I stayed in this hotel for one night the receptionist suggest to get the suite instead of regular room because of the discount on the suite rate but it wasn't that good and i think its over priced .. Although the breakfast was excellent and a lot of choices .

This is newly opened bar restaurant in the Al Raha Beach Hotel Abu Dhabi. It is the sister outlet for the Dubai bar restaurant of the same name. The interior is large and well decorated but gets very full at the weekend. Thursday / Friday. Reasonable selection of beers and a modest menu. I have vested the place twice, once on a Friday evening ... Manic! And once mid week, much quieter. The service was poor but probably due to the fact the venue had only been open a week. The food was decidedly average and Luke warm on arrival. Staff definitely need to buck up but well located if you live out of town and handy for many residents in Al Raha area.

we go to resort to relax and enjoy our stay but the reservation staff is so pathetic and non organized that you start your holiday with an argument at the check in desk!!!
inspite of the fact i had email confirmation on reservation dates as 31st and 1st june they said that the booking is made for next week and make the guest wait for almost 30 to 35 mins just arguing on the issue.
post lot of argument they say they will still arrange for our stay for the said nights as doing us a big favor!!
what an awful hospitality????
i totally do not recommend this

Arrived at the hotel at 8 a.m. on Friday 16th May check in no problems staff very good and room ready in new wing on 3rd floor. The room offered excellent facilities with a lovely sea view from the generous sized balcony. After unpacking we were by the side of the pool by 10.30 a.m. and the lifeguard found us 2 beds with no problem even though it was Friday very busy family day at the hotel what a good start to our holiday. We stayed on an all inclusive basis which was very good value for money with meals taken in the Sevilla restaurant but an allowance given if you chose to eat in one of the other restaurants. Food quality was excellent in this restaurant however we did eat at the Piscine one evening (beachside) I had steak and my wife fish and both were superb. The Black Pearl Bar is very nice for an evening drink.
The beach is very clean good beds and never crowded.
One thing I would point out is you will notice a marked contrast from weekdays to a Friday when it does get very busy with families and plenty of birthday parties however this didn't bother us.
Location is good easy to get to Yas Island with all it offers
Last thing but probably one of the most important the staff without exception were excellent and made a wonderful contribution to making our 10 days so enjoyable.

Room Tip: Higher floor for better views would also recommend sea view

Going on holiday is something we all look forward to and we all want to have a great time and enjoy ourselves, well my wife and I did a two week trip to Dubai and this was just one of the hotels where we stayed, it was only for 4 nights and just with breakfast.

The first impression from the hotel was going through the main entrance and then seeing what was waiting for us, I must say it was quite amazing what we saw, ok it was at 22:00hrs but nevertheless it was worth seeing.

We took an extra room because we wanted two beds and not just one king size bed, this is mainly to do with the fact that we both need room when we are asleep, seeing that one does move around a lot during the night  anyway we got a very nice room, plenty of space and two big beds.

It was also very amazing how quite things were, we never heard a single sound from outside our room, this was something which we both found very good, I take it you have all had hotels were you hear all sorts of noises coming from somewhere else, but in this hotel nothing.
So after a good night’s sleep we were both very hungry and couldn’t wait to see what the breakfast was like, so off we went and we found the pace where believe me enough food was laid out and no one should have any reason to moan about something here, the choice you have from so many different things is just what you want on holiday, it was great and so we took our breakfast outside, which was very nice.

After breakfast we just wanted to find a quiet place to relax still be tired from the long trip to Dubai, we flew via Frankfurt and so the trip was longer than that what we are used to, outside you have so many different areas to choose from, and more than enough sunshades, the area was very clean and tidy also everyone was more than helpful not this sort of forced helpfulness but one where you noticed that the people working there were happy doing their job.

I must say and this is my own opinion, that my wife and I treat everyone at any hotel with the respect which we know they will treat us, I have seen it enough over my years of traveling where people act as if they own the place and they treat those working there the same way, it is quite amazing how a smile and friendly words work on someone who you don’t know, if a talk to those working there was very awarding and it makes them feel just as good as you do.

Both you and I can have a bad day and not really be interested about anything and so can those working around the work have the same thing a bad day, but they always have to smile and be friendly at all times, a tip for the room service does wonders, although it is something we always do a small amount now and then is also something which is rewarded, of course they are just doing their job but on holiday it is also the small things which count.

We also had a few meals in the hotel and it was nice sitting outside in the evening and have a good meal and a drink, this hotel is really worth the money and I can recommend it to anyone who is after a nice place to stay, the only thing which I found not quite so good was the small beach but there again you can’t have everything.

We will visit this hotel again sometime.

My wife and I spent an amazing fortnight at Al Raha Beach Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed every single moment of our holiday. Our room was a deluxe gulf view room which was a pure delight. From our first step into the beautiful reception area to our last step out of the hotel into our departing taxi, we could not have wished for a more perfect time.
If you want a fantastic hotel in a delightful beach setting, just book it!
Finally, it would be grossly unfair to single out any member of the brilliant hotel staff in making our first stay in Abu Dhabi amazing so all we will say is THANK YOU to each and every one of them - we appreciated everything you did.

From first step in this hotel we felt that we are going to have a wonderful experience. The reception stuff was amazing very helpful and wants to fulfill your requirements in any way they can the other stuff was very organized and know what was needed before we asked , the room was very luxury (specially the bathroom) the gulf view was good, the breakfast was amazing (a lot of option for all taste), the hotel location is very unique (20 min far from downtown and also 10 min away from Yas island). The only disadvantage we found is that the restaurants are some how expensive.

Really we enjoyed our stay their and i recommend anyone wants to spend a relaxed vacation or weekend to stay their.

Room Tip: Grand Gulf View
