This was a last minute decision that turned out to be the perfect weekend break. The room was high-tech but also had the personal touch and the staff could not do enough. Great TV, free internet everywhere and those nice little Nespresso machines.
If you find 24/7 5* dining expensive then there are hordes of places in AD just a few minutes taxi ride away and the Marina shopping mall less than 2k. Pools are excellent with one for the kids and the staff bring around small refreshments (cooled melon/ices) and cold towels gratis. While not spectacular the beach is clean and fine safe for kids. Also visit the observatory in the adjacent tower that shares the slightly bland atrium. While all views are spectacular this is the highest point in AD.
What would make an already outstanding hotel perfect? There is still work in progress in adjacent towers so expect a few clanking sounds (but not intrusive) - if you needed total seclusion and chill then a city hotel would never really provide this anyway. There is no indoor pool which, while not a problem in April might be missed in the heat of the summer. Finally, the shower spilled over but probably because it sent such a fantastic jet in the 1st place.
We got a great deal, possibly because the final outside touches are still being put in place but more likely because AD now has a glut of 5* hotels but not as much happening in the hotter months.
