Reviewed 28 April 2014

First room was very noisy because of air condition system on the ground. So we asked to be changed. Second room was better. It is a bit over priced for the quality of room that you get. i guess you pay for the name association to shangri-la.

And still a great hotel. Went in April, over Easter holidays, was hot but good that you have the beach and the pool to chose from. Lovely beach, lovely rooms and great value when you stay in a club room and use the club lounge. Staff are very helpful and location is great. Great for a chill out holiday. Will def go back for a third time!!!

This is the third year we have stayed at the Traders and the service and hotel is still as good as ever. The service across all aspects of the hotel was excellent. The service on the beach is some of the best I have experienced with the sun loungers being as comfy as the beds in the room. Cool boxes are provided on the beach and replenished as and when required. As with previous years we upgraded to the exec rooms which gives you access to the exec lounge where you can have breakfast and soft drinks are available throughout the day. In the evening there are hot and cold snacks as well as wine and spirits. There are plenty of places to eat, with the hotel serving burgers and pizza and has BBQ nights including one for families. There is then the souk between the Traders hotel and the Shangri La with several different restaurants/shops and then more formal dining at the Shangri La. The souk is 5 mins walk from the hotel and is well lit. The outdoor bar at the hotel serves drinks until 11pm and then you have to order from the lobby bar which closes around 1am, but drinks can still be drunk outdoors. We travelled to Dubai for the day catching a cab from the hotel direct to Dubai Mall (about 1 1/2 hrs) which was approximately £50 each way, well worth it for a day out. If you want a quicker trip to the malls then it's around 20 mins to downtown Abu Dhabi. Overall another great stay with excellent value for money.

This hotel has a serious noise problem. Rooms between 610 and 620, 510 and 520 and so on all floors is impossible to sleep.

The office building next door has air conditioning machines installed right next to the windows of this part of the hotel and it is impossible to sleep because they make a lot of noise.

It's a shame that such a nice hotel has this problem so great

Room Tip: Not in rooms in the side 610-620

Stayed at Traders for the 3rd year in a row over Easter and our stay was as good as ever. Excellent service all round, whether it was at reception, in the restaurant or on the beach. The beach loungers are like beds, very comfy with 3 beach towels per person and a coolbox for water, which is free and you can top up as many times as you want during the day, a great value added extra.
We upgrade to the Exec rooms which are well worth it, as it gives you breakfast and access to the exec lounge from 6-8 daily, which provides hot and cold snacks and drinks including soft drinks, juice, wine and spirits. It's a great place to relax after a day on the beach or sightseeing.
Our room was great, we had a Traders Club Deluxe which gives you 48 sq metres so loads of space bearing in mind 3 of us went (all girls) and even with the amount of stuff we take there was still load of room! Plus a great bathroom, with large shower and all the usual amenities.
The only slight disappointment is that there isn't an a la carte restaurant in the hotel anymore. The restaurant is more casual serving pizza and burgers, although the quality of the food is great and I have no complaints about it. If you do want a la carte then the souk is 5 mins walk from the hotel down a pleasant pathway along the beach, all of it fully lit and very safe, and this has various options including Italian, Japanese, South African and Lebanese. Or the Shangri La hotel is another 5 mins walk on the other side of the souk and, as Traders is part of the Shangri La chain, you can easily access.
All in all another great stay and excellent value for money.

Thank you very much for staying with us once again and for taking the time to post your review and observations through Trip Advisor, MazC23. I am extremely pleased to learn that you had a great time while enjoying our services and facilities all around. You definitely made a great choice to upgrade to a Traders Club Room on this occasion. The buzzing and vibrant social experience of the Traders Club Lounge particularly in the evening makes it the perfect happening spot for travellers like yourselves. On the other hand I would like to inform you that Afya Restaurant and Beach lounge is indeed serving a La carte menu in addition to daily Theme nights when a selection of hot and cold dishes is served with live cooking stations. It is indeed my pleasure to share your positive feedback to the entire team for making your Easter holiday a memorable one. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Best regards,

Cant go wrong with it really. Great location next to the souq and Shangri La complex.

Rooms are good as long as you dont get the ones overlooking the lobby atrium. Strange idea that.

Good beach and outdoor areas.

Great for exploring Abu Dhabi and amazing for the price.

The restaurant breakfast is not good though. Infact, pretty rank but arent most non-pork offerings!

This is our go to hotel every time we visit Abu Dhabi, location is great, service here is the best, and the value for what you get is not seen anywhere else. Getting the upgrade to club room is always worth it, And try booking on the traders website itself, as you can sometimes get better deals.

Room Tip: corner room is nice and spacious
