We enjoyed the stay at the hotel much, the service was very good and the facilities too. Abu Dhabi Mall is situated nextdoors which is very convenient and there is also a grocery store at the hotel area. The staff is very service minded. It is easy to find at the entrance of the hotel. The meals that are served are great and the buffet was overwhelming. The staff was helpful in recommending attractions and organising excursions. It is possible to buy tickets to tourist attractions at the hotel with discount. At the hotel you can bathe either in the pool or in the canal. There is also a gym, tennis courts and they give diving lessons.

"Really nice small city resort"
This was a relatively small resort compared to others we have stayed at. The positives being not having to walk far between the pool, gym and beach.
The buffet restaurant was excellent. Some of the best food we have had.
Gym was well equipped. The kids pool was heated to 29c..amazing!
What would have improved it:
Kids or adult entertainment. There was none.
Kids club was smaller than our hotel room in size and appeared suitable for only babies/toddlers
Kids pool to have some equipment such as slides or fountains.
There were only 3 free exercise classes during the week, none of which I would do (e.g. tabata)All other classes had to be paid for which was disappointing for me as that's not my experience of other 5 star hotels.
None of other restaurants were lavailable for us to eat in for free as part of the package.

I come to the hotel every yeary since 6 years now. every year something new and the services are better. everything is great. the location near Abu Dhabi mall with a direct entrance from the hotel. the beach, the swimming pool, the gym center, and most of the outstanding breakfast with a lot of variety. the rooms are large and very comfortable though we can hear the air conditionner. but that cannot forbid you to enjoy the view from the upper rooms. the personnel is here to serve you . they are very helpful and reactive to any issue you can encounter. the hotel has a lorge offer of dining but the neighbourhood also propose different kinds of dining

"Beach Rotana Perfect Retreat"
We visited this hotel in 2010 and was so delighted to find that nothing has changed in fact with the dine around package the whole experience improved. The quality of the food was excellent as were all of the staff. We stayed in a club room and the staff's attention to detail in there was second to none with all of the clients they have they still managed to remember our breakfast & evening drinks order. The choice of restaurants was better than nearly all of the all inclusive hotels we have stayed in. Michael, Sandeep, Anthony and all of Lucky's team are first class. Our housekeeper was also exceptional. Anyone who has visited this hotel and has a problem with the dine around package is extremely hard to please. The location of the hotel is ideal for the the theme parks which we visited and for £20 by cab there is no room for complaint. We will definately be returning next year.

"Beach in the city"
Excellent holiday in Abu Dhabi, while the storms raged back in Europe. WE had 6 days at the Rotana beach hotel, and really enjoyed it. WE went dune bashing and visited Yas waterworld, and the hotel is ideally located for accessing al, that Abu Dhabi has to offer.

"Child friendly hotel"
Hotel was great, had a great view from 16th floor, child friendly hotel. Hotel lobby not ideal for kids, overall I though this hotel was great for the kids as they enjoyed the kids pool, which they loved. The indigo restaurant was the best.

"Fabulous lazy weekend with friends"
Fabulous food, marvelous service, an overall magical weekend with friends. A bit more evening entertainment would have been the cherry on the cake. We will be back, both as a couple and with friends, and why not!!

"Comfortable service oriented"
I was in Abu Dhabi on business for less than a week, and the hotel was chosen by the client. I was more than pleased with the selection, and found it to be not only comfortable and enjoyable, but the room was practically a home away from home. The breakfast was excellent, and everyone was super professional and helpful. I can't really say if the value for money was good as it was paid directly by the client, but I certainly was happy to be there!

Very Good Good: The location was fantastic; we enjoyed the beach side and the great lounge café in the courtyard. The room was clean, with a small balcony, which, however, gave a beautiful view.

A weekend away Good: Breakfast was good, Waitstaff was very good in Essence, Benihana, and the pool area. Room is clean and comfortable
Bad: Traders Vics. We went to have a drink and there so many waitstaff but yet no one shows you to your seat or finds you one. Nobody takes your order until you go & get their attention. Really disappointing. We finished 1 drink and left for another place nearby. Would not come back, the band is not good as well.
