Second time round equally as good as first visit!

Posted Jun 16, 2014
Pros: I loved everything about the hotel!
Cons: Maybe limit number of weekend day passes to non residents of the hotel.
Location: Very handy for a visit to the mosque. Short taxi ride from airport. Nowhere is far and taxis are so reasonable.
This was our second visit in 3 months to a fantastic hotel. Stayed on Gold floor where you are looked after so well - staff are brilliant and so friendly right throughout the whole hotel nothng is too much trouble for them. Hotel is extremely clean and the lobby area smells so good. The swimming pool is large, cooled to a lovely temperature in the hot months and well maintained. Staff are on hand to help lay towels on your sun-lounger, adjust your sun shade and bring an ice bucket for your complimentary bottles of water. There is a swim up bar which is very handy in the Summer heat. Hotel restaurants are excellent from the buffet restaurant Cuiscene up to Marco Pierre White.

Great hotel and the staff were fantastic!

Posted Jun 10, 2014
Pros: situation, ease of getting to local atttractions, away from built up areas / building sites, water views, staff were excellent
Cons: Did not see a Spa.....Everything else was excellent
Location: Location was great - close to mosque, souk, mall and two other 5 star hotels....Cooler and more relaxing than the city
Excellent hotel, great location - the staff and rooms were excellent. Concierge was very helpful. Had a first rate meal in Frankie's and used the free boat shuttle service to go for meals and drinks at the Shangri-la, Ritz Carlton and local souk. Taxis are so cheap, it costs very little to get anywhere in abu dhabi. Went for afternoon tea and Emirates Palace and the hotel was happy to help book anything we needed. Hotel had a beach and health club, although there was no Spa. Would recommend this hotel over any in the city, you are out of the building sites and get a nice breeze / view from the water - Would recommend a tour of the closeby Mosque - the hotel runs a free shuttle Even though the Shangri La and Ritz Carlton are probably more expensive - I liked this hotel more - lighter, fresher

Grown up luxury!

Posted Apr 21, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Pool area very busy
Location: We found everything we needed at the hotel for the type of holiday we were looking for. We only ventured out to play golf at Yas, Saadiyat and abu dha
The hotel, staff and ambiance was faultless. Gold floor definitley worth pushing the boat out for. Only slight criticism was the pool area was very busy at the weekend due to it being Easter and the hotel offered weekend passes to the public. However, it didn't impact on our enjoyment of the overall experience.

Excellent, stylish and full of life

Posted Feb 25, 2014
Pros: The rooms are beautiful
Cons: I'm struggling to think of anything!
Really enjoyed our time here. Booked Gold and was worth every penny. Fantastic choice of restaurants, beautiful views overlooking the Grand Mosque. The room was one of the best I've stayed in, absolute comfort and style with floor to ceiling windows with a breathtaking view of the Mosque and surrounding area. I have already recommended the hotel to a friend who has booked straight away. We ate at Marco Pierre White - outstanding, The Cedar Restaurant - superb along with the buffet (very good). Good gym and great pool scene. Service very good around the pool and beach area and top notch within the Gold Lounge areas.

Great Resort, Beach & Pool

Posted Jan 28, 2014
Pros: Great hotel and facilities, located on the River between the bridges and able to walk along the foreshore in lovely tropical surroundings.
Cons: Exterior a little outdated and could turn people off selected from web photos.
Location: Good location & can get cheap taxi anywhere you wish to visit in Abu Dhabi.
Fantastic Resort, exactly what we needed when staying a few days in Abu Dhabi before flying home to Australia after 7 days in Dubai. Staff extremely efficient and looked wonderful in their immaculate uniforms. Great room with floor to ceiling glass overlooking, pool ground, river & fantastic view across to the Mosque. Hotel provides free shuttle to & from Mosque. Good choice of Restaurants & great pool bar providing well priced snack & meals & a swim up bar. Hotel room generous and well appointed, with a large bath to soak in and a separate rain shower, cleverly included in the one bathroom/shower room. Very happy with a stay.
