Me and my friends stayed for one night only ang they upgraded us to a room with the view of the famous Mosque.. We had a great time during our stay last January 25th.. Fairmont team were amazing and outstanding, all them have a wonderful smile.. We had a relaxing day at the pool. Definitely we'll go back.

We were in Abu Dhabi for five days over Christmas, and usually stay at the Fairmont. Unfortunately, for us, we made the mistake of being unfaithful to the Fairmont this time, and chose another hotel. This turned out to be a BIG mistake, especially when you are sat on your sun lounger and able to see the Fairmont and wishing... More

Staff extremely friendly, professional and on point. We were upgraded to a view room since all of the standard rooms were gone. The pool is spacious and nice but was slightly too cold for me to stay in for too long with the cool breeze that was blowing. Otherwise it's a perfect hotel to stay in, it's quite and relaxing,...
