Smile jumeirah beach hotel?

We're planning our 1st trip back to the UK later this year,probably just before Christmas,and are thinking of stopping over in Dubai for maybe 3 nights on the way.Have been told the Jumeirah Beach hotels are good but just wondered what you folks here thought.
There'll probably be just me,hubby and 15 yr old son as my daughter(17) wants to fly earlier than us although she might be persuaded to wait for us with the thought of some super shopping in Dubai!!
We'd just like somewhere nice to relax for a while before heading on and ,hopefully to make the long flight a bit more bearable.We've been really spoilt as the only time we've flown out to Oz and back my hubby's company have paid business class for us all!
Anyway,any ideas welcome!

the jumeirah beach hotel is nice and has great facilities...it's a bit chavvy at times because there are some cheap package deals from the uk...but overall, i'm sure you'd enjoy your stay there...

if money isn't an issue, take a look at Al Qasr or Mina Al Salaam...both owned by Jumeirah, and both fab...

If you can raise the $£$£$ I'd definately recommend the Burj - costs $$$$$$ but worth every penny!!!

Have a good trip

Burj is way overrated, really showing it's age now.

Al Qasr is nicest hotel I've stayed in here...as long as you don't mind a bit of exercise to get to the pool.

One and Only Royal Mirage is nice, if expensive. All of the others mentioned are nicer than the Burj. Unless you like the glitzy look, but be warned you will need sunglasses to get past reception.
