Had a wonderful night at the Beach Hotel. The twin room was spotlessly clean and came with some nice touches eg: fruit bowl, cozy white towelling robe, slippers, sewing kit, hair dryer etc.! We asked for a room with a view over the beach area and it was nice to be able to go onto the balcony and watch the water sports activities. However, the balcony didn't have table and chairs so couldn't sit out there. I slept very soundly - the bed was the MOST comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in and the room was lovely and quiet. The buffet breakfast was fantastic, especially the poached eggs! This was followed by equally delicious waffles. Had a late check out so spent the rest of our time at the pool and on the beach where I enjoyed a swim. Overall, a fabulous stay, couldn't fault the staff....we will definitely be returning!

Room Tip: Go for a higher floor for the views

I have lived at the Beach Rotana Suites (part of the Beach Rotana Hotel & Towers hotel in the Tourist Club area) for nearly 5 years and can highly recommend the Beach Rotana Suites for both business and pleasure and for long or short stays.

The rooms at the “Suites” are clean, very well maintained and supported by a staff of professionals that routinely go above and beyond to insure complete guest satisfaction. You are treated like family at the “Suites”.

The attached beach, pools, sauna, kid’s playground area, tennis and squash courts and state-of-the-art fitness center are a great place to relax or work up a sweat. Very popular on the weekends.

In addition, the Beach Rotana has a fully functioning and staffed Business Center that has on numerous occasions assisted me in completing work related projects on time and regardless of the hour.

My family and I have eaten at all the restaurants (Italian, Buffet, Indian, Steak, German, Sushi/Teppan and Polynesian) at Beach Rotana numerous times and while we each have our favorites, we have never been disappointed with the meals or service.

Lastly, as someone who used to spend nearly 200 nights a year in hotels around the world on business, the Beach Rotana Suites in Abu Dhabi s one of my favorite hotels because it feels like I am home.

This is a conveniently located city hotel in Abu Dhabi with all the amneties one would expect of such a rated hotel in its price category. I would not say it is "Perfect" or "a Delight" but I would say it is comfortable, spacious and well equipped. It has a nice pool and beach overlooking flyovers, office buildings and high voltage towers. Probably these constructions appeared "after" the hotel was built.

It has a nice breakfast buffet, the only annoyance was when I leave to the buffet a few feet away to get some fruits or cheese I would discover my plate, half full juice glass and hot water kettle would dissapear by overzealous waiters :)

The car porch of the main entrance to the hotel is on the "small side", easily congested when more than 2 cars are delivering or picking up guest, it requires some difficult maneuvering by drivers and often other cars have to wait for longer than you would expect for an hotel of that size and stature.

Overall a good hotel when visiting on business (on the other hand, why else would you be in Abu Dhabi).... a 3 levels large mall is 5 minutes away on foot.

I have been staying here for work, first in the main hotel and then the apartments. Both offer great service, great rooms and good facilities. An excellent gym and swimming pool. Fabulous selection of restaurants to dine from and if you are here for a while on business make sure you grab the Rotana Rewards card.

Attached to the Abu Dhabi Mall - easy access to shopping and groceries...

I stayed here 3 nighst with my wife and 2 kids end of April 2013 and what a stay. This hotel was a lovely place to stay. From your first arrival till the last day everyone smiles and says hello. Although this isnt the cheapest hotel around what it has to offer can not be matched. The rooms are extremley clean and well kept, the balcony is a breath of freash air. The beach area is clean with lots of water sports to offer. Theres a shallow pool area and play gym for kids. The breakfast in this place really spoils you with plenty to choose from. Theres alot to do in this hotel with entertainment every night creating a fantastic atmosphere. The abu Dhabi mall is right next door so very convienent. When I first arrived i wasnt really sold on the hotel but Kudos to the managment as they did a great job and i would love to return to his hotel.

Spent the last week in the Beach Rotana in a Club Rotana room. The room was very nice and comfortable, not a bad night sleep. The Club on the 18th floor was also very good. In all the service within all area's of the hotel were very good. The only complaint is smoking within the resturants and hotel lobby. You cant walk through the lobby in the afternoon or evening without getting smoked out. I am not an anti-smoke person but I have never smoked and I might understand the lobby but the resturants; really??? The BEach Rotana needs to upgrade the policy a bit and rid smoking as from my observation the smokers were not staying at the hotel, they were doing conversations or meetings and were not guests. Would have been five stars if not for the choking smoke.
