Default Information about Dubai please!

Hi!

My husband got offered a job in Dubai and now we are looking for as much information as possible. We were there on holidays a few years ago, but of course a lot has changed. How much do you really need to have a good life, in this contract he will get 33.000dirham a month, house allowance on 15.000, medical and schools.We have two children, 3 and 1 years. Where are the good areas to live for a family, I would like to be close to the beach, or seaviews. Which schools are good and what is there to do with children, playgroups? and what is there to do besides shopping?! Mums meet-ups?
Happy if you can help me expatexperts!
