The hotel is very good but as others have said it is 20 to 25 minutes from downtown Abu Dhabi, so if you need to be downtown this place is not for you. If you are going there to enjoy the sun and tranquility and have a relaxing holiday, it is perfect. There is a shuttle bus that takes you to the mosque and to the corniche and marina mall and various other places and if you do not want to wait for the bus to come back you can catch a taxi, they are available without problem and have a meter, perfectly safe and they are very polite and helpful. When we arrived at the hotel the lady that handled our reservation asked us if we wanted to upgrade our room to the 8 floor, which came with free breakfast, soft drinks all day and alcoholic beverages and canapes from 6 to 8. The spread they have is much more than canapes, they have three different kinds of hot meals, plus puddings, cheese, sandwiches and various other things. It is on the 9 floor and it is really very convenient and pleasent. The beach is much better than what we expected, it is kept so clean plus the sea is beautiful (it is a canal, it is not open sea) The water is very salty and in the evenings the tide comes up and it is great. There is a problem with the jet skis, they come far too near the buoys that the hotel has, something should be done to stop them from going so near the allocated section for swimming. It is not the hotel's fault, but perhaps they should think of putting a double line of buoys or complaining to the authorities. You do not want to wait for an accident before something is done. I found it quite stressful to have to worry about the jetskis and their mad maouvers.
The bedrooms are great and the bathrooms have everything you need. The breakfast is very good with many choices and freshly squeezed juices. All in all we liked this hotel a lot, lovely and helpful staff, great weather and it is a perfect break.
