“Brilliant location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

This hotel has an outstanding location in direct vicinity of Yas links, Ferrari world and Water World. If you stay here book a sea view room. This is truly worth it.

Service felt a bit detached and hotel amenities are average.

Overall good place to stay for short stop overs, business or Yas activity holidays.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

The hotel is in a row of many other hotels on Yas Island. The views are great from the room, overlooking water and a golf course and the bathroom is amazing (modern and big). There are loungers and towels available next to the rather small pool (most of it was undergoing repairs). Its in close vicinity to the rest of the attractions on the island. If you want to get to Abu Dhabi, its quite far from where the hotel is located. The rooms have good sound proofing as airplanes tend to zoom by every few hours. Good option if you are there for a concert/water park/theme park.

Room Tip: A higher room will help you avoid sounds from the pool.

Good place to stay for few days on business trip.
In Yas Island which is close to AD airport some 15-20mins away.

Friendly & helpful staff.
Clean and spacious room. Very good, modern gym facilities.

Would stay here again for business travel.

Room Tip: ask for room facing golf course

We stayed in the hotel for two nights! Quite impressed with the hotel. We upgraded to the business class at a discounted price upon check-in as part of the Christmas promotion. The view from the room is amazing!! Service was very goood..
The pool was closed when we were here, which was a letdown as we were looking forward to it. Also, the shuttle buses to the city are not at all dependable.. We wanted to catch it twice, but were asked to take our own transport both the times as the 'bus was full'.. It was just a van with a capacity of 7 ppl for the entire hotel, running twice a day! Not dependable if you are banking on it! Better to catch a neighboring hotel's shuttle to the mall (they had mini-buses) Big turnoff that was both the times..

this is 4 star hotel but you can get 5 star hotel service even better than most of them. the design is so nice it is 70 decade style .we have great view of golf course in our room which has enough space .I think the chef of restaurant was so expert because we could find great food there .friendly staffs and good environment. if one day I want to travel to Abu Dhabi I will never search for a new hotel just repeat my experience in this hotel.

I stayed twice there, the rooms are nice and clean. The bathrooms are really good and modern.
The pool is nice and got enough space to swim and relax.
The breakfast buffet is fairly ok. The Mexican restaurant is nice for dinner and drinks.

I recommend that hotel for a weekend escape or family short trip

It's close to Ferrari world and yas water park

Valet parking available and for pick up trucks also parking outside possible

The Radisson Blu Hotel is great place to stay when wanting to visit Abu Dhabi but yet be "away" from the city .. its a 30 km drive into the heart of the city , but with great roads that is not a bother .
The rooms are clean , bright and functional .
My room was overlooking the Yas Links Golf Course , so was soothing and a welcome sight..
The bed is comfortable and the amenities etc are on par with what you expect from such a property .
In a nutshell its "value for money "...

Room Tip: Suggest that you ask fora Golf course facing room..
