“Fantastic hotel (but not a beach)”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

We travelled here in March 2014. The hotel is beautiful, very clean and very helpful staff. However, if you stay here be mindful that the word 'beach' can be very deceiving. It's a small, man-made area which is OK but if you want a beach resort you will be disappointed.
The evening buffet is delicious and the Fins restaurant is really nice and worth a visit.

Stayed here for 3 nights en route home from Australia to break up the journey. It is quite a luxurious Hotel with very good service which is par for the course of a 5 star hotel , however the name is a bit misleading . The only beach is man made ,a stretch of 100 metres of sand next to the hotel gardens ! The pool nearby is lovely , we were supposedly upgraded to a balcony room with a view , but unless you class a multi storey hospital next to a few building sites with tower cranes as a view then I think we were a bit misled . The food is excellent , both the breakfast buffet and dinner and the staff very attentive , shame about the location .

A lovely hotel, great buffet breakfasts, very friendly staff whom couldn't do more to make you have a good enjoyable stay. The only set back is the building work ongoing around the hotel, it's loud and it starts early however the hotel can't do much about this, it's Abu Dhabi and it's expanding..... around the hotel!

This is a very late review - we stayed here in June 2013 and can thoroughly recommend the Beach Rotana Hotel. We stayed for three nights and even though Abu Dhabi is very hot at that time of year the amenities in the hotel mean that you can stay out of the heat if you want to. It is connected to a large shopping mall so you don't need to go outside if you don't want to - but that would be a mistake as you would be missing a fantastic experience. The rooms are beautiful and the staff members are all very friendly and speak very good English - they even had a birthday cake delivered to our room for my husband's 70th birthday - obviously they must have arranged this when they saw his date of birth on his passport. We did venture out of the hotel - on the "Hop on Hop off" bus and also they one (1) hour boat trip - which were both fantastic.

We went here as part of our honeymoon. We had booked a suite in the Club level which was gorgeous. Our room included access to the VIP lounge and boy, the luxury!
Daily breakfast buffet daily afternoon tea incl scones sandwiches and little cakes (whichever ere different every day) and evening canapés followed by 'happy hour'. This was far more civilised than it sounds- it meant that all alcoholic beverages were free (non-alcoholic beverages are free throughout the day).

The hotel also has a fantastic pool and lounging area with plenty of shade should you wish. There's tennis, wellness centre and more. Highly recommended if you wanted to pamper yourself!

Good rooms, location and very helpful staff. Only two drawbacks, the AC in the room only seemed to be on or off, no matter what temperature I set it to it just kept on getting cooler and cooler. The internet access is very very expensive at 90 AED a day I assume they think companies usually pay and you don't even get free WiFi in the lobby.

My first Rotana experience was not great and not bad at the same time. Excellent location, near malls and coffee shops, great food, and wonderful staff. I feel so at home. ^_^

The beach, however, is not as good as I expected. And I find the hotel hallways creepy. Just go check it for yourself.
