Average at best
Looks like an office building converted into a Hotel. Overall not bad however if your unlucky like me, chances are you will end up with a room with a view if the parking lot. 6.5/10

Needs updating
Needs updating rooms. Lovely view but windows if room are dirty water marks all over. Aircon keeps making a cracking noise. The shower floods the toilet room. Play area You have to pay extra for some extra toys and face painting and so on in play area. After paying the extra the kids loved it. Pool water was very cold. Needs heating in the winter. Expected more for a 5 star hotel.

Good product but staff way below mark for Fairmont
Booked 2 rooms for me & my colleague for 2 nights. I was upgraded to higher category room - huge room with beautiful view of the canal & mosque. Had a platter of local sweets as welcome gift.That was the only good thing about the stay. I'm Le Club Platinum member but had to wait in Q for check in at reception as no one was present at the members' dedicated desk. The hotel does not have member's lounge. My billing was goofed up. I had to make multiple follow-ups with the staff as they could not locate my payment (done 1 week prior) even after my email communication with multiple staff members before arrival. My final billing took much longer than usual (I guess they forgot to post some charges to my room) They misplaced my luggage on departure & I was left waiting at the counter for more than 10 minutes. Some staff entered in my colleague's room in the middle of night - instead of apology, he was offered room change 3 hours prior to his departure. In-spite of nice location and beautiful premises, not sure if I want to return to this hotel.

Beautiful, elegant hotel
Beautiful, elegant hotel in a great location, the staff were so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about local excursions (which we did by local taxi rather than the hop on hop off bus thereby able to choose our length of time anywhere). Our room was spacious and modern. The private beach and pool were lovely with the stunning Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque always in view. Our room also overlooked the mosque from the floor to ceiling windows, We had room only but did eat in Marco's Italian which had a classy New York feel, lovely food and relaxed ambience. I definitely want to come back, it was all perfect! - Sarah
