Feels a bit run down We visited 6 years ago and also 5 years ago. It was great. Now feels like the hotel needs some TLC. The pool in particular is dirty and there are tiles going moody and falling off. Disappointing to come back and see the hotel not looking great

Great hotel and lovely room in 7th floor. Especially good service from the staff in Fairmont Gold, included Maris, Jules, Stephen from F&B and Victoria at reception, though the housekeeper we had was lovely too. All facilities were great the inly negative was that the website says you get breakfast in the Gold lounge however this fairmont didnt have it and having stayed at Dubai Fairmont and experienced the food (including breakfast) in their gold lounge we were a bit disappointed. Perhaps the website should be updated.

Lovely Comfortable Hotel

Pros: Spacious rooms and I recommend get a Mosque view room.
Cons: Attentiveness to customers, concierge service, beach side service, buffet food options
Location: Location good for abu dhabi, airport 20mins away, ferrari world and waterpark 25mins away.
Lovely hotel with what you would expect from a five star hotel however the service and quality doesn't match that of the five star hotels in Dubai! The hotel had more of a business feel to it than anything. The food was a bit samey in the evenings and if you like curries and fish then you will be fine on the half board option. Food and drinks are very pricey in the hotel so try and book a deal before hand.

Super family and friends get away

Hotel was lovely but a bit too far away from most amenities. The bar facilities were a little lacking and the food and drink we believe was a little bit on the expensive side. The staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough. We would have preferred an outside area to enjoy food and drinks in the evening and also a wider choice of both. The beach was lovely but could do with a little investment into the sun loungers all in all we had a lovely time

Nice Beach hotel

Rooms are very comfortable and spacious. Cleaniness of Bathroom can be improved for a 5 star Hotel. Hotel staff is very friendly and delivering excellent quality of service. Concierge (Dave) was very professional and represented the Fairmonts very well, in terms of customer care. Hotel Location is bit in distance with the so called downtown area, but due to cheap transportation, not a big issue. Highly recommeded to stay!
