“One of the most wonderful stays I have ever had in the UAE and beyond”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

I have lived in the UAE for four years. During that time, I have stayed in a range of 5 - star plus hotels throughout the Emirates, from Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi to both Banyan Tree location in Ras Al Khaimah, the Weldorf, etc. I can honestly say that my most recent stay at Yas Viceroy was the best stay I have had in this country. While many UAE hotels have the physical infrastructure and beauty to wow you, they completely lack service. Untrained and indifferent staff are, unfortunately, the norm. The exact opposite was the case at the Viceroy. Staff were extremely friendly, competent, and wonderful. The rooms were incredible, the views of the F1 track amazing, very sharp and modern...There was nothing left to be desired. Thank you Mr Mohamed Fawzy for making the stay extra special, by sending us chocolates, fruit and flowers. I look forward to coming back here - often.

My husband and I were in the UAE in Ras al-Khaimah for a holiday. As this was during our one year wedding anniversary we decided to hire a car and drive to Abu Dhabi for the night. I came across the top secret hotel option on expedia and on the balance of probabilities worked the 5 star option out to be the Viceroy. We had an excellent day and night there. The adult pool area was fantastic- excellent service- cold face towel brought around by staff was much needed!we enjoyed an excellent meal at the Italian restaurant within the hotel. We visited the race track the next day for the tour- excellent value and a must for any Grand Prix fan. Due to the tour running over our check out the hotel staff were extremely accommodating in delaying our check out. An excellent hotel, tastefully decorated and fantastic service. Would love to return!

We came here for the obligatory 'Friday brunch' and both the food and staff were exemplary. The staff were very courteous and attentive, yet not overbearing. The food was of a good standard, admittedly, I was greedy with the barbecued lobster, very moreish! Overall, an enjoyable experience...especially watching the lights if the building change colour from the inside!

Stayed with my family for two nights. Beautiful architecture, nice rooms. Service not upto the mark and staff not cooperative. No room service done whole day. When called in the evening on our return, still room was not properly made up.
Took a splash package advertised as 965AED but was charged 1136, and then on my complain was charged 1036AED. Kid was initially refused the waterpark ticket which was issued only on my insistence that its promised in the package but after waiting long.

Dear Dr. Safiuddin,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review on TripAdvisor.com. I apologize for the less than ideal experience you had during your last visit.

The Splash Package starts at 965 AED and is, as I am sure you can understand, dependent on the booked dates and availability, room type, etc. Your comment regarding the room has been noted and shared with the team accordingly to ensure a better understanding and implementation in the future and we will ensure that our Do Not Disturb system is more clearly explained in future.

Once again I thank you for your feedback and hope you will give us another chance in future to welcome you at Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi.

Sincerely yours,

It has been two years since I have been here. This June I've been pleasantly surprised (again) by the great experience the hotel delivers. Amazing setting, spacious rooms, balconies overlooking the race track, great food, wonderful staff. The rainfall shower does what all rainfall showers need to do, I simply love it.

To cut a long story short. This is my top pick from all the hotels I have been to in the last two years. On top of it.... it comes at a great value. Stop looking, this is it.

We have just spent the weekend at the Yaz Viceroy hotel at Yaz Island Abu Dhabi. What an experience we have been fortunate enough to visit Dubai on 4 previous occasions and I would say that stay at this location will not disappoint. The hotel itself is in the middle of the Grand Prix circuit with many facilities nearby. At the moment there is a mall being developed that will enhance its appeal. The staff and food were second to none and the accommodation is very modern. Gym not best equipped and 2 pools located on 9th floors so take some sun cream. Would fully recommend a short stay at this facility. Taxi from Abu Dhabi to Dubai cost about £40.

Room Tip: High floor overlooking marina.
