Its one of the older hotels in Abu Dhabi, but seems to be completely modernised. I can only say that as there is no modernisation work going on as with other hotels in Abu Dhabi, so you can relax. The outside bar and Belgian Cafe are great, with a good choice of food. The pork knuckle is definitely a challenge! One serving fed 3 of us one night. :-) I will add the waiters do sometimes have their 'quirks' and serving logic is a bit strange, but I suppose you get there in the end. Cleanliness in the rooms is faultless, by the cleaner Vazquez, who's really helpful and friendly. The property has 2 pools, one just at the property and a short work away is a private beach with another large pool, both great! Unfortunately only had time to visit each once but worth going back just to try them again.
