My Abu Dhabi stay was only for two nights. I was not able to eat in the hotel for any evening meals, so I am unable to comment on those. However, if I am to go on the breakfast and lunch experience, I am sure the evening meals would have been just as good, if not better. The food presentation... More

I stayed in this hotel and it wasn't the best experience. the rooms are very poor in decor and quality. It s too expensive for what you get. Service is ok, but could be much better. Not really worth of 5 stars.

We stayed for a night and a day en route from Australia to England, and the hotel was really great. Staff were friendly and welcoming, the room was good, and the pool area was nice too. There was a huge range of food for breakfast. As we were basically just resting for 24 hours, we ate in, and were not... More

We stayed during Ramadam in July 2014 when some of the restaurants were closed. The staff however were extremely helpful and apologetic about any closures. The concierge desk in particular was always helpful and knowledgeable. The room was a good size as was the bathroom with a separate bath and shower. Breakfast was excellent. My husband always had eggs cooked... More

I had a very pleasant stay. Special thanks goes to Hannes Schneider the housekeeping supervisor for everything (really appreciated) and to Rokaya for the smoothness and time efficiency during checkin and checkout. Too bad the weather was too hot use the beach.

It's a nice hotel, location is good, and best of all dining experience. But in comparison with other new hotels in Abu Dhabi, the rooms are very average, just need renovation and new furniture. Restaurants in the hotel are among the best in the city, swimming pool is great also.

If you want to go for a hotel with style good service and sofistication please visit this one. It got several restaurants all more remarkable then the other. Professional staff and a perfect concierge service. Just sit back relax and let the staff do the work! There is a small Souk nearby for some shopping or just a starbucks,,,
