First time staying at Al Raha Beach Hotel. Stayed for two nights with my husband on April 5-6. Overall, it was a good stay and we enjoyed ourselves, but I must say the hotel does not deserve a 5-star rating. PROS 1. STAFF-Very friendly staff. We encountered very few staff that weren't smiling and helpful. Attitude goes a long way.... More

My wife and I have just spent 6 nights at the Al Raha Beach Resort in Abu Dhabi. The stay started well as the reception staff were very understanding and flexible in the way that they handled a delay to my arrival. I had booked the hotel under my name but was unfortunately delayed which meant that my wife arrived... More

We stayed for a week at Al Raha beach hotel and overall rate this hotel as excellent. I would say a perfect location as you are between Yas Island and Abu Dhabi and taxis are approx £5 each way to either location. Beautiful gulf view room which was massive and had a very luxurious bathroom. Only downside was we had... More

We arrived in mid afternoon after a morning sightseeing. The lunch buffet was still on and we enjoyed it- a big selection of food and desserts, and a nice view sitting outside on the verandah with a cold beer. The waitress came to tell us when the buffet was nearly closing - good service. The beach and pool area were... More

Good property for holidays, in general the resort is good, quite large distances between places, like getting from my room to the pool was a 10 min walk... and it was the private beach... in the hotel, it's just big... Good breakfast buffet, good service. The spa was ok, not impressed wit the Jacuzzi and the steam room, for such... More

I stayed here for a week with my husband and two teenage kids in April. The positives about the hotel are: ten minutes from the main Abu Dhabi airport and Yas Island, door staff/porters are extremely friendly and helpful, the hotel is beautifully decorated and kept very clean, the swimming pool is of a nice temperature and the area is...

I paid with my air miles so can't comment on value for money. Hotel is smart, well kept, well furnished and presented although not supremely elegant. You probably have to go up another £100 a night to the next level of hotel ( park hyatt, st Regis) if you want the designer look. The welcome is warm and well organised... More

Check-in time was 14:00 but I arrived at o9:15 due to flight schedules. The room was not ready but the receptionist... More

On a very short notice I decided to travel to Abu Dhabi. The breadth of 4* and 5* Hotels makes it difficult to choose but all in all I was very happy with my choice. The Al Raha convinces with a modern and chic atmosphere while staying true to the Arabic flair - as you would expect it when traveling... More
