Our check in was bumpy due to our provider not telling the KP of our booking!! We had to wait over an hour for it to be sorted but Esteban who was dealing with us was great. When we eventually go to our room on the 16th floor, the room was fine, view lovely. Breakfast is a drag...... The staff... More

I stayed here for 6 nights - with 2 rooms for a family of five. I did extensive research before booking a hotel in Abu Dhabi, and wanted to ensure I got a hotel that catered for my kids and my own leisure needs. Boy did I make the right choice.

An exceptional hotel and an exceptional resort. Amazing pool which my kids (and me) loved. The pool at the hotel is better than the pool at the Dubai Jumeirah beach hotel which I have also stayed at. Lovely rooms at the KP, with a great pool view - if you book the sea facing rooms. Check-in was efficient, and I... More

The nearby location is still under construction that detracts overall view of the hotel. Pool is superb but dining is a question mark.You will hear noise coming from the restaurants during breakfast time.But overall our Eid experience this year is better compared from last year,

Stayed here to relax for a 3 day stopover in Abu Dhabi. Check-in was smooth, room was clean and spacious with modern amenities. Television reception suffered from a poor digital signal at times and wireless internet is very expensive which is odd when the Emirates palace across the road offers it for free even to non-guests. Room service food is... More
