Reviewed 19 August 2014

I stayed here overnight with my husband and son. This stay was a gift to my husband as his birthday was on 6th August. It was indeed a memorable stay with such lovely people. Especially, the front office manager who upgraded us to a suite and Gary from reservations who made sure everything was well set & arranged for cake & wine complementary and added to this experience. It was the most quality 24 hours spent with my family - my 3 year old enjoyed at the beach and swimming pool. Thank you, I will definitely come to this place again. :)

I've stayed here many times on business in the last eight months. The best feature of the hotel is definitely the staff. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming- always offering help. Rita and Umar in particular are excellent to work with and very good at their jobs.

The condition of the hotel overall compared to others in Abu Dhabi is not as nice. It is an older building (by AD standards), and it shows. There are various parts of the hotel under renovation right now, so that may be in the process of changing. The rooms are tastefully decorated, but are often humid- even changing the temperature and speed of the fan does not help. If you are looking for a quiet room you should ask for one on the side of the hotel away from the restaurant area as it can get quite noisy when there are football games or other events.

The Village area with all of the restaurants offers a nice variety of choices for guest of the hotel and is also popular with people living in town. It is a lively place to watch a game and they frequently have events coinciding with holidays, World Cup, etc. The gym is very clean, but slightly overcrowded with equipment. I haven't used the pool or beach facilities, but they look nice.

If you are looking for an affordable place to stay with great staff, this is a good choice. If you're expecting the luxury that many of the hotels offer in Abu Dhabi, then you should go elsewhere.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side away from the area with all of the restaurants to avoid a noisy night.

Making a booking through websites in this hotel gave us a lot of grief while checking in. We've been waiting for more than an hour to check in with no drinks complimentary with lame excuses about the booking need to be verified.

Have stayed here earlier, but this time was different. Had got better rates on Eid, although it took us 40 min to check in but the Manager (Mr Ibrahim) intervened and upgraded us to a Diplomatic Suite. We got really excited and had spent 2 days, second and third day of Eid. The hotel needs a makeover but great location if you need a resort and want to shop.

Have to try out the Spa (Hammam) and their pool.

The only problem was their breakfast, the staff were not very polite and the Breakfast did not have many options.

Room Tip: Try to get only suites they are spacious, the club and deluxe rooms are small and old.

Dear ZohK,

Thank you for sharing your feedback on TripAdvisor. I am happy to learn that we were able to upgrade you following the time delay you encountered whilst checking in. However, we do regret that we did not live up to your expectations regarding the breakfast and the service provided. We would like to mention the difficulties experienced are not a normal reflection of our usual high standard of customer service. Usually we are known to be one of the most friendly and kind staff in Abu Dhabi and our breakfasts are highly appreciated by our valuable guests. We will ensure your comments are shared with the concerned department. You will be happy to hear that plans are under way to improve the offering and we have already started to renovate the hotel. We sincerely look forward to welcome you back for your third stay with us.

Yours Sincerely
Nemo Acimovic

we arrivaed by evening time but still our room was not ready. check in procedure took more than 20 mins. mistakenly booked for studio and it was far away from sivilization - very old room, smells very bad and easily can reach ceiling. staff are very rude and can`t speak English well. if we asked any place they would tell "go" but which side or direction no idea. mistakenly enterred one office, i tryed to ask a lady but she closed door in front of my face, BIG SHOCK. i looked at door, it was Sales office, even they should assist the guest. we walked around to get to our room, then to swimming pool. very far distance and staff don`t care. they should get trainings about hotel standards (i wonder how they were hired). we requested fan arrived after third reminder. in swimming area you can see "swim for your risk" hehehee (means they don`t care if you will die) and all areas with note "no lifeguard on duty". OH MY GOD!

only liked swimming pool, sauna and small small jaccuzzis with different water temperatures.

Room Tip: don`t ever stay at this hotel

My partner stayed at Le Meridien Abu Dhabi for two nights on our way back to Australia. The hotel is in a great location near The Corniche and a number of major shopping malls, and only a short (and cheap) cab ride to the major sites.

The staff were very helpful, and the room was clean and well presented. The facilities of the hotel were particularly good, especially the gym, spa and pool. As we were there during Ramadan, a number of the onsite restaurants were closed however we could still order room service.

We definitely recommend this hotel, and would stay here again if we visited Abu Dhabi.
