I highly recommend the Radisson Blu Yas Island hotel and its staff. I recently enjoyed a long term stay (6 months) in the hotel where I was able to sample the basic room, the business class room and their suites. All three were excellent.
+ Atmospherics. Clean, friendly, professional, quality. Great balance between individual comfort but not at the expense of other guests.
+ Excellent Value. Afsar was extremely helpful in creating an adaptable, long term contract that created a win – win – win situation for my employer, myself and the hotel.
+ Superb location. Near the airport. Free beach access. There is lots to do on Yas Island (F1 Track, du Arena, Ferrari World, Yas Water Works, concerts like the Rolling Stones and Justin Timberlake, and a variety restaurants) and in the vicinity. Downtown is readily accessible by bus, cab or rental car.
+ Pool. Beautiful lay out, very well maintained and clean. In the summer months, I found the chilled pool water very refreshing especially when swimming laps.
+ Excellent sleep quality. Rooms are quiet and well appointed.
+ Cleanliness. Both Stanford and Cryton kept my room spotless.
+ Laundry service. Very timely, quality laundry service.
+ Wifi and Ethernet came with the room for no additional charge.
Staff stand outs:
Afsar Khan, the Director of Sales. Afsar understands the concept of win-win-win; when I had to modify our long term arrangement because of circumstances beyond my control, he worked with management to make sure I was treated fairly.
Moses Solomon, Laundry Manager. Moses is very conscientious in making sure that each customer receives excellent service.
Ahdi Adel, night manager. In spite of my grumpiness, Ahdi came to my room made sure I was connected to the internet. When I checked in late and thought there was a problem with the wifi, Ahdi personally came to my room and fixed the problem which happened to be with my laptop and not the wifi. I was kind of embarrassed, but he was still gracious.
Stanford from house cleaning. Of the ten house cleaning staff that served me on different occasions, all were excellent, but Stanford was consistently the best because of the good job he did and his timeliness.
If you are looking for excellent value, comfort and a great staff, you can’t go wrong staying at the Radisson Blu Yas Island.
The staff, is grateful to serve whether they were tipped or not. When they are tipped—which they are well deserving--they are even more grateful.
