We stayed at the Fairmont Gold Level on a couple of occasions with our family. The service is superb, Paul was always very helpful, the rooms are all very stylish and spacious, and the free evening drinks very welcome.
The pool is heated and therefore good all year round, I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Take a room with the Grand mosque view and near to the spa.

For my husband's birthday in March, we stayed at the fabulous Fairmont in Abu Dhabi. We were fortunate to be assigned an 8th floor Gold room, and golden it was... the most beautiful hotel suite we've enjoyed in 25 years of living globally. Three spacious rooms (dining area, living room and master bedroom suite) with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the stunning Grand Mosque. At night, it was just gorgeous. The room service food was outstanding, and the overall quality of the hotel beyond measure. Thank you Fairmont, for all the tasty treats and the incredible stay. We simply loved every minute of it.

Room Tip: Stay on the 8th or 9th floor in a Gold room overlooking the mosque if you possibly can. You will be...

From arrival to departure our 2 week holiday was perfect. We did stay in a Gold Room which was a delight even after reading all of the positive reviews. We were lucky to have a wonderful view and everything in the room was very comfortable indeed.
The hotel staff from the pool side to the non Gold Level staff were fantastic and could not be faulted however a special mention to the Gold Level staff is a must - we have never received some amazing service and the team in our experience have not been topped by any other hotel in the world which is one of the main reasons I have reviewed this as 5 star. The breakfast was lovely, afternoon tea was plentiful and the evening canapés and drinks were thoroughly enjoyed. Some people in my view took advantage of the canapés and the staff are not always treated how I would treat another human being yet this didn't seem to phase them and their professionalism never wavered.
The food and drink in the hotel is fantastic. We have eaten in a number of MPW's however like everything about this hotel the MPW was the best we have experienced, so much so we went there 3 times! Frankies provided a more relaxed but equally enjoyable evening and the Lebanese was also a high quality evening meal. The outside bars are very relaxing and the drink options were excellent (we have been to Dubai before and the drink options were limited).
There are 3 5 star hotels nearby and as we were leaving we were told that a little boat would be operating between the hotels to give guests even more choice which I think is a great idea and something we will be using when we return....which we absolutely will.
Thank you to everyone for making our holiday so special. We hope to see you soon.

I'd stay here for the pool alone but in fact it's hard to pick one thing because absolutely everything about this hotel is pretty perfect. The pool is long and swimming lengths is great but it also has a lovely swim up bar, kids areas (some shaded) and lots of sun beds between the pool and beach area. There's volleyball, kids play areas, table tennis and beach football. The service is excellent with bottles of water and platters of fruit served to guests free gratis, a nice touch. A good gym, unusually with a private one reserved for ladies only! But main one open to all and helpful Patrick there to sort you out. The incredibly friendly and helpful service, nothing seems to be too much trouble and there are plenty of staff so no waiting. Three restaurants, Cuisceneone serving till 1130 and the buffet is really good. Breakfast is as you would expect in a good hotel with a nice outdoor area. (Why the hedge, could have great views)
A must have is a room with a view over the water towards the Mosque. Enjoy the waterside stroll along the river past Traders Hotel and into a souk. Very safe and great after dinner.
The bed, breakfast and evening meal included deal was great value and made this a very reasonable holiday. Overall a great place to chill!

Room Tip: Rooms on water/pool side well worth the extre.
