Unnecessary security measures and bad design
This is a lovely building, but the excessive security means that it is a frustrating place to live. Having to use the access card for the lifts makes even having guests round difficult and carrying shopping etc. There is never any free parking for guests either. The exit from more… the car park is difficult to exit without damaging your wheels to get to the card reader as it is on a concave bit of a bend and set away from the kerb. Silly design features like there not being a direct exit to the pool is frustrating too as you have to go out the front of the building through a carpark down stairs and up stairs to get to it. I feel like the neighbour above me is "big foot" as they are either so heavy footed or the ceiling doesn't block out the noise. If the lifts did not require passes and it wasn't practically impossible to get work men into your flat this would be a much better place to live. Silly things have having to do a NOC for every work man / delivery would make me think of leaving next year. The gym could be improved by having a better selection of free weights and cable machines. It's ok if you just want to do cardio.Show less

Overpriced for what it is.
Size and layout.
Parking and inaccessibility. A/C fees.
Perfect example of good idea with poor execution. Apartments are very spacious and could be luxurious if it wasn't for extremely poor workmanship. Got in the new apartment, after 3 years of light usage (professional couple travelling most of the time and eating outside) it's tearing apart. Water & drainage more… pipes burst occasionally. Access cards in elevators don't work most of the time. Parking is a huge issue as most apartments have only 1 designated parking space and there is no additional parking for guests. Very noisy due to construction of the mall, speed humps in front of the building and elephant neighbors from above. Fire alarm goes off often. Moisture build up (mold) is noticeable. Limited shopping and dining choices. Most neighbors Arab / European. Show less

Review of Marina Residences 3, Palm Jumeirah
The Views
No access to basic grocery / convenient store
Pros: Very nice, quiet 14 story building. Spacious bedrooms and living room. All apartments come c/w maids room. Amazing views of the Marina or The Atlantis (depending on what side of the building your apartment is facing, and how high you are). Good facilities like swimming pool & gym. Walking more… distance to Palm Jumeirah Park (jogging / walking track). Cons: Access to basic groceries is difficult - closest place would be either Carrefour at MOE, or Waitrose at Marina Mall. Party hall in building not very useful (no kitchen, no toilets, not furnished).Show less

The view, pool and size of the apartment
Bumps on the palm and lack of visitor parking
This is a great place to escape the fast paced city life! Your views are truly breathtaking looking out towards the Palm and the boats. Shared ammenities consist of a stunning large sparkling swimming pool and beautifully manicured gardens. There is also a great state-of-the-art gym with full facilities and more… floor to ceiling windows overlooking the pool as you workout. There are always taxis, the area is very safe, neighbours are lovely, the only possible downside of this is total lack of visitor parking or a 2nd car space... apart from that out of all property I ever saw in Dubai (and I have seen many) this stands out as the best place to live and enjoy The Palm at its very best.Show less

Best flats on the Palm
The location & the overall quality was top notch.
Daily Fire alarms
Beautiful flat with quality finishing. The 2 bedroom flats on the second floor have a bonus super sized terrace to enjoy the beautiful views of the Marina or island. The wood floor in the master bedroom scratches very easily & the fire alarms tend to go off several more… times a day/night as they are very sensitive. We enjoyed our 3 years of Marina Residence living. Show less

Marina Residences 2 bedroom
Pool and apartment size.
Parking and damp
The apartment was spacious with a lovely sized balcony. The appliances were of a good quality. When we moved in there were wires hanging from the ceiling and we were told we would need to put a light fitting there, had to arrange for bare wires to be 'blanked off' more… in the kitchen when we moved in. Damp became a major issue and with parking becoming an everyday problem (police were admitted to the private underground parking to issue parking tickets to all vehicles not parked in a designated parking place!). Only one parking place for the apartment and absolutely nowhere else to park second vehicle... These issues along with a heavy increase in rent forced us to move after 3 years in the apartment. Landlord very unhelpful, damp, came back from 2 weeks holiday to an apartment full of mold, had to throw away bedding and launder soft furnishings and clean apartment at own cost.Show less

Marina Residence 2 bedrooms
The layout of the apartment
Extremely lack of public transport
I loved the layout and interior of my apartment, its very cozy and spacious for the family of 3 adults and 1 kid. Environment is family friendly too. The only problem is public transport services is quite limited here.

Quiet, family block
The location and views
The noise from the poor sound insulation
Home to new families and couples, Marina Residence is a very nice place to live. With spacious balcony's and views of either Burj Al Arab or Atlantis. We love living in this block due to its easy access from SZR, no traffic, no hassle! The only complaint would be the more… sound insulation, we hear the upstairs neighbors walking and the garbage shoot in the hallway! Show less
