“Great short stay”
Reviewed 10 September 2010

We had booked a room on a credit card promotion during Ramadan 2010. For what we paid for - it was definitely great value as it included breakfast and a 30-min massage at their fitness center. The room's your usual 32sqm-ish and new, and I love the vibrant orange decor. Food was not an issue during the day (Ramadan) as their Choices restaurant is open. If you want to eat out for dinner, It's a bit of a drive to the city center but manageable.

Highlight of my stay were the treatments at Bodylines - I always try to fit in a massage or two at hotels if possible. Ask for Jennifer, she's great and knows her stuff. There's also a jacuzzi, steam room and sauna.

We had a bit of a problem during check-in, but the staff were generally friendly and helpful throughout our stay.

I've spent one week in Abu Dhabi and stayed in Rotana Hotel on Yas Island. It is new hotel, they have Formula 1 race track just accross the road, Ferrari park - 5 min. walking from hotel, Golf Course near by; and all this just 20 min. away from Abu Dhabi city centre and 10 min from airport!
It was my first experience with Rotana in Yas Island, my stay was really great, starting from arrival and till departure. Staff in the hotel is very friendly and professional, they have amazing Blue Grill steak house and Y-Bar. food in the restaurants was excellent.
Nice pool and SPA as well. It ws a very nice week in Abu Dhabi. Thanks to Rotana and their staff!!! I definitely will recommend Yas Rotana to my friends and during my next trip to Abu Dhabi will stay only there!!!

This is a new nice hotel, very modern and clean with High tech in the rooms.
I was allocated a Junior suite very High tech that met all my expectations.
This is a nice Rotana Hotel whith very nice restaurants and Bars, where you can forget you are in the middle of nowhere.
The location in the Yas Island is very curious. There is a complex of 7 hotels of Rotana, IHG and Rezidor plus the Yas Hotel.
The hotel has no fault on m opinion and you can get a pretty good deal if you go off season F1 which was our case.
Very close to Abu Dhabi and the airport.We have already booked for the winter.
The staff very friendly and smiling you can feel they attend you from the heart.

I booked this hotel through LateRooms.com at a very good price as I was going for the F1 Grand Prix. Although I got an immediate confirmation from LateRooms.com, the hotel realised they had made a mistake with the rate and refused to honour my booking. I received a call from the hotel accepting that there had been an error, but refusing to honour the booking even though they had availability in other room types. Most of my messages have been ignored since, the booking has been cancelled and LateRooms.com have taken the hotel off their website for their unfair behaviour and misrepresentations.

Just to warn everyone who wants to stay in Yas Island Rotana, to ensure to record all the conversations that you will be having with the staffs. Cos everything that they have committed with you will be changed. You will just learn everything once you have received the bill and they will not reverse the bill that they have charged you with.

My daughter and I used this as an overnight stop between flights. Although it is almost within sight of the airport, it was actually a 20-minute taxi trip, but not expensive (550 Dirhams there, 350 back). The hotel backs onto the Yas Marina F1 track, and is adjacent to the Centro, Crowne Plaza, Staybridge and a couple of other hotels. We had a bed-and-breakfast weekend deal through the hotel's website, so the package was very good value for Abu Dhabi, which is an expensive city for accommodation. The location, as an airport stopover, was suggested to me by a local as there are highways all the way, so no delays. I would not use this as a base for exploring Abu Dhabi, however, as it is a bit too remote from the city itself.

Our room was spacious and nicely appointed, with reading lights for each bed, a safe, mini-bar, hairdryer, etc. The beds were very comfortable and the curtains were the heavy, block-out type. Our wakeup call was delivered right on time by a friendly receptionist, and our breakfast was a big Middle-Eastern spread with plenty of options, hot and cold, and with chefs ready to make fresh-to-order. The restaurant looks out over the swimming pool, beyond which is the Formula 1 track. I imagine this hotel would be noisy during the F1, but that's unlikely to bother F1 fans and the track is within walking distance so would be great if you're there for the GP.

Reception staff, concierge and restaurant and cafe staff were all excellent and very helpful. I would stay here again.

Stayed unexpectedly with hundreds of other people when delayed due to the volcanic ash closing UK airspace. This undoubtedly 'load tested' the hotel so all comments should be read in that context.

Staff were very friendly,usually smiling and obviously were working very hard to cope with the unexpected demands.

Free Wi-Fi was a huge plus and it is to the credit of the hotel that it recognises that this is how things should be ...a pity others are slow to realise this

Lovely gym . eating venues and swiming pool, pleasant bar, comfortable rooms

Despite ' do not disturb' light being on I was disturbed so staff could ' check the mini bar' I allowed this but with a smile pointed out the light - yet the same thing happened the next day. I think by the same person

Was an annoying tendency in Choices restaurant to ask guests to sign blank forms with details being filled in later........sorry but this shouldnt happen.

Company paid most of the bill with me responsible for extras - when checking there were two meals and one alcoholic drink added which I had not taken.........this took 30 minutes to resolve with the hotel recognising the mistake.
