Booking accommodations through Travelmob was very easy. The host for our apartment was very responsive and we received feedback on our queries within hours or the latest by the next day. We are a family of 5, and we initially booked a three bedroom apartment and later we were informed that they will offer us a comparable apartment as the one they originally offered was not available. The link they sent us showed a 2 bedroom apartment, when I inquired, we were assured that it was a three bedroom apartment. When we got there, it was a two bedroom apartment and a "maid's room". It was Ok for us as we had 5 in our party, but I feel that we should have received a discount on the price, as the third bedroom was very tiny, with a tiny bed and a bathroom that had a shower that was not enclosed... very hard to use without flooding the place. The floors were not very clean and there was a spill of some sort in one of the bathrooms that we had to clean.
Our host who greeted us the day we arrived was very courteous, and accommodating. His name was Nasri. When we entered the apartment, we noticed that they only had 5 hangers in the closets, the maid's room bed did not have a cover on the bed, and there weren't enough towels for us to go to the private beach. Nasri was very accommodating, and he got us the covers and the hangers the same night we arrived, and only three extra towels for the beach on the second day (we needed 4). Later on we noticed that the kitchen did not have any kitchen towels, and there were 6 bath towels and only 4 face/hand towels. We felt bad asking for more stuff, so we made do with what we had. In the bathrooms, the strange thing was there was no power outlet by the sink to plug a hairdryer to fix your hair, so we made a temporary "hair station" in the family room near a plug and a mirror. Also, there were no bath mats outside the shower doors or the bathtub, so we used two of the hand towels to act as bath mats when we got out of the shower.
The location of the apartment and the view were excellent. Very close to the "Beach walk" and only 20 min drive to downtown. All in all, it was a great place to stay and we had a great time in Dubai.
In order for the unit to have a 5 star rating, based on my previous experience with 5 star rentals, I would recommend the Host do the following:
1) Make sure the apartment is spotless when it is offered for rental.
2) Make sure you have at least one bath towel and one face towel per person, and bath...
