We came as group 3 families to stay in the hotel and have some good time at the pool however the service and the attitude that we got from your staff his name Shahid will not make us booking this hotel again, when we asked him to check the reception what they did with us about the payment on arrival because he said we don't have deposit in the rooms, we just ordered one juice and as we remember it was just 25 or 35 dirhms he said sorry sir I don't have phone here to check with reception and when we asked him to go and check with his colleagues at the reception he said sorry it's not my job my job is only here, we had booked 3 rooms so of course we are not going to run away and not to pay 35 dirhms, to be honest we are definitely not coming again and we will spend our family time in any other hotel, the team at the Arabic restaurant was very good and accommodating as well as the Italian restaurant hosts she was explaining everything with smile

We had a wonderful time staying here again. Our 2 year old was taken care of so well and nothing was too much trouble for the club lounge team to make our stay comfortable. Shout out to the wonderful team - caren, rajan, marina, mariana, zalimar. Also Vicky from the buffet downstairs. They go above and beyond! The disappointing thing however was that all the club lounge services were not available eg private check in/ out, food and drinks throughout day was not available until after 1pm, no buffet so choices felt limited.

The Fairmount Bab Al Bahr is a first class hotel with excellent staff. I would like to give a special mention to Mukesh (bartender), Ravi (waiter), Vicki (restaurant manager) for making my time here thoroughly enjoyable with their warm personalities, attention to detail, hospitality and professionalism. Also Michael and Zahid (concierge’s) on the many trips that Abu Dhabi has to offer and for explaining things in great detail. They both went out of their way to help and assist me. I highly recommend to other visitors to try this hotel and sample it’s unique qualities and ambience/tranquility (night time).
