I stayed at Beach Rotana for a night. My stay was pleasant and they upgraded my room. The food was delicious and stay was very friendly and warm. Will stay more often. The abudhabhi mall was in walking distance.

Being a member of the Beach Club for a long time, we often eat in Bay View. The staff is very professional and polite, no matter if it is extremely hot or crowded.

Being a member of the Beach Club for a long time, we often eat in Bay View. The staff is very professional and polite, no matter if it is extremely hot or crowded. They always assist timely and politely. Everything works smoothly under Rafi's supervision. Thank you! Being a regular guest, we frequently order the same meals... but every time, it is slightly different and personalized by chef Anthony and his team, who know our tastes and preferences. Amazing experience, both the taste and presentation of the food! My special compliments to Samraj, always available to help and recommend (even remembering previous orders and suggesting different ones). Thank you all! Read less

Good resort based living at the right end of town. A well-run mature property with attentive staff at all the key touch points and an excellent gym. . Can get noisy and busy with family groups at weekends and in the school hols.

I am an Exclusive Rotana member since 2014 and love Beach Rotana and the restaurants. I would have stayed at this property at least 6 times. This time we were staying from 2nd to 4th April with the done around package. the whole experience got spoilt due to one staff, named Jenine at Gardens. She is the host and I was enquiring about why the draft beer is not included in the all inclusive package and she very rudely replied that she doesn't make the menu. I have never faced such rude behaviour at any of the roatana property and I immediately reported the incident to the manager. Manager immediately came back saying that she apologises for the same. It didn't end there, from that point she stopped attending our table and kept sending others. Even the next day she was attending all the tables except ours and she only came when she was called . I found it extremely insulting. I don't think she fits the hospitality industry and would urge the management to take some strict action. Only because of this incident my review is 3 but otherwise it would have been a 5 star rating as always. Read less

Mixed reviews on the overall experience Where certain food outlets and staff would go the extra mile majority of others couldn't be bothered to do so. Staycation with the all around dinning package From having to wait over 11/2 hrs to be served drinks and food arriving literally 2 hrs later to having to ask at the breakfast area for a coffee on a to go cup to be told we couldn't do that (do understand covid-19 measures, however in the past during covid-19 this was not an issue) to be told you can go to the cafe which was closed and even though they used the same coffee area as the breakfast to make the coffee I was charged for it but couldn't bill it to our room and had to go to the front desk to pay and the receptionist when I asked why I couldn't charge or why was the to go cup not included had an attitude telling me "We never offered the go cup on the premium dine around package!" Absolutely unprofessional and not even welcoming and not even look at me when I was asking the queries. We came as a large group (+/- 20 people and kids) and these little events is what makes places like this loose clientele ... Better yet even as a Rotana Rewards member to get such type of service and attention for a lack luster staff (not in it's entirety) - Bay View, Prego's, Trader Vic's, Benihana, Rodeo Grill, house cleaning staff and porters all very friendly and helpful and above all professional. The receptionist who welcomed us on our arrival very professional and helpful as well (provided exceptional service and very informative) Read less
