It’s our first time here in Rixos but definitely not the last. Had been trying different hotels especially in Abu Dhabi but Rixos is really the best experience we’ve had. Not to mention the All Inclusive offer. It’s super B. All staff are very much accommodating especially Ms. Roxanne in the restaurant. The room is very clean and well-sanitized. Oh, we even got an upgraded room because it’s a birthday celebration of my children. Read less
