“What a pleasure to stay here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

This is the first time we have stayed at this hotel although our 4th trip to Abu Dhabi and what a pleasure. It is the best so far and total value for money. We arrived at 08h00 and we were able to check into our room immediately. The room was great, the best night’s sleep I have ever had you even have a choice of pillows. Always plenty of bottled water, tea, coffee and milk in the room. The beach and pool area were wonderful and being adjoined to the Abu Dhabi Mall was a bonus.The only thing i was not too keen on was having to walk through the lobby area in swimming attire to get to the pool area. The staff is extremely professional, courteous and helpful. We will definitely stay here again and can highlyrecommend it

I must admit that I wasn't sure that I would like this hotel before we arrived. The pictures on it's website do not do it justice. Beach Rotana is as good or better than any five star hotel in the U.S. (Ritz or Four Seasons) It is a very nice hotel and the location was execellent for doing business in Abu Dhabi as well as relaxing. The fact that is was connected to a large mall was really a bonus because it is so hot this time of year in Abu Dhabi that it was nice to be able to go for a walk in the A/C. You really didn't need to leave the hotel area for dining or any other conveniences. Overall, the restaurants in the hotel were a good variety. We ate at all of them except for the steakhouse because $100 USD for just a filet seemed a little ridiculous even on an expense account. The concierge at the hotel is fantastic. They arranged for car services throughout the entire stay. I highly recommend using the hotel arranged car service. It is very reasonsable. We rented a car for 12 hours with a driver who took us to meetings in Abu Dhabi and then to Dubai. The driver acted as a tour guide and was fantastic. The cost was only 1000 dirham (270 USD) plus tip for a Mercedes. Overall, the service at the hotel is fantastic. It is better than what you would pay $700 per night for in the New York and we paid on $300 for an upgraded room.

The Beach Rotana is without doubt, one of the best Hotels in Abu Dhabi - the attention to detail is second to none. The whole experience of staying here was certainly worth the reasonable price.

I particularly enjoyed the various Restaurants/Bars for their ambience, food and general level of service.

I'll certainly be back!

One of the best hotels, might even be the best, I have stayed in for service, rooms, amenities and food. Staff were all extremely friendly. The hotel was spotless. It is also worth taaking a boat around the island from the hotel.

Room Tip: When you book on line, choose an upgrade if available on checkin to CLUB CLASS.

We made a stop over on return journey to Australia in September 2012 to break up the long journey but would certainly return to Beach Rotana at Abu Dhabi. There was nothing that we could fault, the staff were so attentive and friendly and helped us in every request we had.
The Zen Spa was a wonderful relaxing experience after having 3 weeks of touring around south of France. We were also amazing how wonderful the food was in the hotel dining room, such a variety and again staff there was so helpful, even the chef popped out to say hello everytime we were there.
Definitely one of the friendliest hotels we have stayed at unfortunately we only had a couple of days but will certainly return.

i loved the friendly staff.. i loved the room.. i loved the view from the room.. i loved the service.

very nicely decorated large rooms.. one of the best in abu dhabi.. great value for money.

very rich breakfast included in the rate.

in general the food experience was amazing.

the only thing that i didnt like was the 90 Dirhams charge for the internet per day.. thats ALOT.

otherwise, can't find anything to complain about

Room Tip: try to get a room with sea view
