True 5 star resort with excellent services
We were very happy with our stay. This place is so clean and beautiful. Wifi works grate. All the staff are friendly, helpful and professional. Especially the lady who checked us in. We told her it was our fist time in Abu Dhabi and she was so kind to offer us a free room upgrade to the view of the beach and Grand Mosque. The view of this room is so beautiful, I didn't want to leave the room. There were a few stain on our couch which can not be remove so the staff quickly offered to change it. The 4 of us had Saturday brunch here and it was also excellent. Many thanks to all the staff. We will definitely stay here again when were are back in Abu Dhabi.

Five stars!
Such a great stay at the Fairmont - we had the most beautiful view of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque from our room. The service was impeccable and the food was great as we mostly ate in the hotel due to covid restrictions of dining out in the city.
