Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I used the Metro from the World Trade Centre to the Marina which is the most efficient and cheapest way to travel there.

    The Marina is huge and I covered most of it on foot as I couldn't get on a Dhow cruise as more than 5 passengers were required for a trip.

    As well as yachts, there are restaurants, a mall, hotels and apartments along the waterway.

    It was one of the highlights of my trip and wasn't very busy as it's quite a distance from the city.

    Interesting to go once, near the free beaches. You can have the opportunity to see luxury cars. Not dangerous.

    Nice mall right on the Marina, with several happening stores and restaurants. A smallish food court though with barely 7-8 options, though can enjoy the view with the seating area overlooking the marina. Avoid the overpriced food stalls on the marina walk right outside the mall!

    A bit boring, but as usual, if you have nothing to do at home, better to come and enjoy. Nice service, as usual, good staff and very clean :) thank you

    Walking distance from the hotel. A beach with all the fun. Nice to stroll the beach, the waterline or the boardwalk. Just relax and enjoy. Everything is overpriced but don’t worry too much about that and have a good time

    I enjoyed the ferry ride and the seats in gold class were nice. As other reviewers have stated, it is an economical way to get good views of the Dubai skyline. In summer, the visibility in Dubai is often poor, so that will affect the quality of the view. I got the ferry from the Al Ghubaibah marine transport station, which is a short walk from the Al Ghubaibah metro station or the Al Ghubaibah bus station. Gold class cost 70 dirhams, which is about 19 US dollars. The silver class tickets are even cheaper. Make sure to buy your ticket from the ticket window near the ferries, as you can’t use your Nol card (Dubai’s public transport card) to pay for the ferry even though it is run by the RTA. The ferry has a restroom on board and has a small concession stand on board that sells water, soft drinks, and packaged snacks.

    The atmosphere here is perfect for a family getaway. Close proximity to the restaurants and retail stores, this destination is truly one for all ages and interests. Not to mention the cleanliness, and design of the location is beautiful for photographs.

    This place was the place to be! If u were lucky enough to have a flat here or rent it for a trip, on a high floor, than u had everything: Dubai Marina Walk day and night view, sea view and palm view, spotting even Atlantis at the end of it.
    Unfortunately a massive recently built hotel right few meters in front of the twisted tower has cut all view possibilities so all u can see is someone’s balcony or at max the river on the left side od the building.

    It's a small splash pad with a wave pool on the other side.

    We spent about 3 hours at the place and our kids did not wanna leave. It's a small splash pad but not crowded at all. Residents probably enter for free, but otherwise it's about 40dhs per head. We had gotten a discount on Groupon and hence spent less.
    It's a nice fun way to beat the heat, they do serve popcorn n chips at d park, you can get your own snacks..

    This was our 10th dive , such a unique experience .
    Friendly staff and great orientation for conditions of sea and surrounding elements of dive .
    Proper equipment along with great weather and under stream water .
    We dived for ship wreck (Dara) at 21 meter depth for 45 min , good visibility made it perfect dive . Although very strong current in the depth was undergoing but we were briefed and able to handle it .
    I recommend it to divers
