I stayed in the Park Inn on Yas Island for one night during July 2013 and it was just by coincidence that I ended up staying there. My Etihad flight to Abu Dhabi was delayed by 6 hours and I subsequently missed my connecting flight to Ireland so Etihad sent me to this hotel for 24 hours.
This hotel is a new hotel and is located on Yas Island close by the Formula One Circuit of Abu Dhabi. Ferrari World is also located a short distance away. My chauffeur drove me from Abu Dhabi Airport to the hotel and it was only a short journey of less than 15 minutes. I was greeted and checked-in by a friendly receptionist and she explained the arrangement for the chauffeur to collect me in the evening for my flight.
The hotel room I had was overlooking the front of the hotel and it was a really good sized room. Two single beds were provided and they were very comfortable. The room had a 32” HDTV with cable, free Wi-Fi, a writing desk with lamp, coffee table and chair, a full sized safe and a closet is also provided. A luggage rack and storage area is also built in next to the closet. The bathroom was a good size and had a wonderful walk in shower. The fixtures in the bathroom were of a very high quality. Tea and Coffee facilities were provided as were two complimentary bottles of drinking water.
The air-conditioning provided was excellent and despite it being 48°c outside it felt positively cold inside when I set it to the lowest temperature, having travelled in South East Asia for five weeks prior to this I did not encounter a hotel with as good an Air-Con system. The housekeeping do an excellent job here because the entire hotel was completely spotless inside and out.
That evening I had dinner in the Amerigos Mexican Restaurant downstairs and I had a steak there. I must give special credit to the staff of the restaurant because this steak was the best steak I have ever eaten in my entire life. It was served to me by an African chef and was presented nicely on a hot marble stone. A Thai waitress took my order and she was also exceptionally well mannered and friendly. The nachos at the beginning of the meal were a nice snack to begin with also.
Unfortunately my stay was too short and that evening after dinner the receptionist arranged for my Etihad driver to come collect me for my night flight back home. Mr. Bibbin and the staff in reception and the restaurant are a credit to this hotel and having spent the previous five weeks staying in hotels around SE Asia this hotel far exceeded anything I stayed in during the whole trip.
For a stop-over in Abu Dhabi or for a visit in its own right this hotel checks all the boxes and I will be certain to stay here again in the future.
