It certainly looks futuristic! Inside it's got the WOW factor when you walk in and has some lovely restaurants and beach area which clearly is the place to be for local young profs. There are many local families that use it for the day which i though was a good sign. The quality is 5* and the concierge was really... More

This was my second time staying at the Fairmont having previously been a guest in 2013. Room decor had changed since my last stay but the standard of the hotel and staff was just as before, simply fantastic. The staff could not be more helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Arabic coffee and dates in the lobby in a... More

We stayed for 7 nights over February half term. I paid extra to stay on the Gold floor and it is definitely worth it. Check in was smooth, although our room only had 1 king bed (for 3 of us), we were told an extra bed would be sorted. The room 761 smelled of damp, so I returned to reception... More

A very nice hotel. The wow factor hits you as you drive up tree lined entrance to reception. This wow continues into the hotel, the reception, the room. I always choose a creek view. I could look at the grand mosque all day. Beautiful architecture and looks even better in the evening lit up. Good genre of places to eat... More

From the moment you walk into the hotel lobby, you get a wow factor. The décor is modern and stylish. The hotels staff are very helpful, friendly and efficient. The hotel's locations with views across to the Grand Mosque are stunning and you can get some lovely photos at day and night. The basic bedrooms are large enough for a... More

My husband and son had booked for the WWE event for that weekend and as we stay in Dubai, my husband suggested we book a hotel in Abu Dhabi so we can spend a weekend out instead of them doing a to and fro for the event. I think it was the best idea as we had a great time... More
