“This hotel has everything”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

We stayed at Alraha for 2weeks and it was fantastic. The service at breakfast was second to none and a special word of thanks to Chef Min and our waiter Jon, the service from these 2 especially was fantastic.
I cannot review this hotel without mentioning the incredible Italian couple band that play every night in the black Pearl, they are easily the best 2 piece band that we have ever heard and have thousands of songs in their repateur.
Mr Lee at reception was also very professional in all his dealings with us.
We have stayed in Emirates Palace for last 2 years but this has replaced it now for both value and entertainment.
We will be coming back to this hotel for many years to come.

We didn't stay here but we spent our last dinner in Abu Dhabi at this hotel. We had dinner by the pool at the Pool cafe and what an amazing place this is. Entry is gorgeous, there was a lady playing a harp which was lovely people were buzzing around, there was also entertainment by the pool and the bar shuts at 12pm. We had a simple pool menu just burgers n kebabs and also had sheesh a. Food was yummy. The pool is very inviting and there is a large children's play area in the pool. The view of the "Headquarters building" (I call it the Coin building) is awesome...so close!

The room, a gulf junior suite, was absolutely perfect. The staff were always helpful and attentive. The facility was perfectly located for the F1 race and if one was looking for a hotel close to the airport or the Ferrari World.

The facility also has some very good food as well as a liquor store. Directly connected was also a small mall with a couple restaurants. Everything one could want for a getaway.

Room Tip: Gulf Junior Suite

This property was recommended by ny business client, but when we went as a family and my mother in law the experience was amazing , Big rooms nice ambience huge pool area with kids splash pool and a private beach to relax. Perfect place to go and relax.. lovely food for non vegeterians not many options for veg people.. but u have mall next to hotel and good part is the both are interconnected.
Its good value for money and with all amenities to relax and enjoy-- good for family.

Room Tip: Facing the pool

We had a fabulous 3 days here and just about everything was perfect. We arrived early and the receptionist arranged for the room to be made up early which was a Godsend. We also had a late check-out at no extra charge. The staff were so helpful from the receptionist right to the house-keeping to the valet staff. The food choice was excellent and was something different on the buffet each day. The pool area is fantastic and the staff around the pool very helpful. All in all I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 4th floor and although we weren't facing the pool the view was still lovely as...

Fantastic hotel and although a fair way from downtown Abu Dhabi, it is very close to the airport and Yas Marina for the F1 (taxi to Yas Marina Circuit about £5 each way), which was the purpose of the trip. Food and service were fantastic, and the hotel was spotless throughout. Pool area and bars were great also. The air con in the room was very efficient, and also silent - so many hotels have noisy aircon! Would recommend this hotel and would love to return.
