We stayed at this hotel for 10 nights in May. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms spacious, we had a gulf view room which is definitely worth the upgrade.
The hotel facilities are good and the food is lovely. There was a huge choice at breakfast and the restaurant was never overly busy.
The beach although more of a lagoon was great, it does get crowded on a weekend so you need to be down there early. If you do like to be on the beach early please take your own towels, we were shocked when we were told that we couldn't have the hotel beach towels until 9am. I've never known this before and have stayed in numerous hotels in the UAE in the past.
The mall attached to the hotel is poor. There are a handful of shops and a couple of restaurants. The hotel is about 30 mins and £10 in a taxi from the centre of Abu Dhabi and the malls.
It would be a better option on all inclusive.
We did have a fantastic holiday though and the location is the only reason we probably wouldn't return. We couldn't really fault the hotel though.
