Clean and well maintained
Good gym, well maintained and clean, spacious apartments, good crowd and decent elevators.. rarely had to wait in line for the elevator even during Corona times when we can ride only 4. Parking for visitors is non-existent but I guess that's the standard set in most of the buildings in Marina. Good thing there are a lot of parking sports near Barasti just over the road. Love the gym and the summing pools and the proximity to everything!
Airconditioning is a joke
Nice apartment, but airconditioning is very bad. Had it cleaned / fixed several times. It never gets colder then 24 degrees. I ve it running 24/7. If I turn it off for only a day it would take 3 to 4 days to get to 24 degrees again in summer. AC is not really working and still paying a fortune for AC bills. Airconditioning gets 1 star.
Best Building in the Marina
I've lived in Dubai for 7 years, 5 of those years have been in a 1br or 2br apartment in this building. Elite Residence is by the far the best building to live in Dubai Marina, the location is perfect for the Marina, close to the beach, maintained to the highest level and has amazing facilities. The gym is the most equipped I've seen and the pool/lounging area (with artificial grass) is well kept and has many loungers available. You do get the occasional smell in the buliding (like most in Dubai) but I've never seen a cockroach in any of my apartments. This building would be the best choice you've ever made.
Worst Tower For Sharing
If you are willing to move and take one BR or 2 BR (It is expensive), i highly recommend. If you are coming for sharing especially in the 72nd, 71st and 73rd floor. Don't Ever. You will literally hate your life because of the bad smells, cockroaches, cooking smells, worst cleaning service ever, etc ....
Better than Sulafa
Close to barasti, carefour, pharmacy, ATM, train station. Too many people, because of shared apartments. Gym is not bad.
During my three years in a 20th floor 2-bed at Elite, I have loved the location (so close to the Marina walk, Carrefour, tram, Media City, Barasti/Westin), the spaciousness & nice design of the apartment, the pleasant staff, and the great gym & pools. The only not-so-great things I can think of are the slightly dated design of the kitchen and bathrooms, and also the tendency of drivers in the area to lean on their car horns for minutes (why??). The views aren't so great on the non-ocean view side of the building but a positive is that the apartment stays relatively cool in summer.
Beautiful building to stay and invest
The building is really beautiful to stay in and to invest. Its the heart of Dubai Marina offering beautiful views of palm and the sea. Definitely a place of dream home.
the best building in the area
Best view - best value - most convenient location to public transportation. Miami without the Hurricanes. No where in the Marina can you get this combination. 5 minutes walk from restaurants, beaches, beach clubs, boat rides, parachutes, banks and clinics and one the best man made Marinas in the world.
Great place for long and short term living
I used to stay in Elite for 3 years. Good location for long and short term stay. Big supermarket 20 meters, tram station 100 meters, Barasti beach across the road. Close to Dubai Marina all restaurants. Building staff friendly and helpful. Will stay there again if have opportunity.
The garbage room stinks all over the buiding
I moved to this building 2 months ago and I can't wait to move out. The garbage treatment is poor which make stinks even inside my apartment. The basement gets the same strong smell. Gym, Pool and location are really good.
