Been there for 5 days and the friendliness and supportiveness of the staff was exceptional - although in the Emirates one enjoyes anyhow the arabian hospitality almost everywhere.
Room was very tidy, they even overdid it a bit with changing towels.
Complimentary fresh fruits in the room was a nice goodie too.
The air condition cannot be adjusted reasonably so I it was a bit too cold AND humid in my room for me. On the opposite site of the hotel there is a construction site - an unpleasant noise phenomen often experienced in Abu Dhabi - but in the Al Maha you enjoy mostly silence, since the windows protect very well against the outside noise.
Breakfast buffet was plenty and fresh. Coffee was tasty and lots of friendly staff taking care that it got refilled instantly. In particular I liked the fresh fruits and dairy selection offered.
The hotel runs a gym. The equipment is state of the art and kept clean. The swimming pool on the roof top of the hotel is a bit small for a decent exercise but good enough to cool down during the heat of the day.
The WLAN internet only comes at a cost. This is a questionable policy of Rotana since many other places offer this for free.
As a summary - a very nice hotel featuring the appreciated typical Rotana quality standards to the benefit of the guest.
