Came to the hotel to celebrate our anniversary, heard from our friends a lot of good feedback's about the hotel, however just when we arrived we’ve been informed that hotel at the moment don’t have king sized bed room and were given us twin beds. Got very upset from the beginning since we came to celebrate our anniversary and we several times before informed about it our travel agency, moved to a king sized bed room the next day, but had to pack and unpack the luggage's again.Overall hotel is nice , but to be honest not for the couples, too many noisy running kids everywhere, we didn’t even received any compliments for our anniversary. But staff everywhere is so friendly and hardworking, trying to clean up the chaos Read less

Not a single dish was average. Everything was beyond amazing. He went above and beyond to make sure the setting was great and the buffet and live stations were extraordinary. I recommend chef Cesar for your next catering or hosted event as he is highly experienced on different cuisines. He brought different infusions and made interesting presentations. Read less

We had the most amazing time at the Rixos hotel at Saadiyat island, and at all the associated activities that were arranged during the holiday. We would like to commend a few people who work there but literally everyone was attentive, kind and gone out of their way, so we could have a great time. At the sports centre I have used many of the activities, Nikita, Marianna, Juliia are very well trained and excellent sports professionals, who were approachable, made the classes fun and interesting, I wish I had more time to try out all the classes as there is a wide range of sporting activities to do for different abilities. They are clearly amazing. Manish- looked after our room beautifully. Matt and Richard always made sure we were looked after well at breakfast time. Waitress Anisa was also a lovely. Gayan-at the Mermaid restaurant provided a magnificent time for our group and the food was amazing. Christina, Sushita, Joanne and Sonu were the lovely waitresses at the evening parties at the bar who were kind and excellent at their job. Erelyn at the Italian and Bippin at the Japanese restaurant were great. Tochi at the spa made the most amazing fruit and vegetable juices, again I could have spent the whole week there , it was so relaxing but there was so many things to do, we would really love to go back again. Dev the concierge was ever so helpful and ever the professional arranging our Dubai day trip and was always seeking to help in any way he could. We would highly recommend this beautiful hotel and it is so well run, you can definitely relax and enjoy your holiday there. Maria and Martin Read less
