“Best Birthday Ever!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

My Husband and I normally stay in Dubai but as this was a short stay we opted for a closer Hotel as we fly from Dublin to Abu Dhabi Direct.From the word "Go" the staff were amazing....I could not fault one member of staff.Rooms whilst a bit on the small side were immaculate and clean sheets every day with plenty of toiletries.The Club Lounge was open all day for light snacks,and in the evening a selection of wines and spirits were served from 6-8pm......we chose to have these beside the Cigar Lounge which was much nicer and had Bruno providing lovely music.We had the Club deal and I would strongly recommend this.....Breakfast was a pure feast and set one up for the day.....We will be back,pools and beach options and great food,variety and Room Service was fantastic and reasonable.Thank you all fro making it the Best Birthday ever!!!

Room Tip: Our room was small,it was a corner one and wardrobe space was tiny to say the least.Balcony should n...

I have visited Abu Dhabi a number of times and whilst I have visited most of the better hotels I always feel at home when I come to the Sheraton. The pool isn't the largest and the "beach" isn't the best but the ambiance adds to a very relaxed atmosphere.
Any good pool bar is only as good as the staff and Samil and the lads at the Sheraton make it what it is. They even remembered my drink even though I hadn't been for over 6 months. Yes the St Regis has a great beach and the Fairmont and Intercontinental are good but for me a trip to Abu Dhabi wouldn't be complete without a day spent at the Sheraton beach.

Room Tip: The food served by the pool is always freshly cooked and well presented

Just returned yesterday from a perfect weeks stay at the Sheraton, firstly after reading some of the slightly mean, negative comments before running the place down on here these people should have done a bit more hotel research prior to booking!.
On arrival, check in was fast, friendly and efficient, luggage was taken to our room very quickly, we were staying in an executive suite which was big,not huge but ample for me, my husband and 2 children, room was spotlessly clean not a speck of dust anywhere, gorgeous big comfortable bed, this style suite is usually based on 2 persons sharing as only one bed so we requested the extra beds for the kids which were a fold out style but these came with a luxury, thick mattress. TV wasn't a great picture and a bit fuzzy but hey, we don't go on holiday to sit in the room all day so not an issue!.
Ok this hotel isn't the newest, high rise, bling bling hotel in the region but as I mentioned before the negative reviewers should have researched and been aware of this this right?..
what we had was excellent value,spotlessly clean well maintained hotel, an excellent 5 star service from each and every one of the wonderful Sheraton staff, they are a huge credit to the hotel!, and thankyou to the kind member of the concierge (can't remember his name) who made several attempts to help us find our camera which my husband lost in a taxi.. food was superb, pools and surrounding areas were kept extremely clean and very well lifeguarded.
As for the beach area it isn't huge, it's a man made lagoon, there is no tide or waves so the water can become a little mucky (not polluted) in the afternoon, staff do keep it as clean as possible,very warm to swim in and safe for children. we were fully aware of the construction nearby before travelling, whilst it may bother some it didn't bother us at all, it wasn't even very loud. To be honest it would be difficult to find a hotel without construction nearby in Abu Dhabi, it's everywhere!.
Didn't use the gym, nightclub or spa facilities so cannot comment.
All in all we had an excellent time, the weather was gorgeous, not a cloud in the sky, I have paid more money to stay in European resorts at this time of year (UK schools half term) and had rain all week!, now I know where I'l be going in the future and already looking into going back.

Room Tip: try to upgrade to a suite, hotels.com who we booked with do some great deals!

We stayed during Ramadan and it was one of the few hotels where the restaurants served alcohol in the evening. Comfortable beds and nice stay. Good Mexican Restaurant in the hotel! Nice to have a small water slide for the kids.

The hotel is still one of the landmarks of Abu Dhabi. Human scale it is one of the older hotels, but none the worse for that. There are a good variety of restaurants and bars in the hotel including a Mexican restaurant and a tapas bar, with a British pub and a cigar bar. It has a private beach which it was able to keep when the coast was moved - it is now a bay.

Recently the hotel has been plagued with surrounding building works. These are mostly over now and the roads at least are finished. This makes it easier to get to the hotel, but harder to get a taxi from the hotel! There are two residential tower blocks being built on the coastal side of the hotel. The main works are done now and they are getting closer to completion so the noise has reduced.

There is a club lounge at the hotel - but I would not pay extra for it. It is small and limited and tends to be overrun by families with small children.

Breakfast is substantial and buffet style, but one of the better ones. The rooms are generally pretty good with everything that you would need.

Room Tip: i had a road side room but did not experience noise from there - just other guests!

We arrived back home on the 13th oct after a 8 night stop. check in was hassle free and quick which was great at 1.50am. the room might seem small for some peoples taste but was fine for our needs, all the staff were friendly and helpfull. the pool area was lovely to relax around as was the lagoon area which we had no trouble getting a lounger. We ate at the mexican which was great and also the pub which had a good atmosphere. The cakes in the foyer cafe are a must they are stunning and so tasty. All in all i would have no qualms in staying at the sheraton again, we had a really enjoyable time.

Room Tip: ask for room at the back overlooking the pool, the noise can be loud from the road at night at the f...

It is a beautiful hotel to stay. A little old, but very well maintained. Located close to the Marina Mall, the only decent shopping mall in Abu Dhabi. Hotel is located about 30 minutes from airport.

The only downside to this place is the beach. It is a smaller area now, because of all the construction buildings surrounding the beach. Water is clean and very salty. My skin had an immediate reaction within minutes of entering the water.

The hospitality is great. Everyone was friendly, from the doorman to housekeeping.

Room service serves good food, but huge serving.
