“Very comfy hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2011

Great hotel on Yas Island - fantastic bar, restaurants (especially Barouk) and rooms. The pool is lovely. Only issue I would say is the sundry shop is extremely limited, and often closed so head to the Radisson Blu or Centro if you need anything.

Very helpful staff at reception who pointed out room/B&B upgrades we might like to take advantage of. Had a wonderful room with great views. Very modern and new. Glass walled en-suite bathroom was unusual.
Sat outside the bar sipping gin and tonics, very quiet and relaxing. Excellent attentive staff but pity there was no drinks/cocktails menu. We were told it had not been printed yet as hotel had only recently opened. Think they could have got this organised in time for opening!
Only stayed one night, wish it had been longer. My husband had an excellent pedicure.
Would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is located close to Ferrari World (which was opened in November 2010) and the Yas Marina Circuit which recently held it's first grand prix. Yas Island is a completely new development and it would be best to visit the place in a couple of years time as a lot work is still being done.

In terms of location, although it looks close enough to Ferrari World and the Yas Marina Circuit, it is about 10 AED cab ride from the hotel. The Grand Mosque is about 50 AED cab ride, so is the Abu Dhabhi Marina Mall, Emirates Palace Hotel and Mina Bazaar. The hotel has shuttles to Abu Dhabhi Marina Mall with stops close to the Grand Mosque etc. The shuttles leave the hotel at 10 AM, 12 PM, 2 PM & 4 PM. You have to inform the reception should you choose to use the shuttle services.

The hotel itself is fantastic and grand. The staff are friendly and the inhouse restaurants servce excellent fare. There are two restaurants in house Jing Asia and Barouk, the Lebanese Restaurant. The hotel also has the Sundowner pool bar as well as Stills, Bar & Brasserie. We had a buffet lunch at Jing Asia on the day of our arrival. The restaurant serves fantastic Pan Asian food. We also had dinner at the Barouk restaurant twice. They serve excellent Lebanese food, Shisha and some great belly dancing. They have decent room service menu with reasonable prices.

The hotel rooms are large and spacious. Ask for a room overlooking the pool as the other side overlooking the Yas Marina Circuit can be dull and boring. The pool itself is a great place to relax.

We traveled to Yas Island after some recommendations from friends and mainly to see Ferrari World and the Yas Marina Circuit. Yas Island itself is quite far from Abu Dhabi, so if your real reason of visiting the City then I would advise against staying in Yas Island.

However, the hotel is a fantastic place for a relaxing getaway.

But Wow! What a Hotel! One of the best! The restaurant is fantatic! I have never seen more seafood than what they had out for their Wed. Night Buffet!. Great Pool a very relaxing place, good staff of freindly people!

A Truly Great Hotel!

Yas Island is developing so, from what I saw in March 2009 there was not too much to see or do, but if your looking for a great remote hotel, for a very relxing stay this would be the place.

Stayed for one night in interconnecting rooms with our 2 teenage sons. We had originally booked the Park Inn on Yas Is. but when we arrived the pool was too small so we went next door to Radisson and the pool was freezing so we walked on to the Crowne Plaza and the pool was a lovely warm temperature and a great size! To top it off there's a squash court and a great gym. The rooms were comfortable and we had a laugh with the bathroom blinds being on the outside of the room! Actually there was an advantage as I was able to watch TV from the bath by pulling the blinds up! There are many hotels close by so you have a fantastic choice of restaurants to choose from. Overall, an excellent stay, can't fault it...we'll definately be back.

Was travelling with my son, and staying there on business. Upgraded at check-in because of Priority Club status - given larger room overlooking pool, golf course and sea with balcony, lounge access, and breakfast. Staff very helpful. Room with twin beds good size. Swimming pool great for laps and gets sun from about 10 through to 4. Use of gym and squash courts was also a bonus for us. I've used several of the other Yas island hotels and this is highly rated in comparison. Will stay again.

Yas island hotels are good for the airport, Ferrari World, F1 race track, Yas Marina, and the golf course. The whole area is new and purpose built. It would wrong to expect a 'city' experience there. You will find world class facilites and services there, but no city life!

A new hotel with good size rooms, balconies, quiet and about 15 minutes from the airport. Yas Island is being developed for the F1 and other sporting events. There are about 5 other hotels but not much more in the vicinity. However taxis are very cheap and it is only about 1 hour from Dubai. Even if you have a couple of days in Abu Dhabi its worth considering as an alternative to the more expensive "downtown" hotels. We also stayed at the Hilton and it was about twice as expensive and there is not much around the Hilton either. Having said that the Mosque is essential viewing and should not be missed.
