relaxed, fun and enjoyable experience with family. Hotel and room facilities are clean and to the highest standard. Nothing is too much trouble. However pool service can be somewhat slow, we live in Abu Dhabi and do have a bit of an expectation But have visited twice in 6 weeks :)

We stayed here in April 2014 for four nights. We had a Business Class Room booked after getting a good deal from Expedia.

A Business Class Room in this Hotel is sea facing, has a balcony, free Breakfast and has access to a Business Class Lounge that has complimentary drinks and nibbles in the evening.

Check-in was a breeze and had no issues. We were given a choice of a King Room or a Twin Room for which they also showed us both rooms before making a final choice. We chose the King Room, as we had two children. Due to our two children being under 12, they gave us a rollaway bed and did not charge for it. I did not ask for it, so I felt this was really good of them to offer this to us.

We had a Hire Car and our luggage was unloaded and the car was valet parked for that one occasion. At other times we parked ourselves. The car park is below the Hotel (underground), but has direct lift access to the reception area.

Luggage arrived in the room quickly with no issues and soon after the rollaway bed.

The rooms are very spacious, even with the roll away bed. They were very clean and housekeeping did an excellent job each day. Inside the room there is an Iron with Ironing board, Coffee/Tea maker and also a lockable Safe. The Bathroom was also very clean. The only minor issue was that the Balcony light was not working or I did not know how to switch it on, despite looking and trying every switch I could find. However, this is very minor. Further about housekeeping, all the housekeeping staff were very welcoming and even asked when it would be the best time to clean the room.

As mentioned above in a Business Class room, there is access to a Business Class Lounge, which in the evening has complimentary drinks and nibbles in the evening. This area also has access to a Balcony. Under 18's are not allowed, so they allowed us to take the nibbles and drinks back to the room, as long as we bought the plates back. I felt this was really thoughtful of them and adds another nice touch to our stay. We only used this twice due to being out at other times.

The pool area is well maintained and clean. The sun beds are available are on a first come, first serve access, but when we went about 10.30am there were plenty free. There are some sun beds that are similar to the ones you would find in a cabana (size of a king size bed), but they get filled up very quickly and are free to use. The staff at poolside were very attentive. We had an inflatable floater for the children and they pumped this up for us. We ordered some food on one occasion and this came quickly and the quality was good.

As mentioned above our room included free breakfast. There is a great choice of breakfast available and the service again was faultless. If item was finished it would quickly get replenished. On some days it did get very busy.

The location of the Hotel is directly opposite Yas Island F1 Circuit and about five minute drive to the Yas Water Park and Ferrari World. So good access if you want to go to the above. However, if you want to go to the main parts of Abu Dhabi, then are look at, for example, a 30 min ride to the Emirates Palace Hotel. There are no places to eat nearby, except in the Hotel and other Hotels. There is a Yas Island Marina, but we did not go there so I can't comment. Taxis are in plenty outside the Hotel. I do understand that there is going to be a Yas Island Mall opening in November 2014, so this of course will have many places to eat.

The Hotel is also has an ATM near the reception desk.

Overall a fantastic stay and would recommend.

I am a long stay guest with Radisson Blu. The staff is always helpful, but specifically I would like to recognize one of the guest service specialists, Kola. He always greets you with a smile, and is very willing to go the extra mile to make those of us here year round feel like we are back home.

The Radisson Blu is a great place to stay in Abu Dhabi. It has excellent rooms and a nice restaurant. The location is good (close to the airport), though a little far if you wish to reach the city. Most of all, the knowlegable staff provide good information on the area. A good value (relatively speaking).

I have just returned from 3 day holiday with my family and friends, stayed at the Radisson Blu.we stayed for holiday and visited the Ferrari Theme park and Waterworld. What a fantastic holiday we had. The hotel is 1st class, the staff could not do enough for you, food excellent. Everything you could ask for, great location. Plenty for the children.

The Breakfast buffet has got lot of varieties.The chef who made the omelette is so professional and was quick in delivering the order.The service staff are well trained and speedy in service,even when the restaurant was full.We were impressed by Mr.jith ,Manager of the restaurant,the way he deals with the guest in a highly professional manner,especially the way how he helped us to get some special food,apart from the buffet with a great smile on his face.He is an asset to the hotel.

The hotel has a great outdoor pool with an attached kids pool.The poolside staff are very friendly and they are always available whenever we need some food and drinks.Mr. Indra was very kind and helpful.I would highly recommend for all family and singles. From the moment you walk in the hotel you are made to feel special.

The Hotel has a really nice and beautyful Poolarea. Big arrangements of breakfast, but the best of all were the very friendly Lifeguards at the pool who plays with the kids and the special professionell service from the concierge Ahsan.

Familyholidays with two teens, visited Yas waterworld and Ferrari world. Good place for that.
