I honestly cannot describe my experience at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr and Abu Dhabi.

Upon arrival, was greeted very well by front of house, they took up our requests as priority.

Received a gold floor view room. Breath taking, that's all I can say.

In general with the service received from the hotel staff, excellent all round, Mary the Manager was a star. I wish you all the best! And cannot thank you enough for taking care of my cousins Fatimah and I.
Swimming pool staff, were a pleasure to spend the afternoons with - very helpful.

The good at breakfast was what you would expect at the Fairmont.

Room Service was on point.!
We would have our bottles of water in the fridge, ready. Towels. Our clothes folded away.

Honestly I'd recommend anyone to stay here!

I am definitely going back one day In Sha Allah.

This is a good value for money 36 hour staycation as you get to stay until 6 and it also includes lunch the next day. The room was amazing. Very clean and well designed and comfortable. Facing the 'sea view'. The brunch was okay - I did not rate the food highly compared to others I had been too. Overall I thought it was excellent.

Stayed here as part of our trip to Abu Dhabi & so pleased with our choice. From arrival to departure we were very well looked after. As it is low season the price was simply exceptional. Everyone is so friendly & accommodating. We were upgraded to pool view room which had views of Sheik Saheed Mosque. Room itself was huge, king bed, TV, work desk, ample storage, superb shower facilities, fridge etc. perhaps only thing could not find was USB point. The rooms have no balconies but climate control is excellent. We did breakfast inclusive package which well worth as individually the breakfast can work out a tad pricey - norm for the gulf though.
Lovely pool, beach, grounds.nice touch they provide iced water periodically to keep you lubricated. Very comfortable sun beds . Even has a swim up bar offering happy hour early evenings
Good selection of restaurants although we took opportunity to walk to the nearby Suk which has plenty to offer.
Would warmly recommend this hotel to anyone

Was a great experience to visit this wonderful Hotel between the two bridges. Room 649 was spacious and warm overlooking the Mosque!. Food at the restaurant is great but something needs to be done about service especially billing time. The Hostess in the evening should not only show the guest where to sit but go an extra mile by offering Menu especially when the servers are overwhelmed. Otherwise its a great hotel and looking forward to visit once again.

Stayed here for a long weekend with friends and I honestly cannot recommend this hotel enough.

The rooms are outstanding, service impeccable, pool fantastic and breakfast delicious.

The beach area was a bit dirty but I believe that it belongs to someone else so the hotel can't do anything about it.

We were also given a smoking room by accident but the hotel did everything possible to sort it out for us.

I would quite happily go back.
