“F1 Fenzy”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

We stayed here during the Grand Prix so overall it's a busy place for most hotels, I knew the location so thought it would be ideally located and it didn't seem too overly pricey. Our room was in the new wing of the hotel which at the time was still being maintained / finished. However it's very well presented and the huge bathroom and shower in our bathroom was just heavenly. Overall I liked the room, however..........the mile walk there with no lifts working near our room was a real pain.
The staff at the pool bar were completely ineffectual, we waited over an hour for a simple sandwich and a drink and they weren't even busy! The room service was terrible and quite expensive for what we got! Plus the staff would just not leave us alone, always knocking on the door, turning down the bed, cleaning or repairing outside your room, I could go on but it felt quite disruptive.
On the whole the staff ruined it for me and my husband it just wasn't relaxing at all! I probably wouldn't recommend this for most of the year but it serviced a purpose and wasn't too crazily priced for the Grand Prix.

Room Tip: The new wing has nicer rooms but it's quite a trek from the main entrance.

An early check in and 4pm check out was a real bonus.Parking / valet was free.
The hotel staff are very efficient and extremely helpful.
I booked through Travago and was given a very dark room overlooking the second floor roof. Avoid the 300 numbered rooms.
I had previously stayed in 4 other hotels in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Apart from the Beach Hotel, wi-fi was free in all hotels. Surely the hotel management must realise that 90 Dhs. a day for wi-fi access is a real foolish move. Perhaps they still view wi-fi as a profit centre ! Not a service to guests !

Room Tip: Entrance to AD Mall is close to Pregos ( Italian restaurant ). Definately worth a visit.
