“Perfect spot for stopovers”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

very friendly staff especially the concierge desk
nice breakfast buffet with delicious local food
rooms facing water with a perfect view to the mosque
the beach is nice and clean but I wouldn't recommend to swimming in the Khor Maqtaa
rather to take a taxi and drive to the beautiful landscape and beaches on sassiest island

The Fairmont is a gorgeous and well run hotel. The staff is attentive and professional. The rooms are great, but the pool/ beach area is what made this trip so fun. Only downside is poor wifi in the room.

Stunning hotel with very spacious rooms, enormous comfortable beds and bathroom facilities. Make sure you pay the extra for gold membership the afternoon tea, hors-d'oeuvres and free drinks are a must. All staff very accommodating special mention to Benji on reception.

This really is a lovely hotel. Rooms are modern and spacious, beds are really comfortable and the shower is fantastic! My only quibble with this hotel was the fact that free Wi-Fi was not provided. Having two teenagers who are constantly connected to some device to another was a bit of a nuisance especially when you could walk to the Shangri-La and use theirs! Other than that we had a lovely stay, stayed 3 nights but wish I'd stayed at least another. Ate breakfast here, service was efficient and the choice was vast. Easy to get about via taxis which are reasonable, preferred Abu Dhabi to Dubai, not quite so manic here!

Don't look any further than Fairmont Hotel when in Abu Dhabi as your stay will be an experience you will never forget for the rest of your life.

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...
