Dear Moulou,

Thank you for coming back to us with your comments.
Yes we are selling a brand name, but as you stated it yourself, the service is at the level.
Regarding the price, if you look closely, we are not exaggerated. Because, we are at the level of the other properties and even under sometimes. And because we do not charge 16% taxes on top of the prices indicated on the tariff list, that makes the difference.

We hope to see you soon again.

Monte-Carlo Yours,

Patrick Nayrolles

“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Went there today, view is paradisiac, infrastructures incredibles, prices are in line with the service quality except the private bungalows around the pool a bit too expensive for me (600 AED). I was also expecting better food for this overall level of perfection. Will surely come back next time I'm in AD

Dear Fabrice,

I am very happy that you liked the club. Thank you for coming back to us with your comments.
We are looking into price structure of the pool cabanas.
Regarding the food, were you expecting a better quality or a larger offer?

Hope to see you soon again.

“SUPER EXPENSIVE!! NOT WORTH IT!!”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Entrance is crazy expensive...we talking about 50 USD to get a sunbed??? YOU must be outminded....It's no doubt a beautiful place, with nice pool and truly finely designed poolside area...again...I wouldn't go there again!! Service is nothing special, same guys serving you anywhere else in the region. If they treat you well then run..it's really nice...or else...any other pool will be much more trusthworthy

Dear IgorGourmet,

Thank you for your comments.
I guess you come from a country where beaches are open to everyone and private facilities do not exist. You also have the choice in Abu Dhabi for other beach clubs with pool accessible at a lesser cost.
On the island of Saadiyat, you also have a public beach that has just opened next to the Park Hyatt.
I understand your position, but I must say that in a large majority on TripAdvisor, the comments show that the club is worthwhile for the price, and that the service is at the level.

We hope to see you soon again.

Monte-Carlo Yours,

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

My sister and I spent a day at the MCBC recently. The only reason we're not giving it an excellent rating was the slight niggle over the entrance price ( weekday and nearly empty most of the day!). If we had been a "couple" we would have been given a discounted entry - I pointed out that we were 2 people, but this didn't mean the same thing apparently! Not to worry, we still had a fabulous day, although we thought the extra price for the pool cabanas was also inflated, given they were not used all day!! A bit of yield management is required possibly for the quieter days! Nevertheless, what makes the MCBC so good is without doubt the natural setting on Saddiyat ( a refreshing change from DXB), the extremely high quality buildings/fixtures, the stunning infinity pool, and the fantastic staff. They couldn't do enough for us and were so helpful and friendly. We arrived very early, and there is no breakfast menu as such ( perhaps in the future?), but the staff made recommendations and all was resolved. The lunch menu could do with some extra choices but the beverage list is good, and was much enjoyed, as were evening cocktails in the beautiful beachside bar, complete with low key music and burners. What a fabulous and tasteful venue - it can only go from strength to strength as it becomes more popular. Saadiyat is a hidden gem!

Dear Elodie,

Thank you for your nice comments.
I take your point on the couple rate but this is our policy.
On the other hand, I take your advice, on the yield management of the cabanas in slow periods.
Your comments on the staff are very rewarding and they deserve it.
As you said, when the footfall will be more important, it is growing everyday, we will also do breakfast.
But then Saadiyat will not be your hidden gem anymore.

Monte-Carlo regards,

“The only place to truly chillax in Abu Dhabi!”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Even if you cant afford the monstrous fees to use the pool and beach for the day, you must come in for a drink before sunset! The tunes, dunes, decor and menu make this the coolest place to be, either to impress a friend, date, family or business contact. Order the pink bubbly cocktail for a true feel of glamour, as you watch the sun go down and think that life cannot really get much better than this!

Dear MiliPop,

Thank you for your kind words on the club.
It’s true that it is a beautiful natural surroundings to spend the day or part of the day.
If you find our new rates “monstrous”, which adjective would you use for our initial rates?
Hope to see you around the club at your next visit.
