“Grand and Opulent”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

This is a great hotel. The staff are, without exception, the most helpful, courteous and friendly people I have come across. The hotel itself is a large, grand, beautiful establishment. Our "room" was an experience in itself. Everything is opulent but functional. The pools and grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. We ate in five of the restaurants and in every case the quality of the food was rather disappointing. They really should look seriously at this area so that the catering matches the excellence of everything else.

Room Tip: Some rooms are a very long way from the restaurants, reception etc.

This is an amazing hotel. Yes it's very grand and opulent but the decor is very tasteful and not at all brash. The room and all the facilities were top rate and the staff all very pleasant and helpful.

Our only 'niggle' was the food. We mainly dined in the main restaurant - the quality and variety of the buffet was not to the standard that one expects of a 5 star hotel. We also dined at the recently opened Emirati restaurant - the food was good but unfortunately the service was disappointingly slow given that the restaurant was almost empty! We also found that the food was somewhat overpriced compared to other 5 star hotels in the U.A.E

Overall, this was a very pleasant spring break and we were made to feel very welcome at the Emirates Palace. We will certainly return to Abu Dhabi.

Room Tip: We stayed in a 'Diamond' room and was worth the extra cost.

I am going to keep this review short and simple, there are no words to fully describe this gem of a hotel. It is beautiful inside and out, the room( we had booked the pearl room with pool/sea view) was very big and luxurious. Our butler met us once we arrived to our room, explained to us where and how everything works and was available to us through out the day. The pool areas where gorgeous and the beach was amazing. We had originally booked to spend our entire stay in Dubai but decided to visit Abu Dhabi, Emirates Palace at the last minute, and untill now are sooo sad that we could not spend enough time to fully enjoy it.

The visit to Emirates Palace seems like a normal visit to a luxury hotel filled with big and small surprises. The Emirates Palace is a luxury, five star hotel located in the United Arab Emirates. The Hotel produces huge grounds and a beach overlooking the Persian Gulf.
Even after four years in the Emirates I was amazed at the beauty of the hotel. I was pleased about the fact that the usually sunny weather enables the visitor to play football and visit the beach day and night, meanwhile I was delighted at the small Aqua-park offered FOR FREE!!!
After such an afternoon spent outside Emirates palace provides luxury, very comfortable beds and a widescreen TV with many English and American channels.
For families I would reccomend to buy the provided double room. However the Hotel is not just a hotel for visitors, it has small cafes (with coffee sprinkled with golden dust), and excellent buffet with a variety of dishes Emirates Palace also has certain days when entertainment is the day's programme.
