Reviewed May 28, 2012

After being 5 days in a hotel in Deira me and my friend moved to Dubai Marina and it was so refreshing. Dubai looks like ghost-town to me, many very tall buildings, many cars, crowded shopping-malls but little real life that you want to feel when you visit some place. Well, in Dubai Marina you can find "soul" - very vivid life within this usual picture of Dubai - tall buildings. Pearl Marina hotel-apartment is on the edge of Marina, with balcon overlooking the water of marina and Marina Walk. Hotel is nice, comfortable, very clean, with AC and fully equiped kitchen, supermarket across the street...Breakfast is decent, could be better. Metro station is about 10 min walk, beach also 10-15min walk and it is very nice, sandy, although no beds and umbrellas to rent. Supprisingly no shower also because it is considered "wild", although it is between Sheraton's and Hilton's beach. Showers, beds and umbrellas to rent( two beds and umbrella about 8 euro), cafes and some music have Jumeirah Park Beach where you can go by taxi (very cheap!) and entrance is about 1 euro. So, Pearl Marina is good hotel-apartment, with good position and for good price. No luxury just good accomodation

Seduced with all the rosy reviews on the "stunning views of the Dubai Marina" not only here on tripadvisor but also on booking.com and many others, we decided to book in this property. There was only 1 room left and it was the 2-bedroom villa or apartment. Arrived there around 4:30 pm were asked to wait because the 2-bedroom villa we booked was not ready! We went out and had the grocery done then came back an hour later and it was ready by then (please note that check in is 2pm). The lobby is literally the space before the elevators which was furnished with scattered sofas. The front desk staff were professional and the check-in was speedy. Refreshments were offered for the wait and an apology. The villa was actually just outside the hotel. The villa we rented had a huge sitting area with a dinning corner and kitchen. The utensils were not clean as were the floors and tables (they had to rush the previous guests out and housekeeping job was not meticulous then). The only view from out windows was the wall separating the villas from the tiny swimming pool area. So, there were no "stunning views" of the marina for us. The villa also had a maid room with a separate bathroom. Additionally, the beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were very basic and had enough towels and toiletries. The water pressure was good. The place is new after all and the bathroom and electric fittings were in good working conditions. The area around the hotel is quiet. There was a big supermarket within a short walk. Additionally there was a men's hairstylist, laundry and a pharmacy, all within short walking distance. The AC in the master bedroom did not work well and it did not have its own control. We left the doors open and this helped circulate the cold air around. The gym was small. There were 2 treadmills and 1 cycling machine, total gym machine, few light weights and a bench. The swimming pool was tiny and not covered. around 11:30 am we were rushed out of the villa for the next guest who apparently arrived early! We left but with question marks on whether we are going to be back to this place again.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the villa. Try to book in the main hotel.

Very clean. Arrived late in the evening only for our room not to be ready which caused us some issues with our evening plans. Needed to get ready for our evening out in the restrooms for restaurant customers which was not ideal.
Abandoned plans to sit by the pool because there were not enough sun loungers. I think I counted 4 or 5. There was room for 5 more comfortably. The staff didn't try and accommodate us when we asked if there were anymore in storage.
Immaculately clean. The staff were mostly helpful and friendly. Good value for money.

Your point about having more sun loungers near the pool was very valid and I am happy to inform you that it has already been taken care of. I hope you will have an opportunity to return and enjoy the Pearl Marina Hotel again in the future.

The Pearl Marina Hotel Apartments are not to be confused with the Marina Pearl Hotel - although they are in the same area. The Pearl Marina only recently opened, and therefore the rooms and facilities in general are very clean. The staff were friendly and did their best to comply to any of our needs satisfactorily. The hotel is perfect for the price of the stay, given the area and the general high prices of accommodation in Dubai.

The Studio Deluxe room, was simple, fairly spacious, clean and elegant, with enough room to fit a baby cot (which was offered free of charge). The studio came equipped with fridge/freezer, microwave, induction hob, sink, kettle and kitchen utensils. There was also a scale, iron, LCD TV and hairdryer - so really everything you might ever need while away from home. Wi-fi is also available in the room - free of charge. What value!

Coffee and tea and water were replenished daily in the room, at no extra cost. Just across the street is a large Choithram supermarket, where you can stock up on some basic foods which would save you quite a bit on paying for breakfast every morning - as the rate is for bed only. Breakfast was offered for AED45 per person - and frankly, we did not bother to try.

The view from the room was wonderful, as it overlooked the water of the Marina directly. The windows are from ceiling to floor, so the view could be appreciated to the maximum. Some of the other larger apartments also have accessible balconies from the rooms.

