“FANTASTIC PROPERTY... and Epitome of Luxury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2010

This was our second stay at this property.

The Beach Rotana is conveniently located in Abu Dhabi, UAE and well
placed for shopoholics. Abu Dhabi Mall is accessible from the hotel and has 100s of designer label shops and top notch jewelry boutiques. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the staff, subsequently the management are really good at what they do, hospitality business.

The entrance is very lovely and greeting is top dollar. The lobby is elegant, welcoming and friendly.

Front desk staff are very caring and certainly respect their guests and listen to their needs. For example, they ask you if you would like a late
check out and do not charge extra, knowing that you might be catching
a late flight. Well, within limits of course :-)

We were staying in Tower. Our room was divine and came with a balcony. Huge attention is given to the smallest detail, fresh flowers, fruit, complimentary bottled drinking water, bathroom toiletries, rainshower and Jacuzzi bath in a marbled surrounding are few of them.

Hotel amenities come no better than the spa/gym/pools and beach front.
The pool is outdoor and and large enough not to feel crowded. You can finish off your swim at the 'swim-to-bar' and be served your favorite drink without moving a step.

The breakfast was as you would expect from 5 star luxury hotel and evening dinners were something not to be forgotten. Oysters, large shrimps, beef stakes, sushi, sashimi, salmon in abundance, BBQs, garnishes, soups, large fresh baked bread selections and vegetarian option, creatively presented dessert counters were simply simply out of this world.

Room service was quick, considering the size of this hotel. Everybody, without an exception were doing everything to please us. And, gosh, we were PLEASED that we chose this hotel, again.

Kids playground and pool are well designed. Both are under the tent. The only thing about the playground is that you don't want your kid to play there more than 10 minutes as it is very hot. I rather mine have fun in the water. Have a look at the photos pls. We also saw an indoor playground with aircon and plenty toys, but we didn't use it.

This time we only used buffet restaurant as we were staying on HB basis. We have been in other restaurants last year and i remember we were well pleased with Fitz.

It's an excellent spot and not an expensive choice at all. It is the epitome of luxury and definitely worth grabbing a stay while mingling and swimming with rich and lovely people!

Go, see, stay and most importantly, enjoy! Best x

Really classy interior and great staff..Ashok being especially helpful at the desk. The beach is the only weak point at this excellent hotel. I think if there were less cranes to look at on the opposing island, it would have been more enjoyable,but in the longer term when construction is complete I'm not sure if it can be called a beach hotel anymore.Also,as with most five star hotels in the world, there should be free wi-fi access.I think this would make it more attractive to business clientele.

Stayed in the Club Rotana room with access to the club lounge and found the hotel, facilities and the staff exceptional. Club Lounge team are attentive and nothing is too much trouble. Hotel is linked to the largest shopping Mall and after spending time on the hotel private beach you have an array of different hotel restaurants and the mall to cater for your needs. Beach is clean and grounds are well looked after. Fully rate this hotel for a few days in Abu Dhabi whether your on business or passing through.

As nearly everyone has said the hotel and staff are excellent, a couple of little niggles were the “beach” which was actually a strip of sand on a narrow internal waterway facing a massive building site, the lack of any refreshments around the pool (due to Ramadan) was hard in 40degree plus temps and strangest thing was the pool lifeguards who throughout our visit were constantly blowing their whistles and telling people off at the first sign of anyone enjoying themselves in the pool….it was quite bizarre!
A great business hotel or stop over hotel for a night or two.

Everything is excellent - pitty they build a new highway intersection in front of the hotel! The beach is now a small sea strip. In the middle of the city, very convinient the access to the attached mall. Excellent food in all restaurants, opulent breakfast. A dream (at a thin sea strip)
