The size of the kitchen and seperate layout from living room
No storage, nowhere to put mops and buckets etc
Our building management team are really excellent - very helpful and courteous. The neighbourly atmosphere is good. No real traffic in the mornings, you're straight onto SZR.

Gym
None
The Building is one of the nicest in the Marina, definitely in this area of Mina Seyahi -- particularly, the pool, gym, and maintenance stand out. The rooms themselves that I've seen are very well maintained and still seem new, and ideal would be to get the upper floor xx04 more… rooms, which look out onto the Palm and have generally great views. Finally, quality of people in the building is generally higher than others -- mostly young 30s, not too many kids, etc.Show less

A nice place to live
Great facilities (gym, pools, jacuzzi, games room)
Chiller fees, lift reliability, lack of guest parking
Security and front of house make this a nice environment and community to live in. One of the better buildings in the Marina, it can be relatively expensive and there will always be cheaper places to live in the vicinity. However Elite has great facilities and is finished to a more… high standard. Downsides are the high chiller fees, the majority of lifts being out of order at some point (hardly ever all working at the same time), lack of guest parking and building management's continued attempts to try and manage not just the building, but everyone in it with a series of diktats/notices/demands...at least they care I suppose!

Beautiful sea view killed by music from Barasti.
View and location
Music from Barasti
Elite Residence is very nice place to live. We had beautiful sea view on high floor. The building is nice and well maintained with one of the best gym in the area. Unfortunately our whole experience was miserable due to loud music and noise coming out of Barasti. This is more… very apparent during the weekend when Barasti stops playing only late in the night - and you can hear the music fully inside your apartment. So if you are not loud music fan, stay away and find other place....Show less

Location, location, location!
The traffic because this is the hottest area
Elite Residence is one of only 4 Buildings that are directly in front of the Palm and the boats in the Marina. If you have a front or side view there is never a dull moment out the window. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Parachutes and planes from fly more… Dubai, boat races, yachts, helicopters, fireworks are all daily or weekly events. The building has a nice mix of young to middle-aged professionals who are generally friendly and we have many gym enthusiasts! The gym is great and well maintained with all the updated equipments, tv's and view of Marina. With 2 indoor pools and 1 outside (with a great view of the sea and Palm) you have many choices. There is also a spa with jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. As well, a games room and childrens playroom. The lobby is modern with lovely tasteful marble. Security and cleaning staff are well trained and friendly. I enjoy living here as it feels more like a community. Management hosted parties for NYE and also for Earthday with movies on the lawn by the pool. This is the place to be!!Show less

Nice to live in, but comes with some important cons.
Cleanliness and Location
Sense of oppression
Elite Residence is in a strategic location in the Marina, very close to SZR and food and drink outlets. It offers a clean environment with good communication links including the recently opened Dubai Tram just outside. The external views can vary from the Palm and the Marina, to Media City more… and a cluster of tower blocks. The facilities are great when open and the community is ethnically diverse. Fire safety is highly efficient with recent DCD drills, clear evacuation plans and consistent testing of alarms and systems. The on site office timings are based on a survey of what is convenient for the residents, a favourable touch that other towers do not do. Facilities include Gym, Games Room, Swimming Pool x3, Spa, Childrens Play Room. Although Elite Residence management attempt to keep an efficient working order, it is over the top and oppressive. There is a new policy every other week that is supposedly compulsory to abide by, for example, informing management when you are vacating your apartment for a prolonged period of time. There is zero guest parking and there is no flexibility in letting anyone without a keycard in. As tenants must maintain their own apartments from now on, when workmen arrive they have to park illegally or inconveniently as they are refused entry with their vehicle. "Community Rules" are referred to constantly, although they have never been issued on mass or personally since I moved in. Petty rules such as using a slow service elevator when walking your pet is mandatory, claiming safety and convenience. Management will also not hesitate to remove your golf clubs / other items from YOUR parking space, violating respect for private property, unless you comply with their imperatives immediately, again citing community rules and stating only bikes are allowed in the excess buffer space. Some apartments suffer structural flaws in times of high wind, where a large vibration droning noise is created. Maintenance have confirmed this has happened in other apartments and is only fixed naturally by the wind calming or opening a window, often to the louder noise of the outside environment. The swimming pools are clean the majority of the time however are small. Personally observing the lack of attention of lifeguards at the time, I attempted to locate a supervisor which was non existent, raising concerns regarding the safety of pool users. Overall Elite Residence is a great place to live if you are a busy working person, however I would not recommend for people who have taken into account the above.Show less

Amenities
Parking and humidity
The bldg amenities are superb. Two issues though: 1. Humidity inside the apartment because there is no AC in the hallways of the bldg 2. You can never have guests over because there is noway they can park inside or even outside the bldg

Elite Residence Apartments
Cleanliness, security, facilities
The very small space
Beautiful building with spacious reception area, very nicely decorated, great amenities, 2 indoor swimming pools (one for ladies only), 1 outdoor swimming pool. Clean water but small sized swimming pools. Sauna, Jacuzzi, steam facilities. Excellent Gym, Leisure area with Table tennis, air-hockey table, mini-soccer, pool table. Good area more… around the pool suitable for entertaining & Barbecues. Cleanliness is perfectly maintained. All-in-all would not wish for a better building. Although my apartment is very small and has no nice view at all (no sea-view and only facing other towers), a very tiny balcony that fits an air-dryer only.Show less

Location, Management, Prestiege building , Facilities
TAV building being built at the back.
The best location in the Marina, right next to Le Reve, on the walk, opposite the beach , opposite the tram line (once done), great access onto SZR. Gym facilities are amazing, good games room, nice feel to lobbies. Maintenance of common areas are always tip top. 3rd tallest residential tower in more… the world Outdoor Pool is a little on the small side No guest parking Mens indoor pool and spa is big The community management at Elite make this tower a decent place to live with someone always around to help or call upon. Their knowledge of the building , open office door in the building and attitude also make it a great place to be. At times their hands are tied to what they are able to do however Hannah and her team put in the effort which is what counts . Conceirge is onsite 24/7 - forgot keys once and they were there ready with numbers and helping. Show less
