Amazing resort with a poor service!

  • December 2015
The hotel service is very poor comparing to the location and the beauty of the place. I booked the rooms two months ago and I asked for specific floor and rooms that are close to the bridal suite because my sister wedding will be in the hotel beginning of December; however, as per the person who made the reservation they can’t book specific rooms until two weeks prior to checking in. so I called again in mid of November and I was surprised that they booked the rooms at the 5th floor and the bridal suite is at the 1st ... floor! So I talked to them and they agreed to make the reservation in the 1st floor but I have to pay extra money!! The manager (Alexander) was really not professional and the way he talked to me was very rude. I had to make this reservation because of the wedding otherwise I could’ve canceled everything. Anyways, after long negotiation with alexander he agreed to book the two rooms at the 2nd floor as the rooms will be very near to the elevator and easily I can reach the bridal suite in no time. But that was not the case. When I checked in I was surprised that the two rooms are far from each other and far from the elevator!! I talked to Alexander again however he was no helpful and so rude. I asked to talk to different person however all of them were not helpful and careless. So forcefully I stayed two days at the hotel but really the stay was not pleasant and the service is very poor. Whenever we order hot drinks they take 45min to reach the room!! The hotel rooms are amazing but the person can’t enjoy the room and views with the hotel bad service. read hotel review

Great stay in an amazing resort

  • August 2015
We have been to the hotel now for the third year and we always visit in summer. The weather is obviously quite hot, but we do enjoy the weather and when you stay by the pool or beach and get some rest during the day in the room or in the shadow, it is actually quite nice. The hotel is a large resort-style hotel with different pools. One adult-only area, one large pool area for "everybody including families", one smaller pool and a completely separate childrens pool. From the moment we arrived to the resort we were not only recognized ... as repeat guests (also it has been a year), but really every associate in the hotel is very accommodating and friendly. While I think that during most months the hotel is quite business driven, at least in summer there is a lot of families. The weekends (thursday afternoon to saturday afternoon) are crowded with locals so if you have the chance, try to go mid-week. During our time mid August there was quite a lot of German speaking guests, some well behaving Russian families and a mixed bag of nationalities from all over the world. The hotel provides an excellent atmosphere. read hotel review

    We stayed in a sea view room which really offered nice views for the turquoise waters of the sea and view over the resort. Rooms are quite large in size which makes it a comfortable stay also with our daughter in the room. Upkeep of the room is excellent and everything is very comfortable. A great bathroom, with rain shower as well as nice bath tub with view. Bed is also very comfortable and my daughter slept on the sofa which she was also very happy with. Plenty of water is provided complimentary in the room, very good amenities and I especially enjoyed the complimentary Nespresso machine.

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    There is a number of outstanding restaurants and bars at this hotel. We heard that the Steakhouse and the Thai restaurant are outstanding, but we have actually only used the main buffet restaurant Olea for breakfast. Breakfast is of very good quality and an amazing variety with fresh juices, selection of varieties from Western/Indian/Arabic cuisine with live cooking, a live pancake/waffle station, excellent selection of smoked cold fish etc. Definitely one of the best breakfast buffets we ever had.

    The service at this hotel is absolutely outstanding and should receive more than six stars... While we always choose our hotels to have very good service, this one is really outstanding and a true role model through nearly all departments. Everybody is accommodating, friendly, helpful and every request is carried out with pleasure. The room was always properly cleaned, including the balcony which unfortunately nowadays is not a standard in all hotels any more...

    There is plenty of facilities in the hotel. As mentioned in the beginning there is different pools. As we travelled with our 4 year old daughter we were at the family pool most of the time. Very relaxing, life guards all around, good water temperature to be refreshed but not too cold. Pool was cleaned thoroughly every morning. There is sunbeds and few cabanas around the pool which are very comfortable. The kids club is generally great, nice layout inside and a one-of-its-kind pool with different toys and a slide. Perfect for young children and all shaded and thus much cooler than the surrounding area. The kids club is also very well secured and no children can run away without supervision. The only let down this year was that there was a so called "summer camp" during the week and there was too many kids inside which resulted in the attendants quite overwhelmed and our daughter ending up in front of the TV, so we did not allow her to kids club mid week any more.

    The St. Regis is situated directly on the beautiful beach of Saadiyat Island, which I think is the best beach area in the Middle East. Amazing white sand, clear sea, even some fish in the water. The sea water is quite warm during summer so this is also suitable for those people that usually don't like to go swimming in the sea as the water is too cold in other places. It is an approx. 15 drive to the city of Abu Dhabi. There is also a very small shopping mall next to the hotel, it belongs to the same complex and features a small Spinneys supermarket where you can get all basic groceries, water etc. The only downside of the location is that currently there is lots of construction in the area as they are building some other hotels in new museums. We have not at all been disturbed by any noise etc, but from the beach you see the construction ongoing. By the way, the beach is cleaned every single morning in detail to make sure everything is perfect.

