I travelled with my daughter back in April and had a fab time. Staff were very friendly helpfull and nothing was too much trouble. Pool staff were very efficient and went out of the way to bring ice cold towels and fruit.
Our room was clean spacious and room service was excellent especially the food menu.
The shuttle into Abu Dhabi was good and excellent for us.

I am going back next week with my husband and I know he will enjoy the lovely breakfast,service and Golf. Cannot wait|

Overall excellent hotel to stay if you have events to attend to at Yas Island. Abu Dhabi centre is some 35 mins away but costs around 55 dirhams approx £10. A must do is a visit to Ferarri World and the fastest ride in the world 'Formula Rosso' I dare you !!!! Like to single out the bouncer at Stills Bar a guy called Himran who was just a brilliant guy who effectively became our google on most things Abu Dhabi so many thanks and give this guy a pay rise !

Having decided to spend the weekend out of Dubai and go to Yas Island for a mini break, we booked this hotel as I had a free night that I won. We paid for the second night to make it a weekend. Included was a dinner and breakfast both mornings.

The evening buffet was terrible. The choice was strange and nothing matched. I ended up eating cheese and crackers for dinner.

Breakfast was not much better. they have no pork license on the Island so we had turkey bacon which was lovely on the Friday morning and dreadful on the saturday. The pancakes we rubbery at best on Friday and unedible on the saturday.

We went to the pool and there was no space for us so we had to sit on a chair and wait. The kids were messing around by the pool bar so it was loud and a lot of spashing around when we just wanted a little peace. We got a sunbed eventually. We found out that the hotel has "members" that can just use the pool at weekends. Perhaps they should think more about the guests

the rooms were small and we did not stay in the cheapest room. You could hear EVERYTHING in the corridors too

Handy for the F1 circuit, otherwise it's in a wasteland at the end of the runway at Abu Dhabi airport so you can enjoy planes going overhead all night.
Even odder is the random bursts of loud music from the swimming pool area.
If you have an early flight don't stay here.

Unfortunately we only did a one night stopover in this Crowne Plaza, arriving late at night and leaving at sparrows. So apart from entering through a very large lobby we can only comment on the room, which was great. Crisp white bed linen, fruit for us to eat, good shower and the offer of an early morning call. All we could want for such a short stay.

We chose the Crowne Plaza due to it's proximity to the airport as previously we'd stayed in downtown Abu Dhabi and didn't relish the long drive for such a short stay.

Having just read another reviewer, I now wish we'd been there long enough to have the Chicken Caesar Salad.

Room Tip: I would imagine they are all good.

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!
