This is the best hotel that we have stayed in Abu Dhabi, mainly because it has a proper beach, we didn't have a sea view room, but when out on the Balcony we could see the beach, the room was lovely and spacious and the bathroom was just as you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Just across the road there is The Collection, shops and restaurants, where there is Spinney's supermarket, so stock up on soft drinks from there.
The staff are all very friendly, one or two are a bit "slow" but think about the heat they are working in!
The food at the Olea restaurant was lovely, we were on half board, so had breakfast and dinner there every day, if you can't find something there you like you must be very hard to please, my only negative would be that some dishes didn't get replenished, so if you see something you especially want, get it when you see it.
The pool and beach areas are lovely with lots of sun beds and parasols, no trouble in getting a sun bed, so why do people still reserve them, and then not use them for hours, especially by the adult pool, which was lovely and peaceful, but one couple did have their baby with them that kept crying, someone did complain to the pool guy but nothing was done about it, the idea of an adult pool is to get away from children and crying babies!
I would recommend the St Regis, but it is very secluded, so not much happening in the evenings, even when its ladies night at Turquoiz it was very quiet, so if you want night life this might not be the place for you, although Taxis are very cheap to get into town.
