Powered by AI

Marina Byblos Hotel offers a vibrant experience, boasting a lively atmosphere with stunning waterfront views and live music, which garners appreciation from guests. The rooms are generally found to be comfortable and clean, although opinions on their decor and maintenance are mixed. While some guests feel the hotel provides good value, others consider the prices steep for the services rendered. Praise is consistently directed at the hotel's cleanliness and the staff's attentive service. The hotel's location is popular for its proximity to the marina and beach, though some travelers note it's a bit of a walk to the metro. Amenities like the pool and fitness area receive positive remarks, but there are occasional comments about slow Wi-Fi and a shortage of power outlets.

We usually stay in the Hilton at JBR but it was going to be far too expensive. Byblos worked out almost 1/3 of the price so we decided to give it a try.

I was a little concerned after reading the negative reviews, but I shouldn’t have been.

Firstly the staff were wonderful, I am totally baffled as to how people could think otherwise. They were all friendly and polite ; nothing was too much trouble. A special thank you to Muhammad, who helped me organise a PCR test at the hotel, even communicating with company on my behalf, when he was off duty. He is a real asset to the hotel.
Dave at the pool bar was also friendly and great to chat to.

The room was clean and fairly modern. It was missing a couple of not very important features that I’d like, but this isn’t a five star hotel so on that basis I cannot complain.

There were plenty of bars and restaurants in the hotel as well as a hair salon, a spa and a rooftop pool.

The location was great. 2
Minutes walk to the Marina and 10 to the JBR.

My only real complaint was that we were staying on level 2, and we must have been next to the nightclub as we could hear it at night. However in their defence the staff did offer to move me, but we had already unpacked and usually sleep with earplugs anyway, so just decided to stay out.

Value wise the Byblos Marina was fantastic, our rate even included a buffet breakfast which wasn’t bad.

As previously mentioned there were a few minor improvements that I would make, but for the star rating and the price it was definitely fantastic.

My experience at the Byblos Hotel Marina was wonderful. The staff was friendly and accommodating specially from house keeping , manager of housekeeping Mr.zarir was so welcoming and friendly making sure that I had the best experience possible. Mr.subhash Supervisor also a great person so kind of you guys The marina itself was very well maintained and the boats and facilities were impeccable. The waterfront views were breathtaking and the marina was well-lit, giving it a beautiful atmosphere. The hotel was also very close to the beach, making it easy to explore the area. Overall, my stay at the Byblos Hotel Marina was great and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

I’m sad to write this because the hotel is lovely & the staff are really friendly. the location is perfect.
However, things that let it down:
Booked deluxe room with Marina View & thought from the website it was twin beds (totally my mistake). Phoned reservations & they were brilliant & said would get me a twin room.
1. The room I initially paid for was more expensive & they would not refund the difference or even offer anything.
2. The room we got was really nice but was overlooking the Main Street which was busy & noisy (so sad no Marina view but my fault).
FOOD
Was so disappointed. My son treated me for meal in hotel. It was very expensive. I’m vegetarian. There was a fish soup & a few meat dishes for main course. I asked the Restaurant Manager if there was a vegetarian soup, starters or main course. None at all. Just salad & bread !!! Cost my son about £50. They could see how disappointed we were & at the very least should have apologised & refunded us. We left & went to the Chinese Restaurant across the road.
3. It’s very true about the “ladies “ working in the Hotel & it’s a true shame that this goes on.
This hotel is beautiful & has so much going for it & it’s spoiled by things which is such a shame 😢😢

Staff gets an excuse not to give you the expected service to guests who bought only a voucher, very unacceptable. We went for a massage and the lady who did my massage was just showering me with Johnsons baby oil, and spreading it in my back, not even pressing, just like applying a lotion. She talks to much and wasn't even focusing on the job. She was explaining that she already had so much customers from the morning and she can no longer give me her best service (terrible)!!!! She even highlighted that they always gets more complaints from guests who purchased the voucher than the ones who paid in full. Just wow!! Like she's suggesting that I don't have the right to complain because I only paid a voucher! To the Management, i suggest that you don't sell a voucher, so no one will choose to buy it and no one will be frustrated and feel dissatisfied/unhappy after the service. (But I doubt that the service will be worth it even if I pay the full amount!!)

