Radisson Blu Hotel, Abu Dhabi Yas Island

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 2, 2014

I have stayed at this property on and off since it opened 4 years ago. During my most recent stay it became apparent that there had been a big change in staff members and something unfortunately had slipped.

I had to look for familiar faces to get things right. Similarly, the decor (carpets) in the bedroom floors are now very much showing their age. Regular vacuuming would help.

These comments are meant as constructive not destructive as I still think it is the most welcoming and best value in the region

Room Tip: Best rooms are poolside

My family and I stayed at this hotel for six nights. This is an excellent hotel for families with great amenities including two very good restaurants, great access to the beach, nearby family activities, golf, etc....We would love to stay hear again on our next visit. Special thanks to the front door staff including Kola the doorman who greeted us with a very big smile each and every morning.

Keep up the great work.

It was for business but thanks to all employee to make it as a holiday. The room was big and very comfartable. The location is in the middle of Yas Island and very close to Ferrari World + Water Park. There is also a public bus in front of the hotel to Abu Dhabi. Breakfast was awesome, pool was big enough. I only have positive memories about my stay. The best part I really liked is late check out. If they have enough rooms they let you check out late.

Room Tip: higher floors and the rooms on the corners are always better for me :) much quite..

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights to break up our return journey from Kerala.

The rooms are nice and spacious and very clean with excellent amenities. Our room looked out onto the yas viceroy and the f1 track. The bed is soft and very comfortable and the staff make you feel very welcome.

We stayed b&b and the breakfast was lovely with a lot of selection ranging from European, Asian and local cuisines with something for everyone. We ate our breakfast outside overlooking the pool and the sea with lovely views making it feel even more relaxed.

The hotel is based on yas island which is a little out of the way from Abu Dhabi city centre but the hotel puts on a free shuttle bus, which takes about 50 mins and drops you off outside the mall, which is easy distance to all the main attractions.

We were well looked after and we really enjoyed our time here and would definitely return.

We are actually on our 2nd night staying in the radisson and I am deeply disappointed living in Dubai we thought it was the perfect get away!
Firstly upon check in we were told we couldn't have 2 travel cots despite the fact we have twins eventually after seeing the twins she understood we needed two. We then waited 4 hours and had many calls to reception before we received 2 broken cots with cigarette burns on one of them the babies ended up in bed with us last night!
Today the hell continued...I went to the pool to find it was freezing (not an understatement) as was the kids pool (my 2 were shivering and blue after 10 minutes) now trying to contain 16 month olds is not an easy thing if you can imagine eventually it did heat up!
Finally I complained about everything and to be fair they were understanding to an extent...however the cots weren't changed until nearer to night time.
At the pool I ordered food for my self and boys (hubby was playing golf by now) 20 mins later I still had only 1 high chair, no drink! 45 minutes later the food came...stone cold!
I've stayed in radissons before and choose this because of the location but can honestly say will be looking elsewhere next time!

We stayed 1 night when attending an event at the Du arena, that is a 20 minute walk so no need for taxi. Room and hotel was fantastic the breakfast had a good choice. Only poor thing was the swimming pool was under maintenance.we would defiantly stay again and recommend.
