Nuran is located in the perfect spot for us. We stayed previously there in November 2014.
We have stayed at Atlantis 2-3 times, at Hilton Jumeirah, and at Arabian Ranches Golf Club (many times), but Nuran is now our place of choice. We like the flexibility of accommodation that doesn't tie us to mealtimes of particular eating places, and where we can cater for ourselves when we wish. Close by are Carrefours and Waitrose, two excellent supermarkets where prices are the same as, or lower, than their UK equivalents.
For eating out, the Marina Mall provides a variety of experience, and the ease of transport - taxi, Metro, Tram, water bus - opens up the rest of Dubai for brunches, etc.
We had booked a 1 bedroom apartment but on arrival, were told that the room was not available. Instead, we were upgraded at no charge to a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment that was massive, with an outside terrace overlooking the pool area that was also huge. The kitchen was well-equipped and the place was excellent.
Staff are effective yet unobtrusive.
We had a great 12 days this time. We love the Marina area for all the great walks, and closeness to the beach.
All in all, our favourite place to stay in Dubai.
