Noise nonstop
Fire alarm. Noise. Noise. Noise.
The fire alarm goes off several times a week, any time of day or night. Has been happening since 2015. No one ever knows why. So don't get a high floor because you'll have to evacuate more than once. Intercoms only work one way, and you can't call reception because more… they haven't fixed them. The noise from drivers is constant, honking any time day or night. Traffic is pretty bad to come home. The location is great but the quality of life you'll get is very poor. Can't wait to move out. Show less

Marina Quay review
Finish and Size
If you like peace and quiet this place is not for you. Forget about sleeping during weekend nights, you will hear honks for hours from inconsiderate drivers at 4AM in the morning. I can assure you you will be able to guess the make of the car from its honk more… after a month... If you are lucky and can fall a sleep you will sure be woken up by the false fire alarm and have to go downstairs to find out it is false alarm. No to mention the kids playing football and screaming under your apartment at the promenade. Don't believe me, go out on twitter and search for apartment name, you will see people living in these buildings posting videos and tweeting all night about the noise calling police for help.. If you are as unlucky as myself you will get a parking at basement 3, adds minutes to your ETA. Apartment's size and finish are good, security and concierge are very helpful. Pool and GYM are not the best but better than other places we have seen. View is amazing. JBR beach is just walking distance. If noise level was lower this would be the best place to live in Dubai, but it is a nightmare for us and we are looking forward to contract end so we can move out to a quieter place. Show less

Love My Home
The view
Too comfortable, might never want to leave
Marina Quays is one of the best residences in Dubai with the absolute best view of the Marina. The reception area, staff and facilities are top notch and living here is worth every penny. Staying for a while!

Marina Quays East Tower
View, garden and the brightness of the house
Guest parking is mostly full
There are 3 towers in Marina Quays which East tower is middle one. The noise is not disturbing but it really depends on which side of the building you are living. The numbers ending with 10 and 01 ( ex. 110 and 101) have great view of the lake, marina more… mall and bridge. The garden which is on the 3rd floor is perfect specially if you have a pet because usually people take their dogs there to play together. It also has a multi functional room and Yoga room and people are free to book it anytime they want to. There is also a playing room for kids.Show less

Marina Quays West - Great value but could offer more
Apt size and location
The tram construction has been terrible but soon to be resolved
I am a current resident of Marina Quays. I will say the building is maintained very well and the location is unbeatable - you are directly on the Marina promenade and behind the JBR Towers. 2 minute walk to The Walk. What I will say is that the air conditioning more… has been an issue since I moved in. I have reached out several times to the maintenance group and was told that the parts previously used are no longer available and they cannot guarantee that the AC will be fixed (it currently outputs warm air and cannot be regulated easily). What is missing also is a proper door man service. While the security guards are friendly and kind, it is expected that for a grand building and the staff on site, that there's a bit more help (ie with bags, keeping packages at the front desk, etc). Seems it's a very handoff policy. They did just install a new laundry service in the lobby which is very convenient. Overall it's a great living experience but it would be nice if they took it up a notch. Show less

Traffic - due to tram roadworks, but I'm sure that will improve soon.
