We have just come back from a week in the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr. We had booked a room facing the lagoon and mosque. The room was on the 6th floor with floor to ceiling windows from one end of the room to the other. We left the curtains open at all times and were amazed by the fabulous view....

Perfectly located between city and airport. Awesome morning sunshine breakfast with the view of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the architectural elegance. Quiet and scenic. Excellent time to stay is between November & March.

Stayed there for 3 nights and apart from the pickup from the airport, all was excellent. Superb staff throughout, all of whom were very professional and attentive. I would recommend this for somewhere to stay when in AD

The Fairmont hotels are always good, but the service here was great. From check in till departure I really could not fault the service. All types of meal deals going on in the hotel. Something for most tastes and budgets. Like most hotels in the middle east the drinks are over priced,but that's the way of it. Well done the...

Reviewed 16 December 2015

Top quality, excellent spacious rooms with a beautiful view (creek side). The amenities were good for a business trip, with a good varied breakfast, and an outdoor bar for the evenings surrounded by palm trees and the water. Only real complaint is the wifi was quite patchy and dropped out a lot. Would definitely stay again.

This is an amazing hotel, and probably one of the best that I have stayed in. Second time around it still impresses just as much!
