6/10 Good

Lovely Hotel but no sun ever on the Pool
The hotel is about 15 mins from the airport and a further 15 mins from Abu Dhabi Centre with nothing else around. This was a negative for us. The hotel check-in took forever, and we were the only ones (pre Paid), although they said it was a new system. The staff throughout were very good, especially the concierge team. We stayed on the 20th floor in a suite, and the space and views were superb. We opted for half board, and we were very pleased with the quality and range of food available. The one major downfall at this hotel is that the pool, although lovely and comfy, it does not get the sun at any time. Our plans for a day by day sightseeing and day by day pool was, therefore, not an option. We enjoyed a magnificent xmas Eve festive dinner outside and must say that we were super impressed. The Belgian Bar provided plenty of TVs for sport and a pool table with the downside of smokers inside (personal choice and so used to the UK laws now). The Italian Restaurant offered a superb selection of Pizzas and Pasta (241) after 6 pm daily. Overall, the hotel is lovely, the staff could not do anything more to help and please, the food was very good and the bar offered plenty. The downside is that the hotel stands alone with nothing around, and the Pool never ever sees the sun due to its position at the rear.
