay and this was very noticeable for the duration. It’s a bit of a shame that small touches have been removed. Complimentary pre-dinner champagne in winter has been replaced with Cava. This is neither here nor there in the big scheme of things but it will be noticeable to regular guests and it shows a difference in the hotel’s attitude towards its guests. Another example is the removal of the really fun towel animals as part of the turn down service. Again, not a biggie, but it’s only when you add all of these little touches together that you build the special guest experience which we’ve loved so much. We noticed that, when regular guests raise these points on TripAdvisor, the hotel’s response is that their guests’ needs have changed. We feel that the priority must therefore be gaining new guests, rather than the retention of existing loyal guests. Such a shame. The staff are still brilliant. It was great to see Gopal on the buggies again - he is always so friendly, and Aswini in Kayto gave us a particularly fantastic service, as did the staff in Scape and Gold on 27 (by the way the Burj is now full of loud tour groups and so there is quite a different atmosphere in the lobby - we had to queue behind a tour group to enter the Burj for a dinner reservation!!). The whole complex is still absolutely immaculate and the cleaning team do a great job throughout. The butler team in the villas still offer a very good and helpful service. We would advise avoiding the rooms on the other side of the canal to the souk bars - they now play loud music until after 1am most days, which does become a bit of a problem if you want to turn in before then! As we were upgraded into one of these rooms we didn’t complain but, as our butler said when we mentioned it at the end, they would have moved us if we had. Overall we do still love Dar Al Masyaf and the Madinet Jumeirah. Whether we return will depend on whether the changes are indicative of a general change in attitude towards guests in Dubai, or whether it’s more specific to this hotel complex.

Amazing resort

Sydney, Australia

Would love to have stayed longer and want to go back. We were near the beach and loved the canal system and boats. We had a meal package and enjoyed all meals and going between the resorts to eat and drink.
