We have stayed twice at the Fairmont, both occasions for a rest and for 10 nights, stayed in a Gold room each time and thought the service was some of the best we have ever had in any hotel, the staff are a credit to the Fairmont and Abu Dhabi, the gold lounge really is a bit of self indulgence that was well worth it for the peace and quiet it offered, dedicated staff who could not do enough for us.
The hotel is a little out of the city but to be honest we were there for a rest and a bit of peace and quiet and the trip in by taxi was cheap quick and a change of an evening, went out for dinner a few times which was nice.
The pool area was busy on a Friday with it being the weekend and many local beach club members turning up, not a problem just get down earlier and bag yourself a bed!
Food choice was poor at the poolside for lunch to be honest, good but basic choice.
Rooms spacious modern and creek view were good and well looked after with twice a day service to keep the room tip top.
I have no complaints about this hotel and look forward to staying there again sooner rather than later.