P.s, changing rooms are smelly, looks old and no maintenance at all

I was expecting more to a hotel spa than a standalone spa however turned out that standalone spas are still better..

We stayed in this hotel after booking directly in its website. The location of the hotel is not bad although it is more than 10 min walk from the metro station. Apart from this the price of the rooms is too expensive to its service and amenities. The suite room adds nothing than a boring living room. The shower stand was not working and they are few plugs placed at inconvenient spots across the room. Charging a phone is a nightmare and involves walking across the room. Even if we asked for non-smoking room they placed at in a smoking room and refused to charge it until after several days. The noise from the night club was the most horrible experience that deny quality sleep. The noise runs until 3AM. The gym is a joke. Only one treadmill works and the other two bikes were malfunctioned.
Think twice before booking to this hotel. You will regret it.

The most miserable unprofessional rude people (the staff) I have come across in my 5 weeks in Dubai would highly recommend not staying here and finding somewhere else! This was our first hotel we stayed at when getting here and thought that everywhere would be like this, but all other hotels we have been to the staff have been so helpful and friendly. Not sure what they look for here when employing people but it’s quite disgusting the way they look at you and speak to you. Especially if you have a question for them, they don’t like that at all! Also the cleaners do the worst job of cleaning your room. Only nice staff member we came across was Mohamed the shisha man he would always greet you with a smile and see how you are doing.

I went with my friends in Arena Shisha terrace and the service was disaster.
20 mins to wait for someone to take our order because the waitress was on her phone. When she came, she was not even wearing the mask properly. We asked for the bill, it tooks 30 mins to arrive. My friend requested a juice instead of alcohol ( for the happy hour) and the waitress said she will get back to us to see if it’s possible to do the exception... we are still waiting for the answer.
However when the bill arrived, everything was charged and she started arguing with us ( removing her mask every time she was speaking...) the manager came but did not helped, he actually did not even apologised or asked her colleague to put her mask on... very bad experience.
Only positive thing: Shisha man was kind and apologised to us. Thanks to him!
First and last time for sure!

we had a honeymoon holiday with my wife for 3 days and the people were very friendly and understanding and also helped in every way The cleaning and technical spouses took care of it in a short time without calling a taxi. The hotel is clean, comfortable and 10 minutes away from the sea. You can reach the sea in the marina by walking. In general, the pool part of the hotel made us a little uncomfortable. We asked for a sunbed and it was said that it could be empty when we waited for 30 minutes. overall it was pleasant, breakfast is very good there is a tall gentleman in a gray suit, he always has a smiling face and a great energy, but I can't say the same smiling face for those who work on the terrace Moreover I would like to thank the gentleman BHOJ who works in the reservation, he is a great person, he provides all the management there and approaches the events with a solution focus.

We booked this hotel for our honeymoon as we were transiting in Dubai for a few days. I informed the hotel this was for a special occasion, they did not accommodated which was fine however they failed to acknowledge this. On arrival the porter was helpful and greeted us however, the receptionist were unprofessional and unwelcoming. The hotel did not give us any information regarding hotel facilities and their services, we were handed our room keys and sent on our way. We arrived into the room, it was pretty spacious with a decent view. The bathroom taps were giving out light brown coloured water, which did clear from the second day of our stay. The first day we did not have any hot water and the shower head did not sit on the holder. It was not pleasant having to hold the shower head whilst showering. We requested an iron and ironing board which was provided however, it was removed without any notice. We felt we had no privacy as someone had been in our room to take the iron and ironing board without informing us. The car park facility was very handy and car park staff were really helpful and welcoming. Roof top pool facility was of good standard with a mixed view of the city and marina. Location was perfect, it was a 10 minutes walk to JBR walk, many local shops. Checkout was quick and easy.

Overall - would not visit property again.

the hotel itself is nice. room was well decorated, comfortable, room service and front office staff are friendly and helpful. but all good experience was totally destroyed by african security and restaurant manager Yulia from "Vaccine bar". me and my friend wanted only to have a look on a new bar, but we were "warmly" greeted by agressive security who said they are fully booked. we didn't want to eat or drink, only to check the bar not more than 1 minute, byt he totally refuced to let us come in. when manager Yulia came she just started to shout on us like we were not guests but her enemies. totally unprofessional, rude, agressive staff. if you don't know how to deal with guests and hate people, don't come to work in hospitality!
