Check in on points was easy and we got an upgrade to a one bedroom suite which was a very nice room overlooking the water with a nice balcony. We chose this hotel for proximity to airport and ferarri world etc - Abu Dhabi is a good 30 mins away by car. The hotel was nice and despite being busy was calm and laid back style. Staff were pleasant and friendly, service good, pool was nice and there was a good selection of food and restaurants at the hotel or close by with Yas shuttle. It was nice and relaxing after Dubai and we enjoyed our time there. The concierge department were very helpful in arranging some tours and explaining how to get around.

When you book a room for an adult and a child and pick the Yas waterpark package, the Radisson Blue web site clearly says that you will get tickets for the waterpark. But when you get to the hotel you will be told that only adults get tickets. So you have to either change the reservation to 2 adults and pay more than the tickets are sold for at the waterpark, or go to the park and line up twice: once to redeem the voucher and once to buy tickets for the children. I will not stay at this place next time I go to Yas Island.

Dear Ma S,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused and after reviewing our website it does mention within the terms and conditions that children’s tickets are chargeable however we will definitely try to make this clearer so that this situation does not occur again.

Sincerely

Thousands of visitors arrive at Abu Dhabi International Airport every day of the year, many having spent most of the previous night squat up in a metal tube 40,000 feet above sea level. In the steaming heat of the Gulf, jetlag sets in with a vengeance, particular during the stifling summer months. Drinking plenty of water, eating as healthy as possible and regular physical activity all reduce the symptoms. However, for the cure I’d have to recommend a couple of nights at the Radisson Blu Yas Island.
Located just a few short minutes away, your luggage will be taken care of as soon as the taxi pulls up to the door. Check-in will be speedy and courteous, your room will be spacious and luxurious, the view from your huge deck will be breathtaking, your bed will be large and comfortable, your food will be delicious and plentiful, your surroundings will be pristine and exotic and you’ll experience the ultimate in “Can do” attitude from the management and every team member: baggage handlers, front desk staff, business lounge hosts and hostesses, fine dining and casual restaurant waiters and waitresses, business center personnel, security guards, lifeguards, room service attendants, custodians, cleaners and valets. And all at a fraction of the cost for comparable quality service just about anywhere else in the world.
For those with severe symptoms or preferring intensive cure, an upgrade to business class is essential. The spectacular view of an emerald green golf course with a backdrop of the azure blue waters of the Arabian Gulf is especially impressive from the towering deck of the Business Class Lounge. Here breakfast, lunch and complimentary cocktail hour buffets assure the jetlagged guest’s comfort from the early morning hours to the late evening, regardless of how many time zones you have crossed or where your biological clock is still set. In fact, you might actually find yourself enjoying the Radisson Blu cure.

Room Tip: Ask for view of the Gulf, and , of course, an upgrade. Excellent value!

I was expecting a rather plain business hotel. But no, it was fantastic. Great swimming pool and a lovely view over the water. Dinner tonight was fabulous eating outside (now weather is OK), great service and food was excellent. Rooms were excellent with connecting rooms being the family room. Value for money good.

I have been a long-term guest at this resort hotel for the past 7 months. The hotel staff and management are the best I have seen in my considerable travels over 25 years and 15 countries. The facilities which include a large gym, private beach, first class restaurants, pool, and waterfront views of the Arabian Gulf are incredible. The housekeeping staff has ensured that my stay and that of my family when they have visited several times was first rate and welcoming. In particular my housecleaning man, Dayanand Samala represents the kind of first rate care and service that resorts such as the Radisson Blu Yas Island strive to achieve. He has provided incredible service to both myself and my family. He is representative of the quality of service one hopes to find in such a great hotel. g.trayer@yahoo.com

We're staying here for 1 week on the 7 floor which we have excellent housekeeping. He ( the housekeeping) always do his best, cleaning at the balcony, in the room, especially, he wipes dust everyday. All the staff work with highly efficiently and do not hesitate to help all guests.
For the business class room the you can be able to use facilities such as printer at the business lounge. You can also get some beverage and finger food for free at the lounge ( for some beer or with that you can get from 18-20.00), newspaper delivers through the front door every morning .
For entrance complimentary to Yas beach that we can collect the tickets from concierge, furthermore, the hotel has a free shuttle bus service to Yas beach and Marina mall. The breakfast is great and the pool has life guard for safety. For the manual (or the information book) book in the room is really useful, because it has all information we want such as schedule of the shuttle buss and easy to understand for example fire instructions, because they have both of pictures and texts ( I think it's good for children to understand that). Facilities for the business are great, fast internet both of LAN line and wireless, the hotel provides the land cable in desk drawer etc. But one thing I that the hotel should do better is the lady restroom at the pool, because the floor in the one of restroom is flood for DAYS and particularly on 07 oct that did not have toilette paper in the restroom and the floor was super wet

Room Tip: We have the connecting room but I have not heard any noise from the next door.
