“Enjoyable experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2011

Emirates airlines put me in this hotel on a layover so I can't comment on price. I had a very nice room overlooking the pool, part of the golf course, and the water beyond. I thought the glassed in bathroom was a bit over the top, but it was a great bathroom :). I loved my little balcony, too, though it was too hot and humid to actually go out on it. The bed was extremely comfortable. The buffet was the best hotel buffet I have ever experienced anywhere. It had great foods from all different cuisines and they cooked to my specification. The hotel has a spa and a very good fitness room. For muslim travelers, there is a prayer room. There are some attractions and activities close by the hotel - a big shopping mall, the indoor waterpark, the formula 1 race track.

I am so glad to say that last night was yet another perfect night at the Stills Bar in Crowne PLaza. Unfortunately I have been working alot and have not returned since my last visit however, last night my friends and I visted the Bar for a night out. As usual a wonderful friendly smile from the Security gaurd and a pleasent welcome back from the staff as though I never left. Last night we decided to stick to beers and I must say the Carlsberg was fresh on the tap. Our waitress the wonderfully friendly, well managed Sibongili ( female waitress from LadySmith South Africa) was at her best again, serving us with her award winning smile every time she topped us up. We were a big crowd last night, south africans, spanish, norwegin, philliphine, austraillian and californian, and we ALL enjoyed the experiance. I will def be back again when I get a chance. Thank you to all at the bar for another beautiful evening in a beautiful place with wonderful people.

We chose this hotel as it is very close to the airport and F1 circuit. We checked in very late and received a genuinly warm welcome. The room was modern, clean and well appointed with lots of electrical sockets, flat screen tv with plenty of international channels, minbar and excellent bathroom.
The breakfast buffet the next morning was plentiful and varied. The waiting staff very helpful. We enjoyed the pool area and pool service. We took the complimentary shuttle into the city but as the last shuttle back to the hotel left at about 4.30pm we caught a taxi back.
We were offered a complimentary late check-out which we really appreciated.
In the evening we ate at Stills which provided great pub food and drinks in a friendly and busy atmosphere.
We would be very happy to stay here again and would recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to be near the airport/Ferrari World/F1 circuit. The service, rooms and restaurants were all excellent.

Room Tip: The rooms facing away from the Yas F1 circuit all have balconies and get good sunsets.

This is my second stay at this location, and I have to say I will be aiming to book at this hotel during my next stay.
Dispite staying at the downtown location a number of times, this Pool here is bigger. The facilities are what you would expect for a hotel of this calibre and the recieption staff, the room staff and the bar staff could not do enough for you.

Although outside Abu Dhabi itself, this hotel is convenient for the airport and about a 20 minute drive from downtown. Rooms are spacious and have a balcony.

The swimming pool is nice and a good way to wind down at the end of a working day. I stay in about 40 hotels a year and this is one of my favourites; I would stay here in preference to the Abu Dhabi Intercontinental (and I always get a suite there!); bring earplugs as the grand prix circuit and airprot flightpath are nearby.

Room Tip: View over the golf course is nice

This is a very good hotel. I stayed here for 3 nights on business with other colleagues. The quality of the hotel, rooms, decors, cleanliness was one of the best that I have stayed in. Brand new, shinning, posh, polished, great decor and ambiance. Its new, immaculate clean, everything here is bright and shining. The various floor corridors were the best that i have seen so far. Very trendy and posh. Hotel service is good as well. Jhing asia served good breakfast / lunch also the pool terrace bar great in the evenings.

It is right next to the Yas Hotel and the formula 1 track. Thus I believe it is best for formula 1 trips and business trips (proximity to the track, business visits- an excellent place to stay for 3/4 days with only occasional and planned sight seeing trips out)

Overall, a very formal and business traveler kind of a hotel, It is not a resort as such so if you are looking for a vacation, beaches, spas (i did see a spa center) and relaxing activities, this might not be the place. If Abudhabi tourism is the objective then go for something inside the city. The location for this hotel might not be ideal for tourism.
