The main picture on the website is all you need to decide if this is the hotel for you. The pools and beach are the main assets and provide a beach holiday experience even though you are right in the city. It is a big hotel so there are many who try and reserve the sun beds and we saw... More

I have been last weekend in this hotel back again after 1 1/2 years and it is still very pleasant. The pool and garden area is refreshing your soul while relaxing at the pool side or on the beach and viewing the palm trees, flowers, sea, bridges build over the pool.... and listening to the birds. There are plenty of... More

I had a nice stay, although short, in the hotel. the facilities are really great, the rooms spacious, but you have to pay for internet (nobody does that anymore. it's medieval in UAE to ask customers to pay for internet). a colleague of mine asked to change his room because of bad smell in the room.

Very nice hotel, spacious rooms, free valet parking and convenient location. My only reason for giving it four stars is that I arrived from a twelve hour journey, three hours before check in time to be told that I had to wait in the lobby till 12pm even though there was a room available which had to be cleaned and...

Let's get the bad stuff out the way first. We booked two rooms for our family of 2 adults and 3 children. We asked for connecting rooms, extra bed in one room for our 4 year old and a twin room (2 single beds) for our two boys aged 11 and 14. On arrival, we were told there was no... More

I visited the Hotel in April and chose it purely for the outside beachside pool area. Claiming to be the largest pool in Abu Dhabi may or may not be true but on arrival at around 12noon there was not one avaliable sun lounger to be had!!! Because of its competitive price I guess the hotel was busier than others... More

We stayed there for just one night, and found it to live up to most of our expectations. It’s a beautiful place, with nice big rooms, and a lovely beach and pool area. We arrived on an early morning flight from Paris, and appreciated the classy touch of seating us in a comfortable couch in the lobby while a helpful... More

We booked this hotel after looking at many others, not only is it a 5* but has excellent rates too. On arrival at the hotel from the airport the staff couldn't do enough for us. They were extremely friendly, polite and always had a smile on their faces when speaking to us. They always seemed to know who we were..is... More
