Just spent 6 nights here in February and it was fantastic. Hotel was amazing and all the staff were great, from the domestic staff to the guys on the beach. They couldn't do enough for you. We spent many a night in the Bridges bar during happy hour and the staff were fantastic, especially Ahasya who looked after us. The bar manager Glen was friendly and his team are a credit to him. The only down side to the hotel is the lack of amenities around the area if you want to eat elsewhere.

Hotel's Favourite
Absolutely amazing! We love this hotel so much, we always return. Everything about this hotel is fantastic. Every single member of staff are incredibly polite, kind, helpful and go over and above to ensure your stay is an enjoyable and memorable one. The staff really do make this hotel stand out so much more than others. Rooms are spacious and impeccably clean and comfortable. The pool is heated and it so relaxing,and service comes to your sunbed. This most recent visit was our first in the Gold Lounge and we have to say it was wonderful. Again, every single staff member was extremely friendly and attentive and couldn't do enough for us. It was brilliant. They even surprised us with a happy birthday cake and song for one of our birthdays. The views from the beach of the Grand Mosque are incredible and the location is excellent as it gets you to all parts of Abu Dhabi Island from either direction, including being on the correct side of Duabi if you wish to do day trips there. Thank you again, Fairmont, for everything. Special thanks to Michael (concierge) for always taking the time to help us and make us feel welcome. Also to Saged for such a smooth booking process and welcoming check in.

The Junior suite room has amazing view and the majestic Sheikh Zayed grand mosque especially the sunset view. Couldn’t get enough of it. Bed and pillow was plush and inviting. Breakfast was great with wide choice. Staff were welcoming and swift in serving us with great service.

Everything was delicious, from the cheese, to the sushi, to the lobster, meat, and dessert. Great service too. Management and staff were all accommodating. Special thanks to Fazeen who always checked on us if we got everything we need and if we liked our food. Great job everyone.
