It was a very wonderful experience to stay in this hotel. Aside from it's great design, the location is one of the best. We arrived at the hotel early in the morning. Thank you very much to Emad Ben for a warm welcome and accomodated us to check in earlier. He even gave us a very nice view of Yas Marina and Marina Circuit from our balcony. The room was spacious and clean. Thank you also to Fairzan who guided and led us to our room, 2409. He even took a video of us while we were entering the room. The food from Garage, where we had our breakfast buffet, were also great. Most of the fresh fruits were my favorite. The staffs were all friendly. There's free shuttles going to and from the theme parks, Ferrari World, Warner Bros. and Water World park. and also to other hotels, like Hilton and Warner Bros. where the other delegates of Forever stayed. In summary, we really had an awesome experience in this hotel. We will definitely refer this to our friends. Couple Conrad & Jane Padilla FGR22 Delegates from Philippines Read less
