We stayed 1 night in Deluxe Gulf View Room
The hotel is located just outside Abu Dhabi's (15 min by car to Corniche Road ). This can be a plus if you want to stay away from the city but have it at easy reach.
The Beach is ok with quite low quality sand and some weird constructions on the horizon (there is basically some kind of a wall about 50 m into sea... ) Infinity pool is big hoever theres no feel of "infinity" thanks to mentioned wall in the horizon :) Pool bar is small and even though it was not busy we couldn't find a free space and we had too get out of the pool to order drinks.
Room was very nice with the view on the sea. It was modern and very comfortable with beautiful bathroom.
Staff varied from super friendly and attentive to useless.
The reception lady - Honey was fantastic as was most of the staff. Pool bar guys seem to be slow and not very approachable.
The hotel has also indoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi which is very nice. Sauna and steam room are also very good quality. There is squash court and gym and guest disposal too and they looked good.
We had a meal at Azur restaurant and we enjoyed the romantic outdoor setting in the evening. Service was great and food delicious.
Hotel breakfast was a decent buffet with attentive staff.
I would recommend this hotel for a short stay . If you planing a longer vacation there are perhaps other options in the area.
