“Whims anticipated”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

Dreb from the elite lounge was very sweet. Our mom favored cantaloupes over honeydew. Dreb made sure our mom had a bowl of sweet honeydew with her breakfast every time she went up there. Thank you for making our mom happy Dreb.

First off, the hotel is nice, and so is the staff.

The beach/pool area is awesome, and our son loved the two water slides.
We stayed there in mid January, the hotel and pools were pretty much empty during weekdays,
not more than 10 people around the pool, and in the sun chairs.
Only drawback would be the shadow cast by the new sky scraper being built near the intersection, which have a moving shadow over the pool area for about one hour, around lunch time (again, in Jan).
There's also a substantial amount of bird poo on the walkways around the restroom area (located underneath the water slide), due to a large family of pea cocks living at the back of the pool/beach club entrance :D

The executive lounge was nice, the breakfast tasty. The staff was also very friendly to our son, brought him hot chocolate every morning at breakfast.

The only draw backs would be the slightly worn rooms, the vicinity of Corniche road (some people might be disturbed by the noise coming from the traffic), and the smoking allowed inside parts of the hotel.

The hotel entrance can also get crowded during some evenings, because of the on property jazz club, this also applies to the valet service (free of charge for hotel guests).

All in all, I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends, as long as you don't mind the smoking.

We arrived early morning after a long flight. Our daughter and family was already there and was upgraded to the executive floor. When we said at reception that we would like to have our room near to our family they upgraded us immediately. Privileges of the executive floor includes the use of the Exec.Lounge that provides tea, coffee, beer and wine together with savory and sweet finger food most of the day. The staff did their best to make our stay pleasant. The room was large, spotlessly clean and everything worked. When air-conditioning stopped it was attended to in ten minutes. There are several restaurants, a bit pricey but excellent quality of food and attentive service catering to both Local and European tastes. In the Lebanese restaurant at the entrance lobby there is belly dancing performance of the highest quality. There is also a wide choice of quality food and drinks that is sometimes lacking in other restaurants with floor shows.
The public places are comfortable and Wi-Fi is free in some areas. In the rooms it is charged. The view on the Corniche side of the building overlooks a beautiful bay. All in all it is a nice hotel for the family to have a good time. However there may be some problems in the rooms for the disabled travelers. There is a marked lack of handles at the bath to assist getting in and out. The fixed shower head also not too convenient.
The only draw back of the hotel that there is a dual carriageway between the hotel and the Hiltonia private beach. It is not a long walk by an underpass but in 36 degrees of heat and having walking difficulties it is less than convenient. Anybody with walking impediments may have a problem.
On the beach there are comfortable sunbeds and towels are provided. However the shore and sea bed is very stony and it is easy to hurt one's foot. There are several swimming pools and beach restaurants of excellent quality of food and service. The restaurants at the beach club are open late in the evenings and several differently flavored shisha is available.
The grandsons, parents and grandparents warmly recommend this hotel even in the busy Easter period.

Room Tip: Try to get upgraded to the Executive Floor. If you have a choice ask for the Corniche side. There is...

This is a smaller and older hotel compared to others in AUH, but with lots of charm and character. The employees are the most genuine service minded and always smiling that we have ever met during all our stays in different hotels around the world.
It’s perfectly located on the Corniche with easy access to Hiltonia beach club via an underpass, where you find the beach with comfortably sun beds, pools, spa, bars, restaurants etc. Bahardeen and the other guys in Coconut beach bar will make sure you get things the way you like it, if you like I prefer salad instead of fries with the lunch they always fix it for you without any problems.
The hotel has a lot of restaurants to choose from but our absolutely favorite is Bocca, with the best Italian food in AUH. When you arrive there lovely Simona will welcome you with here wonderful charm and laugh.
If you stay at the Executive floor you will have access to the lounge and the pleasure to meet Elsa, Dreb and Raju that will serve you with a smile regardless if it’s for breakfast or evening drink.
The rooms are of a good size and have everything you need. The man who cleaned on 10th floor “new” wing did make sure that the room always was cleaned and greeted us with a big smile every time we meet him.
I will also say thank you to Sathya and Alexander in the reception and off course all the others that once again made our visit a wonderful and pleasant stay.
This was the sixth time we stayed at Hilton AUH, but definitely not the last one.

I have been travelling to Abu Dhabi for over 10 years. The Hilton is one of the oldest hotels and there are certainly more modern and luxurious hotels on offer. But the Hilton has character, the best beach club, some of the best restaurants and their staff give the best service.
