This was the second time we came to stay at Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi in the frame of the Abu Dhabi International Triathlon.
It is located conveniently to go for a morning run alongside the beach road (the Corniche).
Food & Beverages:
The generous breakfast times during week days until 10:30am and 11:30am on weekends allow you to take all the time you need at the buffet offering an extensive variety of literally all you would expect at a buffet. I could not think of anything missing. We did not try the lunch buffet but dinner buffet at "The Garden" was just as perfect including the desserts. You should absolutely try their Lemon Ice Tea with a blend of fresh mint!
If you are more into Pizza and Pasta then "Spaccanapoli" is your place to go at the hotels mezzanine floor. Here I've seen the longest pizza ever (1 meter long) which was tempting, but following the triathlon I opted for "Pizza all you can eat" :) Authentic taste is all I can say!
The rooms are spacious, very clean and the beds are so comfortable!
The hotel's staff is helpful and very friendly making you feel welcome.
During our stay they were conducting a routine test of the fire alarm system, which was announced via loudspeaker by a non-native english speaking voice. We met an old lady on the corridor who was puzzled because all she understood was "fire alarm". I explained it was only a test. It would help having a native speaker (even if recorded) do the announcement of the test. The strong accent of the announcing voice is really difficult to understand.
All in all the service, quality of food and beverages and level of comfort is great and absolutely recommendable. We'll be back again next year. Looking forward to it already.
