DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island
The 5-star hotel DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Iceland lies on a peninsula west of Ras Al Khaimah. Thanks Hilton Honors Gold status we were upgraded to the new Bay Club Villas. Whether the room upgrade was worth, learn it in our review.
After we had spent the day before in Ras Al Khaimah, we went in the early afternoon in the direction of Marjan Island. The access to the artificially created Peninsula has been controlled by a barrier, which, however, was open.
As we approached the car in the hotel, we were of the size of surprised. Normally, we look for small to medium-sized Hotels, had decided on the DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island due to the 600-metre-long private beach.
Upon Entering the Lobby, I was of the masses of people for the first time shocked. Several tour groups waiting to Check-in or your Bus for departure. Thanks to my Hilton Honors Gold Status, I had to do for the happiness of the long queue at the reception. Instead, I was able to take part in a extra Desk space. The staff guided me very professionally and friendly by the Check-in process. In addition to the delicious warm DoubleTree Cookies, we got also an Upgrade from our booked room with a 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 items were of light wood, mainly oak, in disguise, and the colors Yellow and Blue were predominant.
In the hallway, a sufficiently large closet with a Safe was installed. In this, we were able to stow in addition to valuables to our Laptop.
The bathroom was to our delight very spacious. There was in addition a bathtub and a shower. However, too few opportunities were to hang up to something.
Since our room was on the ground floor, we had a private little terrace with sea view.
The Wi-Fi was in the room for us as the Hilton-status guests free of charge. Otherwise it would have cost per day AED 30. In the public areas, and thus also on the beach there were, however, free Wi-Fi.
DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island hotel
The hotel complex was very spacious and heavily on families with children. So our son was excited about the huge Playground or the kids pool. In addition, there was a large water-fun-pirate ship, whereupon our son with 1 3/4 years of trust.
The Highlight is the long sandy beach was right in front of our terrace. The screens and were included. However, one noted here is the significant proportion of package tourists, which necessarily had to occupy the early Morning your loungers with a towel. Such actions, however, let us not stop and distant this in our search for a shady spot. That led not infrequently to funny discussions about ownership and possession! We had our fun!
The hotel has several Pools, one of which, unfortunately, loud Ballermann-music over boomed module also. A special Pool was only designed for Bay Club guests, it was fortunately calm. Unfortunately, you don't need to say that, for us, a flat rate of tourists in a 5-star Hotel. The conduct and behaviour of some guests was simply not appropriate.
DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island – food & Drink
At the time of booking with the DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island, we were able to choose between Overnight stay with Breakfast, half Board or All-inclusive. After long deliberation, we chose the half-Board offer.
The Breakfast and dinner took place in the exclusive Bay Club Restaurant. Because of this, however, was associated with the main restaurant and also there are no real controls instead of found, made the division in our eyes, makes little sense. We had but never find the Problem a place for the Three of us in the large Restaurant. Especially the great Design with the different tables and the table sizes has fallen to us. The noise was like in a cafeteria. Perhaps we could create at this point, a room divider, or sound-absorbing elements of the remedy.
The offer on Buffet for both Breakfast and dinner very good. For Breakfast, there were several omelet and egg dishes-stations. But also a great selection of Desserts and salads. At the dinner, themed evenings ensured of variety at the Buffet.
The drinks (coffee, water or juice) at Breakfast included in the price. At dinner we had as half Board guests for the table with the drinks. For a 1.5 litre bottle of water we paid 18 AED (approx. 4 EUR).

Review of DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island
- Viceroy (seaview)
The DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island is a great, but a little to large, Hotel. The Upgrade in the Bay Club-Villas has definitely paid off. Particularly liked us, but especially our son, the private, sandy beach. The entire staff was always friendly and helpful. With the various package products, it has done the Hotel but in our eyes, no special Favor. Tourists with plastic bracelets and a Five-star Hotel close to us somehow.
