After reading some of the reviews, we were expecting a good hotel, however, it was way over our expectations. This hotel was amazing. The all inclusive package is excellent, with 7 restaurants you can choice from as well as the Selections buffet diner. The Belgium Cafe Bar has some amazing staff, Archilles and Deepak were not only very hard workers...

Very nice hotel with nice views over the Gulf (if you ignore the ever present construction projects all around). Excellent service and a nice selection of restaurant options. Be aware that it's a good 30 minute ride from Abu Dhabi airport and 15-20!minutes to Central Abu Dhabi.

We stayed here for a week from 11 to 18 September and had a really enjoyable stay. The whole all inclusive experience was something new to us in Abu Dhabi but was well worth doing. If there was a negative it was the limited choice on "some" menus in various restaurants. This was an added issue as I am on...

I think you can upgrade when you check in at the hotel. I would probably say it's much more better to eat out than in the restaurant. You'll have more variety and it is much cheaper. Also maybe buy the Abu Dhabi Entertainer book, they have BOGOF vouchers for so many restaurants and activities. It will be worth your money guaranteed.

Hi, The best place for the open Buffet is the Selections at the AI....wide choices of menu's everyday from around the world which is all inclusive. You can also request your choice of food which they will be very happy to cook for you also. Regarding other restaurant's is they have a separate menu for the all inclusive guests and also separate menu for the non-inclusive which you pay for it. Drink's are fresh as they were always on the Tap containers displayed at the Selections and also canned ones. Love Abu Dhabi and all the attractions. Hope this helps out. Take Care.
