After a long flight I arrived at the hotel mid morning. Staff let me check in early and let me have a late check out (brilliant thank you).
Personalised greeting on the TV when you walk in is a nice touch.
There is a safe in the room to store your belongings.
There were two free bottles of water in the room when I arrived, and room service put two new bottles in every day! Was also offered free water at the beach. Fantastic!
The lifts were super fast and you don't have to wait long at all.
Hotel guests also have free use of the computers/internet (there are three of them if I recall). Was handy to check in for my flight and print my boarding pass.
Free shuttle bus to most of the major attractions in Abu Dhabi is great (although the timings were limited; could do with a few more bus services throughout the day).
My room was facing the pool. There was not a lot of noise from the pool at all but there was a constant low level noise throughout the day/night (came from outside the room and sounded like a pump or air conditioner going 24/7). I slept with ear plugs most nights but I am a light sleeper. It wasn't bad enough to ask the hotel to change rooms and I just put up with it. This was perhaps the only negative aspect I came across the whole time I stayed here.
The breakfast was fantastic (very good spread and variety of food). Wish they had freshly cooked pancakes as the egg omelette got a bit boring after a few days. Other meal options were fairly average (e.g the themed nights for dinner). Would recommend breakfast at the hotel and have your other meals elsewhere.
All in all I had a very pleasant stay and would definitely return.
