My wife and I stayed at the Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi for one week in April - and it was an amazing experience. Upon check in, our room was ready and the staff were very welcoming. We didn't get offered a club lounge upgrade but we decided we would raise this ourselves once settled in. We stayed half board, the... More

Stayed here for two nights on my maiden visit to Abu Dhabi. A great experience and stay. The property is huge and well laid out. Luxurious and yet not over the top. Evenings are very nice with all the balconies lit up and looks beautiful. The property overlooks the canal and the Abu Dhabi skyline too. A special mention to... More

This is the first time that I truly feel like writing a review for a hotel. Hotel itself is gorgeous and you even can not use words to describe the beauty of it. But most amazing part is the staff there. Everyone is so nice, friendly and willing to take care of us. I've encountered with Ms. Clara who checked... More

My only regret was staying there for one night. The place was so lovely, the staff was so friendly and the room was spacious and overlooking an amazing sight. I highly recommend it and I found the pricing was more than fair.

Stayed one night over the weekend together with some friends. Nice property, located at the entrance of Abu Dhabi, overlooking the mosque. Artificial beach ok but to hot at this time of the year and would never swim in the canal. We enjoyed the pool facilities and loved the rooms layout. A bit disappointing was to see that even if...

Stayed at the Ritz for a Brunch and night stay in club package. Brunch was awesome one of the best we've had in Abu Dhabi. Service was excellent. Club worth the extra for the late check out and use of the lounge. Room was fine usual standard for Abu Dhabi in the top class hotels.
