I am presently staying in this hotel with my wife and I have to say it is a fantastic experience. It is situated beside the Corniche, which is a beautiful walk right beside the sea. The hotel itself is relatively new, but the staff have settled in really well and are very friendly, respectfull and always on hand and willing to help. The rooms are really lovely and the bed very comfortable. You get room service three times per day or more if you want it, and each room has a fridge and coffee and tea making facilities. The hotel has a lovely gym with the sauna, steam room for both ladies and gents and they are of the highest standard. The outdoor pool is big and welcoming, the only disadvantage is that it only gets the sun directly on it for about two hours per day in late afternoon, because it is surrounded by high buildings. This can be an advantage when the real hot weather comes. In compensation the hotel runs a bus service to the public beeches and also pays for the entrance fee, this service also goes to one of the biggest shopping centres in Abu Dhabi, and its free. There are three bars and restuarants and the prices are reasonable.
To sum up, if you are looking for real genuine welcome and one of the best locations in Abu Dhabi to stay, then you have to try this place
