It have called the Ain Dubai at least 10 times and have been put on hold for 15 to 30 minutes each time over the last 5 days.
Nobody from their sales team answers the phone and nobody answers the email inquiries. In my case it is for a large group request.
I can understand the place just opened to the public but they are clearly overwhelmed or under-staffed. I even went there to inquire in person and I was not given any direct contact details as apparently the sales team does not have a work mobile number.
This is unacceptable that as a corporate client I cannot reach the sales team or get a call back or get my several emails answered.

When I went to Bluewaters parking on 14. Janyary at 9:00 pm, I did not receive any ticket or token at the entrance, I had dinner at the restaurant “un di manche a Paris” and of course I paid my bill. In the restaurant they did not advise me regarding any validation for parking, and since I did not have any parking ticket or token I didn’t ask for anything neither.
As I wanted leave the parking I had a very disappointing surprise that I had to pay 100 dhs for parking without any other alternative, because a long line of cars was behind me waiting to leave the parking and having the same issues like me.
I am really upset with this kind of trap that the management is doing to the normal Bluewaters visitors and customers, I understand that they want to get money for parking, but the management for Bluewaters could choose a legal way, no trying to trap using tricks to take advantage of the visitors.

This area is now very very busy. The new parking system is too difficult for many people to understand, crazy expensive (16 USD for 3 hours) and badly organised. We queued for 20 minutes just to pay and then the car park was totally gridlocked and it took us another 20 minutes to get through the barriers. I feel sorry for the poor security guards trying to keep things moving.

Pathetic experience at Blue waters.
The drone show at 8pm was cancelled. On top of that when we were leaving 20 min before our parking was about to end, there was a long queue at the parking payment station- which were only two in the whole premises. Most of us were unaware that we could pay at exit. Thus because of the long queue we we were in the parking a minute over an hour, and we had to pay double parking fees -which was not our fault.
Even at the actual exit -there was long queue and many were had to pay additional fees as they were not out of the parking area before the allocated time to exit

We visited blue water island on 24th December. It was pleasant trip for us. Enjoyed drone show at 8 pm which was also good. But our horrible experience started when we reached at our car. There was long queues at parking payment. We paid our Parking fees and started our car but unfortunately it was long queues. We were in queues for 45 minutes then I started walking to see why cars are not moving. At the exit gate security not allowing our parking lines but only basement cars. Many people like me shouted then they allowed our cars to move out. Once we reached at exit gate they force fully collected money for extra 1 hour. It was horrible experience. Never visit blue water island forever.

Parking area is 20 Durham per hour, but if you buy 100 from a long list outlets, your 3 hours parking will be free. Up the elevator to The Wharf, big and beautiful structure, facing Ain Dubai, the biggest wheel in the world but not functioning. A bit walk to the boardwalk crossing to Marina and JBR where you can find hundreds of restaurants, cafes, shops, kiosks and many hotels. Many things to do next to Marina. Back to Bluewaters, buy souvenirs from Discover Dubai, dine in there and that’s it. A pleasant visit

Stunning views and breathtaking scenery. Superb experience all through out the island. Eye catching biggest ferris wheel in the worl is still under construction as of the moment. Overlooking JBR across the waters is perfect all day. During the night, blue shades cover the gigantic futuristic tree-like structures that makes the whole area in different mood. Likewise, wide variety of food outlets and restaurants surround the area for hungry visitors.

In the future, you should not go to this place. Already there were not many people with the free parking, but today I do not know who decided to charge 20 AED. It's just a big joke, run away, it's not worth it at all! 20 AED/heur to go eat a McDo is worth it 👏 The management company is still a shaky company like most of the companies in Dubai I guess
