Very good and friendly service! Very nice pool and beach. Huge breakfast buffet. All very clean and very well maintained. Great hotel for a beach day but also for exploring the city. Big room with a nice balcony. We enjoyed every minute!

The staff were so friendly and helpful. We went to the formula 1 so didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel. There was some building work going on nearby but it didn't bother us. I could see how it might prove to be annoying if you wanted to chill,out.

BUT still charges for wifi in rooms / around the hotel. In 2016! Amazing eh!! Overall, great place, nice staff, perfect for families and quieter breaks with stunning views of palaces ☺️ Wifi just a major sore point 😞

From arrival to departure, the service was great. The staff go out of their way to be of assistance. The hotel has excellent facilities. The rooms are big, very clean and comfortable. The swimming pool area is awesome with a play area for smaller kids close by.

I've been for the weekend there. I choosed this place based on people's review, the view, and the location. The price was high, but I would not mind if I have much relaxation and a good night to escape from my job's tension. I reached there by 11 pm. The receptionist was friendly and everything seemed to be fine. She... More

The Hotel is well located. On our short trip - a stop over in Abu Dhabi - we had the chance to visit a very small part of the city. There are other luxury hotels around,especially the Emirate Palace Hotel, a sumptuous hotel, more on the outside than the inside. The Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana had a very nice... More

Had a fascinating 4 night stay in luxurious Rayhaan during my conference. Even though I stayed in a classic (double) room in 5th floor, I was amazed with the massive space and spectacular view of the Presidential and Emirates Palaces. Also, I don't want to get up and out of the bed because of the bed's sheer softness and comfort.... More
