The Review's might sound a little harsh but it is the truth. No Building with no advantages but this one has only 1 so will dish it out and move on to the real issues. 1- Location Location Location: Very close to tram which connects u to the Metro. Very close more… to Marina Walk and hence Marina Mall (15 mins brisk walk). And lastly, easy access to SZR With that out of the way, let me explain the hell bit 1- Noise: If u live in a lower floor u r doomed. Noise comes from the Tram, the inconsiderate drivers and their tooting, and the non-stop construction. 2- Neighbours: I dont understand what is wrong with Neighbours in Dubai. inconsiderate, unclean, dodgy ... the list is endless. What bugs me most is how they treat the garbage room. Garbage is either left on the floor attracting pests and what have u, or dropped down the chute but with chute door left open causing the entire floor to smell. 3- Foul Smell: There seems to be a garbage problem in Marina in General and Pinnacle tower has its share. A terrible smell comes out of the car park and sometimes it creeps up into the floor if the Chute is left open. dont you dare having the window open when entering or leaving the car park. 4- The Car Park: the tiniest Car Park ever. if u have an SUV u better be a good driver. one parking space regardless how many bedrooms the flat is. 5- Maintenance: Haven't had to get them to fix anything but the building itself is in bad shape. there is usually one lift out of service. mould building up around AC vents and the odd maintenance jobs they carry out like painting the stair case in the summer. 6- Security: a hit and mess. some are nice, others are awful. the building itself is not secure and attracts a lot of dodgy visitors. they have installed a new security system but still. 7- Traffic: HorrendousShow less

Maintenance is horrible, try getting a hold of them. more… Forget about having guests over, there are no parkings for visitors and you will be embarrassed once they give their views about any other building.

Nothing positive to say & much better options elsewhere. Standout lowlights - Staff/maintenance - 5 Days without water for 2 minute fix. Calling on reception 2-3 per day. See photo of health club shower I used for these days and this is the better one... - Outside pool is closed with more… no update on re-opening - was terrible anyway - Indoor health club and pool is awful and very dirty and run down as with rest of building - Questionable inhabitants and if you have lived in Dubai long enough you will know what I mean by that - probably one of the few buildings where you must lock your door as had 'visitors' mistakenly come to my door at strange hours.

Maintenance
Good size apartment with good layout. The bedrooms and the kitchen are big and spacious with a lot of sunlight. Depending on which side of the building the apartment is you can have spectacular views of eater the palm, marina or golf course. 5 minutes walk to Barasti and Marina more… Walk. The finishes are very poor, things go broke all the time. The maintenance is slow to react, and most of the time just mask the problem instead of fixing it. The elevators for higher floors haven't been working for over a year which creates a lot of congestion and long waiting times. The corridors are always dirty and smell bad. Security is unhelpful, doesn't stop strangers (people from outside use the pool). All in all if you are good at fixing stuff yourself, don't use the facilities, and want an affordable apartment in Marina it can be a good place. Show less

Lifts
Marina Pinnacle is probably in the best location of the Marina, as it is close to everything you need. The traffic is never an issue around here driving unless the build up of traffic for the delayed signals (blame the tram). The Building itself is shabby however the last 2 more… months they have began to do work internally paint, clean etc, which is a nice touch. The lifts are a bit of a joke and seem to work in their own mind. My apartment is a good size and is good value for the price I pay, my view is of the marina however that will soon be blocked by a tower block getting built, has shot up very quickly in 8 months living there. Gym is awful (mens). Indoor pool I refuse to use. Outdoor pool is perfect for myself as I do laps and is a good size, however from December-Feb with the no heating it was baltic. Will be moving out when my tenancy is up but I have not hated my time there like others have mentioned. But all in all a good value for money building.Show less

No Indian budget restaurants around with free home delivery
One of the dream locations to stay in Dubai. I am currently sharing my room with few other flatmates. Everything is nice. Only thing is I dont find budget restaurants around and hence compelled to cook my own food at times. Also, restaurants charge a lot for home delivery which more… is sometimes almost half of the bill value and hence not possible to order if I have to order only for myself. However, everything is worth for the view and the kind of people you see around. The best part is Marina Walk and JBR walk where you can spend lot of time to get relaxed after a long day at work.Show less

Gym separate ladies and men's with minimal basic equipment not useful opening times. Indoor pool was not available for use the entire time we lived there and the outdoor pool was awful, with debris from the building site next door which was never cleaned! The only positive thing I can say about our time here was the security was very good, very few restaurant / advertising flyers! I do not recommend living here... Show less

There is one more… downside, the construction around the building is non stop. In all, a good central location that is within reach of everything in the Marina.Show less

I live on the 41st floor and I have to say my view is amazing! The noise levels are so bad I can never sleep with the doors open or even watch tv with the doors open. There is a lot of construction in this area and when one lot finishes, they more… start with another. The maintenance on the building is really bad and it feels grubby and sticky. The residents refuse to put their garbage down the chute and as a result we have cockroaches. The ladies gym has very few machines and the kids break the ones that they do have. It feels so grubby that I don't know when they ever clean it. It is an amazing site and should really do a lot better!Show less

Noise of construction works around
The Tiger Tower has more than 65 floors. I was living in 65 floor. The view is amazing, from my balcony I saw Palm Jumeirah Island. The location is perfect as you can reach JBR in a just 5 minutes with the new open beach and nice walking area with more… a variety of restaurants and cafes. It takes only 1 minute to reach the 65 floor by elevator. The flat was really huge with a big hall and kitchen. Gym was amazing and huge with a lot of sport facilities. There is sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. Also the building has couple of swimming pools - including one outdoor and separate for children. The only issue that was annoying me it is the 24-7 construction works in that area. And even on the 65 floor you can still hear the noise unfortunately. Show less

