I booked 3 apartments for a week for me and my family in the week before Christmas. We have travelled extensively and have a philosophy that a holiday should be a holiday i.e. Accommodation should be as comfortable as home (we live in a large 5 bed roomed home). After much research I selected these apartments based on size and location. Turned out to be a perfect choice. We stayed in a 1 bed roomed apartment for my adult son; 2 bed roomed for my daughter, husband and 15 month baby; 3 bedrooms for me and my wife - on the assumption that because
We'd be spending time together as a family in our apartment we'd need more space. As it turned out this was unnecessary as all the apartments had large lounges and kitchens and the bedrooms are spacious and well appointed. The location suited us ( with a baby) well. It's quiet, easy walk to a selection of supermarkets and many restaurant options; being rights on the marina there are lovely and interesting walking options; the views are stunning and the staff were charming. Our fight arrived in Dubai at 5.30am so I booked the night before as well to ensure our apartments would be available when we arrived.
The faculties are excellent; gym, squash court, swimming pool, sauna.
There are many boating options available on the quayside. But this location will not suit people keen to spend time in the sea ........ It's a fair walk to the beach.
Alcoholic drinks are not available in any of the restaurants or shops and we wandered over to the Marriott Hotel a couple of times for sundowners on the 52nd floor (about 10 min walk along the marina).
The metro station is an easy close walk ...just a few minutes and that gives one access to most of the interesting sights and places to see in Dubai.
I've stayed in Dubai 5 times previously and in future would only stay at the Dubai Marina and not in Dubai itself. If one wanted to be close to the sea I'd consider options on Jumeirah beach.

Our family of 5 stayed here at the end of September for 3 nights in a 3 bedroom apt. We had car hire and parked under the hotel.
Negatives - no wifi in the apartments, only in reception. This was the only hotel we stayed in that during our 8 week trip which did not have wifi in rooms. They need to fix this and get with the time. I found the lady on reception to be quite hostile during booking in and out. She obviously does not know what customer service is. Also they did not thoroughly do their room check out with previous guests. We were told we had broken a melamine shelf in one of the cupboards in a bedroom when we hadn't even used the cupboards and had lived out of our suitcases. They held us up for 20 mins on checkout before finally believing us that it was damage from previous people. There was a problem with the drainage system in ensuite. The shower would not drain and we would shower with water around our ankles. Then halfway through the shower the toilet would gurgle and the water would drain away leaving a bad sewerage stench coming up from the drain. I reported this on checkout only to get a rude response again from the lady on reception. Obviously it was her policy to ignore it and blame it on customers instead of getting it fixed.

Positives - the apartments are huge with gorgeous views looking out over the Marina. We really enjoyed relaxing in the apartment and watching some movies. The apt was serviced daily. The apartment is close to a supermarket and the metro. Metro system is great. Easy to get to all the shopping centres.

Stayed for a week. Large apartment, they spent allot on furnishing it but not finished well. The kitchen ventilator exhaust was inside the cupboard. The appliances had European sockets when the apartment had UK electrical sockets. The holes in the ceiling around the light fixtures, cables for lighting taped and lying on the floors. There was a smell in a bathroom so we called service. They came with a refresher can and sprayed it! They did not look at what the reason was. The price advertised was less 20% than what I had to pay. They added service charge and city tax, that was bit deceiving. You have a high speed Internet cable which is good, but no wifi router, for that you have to pay 100 AED a day! Or go to the lobby. This is the 21st century, wifi is in every thing you do. By the way just a tip ,we just set up a hot spot using a laptop so hotel management is better off adding wifi as standard feature and add an extra 50AED a night, it would make you more money.

Location is very good though.

Warm greeting on arrival and check in was painless. The apartments are large, modern design and furnished to reasonable quality. Over looks marina with a small shallow pool. About 15 minutes from the 'Walk' and close to supermarket. Weather was perfect in mid April and nice walk through the marina at night.

My family & I stayed for 6 days, we're 7 persons and I booked apartment with 3 bedrooms, it was very comfortable and has really nice living room Marina view plus nice balcony. there's two supermarkets just 2 minutes walking from the hotel. also the marina walk with penalty of cafes and restaurants just within steps. the issue that we just had it. there was some noisy sound comes with AC when we use the water in washroom, but I told them they came and fix it immediately. in general we enjoy our staying there and definitely if we decide to come back to Dubai we will stay there again.

I stayed with friends at the Marina Hotel in February of 2012, we stay one week at the Marina, then another week in Fujairah at a friend timeshare.
I also returned to Dubai in October 2012 and stay at the Courtyard by Marriott - Green Community, very nice location, a
little far from downtown, but hotel had a free shuttle. Stayed one week in Dubai and left for Istanbul,
Turkey the first week of November 2012. Stay at the Courtyard by Marriott in Istanbul, hotel
was far from the historic downtown area, but we were able to go on tours which was very
nice. I would recommend finding a hotel closer to the historical sites.

This apart hotel has a very important advantage. The location. Is amazing to walk one block and meet the great Dubai Marina. Apartments are very big and the distribution is very comfortable. It's not a hotel, so service is not their strength, anyway they could have better hosts. They're not kind and that's not nice. The public areas are very clean, however the apartments could be cleaner, specially the balconies. For the price, this is an excellent option to stay in Dubai.
