The JA Ocean View Hotel Dubai is a hotel that really has it all. With a fabulous location it is ideal for beach lovers, shoppers and the foodies with plenty of restaurants within the easily navigated area. If it’s your first time to Dubai and you have been procrastinating about location, then you will not be disappointed with the choice here. But enough about it’s great location, it’s within the hotel itself that you will find everything that makes your holiday experience an excellent one. With great and varied facilities, the JA Ocean View Hotel Dubai is a superb choice for families, couples and the business traveller.
I always take great care in selecting and recommending a hotel and this one ticked all my boxes and indeed I had a wonderful stay. As a comparison, I also stayed in two other hotels in Dubai and the JA Ocean View Hotel is miles ahead on knowing what the consumer wants. It has the right touch of luxury that leaves guests impressed but importantly doesn’t burn a hole in your hip pocket.
The JA Ocean View Hotel Dubai
I arrived at the JA Ocean View Hotel just after midnight and the check in was a smooth process. There was no waiting around (maybe because it was midnight after all) and the staff were great and very affable. After a quick and concise run down on what was on offer at the hotel and I’ll add here that it was quick because I was exhausted from a long haul flight from Australia and bed was the only thing on my mind. There was plenty of time in the morning to ask any questions and I was armed with hotel information pamphlets in the meantime. Once up to my room, my luggage followed promptly and I jumped straight into the king size bed and was blissfully off to sleep in no time at all.
I stayed in an executive room on the 23rd floor, which was spacious and had a great view over “The Palm Jumeirah”, the public beach and the shopping area below. The bed was super comfy, the room was well appointed and the decor was stylish, fresh and clean. It’s the kind of room that you don’t mind hanging out in rather than just a place to simply rest your head.
