“Great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

We stayed in this hotel for two nights on 10 and 11 July 2013. We arrived quite late on our fist night from Dubai, but check in went quick, and the check in staff was very friendly and helpful, and gave us some information, as it was our first visit to Yas Island. We had two rooms, linked with a door, and we found the rooms to be really beautiful, with a very nice, clean modern bathroom. Our rooms had a view over some of the other hotels and the links golf course in the distance. Al the hotels on Yas island are situated together, and everything is beautiful, clean and modern, lovely gardens. Breakfast was included in our rate, and breakfast was served at the sister hotel a few meters away. This was not a problem at all, it is not far to walk. The reason for the breakfast being served at the sister hotel was due to Ramadan.

We really enjoyed our stay. It was good value for money. Very nice breakfast as well.

The only down side to our visit, and it has nothing to do with the hotel, is that is was Ramadan, and noting to eat or drink was available during the day at restaurants and malls - and for a tourist it is nice to do some sightseeing and then sit down for something to drink or eat. Nether the less, we did survive ;-)

We did visit the golf course, Ferrari World and Yas Marina circuit.

Will we stay at this hotel again? Absolutely YES! This hotel is much better than the 3 star rating it has.

Dear Blackspaniel,

Thank you very much for taking the time to post this comprehensive and positive review for Centro Yas Island. This will surely motivate our teams to exceed guests expectations even more.

Hopefully, you are able to visit Yas Island again sometime in the winter season when you could enjoy the nearby attractions better. But should you ever visit us again during Ramadan, you'll be happy to know that you may order some snacks and light meals at C.Deli on the ground level near the guest lifts. When you have the food in the comfort and privacy of your own rooms, you are still adhering to and respecting local observances.

Once again, we sincerely thank you for your positive comments, and we look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Kind regards,
The Marketing Department
Yas Island Rotana and Centro Yas Island

I stayed at this hotel during a business trip to Abu Dhabi. It was pre-arranged by my company and I had no say in my choice of hotel. All the senior managers in my company are accommodated in the Rotana which is adjacent so I was not sure what to expect. In one word the hotel is excellent. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The room was excellent, really nice and tastefully decorated with modern furnishings. I was working during my visit so didn't really use the facilities but breakfast was good and room service menu was excellent, quality and good value. I have stayed in some excellent hotels around the world and think this should be a four star.

Having returned to Abu Dhabi on business for a 12 week assignment with just a short weekend break back to the UK, being put up in a hotel for that long might have seemed a chore. However, due to the friendliness of all the staff, the cleanliness of the room and the surrounding plaza, my stay was most pleasant. I tended to eat outside the Y Bar (located within the next door sister hotel, the Rotana) where again the staff made me feel very welcomed (and the food was excellent). Further, having the choice of either the pool or Yas beach (being just a 10minute walk from the hotel) made the weekends very relaxing.

A stylish and affordable weekend getaway you can have with your family. We stayed there for 2 nights and enjoyed the whole day swimming under the sun and barbeque themed buffet at dinner. I will highly recommend this hotel specially to people who are in a tight budget.

Located in the most beautiful location of abu dhabi. the rooms are very modern very bright and have good view. The most important thing is the cleanliness and the external site. The staff too happy and too helpful. Moreover, all the receptionists and specifically MR. Vika are very kind and very helpful....

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the upper floors.Greater view.

This hotel was just simply amazing! We got good night rests, relax full evenings and nights, and delicious meals. The room was very modern and comforting. We had a great view from our room of the surrounding hotels. The hotel room was very clean and the staff was willing to make our stay very joyous, as well as comforting. Whoever is planning to travel to Abu Dhabi, I recommend you stay at this hotel, whether it would be a family or a business trip.

We stayed there for 2 days and everything was just perfect! Staff was very pleasant and accommodating to our requests. The room assigned to me had a great view of Yas island, clean and comfy, modern facilities with complimentary drinks. Their swimming pool is located just outside their restaurant. While their buffet breakfast was delicious and they have wide array of meals to choose from.

There is a shuttle bus if you want to go to ferrari world, waterworld or anywhere within the island, and this is free to all hotel guests.

This is the most fabulous stays I had on all Rotana properties. :)
