We arrived on 23 Dec by night. The reception was very warm and friendly and didn't take long. In fact we were nervous a little bit as our communication with the hotel to have an extra bed was not going well and upon our arrival, the receptionist told us that extra beds are not available. The room was very nice viewing the gulf. The room facilities were modern and good. The guest service was very helpful and responsive for any request. Horizon is the whole day dining restaurant with buffet and Beach Restaurant is for dinner only set menu. Both restaurants are great in food and variety. The only challenge was in Horizon on breakfast. It was to ask for tea/coffee spoons. Every day we had to ask for them and we failed to figure out the reason behind their scarcity. The pool and beach are great places to relax and have the kids enjoying the time. We had only one accident of having our long chair taken away by a hotel attendant while we were in the pool without checking if it was used. Also, when asking for a chair we haven't got anything beyond a wide friendly smile with a promise to bring it back. The pool is very clean and there is a kids playing room where you could leave them under supervision. It was very good and friendly. Eventually we had the extra bed in the last night and was complimentary. The hotel is not far from many activities in down town Abu Dhabi and a walking distance from Marina Mall. In brief, we liked that Christmas holiday in the city and in the hotel.
