“We will defo be returning”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Great choice of hotel ! We arrived at 10am and although we had to wait a while to check in we were more than happy with our choice of hotel. The lady receptionist was polite and professional although I must say her male colleague was not so polite or professional - he yawned as I was talking to him and I am sure he was chewing gum! However I must say that this is the only negative. The hotel is opposite the Yas Racetrack, you have a great view if you do not go for a sea view room. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows even more so. The best thing about the rooms here are the showers - they are proper power showers and really did the trick. Everything about this hotel was lovely - I cannot wait to return

Room Tip: Racetrack view so you can watch the world go by !

I stayed at the Radisson Blu as my husband had a work conference there and was expecting a dull business hotel, so was very pleasantly surprised by the lovely location, good restaurants, nice rooms and particularly pleasant pool area.
It is ideally located for the Grand Prix Circuit and Ferrari World and a 30 min drive into the centre of Abu Dhabi. Very close to the airport, maybe 10 mins, but no aircraft noise over hotel.
We upgraded to a 'Business Class' room which was worth it for the balcony and view over the lagoons to the city.
Very good breakfasts. Charming and helpful staff.

Room Tip: Upgrade to Business Class room for a balcony and great views.

After a wonderful stay at this hotel several years ago, we didn't even consider another hotel when planning our recent trip to Yas Island. However I doubt we would stay again.

Our flight arrived in the early hours of the morning so we were very tired upon arrival. We had booked a 1 bedroom suite for ourselves and an 11 year old. At checkin, there seemed to be a great deal of concern about the fact we needed to pay for an additional bed as while this was a suite, there was only a king sized bed. The 11 year old could stay in the room FOC but we had to pay for the bed. A bit rich but we agreed, only to find that when we eventually arrived at the room, there wasn't a bed set up. By that point it was about 0230.

(Also before we went to our room, the checkin agent started pressuring us about signing up for a meal package while staying at the hotel. We just wanted to go to bed.)

The next morning we realised the foldaway bed that we were paying for had a threadbare mattress so you felt you were sleeping on the springs. The 11 year old didn't complain until morning; she was so tired by the time the bed was set up, she just went to sleep. We had to get another bed although it was only marginally better.

And after we had our showers, we noticed water leaking from the ceiling and streaming down the walls. After reporting this matter twice,as it was getting worse, maintenance finally arrived. We went out for the day and came back to discover part of the ceiling cut away and air conditioning fan now exceedingly loud.

I cannot understand why we were not moved into another room but there wasn't even an apology.

The Radisson Blu left such a wonderful impression the first time around but we are not prepared to stay there again.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us again and for taking the time to leave a review.

We understand how frustrating this situation must have been and please rest assured that all comments are being looked into further to prevent this kind of disruption happening again.

Once again thank you for your review as it is reviews such as yours which allow us to us to continually improve our services and therefore our guest’s experience. We hope that this one off experience does not stop you from staying with us again and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back soon.

Stayed at the Radisson Yas Island from 16th - 22nd April 2014.

The customer service was great even prior to arrival. SHAHNOZA was in contact ensuring all was in order for our arrival.

On Arrival we were met by Shahnoza, who ensured a smooth check in.

Our room, a superior seafacing was good, and size more than adequate for my 2 daughters and I.
There was also a nice chocolate cake for my daughters' pending birthdays

The bathroom was roomy and facilities good.

The pool area is fine for the size of hotel, even during busy periods there was sufficient loungers available.

Another member of staff who impressed was AHSAN at the concierge desk. Following a mishap (me leaving me iPhone in a taxi!) he made the relevant enquiries and eventually spoke to the taxi driver who in turn returned with my phone. (Thank You).

This is a good base if you are hoping to visit Yas Waterworld / Ferrari World and other attractions, but a 60 Dirham taxi ride to the main Abu Dhabi city.

Overall a great experience and would return when in Abu Dhabi.

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms are nice :)

I have stayed at many hotels around the world but my recent stay in Radisson Blu at Yas Island was superb. The location was wonderful, so close to the airport, In a nice quiet are , but only one hour to Dubai. The facilities are adequate and the receptionists are most helpful and friendly. The rooms are spacious some with balconies and sea view which is what I had. The restaurants are very nice. fellinis and Americos restaurants are lovely restaurants with great service and food. In Americos there was a delightful young Thai waitress by the name of Pikal who was so funny and kind. She could not do enough for us, and always had a big welcoming smile. In general the service here throughout is excellent, so is location and the beach is amazing with a huge choice of activities. I highly recommend this quite exquisite area of Abu Dhabi and the Radisson Blu of Yas Island.

I just returned with my family having spent 6 nights. Check in and check out was very quick and efficient. Special credit to Gift at reception who my son became very fond of due to his very polite and friendly approach. Room was very spacious and with all necessary amenities, very clean and looked after everyday during our stay. Breakfast had a very good variety although monotonous, same food all days. Close to main local attractions and taxis always on stand and good shuttle service to the mall. One down side I felt was customer care/relation from senior management compared to various hotels we have previously been. Various times management officials walked by us without any acknowledgement or at the pool bar standing but never greeted us or asked about our stay. This was but compensated by the other staff. Specially the security guard Paul , at the door Kola and Peter. Very professional and interactive and very friendly. Overall very good hotel.
