Time Place
Great view but bad quality, narrow parking
We stay in 3 bedroom flat right in the corner with full Marina view and bright. There’s no traffic noise in this position but the speaker of mosque in the opposite side is really loud. Kitchen is too small and bad quality. Leaking from the A/c above kitchen ceiling happens more… many times Toilets are also bad quality and smelly. A/C is noisy and old. Water will pour inside windows when it’s heavy rain The swimming pool is too small to swim. Parking entrance is narrow Less traffic jam in this area of Marina. No visitor parking in building but there are always available public parking lots outside except weekend afternoon and eveningShow less
Marina Pearl
Great Location and Nice Reatil Outlets below
This is a great building with a great location. The best part of the Building is that all the flats here are bigger in size as compared to most of Marina Flats. One Beds are with 2 Bathrooms and size is from 900 to 100 square feet. 2 Bed Room more… Flats are with 2 Bathrooms from 1150 to 1250 Squarefeet. 5 Floor building with 2 Lifts and no need to wait for ages to for lift. Gym and Pool is decent. Really good value for money and close to tram, metro, beach & Marina MallShow less
Armada Towers
Worst Gym and Timings
I am still new in Armada Tower 1 moved in June 2021 Gym - Timings 9am to 6pm VERY WEIRD FRIDAYS - Gym Closed very very WEIRD and the worst gym ever I have seen in my life. No equipments, No machines So Zero Star for the gym, the Pool is nice. Parking is good more… but for the maintenance you will have to run behind the agent or the owner. Electricity and Water bill is yet to come, I hope its not a bomb for me.Show less
Marina Crown
Not that great
We have been living in this tower for 5 years and have lived here in a couple of different apartments. What is good about it? • Brick and mortar building – less fire hazard • Good layouts What is not so good? • Old building • Maintenance issues – very bad sewage smell comes in summers in the apartments, common more… areas and balconies. Makes it impossible to sit. • Water keeps dripping from chiller all year round • The building management is not very cooperative. • Lot of high rise building coming up under the Dubai Harbour project so view will also go away.Show less
Saba Towers
Better than the 5-star Bonnington
We lived in the 5-star Bonnington before and some time missed the hotel services there. But the view of our apartment in Saba 3 simply makes up for it. The Marina Skyline during sunset is a must see. There are also so many things to eat, play and do downstairs more… for the kids. We simply LOVE it!Show less
Midtown by Deyaar
Overrated
The project is very new almost 1 and half years old. It is a community made up of 10-14 buildings and joint shops (which till this moment are not opened, not a single supermarket or any store is open yet) a common area with beautiful scenery and greenery, while 2 more… pools are made for children only as they are maximum 1.2m deep and without sun beds. The finishing of the building is very cheap, it very bad, paint comes off easily, tiles break easy, water leaks from faucets sometime, the sound isolation is ZERO if you like to live in a calm house, do not move in, you can hear your neighbors talking sometimes. The worst spec. is the Chiller fees, it is supplied by EMPOWER, however managed by the project agency which tends to split the billing and fees as they like, the average for 1BHK in peak summer is 1,000 AED (chiller only excluding DEWA) and on other day average is 500-700 aed/month however if you do not use the chiller at all you will pay 180-200 aed per month.Show less
Al Telal 5
Leaking Basement & Poor maintenance
I've been living in Telal5 for 2 years. Initally it seemed great with okay maintenance. The price was higher than market value but we decided to take it since it had closed kitchen and good room size. As the years went by, the reduced the rent due to market condition more… but maintenance has suffered. There is hardly any cleaning of the corridors and the floors are a mess. The basement is covered in water half of the time and am not sure what water has been leaking here for more than a year. The pest issues have increased due to poor cleanliness and bad habit of fellow neighbours who leave the food all around the garbage room. The management is least bothered by millions of complaints I hace made and am still paying more than market value for my stay. I would not reccomend staying at Telal 5 in the near future.Show less
Marina Pinnacle
Great Views, Great Location in Marina
Hey, I have been staying in Marina Pinnacle for the last 2 years now. One of the friends told me that it's not a good building but I feel it's an amazing building. Specially Tower A, facing Marina side. I have stayed in many places within Marina and JBR for the more… last 10 years in Dubai but this place is best-suited location-wise. Cabs are just down the building, Tram is 5 min walk at a visual distance, Metro is 10 min walk. Some of the best beach clubs in Dubai - Barasti & Zero Gravity are within walking distance. Skydive is at walking distance. You come out of the building and there is your Marina walk. The building is surrounded by over 4 supermarkets and 4 pharmacies. There is a dry cleaning and saloons inside the building itself. There are 4 pools, a jacuzzi sauna, a big gym and all most everything you can imagine. The security of the building is pretty tight but i consider it as good. It should be tight to keep the unwanted elements under control. Rents are low too.Show less
Preatoni Tower
Do not move in here
It's a new building in JLT, so we moved in with high hopes. There were lots of issues straight away but maintenance usually resolved them quickly. And then October hit and A/C was shut off to the ENTIRE building. We live on a high floor facing the sun all day more… so it got up to 28-30 degrees every day the whole winter. We woke up sweating and fell asleep sweating. Absolutely miserable. Spoke to many other tenants and they were all miserable too :( We raised the issue to everyone over and over: building managements, HOA, landlord, RERA, etc, No one could resolve this.Show less
Zumurud Tower
Big broken apartments
Big apartments, decent views but the apartment is get worse with time. The yellow water in cisterns and taps will make your life miserable. The moisture due to old AC ducts will keep the entire apartment wet and moist whenever they are off or above 23deg. The tiles in the more… kitchen are falling down. The traps in the balcony smell of filth. The traps will keep on clogging every 2 months. Gym machines are damaged and not working anymore.Show less
Al Waleed Garden
Absolutely terrible, stay away!
Pros: - spacious flats, but this is not rare in Dubai Cons: - low quality finishing; - the paint comes off from literally sticking a sticky note on the wall! - very loud neighbors. It seems this building only has young loud people living in it. Expect to hear music at all odd hours; - very more… thin walls. You can hear neighbors doing everything. It’s like they’re in the next room; - access to the building is very difficult; - no amenities nearby but a gas station; - AC bill is ridiculously high; - Overall expect to pay way more in bills in this building; - gym and pool area are very small for a building this big; - Way expensive for the area and what it offers; - management does absolutely nothing when you complain or about maintenance; TLDR: - Very loud people living in it. Pricey. Not worth it. Go somewhere else.Show less
Ghoroob
Sewage smell, very bad maintained old apartments,
Very bad community, every night we can't sleep from the sewage smell, very bad old maintained apartments, never to forget you need maintained 12 month per year and yes you have to pay for everything, cooling system is the worst always not cooling properly and don't forget the amounts we more… pay to empower.... its not worth living here and wasting your money with zero response and responsibility from this managementShow less
