“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2012

We enjoyed our stay at Layia Oak for 6 days, the staff were very pleasant and accommodating especially the executive and management office staff. The place was pretty clean and very spaciuous. The food was good at both the restaurant and the pool deck. The location is close by the main metro. I felt that prices were reasonable and relatively cheap compared to other hotels at the same level. The only thing is that i hope they can work on heating the pool more often as we were there in December and the water was fairly cold. Nonetheless, I would definately stay their again !!
THe only unfavourable experience i had is that the internet was ot free at the business center pr the lobby which i think most hotels offer,

The Layia Oak Hotel and Suites is a well maintained Apartment Hotel in the Greens area of Jumaira. The rooms of our 3 bedroom apartment where very spacious and the size of the kitchen, dining room and lounge was an added extra that we thoroughly enjoyed. It almost felt like staying in your own apartment with the added benefit of having a daily aid to clean up. The space is actually sufficient for 6 adults or 4 adults and 4 children.The staff was very friendly and always willing to help. The kitchen is stocked for 6 people and has a full size fridge and freezer, stove and oven in it. Better knifes for the food preparation would be nice. Negative is the high cost for internet usage. It only becomes affordable if one pays for a minimum if a week. It is cheaper to use the hotspot facility offered by DU network that for example is available in the metro station.

Room Tip: You can ask for early check in but this is not always possible. The mall of the emirates is very clo...

We used this hotel during Christmas holiday with our two boys. Altough hotel has trip adviser 2011 best hotel reward certificate,It is not very clean. I saw biggist cockroach on our forth day, when i asked cleaner to remove it he wasn't successfull. They had constraction work going on for five days around the pool. Than they put manure in the garden around the pool which smelt very bad and had so many flies. When i asked manager why they have all this going on during Christmas holiday she said that December is their quitest time, I found out from reception that was not true. Very few restorants and food facilitys around. Hotel restorant is not very cheap. Up points are; it's only 4 minutes walk to metro station and has very nice breakfast. Staff was very polite and helpfull but that was not enough for good holiday :(

I booked this hotel on the internet based on it's reviews. I was not disappointed. We had a two bedroomed appartment, that was spacious and clean, with a large balcony. We had a four and five year old with us and they really enjoyed the hotel. The hotel was quiet, and the food was good and reasonably priced. The only negative was that the choice was not very varied, although we ate out a lot, so it was fin for us. Staff were very helpful and courteous. Taxis to the malls etc were inexpensive, it cost £12 to get to the hotel from the airport. We will go back to this hotel when we next go to Dubai.

We stayed here from 20th until 26th October.

Arrival
We booked the hotel'c car to pick us up from the airport for the really rather good price of 150DHs and the driver was friendly and awaiting us at the arrivals gate.
On arriving at the hotel itself, the staff were very friendly, professional and polite, check in was trouble free. (We arrived at approximately 8:00PM
On seeing our suite we were very happy, (1104 at front of building, on 11th floor).
There were 5 in our party, (including my mother-in-law)....
We booked a 3 bedroom suite and the size was superb, the three bedrooms were spacious, the TV channels on offer were good too.
The beds were particularly comfortable.
We were amazed to discover the "Maid's" bedroom (an additional bedroom just in case you are bringing your servant!), complete with bathroom. Despite my best efforts, I was unable to persuade my mother-in-law to sleep in this room... ;-)
The kitchen was well equipped and we were more than happy with our accommodation.

The Pool Area
Situated on the 1st floor, There is a small children's Pool, a bigger adult pool and a Jacuzzi. All were clean and the staff present were friendly and polite. Our kids loved the pool, and enjoyed the rather nice iced teas from the pool bar.

The Location
One word of advice, the Layia Oak is not the best known hotel among taxi drivers, so best you just tell them "Layia hotel in T-Comm area", this solved our problems.
A wonderful base for a holiday in Dubai. Not close to the Beach, although a taxi to Jumeirah Beach park is only around 34DHS (£6). A taxi to the Mall of Emirates is about 15DHS (£2.80).

Local shopping
There is a carrefour express shop, with a handy shortcut, come out of hotel, cross the road and turn to your right (if you have kept Layia entrance behind you). Then walk along the road a bit, then cut through the gravel road and you will see the Carrefour ahead of you. Its about a 5 minute walk.

Internet Access
Expensive, when we stayed at Kempinski last year we got free internet, but here it costs 35DHs for one hour (you must take it all at once), 100DHS for 24 hours and 450DHS for 7 days.
The good news? There is free wi-fi at the Malls.
This one thing is the only thing I thought the Layia could improve on.


Summary
A clean, well appointed and equipped hotel, not centrally located, (but with cheap taxis, this was not a problem for us). Excellent customer service but pricey internet.
Would we stay there again? Undoubtedly the answer is yes.
Would I recommend it to you? Yes, go for it.
