Having stayed here before had expectation of similar good experience !!! wrong, something has changed and its not for the better. Slow check in / out poor luggage service, food both average quality and slow, slow service, try to get a drink when seated on the beach, you will see the sunrise first !
Traders was always a good venue, now looking elsewhere as the quality has dropped to a point where this is no longer a viable option.

Room Tip: Check and ensure lights, bulbs are working daily as getting someone to replace them is akin to getti...

Totally agree with the positive reviews.... This hotel is an excellent choice, even in a standard room. Service impeccable, restaurant staff could not have been more helpful & eager to make your experience better. Eg. They got to know my preferences & when my waiter was on his off day he ensured his colleagues & the chef took care of me. The housekeeper too went the extra mile.
The comfy sunbeds are immediately prepped for you with 3 thick towels arranged for maximum comfort, and a mini cooler box with iced water - wonderful. The beach tents with carpets & loungers are so luxurious, loved them. On the beach there's even a selection of reading material if you need it. The beach is constantly tidied by the lifeguards. The pool area isn't huge but has a nice bar & huge lounging areas.
Breakfast was superb, enormous selection for all tastes - fresh baked loaves, freshly squeezed juices, lots of fresh fruit, egg /omelette station, gorgeous granola.
The security guards are always there & discreet. It is safe to stroll along the walkways between the hotels. Wander down to the little souk 8 mins away by the Shangri La hotel, with various restaurants, a Starbucks, shops and good little supermarket.
The shuttle service is really handy, but the taxis are very reasonable so easy to get around.
Of the Malls I far preferred the huge Marina Mall where the choice is enormous, every pocket catered for, and there's also an enormous Carrefour supermarket.

Tip: do buy dates, they are justifiably proud of them - had no idea there were several different types too. Excellent for presents - my friends were delighted & surprised how much nicer they were compared to what we buy in UK.

If you go nowhere else, you must visit the Grand Mosque.

It was a short vacation but I enjoyed it. Even I confronted some small issues but always finding who care and try to solve it and to ameliorate the service.
For sure i will be back as soon as possible.

Great Location. Good service. Loved the decor of the place. Due to the location of the Souk next door we actually didn't bother stepping out and into the city for the two nights we were there.

The offer for the free upgrade for Golden Circle members was brilliant which gave us better rooms and access to the Traders Lounge which had free snacks and drinks between 6 - 8. It did get quite crowded.

My friends had a bit of an issue with the food on offer but that definitely does not change our review of the fun we had on the trip!

We've stayed at Traders Abu Dhabi the last couple of times we have visited Abu Dhabi and will book there again for our next trip.

The location is one of my favourite things about the hotel. It has its own private beach with great views of the Grand Mosque at sunset. It is about 15-20 mins drive to downtown Abu Dhabi, Yas Island and the airport. The hotel is right next door to the actual Shangri-La hotel meaning that its 5 star facilities, beach and restaurants are readily available. The Qaryat Al Beri souq is also next door and has plenty of shops and restaurants.

Other pros - the rooms are clean and well furnished and the bar is cheap! The staff were also kind enough to bring me a birthday cake!
