5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I spent ten nights in a nice room on the executive floor. The rooms a spacious, modern, well maintained and cleaned properly. Good breakfast in the lounge, and time-to-time I stayed also for dinner there. Well, it is actually a five o’clock tea, but after a heavy lunch it is just right. The personnel is well trained, professional, the second... More

Stayed here for a holiday/visit relatives. Presidents Option worth the extra, not saying wouldn't be good if you don't pay the extra. Lovely clean pool and quiet beach. Didn't use the restaurants as we ate out so can't comment

The best hotel I have even stayed in my life so far. My highlights go to the steak house, Marco Pierre White Steakhouse & Grill, the best steak that I have ever eaten in my life was there, went there two nights in a row. I highly recommend this restaurant and the hotel as well.

We booked this hotel on the recommendation of a friend via Trail Finders having never been to Abu Dhabi before. The hotel itself was nice and the nearby souk lovely however we did not appreciate how far way it was from the main beach area referred to as the "Corniche" - 20 min taxi ride. On arrival we were offered... More

A great time enjoyed at the Fairmont. Very courteous staff with great food and not a bad view. The tubs in the rooms are great as well! If you're considering this Fairmont for your stay, you'll definitely enjoy your time!

Wonderful atmosphere, great customer service, friendly and the food at the restaurants was to die for. The hotel is on a man-made beach and beautiful swimming pools with a bar in the pool. I definitely recommend this place

Arrived on a Friday evening which is the busiest time for this hotel with weddings and people enjoying a weekend break so, potentially, a difficult time. In fact check in was swift and friendly. I'd been allocated a smoking room (my broker's fault not the hotel), so a return to reception but another, fresher, room was quickly sourced. The next... More

Loved the lobby and the cascading water to the basement bar. Room spacious with chaise lonque to watch tv from. The bathroom divided into 3 areas separated by frosted glass was a welcome bonus. Large vanity unit with 2 sinks was great and having desk etc in the room as well was icing on the cake. Thanks for the birthday... More

3 days of good food, sun and relaxation. The buffet breakfast was a regular hotel buffet with eggs being made your preferred way in front of you with a wide variety. The restaurants were excellent which include the marco Pierre White steak restaurant...lovely. The beach was a really nice place to be...with great waiter service for drinks and snacks!
