thank you very much for letting us share your wonderful apartment it really is a home from home.The apartment is modern with every appliance you could wish for. The welcome pack we received on arrival was really appreciated and contained everything you needed until you was able to get to the supermarket.A lot of thought had gone into its contents. The apartment is walking distance to the metro, but this was not a problem we used to get a taxi to the Mall of the Emirates and then catch the metro into the old town. A good tip would be to buy a card at the metro station which costs 20 dirhams and can be topped up at any time and lasts 5yrs,this can be used on the metro or the buses. On a evening we used to get a taxi costing £2 to the Marriott hotel in Dubai marina and go to the Observatory on the 52nd floor, fantastic views looking towards the Atlantis Hotel.This hotel has a happy hour 6pm to 8pm drinks are half price and you get nibbles which was a nice touch.
On returning from the Marriott we used to sit out on the balcony which had fantastic views of the city and Emirates golf course. Anybody going to Dubai should consider buying a book called "the Dubai Entertainer" (i got mine on Ebay) it contains vouchers for buy one get one free on hundreds of restaurants,theme /water parks,golf,leisure and pleasure. Waitrose supermarket is in Dubai marina and also in the Mall of the Emirates is a carefeour supermarket selling everything you could possibly want ,and it is cheaper.
I would highly recommend a visit to Dubai and would definitely say make sure you first find out if Karens apartment is available because you would not be disappointed.Thanks Karen
