We stayed for five nights in the new Dubai Marina which has been warmly recommended by friends. Location is nice and with a room overlooking the Marina, the stay is perfect. MRs Lula from Customer
Service welcome us in advance. Arrangements were agreed. Room 903 was waiting for us. A little bit of a mess exists at front desk though. My request for an airport drop was registered but booked with a full day excursion fee. SO my bill had to be corrected. Pity for a hotel of this category and considering the pre-arrangement.
Driver for airport drop was ok but he appeared to be the first time at DWC/Al Maktoum airport. He took a deviation and missed the departure area twice. Sometimes, it is better when you can give directions.
Beyond that, we were happy with the room, the bath, the staff in the restaurant or the concierge on our 9th floor. There is an exit to the boardwalk and you can reach Marina Mall within 10 minutes walking. The Walk and the beach is reachable as well in 10 minutes stroll.
There is no ATM at the hotel, look for it at the Walk.
The pool area has full sun in the morning but shade in the afternoon. This is rather positive for hot summer time.
Anyhow, this IC is worth to visit again. [Weniger]