There are only two negatives which need to be mentioned. The location of the hotel, while dircetly on the waterfront and near a large supermarket, is not in the heart of Dubai Marina exaclty. You would need to walk at least 20 minutes to get to Jumeira Beach or 30 to 45 minutes to get to Marina Walk (both of which would be tiresome if the weather is hot as usual). So the best option is a quick taxi ride to those two areas, or to the Metro Station close by if you want to go further afield.

The other negative was the cleaning of the room. It would appear that some of the cleaning staff are more meticulous than others, but this is nothing a quick call to the reception would not fix.

Overall, the Pearl Marina Hotel Apartments is highly recommended, at a fantastic price, and lovely view. While not directly in the hustle and bustle of things, it's an ideal place to unwind after a long day trekking Dubai's vast malls and other escapades.

We stayed for five nights and we got surprised that we may have early check in at 11.30 am (though they informed us this is not possible if they are fully booked so i guess we were lucky), moreover the room rate is quite fair rather than many of the other apartments, we even got double superior room which so meaningful to us with 2 young children (age 8 and 10),no need to sleep tight each other since there were 2 medium size beds in the room.We had a great time here, apart from relatively small pool and standard breakfast . However, the manager then turned up and took the gift of feedback very graciously. This meant that when we'd calmed down, we could properly enjoy a gorgeous stay with wonderful views from very clean rooms, quiet, very sweet staff (one of whom found my flipflops, remembered my room number and brought them to me with my room service) . This hotel really appreciate their guest! For sure, we will come again next time..

Room Tip: Ask for a room with good view...i guess most of the rooms have excellent views to Marina water front

We stayed for two nights after finding a very good deal for this new hotel apartment on booking.com.
The one bedroom apartment we had was spacious and well appointed with all new neutral colored furniture, a kitchen equipped with all the basics, two bathrooms and a very large bed. We had a nice view of the water but unfortunately no balcony and quite small windows. The best view was from the bedroom as it was at the front of the building.
Service was fine, didn't eat at the hotel but believe it offers breakfast only. The pool was small, somewhat stark sitting out on a new te rrace area, and as it lost the sun by midday and wasn't heated we found it to be quite cold - this won't be an issue soon as the weather hots up.

We especially liked the location even though its tucked at the far end of the marina it is on the water with direct access to " the walk" .We went walking along the walk each day, takes about 15 mins to walk to the Dubai Marina Mall. Great thing to do is take the ferry that goes from by the mall - costs 50 dirhams and takes you down the marina and out to sea along by the Palm - nice views of Jameira beach, Atlantis and the Burj Al Arab from the water. It's also close to Jumeira beach and lots of good eateries. There's a very good supermarket just across the road

All in all a good stay at an excellent price. Can recommend The Pearl Marina as long as the price stays below 500 dhms a night as it represents great value for money in what is usually a pricey area.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor room with a balcony at the water frontage to enjoy the views. You'll see...

I have stayed in the Pearl Marina for it's first opening six weeks and can honestly say this is one of the best apt/hotels in the marina. I have stayed in many.

I have a one bed apt and it is bright, airy and spacious. They are very modern and clean. The one bed consists of a separate kitchen, toilet, large living room and a large ensuite bathroom.

The kitchen is fully equipped. I cook every evening and have not had to buy anything extra. The living is large with nice cream furniture. The bedroom has a large double bed and plenty of wardrobe space. Mine has a balcony with partial marina views but not all have.

The only faults with the apts is that noise can be heard from above and nextdoor. It can be a little frustrating.

The pool is small, more of a splash pool bbut is clean and gets the sun. There are only 4 deck chairs.

The gyms is fine for short stays but if you're a regular gym goes it probably won't fit the bill. There is a bike,2 treadmills, Xtrainer, an all in one weights machine, a set of dumbells upto 12kgs and a gym ball. It's nice an spacious though with mirrors all around.

There is a coffee shop in the hotel but only serves to those paying b&b. Pity as it would be nice to get a coffee in the mornings to go or to take one to the apt.

The location is excellent. It's at the end of the marina with access to the walk directly from the hotel. Taxis pass by very often. There is a large new supermarket across the way a well as a barbers and a launderette. There is a really nice restaurant on the marina behind the hotel. Serves great food and shisha. The metro is about 15 min walk away, 10min in taxi to the Emirates Mall, 20 mins to Dubai Mall etc etc.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. I had an issue with a burst pipe and it was resolved immediately. Any times I have asked for something like extra glasses for when I had friends coming they delivered promptly. The cleaners are very friendly (although have very little English) but do a fantastic job.

This hotel I think offers the best in value and comfort in Dubai for those on a budget.
