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.

Had stayed in Crowne Plaza for a day during my transit. The staff is courteous and very helpful and location is excellent. The food served in the restaurant is excellent although a few more vegetarian options could be added. Looking forward to coming back again.

1. when I got in room, there was a strong smell in the room. I stayed there for half hour thinking it may disappear soon. but the smell was still there. so I called reception. the reception said they would send somebody to my room to check. BUT AFTER 20 min nobody came. I had to call again. after that, a guy came and it was found that some equipment (like air humidifier? but with very strong and IRRITATING Smell THAT CAUSED me cough) WAS PUT JUST BESIDES MY DOOR. my point is: very slow response, why put it in my door, IRRITATING material in high concentration. 2. after the first problem solved, which cost more than 30 min, I prepared to go out for dinner. I tried to put something in the safe BOX. however, it was NOT WORKING. all the time error. I called reception again. one technician came. he checked for some time and tried to fix it, but it failed! he can not fix it. he needed to get a new one to replace the safe box in my room. so he went out to get another one. it wasted me another 20 min something? or 30min? I don't remember. I was quite upset already as I only had one night there and because of the hotel, I already wasted much time and my mood was affected too. 3. I called duty manager, he offered to change to another same room in level 1. I rejected. As the review will be worse. Also I did not want to waste more time in packing my staff and moving again. No further offer or compensation provided after that. 4. as platinum member, I was upgraded to superior suite, which I really appreciate the upgrade. However, this is the worst view suite, with the window facing neither sea nor plaza. it is facing the next building. You can check hotel map to see where room 362 is. It is really bad view. anyway, it is an upgrade. I can't not complain too much. But if I knew it earlier, I would not accept such upgrade. I prefer better review with standard room. 5. as platinum member, usually we get fruit basket. However, in this hotel, until 10 pm, nothing was provided. I called reception to ask whether the hotel policy has such policy. Until then they sent the fruit basket. My point is not how much value the fruit basket is, I just feel they did not deliver what it should. 6. there is only one toilet for this suite. so if you stay in the living room, you need go to bedroom to use toilet, which is a little inconvenient. Overall, this stay was really bad experience for me. When I checked out, the duty manager said they will do better next time. But r u kidding? Based on such experience, do you think I should come back? What did u do during my stay? It is too late to take serious Action until the guest checks out Read less

Apart from the great and kind staff the hotel itself is below par. Rooms are nice and clean but there is a huge construction beside the building. One either faces it hears it. There is no direct access to the beach and beware of mosquitos!!!!

Stayed here for 8 days recently, taking an all inclusive deal and booking one of the suites. The room was large and airy, offering kitchenette with breakfast bar, living room and separate bedroom. The bathroom was large and provided double sinks, which my wife believes has probably gone some way to saving our marriage ! The all inclusive deal provides beers wines and spirits as well as the other usual refreshments, and allows three meals per day which can be taken in any of the 4 restaurants on site. The buffet “Jing Asia” was particularly good, with a huge variety of food on offer at each sitting from breakfast through lunch and dinner. The staff were very helpful and friendly, especially the guys running the pool bar, and they take very good care of you. The hotel itself is in good order and clean throughout. The grounds are well kept and the pool is a delight to swim in, also having a pool bar that you can sit in and order drinks. We went here for some winter sun and it provided everything we could have wished for. Some reviews on here have pointed out that there is a construction site directly opposite the rear of the hotel, and that is true, however it wasn’t an issue for us, and we never noticed any intrusion into the quality of our stay. Already planning our next trip back here again! Read less
