We visited the Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche around the end of April.
We arrived later in the evening and were welcomed with delicious lime/mint juice and cold towels to freshen up during check-in.
Although the Club Millesime was not yet opened we were impressed by the hotel. Breakfast was consquently taken at the Corniche in the form of a buffet. Service needed just a slight tweeking but the quality of food was that one would expect from Sofitel French chefs. We had the buffet dinner one night and one of the chefs gave us the best shwarma we have ever eaten ... one will never eat street shwarma again.
The gym and pool were spotless and the best part : almost no other guests.
The room : what to say ? Flawless with an excellent view of the Corniche.
We will look forward to returning when all services are available and the staff have that much more experience to provide that impeccable French touch one expects from Sofitel.
