Sliding doors, fire alarms.
Downsides: Apartments are small - among the smallest in the Marina but the building owner still tries to apply the RERA rental calculator based on average apartments in the Marina. Finishing in kitchen is awful, all other rooms are OK. Fire alarm goes off constantly, the smoke detector in each apartment is directly more… above the stove which seems to be the main reason. The sliding doors in each apartment are not fitted/sealed properly which means every time there's a sand storm, your whole apartment ends up full of sand. It also means the doors leak lots of sound so you hear every loud exhaust or honk of the horn or call to prayer. Building management acknowledged it's a problem but have shown no desire to actually fix it. We've had to tape up our doors now. Parking spaces are tiny, especially in the basement where a lot of spaces have a solid wall on one side meaning it's impossible to park and open both doors of anything larger than a Yaris. One of the few buildings in the Marina to be exclusively supplied by Etisalat for TV/internet. Good things: Maintenance can be very responsive but anything more than a minor problem will probably not be fixed properly. Marina facing apartments have a great view. Easy access from SZR with minimal traffic most of the time - although if you want to drive elsewhere in the Marina, you need to go over to JLT to do a u-turn now. Security guys are responsive, friendly and usually effective. Gym, sauna, pool area, kids room, resident's lounge are all nice and well maintained. The ladies on the concierge desk are mostly helpful and responsive, Leah especially. One or two of the others can have a bit of an attitude problem sometimes. Reception area is nice, has a hotel type of feel to it.Show less

Pros and Cons
I personally love the building, from its facilities to its management, its great. Swimming pool is a bit small but does the job, and the gym as well. The building is secure and maintained properly. My view is the only reason why I chose this apartment [whole marina view], however, more… the price you're paying is a lot compared to the size of the two bedroom apartments. The only problems I have with the building are how strict they are in terms of guests parking in the building and how the maintenance company kind of invades privacy at times. Very strict on smoking, they told me I would get fined for smoking in my own apartment which was ridiculous because I believe its your own space, you're renting the apartment out - you shouldn't be reminded or told such things because that makes it seem like its some sort of upper class dorm. They're also very strict on noise complaints if music is being played when guests are over because the other apartment tenants get disturbed - the walls aren't that thick. If you're a social person looking to have your friends over, you will be consistently bothered about causing noise and also have problems if your guests have cars and would like to park in the building - there aren't any nearby parkings close to the building. It's a great apartment for families to live in in terms of being very secure, maintained properly, but the only thing to worry about is the size of the apartments and price being paid. Show less

Building management
I have been living in Orra Marina since it was open. I was the fourth tenant to enter the building, so I've been through all the settling process and need to confess it improved significantly, but there are still some basic things happening even after almost 3 years. View and more… location are outstanding and now with Dubai Tram around it is even better, but building maintenance team lacks a lot and building management is completely useless. Not sure if it is only me, but I live in a floor with only 4 apartments and from 3 neighbors I have, two are completely annoying and no matter how often I complain to building management, nothing is done to change.Show less

Orra Marina Tower is superb for the younger audience with awesome decor and tower facilities - I would recommend it to anyone. The apartment is beautiful and build so nicely, gym and swimming pools are perfect with scenery and manageable locations etc. The full building is pet friendly and Orra supplies more… dog walking and animal sitting whilst you are away.
