“Nice weekend in AD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

I live in Dubai and booked two nights at the Shangri-La at the last minute for a weekend getaway. I had spent some time there before for business and pleasure in the hotels. The hotel is very nice and clean with attentive staff. The pool area is beautiful with a great view of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque. The most impressive thing to me was that the lifeguard came over to my chair and cleaned my sunglasses. He walked around with an eyeglass cleaning kit and asked each guest if they would like their glasses cleaned. Another attendant walked around with cold aromatherapy towels, which was perfect in the June heat. I booked this hotel at the last minute on Orbitz and could not be more pleased with the experience. I will definitely return.

The welcoming of traditional Arab coffee was a great refresher once you walk in the door. The hotel is of such a grand stature, I wish we had more time to explore . The Sofra bld bfeakfast was amazing and one must experience this at at least once during their stay.

Room Tip: Try to get room view of the mosque. Quite pretty over sunset !

Last year, my husband and I visited Abu Dhabi to celebrate our wedding anniversary- we stayed at the Traders hotel and were fortunate enough to use all of the facilities at the Shangri-La hotel. (Please beware if your staying at the Traders, use of the Shangri-La pool is no longer available).
We loved our trip so much, we decided to return to celebrate our anniversary again! This year we stayed at the Shangri-La and it was an amazing trip! In every way, everything was perfect! The facilities, the food, the room etc... But most of all I must highly commend the STAFF! There are no staff quiet like the team at the Shangri-La any where else in the world! They are simply fantastic! And these people are what make your stay here so special! We will definitely be returning next year! 5 stars! Enjoy!

Excellent hotel, excellent staff, excellent experience! Complimentary flowers given to my wife on arrival and anniversary cake waiting in room, nice touch. The premier room was very spacious and free wifi, water and fruit was not expected. Pool staff were very efficient and ensured complimentary cold water was always by your side. Would certainly book there again.

Stayed for a week at this superb hotel, probably the best in Abu Dhabi. Could not fault any of the staff in fact I couldn't pick any one person out as they were all superb. The food was first class, the breakfast buffet was to die for everything from steak to chocolate fountain! Our room was fantastic with a separate study and a dressing room, and a huge bathroom. Attention to detail was obvious to all. I will return to this fabulous hotel.

This hotel is truly amazing. From the moment you check in you know you are somewhere special. The reception staff are so helpful and efficient. The rooms are spacious and truly beautiful and provide everything you could need and the view!! The restaurants we tried were all excellent and the buffet breakfast is one of the best I have ever had. Each and every member of staff go above and beyond their remit to make sure you have a wonderful holiday. It's difficult to single out any members of staff but Patricia, on the concierge desk was just fantastic. The restaurant manager and his assistant in the Sofra bld are the best. The little touches provided throughout your stay just add the finishing touch. This truly is Shangri La!

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the Grand Mosque
