We spent 5 nights at this hotel and we are overall satisfied as we booked few months in advance and managed to get a reasonably good rate.
We arrived quite late, around 11pm and we had to wait 20 min before we finally managed to check in and once we did our room was not ready, so they gave us instead a twin room (we had booked a superior king room), but we were jet lagged and far too tired to argue, all we needed was a bed, so fair enough.
Staff was very welcoming and kind, always doing their best to meet our need.
The buffet breakfast offered a good variety of cakes, pastries, bread, fruits, and cooked food...pity for the coffee, which was the kind you usually get in a regular cafeteria. I expect real coffee in a 5* hotel.
Location is good, close to all the main attractions that Abu Dhabi offers.
Gym is fine, but the pool is rather small, okay if you only like to take a dip but not for swimming. Sauna is also not bad, but the steam room is terrible, smelt of damp and it looks old.
In terms of restaurants, we never ate there because there are many other much nicer restaurant in Abu Dhabi. Once we tried to go to Marrakesh (it's their Moroccan restaurant) but it was so cold (for the air conditioning), smoky (people smoking in there) and loud (the live music) inside that we quickly went out!
We rented a car from Abu Dhabi airport, however the hotel offers a free shuttle to the beach and one of the main mall.
Internet connection is slow and expensive!
Having said all that if you book in advance and get a discounted rate this hotel is for a good value for money, however, if you are looking to treat yourself go somewhere else.
