“Awesome hotel with very nice service”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

The personnel are highly qualified. The rooms are nice especially the bathroom. The restaurant are nice but the Quality / price ratio is too low.

The Raha mall near the hotel is not good at all. But the Al Etihad Plaza is quite good.

I'll not hesitate to comeback again.

Room Tip: The mangrove view is very nice. Don't forget to purchase the access to Water World and Ferrari w...

My husband and I stayed there for one month, we really liked the facilities there, the beach, 2 swimmimg pools, sauna ...etc. we stayed at deluxe room and it was v. Nice, big, the bathroom was just amazing, the balcony and also I saw the new alraha suit and 2 bedroom apartment which they call it deplomatic suit and we can say it is really lexury type but unfortently the royal suit (one bedroom apartment) is below the average u think for a moment that it was only a space then they decieded to convert it to apartment it is 200m sequre but the toilet v small not like deluxe room, No dining table, no washing machine( we have one later) ant they fix it on toilet, the cabinet is too small, no workin desk onle the tv table, the kitchen is not prepared well, the refreg. is v. Small like the one in std room. I think they can do more for this kind of room as there is only 2 royal suit in the hotel!! It is really need to renovate to meet the hotel std.
One more thing about the room there is No soundproof wall, my baby keep waking up duiring his nap becouse of the noisy every day from our neipers
House keepers are very special there, they clean the room well, generouse in complementry things but it is very obviuose that there is a shortage in staff, they didnt come quickly and you can see housekeepers outdoor doing stuff, and the one in kids club see in pool!! I know later that after opinning the extension the admin. Didnt hire any workers which is clear to us.
Yes I may return to the hotel again just becouse the facilities, staff and locaition.

Room Tip: Dont choose a one bedroom, or see the room befor paying, this was our mistake we deal and pay befor...

Stayed in for one night as we came to watch the metallica concert , we chose to stay here since it was the only hotel that offered reasonable rates than of those closer to Yas Island , a very nice hotel with some really friendly staff , we somehow manage to lock the door inside while leaving the key card however the hotel staff was prompt in rectifying the matter . For all those staying here you have to try their grilled chicken burger it is simply heavenly.Furthermore had a awsome view of the water front and was amazed on how it looked simply real !! ,i,e the beach . Rooms were well equipped with all the essentials , and we really had fun with the switch activated tint-glass another first for me !

This hotel really is 5*. Fantastic rooms - amazing marble bathrooms, massive tub, good size rooms, didn't hear a peep from anyone in adjoining rooms and suspect our screaming baby was not heard either - thank goodness.

Service staff were fantastic - friendly and very helpful. The booking process and front desk were amateur hour but who cares once you're there.

Fabulous pool, swim up bar, very child friendly without being a kids club. Breakfast was amazing in terms of choice and quality.

There isn't anything to do outside the hotel but this is the perfect spot for a short stay when you're breaking up a trip elsewhere. It's 10 mins drive from Abu Dhabi airport and they can pick you up or for about 30 AUS or get a cab for half that.

Highly recommended for 1-3 day layover or trip.

The man made beach and ocean bit isn't much and there is a view of a barren F1 track so you would be disappointed if you came for an extended beach holiday.

Room Tip: Stayed in a gulf room with a nice view on the way there (floor 1) and ground floor of the same block...

We stayed for 2 nights in Gulf View Room and it was excellent, the atmosphere, the facilities and the staff were very friendly. The kids were very happy and they don't want to go home.
Even the Piscine was very nice, seating outside watching the sunset infront was really amazing.
We hope to repeat it again soon.

We stayed 1 night in Deluxe Gulf View Room

The hotel is located just outside Abu Dhabi's (15 min by car to Corniche Road ). This can be a plus if you want to stay away from the city but have it at easy reach.
The Beach is ok with quite low quality sand and some weird constructions on the horizon (there is basically some kind of a wall about 50 m into sea... ) Infinity pool is big hoever theres no feel of "infinity" thanks to mentioned wall in the horizon :) Pool bar is small and even though it was not busy we couldn't find a free space and we had too get out of the pool to order drinks.
Room was very nice with the view on the sea. It was modern and very comfortable with beautiful bathroom.
Staff varied from super friendly and attentive to useless.
The reception lady - Honey was fantastic as was most of the staff. Pool bar guys seem to be slow and not very approachable.
The hotel has also indoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi which is very nice. Sauna and steam room are also very good quality. There is squash court and gym and guest disposal too and they looked good.
We had a meal at Azur restaurant and we enjoyed the romantic outdoor setting in the evening. Service was great and food delicious.
Hotel breakfast was a decent buffet with attentive staff.

I would recommend this hotel for a short stay . If you planing a longer vacation there are perhaps other options in the area.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms especially in the "new wing" can be quite a walk from hotel center (rest...
