“Great hotel, excellent service”
Reviewed April 16, 2011

We just came back from our week-end spent at Al Raha Beach Hotel, we had a wonderful time. Firstly the rooms are very spacious and they have great views of the pool and the sea. We had dinner at the Azur restaurant and the service and the food were excellent, and I must say great value for money for the food too. the breakfast place is also great and there are so many items to choose from... Is close to Abu Dhabi and also Yas Island and is conveniently located near 3 golf courses. They are expanding the hotel by building a new wing, and there is some construction but the disturbance is minimal and we did not hear any noise at night from the room.

Room Tip: sea view rooms are best

My family and I stayed in this hotel in April 2011. The facilities were great and the hotel staff are very friendly, helpful, and efficient. But it really bugged us that when we have placed the "DO NOT DISTURB" sign in the door (electronically displayed) they would still ring the door, and would open it as if we are not in the room just to deliver the fruit basket. We are very thankful for the fruit basket but please respect the "DO NOT DISTURB" sign if its on. Another annoying thing was the noise created by the construction beside the hotel. The noise is up until morning! I know the management needs to expand the hotel, but can they at least stop the noise from 12am till 7am so people can have their precious sleep?

It's not all negative though. We liked the spa services in the 3rd floor as well as the sauna. Breakfast was great as we had lots of choices from mediterranean to western. It would have been excellent if they had Japanese and Indian food too but well, no one has it all.

this was our second visit to this hotel and it was excellent,the service and smiles that welcomed us at front desk when we arrived from airport made us feel at home,the room,food, service was excellent the staff were ever so polite and courteous especially at front desk.
i see other reviews mentioned building works but in our honest opinion this caused little disruption if any to our seven night stay.
building works or not we will certainly go back to Al Raha Beach Hotel

We booked a 14 day holiday with Dream Ticket, who initially were great, we booked a executive suite. On arrival the executive suite was not available, so we were put into an executive suite which was very spacious.
We went down to one of the outdoors reataurants, ther was no body else there, why,because it was right next door to the 24 hour building work.
The diplomatic suite aws fantastic, however as I am disabled i had to climb into the large bath to get a shower, and there was no slip mat , we asked for a slip mat on numerous occasions but we never got one. The staff in this hotel were excellent , and the restaurants in the hotel were very good but too hot at nignt to eat inside,
After 7 days we transferred to anothe hotel in Abu Dhabi.
