Fun at Jumeirah Beach!

Earlier this month my husband and I had a few days away in Dubai. We stayed at the Sheraton Jumeirah beach, this hotel I would recommend to anyone. This hotel has a great location at the end of the beach, it boasts exclusive access to this end of the beach. I also found this part of the beach to be the nicest. The beach is well looked after and there are several security guards around which makes you feel very safe. I felt much safer walking around in Dubai than I do back in the UK!
