“Dinner by the pool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

We didn't stay here but we spent our last dinner in Abu Dhabi at this hotel. We had dinner by the pool at the Pool cafe and what an amazing place this is. Entry is gorgeous, there was a lady playing a harp which was lovely people were buzzing around, there was also entertainment by the pool and the bar shuts at 12pm. We had a simple pool menu just burgers n kebabs and also had sheesh a. Food was yummy. The pool is very inviting and there is a large children's play area in the pool. The view of the "Headquarters building" (I call it the Coin building) is awesome...so close!

The room, a gulf junior suite, was absolutely perfect. The staff were always helpful and attentive. The facility was perfectly located for the F1 race and if one was looking for a hotel close to the airport or the Ferrari World.

The facility also has some very good food as well as a liquor store. Directly connected was also a small mall with a couple restaurants. Everything one could want for a getaway.

Room Tip: Gulf Junior Suite

This property was recommended by ny business client, but when we went as a family and my mother in law the experience was amazing , Big rooms nice ambience huge pool area with kids splash pool and a private beach to relax. Perfect place to go and relax.. lovely food for non vegeterians not many options for veg people.. but u have mall next to hotel and good part is the both are interconnected.
Its good value for money and with all amenities to relax and enjoy-- good for family.

Room Tip: Facing the pool

We had a fabulous 3 days here and just about everything was perfect. We arrived early and the receptionist arranged for the room to be made up early which was a Godsend. We also had a late check-out at no extra charge. The staff were so helpful from the receptionist right to the house-keeping to the valet staff. The food choice was excellent and was something different on the buffet each day. The pool area is fantastic and the staff around the pool very helpful. All in all I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 4th floor and although we weren't facing the pool the view was still lovely as...

Fantastic hotel and although a fair way from downtown Abu Dhabi, it is very close to the airport and Yas Marina for the F1 (taxi to Yas Marina Circuit about £5 each way), which was the purpose of the trip. Food and service were fantastic, and the hotel was spotless throughout. Pool area and bars were great also. The air con in the room was very efficient, and also silent - so many hotels have noisy aircon! Would recommend this hotel and would love to return.

Again at Al Raha Beah, although it was my fourth stay, they still able to estonish you with their welcoming behavior and their efforts and struggling to make you feel at home.
From the entrance up to the reception to the room services and SPA and swimming pools staff.
Restaurant crew, was and still the most notable for me, there warm smiles and honest welcoming faces were notable, and the most surprising thing was that the crew was even able to remember the type of juice and my favorite drink .
Thank you very much Mirza, Emy, Karren and Essam for all of those nice times that I felt with you , and be sure that this hotel with your efforts and such crew presence will remain one of the first options I have .
I will never forget the training staff, Yalem , Muzhar and Youniesh, who were always around, and always ready to provide any service that I need even before I asked for it .
I think that the hotel management must be proud of the existence of such crew, in addition to high-end facilities and comfortable rooms which shows a high commitment toward customer satisfaction.
I advise you all to go to that hotel , there you will feel that you are the first concern , no matter how many are you, where you will find several things from paradise water, nice views and delicious food, as for the angels… you will get that feeling from the way you are served.
Raha Beach Hotel Staff,,,,, I wish you all the best , , looking forward to return again there.
