The WB Abu Dhabi, Curio Collection by Hilton

Abu Dhabi, Middle East

Virgin rating

The hotel

The world’s first Warner Bros.™ hotel is here, and it’s better than you can imagine. Think surprise character appearances, classic cartoons at the “dive in” theatre, the iconic batmobile at the entrance of the hotel…. – and that’s not all folks! Located next to the Warner Bros. World™ theme park, the world of entertainment extends into an impressive hotel that is perfect for adults as well as little ones. From the lobby right down to the individual rooms, the hotel is filled with Warner Bros. memorabilia, artwork and TV props that bring the animations to life, and what could be more exhilarating than being greeted by your favourite character whilst having breakfast at Sidekicks? The dive-in theatre at the Matinee pool allows everyone to enjoy their favourite Warner Bros. classics immersed in chilled water, a welcome relief in the summer heat. If you’re in the mood for a bit more sophistication, drop the children off at the kid’s club and head up to the Overlook – the rooftop infinity pool where you’ll enjoy panoramic views and a fantastic poolside menu of sushi, cocktails and plenty more to indulge in.

We stayed at the hotel between 11-14th august, the hotel us veey well located with a walking distance connect to warner brothers and yas water park, in all hotels you get free shuttle service to all theme oars if you are staying at any of the yas island hotels The hotel is newly made and worth the stay if you have little kids as you will disney characters coming to the dinner and breakfast restaurants for you to click pictures with you, otherwise you can stay at 1/3rd the cost at double tree Hilton which is common wall to WB hotel and is owned byvthe same group Frankly not much options in the food category for vegetarians, same stuff was seeved all 3 days so was not impressed with the food especially for the rates at which the room is priced, it doesnt give you a luxury feeling like disney hotels in hong kong or paris However we need to put in a very good word for mr DIAA MOUSTAFA in the sidekicks restaurant who went out of his way asking all guests what they would like to have for breakfast and what else he could get made besides what is available at the counters, we found him doing this on all 3 days, very sweet guy genuinely helping guests eith their food requests Read less

We stayed for a week. Me, my wife and 2 kids. Firstly the rooms were very clean and staff was amazing. In the restaurant (sidekicks) we had another experience. A very bad one. Every diner (buffet) we saw israeli tourists misbehave. They took cut fruits with bare hands and put it back again in the bowl. Someone just put his finger in a piece of pizza to feel how warm it was. She left again and didnt took it with her. Very nice for the next person! Other people eat immediately at the buffet and lick their fingers with their tongue, just to use the same fingers to open the lids of the closed dishes. Instead of relaxing and enjoying my diner i always was stressed and watched the buffet so me and my family wouldnt take a “spoiled” piece of food. Nice holiday feeling right? When i told the staff they just told me that they arent allowed to say something to this guests. Hello management? Second very annoying fact: in the pool the same guests walk around with glasses of beer and other alcohol instead of staying at the poolbar. They spill alcohol in the poolwater. No one of the staff says anything. This is very very unrespectful for the other guests, especially the local muslim ones. I just was very satisfied with the cleaning staff and the hotel checkin counter. But i dont think i come again and spend my money again to this hotel. 5 stars? Thats a joke. And i dont hesitate to write down my experiences in a well read travel blog. With some pictures added as a proof. Read less

We all enjoyed our time in the sidekick restaurant, they had a chocolate hunt while we were waiting for our meal and our boys had fun looking for it, the food was very delicious and Raryeeta was very helpful and kind. All in all the experience was wonderful and will definitely recommend it.
