In total we can highly recommend the resort! We enjoyed very much our first experience with Airbnb.
The venue was great with a nice pool and beach. The apartment was also comfortable. Walid arranged us a baby chair and baby cod, which was great.
The location of the apartment is really away from all shops and supermarkets – the closest supermarket at Dubai Marina is about 40 min drive away. There is a luxury hotel next to the residences, yet it is extremely expensive, so one has always take a taxi and drive to the city center if willing to eat in a restaurant.
Other problems with the apartment included that the owen was not working and the dishwasher etc. had only instructions in Arabic. It would also have been great to get information beforehand, which items belong to the contract and which not (e.g. drinking water, dishwasher tablets). If something crucial is missing, it’s a lot of money and 2 hours to get it from the city center.
Anyway, the weather was excellent, and the venue as a whole for really nice for an extended family.
Apartment and neighbourhood as promised on Airbnb. The apartment sits in a well maintained and secure development on West Palm, 10 steps from a lovely sandy beach and with access to the private pool that was very quiet throughout our stay. Good to be able to use facilities at neighbouring hotel in the evenings and also to book day trips through Arabian Adventures ( definitely recommend the desert safari and, if possible, book an exclusive 4x4 to give you more flexibility). No problem checking in early to apartment having landed at 7 am and the cleaning staff soon had it tidied up with a small welcome pack of food provided. A helpful recommendation from the host to stock up on food from Carrefour in the Emirates Mall at the foot of the Palm. Two double bedrooms spacious with good bathrooms. Maids room also fine for a short stay though note no windows. Microwave, dishwasher , fridge freezer and gas hob all worked fine but unfortunately not the water cooler, washing machine or main oven which were not fixed during our stay in spite of repeated requests. A bit disappointing at the price paid. Note also there is a large building site next to the apartment block. On the whole not a problem - just noisy drilling on one or two mornings and a bit of an eyesore from the master bedroom. But, to be honest, you would struggle to find anywhere in Dubai that isn't next to a building site and no inconvenience at all once you are by the pool or enjoying the beach. Being on the Palm does mean all attractions are a taxi ride away but there is a taxi rank at the neighbouring hotel and we didn't find taxi fares high compared with London or The Hague! Very glad we made the choice to self cater for the extra flexibility and location is great for a relaxed week at the beach.
All arrangements went very smoothly for key collection and welcome
Apartment as described very spacious and comfortable
we had a problem with wifi one day but it was very quickly solved by the management we were very impressed
Fabulous apartment with great concierge service in a good area for beach and eateries. We had a text from our host on arrival giving us address etc and simply arrived and went to the room where they had been kind enough to leave some breakfast things, water, loo roll etc. We managed to work out that everything we needed was on the key ring within the first 24 hours (safe key, pass card for outside doors and wifi code). Everything was clean and felt very safe and exclusive. All of the sunbeds both around the pretty pool and the private bit of beach were well cushioned and comfortable. The pool in January was unheated and too cold to swim but worth noting that the hotel next door had a heated pool which I am sure you could have used for a cost. If, like us, you cannot sleep on a very hard high pillow it would be worth taking something with you, but other than that the beds were comfortable and the rooms clean and very smart with three ensuite (email hidden)e sun shone and the girls got brown.
My friends and I loved the apartment and enjoyed staying there. The apartment is very luxury and beautiful with a gorgeous sea view. the swimming pool is absolutely great and the privet access to the beach.
We arrived at the place to find a welcoming snacks.
Our experience was really good and this apartment will be my destination every time I visit Dubai.
Walid und Sheroze waren sehr nett und Hilfsbereit!
Die Wohnung, Pool und strand waren genauso wie auf den Bildern.
Ein Mal die Woche kommt eine Putztkolonne die das appertment putz, die Mitarbeiter waren Außerdem sehr nett.
Die Wohnung liegt ein bisschen Außerhalb von der Innenstadt von Dubai aber mit den Taxi ist man überall hingekommen.
Von der Grandeuer Residence vis zur Metro Station haben wir ca. 15 bis 25 Dirham bezahlt, was wirklich wenig ist.
In der Wohnung war alles was man benötigt,
-> Handtücher, Besteckt, Messer, Gabel, Mikrowelle, Töpfe
-> wenn man in den Pool / Strand geht bekommt man Kostenlos ein Handtuch,m dieser muss wieder abgegeben werden.
Im Großen und ganzen war es ein sehr angenhemen Aufenthalt in Grandeuer Residence!
Wir werden aufjedenfall wieder kommen!
