Hi all, we just arrived from Dubai (July 24th 2013) and would like to give a perspective from a tourist on the construction work that is taking place next to this hotel.
First description from the hotel:"The Walk” at Jumeirah Beach Residence is currently undergoing some enhancement and the development work is taking place in the surrounding area of Amwaj Rotana, therefore our guests may experience some disturbance from the noise. Please note this does not affect the views of the Arabian Gulf and the Palm Island from our hotel rooms."
This is an understatement de luxe. There is a gigantic building project going on, so to say adjacent to the swimming pool and there is more or less constant activity taking place, 24 hrs of the day. I am attaching a picture that explains this a bit. They are building 3 story high shopping mall along the beach area (which used to be a parking lot).
(Also worth mentioning, since this is starting to be quite rare in modern days...use of internet is being charged for and is quite costly. Charge is pr. two devices.). Would also have been ok to be able to brush your teeth in cold/chilled water....
