                                5 of 5
                                The apartment is very spacious and equipped to a high standard . The communal pool was lovely and the temperature great . The weather was fantastic too . There is a shopping mall close by with a food court and we used Nando's and Burger King etc . We had coffee and cake most days in the marina which was lovely . We hired a car at the airport so we're able to explore the area . Plenty of lovely hotels nearby with amazing restaraunts. I would def reccomend this apartment . As they don't sell alcohol in local shops we purchased ours at Heathrow and carried it on board however there is shop in Dubai airport where you can purchase when you land .

                                Absolutely stunning property and its accompanying view. The resort itself is stunning and both the villa and the resort have fantastic facilities. A real chilled out place to relax in! Will definitely recommend to everyone and will revisit! I felt like I was in Spain!
