Stayed here for two nights for my husband's birthday. The service was exceptional from the moment we checked in and were helped to our room. We stayed in an Executive Suite which was huge with lots of lovely extras including fresh roses, wide selection of teas and coffees and Bulgari toiletries. The balcony was huge overlooking the beach and Abu Dhabi mosque.
As part of our room we were entitled to use the Horizon Club lounge. They served afternoon tea and then alcoholic drinks and canapés between 6pm and 8pm with a nice terrace to sit outside on. We could also use it for breakfast but chose to eat in the main restaurant where there was a vast selection. Probably one of the best breakfast selections I have seen in a Middle East hotel.
The pool here is lovely and a good temperature which made a nice change from the freezing temperatures hotels normally cool it to. Nice touches during the day such as a cool box with water, someone who comes and cleans your sunglasses and offers you fruit. The pool bar is good and again fantastic service.
We ate in Pearls and Caviar which has a great setting over the water overlooking the mosque. They also presented my husband with a birthday cake which was a nice touch, even though there was no way we would be able to eat it all as it was huge. There are also lots of other restaurants in the Souk next to the hotel including the Meat Co where we also ate.
My only complaint about this hotel is we couldn't stay longer.
