    Spent a long weekend staying at the Southern Sun Hotel for the F1, staff are particularly helpful and approachable. Breakfast is very good, we enjoyed the late rooftop bar relaxing in the cabana's. All in all a very positive stay. Thank you Southern Sun for your hospitality and taking such good care of us all.

    Stay at this hotel every year when travelling on business to Abu Dhabi, this year arrived at 3 in the morning and there was an issue with our booking, nightshift manager sorry I didnt get your name (on duty night of 10.11.19) was great very accommodating and very professional as was the reception staff. They quickly resolved the issue and had us in an upgraded room in no time. Having stayed here now a few times already I find the staff are friendly, professional and very polite. There would be no reason why I would not stay here again in the future.. well done Southern Sun Team keep up the good work and see you again next year!!
