Loved the beauty and exclusiveness of the Fairmont in Abu Dhabi. Staff are exceptionally friendly, professional and efficient. Food and ambiance are superb. Even though we struggled to get hot water in our shower, that was pretty much the only thing that wasn't perfect about our stay. The restaurants are great, short walk along the beautiful promenade to souks and... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel for a week in April and really enjoyed our stay. The room was spacious and the bed was so comfortable! It was a good time of year as the hotel wasn't too full, meaning more space on the beach/poolside. We had a half board package which included breakfast and dinner. My girlfriend... More

I spent a week in Abu Dhabi on someone else's bill. And that someone else put me up in the Fairmont on the canal, right opposite the big mosque. Even better, that someone else put me up in one of their Fairmont Gold rooms. This is a really class place: breakfast on the seventh floor overlooking the canal was outstanding,... More

Spent 5 nights at this hotel during a trip to Abu Dhabi. The hotel is really nice, the rooms are fantastic, and the food in the hotel restaurants was great (although quite pricey compared to other restaurants in the area). In short, we really enjoyed our stay. My only small negative (and the only reason it wasn't a full five... More

This place is absolutely amazing - I chose this hotel as we wanted a luxurious relaxing break and we weren't disappointed. From the moment we stepped out of our taxi the staff were so friendly and helpful. Abu Dhabi really knows how to do customer service. We never had to ask twice for anything and they were always available without... More

We are 6 days into a 10 day stay and overall this hotel is excellent - the staff are very friendly and nothing seems too much trouble - and everyone seems genuinely happy (I'm well aware of the working conditions here). The hotel has a beach and a first class pool. On the downside, the pool area for loungers is... More
