We visited this property for a weekend getaway in the first week of Ramadan. Overall, it is a very serene property, overlooking the Mangroves in Abu dhabi. The staff is polite, and courteous. Unfortunately, as our visit coincided with Ramadan, the occupancy was extremely low, making it almost too quiet. With the FIFA world cup on, we expected a lot more buzz at the bar. I'm guessing the hotel does not advertise enough / keep enough offers to attract a decent crowd. The pool deck was mostly empty in the evening. Again, I believe this was more so because of Ramadan. However, it would be recommended if the hotel would have some deals for to attract crowds during lull periods to make the ambience more lively.
We visited the Thai restaurant downstairs for dinner, however, the vegetarian options were minimal, and we had to leave, and visit one of the promenade restaurants nearby.
The swimming pool is gorgeous though, and the lifeguard on duty is pleasant.
Also, the room service was fantastic, as they made our rooms when we stepped out in the evening without us asking.
Visit if you prefer a quiet getaway, close to the city, yet away from it.
