Just returned from two nights at the Melia Dubai and loved it; possible the nicest Melia property I have ever been to!
The hotel and room were simply gorgeous - extremely modern and comfortable. Very much a "boutique" hotel feel, almost like a "W" hotel.
I loved the rooftop pool area with its beautiful views.
We ate dinner both nights at the hotel - the first night at the rooftop grill (which i loved - food, service, and view). The second night we ate at the signature restaurant, which is an award-winning Indian restaurant. Service there was outstanding as well, and food was good, but dinner there will set you back at least 300 Dirhams minimum for two people - and that's without appetizers.
Location of the hotel suited us well - quiet residential neighborhood situated with easy access near the historic areas of Deira, the airport, and downtown Dubai, and an easy taxi ride to Jumeirah and Marina Dubai.
Lastly, the front desk staff was simply fantastic. There was one woman whose name began with an "S" who we interacted with every day and she couldn't have been better - I wish I could remember her name, but she was just the best. 5 stars all around.More
