We stayed at the Sofitel for a couple of nights in a Prestige Suite. The Check in went smoothly and the room was as it is in the photos of the website and infact better. The suite was gorgeous and roomy with a fantastic view over the Corniche. I loved the set up of the desk with the Nespresso right by your side! The room was well decorated, large dressing area and bathroom. There was nothing to fault except no where to plug in the hairdryer except at the desk near where you walk into the room! There not the only hotel I have experienced this in and drives me crazy but it was the only fault. The staff were fantastic especially after checking in I could not get my suitcase open. They did everything to help and finally at 2.30am we got it open!!
Breakfast was superb and the service was the best! Nothing was too much trouble and the selection on offer was fantastic. OMG make sure you try the pastry items! They are delish!!
We intended to get out and about as we had not been to Abu Dhabi before and only had 1 full day to look around. Unfortunately there was a Sandstorm and by mid afternoon when we were out at Yas Marina we decided to call it a day as you could not litterly see much. We headed back to the hotel and thought we would go up to the Club Millesome and have a drink and snack which was included with our package. Unfortunately we found out it is not open yet - ok so I thought Spa and no its not open yet either. A little disappointed but not the end of the world.
This hotel is so new still the decor is lovely and elegant and besides those few little things we really enjoyed this hotel. The staff were kind, friendly and helpful. Sofitel you have done well there!
Its great value at $264 per night and even though I would not expect the fantastic price we got to last - I would go back anyway.
Well done to all at Sofitel!
