Mina A Salam Madinat Jumeirah

Madinat Jumeirah is one the most beautiful hotel in Dubai, and probably in UAE. Look at this picture - it is really gorgeous...
Here is couple of recent feedbacks from TripAdvisor:
It's fabulous and is everything others have said. Large comfortable rooms, great bathrooms, great views and friendly staff with transport to other Jumeira hotels by boat or buggy.The only thing all this luxury comes at at great cost, especially the food and drinks, allow at least £200 per day per couple and thats a minimum...

Another one:
I've got to say that this was one of the best, if not best hotels i have ever stayed at, we went from the Jumeirah beach Hotel, to the Madinat Jumeirah and then the Mina A Salaam. My 3 year old daughter enjoyed it so much that I had to book in a few extra days. You get free access to the Wild Wadi Park if you stay at either the Jumeirah beach Hotel, Madinat or the Mina Salaam, the view from the balcony was beautiful and the staff made an extra effort to entertain my daughter by creating animals from the bath sheets and leaving them on the bed, something they learn at a course they are sent to. There are loads of restaurants on the hotel grounds, and you can be ferried around by guys driving buggies around the resort. you can also take little boats which take you around the resort....This is all free if you are staying at the hotel. If you are doing research and want to choose a hotel, then just to let you know, this resort has approx 3 hotels in them, Mina A Salaam, Madinat Jumeirah & Dar Al Masyaf and the little boats and buggies take you from one to the other.

Ann another GOOD review:

As people have felt the need to write bad reviews from a year ago I thought I'd add my year old GOOD review. My husband and I had such a good time at MAS last year that we are returning in two weeks time (at which point I'll probably write another review). It has to be the best holiday we have ever been on (except our honeymoon). I find it so hard to believe that people felt the staff were unfriendly. Everywhere we went from check in to the pool to the restaurants to the bars - all the staff were more than happy to help us. My husband tried to go to the bar to get a drink at the pool and was sent back to the sun loungers because they didn't want us to do anything ourselves. We didn't feel the need to tip at all. I may have picked up towels one day by myself but that really doesn't bother me! We were in an Executive Club Room but the only time staff would have known this was during check in and when we used the club room in the morning at breakfast and evening for drinks. The Arbas are great fun. We have booked a restaurant in another part of the hotel on the first night of our up coming trip just so we have an excuse to use them straight away. The only very slight annoyance was we decided to go half board but felt this didn't give us a lot of options and didn't feel brilliant value for money. We are only going B&B this time. One tip - pre book your restaurants because they get fully booked very quickly. We were unable to get reservations for a lot of the restaurants we wanted last year. We have already made reservations this year and we go on 14th November.
