I only came to this Sofitel for dinner on a special 2 for 1 offer. The dinner buffet was below standard compared to other hotels in the city. The taste and food selection was surprisingly not as expected for such a strong brand. The deserts were especially unappealing. Importantly, the host was unfriendly. I don't recommend people living in Abu Dhabi to visit this Sofitel for dinner. In my opinion, it is not a good value. You might want to try the Shangrila or Beach Rotana instead. I won't be returning.

Just got back from Abu Dhabi where we stayed in this great hotel. The hotel was simple, clean, rooms aren't that big but the best part of this hotel was their customer service. From the valet, reception, concierge, the housekeeping, and the staff at the breakfast buffet, everyone was just friendly, helpful and polite. This reflects a lot on how this hotel is managed. Well done!

There was a great variety of food in the breakfast buffet although they have about four or five kinds cheeses served only. They didn't have my favorite mozzarella balls! Hey but can't fault them with this - the lady staff at the buffet even apologized for for not having it but it was not really a big deal at all! Anyway, yeah so they gave very good service at the buffet, even the chefs interact very nicely with the guests and gave very personalized service. And yeah the french toast was sooo good!

The staff were very prompt in responding to us whenever we needed any information or extras in our room. We did not really get around the hotel, just the pool area and the lobby. I hope the pool was bigger but it was good anyway, water was cool.

Overall it was a great experience with Sofitel.

Room Tip: Ask them to book you a room with the corniche view.

We spent 3 nights at this hotel which offered us real 5 star service. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Paul the manager was extremely nice and helpful. Room was perfect, modern, well designed, comfortable and nice sea view on the corniche. Nice Gym, my wife enjoyed the spa and we had great food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We will definitely book again at Sofitel Abu Dhabi.

Nice Sofitel - lovely rooms and reasonable service (staff are pleasant but didn't go "the extra mile"). A great deal is restricted in this hotel during Ramadan - only one pool open, executive lounge only open for a few hours in the evening, jacuzzi closed, bar closed etc. Exec lounge is very stylish.

Together with my colleagues at Dhahra Sport Club (Libya), It was my first time to visit UAE. We had spent a very nice time at Sofitel AD Corniche. Thanks to all Sofitel staff, April, Maria, Tawfik, Mohammed & Izas who were very kind with us. I decided to visit the city next time with my family.
Except the internet every think was perfect specially the hospitality.

Room Tip: All rooms are OK but be careful of smoking rooms.
