All the guide books we read said that the public areas of the hotel were free to visit. When we tried to do this on 26th July, we were advised that as of last month this was no longer the case and a reservation of some sort is now required.

For sheer opulence this has to be seen to be believed. We were advised by a local that sightseers are not welcome but if we booked for afternoon tea we would be welcome. The lavish offerings with an iced coffee were welcomed but we then took in the sights of the hotel and surrounds. Simply amazing.

Must be one the world's top hotels. Worth a visit even if only for afternoon tea. Dinner is available in a variety of restaurants but it is hard to better the buffet as it is super.

Too much gold, too much ostentaion from my point of view. Anyway, to be seen at least once in the life. It is not the real palace of the Emir, but a luxury hotel.

A landmark in Abu Dhabi... a place that you must visit. Huge lobby and public areas. I always enjoy their Japanese restaurant - Hakasan. Quite expensive but worth to be there! Cheers,

This palace is real king size. Wonderful architecture and the gold jwellery are awesome. The beach side of the palace hotel is very relaxing. When in Abu Dhabi its a first place to visit.

This hotel is magnificent, amazing with all its decoration and colourful marbles. Two things diappointed my trip in this hotel worth mentioning. One is the butler who came to our room to explain how to use the IPAD to control the lights and TV where he is suppose to help the guest upon request while his phone kept busy for... More
