Amwaj Rotana Jumeirah Beach

2020 has brought so much negativity and struggle for all of us due to COVID-19, many have not been able to travel and this is something we all look forward to each year just to escape from our every day work lives. Lucky enough we live in a summer destination, with stunning hotels, beautiful beaches and plenty of things to do and places to see. 
Recently we took our very first staycation of 2020 and finally took some time off to relax and enjoy what Dubai has to offer. We stayed at the well-known Amwaj Rotana 5 star hotel located at the Jumeirah Beach Residences in Dubai. 
Upon arriving at the hotel we received a lovely warm welcome by staff as they took our luggage and they straight away politely asked to check our temperature once we stepped inside, immediately we felt safe and taken care of. Reaching the hotel reception desk, we were greeted with buoyant and friendly staff and seeing from their eyes they clearly had a big smile hiding behind their masks. While we were checking in, we noticed there was a good distance from us to the staff behind the desk and there was also hand sanitizer, a mini bin to place used room cards and you would do self check-in and signing via a smart device which was a simple and fast process.
Within minutes from entering the hotel and checking in we got to the door to our room and there was a sticker on the door to inform us that this room has been sanitized, we felt safe already, we were staying in the luxury classic suite with the sea view it was amazing and having the view of Ain Dubai which is the worlds tallest Ferris wheel, it was incredible to see from the comfort of our room. 
We had so much planned during our 3 day stay at Amwaj Rotana, dinner at the very popular JBs Gastropub, breakfast which we decided to have in our room while we enjoyed the beautiful view, we went for brunch at Rosso's and we even had lunch at the famous Benihana's restaurant. We have separate reviews on our blog for each restaurant we visited so please take the time and go through them as they are somewhere you might want to visit. We had breakfast brought to our room, we called for room service and it was easy and the kind gentleman on the phone was very knowledgeable when it came to the menu options and what would be a good option for two people as we were just going to share, so thanks to him we ordered two American breakfasts which came with any style eggs on toast, pastries, fruit platters, juice and tea. It came within 30 minutes and we got a knock on the door with a lovely member of staff and a massive food trolley and he nicely explained to us that he couldn't come into the room to serve us due to the new restrictions and passed over the trolley to us. The food was nice and fresh, the dishes were still hot, and we got comfortable outside with our breakfast. It was all very delicious and the view from the balcony really topped it off. 
Throughout our stay we did happen to notice how clean everything was kept, the room, the corridors, the pool area even including the pool stairs. The staff do such a fantastic job keeping the hotel clean and safe for their hotel guests and to be honest this is all that's on our minds at the moment especially when thinking about staycations. As well as focusing on keeping the hotel spotless the hotel staff provided excellent customer service and they were so professional, friendly, and extremely fun to talk to. Most the time when we stay at hotels this is one thing we look out for as it really does change your experience as a hotel guest. There is nothing worse than having grumpy staff, so we were happy to see how well they were treating guests. 
One of the benefits of staying at a hotel in JBR is that you have everything you need minutes outside the hotel everything within easy reach. Restaurants, shops, beach, pharmacies, a cinema, and plenty of activities for kids too. Staying at Amwaj Rotana gives you quick access to all of this and more. 
We had some time to relax by the pool during our stay, the weather was perfect the pool temperature was just right, and the pool staff were so helpful and friendly. It was just what we needed. Now the biggest highlight of our stay was of course the classic suite. It has two bathrooms both with showers, it has a lounge area, dining area, main bedroom, and a walk-in closet! It also has a spacious balcony, which we spent every free minute out on there. The bed was so huge and extremely comfortable, we just sunk into the pillows. 
Our staycation unfortunately came to an end, check out was simple, our luggage was collected from our room and then taken to the lobby and once we got our car our luggage was placed in the car by a member of staff. We honestly didn't have to do a thing. We really enjoyed our stay at Amwaj Rotana, we couldn't have asked for a better staycation, we definitelyy were left feeling refreshed and ready for the week ahead.

Thank you Amwaj Rotana for providing us with such a pleasant stay.
