“Great food, great service, great hotel”
Reviewed 8 August 2012

This was our first time in Abu Dhabi, having normally been to Dubai and we would certainly return. We went simply to 'chill out' and relax.

An excellent hotel in all respects. Even the basic rooms are very clean ,well appointed and have TV, Phone, internet etc. Several different restaurants to choose from - we had intended to eat in a different one every night but liked Pregos so much we ended going back there most evenings. Food not expensive for this level of hotel.

The hotel is right next to the mall - you can access the mall directly from the hotel. However, despite its title, the hotel does not have much of a beach, as it is not on the Corniche but round the corner. Having said that, the pool is superb.

What makes this hotel stand out is the level of service and friendly attitude of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble - you only had to ask and it was done. Despite the fact that it is a big 'business' hotel, we did not find it impersonal and the staff ensured they knew your name from the moment you walked in. Would definitiely return!

This time when i was in AD, i needed a place close to Sowwah island (Al-Maryah island) and there was nothing closer than Beach Rotana which happens to be just at the exit of the island. The location of this hotel is its biggest plus, its adjacent to Abu Dhabi Mall. In fact there is an entrance to the mall from within the hotel which makes the mall part of an extended hotel experience.
The service is an absolute delight. I made a call a day before my check in to request an early check in which they conveyed would be confirmed only upon my arrival but was likely to be taken on priority as i was to stay for 15 days. When i arrived at 8 in the morning, i got the early check in without needing to mention it at the reception. All through my stay of 15 days, i felt that all my requirements was just a call away to the room service. Smiling and professional staff is consistent with what one would expect at the top end of the market.
The hotel has a good gym and great tennis courts (flood lit). It has an amazing infinity edge pool and a bar attached with it.The hotel also has apparently one of the best spa in town which i couldnt get to use.
The other highlight of the hotel is its food option. It has some of the best restaurant of the city - Finz for seafood and Benihanna for American Japanese are my personal favorites that i had visited even on my previous visits to the city. Trader's Vic and Rodeo Grill are great as well. There are another half a dozen restaurant which includes Indian, Italian, German and a buffet place. A selection from these restaurant can be ordered in the room. There is also a round the clock menu for the room service. Breakfast in the room provides the standard continental, american and arabic options. The food court in the adjacent Abu Dhabi mall also gives some additional option for a quick bite.
I had a pleasant stay for 15 days. Construction in the Sowwah island has surely affected the view outside but that view is so contemporary in a way for Abu Dhabi which is projecting this place as the new central district of AD.
The only negative i could think of was the sound proofing in the room which could have been better. All in all a great experience.

I only spent one night at the Beach Rotana but in that time I was very impressed with the service and the high standard of the rooms. They were very comfortable and had everything anyone would need. The only thing I would say is that its disappointing having to pay for internet in your room. I think every hotel should have free internet access!

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.

The Beach Rotana is a great quality, excellent value hotel and is a perfect base for a stay in Abu Dhabi. We stayed 3 nights and with the sweltering weather, spent more time at the hotel than one usually should on holiday. With that said, I'm glad this was the case at the Beach Rotana.

The rooms were clean, luxurious, comfortable and modern. The service was always aiming to please. The food was good quality (we ate at the Italian place which was outstanding). The outdoor pool was divine. The location is ok, whilst not close to much, it is centrally located for sightseeing. The Mall next door has good shopping and almost anything one needs.

Would highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Abu Dhabi.

Room Tip: We flew with Etihad, which at the time of booking, had a free upgrade deal with the hotel. The hotel...
