This hotel is at the eastern end of the Corniche opposite the Sheraton, close to the central tourist district and Abu Dhabi mall. We had a double room on the 21st floor with seaview. Furnishings stylish and comfortable, bathroom gorgeous with sliding door to bedroom. Staff very friendly. Concierge offers all services-we booked desert tour, golf and dinners at restaurants. Lobby restaurant with breakfast and lunch buffets is top class, but expensive if not part of package. Chill n fizz bar has good music, but a little smokey. Only negative is the pool, which although great looking has no direct sunshine. In summer this might be good, but in winter makes pool area unattractive. Hotel does offer hourly shuttle to public beach, but a taxi will only cost a couple of euros. For an 8 night package incl breakfast we paid 790 euros-great value found on olotels. Taxi to auh airport 40 kms away costs 80 dhirams.
