“Fantastic Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

We spent 5 nights at the Shangri-La in Abu Dhabi and we found the whole experience fantastic. We will return.
The staff throughout the hotel were friendly and polite and they all inquired if there was anyway that our stay could be improved. I cannot think of a single occasion when we did have a gripe or a concern.
One the potential issues was the dress code in Abu Dhabi as a whole but we found that the country had obviously become more accepting of their western visitors over time. Wearing shorts and flip flops was not an issue (within the hotel or outside) and the whole PDA piece is also blown out of proportion too (holding hands is completely acceptable, in fact there were locals doing this around the hotel).

Room Tip: We opted to upgrade to the Horizon room which had a large balcony (with sunbeds and a table/chairs...

I just spent another week at the Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi. I was in Abu Dhabi on business. I am pleased to say things are as good as ever. The staff were attentive and helpful and the facilities as comfortable as ever. The welcome in the Horizon Club is excellent. A continued well done to all at the hotel!

I stayed in this hotel with my family (husband & 2 children).
The reception area was beautiful, the employees delightful, and it smelled heavenly (don't ask why I noticed that).
The Horizon Club check in was a nice added bonus.
Every employee was always concerned with our comfort and enjoyment of the property.
The room we chose was the Executive suite which was on floor 3 (332). Our children stayed in a nearby Deluxe room (331). Both rooms had a magnificent view of the Grand Mosque.

The infinity pool was amazing, the food quality in the restaurants and Horizon Club was great.

The concierge & bellman were excellent and brisk loading & unloading our rental car, which was no small feat, as we had 11 bags, 4 people, and1 car...

Overall, an excellent stay. Ranks up there with the best so far that I've experienced.

Stayed here on one night stopover. We requested early check in and hotel accomodated us on this. Gave us a superb room that was lovely, spacious with the most comfortable bed ever. We ended up spending half the day in the hotel and pool as the facilities were really lovely.
Customer service was exceptional. Staff were friendly and obliging.
Hotel not located downtown but a bit out and closer to airport and Grand Mosque. I didn't mind it as it was quieter. Hotel did offer free shuttle to town and shopping malls. We had a terrific stopover and hotel really enhanced our experience.

We have just enjoyed the most beautiful 3 nights in a superb and very large suite. I chose the hotel because the architecture looked classically Arabian on the website but in reality it is even more stunning with so much attention to detail on every level. Every member of staff we encountered were so very helpful and friendly, from the gorgeous girl who cooked my eggs, to the great pool staff characters and the wonderful and attentive service leader of the Horizon Club, Raman. We had a very good dinner in Hoi Ann and breakfast is excellent. A most pleasurable stop over between Australia and England and one we plan to repeat. Highly recommended.

The suite had over 120m2. Great swimming pool and great restaurants. The view to the mosque from the swimming pool and hotel is legendary.
The buffet choice is unbelievable. The best Chinese restaurant I have ever been, the peking duck is delicious. The beach (sea)is a bit disappointing as it is in a channel, but we can’t forget that we are talking about a city hotel, not a resort.
There are sucks nearby to go for a walk or shop after dinner, or even have dinner there. I tried the Indian and was (just) ok.
