My wife, 2 year old daughter and I are planning a trip to Abu Dhabi in the Autumn.
All we want to do is stay half board in a luxury hotel with nice buffet breakfast, nice pool with childrens area, sandy beach and then nice evening meal, ideally with a choice of restaurants although not essential.
When we have stayed in Dubai, we have stayed at the Mina A'Salam and the Westin in Jumeirah and we are looking for something similar.
It seems like everything except Emirates Palace is within budget. What would people recommend?
The St. Regis Saadiyat Island? Shangri-La? Ritz Carlton? Fairmont?
We're not a fan of high rise hotels so maybe not Etihad Towers.
Any advice gratefully appreciated.
