I've been to this hotel a few times and been involved in hosting conferences in the conference centre. There are a range of room sizes in the conference centre and the morning tea spreads are great, good selection and attentive staff. While staff are wonderful and attentive, at times its a bit too much and space/privacy has to be requested....

Amazing hotel, great food and perfect service! Gym, pool, beach, bars and restaurants - I have no remarks. Food was excellent, with choice and variety. The Abu Dhabi Great Mosque has lovely views from the hotel gardens and pool. The only disadvantage is the lack of a terrace in the room. I do recommend.

Stayed here for work and, while initially disappointed that we weren't staying across the river at the Ritz, I needn't have been because this place is a total gem. The views are stunning, the staff are beyond kind, and the club-level amenities are extensive. The restaurants leave a little to be desired, and the room lighting is very dim at...

We use the Friday brunch facilities, and there was a party of 20 people for our friends leaving party. The staff were very slow and frustrating as they insisted on controlling the flow of drinks, despite it being a " free flow restaurant". the food was beautiful, but the staff let it down along with their attitudes. The after brunch...
