Hotel's Favorite
My son and I have stayed here for 11 days, and have had a wonderful holiday. We stayed on the Fairmont Gold floor in two beautiful rooms looking out over the Sheik Zayed Grand Mosque. Zineb, one of the very helpful reception team, kindly found us interconnecting rooms and an upgraded view. The hotel is in a beautiful position, and the pool area and beach are well kept. We had no problem finding loungers each day, and the pool was never over-crowded. Our rooms were large and well appointed, and I particularly appreciated the beautiful bathroom! The hotel uses LABO toiletries in the rose scent, and these feel like a real treat. Our housekeeper, Benyani, was very friendly and checked on us each day. Nothing was too much trouble, and we thank him and his colleagues on the housekeeping team. We stayed on a full board basis and ate each day in one of three restaurants. Our hands down favourite was Marcos Italian, where the food was wonderful and the whole staff team made us so welcome. The main buffet restaurant, CuiScene, offers a good range of food for breakfast and for evening meals. The third restaurant, Majaz, serves Lebanese food. Michael, one of the concierge team, went out of his way to help us organise trips and days out. He was so patient, and found us trips that absolutely suited our interests. The sunset visit to the Grand Mosque will stay in our memories for a very long time.

The location on the sea and having a sandy beach gives the impression of a seaside resort where you just unwind and enjoy the time you spend there Rooms are large, well decorated and the cleaning people are very nice and diligent The 5 restaurants are serving very good food from various origins and all meals are tasty The outdoor bar serves good cocktails and is overlooking the grand mosque with dim light at sunset. Good relaxing there after a busy working day Last but certainly not least, all the staff is extremely nice, helpful and diligent to address any problem you might have. Special thanks to the breakfast team and the Valet parking I have been several times in this hotel already and plan to be back soon

Fairmont is my number one getaway hotel and for very good reason, I always stay at a canal view room the rooms are spacious and have large windows with peaceful views over the canal and grand mosque, various restaurants all with great food, and facilities like the well designed pool and beach as well as water activities, I never even feel the need to leave the hotel, a special thanks to Roy and Marie for fantastic service during my stay they helped me surprise my husband for his birthday and made sure we had everything we needed from amenities, to set up and lovely swan towel decor 😍 Always a happier person than when I arrive:)

Two years delay did not dampen our excitement to return, and the Fairmont family in Abu Dhabi did not disappoint. The hotel is under going a discreet and sympathetic restoration, at no time during our stay did this impact our experience and we are looking forward to our next visit to see the transformation in full. Although you cant improve on perfection ie the members of staff who make your stay special. We visited during the Eid Al-Fitr period of Ramadan Abu Dhabi has made a concious effort to make this religious time more inclusive for non Muslim visitors. We would not hesitate to return during this time in the future. The hotel remains our favorite irs centrally located, has a private beach, spacious rooms, clean and sanitised public areas with fantastic food and service. All you would expect of a 5* hotel and more. We've seen more family's visiring in 2022 rather than business guests Although the mix remains even which is a testament to the facalites, the hotel staff and its owners. Nothing is too much trouble definitely our home from the in the UAE 🇦🇪.. Our next visit must be with our grandson so he can take part in the children's activities and experience the dedicated childrens pool. If possible chose a creek room for the best view of the Grand Mosque, The souq and new Aquarium with its cafes and restaurants is only a short walk away if you fancy an evening stroll.
