"Absolutely perfect for my first visit to Abu Dhabi"
The staff was amazing. I arrived exhausted at 10:00 pm, and the welcomed me to sit at the reception desk for check in. They upgraded me to a premier room for free, offered me dates and a beverage, and personally walked me to the room to explain all its features.
The room was well air conditioned, spacious, spotless, quiet, with lovely amenities. The closet was bigger than my closet at home. There was free bottled water and fresh fruit in the room, and a well-stocked mini bar. There were slippers by my bed and I swam a few laps in the giant bathtub! There was even a personalized welcome message for me on the TV.
I was only there 29 hours, but every staff member called me by name, and made sure I had everything I needed during my short stay. They arranged a car and driver for me for a few hours to see the sights. The hotel grounds are beautiful! I hope to return one day for a longer stay!!
Good hotel, excellent and friendly staff.
Hotel needs to look at their upkeep as there is some work to do around the property.
6 visit to Abu Dhabi and probably the least favourite of my hotels but a good location with various restaurant options both in and out of the hotel.
Idyllically set on the waterfront Eastern Mangroves Hotel and Spa by Anantara is a natural haven on the cusp of urban life …More
Hotel is on the Rotana complex along with Arjaan Rotana Hotel.
Excellent facilities within hotel with free shuttle bus to Yas Island (inc: Ferrari World, Yas Mall and Yas Beach), free puck up and drop off twice a day.
Only negative is you have to go in a taxi every where, with diwn tiwn Abu Dhabi approx 25 mins away.
it took us 50 minutes to check-in , although we arrived at the preferred time 2:00 PM the front desk staff were uneducated and insulted me and my wife about our culture and believes. would made us forget about the front desk issue is that we stayed in Khaleej Suite which was amazing, butler service was great. P.S. the suite was so big that its bigger than our actual house.
We have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr, we stayed on the gold floor in a room with a Mosque view, I can honestly say that the staff at his hotel from the cleaners to the Gold floor manager are there to make your stay special, and they do it very very well.
The hotel is away from the centre of Abu Dhabi, the cost of a taxi is around 45 Dirhams (£9.00) if you where to travel to Yas Island the cost is around the same.
But having said the above there is a hotel shuttle service to the City or Yase of charge.
There are 4 different restaurants in the hotel, Frankies(Italian) excellent food, Marco Pier Whites (Steak) excellent Cuisine (Buffet) again excellent food, and a Lebanese I cannot comment as I did not vist.
I would recommend this hotel for a relaxing break with the opportunity to visit other areas if you like.
