Wow! We were in Abu Dhabi for a two night stopover and didn't really expect much from this hotel, but it was incredible. The views, the pool, the food and the service were absolutely amazing. We really didn't want to leave and I will definitely go back one day. The swimming pool was just beautiful with its views over the mangroves. We were very lucky to be upgraded to an even bigger room, which was a bonus.

it's really Great Hotel, excellent experience & highly recommended & here is some comments

Thumps UP:
Great hospitality, Wonderful staff, quick check in, spacious clean rooms, comfortable bed , Great view, quick room service, Large lobby with three types of dates available for guest s served with Arabic coffee ,lovely swimming pool, availability of some water sports.

Thumps Down:
Depth of the Swimming pool is only 1.25 M (this might be an advantage for other guests)
Kids swimming pool is very small
(In my room 429)The shower mixer was not balanced between the hot and cold water suddenly turns from warm to cold
Delay in collecting the luggage at check out time, I waited 30 minutes for the boy

Room Tip: Chose Mangroves view

We recently stayed at this oasis in the city for 4nts. We arrived in the early hours of the morning as we had arrived off a flight from Australia in Dubai. Our check-in was very smooth and got to our room quite quickly.

We had breakfast at Ingredients Restaurant - the staff were very accommodating and attentive. We were even offered fresh dim sim from the chef. As for variety there is an abundance of choice and quality was good and fresh.

The Pool Deck Restaurant meal was Greek inspired however, we found the meal to be quite average and fairly bland - which was a bit disappointing.

My husband tried the Turkish Hammam which he found the setting to be quite authentic and relaxing.

The pool was a wonderful retreat during the heat of the day. It is a shame that you have to walk through the main lobby area to get to the pool, which I agree with other comments that it does feel quite exposed to public areas.

The location of the hotel itself is on the outskirts of the hustle and bustle of the main city centre but still easy enough to get a taxi to any major attraction without too much inconvenience.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel to family and friends if they were looking to stay in Abu Dhabi.

Room Tip: Request Mangroves / Pool View room

Spent three very relaxing days here in June 2013. Amazing hotel with amazing service and brilliant Thai food. Set on the edge of Abu Dhabi City so it's easy to get to for all, yet far enough from the city and set in such a good location that you feel like you're away from it all. Finished the weekend off with a kayak session through the Mangroves - the perfect ending. Shout out to jeff our guide for the Mangroves trip - top guy.

Just stayed one night here but have visited many times to eat and use the gym membership. We had a Kasara Club level room which included an evening happy hour from 5:30-8:30 with gratis mixed drinks and beer and wine as well as breakfast included. Room was average size for this region but very well appointed. Abu Dhabi is a fast paced city but with a room looking over the mangroves it was so easy to forget where we were. The pool is great with a vanishing edge that looks into the mangroves. We have tried Ingredients buffet restaurant as well as Pachaylan Thai restaurant on many occasions and both are excellent. The Friday buffet is especially good and many of my local friends consider it one of the best in the region for lunch or Friday Brunch. The gym is fantastic with an exceptionally friendly staff – Lydia, Nick, Shirley, and the manager Clare. Lots of cardio equipment, free weights, and machines.

OK – on to the spa… Wow! Truly one of the best spas I have ever been to. Get the Traditional Turkish Hamam you will not be sorry!!
One odd thing is that the carpet in the hallways and some rooms is showing some signs of wear – very strange for a hotel that is just celebrating its one year anniversary.
Last note is that this hotel does not sell day passes to the pool and gym. If you have stayed at one that does, you’ll know what I’m talking about. This means that only hotel guests and full gym members can access the pool facilities – much less crowded and a much better behaved clientele

Room Tip: Get the Kasara Club room and be sure you are on the Mangroves side!!

Arrived at EM at around 12 noon, and they immediately check us in...
wonderful staff very friendly....
I had asked for interconnecting rooms, however that wasn't available... however they managed to get us 2 rooms next to each other... (didn't mind too much)
the rooms are very nice, and very big... they have everything you need and nothing you don't...
the pool was nice (average pool) nothing fancy... a very very small kiddie pool + jacuzzi.
Tried to order some food next to the pool, but it was only a greek menu .... as i wanted to order some burgers/ pizza/ chicken nuggets for the kids,, but that didn't happen. so i had to go to my room and orders from the kids menu there for my kids.
the dinner at "Ingredients" was spectacular... i wish i had 2 or 3 stomachs just to be able to try everything... and "Meeri" was very very helpful in getting us seated, as we wanted to feed the kids first, put them to bed and then come back and enjoy our adult dinner, and she was very helpful and understanding.. so thank you very much for making it a special evening.
the breakfast was just as good as dinner... great.
overall
Hotel facilities -- Good not great, just a pool with a very very small kiddie pool (they should have kids club) considering there is no beach.
Hotel it self is very beautiful .. nothing too fancy which is great.. (its not too much in your face)
the staff were the Starts of the show... 10/10 for staff helpfulness and friendliness. They made our stay great... so thank you
