We stayed at the Shangri La but a friend who works in Abu Dhabi took us to the Westin on Friday lunch. Fantastic. She paid so not too sure about the prices but three levels. All you can eat plus fruit juices/non alcoholic drinks is the cheapest followed by the food and alcohol with sparkling wine and then the Champagne package. Two of us on the sparkling wine the other on Champagne.
We arrived around 1pm and the place was buzzing. It had been open since noon. The food was amazing and as much drink as you could handle. There were entertainers for kids and there was a DJ and it really was an excellent way to spend an afternoon. I don't know what the rest of the hotel was like but this seems to be where a lot of the ex pats go on a Friday. Highly recommend the brunch. The hotel is a very modern very pleasant hotel but we did not stay but would have no problem if I found myself there.

Dear rammyscott,
Thank you for your wonderful comment about our Bubbalicious Brunch and even better that you did not have to think about the price, as you were invited – but don’t worry, the three package options are suitable for every budget.
It is not only a culinary experience, but an event for the entire family: a DJ, magician and falconer as well as some more attractions guarantee a unique Brunch option.
It would be a pleasure to show you all other aspects and facilities of the hotel at another time – we are looking forward to welcoming you again soon!

Stay well,
The Management

This hotel has the WOW factor. Plush, very upmarket and luxurious. Sits in its own grounds overlooking a golf course. Rooms are very large and well appointed. Lots of tech to aid the business traveller. Communal areas are very good. The gym and leisure facilities are about a quarter mile walk away in a sepaarte building but they run a golf buggy shuttle service to and from this. The sports bar is a great watering hole showing a full range of sports including premiership football. Arrived at about 930 pm on a Friday night after a long flight from blitty. Booked into my room, headed for the bar for food - beer burger and Man Utd on TV what could be better.
On the downside every morning the groundman went out at between 530 and 6 to prepare the greens. Now these guys are using some pretty major plant so you can imagine the noise ! So a hotel in its own grounds on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi ought to be a peaceful haven except for those groundmen prepping the ground at such an ungodly hour.

Room Tip: High floor - all rooms overlook the golf course

Dear briankirk,
Thank you for your sincerely positive review.
I can see that you had a great time, unwinding after a long flight – this is how it should feel here at The Westin Abu Dhabi!
In order to maintain the lush greens of the golf course, maintenance work needs to be done every day. I am ery sorry that your well-deserved rest was disturbed by the noise. Please let us know your room location preferences for your next stay so that we can maximize your comfort and wellbeing!

We just spent the long weekend holiday at this fabulous hotel. This is our second getaway here and won't be our last. Of particular note was the Argentinian Barbeque held next to the pool, where the delectable treats ranged from perfectly done giant prawns to of delights in a mini-smorg of desserts delivered in a 'bento-box' to our table. We used a facebook offer on the hotel's FB page to get a free bottle of red wine. My husband enjoyed nine holes of evening golf at the hotel's discounted rate of 175 AED.
Daytime was restful, lazing by the adult pool with a perfectly refreshing temperature for languishing, and not over-crowded even though a busy weekend. All in all, a great stay at our favourite resort, with an outstanding concierge, attentive restaurant service, and beautiful rooms with balconies offering sweeping views of verdant greens and fairways and sparkling blue lakes. You'd be glad you chose it, whether for a weekend or a destination golf holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms on the right side of the hotel when facing the golf course seem to have better views.

Although this Eid weekend was most likely the busiest time of the year for the hotel, for the most part the staff coped very well, with one exception....more later. The hotel is set overlooking the golf course with fantastic views from every room, nothing nicer than a cup of tea on the balcony overlooking the greens. Our room was large, stylish and very comfortable. The bed and linens were wonderful. Our only problem was trying to figure out the lighting system, far too sophisticated for me! The problem we had was the lack of organisation at breakfast, it was crazy with guests trying to find tables and the manager did not seem to have a system for seating guests. We went outside which was actually very lovely, why he wasn't using that space I will never know. Day 2 we got a buggy to the club house, lovely time there. The pool area was extremely well organised, with adults being offered the lap pool area leaving the large family pool to those who wanted it. All in all we would go back, great get away.

Room Tip: If the breakfast area is busy and breakfast is not included in your rate go to the golf club house...

First of all: Thank you for taking the time to tell about your experience at The Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort & Spa! Yes, holidays are the season that attract many guests to the resort – however, we are sorry that your expectations for a tranquil breakfast were not met that day.
The technology in the rooms is state of the art and very convenient once you have taken some time to try it out or even better, asking one of our committed associates to show you.
Please visit us again soon, either for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even another weekend break and we promise to look after you just as you deserve it!

We have just returned from a wonderful four night stay at The Westin. This was our first stay and will certainly not be our last. Our room was really nice with a small terrace overlooking the golf course. The staff were helpful and friendly throughout the hotel. The food in all of the restaurants was very good and we only found the service slow at the pool bar but given that it was a holiday weekend the staff were very busy it was understandable. The hotel grounds are beautiful and the swimming pool area has plenty of sun loungers. We also enjoyed having the golf course next door ( within walking distance).

If I could give this experience 6 star I would.

Visited by son in AbuDhabi with my wife and he took us to the Wesin Gulf Club Friday Brunch.

When for the alcohol option, there was a non alcohol option and champaign opion.

The service and food was excellent, every time the waiter saw me with an empty bottle another was produced.

Seafood and osysters were the best I have eaten anywhere. The rip eye beef cooked to perfection

Is it worth the cover charge around £60 per head - yes it is worth every penny.

We had a fantastic weekend away over Eid. The rooms were perfectly sized for a family of 4 and wow, the beds were so comfy!

The coffee shop was slightly overpriced but the Moroccan restaurant was brilliant.

Staff at the pool were great with the kids, giving them toys to play with etc
