As we stayed on the Gold floor we had complimentary drinks from 6-9 with canopies (which was more like a small buffet) they also... More

We arrived at the fairmont after a 6 hour flight from the UK and half hour transfer from Abu Dhabi airport. First impressions were excellent; very grand reception area and very quick check-in to our rooms. We were a group of 6 girls aged 24-26; we had 3 rooms all together, each with 2 single beds. The rooms were very... More

Every thing was just fine . I was in a course there . They gave us a special price but they did not state that this price does not include breakfast buffet. So the price was normal . But all of n all it was just fine with the always smiling staff

We stayed here over Christmas and New Year 2014. The hotel had a good selection of restaurants and all the staff were great. Daryl, the head concierge and Sundar, on the beach, were both outstanding for us! Our room was amazing, spacious and had a fabulous bathroom area. We will definitely be back!
