The refurbished rooms are beautiful. But the older rooms are terrible. Aircons not working, smelled weird. Service was so bad most places. Waited over an hour for bags to be brought down etc. Bad bad service. However great amenities, restaurants and security. Amazing for kids and families also.

Amazing place!
We loved every single thing about our stay here and didn’t want to leave! Everything was perfect. The room, the food, the common areas, the service. All perfection. We upgraded to club level room upon arrival and that was money well spent. If we’re ever in Abu Dhabi again, I would come back here in a heartbeat!
