We stayed several times before in Dubai and this is the best value for money. The location is right on Kite beach, our favorite beach in Dubai. The property is as decribed. Service is very efficient and pleasant. Limited food service ( sandwiches, cakes and drinks) is conveniently available at the swimming pool and as room service. Two points on the minus side :first, the sound level at the swimming pool : much too loud and persistent all day long ...sometimes you just want to enjoy the quiet and it is not as classy as it should be for the resort. Second, the studio was right above a car park which is very busy on Friday and Saturday nights ( continuous traffic till 3 am). Overall, an excellent stay.

Also a sewage smell in each bathroom. Tried to call and text for help. No response.
