Have just spent 3 nights at the Khalidiya Palace and I was very impressed with this property. Beautiful hotel, very impressive lobby and large, comfortable rooms complete with kitchenette and a huge balcony. The pool area is beautiful and the hotel in general is meticulously taken care of. The location is fantastic, directly on the water and opposite the world... More

A very nice hotel the views are nice over looking the gulf, it does have serious construction noise on one side which they addressed for us and moved us rooms. The only downside was having to pay for wifi which should now already be included in the rate.

A perfect place to escape snow and ice in Europe in January. Very good hotel, super friendly staff. It´s not open sea but the lagoon is nice and totally o.k. for swimming and relaxing even when the beach is not very large. Abu Dhabi is a booming city full of life and you find very good dining opportunities and good... More

The pool/beach area is great (large, clean, plenty of sunbeds), the staff are very friendly, the rooms are spacious and the Arabic restaurant serves delicious food. Areas for improvement: The beach bar service was very slow the day we ordered (ca. 45 minutes for a snack). Hot vegetarian options are also very limited. Not having Wifi included is a huge... More

We stayed at the Khalidiya Palace for a weekend break to escape from busy Dubai and this was just the perfect place to relax. But we can also recommend this place for holiday makers from abroad.

We stayed at this hotel during Christmas. Everything was very good: the concierge guys are very friendly and efficient. Always a warm welcome in the lobby. Very nice heated pool & kids pool & direct access to a private sandy beach. I only found 2 downsides: 1) the staff at the pool bar is too slow... 1/2h for a coffee,... More
