Staybridge Suites at Yas Island are very clean and comfortable... The hotel has a total european feel to it - the furnishings, colors and the customers. The suites are occupied by longer term residents and so it has a homely feel to it... you can see families with little children, people using the library... There is a nicely furnished kitchen in every suite, and also there is a little pantry (little expensive though) where you can get some food so you can quickly fix yourself a pasta dinner while you watch TV. Internet is complimentary, and works well.
The staff and their service is excellent. Front-desk team is top notch, and the experience is informal and friendly. I had a little discomfort with a smell, and in an instant they brought an ionic filter and deodorizers that took care of the problem immediately - and that was very much appreciated.
The complimentary breakfast bar is decent... there are several hot food items, and breads. There are cereals, yogurts, fruit juices etc. I didn't like the way they made the scrambled eggs or the boiled egg, though - but that could be my food preference. The Crowne Plaza next door has much (MUCH) better breakfast - so compare prices and availability.
On the downside, Yas Island is kind of very far from city. Room service was not excellent... pizza I got was barely warm. There are 4-5 hotels adjacent to Staybridge suites, one of them being crowne plaza, another one is Rotana, and couple others. Each hotel has one or two restaurants that generally need reservations. Most restaurants offer a buffet dinner that is about 150-200 Dirhams per person (inclusive of tax/fees). The food is for an international audience (risk - not very authentic). Bottomline, don't expect to just go and "grab a bite" at a neighborhood restaurants. Staybridge doesn't supply water bottles on a daily basis to make coffee etc - they have a choice to buy a box of water bottles. If you are staying there for long it may work, but if you want to stay for a couple of days, then you need to plan to buy some water .. or pickup from complimentary breakfast nook in the mornings :-)
Bar in Crowne Plaza is excellent.
Swimming pool in staybridge is small (approx 10mx25m, max depth 4-5 feet), but its clean and comfortable for a dip.
Strongly recommend if you plan to stay a couple or more nights - especially with your family.
