Overall experience was great, i would suggest you go for a traders club room, the room is big and the bathroom as well. I just hipe they have a bigger lounge for the traders club guests and if they could adjust or extend the happy hour.

Just had one problem with the receptionist declining my simple
Request to place the things I brought (flowers&cake) in our assigned room, i was planning to surprise my fiance 'coz we're celebrating our anniversary, but the request was denied.

But it was still a good experience, will definitely come back to this place. More power!

Room Tip: Booked for a club room

All was excellent and staff very friendly. Nice comfortable rooms, calm beach, nice setup and walking distance to lots of restaurants in same compound.
Be picky about your food in Afya as it is below average.

This was our final stopover on our way back to the UK after visiting our daughter in Sydney. It was truly a perfect end to our trip. Although the hotel is a distance from the city, if you just want to relax you could not choose a better hotel. There is a courtesy bus which does 4 trips a day into the city which is a real bonus, although taxi fares are not extortionate. We did try using the local bus (No. 32) but would not advise as it took about one and a half hours to get from Marina Mall. It is very close to the Mosque which is a must see and can actually be seen in the distance from the hotel. We dined at the hotel, at the BBQ evening which was very good. We also used the Lebanese restaurant in the souk,(not associated with the hotel) however, be aware that a glass of white wine in this restaurant costs £9 a glass! Drinks at the Traders were sensibly priced and quality of food was excellent, so would advise to eat in!

Room Tip: We had room 512 (don't all rush at once). This had one of the best views we have ever had in an...

We stayed in the hotel for a night. I had booked the hotel well in advance and had asked for a beach-view room preferably. At the reception, we were told that the beach-view room is not available but our room was upgraded to a Deluxe room. We would have loved to have a beach-view room but no worries there. Reception was good except for the fact that nobody offered us to carry our luggage to the room. We would have anyways carried the luggage ourselves but it's a basic etiquette to offer.

Room was great, very spacious, clean with a very well fitted bathroom. Lobby was also very well maintained with great decor. Sleep quality was good owing to a very comfy bed. Overall, great experience in terms of room quality.

There were a couple of things because of which I took away 2 stars from my rating.
1 - When we read the hotel description, everywhere it said that this one has a private beach. We got the impression that it would be a sea beach with proper waves and everything. And that was the main reason why we booked it. We were surprised to see that it was actually a creek view without any waves, just still water. It was a good view too but our expectations were way different because of the description we read and were taken aback by this.
2 - Service at the restaurant Afaya was very slow and mediocre. At breakfast time, we saw at least 5-6 tables which had leftover plates lying for long after the guests had left. And there was hardly any rush at that time. We had our dinner and breakfast there and both the times our order was taken, food served and then nobody came over again to check if we needed anything else. Seats were spread out so we could not even call the waiter(ess) and both the times I had to walk over to the counter to sign for my bills. Hence, I did not pay any tip.

Thank you for sharing your staying experience with us and taking the time to post your feedback through Trip Advisor, Crypticlight. Thank you for your kind compliments on the hotel room and lobby and I am happy to learn that you had a great night sleep. On the regretful note, I am disappointed to hear that the beach area was not up to your expectations. I am also very concerned about the service issues that you encountered at the front desk and restaurant. Your feedback is key to assist us in determining where additional efforts will be directed in order to maintain the standard that you have come to expect from the Traders brand. In the interim, we are looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Best regards,

For cheaper than many 'budget' hotels, this hotel has lovely, rooms, its own private beach, beautiful views, several restaurants to choose from and convenient location. Ideal for a nice family weekend away. I will definitely be back.

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.

We checked into this hotel for the weekend of the Rolling Stones concert in Feb 2014. The distance from the stadium on Yas Island was approx 20 km, but the difference in price justified the distance.

We booked rooms on the executive floor, so we could take advantage of the free breakfast, afternoon snacks and the famous Happy Hour when we were in the hotel. As it turned out, we were out and about rather a lot, so didn't make full use of what was on offer, but it is certainly there to enjoy.

Check-in for the exec floors is at the lounge on the 9th floor, so you can march right in and take the elevator/lift up there to complete the formalities. The rooms are clean, spacious and well appointed, with a tidy bathroom and a rain forest style shower. The bed was comfortable and pillows cozy and warm.

Maybe it was because the hotel was full for the concert, but it seemed that the executive lounge was barely prepared for the guests it had to cope with. The staff seemed slow to react and slightly bewildered as dozens of executive guests waited patiently for their breakfast eggs or clean glasses into which to pour their wine . A few more staff might have been helpful.

We didn't try the hotel's Friday brunch, but next door's Shangri-La Hotel offers a fantastic buffet right on the waterfront. It's just a short walk (or shorter buggy ride) from Traders.

In all, a very comfortable stay ideal for a busy weekend in Abu Dhabi.

Thank you for choosing Traders Hotel on your recent visit to Abu Dhabi, Mark H. I am glad to learn that you had a lovely stay and you find the Traders Club Lounge value proposition a great option. On the other hand, I regret to learn that due to the high occupancy in the hotel your experience at the lounge during the cocktail hours have somehow marred your staying experience with us. Your feedback is key to assist us in determining where additional efforts will be directed in order to maintain the standard that you have come to expect from the Traders brand. Once again, thank you very much for your feedback and despite the unintended setback, we look forward for the opportunity of welcoming you back in the near future. Best regards,
