My husband and I have travelled extensively around the world and this hotel was exceptional in many ways.
Location.......excellently positioned to take advantage of both sea and city views. Close to the Corniche and Marina Mall. The Bus tour is a must and can be picked up at the Etihad Towers only a 5 minute walk away.
Staff.....obviously trained to a very high standard. Nothing was too much trouble and their main concern was the comfort and satisfaction of their guests. This was evident throughout the hotel. Simply terrific!
Rooms......extremely comfortable with everything a guest would need. The bath was a little small but as everything else was so good, this was insignificant. There was also a shower cubicle which had a fantastic overhead shower.
Pool....the pool area is well laid out and the water is kept at 29 degrees. However it would benefit from more greenery.
Food.....We have stayed in dozens of hotels around the world and I would rate the quality of the food in the Selections restaurant up there with the best we have ever had. Our package included full board and after 5 days we still can't believe the quality and variety of dishes available. You will undoubtably find many things to delight your palate.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Abu Dhabi.
Thanks to everyone for making this an exceptional holiday.
