I went there with a friend and I had a great stay. Room was super clean and daily clean. The view of the Blue Mosque was incredible. We tried one of their restaurant, it wasn't impressive for what it was, but this isn't related to the hotel it self. Big gym complete with a view of the mosque and river.... More

Had a quick two night visit to Abu Dhabi and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel and standard room. The room was spacious with a large bed, couch and work area. The bathroom was very large with double sink, separate shower/tub and toilet area. The shower had a rain shower head which was nice but others in... More

I had visited the hotel already for the 3rd time and it was always a great stay. First, the property and facilities itself deserve a top mark - the pool is gorgeous and very large, the beach is nicely set and quiet, the rooms are excellent and spacious (the only design feature that I did not like is the bathroom,...

Stayed here with my wife and daughter for the weekend to celebrate our Anniversary and was nothing but impressed with the hotel. The room had a great view of both the pool, beach and mosque was a decent size and had extremely comfortable beds. We ate in Cuiscene buffet restaurant every night as it was easiest with our young daughter... More

Having been to Abu Dhabi for the last 15 years we have stayed in many nice hotels, including the Emirates Palace. We visited in January and decided to try the Fairmont. On arrival we were greeted by the superb staff in the Gold Lounge, having booked Gold rooms for our week long stay. The staff, service, food were excellent and... More

It certainly looks futuristic! Inside it's got the WOW factor when you walk in and has some lovely restaurants and beach area which clearly is the place to be for local young profs. There are many local families that use it for the day which i though was a good sign. The quality is 5* and the concierge was really... More

This was my second time staying at the Fairmont having previously been a guest in 2013. Room decor had changed since my last stay but the standard of the hotel and staff was just as before, simply fantastic. The staff could not be more helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Arabic coffee and dates in the lobby in a... More

We stayed for 7 nights over February half term. I paid extra to stay on the Gold floor and it is definitely worth it. Check in was smooth, although our room only had 1 king bed (for 3 of us), we were told an extra bed would be sorted. The room 761 smelled of damp, so I returned to reception... More
