“Best brunch ever”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

We had the Saturday brunch here and it is by far the best of any of the hotels in Abu Dhabi. A great selection in a great venue (especially when seated outdoors with kids). Would definitely return when back in the area.

Lovely friendly staff. Generous sized garden suites with views towards the Grand mosque and water. The food is superb without being overly fussy and the small modern shopping arcade next door is convenient for a coffee. Definitely worth staying in.

Room Tip: Ask for a garden suite overlooking the pool and grand mosque for the perfect view

My husband and i stayed here for almost 5 months and we had a great stay. ghansyam, housekeeping was very helpful, always remembers and since we are always out, he always left sweet message with our preferences like "i know you like this so i place some". i think this makes us feel home. The people from the reception was very accommodating and they know our names by heart. The pool and the beach was amazing.

I spent 7 days in the Shangri La and a great experience. The friendliness and attention of the staff is excellent. Upgrade to a premium room if you can, lots of space. Some rooms are quite a walk from the lifts so ask about this if it would be a problem. Eating by the pool is great but the menu small. The French restaurant is good but expensive ( all food is on the expensive side )ue. Go for the buffet in the main restaurant the selection and quality will surprise you. Same for breakfast.
Use the beach for relaxation; you will get great attention for food and drinks and there's normally plenty of space. If you have a car, self parking is just as quick as valet parking.
Shorts for men and skirts for women are frowned upon in the hotel ( and outside ) and certainly not in the restaurants. The lifts go down to the beach / pool level.
The Hotel is not too far from the airport but if you have a hire car not easy to find. There are some signs but you have to be lucky to pick them up. When you can see the Grand Mosque ( you will see this on any road from the airport ) you are close to the hotel.

Room Tip: I think all rooms have a sea view but make sure you get a view of the mosque across the water

Spent 10 wonderful days at this magnificent hotel. Booked Horizon Club level and well worth the extra! Friendly and efficient staff who took on board any requests made Would love to go back ! Could upgrade the afternoon tea selection and put a little more effort into selection of food available at cocktail time in the Horizon Lounge

Although we only overnighted at this hotel enroute to Dubai, we were hugely expressed by every facet of the stay.

The hotel is beautifully maintained as was our room. The service was almost too good - if that is possible. Each and every staff member was courteous to a fault and nothing was too much trouble for them.

The Breakfast Buffet was among the best I have ever experienced and once again the personal service ( unusual at a buffet) was wonderful.

Apologies for being so effusive. It was, by far the best hotel I have experienced on every count.
