5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

went for my 50th birthday it is a spectacular hotel from the grounds,staff,food we had a wonderful stay and will be returning later this year.We have stayed at many 5 star hotels in Dubai but this was are first visit to Abu Dhabi and it was by far the best we have stayed in the service was excellent, the only criticism is the beverages were a bit pricey.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view as you will have a great view of the mosque

Anticipating our every desire is their watchword. Shangri La's are simply the best hotels we stay in the world with best service and food we experienced, all over the world, amongst all luxury hotels, even 7 stars.

I frequently stay at this hotel. It is simply the best hotel in Abu Dhabi. What makes this hotel special is a nice location overlooking the canal and the grand mosque. The buffet at this hotel is perhaps the largest and best in the country. It is so big, there is no way you can try all the dishes, no matter how big your appetite is. The hotel has two lovely swimming pools. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the bathroom amenities (Occitane) are nice. Housekeeping does a good job cleaning the room twice per day. I always feel sad when I check out from this hotel.
On the downside, there were some unfortunate issues relating to some staff. On one occasion, a house keeping staff just opened the door and walked in WITHOUT knocking or ringing the bell. I was shocked and scarred. On another stay, the staff at the reception cancelled my reservation and gave the room that I had booked to someone else. When I confronted them, they said that it was because the room was "out of service" and needed renovation. I complained to the hotel's management and they gave me back the room that I had booked and it was just fine.
All in all, this is an excellent hotel and I will not let a couple of unprofessional staff ruin my image of this nice hotel. And I would still very highly recommend this excellent hotel.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are best. If you don't drink, the Horizon Club is not worth it. The food they se...

I have stayed at this hotel before, and I got the excellent service I was expecting.
The room was large, very comfortable, and spotless.
The service is attentive, but not overwhelming.
A perfect stay.

Room Tip: Request a room with a view of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque: it is worth it.

Last weekend was the second time we have stayed here. It's simply fabulous. We especially loved the long, luxurious breakfast on Saturday morning. The room was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and we wish we could have stayed longer. Next time.......

Great hotel with lovely pools and beaches. Super friendly staff. Good selection of restaurants. Good babysitting service. The hotel is a quick taxi ride out of the city.

Would be nice to see a kids club here.

Horizon rooms, well worth the extra money.Breakfast snacks 2 hours of cocktails and canapes every night.
The club lounge was brilliantly run as whole hotel was.
Staff were Amazing. We felt like we were royalty. They called us by name from minute we arrived. When we left we were overwhelmed
with how fab our trip had been.. Shangri la all the way now...
