My company is usually booking me a room in this hotel whenever I visit Abu Dhabi. I always have a pleasant stay in this hotel and I really recommend it as it offers good rates in an excellent location, not far away from the Marina Mall and the Emirates Palace, just behind the Etihad Towers. In addition it offers a... More

We spent one night in this hotel: good facilities, friendly staff, nice swimming pools. Was Ramadam time so the activities were a bit low. Location is very nice, in front of Emirates Palace, just after Ethiad Towers.

Really had a great time at this hotel with my kids. We basically marinated in the pool for 2 days. The only draw back is that their beds are not so great. But service and all other amenities were fantastic.

I'm not surprised that this hotel features in Tripadvisor's Top 20 for Abu Dhabi. What it lacks in height to its neighbour the Etihad Towers the hotel makes up for in terms of hospitality and elegance. From huge chandeliers in the lobby to great views of the water from a Twin Room Plus, you can be assured a relaxing stay.... More

Staff were extremely attentive to our needs, the room was well appointed and was like an oasis after a long flight. It was very comfortable and enough space to spread out.

We have never in our travels experienced so much attentiveness and care from hotel employees.

Enjoy the beach. Hotel staff very attentive and friendly. Restaurant breakfast had nice selection. Only very minor complaint was the quality of food from room service. Otherwise from that, this hotel was worth the money. The best part was the beach. Spent most of the day there. Absolutely a wonderful stay overall.
