Good location & wonderful hotel

Posted May 19, 2017
Location: There is a free shuttle bus outside the hotel that travels around Yas Island and it will take you to the all main attractions
This hotel has a wonderful cafe area to grab delicious cakes and coffees in reception. The breakfast buffet had a large array of options to eat and the staff are really helpful and friendly. The room was wonderful with comfortable furnishings, a great view from the 7th floor and a big bathroom. The outside terrace and pool area is well maintained with a lifeguard, beach towels and a pool bar to sit and enjoy a drink in the shade. The concierge staff were really helpful to help us plan and book activities and day trips and there are always taxis waiting outside to take you to destinations. There is a free shuttle bus outside the hotel that travels around Yas Island and it will take you to the all main attractions such as the F1 track, Viceroy, Ferrari World and Yas Mall but beware - the route can be frustrating when it takes a while to get to your destination due to all the stops but it is helpful.

Nice Hotel, friendly staff and clean facilities

Posted May 1, 2017
Pros: Staff is friendly and caring
Cons: Pool is very small
Location: Yas Mall, Ferrari World, Yas Marina Circle, Yas Waterworld
This is one of my favorites in the Yas Island circle. there are 6 Hotels next to each other and this is one of the top three. Depending on your personal reference or maybe the price offered, I would choose this one between the Crown Plaza and the Radisson. This is the most convenient one to me since the rooms are very nice and modern, the staff is always friendly and helpful as well as the food and amenities offered are good. We have stayed several times there and will be back again.

Close to Yas Water Park

Posted Apr 24, 2017
Pros: Liked the breakfast and the pool
Cons: The balcony door/window was not working properly, but they looked into it ASAP.
Location: The water park is nearby as well as a big mall.
The Rotana was a nice place to stay. Breakfast was superb and got the day started on a positive note. A nice pool as well that we used upon arrival.

Perfect hotel for a sunny 5 day Abu Dhabi break

Posted Apr 19, 2017
Pros: The rooms were spacious and felt brand new. The pool bar food was outstanding, plus the free wifi and shuttle bus was such a great thing to have.
Cons: The pool bar service was a little slow for drinks but the staff were friendly and they had a good selection of drinks on offer.
Location: The location within the cluster of 4-5 hotels on Yas Plaza was perfect, 15 mins from the airport so a cheap taxi away, 20 mins by bus to the mall.
We booked the Rotana after debating between this hotel and the Centro and we definitely made the right choice. Great hotel that felt luxury but affordable, spacious rooms, great hotel facilities - gym, coffee/cake station, sauna/jacuzzi, pool bar and fantastic food by the pool. The sun goes down quite early at the rotana ~ 3.30pm which is fine because you can pop over to the next door hotel (3 min walk from one sun lounger to another) to use the pool by the Centro (quieter, more adult pool) until the sun set ~ 6.30pm. The breakfast buffet was huge and great quality food. Everything made fresh and lots of healthy/unhealthy selections, definitely worth adding to your booking I'd say otherwise it's quite expensive when you get there. We only ate in the Rangoli (Indian) restaurant so cannot comment on the others. It's not cheap to eat and drink in Abu Dhabi but the food was outstanding, probably the best chicken dish I've ever had. The hotel bar was great, plenty of drinks choice and although we didn't eat the hotel evening buffet, it looked as impressive as breakfast. We ate more in the radisson where they have a great Italian called Filini and a happy hour Belgian bar (5-7pm each day) so definitely check those out, the happy hour made drinking a lot cheaper. I would go back in a heartbeat to the Rotana and Abu Dhabi, it's not the most exciting of places but it's a blissful way to get 5 days or so of great 40 degree heat!

Nice and quiet stay

The price is reasonable with good quality of amenities such as sauna and jacuzzi. The room condition is great and staff very friendly. The shuttle bus service right in front of the hotel make our traveling so easy. The beach just 15 mins walk is splendid. We enjoyed much this 3-day stay with Rotana.
