Great Hotel with nice beach and mall access
  • Recommended hotel

  • Proof of booking
  • Beach holiday
  • September 2014
Best Hotel we ever had with a nice beach and direct access to the Abu Dhabi mall. Even it was still very hot in September it wasn't that hard like expected. First we got a room on the construction side, but we could change fast too a even much bigger and quite room. We can highly recommend this hotel. read hotel review

Disappointed with no free Wi-fi
  • Hotel not recommended
  • Singles
  • City break
  • August 2014
This is a very big hotel and it is generally very nice which is why I was very surprised to find that Free Wi-fi in my room was not included in "my package"! I can't remember the last time Wi-fi was not included as I now regard it in a similar way to hot water and electricity and don't ask if it is included. There was free W-fi around the Beach Club but the quality was so poor it was impossible to use. Ironically the hotel send me a welcome email which I couldn't read until I got to my ... next hotel in Bangkok which provided free Wi-fi! read hotel review

If the rooms are not as somptuous as they were in 2005 and the next years, the hotel remains the best place to go to in Abu Dhabi for its very convenient location (discovery of the city, shopping, not far from the airport). All you want is to go back! read hotel review

Fantastic Location and Great Beach
  • Recommended hotel
  • Couples
  • Beach holiday
  • May 2014
Booked this hotel on a special offer which included full breakfast so it was excellent value for money. Ideally located in the Tourist Club Area and right next to The Abu Dhabi Mall, one of the oldest malls but still has all the usual shops. It has a few restaurants and food court but depending on what you want not that brilliant. There mongolian restaurant located within walking distance, which serves excellent food and the hotel is also located within walking distance of other hotels and restaurants. If you decide to use the hotel facilities it has a range of ... excellent restaurants and offers for happy hour but it can work out expensive. Tip always opt for local bottled water rather than the expensive bottles they always try to serve you. Very easy to get to Al Maryah Island which also houses some famous restaurants and has a lovely promenade with events at most weekends. Beach access is great. The water is clean and you dont have jet ski's disturbing you.unlike at many of the other beachfront hotels in Abu Dhabi. Great place to relax and unwind for the weekend, with easy access to facilities to do as little or as much as you want read hotel review
