Enjoyed a lovely 6 day break at the Park Hyatt, rooms were lovely, well equipped and well maintained. The Half Board breakfast was a great spread with loads of fresh fruit along with many other options, but the Evening Buffet was very similar everyday and the vegetarian options were almost none existant, the chefs however did there best to accommodate my girlfriend. The Beach restaurant was very nice for both lunch and evening meals but the menu was the same for both which was a shame. The staff throughout the hotel were very friendly and accommodating, but at times it appeared they were slightly understaffed around breakfast time. The Spa is beautiful and the treatments were very good and good value for money. Overall its a typical Middle Eastern hotel, great for a 5/6day break to get sun and have a nice relaxing holiday. but if you want something more romantic this is not the place. the only negative i have is my pre-authorised credit card amount was not going to cover the amount we spent and i was bugged to go back to reception and authorise more, something I've never had at a hotel before and never at a Hyatt.

Real 5stars hotel. One of the best hotels I ever stayed. Professional staff, excellent cousin, nice location, warm swimming pools (as for kids). Awesome spa, nice sauna with huge jacuzzi. Seems like they thought about everything, except hairbrushes, soap, slippers, etc. Good thing - they don't have towel cards system.(in pool and beach areas). You can just use towels and do not look for cards everywhere.

The hotel itself is new and nice, with variety of pools and nice beach. My main problem was the location, as we were travelling with small children and hotel is a half an hour drive from the closest store of any kind. Saadiyat Island is a new creation, and with the exception of Park Hyatt and St Regis has nothing on it, so fpr anything and everything you would have to drive to Abu Dhabi...

Me and my husband stayed only 1 night in Park Hyatt in Sep 2012, this hotel was recommended to us by our friends. The hotel is very new and everyone is very organized. Check in procedures were smooth and fast, we had a phone call from the manager of the hotel who welcomed us and wished us a pleasant stay. Our room had an amazing view, it was spacious and wonderfully decorated. We spent almost the whole day by the pool and loved each and every moment of it. We will highly recommend this hotel to all our fiends and family. Well done PH team and thank you for making our day so unforgettable.

Room Tip: Book the hotel and you wont regret :)

We've just spent a week at Abu Dhabi Park Hyatt before Christmas with our 6 year old son.

It' s a great resort. We usually go to DubaÏ during Christmas (One and Only The Palm, Al Qasr and Dar Al Masiyaf), but I have to say that Abu Dhabi and Park Hyatt are a great alternative if you want to avoid bling bling Dubaï and the crasy prices there. If you want to have a relaxing time in an almost new property and digest the final bill without a heart attack, that's a great place! I would say it's better for a familly vacation than for a business stay as it is located outside the main business district.

The hotel is located on Saadiyat Island and it' s quite easy to reach down town Abu Dhabi, The Corniche and Yas Islands (Ferrari World and Yas Marina Circuit). Approx. 25 minutes drive by cab for 45-50 Drh.

The outside design of the Park Hyatt is not a major piece of architecture and it's quite disapointing when you arrive, as other reviews have pointed out, but just wait until you walk inside :

Superb interior design, modern and sophisticated. Very far from the more exhuberant style you will find in other hotels in the region. The rooms are also elegant and chic. The beach view suite is comfy and large (very nice when you travel with kids). It feels like a very elegant apparment. The staff is excellent, extremelly polite. Room, restaurants, beach house, etc were perfectly maintained. The Kid's club is also great : our 6 year old son usually refuses to join Hotels' Kid's clubs, but this time he spent his full day there and had a lot of fun. Kid's club nanies are very gentle, smile a lot and took great care of our son who enjoyed all the activities.

The best part is the beach which is a real white sandy beach (not like the artificial one on the Palm in DubaÏ). 9km long with protected dunes between the swiming pool area and the beach area , it looks like Miami Beach, but the big difference is that it is very well preserved so far and no skyscrapers!

Breakfast buffet at Le Café is excellent, as is the diner buffet. The trendy Park Grill restaurant is more expensive and the food is OK, but not great. As a general matter, we felt that room rates, food and beverages prices where quite competitive for a 5 star resort, including in-room dining.

The gym/SPA area is nice with a private pool with no kids ! so you can relax. I'm not a golf player, but there is a brand new Golf course next door.

As for fun experience in Abu Dhabi, I recommend Yas Marina F1 driving academy. For 300 pounds you will drive an Aston Martin DB4 GT, or a F3000 and other formulas. I tried the Aston package and it was really a great experience. 1 hour session : instructions 20 minutes, 10 minutes to get dressed, and then more than 20 minutes driving with your instructor on your right. The instructors are great, only 5 cars per session, fully equipped installation incl. Doctors, etc ( you never know if you over estimates your driving skills !). You can have lunch at Yas Marina Viceroy Hotel which looks like a Star Wars spaceship just crashed on the circuit (inside : nothing you've seen before!). Ferrari World is also nice with the kids. It was empty when we visited, but when it's fully packed I guess it becomes very noisy as everything is located under a gigantic tubular structure. Try the costers you will not forget it ! Nice alternative to Disney parks for Dads!

You can also visit the Grand Mosque which is very spectacular.

Conclusion : Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi was a nice experience for us. NB : Louvres and Gugenheim Abu Dhabi museums are opening 2013 on Saadiyat Island close to the hotel, so it will be even more interesting. We will return.

Room Tip: Beach view suite at the right end of the property on the 3rd floor was really nice and quite

the fact that this hotel is on an island is good enough to understand that the views are phenomenal. and as all park hyatts, the spa is on another level. the food is very very good, especially the spanish tapas place. this hotel is a superb retreat away from the noise of the city and is perfect for a weekend getaway for pure relaxation.

Spent two nights here in October 2012. Fabulous view of the water. Stunning hotel facilities. On Saadiyat Island, next to Ritz Hotel. Location is gorgeous, although far from Abu Dhabi main attractions. Nice place to spend a honeymoon or quiet vacation. Food was fabulous. Service was okay. Rooms were incredible.

Room Tip: get a sea view room. It'll cost a little more, but totally worth it. **Also, make sure to call...
