We stayed at the suite hotel side of the Beach Rotana. Staff were very friendly and professional. The hotel is very convenient to downtown Abu Dhabi, and is located attached to a large shopping mall.
The hotel has a beach club which is quite small, but has a large pool with bar. The beach club manager, Phil, was very friendly and helpful.
We liked it so much, my wife stayed at the hotel on her way back to the USA and was very happy with the service, since her credit card had expired while traveling and the staff made alternate payment arrangements for her. The hotel reservations office is VERY responsive and insured she had an airport transfer reserved and late checkout.More
