This was my second time at this hotel as a stopover from Australia to Europe. It is a high standard hotel with good facilities and design features. I stayed here about two years ago, also in a Gold room, and really noticed a decline in the cleanliness and maintenance of the room which was starting to show its age and... More

Amazing views of the Grand Mosque from the rooms. Its a luxury 5 stars hotel, with a good price, efficient service in the reception and luxury rooms. The beach looks nice in the pictures but in the reality its not what we expect, but in other hand the pool its amazing. Its a great choice for weekend in Abu Dhabi.

Simply one of the best hotels I visited. Luxurious and comfortable in everyway. Breakfast is great too with the widest variety imaginable. DOWNSIDES? Yes, Sea water in front of hotel is very shallow, and there are almost no waves! I am told this is because the water front was man made (Canal or bay) and it is not open to... More

My wife and I stayed for a week 29 June - 6 July. Good: Upon arrival, registration was simple, what could be explained simply was, room allocated and directions given to CuiScene, the main restaurant. Food throughout our stay was excellent even if a little bit samey. We could always find something to eat. Our room was excellent and the... More

Located away from the Abu Dhabi itself (15 min drive) Fairmont comes with the classic 5 star ambiance. It showcases some opulence but that was not reflected into the price. We paid 100 EUR for a night with breakfast included and trust me, it is 1 millennia ahead of what you would get in Europe for that money: - 5... More
