Default Beach Club Membership - But we are not posh!

Just arrived and am looking for advice on becoming a member of Beach Club. Not looking for anything snotty or posh just a place with a beach, a nice kiddies pool and hopefully some squash courts.

Live in Umm Sequim so was thinking of the Pavillion Marina Sports club at the Jumeria hotel, but have no idea if its any good, if they do memberships or is super posh?

Any advice would be great

Thanks

Paul

You are looking at +30000 Dhs for single membership and 1 year waiting list un Jumeirha Beach Hotel, Mina Seyahi is 50000 and Habtoor is 45000 I believe...absolute crazy prices

Best to check again though, it's been a while since the last time I asked

All beach clubs are quite pricey and usually long wait list. I have done some research few months ago...offers can be different by now, check them out.
Sheraton (at JBR)- [/B]coats about AED5,400/3months for family of 4 (2 adults+ 2 children under 17 years), facilities includes, gym, squash, beach, swimming pool, kiddies playground
Hilton (at JBR) - AED15,750/6months for family (2+2 children up to 13 yrs), includes all above mentioned except squash
Emirates Golf Club - AED27,000/year (2+2 under 18 years), full golf & club membership, squash, gym, tennis, swimming pool, BUT NO BEACH
Dubai Marine Club (on end of beach road) - approx AED15,000/year (2+2), swimming pools, gym, beach, tennis, no squash

I ended up decided to use the beach at JBR (nice and free), found a studio where runs different sorts of dance classes, use the gym, steam, sauna and pool facility with the family where we are living......got to do all within the neighbourhood in economic way..... super!!
