It was a wonderful stay in a very nice room. The swimming pool with lovely sunbeds is on the roof. In particular, the care of the lifeguard Guru, who, kept a close eye on safety, made the stay very pleasant. Thank you Guru and I wish to see you again!

Issue is my door had a "Do not disturb" mode but the housekeeping keep coming knocking and attempting to get in twice, imagine your getting change then housekeeping knocking all you hear is the door clicking coz his getting in, panic mode attack. Then in the mid night deep slept woken up coz guest next door banging door screaming. What a stay. Not pleasant at all

Very comfortable stay, highly likely to stay again. Pros - clean, location, facilities are very good (gym). Cons - toilet has a door with gap at the top with poor vents if you are sharing with family and friends this is not ideal, breakfast is 3/5. Plenty of choice but quality could be better. So im being picky in my review. Overall would stay again for sure. Shout out to Sreekanth and lyka on the front desk. Gerald in the restaurant M1 was superb with his service. If you re picky like me go with this place. Solid 4 stars

I visited this hotel a few times now, for a meal. I tried the brunch and the hotel pub. At each time, I was left mesmerized by the quality and effort that goes into making sure each dish tastes great. The ladies happy hour offer was awesome value for money for 3 drinks and a snack. The portions were big and very filling. The chicken satay was my favorite and very flavorful. The chicken handi is one of the most unique and tastiest dishes I have had at this hotel. The smoked taste of the chicken is quite unlike any places I have tried before. The chilli mushroom was my next favorite. My friend requested it to be extra crispy and it was simply delicious. The portions sizes are decent and filling. The price is very reasonable. The brunch at Balcon was definitely value for money. It was great variety including a small range of seafood and alcoholic cocktails. The talented singer provided in-house entertainment that kept everyone smiling and happy. There’s also a kids corner to keep kids busy while the parents eat, which is very useful. I havnt stayed at the hotel yet, however I would definitely compliment The Southern Sun Abu Dhabi Food and beverage team for their efforts.

A wonderful hidden gem of a hotel. With the most beautiful rooms. Very spacious and modern. A shower and a bath. The food is outstanding. The iftar 10/10 the chefs and staff in the restaurant are friendly and welcoming. The staff on reception are brilliant. I have been going for more than 5 years and Mohammed, Yazid, Muzaffar, Julie and Maksoud are so professional and friendly. I fully reccomend this hotel and will always call it my second home.
