“Wonderful rest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

We had a very short (3 days), but most enjoyable stay here, if you need a bit of TLC and a rest, this is the place to go to, gorgeous room overlooking the pool and beach, HEAVENLY smelling toiletries, view of the magical mosque from your bedroom window, delicious breakfasts, eucalyptus scented cold towels given out whilst relaxing by the pool, along with courtesy fruit juice, fresh fruit, sunglasses being cleaned, and attentive pool side staff. 10/10 English High tea, lovely evening meals. Attentive, happy, and very polite staff. I could not fault it and WANT TO GO BACK!! Lovely experience ....

Room Tip: We had a beach view room, overlooking the smaller of the pools, room no. 436. Perfect.

We stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of our honeymoon. As with most Shangri-La's that I've stayed at the hotel and service is fantastic. The food was brilliant with plenty of choice, they staff very helpful and the room lovely. We had a great night at the roof top bar which they take you to via a golf cart; I can't remember the name but worth asking about and going to for a late drink with some good DJs - the toilets are very impressive with the mosaic tiles! The attached mall isn't very big but worth a wander around and the gym and nearby pool was well equipped. The staff by the beach were great - especially the regular delivery of ice cold flannels!

Would recommend this Hotel quality service great food and location. In traditional style in the UAE you are well and truly looked after. All we can say is spoil yourself or surprise yourself. We will be back without a doubt breakfast on the terrace makes a must. Decent gym and spa too.

Abu Dhabi was not at the top of my list as a place to visit but having stayed at the Shangri-La my opinion has totally changed. We stayed as a stopover on our return from Hong Kong where we stayed at both the Shangri-La Kowloon and the Island Shangri-La and the service was excellent. However Shangri-La Abu Dhabi surpassed both these hotels to the extent that we will return to Abu Dhabi as a sole holiday staying at the Shangri-La. The warmth of the staff and the facilities and views are wonderful. Taxis are cheap and so it is easy to get around the city. I would recommend the excursion to the desert for 4WD sand bashing followed by the bedouin Dinner in the desert. Great fun. Tip: whilst soft drinks are free a beer will set you back €25.00!! A
Cocktail at the hotel was only €9.00.!! Overall a fabulous stay.

Room Tip: try to get either a terrace room overlooking the pool or a higher floor overlooking the pool for fan...

picked this because it was away from the city and because we knew S-L service from before. Not disappointed - a good package. service sometimes a little bit too simpering, but all very well meant and better to be attentive than not. comfortable rooms. the highlight - Pearls and Caviar - this is not a hotel spec restaurant, it is well above that and is a destination on its own!

Room Tip: horizon club is worth the extra just to get away from what is no doubt a hectic weekend hotel as the...
