Construction site making very high noise and closing all the view of the building soon
Walking possibilities & Community
Noise & view at construction side
Nice building and nice community, however the landlords are asking for high rental prices which is not really justified especially on the construction side. Do not take from the construction side. Strong noise. The view is getting blocked soon for this whole side. Another bad thing is that 1BR don't have more… balcony. Sometimes elevator is slow because it's a high rise building.Show less

MAG218 2 Bedroom
Size of the apartment
Access to the parking
The apartment & building is really nice, the apartment layout is good, with very little 'dead' space in the apartment. Fixtures & fittings are pretty good, with plenty of built in storage in both bedrooms and kitchen. Facilities are good, pool deck is a good size and the pool is more… always at the appropriate temperature, the sunbed cushions could do with replacing as many are soiled from the weather. The gym has all the necessary equipment. Easy access to local amenities and restaurants and very convenient if you like Marina / JBR areas.Show less

Poor finishing
Space and location
AC controls/water heaters controls only one control of each
Spacious, short walking distance to tram& metro easy access to Sheikh Zayed Road. Once you move in you start facing troubles with the finishing, drains, water pressure and the list goes on and on.

Two Bedrooms, High Floor, MAG218 Tower
The size of the apartment, the balcony and the swimming pool.
MAG218 is ideally situated within a five minute walk of the Dubai Marina and Marina Walk restaurants. It has direct road connections to SZR and Al Sufouh road as well as very good links to the other nearby roads, E44, E311, E611. The nearest metro station is Dubai Marina (now more… renamed DAMAC) which is approximately a 15 minute walk. The new Tram line further increases access to public transport as the line passes directly outside the main entrance to the building and the nearest station (Marina Towers) is a mere five minute walk away with a link to the Metro at DAMAC station. The apartments are very large by most standards. The two double bedrooms are each approximately 5m x 5m, each with ensuite bathroom, There is a large open plan area which offers many different options for configuration as dining, seating areas etc and a good sized kitchen with plenty of storage cupboards. Inside there is also a store room and a guest bathroom. A/C is included with this apartment and is very efficient and well maintained. There is also a very large balcony, suitable for lounging, eating or simply taking in the views of the marina and out towards the Burj al Arab. There is a community floor with a number of multifunction rooms and an adequately equipped gym which is free for building residents. Add to this a full 25m x 10m swimming pool with views of the marina towers and I would highly recommend this building to anyone looking to rent in this area. There are a number of building projects ongoing at the moment and on completion some of the views may be restricted.Show less

Pretty good deal given the rates of some places close by..
Location, public transport links
Parking issues, dodgy landlord
As with anywhere around the marina, MAG218 has become significantly more expensive of late and it set to become more so in the future. 1 bed apartments that you could easily get for 70K are now 100+ and 2 beds 40-50% more. That said, the facilities are good and the more… on site team very efficient. There was an issue with parking when I was there due to a lack of guest parking and too many people having second cars that were not registered. Traffic in this area of the marina has been bad but is not a lot better as the tram works have been completed. Gym and pool are good, transport links now are good - if you want to head out in the evening on a Thursday or Friday around the Marina/JBR, gone are the days of needing cabs. Very convenient for SZR and a good location. You will be somewhat sheltered from the construction noise if you have a good side to the building, so if you can haggle a deal, its a reasonable building to consider. Although I had a good deal in the first year there, the landlord tried to put the rent up from 70 to 85, (RERA said no increase due) and the agent was completely complicit in this, plus wanted 5% again to arrange the new contract. Same dishonesty happens in other places, but I now see the same agent advertising several properties in the building, so make sure they have RERA registration and you get Ejari sorted.Show less

Money well spent!
View and space
Business of the marina
If you are looking for a spacious apartment with breathtaking views then this is it! We have been living in mag 218 for 3 years now and never had any hassles getting in or out of the building. Walking distance to the beach and Marina walk. Amazing view of the more… marina, Emirates golf course and Media city. We fell in love with this building in particular because of the spacious rooms. Even the one bedroom apartments are amazing! Show less

Mag 218 Dubai Marina
Big sleeping rooms
The unavailability of the common services of the building, balcony, pool, gym... and the ignorance toward the young residents - children.
I live in Mag since 3 years. I have a child. Children and pets are not allowed in any the of the common areas of the building, and those are just the gym and the pool. These are mostly impossible to be used by the working residents due to TOO more… SHORT open hours. Mothers and children are banished from the gym without any respect by the maintenance crew. Since the beginning of 2014 the parking levels never been washed, it's the policy of the new maintenance company. Very bad service, the dirt is taking over. NO PLAY AREA FOR CHILDREN. NO LOUNGE FOR GROWNUPS as promised. The construction sites around the building are never ending... keep looking for a friendlier tower in Marina... most of them are much better.Show less
