The Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort & Spa
Ranked #21 of 128 Hotels in Abu Dhabi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 16, 2013

It is very nice hotel for short stay in Abu Dhabi (and for golfers even for long stay). It has nice architecture, impressive entrance, nice spacious rooms, very nice beds and top quality restaurants. Breakfast and dinner choice and quality was incredible. The only issue is bit worse noise insulation and especially noise coming from very early morning (4:30 am) golf green maintenance. It is very reasonably close to the airport and not fat from city center. Taxis are very cheap and very frequent, so there is no issue with transport. Staff is friendly and competent.

Room Tip: I had room 115, which was fantastic big room with ground terrace and very good beds. The only issue...

Dear Marin881,

Greetings from The Westin Abu Dhabi and thank you for sharing your review.
We do apologize for the inconvenience caused by the maintenance work from the golf course. In order to ensure the best conditions for early golfers, these works start very soon in the morning. Especially at this time of the year, when it is still pleasant to have the balcony door open, the sound of the machines can become audible in the rooms. Maybe a room on a higher floor is an option for you next time?
We hope that you will grant yourself the chance to spend a little longer here soon to enjoy some definitely well deserved relaxation!
We are looking forward to welcoming you!

Until then,
Stay well,
The Management

I was hugely impressed by the service we received before we even checked in. I booked two rooms on the evening before our arrival and wanted to check that we could get rooms next door or as close as possible as one was for our young son. The Duty Manager (ROSHAN N.
RAJAPAKSHE) was wonderful and confirmed by email that inter-connecting rooms had been allocated to us. The rooms are really lovely with extremely comfortable beds and Nespresso coffee machines (although I couldn't for the life of me get it to produce a cup of coffee - this could just be due to my limited technical abilities though!) Nice views over the golf course from the balconies too.
We have previously enjoyed the Friday brunch here and can highly recommend it, especially the desserts! This time we had drinks in The Retreat and Lemon and Lime, both of which are lovely with good service, especially Lemon and Lime where the bar manager(?) was impressively knowledgable about the various Starwood Hotel brands and generally lovely to talk to!
The pool area is large and good for children of all ages with plenty of sun loungers around (some actually in the pool!) and there is a pool bar, Shades where we had lunch - not bad, but definitely not up to the high standards we'd come to expect, although the chips were delicious! All in all I am looking forward to our next stay and would definitely recommend this hotel.

We have had a wonderful 7 days at this hotel with 4 rounds of golf, a fantastic ground floor room with a patio overlooking the practice ground, delicious food, and a very welcoming atmosphere.
The hotel and golf course staff were all brilliant, but we have to mention a couple by name because they were so friendly and helpful.
Many thanks to Simon (concierge) for giving excellent assistance sorting out our golf and to Avik (restaurant) for taking care of us at breakfast - what a lovely send off this morning with a personalised cake, wishing us a safe flight home!
Will we come back? Without a doubt, we will!

Valet team were pleasant, quick and efficient. Check in formalities were done in 5 mins !!! Staff were so attentive and always smiled. The rooms are huge and so spacious for a standard room , I guess about 60sqm. The view to golf drive range was perfect and so convenient. The gardens were well maintained and looked great. The buffet restaurant was awesome, good quality of food, service was superb, chefs were interactive and would talk to you whilst preparing your eggs. A great serene place to stay

We Choose this hotel as our post cruise stop over and arrived about
10.30am along with our Children and Grandchildren Ten of us altogether
and were pleased to be told 2 of the rooms were ready and within 15 minutes we were shown the first of which looked over the Golf course,
a beautiful modern stylish room with a huge bed, coffee machine etc etc.
nice balcony with classic furniture. The bedrooms had lots of tech and touch controls.
lovely bathrooms with seperate shower room and toilet. large basin area
and a super magnified mirror plus toiletries and Huge bathsheets and robes these rooms are beautiful and we would all have loved to stay longer, We had a large round table for ten which which the staff organised so that we could all dine together for Dinner where the majority chose the Buffett Menu which had an amazing choice and the younger members of the family enjoyed choosing there meal in any sequence they fancied .. The service was friendly and efficient which I find is the Norm for the Hotels in the UAE and when we realised that we had to leave for our flight before the Breakfast Restaurant opened it wasnt a problem and we ate early. The pool area was huge and a lifegaurd on duty who kept the children amused by throwing pool toys in for them to dive for there was also a large lap pool which 1 fit member of our family took advantage of this was also child free so it was serious swimming..
we had lunch at the pool bar which had a good menu with somthing for everyone.. the Club sandwich was very tasty. we enjoyed our stay here
and would be more than happy to stay there again.

Best coice really when going to Abu Dhabi. We stayed there the week before Christmas, Dec. 2012 and loved it. The hotel is a little far away from the city center but offers a free shuttle. The fact that it is far away from the center and the beach turned out great though as it is very quiet and peaceful. The pool area is wonderful with 2 big and 1 kids pool. The golf course is impressive. The food is excellent. The rooms and the service true 5*.
