Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi Yas Island

Abu Dhabi, Middle East

The hotel

Looking out over the greens of Yas Links to the Gulf Sea beyond, this outpost of the Crowne Plaza family has a prime spot on Yas Island. Abu Dhabi’s traveller hub, the island’s attractions include Warner Bros. World and Yas Waterworld for the young (and young at heart) and Ferrari World and the F1 circuit for those drawn to the emirate for its thrilling motorsports – and this contemporary hotel gives you good access to it all. Just a walk from Yas Beach, Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi – Yas Island has five bars and restaurants, bringing you international favourites and exquisite Lebanese treats, but Yas Mall is also nearby if you fancy dining out. And, whether you’re here for a holiday or a simple stopover, there’s plenty to tempt you back to base, from the swimming pool to those beautiful views.

Service standards dramatically dropped over the years! Our room wasn’t cleaned in our entire 2-night stay whilst there’s a request on the door, some of the items we requested weren’t given although acknowledged, hotel manager & concierge provided inaccurate info about park tickets validity and the former was no more available when we were denied access at the park and badly needed help, bed is submerged on one side whilst we’ve highlighted the need prior to checking in, breakfast staff wasn’t attentive (but thanks to the Restaurant Manager for saving the day). We booked a suite and were surprised with its poor standards. It was bare and with old, low quality furniture! See the photos. The internet was soooo slow; but we appreciate the IT for trying to address the concern. Two stars rating are solely for the Restaurant Manager who gave us our hot coffee when his waiter forgot about it and Falen from the Reservations Desk who was very thorough at the time of our booking.

Hotel is welcoming.Staff friendly. Pool area is ok but sun beds are worn out with torn loungers. Breakfast today was poor. Tables not cleaned after use. Dirty plates and cups all over. When tables are finally cleaned they are not reset for next customers. We had to chase staff for cutlery,tea and coffee. Lack of staff. Poor choice of food.… Read more

When tables are finally cleaned they are not reset for next customers. We had to chase staff for cutlery,tea and coffee. Lack of staff. Poor choice of food. Turkey bacon,chicken sausages etc. Stills bar is Ok. Happy hour 4-8pm. Fish and chips very good. Rooms clean and tidy but don’t expect to get shampoo etc replaced so take your own. Not the best but not the worst. Depends on what you are used to. Read less

Excellent location for Yas Island points of interest (three theme parks, racing circuit, shopping centre and beach). Very friendly hotel staff, clean rooms and free bus transport nearby. Nice pool area and surrounding grounds.

Hotel is out of the city and if you are looking for a relaxing break, close to leisure activities and relaxing potentially a good base. I was there for work and allocated a "city" side room - so no balcony which was a real shame considering the location. However my employer may not have paid the extra price!

Hotel is out of the city and if you are looking for a relaxing break, close to leisure activities and relaxing potentially a good base. I was there for work and allocated a "city" side room - so no balcony which was a real shame considering the location. However my employer may not have paid the extra price! Hotel is surrounded by building work, so was difficult to walk anywhere relaxing outside the hotel before or after work. There is a bus to the beach but it is closed after 6pm so never saw it. Pool area was good, with plenty of loungers Food quality good - but the service was quite erratic at times and took ages to get served in Stills (20 minutes to even be asked if you wanted a drink and it was not busy) My last day was the start of holidays - the place was very busy with lots of children. So for families good - but I'd avoid it in holiday periods if I was going for a break. There were screaming children running up and down the corridor outside my room on the last evening. But overall quite a nice place - certainly would consider staying again Read less
