Great hotel close to the airport

Pros: Everything
Cons: for me nothing
Location: We used as the hotel as a stopover between Australia and the UK
Very short but a great experience. All aspects of our stay were superb, with very attentive staff from the front door to the apartment.

Pros: Our room was maintained to an extremely high level and Kanai our room manager left lovely touches to greet us when we returned to it in the evenings.T
Cons: There was a hefty charge for our daughter to visit/ use the pool or beach.We had to go to hers to avoid unnecessary expense for her which was a shame.
Location: The location was well suited for our purpose
Al Raha Beach Hotel Staff contributed in making our stay in Abu Dhabi a wonderful experience.They were so friendly,helpful and courteous throughout our visit.

Amazing experience

we upgraded to a deluxe room on arrival and our room was amazing. the view of the beach from our balcony was stunning. Food was excellent but a bit pricey, ate in the Irish bar on two occassions and could highly recommend there. the pool area was kept very clean and there were plenty of loungers available.
