I am going to Abu Dhabi in September to get married in St andrews centre. I want to make sure I am not disappointed in the hotel accommodation. Which hotel is the best? There may be 16 of us (only one 2 year old) the rest mostly 30 somethings. Staying for 8 nights. We were looking at the Sheraton resort and towers, Le Meridien, Le Royal Meridien and the Millenium but are open to suggestions. We are planning on getting our engagement and wedding rings while here - where is the best place to go? I read in another forum that the gold souk on Hamdan St is closing down? We want somewhere that has it all (doesn't everyone!). One question was about the beaches, having been to Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Jumeriah Beach Dubai (which was out of this world) will I be disappointed by the beach and views from Abu Dhabi coastline? Also is the Sheraton right on the beach or do you have to cross the Corniche road to get there? Finally I've read a lot of reviews saying that the service in Le Meridien is poor and staff are rude is this true. Thanks for all replies!!!
