I've always lusted after going and staying at Yas Island Viceroy, ever since I went to the F1 here in the UAE. It just looks amazing and its good looks deliver on their promise with what I can only describe as a truly wonderful, thoroughly fantastic stay. We were greeted on arrival by very pleasant door staff who very quickly worked out who we were and addressed us by name - a lovely personal touch which was indicative to every single member of staff we met at the hotel from the front desk to the cleaning staff and then onto the maitre d and the wonderful 'Gilbert' at Nautilius.
A hotel is only as good as its staff and the Viceroy has clearly invested a lot of effort in training its staff really well. Everyone made my husband and I feel welcome, they could literally not have done enough for us whilst not being so smarmy or intrusive.
The rooms at this hotel are delightful - we had a fantastic view of the marina and the F1 circuit. The room itself was huge - with a beautiful bathroom, separate shower and a sofa. My partner and I felt so comfortable it was difficult to leave and go to use the other facilities.
The 'family pool' is tiny and honestly not the best part of this hotel - although it is still beautiful. The 'quiet pool' was much better - more space to swim and a lovely view. The gym is state of the art, and has culturally sensitive training areas.
We only tried one restaurant - Nautilius - the seafood and meat restaurant. The staff here were flawless - we thoroughly enjoyed every single moment of this experience from our bubbly welcome to the beautiful light chocolate mousse to complete a beautiful meal. Our waiter was a chap called Gilbert - a super chap who knew the menu inside out and was able to match our tastes to the perfect recommendation.
I can't recommend this hotel strongly enough - it is fantastic - I just wish I could afford to stay there during the F1.
