“Amazing weekend :)”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

me and my boyfriend had a weekend get away last week and it was a memorable one. Our room was fantastic with the great view from the cornice and food also was superb.:)

We would like to thank Ms. April Rosal who was very accommodating and made our stay memorable. :)

Luxury hotel - high standard facilities
Black and white decor
Open plan bathroom, excellent toilet tries
Great bedding, kettle, coffee, fridge in the room
Rich breakfast buffet
Nice, friendly staff
Great Thai restaurant
Pool pleasant but no sun exposure as high buildings surround it
Spa facilities nice and efficient

Room Tip: Avoid room 2108, bathroom smells bad!

Sofitel offered me the best hospitality so far in Abu Dhabi. Staff at Reservation (Dilrukshi), Check-in (Paul), Concierge (Erwin and John), Housekeeping team and the F&B team provided me the best services that I had never seen in Abu Dhabi since 1996. Kudos to Sofitel and Thank you for making my stay memorable.

Definitely, I will stay again with Sofitel.

Let's start with the start: excellent first impression for this stylish, sobre (and that's a good thing in UAE) and well located hotel. The room is all you can expect from a hotel of this standard, the gym is quite all right for a hotel gym, and the pool is pretty nice as well. I should also say a word about the Thai restaurant "Silk & Spice", which clearly deserves a visit.

On the negative side is the Club Millesime Lounge (that is the Executive Club). Though it does look and feel nice, and though the service is more than appropriate, some local policies are either absurd and/or unevenly applied. I have notably and repeateadly seen people (more on the family vacations side) showing up for breakfast wearing bermudas and not be rebuked, despite the dress code. On a weekend day, and early morning, however, I was myself rebuked for wearing bermudas, which boasted my anger. The "cocktail" hours are strangely inadequate, besides, so you had better rush there in between 17:30 and 19:30 if you are into having a G&T or a beer before dinner. Last time I checked, this was not Germany. Breakfast at the Club Millesime is also somewhat disappointing and limited in choice/diversity. All in all, as a result, and unlike other Sofitel hotels I've stayed at before, I'm really not sure it is worth paying for access to this Lounge.

A few other negative details could be worth mentioning as well, such as having to call room service for a resupply in coffee in the room, which had been recurrently forgotten by housekeeping, or having to "sign in/sign out" almost everywhere you go (gym, pool, but surprisingly not the executive lounge....), which I find irritating and fairly useless.

This is my second stay att this fantastic hotel. I travel a lot and stay at many different hotels. This is definitely a five star hotel with an extraordinary guestservice. The rooms are very stylish, clean and with a designtouch that makes a stay very enjoyable. Breakfast is magnificent with a variety that is unusual to experience. The hotel have several different restaurants I visit two of them and was very pleased with the food and service.
Finally I am very impressed with the guestservice, it is top of the line. In this regard a special thanks to Mr Hani Akkari, the front office manager of the hotel. Mr Hani Akkari always tries to achieve that extra for the hotelguests which makes a difference.

I have stayed at the Sofitel Corniche a number of times over the last year. They honour the benefits for Accor Platinum members, and welcome at the front door is always warm and sincere.

What stands out is the service and people in the Club Millesime lounge. Devender and Rangana are the real superstars there.

Compared to when I started staying at the hotel a year ago, there seem to be a lot of new faces. And the only criticism is that the service may not be as consistent as before. If new staff gets adequate training, I am sure these inconsistencies would disappear.

The restaurants are quite pricey, but the food is good.

Room Tip: High up and facing the Persian Gulf

Arrived at the hotel on business, really impressed by the check in and the staff. Room was very good also. The pool area served great shisha and the food was also good. A great thing about this hotel is, no matter about the weather and how hot, the pool area has always a natural breeze which makes it good to just chill and relax.

Very convenient for the city and the business areas all of which are close by.

Room Tip: order the special shisha, its very good!
