Holiday Inn Downtown: Deira

unless you need to go to the airport early and cannot risk getting caught in a traffic jam; never stay in Deira, it is just too 'blue collar' as such. Bur Dubai is the place to stay or out near the beach.

The Holiday Inn was decent as it is 'low seasonin Dubai and not vastly over-priced at this time

I liked the pool and the room for the most part but the breakfast sucked.

Le Royal Meridien Dubai beach & spa: Delightful days in the sun

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times all together.
The hotel has three buildings, the club, the main building & the Royal tower.
I have been in the Royal Tower for all my stays and this is highly recommendable.
The Royal tower offers butler service 24/7, and they even supply you with a complimentary bottle of wine every night.
The rooms all have sea view, and on "clear" days you are able to see the Jumeriah Pallm

Golden Sands Hotel Apartments: Good Cheap Clean Safe!

It can be more geared for long-term stays, but just as convenient for short-term stays. Golden Sands was great. Nice location and easy access to main thorough fares. Internet slow but free in the lobby. Front desk staff a bit surely, but so was I to be fair. (Jetlag and ALL that excitement from Kuwait, I suspect....) Still, I'd stay there again and recommend it to others. It was $75 a night and I booked it with www.booking.com

Had so many features we didn't need for a transient (one night) sleep. Would have been a delight to have needed some of them however: pool, restaurants. And in the room: fridge, washer/dryer and dishwasher. Two twin beds and a pull out couch, too! It rocked!

If you do stay here, BIG warning: There are 10+ Golden Sands Apartment buildings. Each is numbered and you can see them as you drive around them in your Expensive Cab with the meter a ticking....

Unlike US... be sure you know WHICH building you will be placed in. We were in Building Three, even though booking.com itinerary said Mankhool street. Building Three was NOT on Mankhool Street.

Or LIKE US... you'll be, not happy... and eventually ditch the cab and start walking, one by one to each building.

And it's hot, dark, you are tired, cranky and ... not happy.

We finally found it, but I know we paid a good $10 more in cab fare and ended up ditching the cab anyway.

El Ain Rotana: Perfect resort

Excellent facilities, spacious rooms, very friendly staff giving you the five-star treatment at (almost) budget prices. (I booked thru internet and paid in November 2006 less than USD 100 for a double room.)

Good breakfast buffet. Excellent Japanese steak at their Trader Vic's restaurant. There are some things to do in El-Ain (and I don't mean shopping because that you can better do in Dubai) and it's on the border of Oman, allowing for an excursion.

The Sandy Beach Hotel and Resort

Located about 30 minutes north of Fujairah, and one and a half hours from Dubai, the Sandy Beach Hotel and Resort mainly caters to divers who enjoy their hobby at the Sandy Beach Diving Centre. (See my "Sports Travel" tip for more information).

The hotel features one- and two-bedroom chalets, one-bedroom bungalows, and double and twin hotel rooms. All rooms contain a private bathroom and satellite television, and the chalets also contain a kitchenette and sitting room.

The Sandy Beach Hotel and Resort is situated on a private beach on the east coast of the United Arab Emirates, where guests can sunbathe, swim, snorkel, or scuba dive. Guests can also use the temperature-controlled swimming pool, participate in various water sports, or take boating, fishing, and sightseeing tours.

The hotel's restaurant features seafood and Arabic and Continental cuisine, and the poolside bar is a good place to enjoy a cold drink after diving (or birdwatching) all day.

The Ain Al Fayda Hotel

Nestled at the foot of Jebel Hafit, the second-tallest mountain in the United Arab Emirates, the Ain Al Fayda Hotel is located outside of Al Ain in Abu Dhabi emirate. The hotel is operated by the Abu Dhabi National Hotels Company.

This was one of three hotels I stayed in during my trip to the United Arab Emirates. And because it is run by the government, it was the most run-down and shabby. However, my room was adequate, the food served in the restaurant was very good, and the green and cool gardens in which it is located were a welcome change from the desert.

The hotel is part of a resort town which also contains chalets, a restaurant, a coffee shop where patrons can try traditional Arabic coffee and smoke a hookah, a recreation center with a pool and bowling alley, and a pizzeria.

Dar Almasyef: Abra in Dar Almasyef

there are no receptions in this hotel, once you pass the Colgate girls they will take you to the abra and directly to your Villa where you have your personal buttler waiting for you. they only thing i dont like about the abra is the long waiting time you sometimes have to spend until one of those boats come to you.

Le Meridian Hotel: Beach Resort

I wasn't at the hotel much, but while I was there, it had a nice bar by the beach to sit and relax at. Also the room had a nice view of the beach.

Ramada Hotel: Good clean hotel

The hotel was a little expensive, but worth the price. It was a clean room with two beds and a balcony. It also came with a mini bar, which I have a bad habit of trying to empty it before I go out at night.

There is a nice English bar in the hotel. Good for stopping at to shoot some pool, play some darts, or just to have a beer and figure out what your plans are for the night. At 9:00PM the hotel's club "Rumors" opens as well.
