Really friendly staff especially Sapal from Nepal at the breakfast room. Wonderful person really. She looked after our daughter and us so nicely. Everyday she had a smiling face, accommodating our toddler in a really nice way. Really hoping the hotel can look after her well.

We had visited this hotel as a couple 2 years ago and it was all great. This time we took our 10 and 12 year olds who are well behaved. We like to have a meal in the evening in and then go for a drink after which gives us a chance to spend some time chatting as a family. We found the children policies all over the place. Some nights we were welcomed in to a restaurant/bar, then the next evening in we were being told it was against policy and asked to leave. We tried to speak with managers but they would just get the bar staff to preach policies. I tried to speak with reception but same again. It made our experience quite intense in the evenings, for this reason we won’t return. Overall the rest of our experience was ok. We didn’t find the staff over friendly , some waiters in individual restaurants were ok but they were the exception. The breakfast in the buffet was acceptable but bland, certainly not upto normal use standards. The quality of food in the other restaurants was great.

The hotel is about 35 minutes from the airport and is connected to the Abu Dhabi Mall. We got there to check-in 05:30 and the front desk guy was very helpful and let us get into our rooms after we had breakfast at 07:00 rather than making us wait until 14:00. This might have been because the hotel was only 70% full, we could have got into our rooms at 05:30 if we had been willing to pay for half a day extra. The rooms were very clean and the bed and pillows very comfortable, only slight issue was that we were on the 6th floor and shower water pressure was just about OK. All the staff we met were incredibly polite and helpful and their standard of service (apart from drinks with meals which I will come on to later) excellent, this may be because it was not uncommon to see managers walking the floor and checking up on things. An example of the excellent service was when one of my daughter’s things accidently got caught up with the sheets when they were changed, someone spent hours looking through the laundry until it was found. The hotel is a tranquil oasis in the middle of the city centre even though there are skyscrapers all-round the large garden area and man-made beach make it a very relaxing place to be. There are plenty of sun loungers, all thickly padded with little pillows attached, they were the most comfortable sun loungers we had ever come across. The beach was made up of soft clean sand and children seemed to like it. We were on the all-inclusive (AI) option so only had access to the Essence Restaurant and the Bay View Bar not the “all inclusive + dine around option” which gives you access to all the other restaurants - so please consider this when reading other people’s reviews. We did consider upgrading to the this when we booked but it was about an extra £500 more and thought it would be cheaper to upgrade directly with the hotel, this was a mistake as the hotel were going to charge 140 Dirham per person per night, so for our family of 4 for a week this would have been 3,920 Dirham (approx £850), so we decided not to. With the standard AI option, for example, you could not get a pastry in the afternoon as they were only available in the other restaurants with the AI+ option, which is not something you come across in the Caribbean or Mexico with their AI offering. Now I will come on to our main complaint, in the Essence Restaurant in the evening there were approximately 50 (?) tables and 5/6 staff clearing tables and taking your drink orders. Sometimes we only saw one person preparing the drinks and usually only two at the most, this meant the drink preparers were swamped so much so that several nights our drinks were not brought to the table until after we had finished our main course. This meant you could not have a diet coke or glass of wine with your meal. We got to the stage of ordering double drinks because the wait for a second one was equally as long. I think the drinks bar might also have servicing one of the dine around restaurants as well? All in all, we thought it was a very good hotel, not sure we would come back but if we did we probably go for the “all inclusive + dine around option”.

Second long-term stay here, though first time at the residences. The room is comfy and quiet with lovely views. I had only one issue with the bathroom, however the technician,Mr Rashid, fixed the issue and explained the problem, Vert professional. The reception front desk representatives I have dealt with, Mr Saleh and Miss Pryia, have been super, very efficient and helpful. Always happy to help out, again very friendly and professional. The restaurants I frequent are good value for money and the staff have been great, a big thank you to the following for being very helpful and treating my wife and me with excellent service, Mr. Jerimiah, Mr Kevin, Mr Omilito, Mr. Michael, and Mr Joseph at the german Brauhuas restaurant. At the Bayview Restaurant, a big thank you to Messrs, Carlos, Mousa, and Jason, who have been very attentive and provided excellent service, with always a smile on their faces. At the end of the day, the hotel is only as good as the people who work there, hence my 5-star review. Thank You, Peter and Jan

This was our third visit to the Beach Rotana in Abu Dhabi. 2015,2016 and now in 2024. The hotel is beautiful and very very clean. We booked a spacious sea view room with a jacuzzi bath tub. It had a small balcony that was equipped with a table and two chairs. Ideal as we are a family of three and Mum and Dad like to watch programmes whilst the kid snoozes. The best bit is the staff. The spoil you rotten with attentive service. So friendly and helpful all the time. The bay view bar and restaurant serves like much right to your sun lounger (they even place it on your lap in a smart lidded white tray. The food was piping hot and fast to arrive. Drinks flowed too and always with a smile. We booked all inclusive plus or sometimes called “dine around” this gives you the option to use any of the restaurants with a cut down al a carte menu. The menus are cut down but still had plenty of options. We had some amazing dinners in every restaurant. Booking each restaurant was easy and stress free none of that messing about you have with other all inc bookings I’ve experienced. The pools are big warm and clean with a life guard on duty and a swim up bar. They even had no alcohol beer and mocktails. We love this hotel right on the beach of the inlet, great views at night too. It’s a short ish transfer from the airport about 30-40 mins and there is a shopping mall attached too. You don’t need to sweat as you can stay in ac all day if needed. The restaurants are exceptional and the service at each was superb. Finz was stunning with superb fish dishes, the show at Benihana was funny and entertaining and Rodeo grill served the best steak we had had for a long time. Much more I could say.. but go and enjoy it for yourself .

This hotel is a perfect example of what a real 5 star hotel should be. Excellent food, best room service that I’ve experienced, comfortable rooms and administrators that are ready to help you with anything. Thank you Beach Rotana Abu Dhabi for making my vacation 100 times better. I want to especially thank housekeeper Gayan, waiter Omesh, administrator Charles and hostess Roman. Gentleman’s are doing a great job👍
