Guest relations: Helped me in advance of my stay with a question, organized my room when I arrived very early in the morning, arranged a flight booking during my stay and there was always someone who asked if I need something or explained the complementary guest services without additional request Standard: World Class, everything tidy, clean and modern Food: Breakfast offers a wide choice but for that price it could be more fresh, Dinner was just incredible Rooms: everything is provided, intelligent features like wardrobe light and the style is more arabic (in Europe we would say classic), got an ... upgrade to Suite) Surrounding: There is a nice view on the Emirates Palace and Etihad Towers, but that was it. Either enjoy your day in the large hotel facilities or take a taxi for sightseeing, Abu Dhabi Marina Mall is the only location to reach by foot within 15 min(but only in winter in summer it will be definitely to hot) where you can eat at affordable prices Bewertung lesen

    The pool was beautifully arranged. Right on the beach. The pool chairs were great, very comfortable. Umbrellas are also available. The beach section was very narrow but perfectly adequate. The ocean was already too cold for bathing. But the pool was heated. Very pleasant. From dem24 dezemberwar the hotel very cramped and there were no more lying chairs available. So we had to with the towels on the lawn. Not so great for a 5 star hotel.

    The friendliness in this hotel is in my opinion too exaggerated. You were asked all the time, whether everything was okay, etc. In the entrance area, there were 3! Ladies in and issues such as it is, where it is, what you have done, etc. Well, it was too much. We stayed here only speak english, but apparently there is at the front desk also 2 employees speak german.

    There is 1 main restaurant, 1 beachrestauran in the lobby and you can sit and have a drink and food. We had booked half board. Breakfast was very good. Everything you could wish for. Scrambled eggs, omelets, speigelei, breads etc. Unfortunately me personally the salmon was missing. I would in a 5 stars hotel at breakfast to see. We were from 20.-29.12. In this hotel. Before christmas everything was good. The food was great, the atmosphere quiet and comfortable. The changed unfortunately on 24 december We had in front of the restaurant at least. 30 minutes line up in order to be clean-let, sometimes we were turned away, because there was no space... That did not please us. It had the appearance, that maslos was overcrowded. The food was very tasty.

    The rooms are very large and equipped with everything you need - except for wireless internet. You should at the front desk a keyboard (keyboard) to give leave, since we had the tv internet access. But is only around enamels to checken and a little surfing. The bed is big and comfortable. We slept very well. Everything was very clean. Each day the room is cleaned and new water. The minibar is full and not very expensive. Snacks are also against fee.

At first glance, a very good hotel. After we'd eaten in another hotel, however (Rotana Beach, also 5*), we noticed a big difference. The variety of meals and the quality was second to none. Because of this, we ate at the Rotana Beach multiple times, and found that the buffet was changed daily, which wasn't the case at the Khalidiya Palace. You got the impression that it was almost the same buffet every day. After an extensive tour of the Rotana Beach, we also found a difference in quality of the rooms. The conclusion is that in Abu Dhabi, 5 ... stars are not the same 5 stars. Bewertung lesen

The hotel is very recommendable. In Abu Dhabi itself still a lot is being built, also all over the hotel. We were bothered by the noise however, in the hotel and the outdoor area of the hotel there was nothing to be heard. The area surrounding the hotel is great, right across the street is the Emirates Palace, as well as the Etihad Towers. Also the Marina Mall is only 5 minutes away by taxi. If you are searching for a great hotel for bathing in an exciting city, this is exactly the place. I can also highly recommend the ... desert safari, which was really a highlight. The only downside about the hotel: wifi is charged extra. The should not be the case in a 5-star hotel. We knew it however before and were already prepared. Bewertung lesen
