“We had a very nice stay”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Very nice hotel with very friendly staff. The hotel has a passage to the Abu Dhabi mall so this is very convenient just to go shopping or have a drink in the mall. Rooms are spacious,very nicely decorated and fully equipped. Pool is very nice with a great view and a swim-up bar. The hotel also offers towel service. The breakfast buffet is amazing with great service. The only bad thing about this hotel is, there is no free wifi.

i have always found staying at the beach rotana to be of the highest quality within standard of the rooms, service and a range of good quality restaurants to choose from. the hotel is next door to the shopping mall so in all.. it has everything.

the spa is amazing and you should try the signature massage..

i have always been welcomed back and it feels just like home.. 'with alot of friends around' haha..

it is worth a visit and i look forward to your POV...

This review is not for the hotel; it is for the serviced Apartment/Suites that have a separate entrance and staff.
I've been here almost a month, which means I have a good understanding of the hotel. To make it easy, here is my pros/cons list:

Pros:
Connected to a mall
Free Gym
Lobby breakfast staff is very nice

Cons:
Dust mites- expect itchy legs DAILY

Walls are PAPER THIN - you can hear conversations from your neighbors who are talking at normal volumes.

Food is mediocre and overpriced

Spa was overpriced and worse than mediocre

Pool has a nice view but don't expect anyone to take your order in a timely manner; also, don't expect the food to be good, either!

No taxis in front - you need to walk

No valet

Abu Dhabi in August is very hot indeed. We had a stay over on route to Australia and chose the Beach Rotana, due to its good reviews and position next to the Abi Dhabi mall.
Its about a 45 minute drive from the airport. The hotel is on the beach, although a very small beach. It has lovely grounds, nice pool, gym etc. It was too hot to do anything other than catch a few rays and try to cool off, but not in the sea as it was 30c during our visit. The pool was cooler though. Aircon in the hotel was a must and worked very well. The room we had was a standard double, it had a small balcony but as you guess, it was too hot to sit out!!
A visit to the Mall, again to cool off.
The breakfast was excellent, everything you needed or wanted. We dined at the buffet at night and this was again excellent if a little pricey.
We paid extra to keep the room till 6pm as we had a late flight.
We would definately stay at this hotel again.

The hotel location is in the heart of Abu Dhabi ,
And it is connected to Abu Dhabi shopping mall were there is the cinemas and restaurants
It is worth staying at if you are going to Abu Dhabi.
The hotel also had access to the beach and swimming pool .

This Hotel & its staff are just amazing. An early check in was arranged for us so we had day use of a room and then we were upgraded to a 1 bedroom apartment. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, the Hotel was exceptionally clean and in a great location. We stayed again on a stopover and the service was just as great. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Both our rooms were gorgeous - 1 bedroom apartments on 15th Floor - great view
