I travelled with my girlfriend from our anniversary and the room was decorated, we had dinner in one of the restaurants of the hotel and the food was great and they gave us complimentary dessert with a "Happy Anniversary" on it. The room was clean and everything was perfect, the only thing was the remote of the TV, it didn't... More

Where do I start. so we booked this hotel for a stay at the beginning of Ramadan knowing full well that it would be quieter - This was all we were lead to believe. Not that half board in fact meant that you had to pay extra to eat in daylight hours and extra again for dinner as it was... More

Very relaxed hotel, 20 minutes from "downtown" Abu Dhabi. Beautiful decor, a great gym (very clean), lovely swimming pool and bar, quite reasonable beach, one of the best buffet's I ever seen. They only need some improvement from "local" staff.

Had a lovely stay here over my birthday weekend in late June. Hotel lobby and public areas are impressive and grand. The service on check in was really friendly. Room (King Room with City View) was a great size with walk in wet room, big bath, huge bed and sofa area. Fruit and birthday cake was arranged for the room... More

We chose to celebrate our anniversary at Fairmont Bab Al Bahar- big mistake. Service: Impersonal. We were ignored from the moment we stepped into the hotel. We arrived in the evening and reception took about 20 minutes to check us in, although we were the only guests checking in at the time. At no point were we offered drinks or... More

I was desperately surprised with this hotel as we had chosen it based upon the Fairmonts reputation alone...do NOT judge a book by its cover! Due to it being a Fairmont we also upgraded to their Gold rooms (club) which we always book around the Emirates, thinking this would assure us of a first class experience - sadly not to... More

From other Trip Advisor comments we were a bit in doubt of our selection but reception staff friendly and helpful - room book in early was arranged and upgraded and room internet free - Sushi at Cuiscene Restaurant best ever had and staff friendly - Concierge went out of way to assist with a problem - could not fault.

Nice hotel in Abu Dhabi, out of the city and traffic. They have a nice lagoon attached to it. Rooms are big and they have nice amenities and restaurants. Lobby is very big and hotel is close to Ferrari World.
