“Served our purpose very well.”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

We are a family with two young children looking for reasonably priced accommodation in Dubai near to a beach. Anything very near the beach is unbelievably expensive in February. So friends that live in Dubai suggested Dubai Marina. We had a 2 bedroom apartment. It was huge. It had a great view of the surrounding tower blocks and marina and you could just see the sea around the side of the apartment. It's US$3 to take a taxi to the nearest public (free) beach at JBR which is an area full of restaurants and cafes. You could walk it without small kids but no idea how to. We always found a taxi straight away to take us back again whenever we wanted to leave. It's the same price to take a taxi to Marina Mall which has a big 'Waitrose' supermarket, book shops etc... Taxis are outside to take you back again. Or you can walk around the marina to 'Spinneys' supermarket and then take a taxi back for US$3 (the gentleman at the checkout wheeled our trolley outside and loaded the taxi for us). There's a mini mart about 3 minutes walk away across the bridge. The apartment was cleaned every day and they even washed up/loaded the dishwasher which I thought was amazing. The staff were always friendly and smiling. People are complaining in their reviews about the location but with the affordability and ease of using taxis for short distances you can't beat the price. The kitchen had the basic equipment to cook for ourselves and there are loads of restaurants a walking distance away (with small children) as well. Very happy overall. And we're fussy!

Room Tip: I asked for a 'high up' room with a good view. This is important because there is a building...

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment on the 31st floor and the apartment was very spacious and the beds were extremely comfortable. The apartment was cleaned every day and the bathroom and kitchen contained all the necessary facilities. We made breakfast for ourselves everyday and there are quite a few mini supermarkets within 10 minute walk. There are plenty of places to go and eat within 5 minutes walk around the marina. Whilst I do not have any negatives comments about this hotel, it is not a 5* hotel as advertised on some websites. It is very good, but do not expect any of the little details of higher standard hotels. The pool area is fine, quite small and basic, but very clean. The views from our apartment was great. We did not spend a great amount of time in the apartment, but it was definitely value for money.

If you go to Dubai either pay the full price for a beach hotel or apartment - alternatively stay close to a mall away from the beach. Dusit does not offer beach access - you can purchase beach access from the hotels - at AED 200 a person a day in weekdays - add AED 50 in the weekends. It will probably be cheaper to buy a room in a hotel with beach access.

We stayed at the 32nd floor - but didn't have a view of the sea from the living room - as they had decided to place the sleeping room where you could view the palm island - if you decided the stand up as the windows are located high from the floor. The pictures from the hotel web site doesn't truely reflect the view.

You have a balcony - but you cannot open the door as it is locked due to "security".

The pool area is small - and has no sun after 12pm,

Room Tip: Ask for Marina view

This hotel is billed as being well located but what you MUST realise is that there is a major road which you have to cross and a building site before you even get close to Jumeirah beach or the Marina shopping/restaurant areas. I traveled with my wife and 3 young kids (ages 7, 2 and 3 month baby) and I thoroughly regretted not paying more and getting somewhere better for the short time I was in Dubai. This hotel has NOTHING of interest, and no WOW factor at all. Even the TV channels in the rooms are sub-standard and have no proper movies, sports or kids channels. So anything you may want to do, apart from sleep, is away from the Hotel and that includes lounging at the restaurant or taking a sauna or swim. It may look well located on the map but practically speaking it takes ages to go around the one-way systems and building sites to even get near the beach and that's with a taxi. Take my word if you're in a similar position to me (family with kids) then please learn from my mistake, pay that little bit extra and book a hotel with some WOW factor such as Habtoor, Hilton, Amwaj Rotana etc so that you and your kids have something interesting to do on-site. Alternatively if budget is tight then book a cheaper 5 star city-based hotel and hire a car (its so cheap I paid £30 per day for a nice Mazda saloon, and petrol is cheaper than water at 25p per litre) as you are more or less at the same disadvantage. I did try using taxi's and the Metro but got so fed up with the 15 min it took to get to the station and back, with my 3 kids ending up all tired and frustrated, that I ended up hiring a car after 2 days for the rest of my trip. If you are single or in a group then this place can be an ideal place to use as a base camp, other than that the swimming pool/sauna and gym are laughably small and this hotel will completely disappoint.

The staff are well meaning and Dave at Concierge is fantastic for hints/tips etc on what to do and where to see. (Make sure you buy a Dubai Explorer book £60 for loads of discounts on activities available from carrefour etc) In terms of cleanliness it is good but this is far from what I would class as a five star hotel, for room size the hotel is good but internet is disappointingly by wired ethernet only (even though its 2012!). I'll conclude this review by saying these are my honest opinions, I did read trip advisor before booking and I promised myself that I would put this review online to help others in my situation.

Room Tip: higher the better
