We spend more than a month at the Khalidiya Palace Hotel and had the best time ever. Everything was perfect. The hotel amenities are great and the staff is very friendly, warm, professional and helpful. We want to thank Sunday for his warm welcome everytime we entered the hotel and the receptionists for their excellent service. The breakfast and meals at the Horizon restaurant were always very pleasant and delicious. A special thank you to Vanessa for the excellent service provided both at the Horizon restaurant and the kids club. Vanessa is very sweet and efficient, a fantastic waitress and also great with kids. She's really amazing! All in all we recommend this hotel without any hesitation!

Let me tell you that the level of expectation is up to the standard of a 5 star hotel and more. Want to thank Hesham, Bassem for the F&B and the delicious Asian food, who showed exceptional level of hospitality. Michael frontdesk who was flexible to accept our late checkout for our sleeping kid . Gifts for the international day of coffee, what more can i ask. Child friendly, and trying their best and going beyond the extra mile. Its the best place whether you're a family, or couple. Clean, tidy, spacious rooms and relaxing view. The 3 connected pool is one of a kind for adults and children, while there is a seperate pool for little ones and babies. Great gifts and tutorials for the international coffee day . Our yearly anniversary has been always there with their amazing decoration. A place to always return to... ❤️

First off all The sound was more than wonderful. I would like to thank from the beginning the receptionist, Sunday, for his welcome, for his cooperation and respectful manner and the speed of response to our requests for carrying bags. The hotel is very clean. The corridors and lobby are clean and smells beautiful. Beach And pool Very nice My family full enjoyed. Our room is very clean and the Room service Akash and Sushil supervisor was always nice. He always takes care of how satisfied we are in cleaning the room. He was standing and supervising the cleaning of the room himself. A hotel that I highly recommend. I will repeat the visit again because cleanliness is the most important thing for me in the hotel and it is very high. Thank you management of Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan Hotel..

Staff were accommodating especially VANESA, she has added joy to our wonderful breakfast and dinner. I think her motto is go an extra mile with customer service. Wonderful lady who covers our needs and wishes. Our room with a beautiful view 1204 was clean by my good friend USMAN. Thank you Usman for your care and attention for details. The only problem I had here was the internet. Food is amazing there. More than I expected. I was happy to watch how the cook was handling 4 pans on breakfast. Heating ingredients together and remembering customers orders. Well done, I am sorry I do not remember your name. On the reception I remember Anna, very warm and multitasking receptionist. In hotel is a kid’s room, where you can leave your kids and enjoy massage. My little boy was happy to stay there with Dona, which was very patient to my kid. The pool was big and perfect for our kids. Sohanur my son’s best friend. Andrej said Hi to you. :)))) Overall, what will make this hotel standout is the kindness, warmth and hospitality of their staffs. I will be happy to come back to you. xxxx Jana B.

I almost never write restaurant reviews, but I met a waiter there who had to be recognized publicly. Vanessa was her name and she was phenomenal. She catered to me along the three months I stayed in the hotel. She was prompt, smart, caring, and knowledgable about the food. And she just had this friendly demeanor about her that made mealways happy. By the end of my reservation, I recognized that she's the best waiter I've ever had in UAE. By the way, the food is pretty good and the menu is diverse.Overall pretty good place. Thank you Vanessa for the wonderful service!

in general, a good hotel, but be prepared that you will not sleep, there will be construction works under the windows all night, and the hotel rooms are being repaired during the day, the food is normal, there are themed days for dinner, the rest is nothing unusual. the rooms are tired, very high humidity, poor sound insulation, vechevy repair, get into the elevator. it is located far from shopping centers and parks, there is almost nowhere to walk. half of the beach was also closed for repairs, for a five-star hotel it is very weak

Our experience in the hotel was excellent! The service, cleanness, pool, beach, everything was very satisfying. The location of the hotel also is veryyy good, because it’s located in the one of the best districts in Abu Dhabi(for us in the best district). Here are located , in walking distance , Emirates Palace, Etihad Towers with observation deck, Presidential Palace, and Marina mall. The rooms have an exciting view on a Persian Gulf and a pool or city view on a luxurious Emirates Palace.
