Building management and security
This building has the potential to be one of the best in the area, if only security and building management were improved. It is manned by security guards on a 24/7 basis - daytime they are unfriendly, however the night shift guards are very friendly and welcoming. The cleanliness of more… the building needs to be improved, although I have seen more cleaning teams coming in on a regular basis recently. Parking is free for residents, and in fact, anyone due to the lack of barriers. While this is great for guests visiting, it is a bit unnerving that anyone can enter the building and go up to any floor - the doors to parking levels do not require entry passes. Our two bedroom apartment is excellent in terms of view, space and so much natural light due to the floor-to-ceiling windows, and outside space, with its three balconies. The large balcony/covered terrace is the selling point. Although as a result, the second bedroom is much smaller - a better compromise would have been a slightly smaller terrace. The traffic is noisy, and acquires some getting used to - especially on the weekends when the road to JBR is gridlocked for hours, or during the early morning hours between 2 and 5am when every man and his Lamborghini come out to play. A speed camera on that corner by Grosvenor House would be very welcomed. Location-wise, this apartment is fantastic, due to the ease of walking to the beach, JBR The Walk, Dubai Marina and Dubai Media City. There are amenities literally on your front door. Show less

The view for sure
The upkeep & management of the building
It's a great place as it just misses the JBR traffic, its completely free parking - although one barrier doesn't even work so no need for a clicker either at the moment. Security during the day are unfriendly to say the least, but the night guards are great! There is more… 0 maintenance, so get stocking up on all outside maintenance numbers just in case. The layout's a tad silly to say the least - we have more outdoor space than indoor! But have to say the outdoor terrace was a massive appeal. Get a corner unit facing marina and sea - it's unique. Although traffic WILL take some getting used to noise wise. It's overall a great place to live in the marina as you can walk everywhere :)Show less

Overall opinion
I love the location that is about it
Maintenance and security
This building is very well located, but the maintenance and security is so poor and unprofessional. They do not understand that our safety is important the parking gate is always open for valet parking or other reasons for the restaurant under the building which is not an excuse they should more… have an access card to enter. Every parking floor is not secured there is not a card code to enter so anyone can enter the building at all time. Security has no phone to call them to in the building they should have a land line on their desk. Building has no lights it is actually scary at night and it is not clean at all. The pool is beyond disgusting although they can make it nice because it is pretty big.Show less

View, Location
The maintenance issues
The location, view and layout are the highlights of this building. However don't be fooled by this first impression. Unfortunately, this building has some major challenges to overcome when it comes to common areas and community facilities. The pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room have been offline for over 6 months. more… We had to pay the maintenance guy to replace the light bulbs in the common hallway (not even our apartment) on our floor - something management doesn't seem to be bothered with - some hallways on the other floors are still pitch black. The cut down on maintenance has lowered the quality of the apartment building as a result a lot of tenants have left. Be very prudent when signing a lease here unless the rent is much lower when compared to other buildings in the area. Show less

The view, the location, the restaurants, the beach
Maintenance, Gym, Hidden Fees, Building Management Company
I'm enjoying living in Dubai Marina. I am close to work (Media City) and have spectacular views of the Marina, the Burj Al Arab, and the beach. Most of my friends live in Marina and there are many restaurants and lounges which is very convenient. I also enjoy living close more… to the beach and walking everywhere. The Marina is also great for jogging. I find the apartments quite overpriced and a bit smaller compared to apartments elsewhere in the Gulf and in Canada. The maintenance in my building is absolutely terrible and some of the security guards are very rude. The real estate company / landlord I am renting from try to charge as much as they can for everything. It costs 2,000 Dirhams if you lose your original access card, and they never agree to pay for any of the maintenance (even when it's 2,000 Dirhams). There are a lot of surprise expenses; the company charged me 2,000 Dirhams just to renew my contract (administration fees) which I find ridiculous. You end up paying for quite a bit more than you would expect. I usually pay 700 for DEWA every month as well. However, all in all, I'm very happy with my apartment and the location, just not with the landlord, the hidden fees, or the building mainenance.Show less

Swimming pool - closed from June 2014, Building - very dirty, No maintenance, Traffic
I have been living in Sky View Tower for more than two years now. At first, building was really good - clean, with great facilities, with not much traffic in the street and no restaurant in GF. Today, the situation is completely different. Rent has doubled, swimming pool closed from June more… 2014 till date, building is very dirty, no maintenance is being done. Exercise equipment in gym is broken & dirty, half of the lights do not work there. We faced many problems this year - power cuts, water cuts, AC did not work many times. The restaurant in GF has its storage on P1 level, therefore garage is not clean at all (flooring, doors). Since the building management has changed, you do not have a proper contact to whom you can address your complaints. Show less

Good location for marina traffic
Lack of maintenance - Pool empty - Parking
Lack of maintenance - Building needs fixing - Pool empty for 6 months - Dirty windows only cleaned once a year. Parking issues due to Shisha Bar using up all residential parking. Not worth current prices.

Maintenance, security, Saroja restaurant
Been in the building three years, amazing location - THE WORST building we have ever lived in. Limited air-conditionding as only one chiller our of four are working, no proper parking controls in place, no swimming pool facilities since June 2014 and no sign of it being rectified, gym more… facilities are all broken, awful restaurant called Saroja in the bottom of the building which obstructs the residents parking daily. All in all the worst building for maintenance, cleanliness, security in the Marina by far and is NOT value for money unless you have a decent landlordShow less

Location, size of the apartment, balcony, swimming pool
Car park, maintenance
Building is clean most of the time, however it use to be much better. There is a big concern regarding the building utilities bills : every 6 months or so you will have a notification in the lift to warn people that the water or electricity will be cut as the more… bills were not paid, or that the owners didn't paid the housing fees. Nothing never happened however the situation is a bit stressful as you never know what can happened. However, the most important point is the car park. There is nothing to say about the car park itself, we have enough bays for the entire building .. well actually we used to! Since we are sharing the bays with the restaurant located on the ground floor, i'll say that you are lucky if on a Thursday night you manage to find one single space for your own car! Whenever you come back to work in the evening there's always gonna have a line downstairs to reach the car park, valets aren't even nice and they won't hesitate to take the last space. Of course they will move the car if they have to, but still, who wants to check every level of the car park, to pull over, go at the reception, ask them to call the valet to let him know he has to move the car and.... etc, etc... Once in a lifetime is fine, but having to wait and to do it everyday is not fine at all. To end the story on a better note, i'll say that the size of the apartment is descent, especially the balcony size, and you have an easy access to JBR plus a few supermarket around. Show less
