This hotel was chosen due to location, cost and the beach club for a long weekend travelling with a teenage family.
At check-in we were asked if we wanted to upgrade to Executive rooms which included access to the executive lounge with breakfast and snacks/drinks throughout the day plus internet access. Firstly, the internet access in the rooms was not very good. Secondly, the breakfast buffet was only continental unlike the main buffet downstairs. The service at breakfast was really quite bad for a 5 star hotel. Uncleared tables, constantly asking for coffee cups, knives, forks- food!! The staff explained that as it was a weekend there were 'too many' families and that during the week it would be better as it was usually business customers! Not exactly what we wanted to hear.
The hotel is really quite dated now, but we were aware of this due to Tripadvisor reviews. However, the beach club more than made up for it and this was the main reason that we chose this hotel. The Marina Mall is an easy stroll away but crossing the roads was very hairy.
Do not ask the hotel to book taxis as the cost is double, instead ask one of the doormen outside and they will sort you out. The staff are very approachable throughout this hotel.
Ps A visit to Ferrari World is a must if you have older kids and look out for it as you fly in or out of Abu Dhabi airport!
