We stayed here in Feb 2012 and found its location to be quite convenient.
The hotel is about 30 min drive from the airport.
The nearest Metro station (Dubai Marina) is 5 to 10 min walk, and the trains are frequent, comfortable and cheap. At the time of writing 15DHMS lets you travel all day. All trains and stations are air conditioned.
The nearest free beach is 15 to 20 min walk. It's gently sloping so safe for poor swimmers and it's clean, but there are no showers, toilets, sun loungers or sun umbrellas there, so take your own if you can !
There are supermarkets and decent Pizza outlets within 5 minutes walk.
The hotel has its own pool which (largest dimension) is about 20m long so can be used for fitness swimming, assuming it isn`t too full, or people start swimming widthways (why do they do that when the pool`s depth is the same everywhere anyway) ? ! ? The pool could also do with some lines painting on the bottom to help ensure everyone swims straight !
We had a "Deluxe room" and were pretty pleased with it. They`re quite large, have plenty of storage space, a fridge, cooker (only two rings) and a washing machine. They don`t have a heater though, which we actually could have done with when we were there ! The water wasn`t that hot either but we coped alright. Furthermore there wasn`t a full compliment of cooking utensils either, like a sieve and a measuring cylinder, aren`t they essential ? ! ? The helpful staff would bring you extra stuff if you asked for it but it`s a pain having to keep asking isn`t it ?
We were satisfied and would stay there again, partly because we found all the other hotels to be quite expensive.
Last tip ? Buy your beer/wine at the duty free on arrival because it isn`t available from shops in Dubai, you`ll be glad you did ! ! !
