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!
