Reviewed 22 February 2012

A very comfortable Hotel with very kind personal. There could be a little more lights in the room. I had sometimes problems with reading because of the light. The second critic-point ist the phone-connection. Unfortunatly there is no direkt phone-connection, so I hadn`t the oppertunitiy to call someone without operator. My family tried many times to call me from germany and it was a problem. most of the time nobody picked up the phone in operatingroom to connect them with me.

I stayed at the Beach Rotana with a group on business and from checkin forward had a poor experience. We were made to check in as a group and the front desk collected all our passports and held them - instead of delivering them to our rooms, after over an hour I finally had to go to the desk to retrieve it. Tried to have dinner in two of the hotel restaurants and was turned away from both - even though one had many tables open. I don't usually jump to this conclusion, but began to feel I was being brushed aside because I was a single woman - some of my female colleagues later mentioned the same thing. There were also small but annoying problems - like delivering a bottle of beer to my room with a broken bottle opener. Reviewers who commented on the construction site across from the beach have a good point - though to be fair that is a problem at several Abu Dhabi hotels. But it certainly didn't improve an already poor experience.

First time at this hotel and we were very impressed with the service, cleanliness and especially the food at breakfast - superb choice. The in-house restaurants were expensive but then a couple are 2 & 3 * Michelin restaurants and you get what you pay for. There are plenty of reasonable priced restaurants nearby though. The hotel arranged a very good driver and car to take us and collect us from the 2 England cricket matches about a 20 min drive away. Nice pool and beach area with life guards. Very happy to recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: The classic was fine.

Great choice for a hotel in Abu Dhabi: service is attentive, food is very good, incredible range of restaurants on site, conveniently located to mall (banks), nicely furnished, fantastic beds, good bathrooms, pool, a "beach," and more. Location is only average though there is likely no excellent location in Abu Dhabi because construction is everywhere and there is little clustering of "walkable" sites. There is really no where to walk to nearby, with the exception of the mall (reached by a connecting indoor corridor). That said, the hotel is in as good a place as any and has created its own conveniences (restaurants, adjacent mall), with the added bonus of having its own "beach." The concierge desk is extremely helpful and the club lounge is worth the extra cost of the room IF you take advantage of the amenities it has to offer. The value probably deserves an excellent based on comparative costs in UAE, but it's hard to support the high cost when we are not paid as an Emirati.

Room Tip: Be sure to book a Club Level Room - we stayed on 20th floor with nice views. Be sure to ask for non...

Great place to stay (highly motivated friendly staff and good quality of service - room & restaurants) with a direct link to the Abu Dhabi Mall.
Was not the last time there.

Lovely hotel...5 star all the way.

From the moment you arrive you are treated like royalty.

We stayed for one night only on our way back from 7 weeks in Europe so we were a little tired upon arrival. The heat in Abu Dhabi in September is unbearable...do not travel in their summer you wont leave your hotel. We went shopping in the attached shopping centre then tried to venture out....it is virtually impossible. I don't know how people live there.

I'm sure in their winter it would be ok.

The hotel was exceptionally clean, large and comfy bed and great pressure in shower.

Many restaurants - although we ate in the shopping ctr
