I have stayed at this establishment twice in the last 6 months (Feb and April) and I have to say it is one of the best hotels i... More

Eventually they upgraded us to the executive lounge level as they could see the kids were getting restless. Nice hotel. Beautiful lobby and layout. Rooms good. Toilet a bit small. Internet slow. And a few of our TV... More

First of all, I would like to credit the whole Fairmont Bab Al Bahr team for giving such a great experience in all the hotel facilities. The hotel is a little out from Abu Dhabi's centre, which makes it a very quiet hotel and perfect if you want to have a relaxed experience. The room was incredible and the bed... More

Waited more than 2 hours to check in, pool is filled with single guys and families, beach and pool are not clean. The room is not bad but everything else in the hotel is really bad - we will never go to this hotel again. Do not waste you money and your time
