My colleague and I had a fabulous 8 day break at the Hilton Capital Grand.We had a beautiful room on the 9th floor with pool view which is a bit quieter than facing the other way, i.e. the executive airport and eight lane main road.The room was very spacious and the bathroom was a dream. A massive bath tub, plus a huge glass walk in shower. The marble and mosaic tiles, the grouting and silicone edging were in top condition. No mouldy corners at all ! We booked half board and were very impressed with the breakfast and dinner buffet. From smoked salmon, fresh fruit, Arabic hot & cold specialities, pancakes to a variety of freshly cooked egg dishes at the newly introduced cooking station in the Oceana Grill made our breakfast a very enjoyable experience. The same can be said for dinner. A vast choice of salads, Arabic starters, main courses and puddings feature in the buffet ! I must not forget to mention the incredible variety of breads. All this plus the professional but very personal style of service delivered by Edgar, Sineia, Jennilyn and Jimmy made dining at the Oceana Grill an unforgettable experience. Also Chef Santos went out of his way to look after his breakfast guests.
The pool area was well stocked with towels, sun loungers and even comfi beds. The noise from arriving and departing executive jets and helicopters could hardly be heard. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle service & entry to a beach Club on Yas island. A word of warning when it comes to spending a quiet day on Yas beach. No chance as Yas Beach Club is not far from the flightpath of Abu Dhabi International Airport, nor the Formula 1 race track. where training seems to go on till 11pm.
Our room package also included free access to the brilliant Spa within the hotel complex. Ms Charlotte at the Spa's reception area made our relaxation sessions a true joy.
Should you want to buy spices and Arabic delicacies a huge Carrefour Supermarket is in walking distance as is a Fast Food outlet.
We would be very happy to return any time !!!!
