A little oasis in the desert
Went with my hubby and our little one who just turned one. We were looking for a nice relaxing holiday in which add always for us privacy is the key. We had the one bed villa with pool which was more like an apartment as had a sperate dining area with TV lounge and a kitchen which would put most of London flats kitchens to shame. We spent a week at the resort and hardly went to the beach as the villa pool was sufficient for us and convenient with a one year old. My little one had the best time as she could run around and explore and we were not worried about looking after her constantly as we were in our own space. The spa was excellent and my husband and I made good use out of it. The inroom dining was excellent as they setup the whole table for you just like in a restaurant and due to the convenience factor we ended up staying in our villa most of the nights. The bbq option was excellent which we chose for our last night to make things more special. Highly recommended resort especially if you have little ones as everthing is so easily available from a baby bottle sterliser to a warmer.
Amazing oberoi stay, the oberoi way
This is our fourth stay at different oberoi hotels. We came to UAE for winter sun and when we realised that there was an Oberoi in Ajman we didn’t hesitate to book it based on our previous experiences at other oberoi hotels. Location: Along an amazing stretch of private sandy beach in the middle of a nature reserve, a perfect location for relaxing and doing nothing. It is so quiet here. If you want to hear the birds chirp and listen to waves this is the place. Staff: Oberoi staff and service are above any other hotel brand in this world. They pre-empt what you want before you ask for it. I would have personally thanked everyone if I had the opportunity, however, I will mention a few names: Housekeeping staff: Ismaya (got a creative side to him). My daughter loves animals and he use to make amazing animal shapes from towels. My daughter loved them. Restaurant: Tarik, Asel, Gautam, Ancel, Zhumanali, Chefs Devendra, Dhawal and all chefs from Aquario restaurant. Pool staff: Dhanuk, Isuru, Benjamin In Room service: Monica, Zharnakai Kids Club: Marialle. She was so creative and so good that I could hire her as my Au Pair. We are carrying half a suitcase worth of her creative art that she did with my daughter. Mr. General Manager, let me know when her contract with Oberoi is over. Food: Exquisite. We have never had a bad meal in any of our oberoi stays. The fresh breads that the chefs make every day are special, they can give the French a run for their money in breadmaking. The chefs pride themselves in only serving the best food that you won’t go wrong with ordering anything from the menu. The aquario restaurant deserves a special mention for the seafood selection. Pool: Warm, clean and long. Beach: Soft sand, comfortable sun loungers and lots of shells to go search for. Pool and Beach service: Spot on. I love their lemon and mint lollies (tastes like frozen non-alcoholic mojito) that they bring to your lounger regularly. Housekeeping: Twice a day, with attention to detail. I have already mentioned the creativity of the staff previously. The review will be incomplete without recommendations: Restaurant: Here is the challenge for the amazing chefs. Have an item in your menu which says "tell us what you want and we will make it for you". This will get the creative juices of both the clients and the chefs going. I tried this method at every breakfast meal and the output every time was exceptional. Kids play area: With such a long private sandy beach, there could easily be a thoughtfully designed play area for the kids. Kids club: A splash zone / kids activity pool is missing with indoor or shaded play area with swings and slides. Kids Buffet: The restaurants open at 7pm. The restaurants could open early say 5:30pm with a kids buffet till 7pm. Small kids like options to pick from rather than a menu from a la carte. Aesthetics: Architecturally a lovely hotel. Some of the finishing touches could be better. For example, dubai had torrential rains on the day we arrived and the water leaked into our suite. I appreciate that it was unusual weather for dubai but water leaking isn’t acceptable as it’s a health and safety issue with tiles/marble flooring. Reception: Not sure why black tiles have been chosen for the water feature in the reception. The water features looks like it has got dirty water. I believe lighter coloured tiles can considerably enhance the water feature. Ps: Mr. General Manager, I forgot to mention ZhumanAli’s name in the feedback form to the CEO. Could I please ask you to mention him too? He was excellent and would be unfair on me to not mentioned him.
Amazing hotel well deserved 5 star because the staff make a difference
We are on our last day of our vacation and sad to leave this wonderful hotel The quality of the accommodation and facilities are first class. It is set on a lovely well cared for beach and the gardens are also beautiful. The food in the Vinesse and Aquarius restaurant offer great choice and high quality we especially enjoyed the BBQ at Aquarius. We travelled with our 3 year old son Noah and this is where the Oberoi experience really did make our time special. All of the staff went out of their way to make his time here so memorable from arranging special trip for a camel ride (Thank you Kate) The head chef in Vinesse for letting him in the kitchen and have a chefs hat. Piddy for keeping him entertained, Therese in Vinesse and all the staff in there. Sri for helping out with transport to the kayaking. One night Noah fell asleep before dinner and the staff in Vinesse arranged dinner in our room to the same quality as the restaraunt amazing. As you can tell from the review this hotel excels because of the extra mile all the staff go to something Oberoi should be proud of. Wish we could stay longer and we certainly will want to have the Oberoi experience again
Wonderful hotel & staff - we cannot thank enough
We arrived yesterday at this amazing and wonderful hotel. Check in was very friendly & professional and we were swiftly taken taken to our room. Despite our late arrival, we were made a reservation for the last hour in the sea food restaurant. The food and staff were wonderful and is some of the best seafood we have had. This morning, We enjoyed the gym and suddenly my eyes and face started to swell almost like an allergic reaction. We requested a doctor who arrived promptly and gave me a prescription. The hotel staff were amazing and so caring, we really cannot thank them enough. Once the doctor left, they collected my prescription and obtained it for me. They have arranged our Half Board dinner in our room so I don’t have to feel self conscious and uncomfortable in a restaurant and delivered a get well card and bouquet of pink roses with the prescription. We can honestly say we are bowled over by the generosity and care that the staff have shown us today. We are in a country far from home but they have treated us like royalty. We want to thank everyone so very much. Our holiday has a few more days to go and hopefully things will settle and I will be well enough to enjoy it properly. We are already planning to come back next year as 24 hours has been enough for us to know that this is a very special hotel with amazing staff going above and beyond for their guests - we don’t need the rest of our stay to confirm that.
Best hotel experience
After having used TripAdvisor for years, this is the first review I am writing as it must be said that this place is paradise. This hotel is excellent, the rooms are very big, classy and stylish with super nice balconies looking the sea, the facilities are flawless and although we were there when it was fully booked, we felt that it was very very calm. The beach is perfect for sunset and the food extremely good. The service really deserves a separate note. Everyone in the hotel was extremely nice and helpful. We travelled with our 10 months old baby and everyone was very attentive of our needs. Our baby got sick in the middle of the night and the manager on duty made sure to find us the best doctor and sort out medicines needed. Oberoi does hospitality in a very warm way and makes guests feel family. There are many 5 stars out there with amazing facilities but no hotel where I stayed before had such a nice well trained staff. Thanks to everyone for making our stay perfect. Noa, Caglar and Maria
