JA Ocean View Hotel is nicely located at SW end of The Walk at Dubai Marina. There is a wide selection of restaurants and small shops along The Walk, more are being opened. Public beach, which is in a very good condition, is about 150 meters away from the hotel. They are just finishing a road work, which seems to be an underground parking place, and currently that is disturbing the access to the beach a bit.
Hotel itself is clean and well maintained. Even those standard beach view rooms are comfortable and nicely sized. Bed offers very good night sleep but there can be some noise coming from the corridor through a door. Bathroom is working fine and there is enough room in it too.
Breakfast offers wide selection of items and service is working fine even when all tables are full. It is easy to recommend to include the break to your room. Pool is not that big but it functions perfectly and we had no problems to find seats there. Hotel also offers about 30 min transportation to and back from the JA Jebel Ali beach hotel few times a day but personally I liked the public beach next to hotel more, even without the services. It should be noted that you get a public beach set from the hotel that includes sunshade, couple of beach maps and towels.
Even when the metro station is not that far away from hotel you will end up using taxi instead. Metro is not that much cheaper and it is slower than taking the taxi. Same goes with the bus transportation offered by the hotel to shopping malls etc as you get there faster and more conveniently with cheap taxis.
JA Ocean View hotel is very good and affordable choice to stay in Dubai. Stayed for 5 nights.