The building is terribly maintained.
Living there in the third year of my contract. My landlord is nice. The building maintenance is terrible though. I have had severe mould problems since I moved in and it's steadily getting worse. However it is outside the apartment, so it's up to the building to maintain as opposed more… to my landlord, They keep painting over the mould and then it comes back within 2 to 3 weeks, as they don't fix the underlying problems. They have cleaned the outside windows twice since I moved in and the hallways often have leaks. The lifts are very badly maintained and, as I don't see the date checks that you see in other buildings for safety regulations, and they often break down. Why do I stay you may ask, On the plus side, it is a great location, my apartment is nice, with not great finishing's, but we've worked around it. The rent is reasonable. The gym is ok, but forget the outside pool, it's often covered in dust and no sun beds. The indoor pool is nice. Traffic is ok, once you get used to it. Within walking distance to shops, bars, restaurants, and the metro and the tram. Considering moving this year.Show less

The building itself from the inside looks old, the lobby is dark. There is mold everywhere, just a week ago they painted on top of the mold, AC is dripping in some areas. The elevators require some time to wait but they are all fully working, the staff is nice. more… But what is critical and the reason that I won't renew there most likely is the horrible smell of garbage in the hallways. The odor is absolutely revolting, and it makes me very embarrassed to my guests.Show less

Building maintenance
The location of the building is just perfect. Its 2 min walk to the marina walk and 5 mins drive to the beach and there are so many great restaurants near by. The traffic used to be bad a month back, but after the completion of the road and tram works more… its improved a bit but still not ideal. The parking facility is good and they have ample space. There are 3 swimming pools, one for ladies, one for men and one which is common. Both the ladies and men's pool are indoor and the common pool is outdoor. Now to the negatives. There is no guest parking. Even though the building is good, the maintenance isn't that great. The floors above 40 get moist up during the summer due to the humidity and the walls start sweating. The gym is below average and the swimming pool is decent but the water isn't changed as frequently as required. Overall a decent place to live.Show less

Rubbish room and chute smells out the building on a bad day.
Probably the worst maintained building in the Marina. Rubbish room and chute smells out the building on a bad day. Very badly planned kitchen area - very limited work surface. Swimming pool and health club dirty and badly maintained, Paint peeling off all over. Main entrance corridors are badly lit and dirty. Fire exits more… / stairs are filthy. No lifts or trolleys to help you get shopping or other goods to the apartment. Removal vehicles cannot go into the car park area so very tough to move in and out of with furniture. Show less

The high price of the rent
I like living here. It's right across from Marina Walk with restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and the metro station near by. The building is quiet with friendly security staff. It is a pet friendly building (which is great as I have a small dog), but there is nowhere in the area more… suitable to dog walk. Marina Walk have banned dogs. But JLT marina is near by (if you have a car; 5 minute drive) and it has a dog friendly marina that provides a long walk and even dog bags to scoop the poop if needs be. Despite that Marina Walk having banned dogs, it is a wonderful place to go for a run or a walk or even a cycle, with Dubai rental bike stands (opposite Spiney's) @ 15 dirham's per half hour rental. The apartments in the Pinnacle Tower are relatively spacious. The building has both indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a basic gym (male and female). The rent cost however, is every high and the building management costs are extortionate. The interior of the elevators are always in need of a clean and a sweep. The reception decor is very basic. The air con in the corridors are always set too low, with no way to manually adjust them. However the corridors themselves are kept swept and clean. The refuse system is handy, with a garbage disposal shoot on every floor. The traffic when leaving the building in the morning (for me it's 7:30-8am in the direction of Sheikh Zayed Road) is fine and rarely problematic. The traffic coming home in the evening (5:30-6:30pm) is moderate, with an average of 5- 10 minutes of congestion coming up towards my building (this might improve, however, when the new Metro Station construction is finished in November). All in all, a good place to live...if you can afford it!Show less

Our building is situated in a prime location with the Marina within walking distance. You can also walk to the Metro Station nearby are right next to a tram station. There is also A Spinneys and a Carrefour within walking distance.

Swimming pool
The of the building location is perfect and there is rarely any traffic here. 5 min walk to Marina Walk with all the restaurants and cafes and about 20 min walk to JBR beach. There are two big supermarkets within 5 min walk. The building has got all the facilities more… including gym, big indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a couple of ping pong tables. Although the outdoor pool is not on a sunny side of the tower, which could be disappointing. Apartments are of a decent size and not too bad finishing. The view is amazing if you get the apartment in the front side of the building or the right side of it. In first case you'll get the whole view of Marina Walk and partially sea view and Palm Jumeirah. The right side of the building gives a great sea view. Overall Pinnacle tower is good place to live in especially considering that the prices are lower than most of the buildings in the area.Show less

Negatives
Marina Pinnacle is a not so nice building. The facilities like Gym, pool & common areas have not been upgraded or maintained in a very long time.
I currently live in Marina Pinnacle Tower. I have to give the building itself a very low rating as the GYM, Indoor & Outdoor swimming pools are in bad condition. In addition to that they are constructing another building right next to ours, so the dust goes into the pool more… & on my balcony! However, My apartment is on the 52nd floor & I have a great view overlooking the Marina Promenade. The furnishings aren't the best quality but its not that bad. Bathroom is very spacious also & Kitchen was installed new when I moved in. Whilst Ive seen better buildings in Marina, ie Princess Tower, Elite Tower & 23 Marina, im comfortable in Pinnacle. Would like it if the common area had more maintenance & an upgrade though!Show less
