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.

I am a IHG Spire member and stay in all kinds of IHG properties all over the world. IHG main brands are Holiday Inn, HIE, Crowne Plaza and Intercontinental. There is nothing consistent across various properties in any one brand. And nothing consistent between the US properties and those outside. Some will provide breakfast, some will not. Some… Read more
I am a IHG Spire member and stay in all kinds of IHG properties all over the world. IHG main brands are Holiday Inn, HIE, Crowne Plaza and Intercontinental. There is nothing consistent across various properties in any one brand. And nothing consistent between the US properties and those outside. Some will provide breakfast, some will not. Some will give access to Executive Lounge, some will not. Some will provide an upgrade even without asking, some will not do so even after asking. Some will give welcome points AND amenity, some will not. I stayed here for one night booking a standard room and they upgraded me to a suite but refused access to Executive Lounge or breakfast. I had arrived here from the Crowne Plaza in Dubai Deira staying for 4 nights. I was given an unasked for upgrade, access to the Executive Lounge and also breakfast in the main restaurant as per my choice. Go figure. When I mentioned this to the front office manager, she pooh poohed me and sent me away. All suites in all properties usually come with access to the Executive Lounge, but not here. The hotel itself is new and sleek and is convenient only for Yas Island activities and close to the airport. You will need a taxi to go any where. Whoever is responding to this review (Sophie / Pascal), please do not bother with a generic or patronizing response. I am not one of them. Please respond only with a specific response addressing the specific issue mentioned here. Read less

Stills bar & restaurant is great when you’re holidaying on Yas Island. Staff are superb, very friendly & competent. Anita the housekeeper is wonderful. I always pop into the restaurant to visit her. She’s a credit to the hotel 🙌

We stayed recently as part of an Etihad stopover package. Our room was very comfortable and had a good balcony with two chairs and a table. Breakfast and dinner were both served buffet style and were very tasty. Staff were helpful and service was good. We also swam a couple of times and enjoyed the pool area. The hotel is relatively close to the airport, which is good for early starts and late arrivals, although further from some tourist sights than other hotels. Taxis are however relatively cheap, and easily available, and there is a complimentary bus service, both on Yas Island and to The Louvre. Read less
