Stayed at the Traders for 6 nights as part of our holiday in mid September. The staff were very helpful on arrival and we were upgraded free of charge to a superior room which we were not expecting. Room was huge. Very modern, clean and tidy. Bathroom was very modern and exceptionally clean. Shower was very powerful which was great. Beds were very comfy and huge also.
The food in the restaurant was of a very high standard. So much so we ate here 5 nights out of 6. The choice was brilliant. Have to say the salads, steaks and creme brulee (which Im used to having in small ramikins) came in what can only be described as a soup bowl, it was huge!
The hotel bar does a happy hour from 6-8 which we used most evening.
Staff were always courteous and couldnt do enough for you. Service was 10/10!
The hotels private beach is great. They come round with towels and ice boxes with water and ice flannels which is always welcome. The creek is a lovely temperature.
Hotel pool is also very good but just a shame it isnt facing the sea. Its at the back of the hotel.
The Traders is part of the Shangri La complex so you can get an abra which takes you along the canals that form part of the hotel complex. They can take you to the souks and the actual Shangri La hotel at the far end from the Traders. We used them twice and are free.
The hotel is a little bit out of the city but they have a free bus service which can take you into the city at certain times of the day. Taxis are cheap also. To get to the city centre would take around 20 mins.
We also did a couple of trips out. One to Ferrari World which we booked ourselves and one to the Yas Marina Circuit through a local tour operator which we got a brochure for from the conceirge at the hotel. Emirates Tours I think they were called. I would suggest not using this service as you could book it yourself online and get a taxi and save yourself a minimum of 240AED per couple! We felt ripped off. Not worth the money!
All in all a wonderful hotel. Would without doubt stay here again when in Abu Dhabi.
Keep up the exceptional standards. :0)
