The room is quite spacious, beach and pool facilities are amazing - perfect for a gateway. But far from the city... Close by you will find a souq called qaryat al berri; you can have dinner there overlooking the marina.

My husband, two year old son and I stayed at this wonderful hotel in November 2012.
This is the second time that we were staying at the Fairmont. However I never got around to writing a review.
We absolutely love this hotel and it's brilliant team of staff. I have never stayed at a hotel where the staff are so friendly, professional and dedicated. When we asked our little son where he would like to go on holiday , without thinking he said" I want to go to my Abu Dhabi hotel!"
I would like to say a big thank you to Coco ( breakfast buffet and restaurant), Tendai from housekeeping and the pool team. You guys have made our stay memorable.
We hope that we can come back soon! And please open up a Fairmont in Doha! They are in need of a fabulous hotel like yours.

My wife and I spent a night at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr recently.

The hotel is spectacular and has a brilliant view of the Grand Mosque. The grounds are lovely.

The breakfast is the best I have ever had. Brilliant buffet and an absolute must. They also have a good steak house.

There's really nothing bad to say about this hotel.

Needless to say, the service is efficient and friendly.

If you are staying in Abu Dhabi for a short time, stay here. Perfect for short transit trips when you need to be near the airport.

One of the new Abu Dhabi hotels where the staff are still trying hard to please. Whilst not on the main shoreline (there is a beach) or in the centre of town it is well placed for restaurants etc. Great position if you need the airport and the odd trip to Dubai.

This is a proper grand 5-star hotel. Large rooms, high quality fittings and linens, nice bathroom and wet room, responsive climate system, fantastic views and very well kept grounds. Dinning was also excellent. I ate at the lebanese restaurant and the buffet one, the steak restaurant needs booking so does the italian one. Service was also very good, capable and honestly polite. The location of the hotel warrants no unexpected delays to the places I was mostly interested going to the exhibition center and the airport. I kept last the best feature which in my view was the pool. It was a cold time of the year (for AD standards) so it was mildly heated. Very clean water, no smell of chemicals, very large, nice view to the sea and the grand mosque opposite, interesting design. All in all Fairmont is very recommendable.
