Dar Al Masyaf: Nobody would argue that the Madinat Jumeirah hotels of Mina A’Salam and Al Qasr offer an exceptional level of service and quality but for the absolute pinnacle of the complex the discerning traveler knows that Dar Al Maysaf is impossible to beat. The name means “summer house” in Arabic and these large villas have a real feeling of seclusion and intimacy. They can be reached by taking a short abra ride from elsewhere in the hotel and after you’ve found your room taking a dip in a private pool or eat in one of the mini-complex’s private restaurants.

Fantastic hotel. Staff first class they aim to please. Rooms and service superb. Lovely bathrooms. Food in all restaurants fantastic. They always remeber your name, likes, dislikes. Highly recommend to everyone. Stayed at least a dozen times. added bonus you can go to Royal Meridein facilites anytime you want to with free shuttle bus 7am-1am.

Styaed at the address. a disaster. Filthy balcony. It was our 30th wedding anniversary went club level. Got non view room. They said they would change it for 600dhs a night extra. ramadam so no afternoon tea! Restaurant poor. Would never go again. No feedback from our complaints but they did clean the filthy SMALL balcony!!! Never recommend. Not like the Grosvenor House or Royal Meridien- they always go the extra mile.