Hotel is still in very good shape and it is one of the best beach resorts in this area. Rooms are very nice with large bathroom. Pools and Gym are also fantastic. Problem is, that Hotel obviously stopped their previously outstanding service. Also more and more 'sandal package tourist' are coming to this beautiful Hotel. The queue in the morning to get a table for breakfast reached almost Abu Dhabi downtown. We observed over a period and seating capacity was simply not enough. We were allocated a table in the middle of corridor which mist likely does not exists normally. ... Consequence was that nobody served us. We had to fight hard to get coffee. I assume the dirty plates are still on the table. It was a lost battle for the staff. On top of that, the quality of food has dropped substantially. Mass touristic Hotel - nothing special. Very Very disappoint this time. read hotel review

5-star hotel, with 3-star food

The St. Regis is a wonderful hotel that provides sumptuous rooms with beautiful sea views. The pool areas cater for adults and youngsters alike. The staff are very friendly and will go out of their way to accomodate your every need. The setting is very romantic and set not too far from the city. There is a small shopping complex as the site also has its own permanent residents. The rooms themselves are long and beautifully furnished with a bathroom that shames the best of the best. The only problem with this hotel, is quite a big problem - the ... food is overpriced and definately not up to standard. Individual potions are little when not eating in the buffet restaurant, and definately not up to the 5 star standard that you should be receiving when paying such prices. I have stayed in 3 stars where the food has been much better. When we complained about this, nothing was done. Such a shame. A definate 5 star hotel, but with 3 star food at 5 star prices! read hotel review

If you are looking for something special, stop searching and reserve a room in the St Regis Saadiyat in Abu Dhabi. From the check in to the check out this hotel exceeds all expectations. The first impression is a blow in the gigantic lobby, the rooms are large (please ask for an ocean view room), the bath room has the size of a small living room, the breakfast is great, the pools are a real pleasure, the beaches are like on the maldives and the butler service is phenomenal. I really liked the complimetary tea and coffee service. Honestly I ... was surprised by the audience visiting this hotel. Much more family with children than expected, which gave a nice energy flow of this unforgettable totally over the top stay. read hotel review

Best beach hotel!

Except the surroundings the Hotel is perfect. It is not close to Abu Dhabi and therefore you can't find a lot around the Hotel than beach and a golf course. However, it is not needed anyhow. The Hotel is beautifully located on the beach and you will hardly find better beaches around the globe. It is absolute outstanding and the sea is beautiful too. Hotel is perfect from check-in to check-out. Not one single thing to complain about. Highest standard you can think of. Food variety and also quality is superb. read hotel review

Amazing hotel in one the best beach of the UAE
  • Recommended hotel

  • August 2014
This is a St Regis hotel, so quality and service are granted. The rooms are specious and the overall feel of the hotel is very relaxed. The pools are really good, because there are two, one foor kids and another one for adults. However, my favourite part was is the beach, with white sand and pristine waters... We went in August, which is low season in the UAE, however we managed to get a very good rate. read hotel review

    The pools are great. It is very good that they have one for adults only and another one for kids. Either or, they are very big and a great place to chill out.

    Sadiyaat Island is a little paradise. If you visit this hotel, your objective should be relax by the beach. At the moment there is not much to do around, but I believe that they are building some major attractions in the area, which soon will turn into a major destination.

We arrived at about 2pm, and was very warm welcomed at a personal desk. Rooms are extremely spacious and always very clean. We stayed only 1 night. A lot of extremely and friendly staff, amazing breakfast breakfast. Again (like days before in Dubai) at the beach, we were the only guests. The clarity of the water and white sandy beach is absolutely GREAT - just a "little" to warm. The first day we stayed in the normal pool, it's not very attractive. On the second day we stayed at the "Adult pool" and this place is really great. Of course ... both pools are cooled and refreshing. Congratulation for their staff, everywhere and anytime. The hotel is about 20 minutes from Abu Dhabi at Saadiyat Island, but it' s worth to extra kilometres. A place to return read hotel review

Probably best Beach Hotel in UAE

Top Hotel in Abu Dhabi - probably one of the best in entire UAE. Beach is just a dream with plenty of sunbeds and no hassle - even when Hotel is fully booked. Service was outstanding again and the quality of the food was excellent as usual. Breakfast and Dinner buffet is nearly perfect. Also for the kids it is a great place to stay and the kids club is simply great. read hotel review

Relaxing break in a fantastic location

Check in was busy, but we were asked to sit down and given a cold drink whilst waiting. We were shown to our room, sea view, and it was fantastic. The room is so tasteful and has a large bathroom which is a wow. There are various pools, adults only, and a family pool. The beach is fantastic, and has dolphins that swim by when the sea is calm. We ate in the buffet restaurant which was ok, but the breakfast in the morning was excellent, and being able to sit outside was a bonus. The staff are all so ... friendly and attentive. All in all we will be returning to the hotel again. read hotel review
