Stayed 4 nights in a Royal Club room. Hotel is good, rooms spacious and comfortable, clean and well kept. The Club Lounge is rather strange as it is co-located with the lobby bar/café and you really do not know which one you are using. I was never provided with details of opening hours, whats included etc. However, it turned out well and I was not charged with anything consumed there. I am an elite member of several other hotel chains and I must say that the Club lounge offerings are very limited. For instance no cognac or brandy offered!
The real "downturn" of this stay was that I was not able to enjoy the outdoor pool which was closed for construction. Anyhow, I did enjoy my stay until I got the bill where they overcharged me with 1 night. Well, I always keep a copy of the reservation details and finally the bill was corrected!
Woudl I stay again? Probably not as there are several other hotels which offer better service in Abu Dhabi: Shangri-La, Traders, Intercontinetal and Fairmont to mention a few. If I am going to return they must step up their Club services and inform of closed pools etc prior to reservation.
