After much research we chose Raffles for our holiday in Dubai. The hotel itself is excellent but it is the service that sets Raffles apart from other hotels. The staff cannot do enough for the guests. Amazingly within a day the staff knew our names and welcomed us by name each time we returned to the hotel or entered the restaurant, breakfast, the lobby bar etc. Amazing.
We had a very minor issue with the children with the pool but the way the staff handled this was truly exceptional. Special mention to the assistant manager Gijs Velema for really making our children's day!
We visited various other hotels in Dubai during our stay but it was always a pleasure to return to the Raffles hotel.
