Stills Bar has arguably the World's Best Chicken Caesar Salad. I don't say this lightly - I travel about 80% of the year and average 25-30 countries a year. The bar manager is a donkey, but the Chicken Caesar is perfect. I actually visit this place based on that alone.

They serve decent beer on tap too, which is a rarity in these parts. Leffe, Hoegaarten and Münchener all on tap!

Room Tip: Stay at the Radisson next door. Just come here for the food.

I satyed here back in April and have been meaning to write a review since. What a fabulous hotel! From the second we arrived we were made feel special and I really can't fault it at all. We had a beautiful room at the back of the hotel overlooking the pool. The room was big and very modern. I loved the glass wall between the bathroom and bedroom and I know this may not be to everyones tase but showering with a view of the barron landscape around us was quite the treat! It's easily rectified with a knob to close the blinds in the glass so I don't think it should be a problem for anyone.

The breakfast was amazing! Wow, so many options! It was a huge room bursting with gorgeous creations. I only wish I could have eaten more! The ordering system to be fair is a little confusing but once someone explains what you have to do it's fine.

The pool was also lovely, I feel like I'm gushing but this was a very special place. Towels are provided and numerous big comfy beds to choose from. The poolside service was great, very friendly and when we asked for cocktails and that weren't on the menu it wasn't a problem.

Yas island is an interesting place and this is a great location. We only stayed for a couple of nights because we wanted to move around and see as much as possible but I could have easily stayed here for a week!

This Crowne Plaza is the best Crowne I've have been to. The hotel is recent with an enjoyable contemporary style. Club room are quite large and very well equiped. The bed is very confortable and the bathroom was large and convenient. The food (room service) was excellent and the overall service was very appreciable. It is convenient to come from or to Abu Dhabi airport. A nice exemple to be followed by other Crowne Hotel !

Stayed at this hotel 31 August until 08 September. Had previously arranged airport transfer with hotel, as late arrival, & was met immediatly by driver. Upon check in at hotel, was immediatly upgraded to room 740 - Crowne Plaza Club. Great views out on balcony overlooking pool area, Yas Island Golf Course, Arabian Gulf & Abu Dhabi in the distance. Balcony safe for kids - no crawl spaces, & safety locks on balcony doors - out of kiddies reach. Pool area very well kept, plenty of friendly staff with life guard on duty. Towels provided. Seperate kids area in main pool, & a totally seperate pool for toddlers, approx; 1' - 1.5' deep.
Breakfast plentiful in Jing Asia restaurant. Buffet style, & can go as many times as you like - no need for lunch. Wide choice, which changed daily. Extremely friendly staff.
Rooms very well kept & clean. Bed extremely comfortable - difficult to get out in the mornings.
Linen changed daily, compliamentary bottled water, tea & coffee facilties provided - nothing too much trouble with regard to housekeeping. Turn down service provided. Room service menu fair choice, & spot on with service & time of delivery. Mini bar prices are high - small bottle of coke, 17 dhs - Sundowner pool bar can of coke, 12 dhs (including 16% taxes). Cheaper to buy drinks at pool bar or room service than mini bar.
I read on one travel site that hotel has beach access - it doesn't. I emailed hotel to check this, & reply came back that that guests can use Intercontinental Hotel for beach - at a cost of 40dhs. There is a compliamentary bus service from hotel that takes you to Intercontinental Hotel &/or Marina Mall. Compliamentary vouchers are available at reception for value of 75 dhs, for use at Intercontinental Hotel Beach Club - let you work that out ourselves.
Hotel, & Yas Island itself is under the flight path to/from Abu Dhabi airport, but you are not at the end of the runway, & it is hardly Heathrow. Construction is taking place on Yas Island (same throughout Emirates), but this does not affect the holiday, as hardly any noise heard.
24 hour access to business centre, so easy to check in for flights & print off boarding passes etc. Assistance is required to print as there is a charge.
Great hotel, extremely friendly staff throughout, very clean & comfortable. A great place to 'chillax'. Easy access to city itself - approx; 15 mins drive - depending on traffic, but good roads.
Taxis are plentiful, & easy to hail. As mentioned, used hotel airport transfer on arrival - cost 85 dhs. Used taxi (straight outside hotel main enterance) on return to airport - cost 16 dhs.
Hotel good for solo, couples, & families, either on vacation or business.
Would i stay here again? - most definatly.
Thank you to all at Crowne Plaza Yas Island.

We spent 2 nights at the Crown Plaza in Abu Dhabi Yas Island in September 2011, and it was a very nice stay. The staff are very friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the food was very good as well; we tried the buffet for lunch and there was a big variety (same thing for breakfast). We also tried the burgers for lunch, at Stills, and they were excellent. There was a small play area for the kids, which was very convenient as well. The pool is not very big, but still acceptable. Overall we had a good experience at this hotel.
