A relaxed environment, great golf course..nice rooms. Food at the club house and the hotel - delicious.
Shower water pressure was a disappointment. I drove from Dubai so the location was great straight road one U-turn and there u are.
Service was good.

I've recently stayed at Westin for the F1 weekend and loved the hotel.

The rooms were spacious and with nice views of the golf course.

The westin beds are very confortable and service was impressive for UAE standards.

Any request made was quickly obliged by the very kind staff.

I also enjoyed the overall healthy life style proposition of the hotel with the food menus, gym ,etc.

Will definitely go back when I have a chance.

The only downside of the hotel is the access roads that are currently under construction so it is a bit hard to find first time you are trying to reach the hotel.

I stayed at this property for a week in October of 2013 while on a business trip. I would say the majority of the guests were leisure guests on vacation but that doesn't mean this hotel does not carter to business clientele. It has conference rooms, wifi and ethernet connections to the internet.

The rooms were very large, comfortable and clean. An added bonus is that every room overlooks the golf course.

There are several options available for dining. In the morning, there is a large selection of local and western breakfast options in their buffet room. In the evenings, this room serves a variety of cuisine depending on the day of the week. There are also two bars in the hotel that also serve food as well as the golf club next door which guests can use.

Room Tip: Every room faces the golf course, can't really go wrong.

The Westin is truly a peaceful place to spend a vacation. The hotel is in perfect condition and in a very quiet place. It is literally on the Golf course but not where the commerce is taking place. The pool area is one of the best we have ever seen. Some of the sunbeds was actually “in the water” so you could lay in the bed and have your hands in the water….absolutely fantastic! We are a family of four (two children 7 and 9) and the kids really loved the pool. The breakfast was amazing with classic Westin style including pretty much everything. The location is about 20-25 minutes (taxi is very cheap) from Marina Mall, the best shopping center in Abu Dhabi. The clubhouse of the golf course (200m away from the hotel) is a magnificent house in the shape of an eagle….unbelievable!
We can easily recommend this hotel to anybody who wants to have a high class hotel in a very quiet environment.

Room Tip: Ground floor executive rooms have a very nice view with a "high ceiling".

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort in late October, staying in a Deluxe Room and paying 900 AED (180 Euros / $245) in total, using a buy-one-night, get-one-night-free Entertainer Travel Voucher.

There are numerous positives about the resort. The rooms are large (45 sq. m. / 490 sq. ft), as are the bathrooms. The Westin “Heavenly Bed” is amazingly comfortable. The modern décor of the room, lobby, lounges, and restaurants is tasteful and attractive. The staff – from the valets to the porters to the check-in staff to the concierge to the waiters and waitresses were all courteous and professional. Breakfast at the Fairways restaurant and lunch at The Retreat were both of good quality. The fitness center is full of new, modern equipment. Finally, the hotel is located directly adjacent to the Abu Dhabi Golf Club (home to a European Tour event each January).

There are a few negatives for the hotel. In spite of the fact that the hotel is designated as entirely non-smoking, individuals were still permitted to smoke in the café just off the main lobby as well as in The Retreat restaurant. Communication between the Westin concierge and the golf course was not perfect, necessitating multiple phone calls from the golf course to convince them that I had indeed already paid for my golf with the Westin.

If you stay at the hotel, be aware that it is primarily a golf resort (most rooms look out on the course and practice area), and that it is about a 20-minute drive from most of the attractions in Abu Dhabi. If you’re looking for golf, for a quiet retreat outside the city, or for a classy hotel near the airport, this is a wonderful place to stay. If you want to be near the action, stay in the city or near the attractions on Yas Island. All in all, we loved our time at the Westin and would recommend it.

Dear drjandthemissus,

Greetings and thank you from The Westin Abu Dhabi! Your detailed review is highly appreciated.
The location, facilities and attitude of our associates are all mentioned in a very favorable light, which makes us very proud.

We are grateful for your comment regarding the non-smoking sections in the hotel: There might be a misunderstanding: The hotel is not entirely smoke-free, there are smoking rooms as well as The Retreat and The Lounge, where smoking is allowed.
The cooperation with Abu Dhabi Golf Club is a vital one and we are working on an improved communication in order to create a smooth golfing experience for our guests. Please apologize if we were not able to provide this service in your case.

Thank you for planning to recommend The Westin Abu Dhabi to your friends and colleagues, both for a stay as well as for a culinary experience.
We are looking forward to welcoming you back again soon!

Until then,
Stay well,
The Management

Getting there is a challenge due to construction. Valet is not trained to 3 star level and quite bad at proper etiquette. Front dest staff is warm and accommodating. As SPG Platinum I was upgraded to larger rooms on floor 1 with patio. As female traveling alone this is NOT a good option. Patio is open to walkway and right off busy golf course. Other floors are same configurations and size with balconies. Take those. My upgrade felt like downgrade as we walked to "basement" level and as we approached my room #105 The musty smells confirmed it. The room itself was well appointed and the sheets were divine. Nespresso machine was nice, but only two pods daily so you need to ration! The Arabian restaurant is fantastic, the lamb shoulder perfect and service was great. Lots of outdoor seating for the Pub and restaurants. Good food at any of their restaurants. Gym is offsite at Golf Club. Westin gets you there in 5 mins but you may have to wait 10 mins to return so plan your time. Decent equipment.

Room Tip: Balconies vs Patios. Ask for rooms away from restaurants.

My son and I stayed at the hotel last week for a golf break,great location next to the golf course but service could have been sharper.Two days running the breakfast was spoilt by the chef not being capable of cooking poached eggs and an omelette and then we received a letter in the room telling us they had cancelled our tee times because they got our check out date wrong,rather strange but they re booked us the next day.
The golf course is right next door but was in average condition and is heavily played so expect a slow round. Yas links is in a different league and i would thoroughly recommend a round there.The bedrooms are excellent and the beds are so comfy you'll want to take them home.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the golf course rather than the driving range have better views
