“Nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I would recommend this hotel for people staying for a day or two. If you would like to stay for more than two days and do lots of sightseeing in Abu Dhabi then I recommend choosing a hotel more in the centre of Abu Dhabi as Yas Island is about a 30-45min drive. Other than that it is a good hotel with very friendly staff.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Far from the center of Abu Dhabi, but close to the rather noisy car circuit (even audible on the balcony of the room on the opposite side). We had a one-bedroom suite, spacious modern and good value for money with a rather nice view but the noise of the circuit almost constantly present, as already mentioned.
Acces to the lounge was included, but the snacks are scarce and not very good. Buffet breakfast had a large choice but a crowded atmosphere. The italian restaurant is hopelessly overpriced for the low quality food that it offers.

I stayed 2 nights at Radisson Blu Yas Island in Abu-Dhabi. It was an excellent hotel, located a little far from downtown, but I contracted a big bus tour and the pick up point was right across the hotel. Located near the airport (only 5 minutes ride), rooms spacious, good climate control, restaurant quality and breakfast selection was very good.
Staff very attentive, held our luggage until we came back from tour the last day. Very organized, internet service great, overall experience 9 out of 10.
I will stay again.

We (my husband, 17 year old son and I) stayed at the hotel in Dec 2012. We arrived at about 7:30 in the morning and were accomodated with an early check in. My husband and I upgraded to a superior room at a minimal cost. It was the corner room on the 4th floor - it was really worth it. The staff were extremely efficient, professional and helpful in all areas. The breakfast and dinner selections were very good. The concierge was most helpful. Management was very visible and interacted with us frequently. The hotel was perfectly located to visit Ferrari World and the Yas Marina Circuit. We returned to the hotel after our stay in Abu Dhabi town as we had a racing experience on the day of our departure at the Yas Marina Circuit. The concierge assisted by keeping our lugguge for us when we went into town. This hotel is a must return for us. They also have a free shuttle service to and from Abu Dhabi town.

We stayed here after a long day at the Ferrari World. The rooms are very spacious and service was excellent. The hotel is about 5 minutes drive from Ferrari World. People traveling with kids and family can really use this good hotel to crash after a tiring day. Usually, there is a grand dinner in the evening and will be perfect to finish your day. This place is also not too far from the Abu Dhabi airport.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights en route to Bangkok. I had been in contact with the hotels manager Craig Bruce, before departure requesting an early check in, especially asxwexwere travelling with a one year old and would be arriving around 8am (official check in is after 2pm) the hotel was very helpful and prompt in answering my emails and on arrival the manager introduced himself and I think we got in the room around 10.30 after having breakfast at the hotels receptionists suggestion. On arrival in our room it was spacious and clean and they had down a lovely turndown service and ran a bath full of rise petals as it was our anniversary which was a lovely touch.
I couldn't really fault the hotel in terms of service snd cleanliness, the pool area was lovely , especially the cabana beds and it was a great place to recharge batteries before our next destination.
The only negative I could mention which is not really about the hotel is about yas island itself as I was a little disappointed as to what was there, I expected shops and restaurants around the marina etc but it really was like a ghost town and everything is centred around the hotels, there wasn't even a local shop where we could buy milk for the baby, we had to get on a transfer bus to the mall around 30 mins away (free from the hotel) which I thought was a little crazy for such a big place, however it's just 10 mins from the airport so ideal if you want to just relax en route to another destination.
