Stayed 2 nights on a work trip. The staff at reception are great, but the staff in the restaurants weren't very helpful or attentive. Took a while to order and the food service was slow.
Having said that there's a good choice of food options, with a strip of restaurants / bars out in the courtyard area. All well frequented by people not staying at the hotel so always busy and had a good atmosphere.
The pool and beach were great - lots of loungers, very clean, little cafe for lunch snacks.
My room was ok, but not great. Looked over a large terrace which as a single traveller wasn't the best, but the windows locked. Comfy bed, small desk, older style bathroom, water provided in the rooms.
Smoking throughout the hotel and in the restaurants which I didn't enjoy.
Good location with a mall across the road. Very clean and security on the main door at nights so felt safe.
The breakfast was the standard buffet options and again the service was really slow. I had dinner in the bar one night until the smoke got unbearable and the food was ok.
I'd recommend it for a short business trip or stopover, but I think there's better luxury hotels in Abu Dhabi if you were on holiday.More
