We’ll start with the pools, because that’s where we spend most of our time. The photo above is from the kids pool which is part of Sinbads, the kids club.
This is Sinbads, it’s shaped like a boat, and in front is the family pool.
Here’s a shot of the family pool, lots of shallow beach entry in that pool, plus slides.
Here’s Mr7 whizzing down the slide.
But we actually spent more time in the larger leisure pool. The twins are great swimmers now and they liked all the fountains.
The swim up bar was a bit of a hit too… and gave my wallet a hit.
The twins spent hours playing with other kids in the jacuzzi too. It got cooller in the late arvo and they always ended up in here.
And Teen14 did a free introductory dive in the (very) deep end of the leisure pool too. He absolutely loved it.
Which leads me to:
You can do lots of diving with the dive centre, which is just around the corner from the Talisa spa and gym.
There are also many free water activities on offer.
Which we foolishly didn’t take advantage of but will next time.
The Talise Spa and Gym… I did go to the gym and the teens did too. Next time, book me a massage at that spa.
You can enjoy a game of tennis.
Or swim in the lap pool
Cafes and Restaurants
There are 16 restaurants and bars at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel. Since I was there solo mothering with the teens and twins, I didn’t get a chance to fearlessly investigate them all.
For families, the Beachcomber and Latitude were the best. Both served huge breakfasts, complete with camel milk and chocolate fountains!!
We ate dinners at Beachcomber, really enjoying the great variety of options at their buffet, something for everyone in the family.
Breakfast outdoors at Beachcomber.
Latitude for breakfast, there’s a terrific kids play area in this restaurant and kids breakfast servery too.

Whew!! Have a look at the Jumeirah website to find out more about restaurants and activities available.
