Stayed at the Traders Hotel by Shangri La Qaryat al-Beri for 2 nights in August, it was, by far, the best hotel I have stayed at in the UAE; the hotel surpasses many five star hotels.
Our Premier Club room was large and had a comfortable balcony. All expected amenities were present: newspapers, minibar, bathrobes etc. The room was accommodating and big enough for three adults. The view from the room was of the beach and sea.
The beach had no changing facilities, but was quiet and empty when we visited (perhaps due to the high temperatures of August). The hotel also had nice gardens which made for a nice stroll.
The Beach was clean and the life guards were friendly and attentive.
The Club lounge offered a nice variety of evening canapés, though the afternoon tea was slightly disappointing; offerings were small and the taste was just okay. However, this did not take away from the overall hotel experience. Breakfast at Afya was extensive and delicious; I can happily recommend it to anyone.
The staff were polite and attentive throughout our stay. The hotel also provides a free shuttle to Abu Dhabi centre as well as a complementary shuttle to the Souk Qaryat al Beri at the neighbouring Shangri La.
Overall, a fantastic stay and I would definitely consider staying here again if I visited Abu Dhabi again.
