This hotel is spectacular! Everyone is so welcoming, helpful and kind. the food was amazing! breakfast was my personal favorite. while i was there every evening around 6pm a young lady harpist played for a couple hours. and she was amazing! lovely music to sit and relax and drink tea to. other nights they had a latin group play music by the pool. which was nice to listen and dance to. we went sight seeing to the mosque, and different little towns around, ferrari world was a nice experience. we went to this great restaurant for meats. i believe it was called meat & co.
Overall the hotel was amazing and it was very relaxing. the pool and pool bar is where i hung out the most. the sauna and steam bath also was relaxing. they have a hair salon to so got a mani/pedi twice while i was there. Everything was very nice and breath taking.

Room Tip: our suite was very nice and relaxing and great balcony view and chairs were comfortable

This is a wondeful family hotel! Our two children aged 7 and 5 had an amazing weekend of Yas Waterworld and the water play area at the hotel. (The water play area kept them busy for ages.)There are lots of trees that cool the pool area down, relaxing hammocks and beach/channel infront of the hotel. The pool water is kept cold with a chiller in the summer months
The hotel is a short drive from Yas Waterworld and Ferrari world. We took a package that included tickets to Yas waterworld and it was worth it.
The rooms are very spacious, with great views and large bathrooms. (We stayed high up on the left hand side facing the sea)
Breakfast was very good. The breakfast staff were a bit grumpy but I couldn't fault their service.
This is an excellent hotel if you want to stay on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi Centre is a 20 minute drive away but there are taxis if needed
Another bonus to this hotel is that is has a mall attached with a supermarket and other restaurants. (I would recommend the Chinese takeaway)
Well Done Al Raha Beach Hotel, we will be back!

We used to stay here before the wing was built and it was great.

When we arrived for one nights stay here, we had an extremely poor experience on check in. We were given the room key and left to find our own way to the room, simply pointed in a general direction towards an elevator after the extremely slow check in was finally complete.
On arrival in the room (in the new block), there were insufficient towels etc for 2 people. The room, whilst modern, was small and the bathroom fittings were hanging off the walls. The lavatory door wouldn't close, and the quality of the room was poor.

We went back to reception and asked to be put in one of the rooms in the original hotel building, where we had previously stayed and the quality at that time had been good. This time we were taken to our room and it was much larger, however the lighting was extremely poor, the desk lamp had no bulbs in at all, we discovered that there was water pouring out of the air conditioning unit onto the carpet and furniture and as a result there was an overwhelming damp smell in the room. We had to call for assistance to open the balcony door which was tricky to open due to a warped panel, and stains on the carpet and sofas added to the overall impression of a hotel that has very much lost its way.

The staff assisting us to make us more comfortable were very helpful, and the gentleman who delivered room service was extremely friendly - much more so than the surly man that checked us in!

How this hotel has managed to keep its five star rating is completely beyond me. It claims five stars, charges accordingly and yet in my opinion this would be at best a good three star hotel.

I was there for one night only 8/8/2014, me and my wife and two kids, we liked it and it but there was no any indoor activities for the kids so they can enjoy the hotel. there are indoor swimming pool but this are only for the adults, the one which is for the kids was not covered and UAE weather always sunny and hot!
the pool close very early 20:00pm!!
the GYM was good

Room Tip: - The new wing was good and have better view but far - better to book with breakfast, must try it...
