Nice Building and Nice Locations
Very friendly and practical for Children, with easy access to the beach, pool, playgrounds and the park. walking distance from many supermarkets and easy to park everywhere. Living in Shoreline makes you feel always as if you are on continuous vacation. Refurbished and upgraded apartments are the best to move in since the interior design originally made by Nakheel is very boring. Security is very high and you do not need to worry about incidents. The private beach and the views from the balcony makes it a very unique place to live in.

Building with Stunning views
3 bedrooms apartments (Type A) have views of Burj Al Arab, Birj Khalifa and Marina. These are the only apartments with such stunning views. In addition there is a few noise from the street, preferably at high floors. It has easy access (few hundreds of meters) from the U turn towards Sheikh Zayed Road or Umm Suquem. Very nice security people too and facilities like private beach, pool and gym.

Nice building of Shoreline Apartments
Great layouts of apartments. In general these buildings seem to be thoroughly thought through unlike many others in Dubai that seem like high school projects. Some people complain about quality of finishing, but it is equally as poor as any other building in this city. Some types of apartments have amazing balconies. Staff generally is OK, some people (most of them) are really helpful and friendly, some - not. Gym is well equipped and actually has a nice view of the “sea” and butj al arab. Pool is quite good too. It’s large enough and has a nice kids section as well. Building and surrounding are Great for kids, goes without saying. The only issue with the traffic is that there’s no “official” pedestrian crossing of the service road near this building so you have to rely on politeness and driving skills of the motorists passing by. On the positive side - one doesn’t have to cross the main road to reach the park, because you go under the bridge. Traffic noise could be a bit too much especially in busy hours (weekend nights). But it’s a general issue with all the buildings in this area when facing the roadside. Noise radars would definitely help if installed one day. This particular building has tons of opportunities for guest parking. 2 grocery shops are within 5 min walk.

A true resort-style development. It features themed hotels, villas, apartment buildings, beaches, marinas, restaurants, and a variety of retail outlets.

Needs a makeover but undeniably perfect location
The location of these apartments is incredible. Right on the beach, gym and pool on the doorstep and a full view of the ocean and both Burj's. I LOVE it, and I LOVE my apartment, BUT the finishings, colour palette and quality of the interiors are vile. If Nakheel were just to simply, repaint the interiors/kitchen and bathroom fascias within the apartments, and re-interior design the common areas, then the buildings would, in my opinion, be one of the most sought after in Dubai with their perfect location and facilities of the Palm.

Made out of cardboard
Looks great from the outside but poorly constructed and cheaply finished. The one good thing about the building is the soundproofing.

A building built like a house card
3 months into living there we are still complaining (to no avail) so far about the lack of hot water ! everywhere you look, something breaks ! Having said that it is a perfect location and hopefully all will get fixed eventually.
