The hotel is considered one of the older hotels in Abu Dhabi however, it does not show any signs of tiredness or fatigue. On the contrary, in our experience the hotel appeared to operate like a well-oiled machine. The fact we stayed during a public holiday period when the hotel was fully occupied further amplified the efficiency with which the hotel functioned.
Our check in was seamless and we found our room to be well furnished, roomy and well maintained. The hotel houses a number of restaurants with varying cuisines. We dined at the Italian restaurant that was particularly good, and finished the evening at the lively jazz bar. The room service is efficient and the hotel arranged a baby sitter, who arrived on time and informed us when baby would not settle which we found reassuring.
The beach and pool area is accessed via an underpass that travels beneath the main road adjacent to the hotel. Some might find this an inconvenience considering the hotel does not sit directly on the beach, but the distance is minor and a lazy stroll carries you to your sunbed. If you have children they can occupy themselves at the water slides at the family pool area.
The pool was well maintained and life guards vigilant and extremely well equipped to oversee the busy pool area, whilst proactively dealing with situations to ensure the safety and enjoyment for all. If you are child free, you can relax at the adult pool.
Although we did not use the gym it is modern and well equipped, and the children’s play room was well maintained.
Breakfast was a little hectic, but and in light of the high occupancy it was sufficiently composed to run relatively smoothly.
The real match-winner for this hotel is the manner of the staff and their ability to go above and beyond customary expectations. Every encounter with a staff member was met with a smiling face and the intent to please
