We stayed at the Rotana for a week with our two children 8 and 5 years old. Today is our last day and I’m writing this sitting on our little patio looking at the beautiful pool area. For us this was perfect. The food is amazing, starting with breakfast - something for everyone - and we tried 3 restaurants all of them were great. We love Asian food and Sim Sim had something for us every time. The service at this hotel is faultless which is amazing given the size of this place. Everyone is very helpful and friendly and quick. We loved the choices of activities like tennis, paddle and mini golf. And a lot of attractions are just a 20 min taxi ride away. Pool and beach are also very nice, the color of the sea is magnificent. For us this was great!

Stayed here for the week. Last night ate at Turtle bay. Terrible mistake. We are a couple with a 11/12 old, after ordering 1.5hr later no food. I complain we get starters and main courses together. Final bill all as normal. I recommend stay at other resorts

First visit to Saadiyat Rotana, for two week vacation. Could hardly fault our stay. Room was spacious, pleasantly decorated - actually found it more appealing than the photos. Housekeeping kept it promptly clean & tidy The resort was laid out nicely and gardens were well maintained and attractive. Beach area was kept clean, plenty of beds & towels available with staff always attentive. The beach was a lovely long sandy stretch and a pleasure to while away time sitting or walking. A highlight was spotting dolphins close to shore on our first day. Our preference was to eat & relax in the hotel complex. We tried all restaurants and variety of dishes, really couldn't fault much. A favourite was Turtle Grill which we left a separate review.

We spent 10 days at the Saadiyat Rotana and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is spotless throughout, rooms incredibly comfortable and housekeeping is excellent. We ate at the buffet for every breakfast and for most dinners as we had a 2 year old with us. The food was wide ranging and just delicious. We were so impressed with the variety and quality. The staff also make this restaurant what is is - they’re all so polite and kind. Particular thanks goes to: Manoj, Rupali, Khant and Kennedy. The FOH staff were also wonderful as well. We enjoyed spending most days by the pool and also at the beach where possible / weather permitting. The beach is beautiful and there is some construction to the side of the hotel but it was never disturbing /we didn’t notice it at all. We felt so looked after by all the staff at the poolside particularly: Min, Peter and Remi. We both enjoyed treatments at the spa - they have created a very impressive, relaxing environment with 5 star finishes. The treatments were excellent and worth every penny. We would recommend the Rotana to anyone looking for a family friendly hotel with excellent services, facilities, staffing and food.

This was our first visit to Abu Dhabi, and we spent 4 wonderful nights at Saadiyat Rotana as a courtesy gift from our dear friend in Abu Dhabi. We did not know, but it became our best ever experience at any hotel we had stayed in the past. From the arrival until our checking out from the hotel, we were pampered and taken care of by the staff and managers. Mr. Mathias welcomed us at the reception and once knowing that we are newly-weds, he did all in his capacity to facilitate us for our special occasion. Our room was very well-equipped, clean and tidy with a balcony viewing to the sea. The breakfast was delicious, and we could enjoy from a variety of exquisite food and drinks. The staff at the Sim-Sim restaurant were always there to help and assist us with their beautiful smiles. All the members of staff were very helpful, but we would like to specially mention the names of Gede, Ismail, Haseeb and Patience for their exceptional service and dedication. Rocky reached out to us in arranging the transfer of our luggages to the lobby upon our check-out, and Komlan was always there for us at the reception and at the exit if we needed any help. Although we did not have sufficient time to visit the beach, but when we did visit, Remi always welcomed us with professionalism and a big smile on his face. Thank you very much for this wonderful experience that made our special event even more special! We will surely stay at Saadiyat Rotana should we have an opportunity to visit Abu Dhabi in the future.

The hotel staff is absolutely amazing. Every single staff will greet you. Check in was so easy and flawless. The pool is huge and the waiters are very attentive. Our room was super spacious and we even got dates as a welcome threat in our room. The breakfast selection is also great as there is plenty to chose from and it was not too crowded. You never had to wait to be seated and all the used tables would be tidied up immediately which I don’t see happening a lot so that was impressive. The hotel is stunning, all the public toilets were always clean. I am really impressed with the staff and level of professionalism. I literally can’t say anything negative about this hotel! Well done!

The hotel offers at the internet different products,much better than what we found. I was offered on the internet a room with bathtub at the bathroom what was not true.Actually the shower not even had a glass to avoid the water to flood the area around it and also the toilet lid. The staff did all possible to change the room but said the hotel was full.As a client we felt the last on the queue getting the worst accommodations ever.New room was found much better than the first but still the staff had to put two beds together to make one for a couple.Unacceptable in my point of view once we had reserved in advance a room for a couple.We found three holes in the bed linen what does not match a five star hotel quality. The staff was very nice and polite but evidently the administration showed very weak. At the sea food restaurant the service was very slow and we had to remember after half an hour the waiters to bring the glasses of wine we ordered.The food was good but even the bottle of water ,ordered in the beginning of the meal ,just arrived in the end after some reminders. Too many staff in an empty restaurant and no attention to the guests at all.I even had to stand up to remind the waiter for my order. The hotel breakfast at least was very good and also the staff was ,in general very polite.
