My trip was to Abu Dhabi was to meet up with my daughter who had been pack packing around Asia, and wanted some luxury before she returned back to England. She certainly got luxury, as did I. I can not fault the staff working there. They could not do enough for you, and even if you didn't need anything, they would smile and say good morning. We stayed half board, and the food for both breakfast and dinner was varied, very well cooked, making it a very enjoyable experience! I had been warned that as 2 females, we might be looked down on slightly, couldn't be further from the truth from the staff at this hotel. They did everything possible to make our stay special. The room we had was just lovely, queen sized beds each, an amazing view, plenty of room for luggage, cleaned daily, with a turn down service in the evenings. Poolside was excellent, including a lovely pool, and amazing service yet again from the staff. The only reason I wouldn't give this a 5 star review was because on our last night we ate at Frankies Restaurant, not part of our half board deal. The food wasn't brilliant, dry pasta, al dente risotto rice, but just a little bit too al dente for me. Abu Dhabi is expensive, and we were looking forward to this meal, as an expensive send off from a brilliant break. We paid that bill, but didn't feel elated. Overall, if I was to visit Abu Dhabi again, I would stay there, and if I visit other countries, I would check if they had a Fairmont hotel there, as I can easily say it is the best hotel I have stayed in
