Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi - Yas Island
Ranked #45 of 128 Hotels in Abu Dhabi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 3, 2012

The Crowne Plaza at Yas is a comfortable hotel just a few minutes drive from the airport. Staff are quite helpful and attentive and the accommodations were more than adequate for a three night stay. The room has plenty of closet space and the bed was about as good as one can expect from a hotel. Although there are several attractions nearby, my meeting schedule kept me from enjoying the surroundings and the outdoor pool.

The only down side to the hotel is the lack of dining choices. There is one central dining room that is buffet only, but you can get snack foods and sandwiches in the lobby bar. I decided on room service two nights and it at least offered better choices than the buffet. Breakfast was included in the room rate and the variety of offerings was pretty good. On at least one morning, though, the scrambled eggs looked watery and under cooked, so I passed on those.

All in all, it is a solid choice for a short to medium stay in Abu Dhabi.

Location: perfect for those, who are interested in the circuit and ferrari world. All other attractions, as well as supermarkets and malls are quite far away from Yas.

Rooms: we lived in superior double room. Small, but cozy. With a view directly on Yas Marina Circuit. We loved it!

Food: try their soups, people!

Pool: Very stylish and beautiful place for evening lounge. We ordered cocktails at Views bar and spent great time seating by the pool, watching sunset.

Service: very nice and friendly people.

This hotel has everything you need for either an overnight or longer stay. We booked a club room package including dinner B&B for 7 nights & couldn't be happier. The hotel upgraded us upon arrival to a suite which had 2 very different views & a large balcony. We love F1 so to have the bedroom overlooking the track was brillant. All staff very friendly never had a problem with housekeeping they have a one touch button on the phone & everything is sorted!
Tips
Book direct with hotel website
Arrange taxi pick up through hotel others have received upgrades in this way.
Ask for a club package ( free drinks 6-8) comp soft drinks as well.
You can request a quiet room if in transit.
Taxis very reasonable into city didn't find the distance any problem.
Hotel pool was busy on Fri- Sun lots of families.
Enjoyed our stay & would recommend to anyone wishing to have a stylish & relaxing break.

Me, my partner and her mother came here on Tuesday 27th March to stop for 4 nights, we arrived on Tuesday morning and our room was ready as soon as we arrived this is where the first problem started. At the reception we gave documents to say we had booked a triple room and they said no a double an tried to charge us for a third bed, once we pointed out we had paid for a triple they kindly said ok we will amend our system. We got to our room and it was a bog standard double room not a triple, and they brought us a camp bed for the third person. They only provided us with two of everything aswell towels, bathrobes, water etc...
We then complained and they have slowly gave us extra water this being after not having our room cleaned until the third day! When we complained that we had not had it cleaned they sent someone at midnight to do it to which we was in bed so we just asked for clean towels.
The pool area is quite big but if your not up and out early you will struggle to get a sunbed. It is very clean around the pool and the hotel itself, the pool staff are very friendly and always happy to help.
The restaurants in the hotel are on the quite expensive side and you can find better value at other hotels in the area.
Overall it's a nice hotel but is nice what you want when your stopping in a very rich country and surely should have better room standards???

Spent one weekend night here in the deluxe suite overlooking the pool and the Yas LInks Golf Course. The suite was spacious, well equipped with the amenities and toiletries etc, CLEAN, free wi fi, and Flatscreen TVs in the living room and bedroom. A surround sound system in the living room would've been nice.

The hotel was a pleasure to be in with freindly staff, nice modern decor, and a nice bar/grill called Stills to have some drinks in the evening (it has the longest bar in the Middle East), and gets pretty packed. The other restaurant, Jing Asia, had a nice feel, and the food was good during breakfast.The pool is a great place to relax, but the poolside menu is mediocre, and the quality not so great.

Overall,I would recommend this hotel for residents of the big city looking for a quiet escape. For tourists coming to Abu Dhabi, I would suggests something closer to the city as this one is located 30 minutes out, and it's one boring drive to the city.

Room Tip: This hotel offers great packages for concerts that happen on Yas Island.

The Crowne Plaza was an excellent hotel where my wife and toddler stayed on a stopover while flying with Etihad. The staff were fantastic and ensured we all had a relaxing time. The rooms were an excellent standard (although we would have been disappointed to be allocated one without a balcony). Club facilities and catering were good - again great staff made the difference. We ate breakfast in the main restaurant each day and were not disappointed. The Lebanese was also good although expensive. The main drawback is the distance from town (30 mins in a taxi) and unless you are going to Ferrari world there is nothing on Yas Island. Dubai Creek is 90 minutes and 250 Dirhams in a taxi - the 45 quoted by the hotel and concierge is to the industrial southern outskirts. In summary a great place for a stopover but not a good base to see the emirates.

One of this disastrous hotel in the UAE opened to quickly : No tooth brush in the bathroom, no bath robes, had to wait hours with the room service to get ones... No hot water either for my shower... What a shame for a brand like Crown Plaza !
Disastrous stay even as a gift by Ethiad because a fly cancelation.
