We stayed here last month and had an amazing visit. We were last here over 25 years ago and although Abu Dhabi has changed beyond all recognition The Hilton staff, service and welcome were all that I remembered. (The old pictures of the hotel in the lobby are lovely and took us way back!)
Beautiful room spotlessly clean with all the bits and bobs you expect, safe fridge iron and board dressing gowns and huge towels. Upgrade to the executive floor if you can, you then have the use of the services offered there which include breakfast, afternoon tea, early evening canapes and drinks. Plus tea and coffee, a fridge full of cold drinks and fruit are there for you all day. All the staff here are excellent and want only to make your stay the best possible,
The beach club across the road (a safe well lit underpass from the hotel gives you access) has everything you need watersports, including floating yoga !! pools, ocean swimming, lovely beach restaurant and gym...which must have one of the best views !! Lots of beds, towels and brollies and some one to help if you are on your own.
Lots of restaurants to choose from within the hotel we ate at the Royal Orchid Restaurant Thai and Chinese and outside at Escape on the beach front ...both fabulous.
You must have afternoon tea at the Emirates Palace Hotel a short walk away..quite an experience!! If you like gold ...you will love this place. Marble, crystal chandeliers, fountains....and gold and all on a grand scale. They do tours of the hotel but when we were there it was the Abu Dhabi film festival and everyone was arriving for the Grand Prix so the hotel was full, so no tours but you can have a stroll round and look at the shops ...and if you want a gold i pad ...they have one !! When we booked afternoon tea they did advise us just to order one as it is enormous and now I see why people were leaving with large cake boxes of what they coundn't eat !! Tea includes little quiches sandwiches scones and cakes and then just to finish a warm chocolate fondant ...sprinkled with gold of course!! Marvellous.
We will certainly be going back to The Hilton Abu Dhabi as it has everything you need for a perfect holiday. When you look at the hotel from the beach it's 10 stories are towered over by hotels nearby ...but that only adds to its charm. A wonderful place to stay.
