“Incredible stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Usually we do travel a lot, and experience a lot of hotels and resorts, but this time my wife and I decided to stay in Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche Hotel.
The staff are great and well trained, they eased up our stay in so many ways and in different actions, for example when we checked in, they welcomed us with a refreshing tasty drink and a refreshment towel, then this guy Ezat, he approached us greeting and welcoming with a lovely smile on his face and a hand shake. (you wont see that a lot in other hotels.)
He didn't let go of us but in on the contrary he waited till we finished the check in and then escorted us to the elevators while explaining all the details for us regarding the hotel and its outlets.
At first we asked him if he is the FOM but he humbly said that he is the supervisor. He was so funny and alive and gave us a lot of his time which we did appreciate, so due to that we kept on talking to him for like 10 minutes. He promised us one thing that we will enjoy our stay, and that what happened, we took his word for granted and he was right, WE LOVED OUR STAY IN YOUR HOTEL...
On the other hand, everything was perfect and professional , the front office team, the housekeeping and the food. We were dazzled in our stay and for sure we will come again.
I advice everyone to try this hotel and experience all this, it was a fantastic, incredible and unforgettable stay.

The staff was helpful to solve our problem. They are service-minded. They are not unbusinesslike.

The hotel still almost new. The decoration is modern. At night the entrance aeras is are filled with the scents of incense and perfumed candels, You are just like immersed in the mystery of East. We sense the magic and mystery of the East, with its voluptuous perfumes.

I will definitively recommend it.
Enjoy an Abu Dhabi experience, with a of French touche of luxury.

Room Tip: A nice view of the city and the water at the 18th floor.

After the trip from hell with Etihad we arrive at 1am at the hotel. Slight issue at check in they had no non smoking king rooms available
1. First offer was a smoking king room hmm not the best offer travelling with a 1yr old and a 5 years old.......
2. Second offer Next offer was a twin room advised this was fine as long a "double" twins no just standard beds advised sorry just standard single therefore not suitable.
3. Third offer a twin room tonight and then move advise them not practical as where will 5 year old sleep and a hassle to move room

The hotel kindly upgraded us to a Suite! However I feel that I should not have had to go through the above for this to happen quite simply the hotel oversold itself although was fully aware of our late arrival.

The suite itself was sensational only complaint was it seemed to "share" the air con with next door a smoking room that was smoking and therefore for a day the room smelled of cigars!

That is where my negativity ends in particular the staff could not enough for us from getting just apple juice for our son at breakfast to the pool boys keep my baby daughter amused!!! Just a great experience and will be back!!!!
