Everything about the hotel is just right. The staff are attentive and pleasant without being over the top or too familiar. I'm writing from our room at the hotel. The hotels in Abu Dhabi have a lot of competition and I'm pleased to say The Fairmont is up along side the best. We celebrated our anniversary and also my wife's... More

My husband and I loved this lovely friendly hotel. We stayed in a gold sea view room, fantastic view of the grand mosque. The staff on floor 7 were fabulous looked after our every need. The room was spacious and well kept nothing was too much trouble. The flowers and chocolates on our third night were a lovely touch. Thank-you... More

I wont talk. The images will. As usual, the staff is great. The hotel is crap. It smells bad in all rooms. Wooden parts on the facade are infested with moister. My kids, my wife and myself stayed sick and affected for almost 2 weeks. I was upgraded. I assume only refund is acceptable. Sorry for the images but this... More

We stayed on a half board summer special so for the price, it felt about right. It wasn't a relaxing stay and the hotel is feeling a little jaded. There weren't enough staff in reception, whether it meant waiting for someone to take the car (we are fine with carrying our own luggage so that didn't matter), only one person... More

My stay at the Fairmont was an awesome experience. It is a great introuduction to the beautiful Abu Dhabi. All of the staff were extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming! The grounds are impeccable.....and the individual room was very comfortable, modern and most important clean.

This is one one the best hotels I have stayed in recently. It's a fairly modern property with great design features, a large well-run pool and beach area and plenty of choice of restaurants and bars. Rooms are spacious with well-appointed bathrooms and amenities. As for the location it's a 15-20 min taxi ride out of central Abu Dhabi but... More

Fabulous location with pool and beach area. Very clean and spacious lobby areas with stunning views overlooking the Grand Mosque, which is lit up beautifully at night. What really makes this place special is the staff, from the man who cleaned the lift windows to the pool staff, who work tirelessly in high temperatures. We ate at Frankie's practically every...

This was our second visit to the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr, having visited for Christmas in 2010. Back then we had an awesome visit but this time there was no wow factor.
