“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Stayed at Raddisson Blu for the whole month of May and the service was excellent. The hotel and services were great and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. A big thank you to Lajith, Rajesh, Jaykie, Antony, Shutaneek, Pavan and Mohammad (the shisha guru). Will definitely recommend to others and will definitely stay there next time I am in Abu Dhabi!!

This hotel probably lives for the one weekend a year when the F1 is on. The rest of the year it is a standard business chain and with these places you usually don't get a lot of luxury. Given the reasonable price that is understandable. However, this hotel is surprisingly good and is somewhere that you could bring your other half for a romantic weekend. The restaurants are ok, the pool is pleasant and the rooms are pretty nice all things considered. The best thing about the hotel is the view over the island and the mangroves towards the sea. It is really spectacular. I hope it stays that way and does not succumb to the developers.
The negatives – the Mexican restaurant allows smoking at the bar so is a bit smelly but the service was good even if the food was ok at best. Carpets in the rooms (yuk!) and no standing showers.

Room Tip: Ask for a room oversooking the mangroves.

Radisson Blu hotel has excellent customer service which is a routine philosophy displayed by the entire hotel team. Professionally managed by the General Manager "Mr. Craig Bruce" who supervises a group of extremely competent asst. managers and staff. All restaurants employ the best Chefs and hostesses who are friendly and professional. The Spa is a great place to culminate a busy day - The Deep Tissue massage and Swedish Massages are awesome!

I was in UAE on business several days out of the year and chose to stay at Radisson Blu over many other more expensive hotels because of their customer service, quiet and scenic location over looking a beautiful golf course that is challenging, all in a very secure environment. The cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai are easily accessible by a short highway drive.

Room Tip: Room with Balcony to view the beautiful sunsets over Abu Dhabi.

The entire staff was polite and helpful our entire stay. My mom used a wheelchair and Peter and others out front always helped her into the car and placed the wheelchair in the trunk. Upon our return they retrieved the chair and helped her into it. Always friendly smiling faces. Pakkio, Shanhnoza, and Rhea also went beyond expectations with their helpfulness. It was refreshing to be greeted each day with smiling, eager to please staff. The food was fabulous in the Assymetry Restaurant. Coffee from around the world, fresh squeezed juices, shrimp, lobster, lamb and a lot more. Prepared to perfection by fantastic chefs. The wait staff was great too - Indra, Minta, Linday and the others made dining an extreme pleasure. The pools were great and picturesque. The view from our room was breathtaking, overlooking a PGA class golf course and the Arabian Sea. I'm going to bring my wife next time and will definitely stay at the Radisson Blu at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

I just was passing through here from a tiring flight. Room on "business level" was outstanding! Clean and well maintained. Very spacious. Great internet! The missing remote control in the room was replaced very quickly. Well done!

Staff is very friendly.

I had to wait a while in the lobby and it was a very pleasant and nice experience to see the various cultures navigating the large room.

Unfortunately I didn't have time for the pool, but it made a really good impression! Would love to go back there!

I had a breakfast on the business level. Was not wow, but good enough to start the day!
