We have just returned from a February half term break. Unfortunately the weather was dreadful, cloudy every single day. However, this did not spoil our holiday. The hotel is immaculate. Typical of many Emirate hotels, it is full of marble floors, wonderful chandeliers and general grandeur. We were half board - The breakfasts were really good and had everything you...

We stayed for 8 the Ritz and it was a wonderful experience. The staff was very, very friendly. The breakfast and dinner were delicious and the bedroom excellent. A beautiful pool with warm salted water for every age.

We stayed for 2 nights for our honeymoon, and I am so glad we did! We wanted to explore Abu Dhabi before staying in Dubai. The Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi is everything you would expect from a Ritz Carlton property. Classy and elegant, all staff nice and professional. The hotel is located across from the Grand Mosque and offers shuttle...

Firstly the hotel is beautiful, its opposite the beautiful mosque,fabulous atmosphere and extremely attentive and helpful staff. The breakfast buffet is very simple and something you would find in a average 3-4 star hotel, the only thing which is kind of different is that you can have fresh baby coconut. However the bakery did not even have gluten free bread...

The room we were given was excellent, having views of both the pool and the canal. Breakfast, which was included in our stay, was amazing with so much choice. We loved the pool area and the gardens....

Ok if the places on the other side of the canal are unavailable. Steak house and Asian restaurant were excellent but the other restaurants and bar are mediocre at best. Everything is pricey and not worth the price for what you get in the end. The hotel pushes itself as high end but isn't so much. Little store for amenities,...

This is such a fabulous, spotless,beautiful and comfortable hotel. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Pool is so large and a lovely temperature. The breakfast was delicious and served in a lovely spacious restaurant with a really relaxed atmosphere. Don't miss a visit to the Mosque which is so close to the hotel but take the free shuttle. Don't attempt...
