From the moment we arrived we felt instantly relaxed. The staff were kind and accommodating and ensured that we were happy and comfortable. The hotel has some incredible food options. 'Eat Street' on a sunday night at Origins is a fun option for those who can't agree on one cuisine and watching the sunset at the rooftop pool was lovely. We would definitely stay here again if we have the chance and I will definitely be recommending Yas Viceroy to friends and family
We have traveled around the world and only stayed in 5* hotels and resorts (including the Rosewood Mayakoba in Mexico) and can honestly say that the Rosewood Abu Dhabi is without a fault!
Location is excellent, convenient with a great view of the city, attached to Galeria upmarket mall with excellent shops and restaurants, taxi ride anywhere in the city is between GBP 2-5
Rooms are just fantastic! Well designed and beautifully appointed with latest fixtures including an iPad to control your room, tv, curtains etc. Beautiful view from the rooms as well (they are building the Four Seasons hotel near by but it's not a problem at all, you won't hear any noise at all and we found it a good sign that the Four Seasons are going to be there too!)
Bathroom is beautiful with a deep bath and luxury amenities. very clean throughout with crispy bedlinen and the most comfortable bed.
The staff is very helpful, friendly and warm - their culture of being their own internal guests shows - they really care that their guests have the best experience!
Highly recommended, if you decide to book this hotel, you will be very pleased indeed!

My wife and I met our son here who flew in from Muscat. The hotel kindly placed us in rooms next to each other. The room was vast (end of block 401) with all the trimmings you need when on holiday. The room was clean cool with the AC, with a balcony overlooking the creek and the mosque. The hotel was not busy as full high season is not for a few months but there was a full compliment of staff to attend to you. We used the pool facilities and despite the temperature reaching 40 the pol cooled us down and we had a small cool box of water topped up regularly throughout the day. The staff came around regularly with a fruit kebab and a fresh fruit juice or tea in the afternoon. We ate at Bord Eau which was wonderful and when you compare prices with other hotels fairly reasonable, but the food was exquisite. We used the "brunch" buffet where everything was so fresh and plentiful you wanted to try all the dishes! We also had a brunner on Friday at Pearls and Caviar which was very good with a good selection of seafood and good wine. For the other days in the week we tried other restaurants in other hotels which were also very good but on comparing the hotels themselves nothing came close to the Shangi-la, its positioning away from the city and downtown area and its cooling breeze off the creek. It has so much going for it with the souk attached to the side where there are a good few quality restaurants, a Starbucks for your morning caffeine fix...
"Second time round equally as good as first visit!"
This was our second visit in 3 months to a fantastic hotel. Stayed on Gold floor where you are looked after so well - staff are brilliant and so friendly right throughout the whole hotel nothng is too much trouble for them.
Hotel is extremely clean and the lobby area smells so good. The swimming pool is large, cooled to a lovely temperature in the hot months and well maintained. Staff are on hand to help lay towels on your sun-lounger, adjust your sun shade and bring an ice bucket for your complimentary bottles of water. There is a swim up bar which is very handy in the Summer heat.
Hotel restaurants are excellent from the buffet restaurant Cuiscene up to Marco Pierre White.
We had never been to Abu Dhabi before, although had been to Dubai a couple of times. We looked at a few hotels before deciding on the Sofitel, based on other reviews that we'd read. When we got there, we were not disappointed. We had requested a room on a high floor, and mentioned that it was our wedding anniversary. We were welcomed with a drink at reception, and escorted to our room by the very attentive staff, and when we entered, we were stunned to see that the staff had prepared it with rose petals on the bed and in the bath, and folded the towels into swans. A few minutes later, there was a knock on the door, and it was a porter, who presented us with a cake with "Happy Anniversary" written on it, as well as a selection of fresh fruit, and were told this was all on the house. We had only been there 5 minutes, but were already certain that we had made the right choice.
The hotel itself is simply stunning. A fantastic location right at the Northern end of the Corniche. The facilities are great, and it is so clean. As for the staff, I've never felt so well looked after. Nothing was too much for them. They all made the effort to make conversation, and it never once felt like they were doing it because they had to. Special mention to Alvin at the pool, Mohammed the shuttle bus driver, and Sanjeewa from Chillo's bar, who we had lots of conversations with during our stay.
To sum up, we loved it and will certainly be staying there again. Top class hotel. Thanks everyone!
