Default Utility costs in dubai

We are in the early process of relocating to Dubai and hashing up the cost differences between a villa and an apartment. We have children but have heard that it is so hot in the summer months that the kids don't play outside anyways. Which brings us to how much are utilities in a 3 bed + maids villa compared to a 3 bed+maids apartment? Assuming the apartment was large. If we could add a cable TV package, water, electricity, gas, internet. How much a month would all this cost for a family of 5?

Honest realistic answers would really help us to put a perspective on how much to spend and where to start looking from the start as there is nothing worse than looking at one price range then realising you have to lower it dramatically.

Thank you all in advance.
