My wife and I just stayed for a short weekend in early June 2014. In a way it is a typical "corporate" type of hotel, with clean and comfortable rooms. Very well located if you are attending gigs at the du forum / arena. Staff at reception was very helpful and friendly. The Italian restaurant is very good. The only thing I would improve is the variety of food outlets in the hotel. Definitively a place we would go back to.

Overall this hotel is awesome. The staff are extremely attentive, the rooms are very clean and comfortable. The restaurants offer wonderful meals with many healthy choices. The Radisson Blu Yas has a well appointed gym, sauna, pool and spa. My only complaint was that the in room internet services are rather slow for a high quality hotel like the Radisson Blu Yas

Check-in was dissapointing. Very slow and disorganised. Had to explain things to the staff several times. In the end it took far longer than it needed. It should not need 20 minutes when you hand over booking confirmation, everyones ID and a credit card.

The hotel itself was very good. Rooms were large and comfortable. Bathrooms large and clean.

Pool was good with a seperate pool for adults only and the pool staff did act when any kids slipped in.

Food was good. We ate at the buffet first night which was standard fair but better than most. Second night we ate at the Italian which was excellent. The open kitchen is great for watching the chefs in action.

Snacks from the pool bar were very good. Drinks orders where very hit and miss. With five of us ordering drinks and mixers the orders were getting confused and it took a few rounds before we got the right drinks.

Breakfast was very good, just remember where you are. Chicken sausage and veal bacon are the name of the game.

On the subject of drinks the 'main bar' in the hotel is tiny and simply a small screened off area of the foyer. Stills Bar at the Crown Plaza up the road is a much better choice if you are looking for a proper drink.

One note that Yas Island is a bit of a distance away from the main Abu Dhabi island. I've seen a few reviews on here moaning that its a distance from Abu Dhabi. Yes it is, but its hardly the hotel's fault if you didn't look at a map! If you are going to a concert at either of the Du venues, or one of the theme parks this is a great base. We will be going back.

I love this hotel, the pool, the eating options and the ballroom are all well appointed and well staffed. And the underground parking and free wifi make this an obvious choice for me. I did have an issue with my room, which was again comfortable and very roomy! We had 2 connecting rooms 209 and 210. It would seem that these 2 rooms are on different AC ducts. Both rooms were non-smoking YET every time we came into the room it smelled like a pack of smokes had been consumed. The cleaning staff did spray the carpets but the smell was coming from the AC, odd that there was no smell in the hallway. So my advice is check the rooms 1st and if there is a smoky smell ask to be moved. But that was the one and only issue we had with our hotel stay and I can tell you without hesitation we will go back. The chocolate muffins at breakfast are amazing!

Dear James P,

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review.

We are glad to hear that you loved your stay with us from the pool, to the restaurants and the free Wi-Fi. We are however sorry to hear that your room smelt smoky this is not normally the case however we will look into this as we can imagine how unpleasant it is for a non-smoker to have to face this in their room. We hope that we can welcome you back for another stay and of course some more chocolate muffins soon.

What can I say? It was an excellent stay ... I stayed there for one month ... and I can't speak highly enough of its staff ... To name a few ... Happy, Gift and Kola from Front Office, Peter from Concierge, Christine from Breakfast Asymmetry, Kathy from Filini and All the boys from Shams ... And my housekeeper, whom I terribly forgot to ask for her name, an African decent with dark complexion, room 248, always so friendly greeting me every time I met her on the corridor ... which is pretty much every morning and afternoon ... Well done to them all ! They have made my stay an enjoyable one, and dear management, please take care of them ... you have an amazing staff there! :) :) Not to mention, amenities have been great ... from the room, bed, toiletries ... Once again, well done! :) :)
