                            - Hotel is quite new and the location is very good. everything was well appointed and the room was clean and comfortable. I liked the staff attention to details and they were very helpful and go the extra step to make sure your are very satisfied. The room was high tech with big TV and and nice bathroom and the size was also good.

                            This is by all means a business hotel and not for pleasure. the lobby most of the time was very busy and the hotel being close to a major companies complex means the hotel were full of people and it takes a long time for them to bring the car. Two major negatives that I have with this hotel: 1- Internet is free however, it's very very slow (256 kb) and shouldn't even be called free internet. if you are thinking of relying on internet to do any work then forget it.there is not option for a faster (paid) either. 2- The food was 40% higher than any hotel in the same range. some of the items price is very ridiculous compared for the tiny quantity you get.

                            The staff are very friendly and trying to help, the facilities are fabulous and the location is excellent.

                            I had an unsatisfactory experience with the WiFi connection which was an issue for me, as I was there on business. This was brought to their attention and they promised to resolve it.

                            I was amazed when I've entered the hotel for the 1st time , but soon it all went away when I saw how small the room is , you are practically sitting in the bathroom . the technical team didn't know how to start any of the devices in there and the mini bar service entered my room even though I had a dnd signal lighten up . last thing is there are lot of hotels which gave you the same level of service with much lower price than this one .

                            The service that was relieved, the location, the price and the comfort and cleanliness of the room

                            The only thing I can think of is the water temperature. The shower was not very hot, had to run the water for at least 5 minutes before it got luke warm, otherwise it was freezing!?

                            The design was amazing and the staff was very friendly.

                            Most of the day the pool area does not have any sun. According to the staff the sun only hits the pool area for a short periode around 3pm - 4pm.

                            The staff was very friendly

                            Unfortunately we had to change our room, as the reception didn't cater to our booked requirements, only after 2 hours of constant follow up we were able to change. Room cleaning was average, every time drinking glasses were not refilled and we constantly had to order everything, what the room should have available upon check in and cleaning. I understand that the hotel was fully booked during the Formula 1 weekend, but from a 5 star hotel as well as for the increased room price during that weekend, I expect a 5 star hotel to cater a five star service. The pool area does not have any sun during day time. The hotel is difficult to access and poor signage on the roads

                            Enjoyed relaxing by the pool and abundant choice of food in lunch buffet. I was offered a late check-out (3 pm) at no extra charge and all reception / consierge staff left a very pleasant impression. Room service always arrived on time and was eager to please. The level of Wi-Fi signal was good most of the time, especially in the morning, deteriorating towards P.M... I enjoyed a few spa treatments; if you are a solo female traveller after a relaxing break in Abu Dhabi - look no further.

                            At times some of the food on the menu was not available (this goes for both the O'Cill pool bar and room service). In the afternoon the pool was full of screaming and splashing children. After several complaints the pool staff was instructed to manage the children and steer them towards a dedicated kids pool, but after a period of peace and quiet the noise was back! So don't forget your music and headphones if you want to relax by the pool! :-)
