Stayed here for 3 nights on a holiday. As we spent an extended time in Abu Dhabi, instead of staying in one hotel, we tried several (Capital Gate, Eastern Mangroves, Fairmont, Viceroy).
Room: The room is very clean, luxuous and modern. Well designed and a wonderful bathroom and bathtub. We could not find any fault. A nice view towards the sea. The beds and pillows are very comfortable.
Facilities: There is a nice gym, a spa and an outside pool, sort of hanging along the wonderful designed Hyatt Capital Gate. Whilst the lobby is small, it is very nicely decorated and check out the great library corner.
Location: We were a bit concerned about the location, but it turned out to be only a short taxi ride to e.g. Marin Mall (about 15-20 minutes). Mushrif Mall is only a couple of minutes away. However, there is nothing in walking distance from the hotel (shops/restaurants).
Reception/Staff: Everyone was very friendly and professional.
Breakfast/food: We had dinner in the café on the first floor, which was a bit pricy, but tasted fine. Our only complaint in respect of the Hyatt hotel was the breakfast. The selection was below average (what may be expected from a Hyatt). On the first day of our stay, the carrot juice was not refilled as they did not have anymore, whilst the breakfast was still open for about 1.5 hour. On the second morning the carrot juice was not even there. That was a minus. Also the refilling of other items, from bananas to breads could take up to 30 minutes. Other items which were there on the first morning were not available on the second morning. Coffee was served by the waiters per cup, but it took a very long time (up to 20 minutes) for each cup to arrive on our table. Luckily on the third morning we got a pot of coffee. Whilst the views are nice in the restaurant, the breakfast was our least favorite of all the hotels we stayed in Abu Dhabi (and actually all of the Middle East) and honestly disappointing for a five star hotel like Hyatt.
Overall: A very beautifully designed hotel with wonderful rooms. You are not right in the center of things, but with a short taxi ride, all of Abu Dhabi is available to you. The breakfast is questionable. I would not recommend this for holidays for more than 2-3 nights as the hotel can be more considered a business hotel.
