What can I say? This is an oasis in a very busy city, if you seek for tranquility on a business trip this is the perfect hotel to stay in, as taxis bring you quickly into the city and in the evening you can relax. Starwoods platinum members enjoy free cocktails and snacks during happy hour and the hotel pool is amazing! There are also lovely birds that wake you up :-) Strongly recommend this place!

Stayed here as part of a golfing break. It is right next to the Abu Dhabi national course,(the one with the falcon as the roof of the club house). It is also where the first European tour event is played in January. Course is amazing.
The rooms are really comfortable and all have a view over the golf course or practice area. The bed, called the Westin Heavenly bed, is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. The air con is very efficient but quiet.
The buffet restaurant is very comfortable and the food choice and quality is excellent. Waiters are ever present to serve coffee, tea and juices etc.
If you go you must try the Lobster night. For about £30 you can eat as much as you like. There are three types of lobsters cooked in about twenty ish different ways. Delicious.
Alcohol is only served in hotels and there is no problem with this.
The pool is really clean and towels are provided, even taken to your sun bed and laid out for you.
Would definitely go back. Be aware that the hotel is out of town but taxis are sooooo cheap that it is not a problem.

Room Tip: All rooms look out onto the golf course and I am sure that all rooms are of the same good quality.

Dear Heather1952,

Greetings from The Westin Abu Dhabi and thank you for having stayed with us during your golfing break.
It is a delight to read how much you enjoyed the National Golf Course – not only playing on it, but also overlooking it from the rooms and restaurants.
Wednesday nights are a treat for everyone who loves seafood: Lobster in all kinds of variations!

We do hope that you will soon find an opportunity to return, we are looking forward to making another vacation a truly enjoyable one!
Until then,

Stay well,

We stayed for 2 nights - Dec6,7 at the Westin. We were very pleased with the level of service, facilities, restaurants and general ambience. From the get go, the service was exceptional. Check- in was super efficient & quick. The staff on duty were professional, courteous and just plain good!

We booked the Premier deluxe room which comes with a private open terrace overlooking the golfing greens. The room is well appointed, spacious and very comfortable. The pools are good too. They have 3 - 1 lap pool, 1 leisure pool and 1 kids pool. Agadir is a beautiful restaurant with a phenomenal ambience. The food was not to our taste but thats just personal preference. The Fairways All day dining had a great spread for breakfast and lunch. With lots of healthy options in true Westin spirit. They make a killer Blueberry yoghurt smoothie! What was also interesting was the Asian breakfast section with dimsums, lakhsa amongst others.
The lounge cafe was comfortable with the cafe manager(I forget his name but he was in a light grey suit on both days) doing a great job. He made us feel welcome, made it comfortable for our toddler and made good recommendations. The drinks during happy hours was the cherry on the top!

It was my wife's bday and they arranged for a nice chocolate mousse cake for us(on the house). Loved the stay and the overall experience was great. The only con is that for people looking for something closer to Abu Dhabi city, this is not it. Its away from the town and more of a golf retreat than anything else.

Room Tip: The Premier deluxe rooms on the ground floor are worth paying extra. Try and get ones that are away...

Within the past 12 months I have stayed at the Westin for nearly a month.

For good reasons. First, perfect golf conditions at a professional run Abu Dhabi Golf Club. Second, nearly perfect care of guest conditions by the hotel ( NB: Tia at the Health Spa absolutely professional back and body message after many hours on the course or, Urban - my Driver for a day Tour around Abu Dhabi to see the sights - with his added value describing the City highlights or, the many other hotel employees who paid attention to my particular likes and dislikes). And, finally to the service people who prepared my food ....exactly to my liking!

If only this hotel could have a sports facility at the hotel and not away from the grounds at the golf facility !

Stayed here for one night. Exquisite service - beautiful, spacious room with great view of the golf course. Breakfast buffet unbeatable. This location is a good 20 minute drive from downtown, but 5 minutes from airport. Recommend if you want a quieter location or if you are a golfer. Only slightly annoying thing was inability to find temp control for room.

The bedroom and bathroom are what you would expect from this standard of hotel. My initial reason for booking this hotel is that it is not too far from the Exhibition centre. What let it down as the need to cut the grass and collect golf balls from the driving range at 5.30 in the morning? We are not talking quite machines. At the weekend they excelled themselves and started cutting the grass at 4.30 in the morning. I also had an issue with noise from the bar by people sitting outside until 1.20 in the morning. I first complained about it at midnight. It finally stopped when I had to shout down as management seemed to be ineffective. If you can sleep through any noise what so ever then by all means consider this hotel. From a business point of view you will have far less noise at one of the city centre hotels. The next major issue is the internet connection. To say it is slow is an understatement. At one point it would download nothing. So again from a business point of view don’t bother.

Room Tip: The only tip I can give is not to stay for business

Dear Daveymanc,

Thank you for sharing your comments about your recent stay at The Westin Abu Dhabi.
We are very sorry to read that your experience did not live up to your expectations.

In order to maintain the lush greens of the golf course, maintenance work needs to be done every day. I am very sorry that your well-deserved rest was disturbed by the noise. Please rest assured that your comment about the schedules has been addressed with Abu Dhabi Golf Club. We do apologize that you have been kept awake by other guests. Please let us know whenever you plan to return to The Westin Abu Dhabi and we will be happy to find a room for you which is further away from the restaurants’ terraces.

It would be a pleasure to welcome you again and to ensure a more relaxing experience.
Until then,
Stay well,

The Management
