If you're looking for a hotel in a quieter part of Abu Dhabi, the Fairmont is it. It's not very convenient if you're looking for cheaper public transportation to get around, but taxis are easy to fetch in the area. If you're also looking for cheaper eats, you will definitely need to take a taxi.
Service, however, was top notch. The staff at the main entrance went out of their way to help us when we were in need. They also checked back in with us when we returned to our room to see if we were alright.
The room was beautiful. Since the front desk did made an error during the room assignment, they upgraded us to the ocean view. The view was fantastic! View aside, the room was large, spacious, and very comfortable. One minor complaint is that the shower is located in the same compartment as the bath tub, so if you are uncomfortable with showering with another, you will have to wait your turn!
Overall, the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr was a wonderful hotel. It was a relaxing experience away from the city of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Highly recommended.
