“A Relaxing Holiday!”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

My stay at the Radisson Blu during the Xmas season was excellent. The business class- room was spacious, beds comfortable with a good view of the golf course.
Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. I enjoyed the business lounge area. The food was good but better spread would be welcoming. The lounge staffs were extremely accomodating & friendly.
The Front office staff very helpful.They considered my need for a late check out.

The hotel comes as highly recommended for its excellent & efficient staff.

Room Tip: Having access to the lounge is worth the stay!

Stayed there twice during December and really liked it. Rooms are very nice with a balcony overlooking the swimming pool area. Staff very friendly and helpfull. Pool area good with a nice bar where you can order nice fuitjuices (fresh) and some small food platters of good quality. The breakfast is very good as well. Only negative is flying over airplanes early morning as the hotel is not too far from the airport take off runway.

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights on a mini break between Christmas and New Year. The hotel is lovely, we had a room on the 8th floor which had great views. The hotel is really near the airport, Yas Marina F1 circuit and Ferrari World, also water park that is opening in early 2013. Howver, it is some distance from the main city. The reception staff are very helpful. We arrived very early in the morning and of course our room wasn't ready (to be expected when you arrive at 7am and check in isn't until 3pm). However, the reception allowed us to get our swim stuff out of our cases and suggested we relax by the pool and as soon as the room was available the staff would come to find us. They did just that at 10.30am which was amazing, meant we could really make the most of our first day. The pool was a little cold but ok once you got in. The day beds are comfy and the lifeguard does watch out for people trying to reserve them all day with towels even if they aren't using them and will move towels if no one has been back for quite a while. A plus point I think really as there are only a limited number of day beds, although plenty of loungers etc. The service at the pool bar is a little hit and miss, we tended to go to the bar to order as it was much quicker than waiting for the staff to come around. The buffet breakfast is a little disorganised and again took time to get drinks served etc and food labelling is a bit poor but good range of food available including gluten free and dairy free food. The hotel itself is on a plaza of hotels and you are able to walk into any of these
and look around, book at the restaurants etc although around the area there isn't really any other amenities such as shops/supermarkets. The hotel has a shuttle bus to take guests to Marina Mall that goes several times a day. You have to book onto this and it is reliable re: timings and pick ups. Only issue with this is the last bus leaves the Mall at 7.15pm, so if you want to eat in the city (which tends to be later in the evening for dinner) you need to get a cab back to the hotel which is around 70 dhs and takes 45 minutes to get back to Yas island. Taxis are reasonable in general and all have meters so you won't get ripped off. In the hotel we booked a city tour via the concierge. We had varying levels of help from the staff on the desk, one we saw seemed very disinterested and basically told us to arrange things ourselves, we went back later when another staff member was on duty and found him very helpful, advising us of the best way to do things and arranging the trip we had chosen.

Had a fantastic time here while working in Abu Dhabi. In the business-class room, the beds were comfortable and clean, with a good view of the bay. I really liked the in-room espresso machine! It is a little far from the main city, but it has good proximity to the airport. Having to use a key-card to turn on amenities in the room is a little odd, but not terribly inconvenient. I especially enjoyed the access to breakfast and the business lounge that comes with a business-class room. The business lounge staff are very friendly and accommodating too, one of the highlights of my stay.

I recently stayed in this hotel for four nights with my two young boys. We found the hotel room to be very clean,modern and comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful at all times. The breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice and the serving staff were a delight. My boys loved the pool area and were very impressed at the pool bar when the barman offered to make them a mock cocktail just like mum's. I would like to congratulate the management on their staff training as at all times the staff were courteous and welcoming. The courtesy bus into the city was very useful. I would definitely recommend this hotel for families or indeed individuals, we will be back. I would also highly recommend the desert safari it was a fabulous experience.

Basic Radisson, pool area is quite nice. Be aware of possible concerts / parties on Yas Island, those might cause some issues.

I was very happy with my stay, the hotel was fully booked but I was able to have a late check-out!

The hotel was 2 min away from the conferences that I was attending, which made it very practical. However, I had visited Abu Dhabi downtown only once due to the length of the trip. The swimming pool looks like its more for pleasure than exercise, however, doing laps is possible.
