I don’t prefer to give one star even. The building is maintained in a worst way. The maintenance department is of no help in the emergencies. My balcony drain was getting clogged every often, and when it rains my room was flooded with water through the balcony drain... complained several more… times but never taken an action. Worst building design and maintenance.Show less
I have bought my 1BR in this building last year and I am very satisfied with the quality of the apartment and the quality of the building in general. It has been recently renewed and it it very clean and comfortable. It is very close to marina walk, to Barasti more… beach, to Media City and also to the tram station. Furthermore the Carrefour supermarket is just at the ground floor. My suggestion for investors is to buy a property here.Show less
I lived in Paloma Tower, 33rd floor 1 bedroom apartment, facing JBR. Overall I would say Paloma Tower is a nice building in terms of the construction quality, location and layout, although it does feel a bit dated. The view of the ocean is of course only partial due to more… the apartments at JBR blocking – but you still get an ocean view feel. My one major complaint would be due to the building maintenance. My bathtub has leaked since the day I moved in. I used Emaar's app to call a maintenance person – they came three times and were never able to fix it. But I think this is more due to Emaar's app than a Paloma Tower-specific issue. There is also some road noise, but on the 33rd floor you are high enough where it isn't really an issue. Generally it gets quiet around 9 PM or so, though (Dubai) you are bound to hear some Lambo d-bags whipping around through the night.Show less
1- tenants crowd, garbage thrown in the parking all the time
2- cleanliness of building after 3 years is different
3- cockroaches in corridors (this appeared after 1.5 years of the building age) - this also reflects on residents and can affect you as they roam for shelter before winter
4- dirty elevators more… - also reflects on the crowd and the attention of management company to such details
5- fire alarm goes off several times, without a fire being there
6- thin walls can be annoying if someone is having a party, which is minimal since most of the buildings residents are families
7- no family or playing area only pool - no space for kids to play
8- windows cannot be easily cleaned - always look dusty
9- tiny closets in 1 bedrooms barely fits 1 person a couple will definitely need to buy another closet
10- cleanliness issue, cockroaches, corridors always dirty, garbage stains and dirty elevatorsShow less
It's not too bad depending on which building/where you live there. However, first sold as a a mid-range community, the quality of the building/apartment does not match that and rents rise everywhere in the city at the moment, just not there it seems. The good points are the beautiful sunset more… when you live high up facing the right side, it's a walk-able community, locations is also well connected, and they have some green spaces. Bad points in my view are that it's not really pet friendly. The false fire alarms every time were a nightmare and utterly stressful. Very small apartments. Poor construction/quality. Noise from A/C's on the roof when you live on top floor and noisy next door neighbors who couldn't care less as he was the owner of his apartment not caring about anyone. Noisy children squeaking and running throughout the day and night. Poor layout/design, building quality. Radio tower too close to building. Few grocery shops in walking distance. Other than that, it's not too bad.Show less
It's a great community. The location is excellent, everything is nearby. The apartments are spacious which is super important not to feel claustrophobic like in some other buildings in the city. The best of course are the birds and the trees and without it, this place would be nothing. There more… are downsides too unfortunately. First of all, the walls are extremely thin. To that extend that I am not even using the bedroom (but paying for a 1-bed!) because every early morning my neighbors have a loud alarm going off that lasts for a while. It's like they are sitting in my room. It's very disturbing! Especially so early in the morning, makes you feel uncomfortable in the space you are occupying that should actually make you feel good! Also, sometimes there is noise from the neighbors above you (moving furniture etc.) but it's not too bad. Another bad thing is the cooling company where overcharges can happen. Also the management company which is unresponsive and ignoring emails.Show less
In short, the owners are fully aware of the bad construction quality yet they lie to all the tenants about maintenance, essentially painting over problems rather than fixing them. This is a huge problem for tenants on the 4th (top floor) of all 4 blocks of this community. more…
1. The ceiling leaks every time it rains (both smoke detectors don't work because of the water damage). This is huge in terms of civil defence health and safety.
2. The windows do not seal properly leading to a build up of heat and humidity inside the apartment. AC bills are ridiculous as a result.
3. This humidity leads to mold developing in the false ceiling which leads to really bad smells.
4. Balcony drainage does not work because the contractor managed to pour cement into the pipes.
5. Sink water smells like chemicals in the mornings.
The building owners and maintenance are an absolute scam refusing to accept any of the above, they lie to us and paint over problems.Show less
Skycourts Towers is best place to live. Spacious apartments, all facilities you can find here, best place for family living. Only need to upgrade the facilities like kids play area can convert in to children learning area/play ground. Other facilities like Gym need to be upgraded. Parking is perfect.
The security changed in August 2022 and it became a disaster. They follow the rules too much. I was trying to get a bed delivered... They don't allow the delivery in the evening because as they said there could be noise from the fixing the bed frame and some neighbours more… will complain and the security will lose his job... We waited for one week sleeping almost on the floor and finally! The delivery came at 18:56. But now the security didn't allow them to go in because it's only allowed until 19:00. 4 minutes? One hour of talking and begging - no luck.Show less
The building is poorly constructed-, humidity in,dust coming through the windows and the smells of food coming through the poorly maintained AC and garbage area.
Poor management - no one ever answers - and maintenance.
I do not recommend it.
Security - the security kind guys, are the best thing about more… this area and place.Show less
We moved in because we saw that it was clean, proper, has superb security, clean corridors, Family exclusive, has Gym and pool facilities, Chiller Free and affordable. After 8 months, the bathroom ceilings started to pour, even if several maintenance has been done. The exhaust is not powerful enough, there more… is no balcony to dry clothes, molds are starting to grow. At first there are no roaches, then they start to emerge even if we maintain cleanliness. Not that much unlike the other old buildings, but within a year of living here, they did not do pest and mold control.
I was also surprised to see that there are no AC ducts, so basically, the AC unit is cooling the ceiling which is almost half of the entire floor area and since the ceilings are not painted, the concrete are bare and who knows what grows there.
They increased the rent due to inflation. Still lower than the most rental buildings in the Area so we renewed because it is also accessible to shops, stores, bus stops & work.Show less
