The Fairmont specific lovely smell once you enter the premises, the warm greetings of the bell boys, porters and concierge (Jimmie remembered us and is always so helpful and cheerful), the swift check-in,...

This hotel is just stunning. The service and staff is just excellent. Everyone is very nice and helpful. We tried every single restaurant in the hotel and the food was really good. We can definitely recommend the steak restaurant. Best part of the hotel is the private beach and pool.

the service at the hotel is amazing. Its location saves you the hustle of going into inside abu dhabi, and has all the services you need. Its restaurants provide a variety of cuisines, and its pool is great. The beach view to Zayed Mosque is very calm and relaxing. However the prices are a bit expensive for almost everything
