Stayed for 5 nights at end of May / start of June and was very impressed.
Hotel is very close to the airport and the shuttle to the Marina, Ferrari World and the Waterpark is great (see my other reviews). We actually booked 5 nights at Yas and 3 nights downtown at the No1 ranked hotel, and we actually preffered the Yas. The rooms are huge, the service is great and there is a really nice relaxed feeling to the hotel.
We only used the Adults only pool and found all the staff and the facilities to be fantastic. The complimentary water and cold towels was a nice touch and much appreciated in the heat.
We ate in both the Italian and the Indian and had two good meals. The buffet breakfast had plently of choice. We also ordered room service one night, which was also very good and reasonably priced.
The skylite lounge is amazing, and we were pleased to see we made it just in time before it closes for summer as this was one of the reasons we picked the hotel.
We had a couple of issues when staying. We had emailed ahead to say we would be arriving early morning. The room was not ready on arrival which was fair enough, they took our number and said they would let us know as soon as it was ready. We headed up to the pool to wait, but as you can imagine after travelling overnight we were very keen to get some rest. No one called us to let us know the room was ready and we found out by going to reception to ask. I suppose if the hotel is busy this can be overlooked.
The second issue was the noise from the nightclub which must have been right below our room. However, we we moved to a higher floor the following day and the staff handled this wonderfully and therefore I have still given the hotel 5 stars.
If you are planning to visit the waterpark and Ferrari world, or are looking for a relaxing holiday with a interesting hotel then this is the place to stay!
