We loved this hotel, and it was the highlight of our trip to Abu Dhabi !!! We booked 7 nights in a hotel in the city and decided to book the Yas for 1 night, and we received a great rate which included Friday Brunch next day with 5pm checkout ! We just left all our luggage in the hotel we were staying at and took and overnight bag to stay at the Yas. When we started getting near, we saw from afar that the hotel is like no other. I love it at night when the building lights up all colours and the waterfalls in front of the hotel. We arrived to a room viewing the marina and circuit which we were delighted about. The rooms had all mod cons, and a seating area also which is helpful. We then went downstairs to the cafe and decided to have afternoon tea and some wine. The girls in the cafe were soooo nice and could not do enought for us. There was four different kinds of AT, my friend decided on the Arabic one, and I stuck with Hyde Park (both 110AED) around £22 each which is a great price. We ate it outside which is a novelty for us coming from Scotland, so lovely to relax in the shade. We did not finish it all but the girl serving us gave us a cute wee box with the rest to take to our room. We changed around 6.30pm and headed to the Skylight bar where we had a few cocktails and a few chats to the girls up there and also to the manager, Perera who made us feel so welcome, asking where we were from and were we liking our trip to Abu Dhabi. I have to say every single person we came across in this hotel was lovely. There was racing going on in the evening but this just added to the atmosphere, as with the planes, they did not keep us from sleeping. The next day we had a walk around the Marina, and bought some gifts at the ferrari shop in the hotel, then we went for Friday brunch around 12.30, which included all you can eat and unlimited pink champagne !! As we walked to Origins where they have the Friday Brunch we saw just outside a table with.........2 Chocolate Fountains, macaroons, home made chocolates, marshmallows, fruit and cupcakes !!! OMG I thought I had died and went to heaven !! Must keep some space for them. We had small portions of salad, prawns, mussels, duck rolls etc. then we went onto have small amounts from the Italian, Indian, and Fish stations before heading to the sweet dishes (all 45 of them!). Then we finished with a few things from the chocolate fountain table. The champagne IS very much so unlimited, the girls were topping up all the time. Well worth the 350AED they charge for this. All too soon is was 5pm and time for us to check out, and would you know, one of the reception chaps asked what part of Scotland we were from??? We cannot wait until the next time we visit the Yas Vicroy, we had more hospitality here in 2 days than we did from the hotel we were staying at in AD for the 7 ngihts !!! keep up the good work, you are all brilliant at what you do.
