“A good recommendation.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

We opted for the Al Raha beach as it had been recommended to us by an old work mate. Our soul intention whilst here for a 3 day stop over en route to Vietnam was to basically chill out. The hotel is not far from the airport and is several miles from the City Centre. Don't let this put you off. Taxis are really cheap and metered.
Check in was very quick and we stayed in a room on the 3rd floor overlooking the pool and beach. The room was a good size with a large bathroom and had tea/coffee making facilities. As we had arrived late we had the room service and both ordered a biriani. This was delivered within 20 minutes and was excellent and plentiful.
Breakfast is served in the restaurant by reception and was extensive. A good choice of local food as well as food catering for people all over the world.. The staff in the restaurant were very helpful.
The hotel is attached to a small mall. This has a small number of restaurants which were of a good standard. There is also a small supermarket in the Mall which has a hot food counter if you want a snack for lunch.
The Hotel is a short taxi ride from Yas Island.
Overall we were delighted with this hotel and would stay there again.

No detail is left unattended to when you are a guest at Al Raha Beach Resort. We are long term expats and have travelled widely. This was by far the best hotel we have stayed at in terms of being treated like a valued guest. Fresh flowers and fruit were brought to our room upon arrival. The turn-down service even included a rose petal strewn bed!

We loved everything about this hotel. It is opulence at a reasonable price. A rare combination in this part of the world, where you would normally expect to pay double what we paid for this type of attention and quality.

Went for a short break from winter at the Al Raja with my wife and two daughters. The whole family liked our spacious room, excellent service, private beaches, decent pool and the food. The staff went well out of their way to take care of us, giving my wife and I a free upgrade to a better room, bringing us special requests for food and telling us where to go in Abu Dhabi. We took full board and were completely satisfied with the meals, the food was not too fancy, lots of fresh fruit and vegetables with plenty of Asian plus local dishes. There is a small shopping center next to the hotel, also handy. Why not a five? Because it's next to a highway (not at all noticeable from the hotel and the beach but still there) and the price is high for the location some distance from downtown and there is a sandy strip across from the beach rather than the open sea. But it is well worth a week in the sun. We preferred Abu Dhabi to Dubai; it seems more like a real city. Enough tourist stuff to do and plenty of beaches. Have fun!

Room Tip: All ocean view rooms are good...non ocean view less so facing the highway.
