Best side of the Marina

Hi guys,

Earlier this year we stayed at Silverene apartments (located very close to Marina Mall) for two weeks with our two young children. Had a fantastic stay and consequently are looking to rebook for the beginning of next year.

The lure of going back to the same part of Dubai is the convenience of having a safe walkway with supermarkets, restaurants, bars, play areas, all so close to just wander down to.

To give a bit of variety we are thinking about the other side of the Marina (Iris Blue or similar) but I'm a little concerned, that from what I remember, there was not very much on the other side, with regards to restaurants, bars etc.

Just wondered if anyone could let me know what it's like over on the 'other side' and if it would be of any benefit/detriment to us?

I've had a good look about online and I can't seem to find any other area that offers such a large pedestrianised area with so many amenities, however if you feel I've overlooked somewhere, any suggestions would be greatly received :-)

Thanks so much for reading

Halo x

Hi Halo - from one Marina resident to a potential visitor, you would not go wrong booking at the Iris blu. It is still being developed with the Marina walkway near by being developed but that should not be a problem for a short-term visit.

If within your budget, have a look at The Address Dubai Marina which has direct access to the Marina Walk via Marina Mall. There are mini-playgrounds under the bridges there and a mini-funfair is normally available to enjoy. Or, try the Byblos of which there is a playground and park just between the Dubai Marina Yacht Club and Jumeirah Lake Towers Metro Station. Plenty of restaurants around that area too. I know this is probably going to be similar to what you experienced at the Silverene but that area really is one of the best for amenities around the Marina.

Until such time as the tram is up and running, I'd stay here.
