My partner and I spent the weekend in Abu Dhabi and stayed in this hotel.I booked this through my SPG points. The location of the hotel is perfect, just right within the city. When we arrived, there was no one by the entrance to welcome us or help us with our small luggage. It was a small bag so we didn't mind. The check in was a breeze and the receptionist, Ricardo, was very helpful. He upgraded our club room to a junior suite. He even provided us with late check-out for the next day. All of the staff members that we have had encountered are very helpful, always have a smile and are knowledgeable about the places to see in Abu Dhabi. We loved the breakfast buffet. They have a wide variety of food choices available. There are several restaurants within the hotel grounds which is like the Irish Village in Dubai.
We spent our afternoon at the spa. The massage was great and the jacuzzi is amazing. Outside, there were two swimming pools and sun beds. In fact, there's a wee bit too much of the sun beds around that there's only a little space to walk around. On the side of the pool was a big bird cage and a lawn area. They have a private beach overlooking the huge buildings. While I lounged by the beach, I had this thought that I am on a holiday but these buildings are reminding me to get back to work! haha!
Our room was a bit dark. I do understand the idea of blackout curtains but the furniture, the carpet and the dim lighting just made the whole room darker. The bathroom is clean but doesn't have a spray washer. There's a bidet but doesn't work properly for cleansing. We didn't bother to ask the hotel about it, besides it's so two thousand and late!
Generally, the hotel staff and the food are superb. The management should do something about the rooms and the hotel itself. Maybe some re-painting will do as renovation could be a major thing.
But we'll be definitely go back and visit again.
