I just tried the lunch buffet and it was amazing. Various dish choices and the chef de cuisine Mohammed al Okla was very friendly and offered us the best dishes to our table. I strongly recommend it since it offers a warm ambience with friendly waiters and tasty international dishes.

We eventually arrived at this one year old property when our taxi driver finally discovered it's location. The reception area, rooms and fittings are fabulous. The welcome from the staff was warm, professional and in line with our expectations having read previous reviews of this hotel. Fruit juice was offered whilst we checked in, and we were guided to our room by one of the hotel staff, who explained how to use the lift, unlock doors etc. by using the electronic key. From a practical viewpoint the hotel cannot be faulted.

Our reservations about this hotel are around functionality. Sofitel pride their reputation on their beds - I'm afraid we didn't find them special. The hotel says it has three bars, yes it does, but only two appeared to sell alcoholic beverages, the pool bar which only had bottled goods, and the main hotel bar, Jazz &Fizz, which didn't open to 18.00 and during our stay had no draught beer to offer. Thankfully, there's a Sheraton across the road which has a happy hour from 12.00 to 20.00 each day and a great value food menu.

The food offerings in the various outlets seemed relatively limited also. The same menu appeared to be a theme across the pool bar, Jazz &Fiz and room service, albeit with minor variations.

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel, but were disappointed by the apparent lack of choice. We were also disappointed that housekeeping tried to clean our room at 09.00 on a Sunday morning and we had to invite them back later once we were up and about. Would we stay again? Probably not.

We had an amazing stay. Very stylish and luxurious hotel. Elegant and comfortable standard room with chic design of the bathroom. The staff is polite and attentive. The team at the pool lounge is fantastic. Great culinary offerings. Our dinner at the Thai restaurant was very delicious, can't wait to go again.

Excellent hotel, very modern, with good amenities and excellent location for Corniche, downtown Abu Dhabi and a short 15-20 minute ride to Yas Island. The only thing that let it down was the slow service at breakfast and it took at least 15 minutes and approaches to around 5 staff to finally get a cup of tea.
