We've spent two nights at Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan in Dec. Everything was perfect. Early check-in, support of the stuff, very tasty breakfasts and lunches with big choice of delicious food. Mrs Louna at reception was very helpful and we felt ourselves as most welcomed guests. Everything in the room and on the beach and at the pool was clean, in fine condition. Overall experience is 100% positive. Would definitely chose this hotel again.

The food is good.. Great hotel. Anwar is excellent at his job and very good asset to the hotel. He did a great job cleaning the room daily and was personable and friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel and to stay on the 10th floor.

Positive: Nice and clean. Very good located, close to the Corniche, close to a mall and nice beach. The staff is competent and friendly, I mean the whole staff from the rezeption to restaurant and houskeeping. Small beach but very nice and quiet. Some guests have the bad habit of reserving the beach longchairs with the towel over hours but it is not the hotel's fault. We had a room looking to the beach and pools, during the morning might be loud, cause of families with children and music. Everything very clean and in good conditiones. The bathroom is big, the room very comfortable. Negative: it is unpleasant to see in these countries how bosses treat their subordinates, in the case of the restaurant staff for example. The elevator bell, especially in the mornings, we were 20 meters away from it but it was annoying.

Stayed here as a couple for 10 nights and enjoyed our stay. We had a studio room which was a good size and amongst other things had the benefit of a washer / drier which was really useful. There were a mix of guests from a number of countries and although we were told that the hotel is popular with Italians, Russians seemed to be in the majority. The pool and beach areas are nice and there was no shortage of sun beds even though the hotel was busy. The only meal we had was breakfast which was extensive although the hot items were let down by an absence of hot plates - only cold ones, guaranteed to cool the food down instantly. The staff were all helpful and friendly and Marina Mall and the Presidential Palace were both within walking distance. Apart from other hotels in the locality the nearest restaurants were at the Mall although we generally took taxis into the city for dinner as these are inexpensive and numerous.

We spent 10 days at this lovely hotel in October. As far as holidays go, I would rate this right up there with the one of the best. The staff made the difference! from our arrival( we had an early bird in Abu Dhabi Airport so got to the hotel 5 hours before check in), Donald was fantastic, he did his utmost to get us into a room within an hour. Our stay was flawless - like I say the staff were fabulous: Vanessa in the Horizon restaurant was great, so was Chef Patrick, Chef Umesh, Fobia the life Guard was very caring, the ladies at the kids club equally fantastic. The management were ever present and nothing was too much trouble for them. I really recommend this hotel and will be going back with my family. Thank you to Harald Furstein the General Manager and your team for a memorable holiday. My only criticism would be the experience at the Arabian restaurant on our first night but like I said the rest of our stay was epic.

Very good and helpful staff. Nice hotel, big room with nice view for pool or for palace. Kamoon restaurant with oriental food is very good. Wide range of food at breakfast. Very good beach and pool with warm water. Great location, Corniche, Palace, Emirates Palace, Etihad towers, Ray's bar, Lexx lounge is very close even by foot. Unfortanetely no alcoholic beverages can be found in the hotel, but you can get it with 5 minutes walk in Hyatt or Conrad.

A nice big hotel with alot of amenities. Our room was overlooking the water and the pools. Very nice pool sitting and outdoors vibe. The staff is helpful. We asked for a us outlet and it was delivered to our room. I am only giving 4 stars because the room is a little worn out and ready for renovation. Other than tat, it is a great hotel for a stay!
