“Still the Best in Abu Dhabi”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

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.
Strengths:
+ 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.
Recommendations:
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.

Room Tip: Avoid the 8th floor (top floor) in the summer months. Even with air conditioning, it just seems hot...

From the moment you reach the lobby, the receptionists are willing to help, to assist, to do everything to make you feel you are on vacation, that you will have nothing else to do than ... have a good time.
Everyday the room is clean and tidy, water, coffee and stuff are replenished and if you are planning a long stay, even free laundry is provided in many cases.
Overall, We are considering it among the best hotel services we ever experienced and on very competitive prices.

Room Tip: Request a room with sea view: these rooms have a balcony and unlimited view to Arabic gulf.

Stayed in this hotel..good for quiet and calm stay. Location is the only issue as it is not near the city center nor any shopping outlets. We need to get into taxis or have own car if we need to stay in this hotel.

I spent 3 nites at this hotel for work. The rooms are big and spacious and the pool looked very posh and inviting. Unfortunately I did not bring my swimsuit and the AUH heat was just too much to bear. I did see several singles, couples and families having loads of fun so I guess the pool must be good for kids big and small.

Breakfast was a good spread of fruits, juices, nuts , breads pasteries fresh from the kitchen oven. There was good spread of local and international delights from hummus to your scrambled eggs. My colleague tried the Moroccan Green Tea ( Mint and spices in green tea) and there was a good range of Tea or Coffee if you had time for a leisurely breakfast before work !

There is a SPA which I did not try out and some other restaurants too.

Rooms are big and tastefully decorated and well maintained by housekeeping ( no smelly sheets here for sure) .. it is not F1 season but I can see the F1 Marina Tracks from my hotel window. A good range of toiletries and plenty of complimentary drinking water was a real plus ! The hotel is located in a bunch of hotels ( at least 5 other properties like Rotana and Crowne just next door). Staff followed hotel industry protocol and as a lone female traveller was assigned a room near the lifts and not is secluded corner of hotel.

There is an Ikea nearby and a local Al Raha Mall ( 5-10mins by taxi) which I didnt visit if you need to stock some snacks and drinks.

Overall service was great, staff were friendly and pleasant.

Good to be able to charge my mobilephone for FREE at reception as I left my handphone charger at home.

Room Tip: Airport limo taxi to hotel costs AED45 Mall within 10mins taxi ride Breakfast is worth taking Po...

My wife and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary at the hotel and the management and staff made it a truly memorable experience. We stayed in Sept 2012.

I made the booking and arrangements directly with the hotel reservations and from the outset the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I let the reservations staff know from the outset that this was our anniversary and they really went out of their way to make it a memorable experience. We booked into a premium suite which, when we arrived had been decked out in rose petals, flowers and decorations. I wanted the destination to be a surprise for my wife and the hotel limo driver was awesome in playing along, taking a roundabout route so my wife had no idea until we rolled up at the hotel foyer.

The hotel buffet was delicious with the roast duck being a particularly delectable highlight. We had dinner in the hotel's Italian restaurant but were quite disappointed in the service (I addressed this with the hotel management later and it was satisfactorily handled).

My wife was treated to a Spa treatment which she thoroughly enjoyed, she highly recommends this Spa.

Check in and check out were smooth and efficient, the staff friendly and helpful all of which made our experience a memorable one.

For a relaxing short getaway we can highly recommend this hotel.
