Hotel and staff were lovely...I celebrated my birthday here and they made me feel very special. We only stayed for 3 nights...I would loved to have stayed longer. Would definitely stay here again...given half the chance!

I stayed almost 2 weeks on a business trip in the Hilton Abu Dhabi at the Corniche. The room I had was excellent and all the facilities as well. Overall this was my second time at Hilton. The first time was back in September where I stayed two days. This first stay made me choose the Hilton a second time and it will be my first choice always. The location is great as you are in the heart of the Abu Dhabi Corniche and near to all the interesting places downtown.

The service in the Hilton is outstanding, especially on the 10th floor of the executive rooms. At this point I would also like to thank Nina and her team, who always did their best and made me feel home.

Looking forward for the next time.

My family and I have just returned from a truly enjoyable stay at the Hilton Abu dhabi. It was our second trip to the UAE, on the first occasion we stayed at the Hilton Dubai creek (March 2011) however the Hilton Abu dhabi is much better.
The ease of check in on the 10th floor was great, we were able to get an early check in. Salem of your front of house staff is excellent, very attentive even providing candy for my 3 year old daughter. What amazed us most was that your staff remembered our names, it those small things that make you feel really appreciated.
We stayed on the half board package, great when travelling with children as means you don't to search out places to eat. Breakfast both in the lounge and the 1st floor restaurant great. So much choice. Of the other establishments we loved Vascos, and the Thai restaurant.
Housekeeping staff exceptional, knowing we were travelling with our young daughter they left extra bottled water. We found the rooms large with good quality furnishings. We were never annoyed by traffic noise.
The executive lounge offers great views over the gulf, Jose of the executive staff will cater to all your needs. Food changes each evening and never runs short. They are very welcoming to those travelling with children.
The pool area is one of the best we have come across. Pools for all ages and ability. The beach is well kept with clean white sand. Beach is very safe. The spa staff are a credit to your establishment, especially Roxanne and Shelia.
Many thanks for a truly amazing holiday, we will definitely be returning as soon as next year, will do stop over own way home from Australia.

Room Tip: Book room on the executive floors the extra money is well worth it. Access to the executive lounge i...

In a region where newer and grander is the norm the Hilton shows its age.

The rooms are average to good by US standards, but small, old and dingy by Emirati standards. The bathrooms are dated and small certainly compared to other hotels in Dubai.
While it may not be a fair comparison it is the only one I can make given that I have never stayed anywhere else in Abu Dhabi.

What is really outstanding is the resort area across the street by the beach.

Just returned from a one-week first-time visit to Abu Dhabi and could not have been more pleased with our choice of hotel. Other reviewers have commented less than favourably on the hotel's age, but once inside there is nothing to suggest that it is out of time. The Beach Club is ideal if you wish to soak up the sun, swim in the pools or the sea or go sailing, waterskiing etc. There is a decent choice of places to eat and drink by the beach. The restaurants in the hotel offer a good variety of cuisines and prices; in a week there was no need for us to eat anywhere else. Just beware the obligatory 10% service charge and 6% tourist tax on all f&b purchases. Finally, a word for the staff. Everyone we encountered was pleasant, helpful and willing to please. So well done Hilton; our first trip to this part of the world was very successful, thanks to you and, of course, the fabulous weather!

Stayed here for 8 nights, the main reason for our stay was the F1. At first glance the hotel does appear dated and it is, but once you go inside it is a lot more impressive.
Our room was very clean, and done out very nicely. We didn't have much of a view although this is something we wasn't fussed about.
The beach club was very good, plenty of sunbeds whether it be on the beach or by swimming pool, the sunbeds were pushed a bit to close for my liking, although it was never overly busy. You do need to walk under an underpass to get to the beach club, but was not a real problem.
The breakfast buffet was very good with plenty to choose from and all the 8 or so restaurants within the hotel are also good, albeit some being better than others.
All in all good food, good location, and great service. The only real gripe we had was the WI-FI in the room/hotel didn't work at all. Plus only around 30mins from Yas marina track and airport.

As a regular Hilton Platinum customer, I was a little disapointed with this hotel. I've come to expect high standards from the brand, particularly in the Middle East, but this hotel was built in the 1970's and it doesn't compare well to others in the region (I was in the Hilton in Doha last week, and it was excellent).
I took quite an expensive room on an executive floor - it was quite small, the window was tiny, and all the furniture was that dark wood stuff that you get in older hotels. The air conditioning never managed to get the room cool, and it's November - it must be quite bad in the summer. The shower was a "stand in the bath type" and controlling the water temperature was impossible. Lot of road noise from outside - the windows are only single thickness.
Plus points - the service was excellent and all the staff very nice and helpful. If you're after a beach location then this is perfect - there's a subway under the road to Hilton's private beach complex which has bars, resturants health clubs etc and was very nice.

Room Tip: sea view is nice but noisy - take a high floor if you want something quiet
