Stayed for the F1 with the Yas Marina circuit and shopping mall about half an hour away by taxi which was about 65 dirhams(£17). There is usually a queue of taxis outside the hotel so no problem with transport. The concierge also organised a tour of the city for us for 400 dirhams. This included the Grand Mosque which is an absolute must and is fantastic at sunset when the lights come on.
The pool is heated with a swim up bar. There was building work on the adjacent site which involved tipper lorries braking to bang the tailgate against the truck to free off the last of the contents.
One restaurant was closed for refurbishment during our stay which only left one plus a burger bar.
Although we thought we had paid for the hotel in advance there was still a local municipal charge of 15 dirhams a day added to the bill when we arrived. If you have drinks in your room and want ice ask for a small bucket which is free, a large bucket is 15 dirhams. Staff were very friendly and helpful.More
