We had a really nice overnight stay here. Rooms were very comfortable. The en suite bathrooms are huge and included all toiletries including toothbrushes!
The staff were very helpful both in the restaurants and the club lounge. The pool area is small but you are very well looked after, the lifeguard even hands out botteld water in cool boxes along with your towels.
We will definately be back to Traders in the near future.

The hotel itself is part of the Shangri La chain and separated from the Shangri La by a shopping centre which is clearly struggling. I have stayed in this hotel a few times and the bars/ restaurants I have used before in the centre have now closed. There are still a few available but they are also finding life a bit tough.

The rooms in the hotel are great, but the hotel has clearly reduced its staffing numbers so expect to wait at reception. The bar in the hotel is behind reception and not welcoming at all. the restaurant in the hotel is actually rather disappointing and at best two star. I would recommend eating elsewhere.

So the rooms are great, the beach by the hotel is also great, but otherwise there are better places in better locations now that the shopping centre is slowly closing.

I stayed at this hotel for nearly a month. The people working there are the real bright spot of Traders. Everyone I encountered was very professional, friendly, and helpful. I have traveled to many hotels for business in the US as well as Internationally. Even though Traders is rated 4 stars, the people make a 5 star experience.

Stayed for 2 nights on our way back from the Far East, in a Traders Club room. Previous experiences in Abu Dhabi were at Yas Viceroy & Qsar al Sarab in the Liwa Desert. Although we have previously stayed in Shangri-la hotels, this was our first stay in a Traders hotel & we very very pleasantly surprised. I would say that the standards here, I.e. cleanliness, service, decor, room quality, beds, bathrooms, would certainly surpass that of many 5* hotels. But the unique selling point of this hotel is intangible, it is the reason that people return again & again to a hotel rather than trying others, and it is the way it makes you feel. The decor & layout of all areas of the hotel are stylish & spacious yet welcoming & comfortable. The staff - they are efficient & professional but not pompous or detached, friendly & welcoming but not over familiar, the balance is there. In fact we enjoyed the whole experience so much that we have already booked to return, to, this time for a stopover, but as a dedicated trip.
The only "room for improvement" tip I can think of is: to construct some restrooms near the beach area or at least separate from the main reception.

Room Tip: Club room with canal view. Large room, huge bathroom with large walkin shower and separate bath.

This hotel is a delight to stay in. Everything is clean, neat, new and modern. The Traders Club rooms are enormous including a very large bathroom with separate bath and shower cubicles. The bed is enormous - a super king which was amazingly comfortable. Complimentary bottles of water are left for the room and are also provided in a thoughtful cool box when using the beach or pool. As it is currently the winter season, the hotel is pretty much for business guests only which made the location even more relaxing than normal.

Having use of the Traders Club lounge provides a fantastic, faultless breakfast and really lovely canapés and drinks in the evening. The staff in the lounge are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They also made arrangements for us to use the complimentary bus service into the centre of Abu Dhabi and for a visit to the Grand Mosque.

We rarely take beach holidays due to work commitments so it has been fantastic to finally take a true vacation after nine years. We are so pleased with the hotel as it was important to us to have a slow, relaxing holiday to unwind and recharge. Some reviews say it's a shame that the location is distant from the main centre, but to be honest, a cheap taxi ride or a free bus (which takes about 45 minutes) and you are in the town. Unless you intend to do some serious shopping, to be fair the centre of Abu Dhabi doesn't lend itself to any actual sight-seeing.

If you are simply looking for sun, sea, good food and relaxation then this would be the ideal hotel stay. The only irritation is that the bay does have a number of sea-do users - jet skis and the like. This can be quite tiresome as they seem to go round in packs and just whizz up and down. Not sure if the hotels along the strip could get them to move on or disappear altogether - or perhaps even slow down as some of them appear to go at least 40 miles an hour. There is a boomed off area in front of the beach to swim, but the noise can be somewhat tiresome and can last for a couple of hours.

Room Tip: If you get a chance, visit the Grand Mosque in the afternoon. Remember to check dress code e.g. long...

The "Traders hotel" Abu Dhabi is a great hotel sharing it boundary with the Shangri la hotel. The food and service are both good. This hotel has one of the best executive club in Abu dhabi which is on the same floor as the club rooms which seems to be quite rare in hotels in Abu Dhabi.

This hotel has a small private beach and a swimming pool .

The only disadvantage with this hotel is that it is away from the central part of Abu Dhabi .

We stayed here for two nights in January 2013. Firstly the pickup from the airport was seamless and we were whisked away to the hotel. Our plane was delayed and we arrived a few hours later than expected. The check in was perfect (thank you Aung) and we had an Executive Suite (so large) with Club Lounge privileges. We were so hungry but were still able to get room service which was delicious. At the Club Lounge the following morning we were greeted like long lost friends as they were concerned we were so late the night before. The breakfast was more than sufficient and had more than enough food and variety. We ate at the restaurant for our second night and the food was delicious. Our waiter was also very attentive and provided great service. Customer service is exemplary at Traders, nothing is too much trouble. Make sure you fill out the "delight" cards to thank those who provide exceptional service.
