After we had spent the day before in Ras Al Khaimah, we went in the early afternoon toward Marjan Iceland. The access to the artificially created peninsula was controlled by a barrier which, however, was open.

DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island – Check-in

As we approached by car the hotel complex, we were surprised by its size. Normally we look for small to medium size hotels, but had to stay at the Doubletree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Iceland decided on the basis of the 600-meter private beach.

Upon entering the lobby, I was shocked by the masses of people for now. Various groups waiting for their check-in or their bus to leave. Thanks to my Hilton Honors Gold status I did not do in the long line at the front desk to happiness. Instead, I was able to take a seat at an extra desk. The clerk led me very professional and friendly through the check-in process. In addition to the delicious warm Doubletree cookies, we also got an upgrade from our booked rooms with king-size bed in a room in the exclusive Bay Club Villas.

DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island – Bay Club Room

Our Bay Club room had two queen-size beds, a seating area and a table with two chairs. The decor was a colorful but tasteful mix of oriental and modern style. Many elements were light wood, mostly oak, dressed up and the colors yellow and blue were dominant.

In the hallway, a sufficiently large closet with safe was installed. In this we were able to stow our laptop next valuables.

The bathroom was very spacious to our delight. It was next to a bathtub and shower. However, too few opportunities were available to hang something.

Since our room was on the ground floor, we also had a small private terrace overlooking the sea.

The Wi-Fi was free of charge available in the room for us than Hilton status guests. Otherwise it would have cost per day 30 AED. In public areas, and thus also on the beach there was free Wi-Fi, however.

Die Hotelanlage war sehr weitläufig und stark auf Familien mit Kindern ausgerichtet. So freute sich unser Sohn über den großen Spielplatz oder den Kinderpool. Außerdem gab es noch ein großes Wasser-Spaß-Piratenschiff, worauf sich unser Sohn mit 1 3/4 Jahren aber noch nicht traute.

The highlight was anyway the long sandy beach directly in front of our terrace. The umbrellas and chairs were included. Here, however, we noticed the significant share of package tourists, which necessarily had to leave early in the morning sun their fill with a towel. but we refrain from such actions not stop us and removed them in our search for a shady spot. This often led to funny discussions about ownership and possession! We had our fun!

The hotel grounds also have several pools, one of which, unfortunately, loud music blared over Ballermann belonged. A special pool was only intended for Bay Club guests at which it was thankfully quiet. Unfortunately, you also have to say that package tourists do not belong to us in a 5-star hotel. The conduct and behavior of some guests just was not appropriate.

DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island – Food & Drink

When booking at DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Iceland we could choose between bed and breakfast, half board or all-inclusive. After much deliberation we chose the half board offer.

The breakfast and dinner was held at the exclusive Bay Club restaurant. Because of this, however, was connected to the main restaurant and held no real controls, the division made little sense in our eyes. but we never had the problem Three to find a place for us in the large restaurant. We particularly liked the great design with the different tables and table sizes. However, the noise was like in a cafeteria. Perhaps a room divider or sound-absorbing elements could remedy this situation at this point.

abstract

Das DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Iceland is a great, but a bit too large, hotel. The upgrade to the Bay Club Villas has definitely paid off. We particularly liked, but especially our son, the private sandy beach. The entire staff was always friendly and helpful. With the various flat products to the hotel but did not particularly favor in our eyes. Tourists with Plastikarmbändchen and five-star hotel close out somehow for us.
