Friendly staff at reception on arrival. Great breakfast spread and staff. Not much to do in the area which was very much a building site. I recommend taking the free bus to and from Yas Mall for meals to getaway from the collection of hotels.

We had a great one day stop over here on our Cruise. It is a small island and it is therefore recomended you go on one of the safaris (which We did not, and We regretted it). On one side you have a lagoon between this small island and the other island that holds the reservation. The Beach has a lot of rocks and makes it very difficult to get in… Read more
We had a great one day stop over here on our Cruise. It is a small island and it is therefore recomended you go on one of the safaris (which We did not, and We regretted it). On one side you have a lagoon between this small island and the other island that holds the reservation. The Beach has a lot of rocks and makes it very difficult to get in the water, but once you are in the water it is Absolutely delish. There are free Sun loungers and sombrillas all over the Beach.

I hail from Mumbai-India. This review is exclusively for friends for whom hospitality experience is of Paramount importance, planning a surprise, confused as to which is the best hotel in AbuDhabi for couple or family (Jumeirah at Etihad and others from the long list), if you are Motorsports enthusiast and like to stay at the Marina. I had planned a surprise for my better half and was really confused wrt the above factors. Moreover ease of travel to all the parks on Yas island as well as connectivity to the airport was also in focus. Due to my inclination to Motorsports, I selected W AbuDhabi as my choice. Let me tell u, I had so may requests of early checkin-late checkout- anniversary celebration- special requests, etc etc. YAMILE at the reception, the kindest human I ever met who went out of the way to take care of all our requests including that of my partner. We are pure vegetarian and the food at Angaar restaurant in the hotel was very mesmerising and Mr Aari and team again worked to create a surprise by decorating the entire restaurant for us on our anniversary occasion. Mr. Biren at Concierge desk is so informative and he will help you with all the attractions and his quick tip where u can save a buck. The entire staff was very courteous. Quick tip- There is someone racing each day on the track. So no matter if the F1 is not scheduled, you can experience the adrenaline here. On every Tuesday and Sunday, you can ride a bike (also provided by them) on the track for free. So plan your stay accordingly. PS to W- Team members such as YAMILE is feather on the cap. I am proud of W to have such a lovely teammember for which I have planned to visit the 2020 expo with my family and stay only at the W. Read less

This is by far the most amazing hotel we’ve stayed at. The check in and check out process was a breeze, and the hotel staff were friendly, helpful, and great. The room was very clean. We stayed in the corner king bed suite. The room was huge with a living room and separate bedroom and dressing room. It also had a guest bathroom and a full bath. The toiletries in the bathroom were very generous: full sized toiletries rather than small bottles. The room runs on technology. For example, the lights and curtains open by using the iPad and remote control. The hotel also has a pool, a gym, and a kids club. The kids club was a life savior when my husband was tired and didn’t want to go out. The club is free for hotel guests for 3 hours a day. The kids club is quite big with a library, PlayStation area, bricks, and other toys. The hotel has 3 restaurants and a bar. We always dined at the Garage. Dinner and breakfast were great at this universal restaurant. The breakfast is one of the best I’ve seen in a hotel. There is a large selection of food from different parts of the world (Arabic, Indian, and Asian). If you plan on costing WB, Ferrari World, Yas Mall, and Yas Waterworld, don’t be afraid to use the complimentary bus that takes you to these stops. The bus runs every 20 minutes so make sure you get the bus schedule from the hotel. There’s also a bus line that takes you to the beach which is complimentary if you’re staying at the hotel. I have to say that staying at the suite was quite expensive, but it was worth the money. I would definitely stay here again. Read less

The breakfast buffet was world-class. Our second stay we had a standard room but nothing to fault and amazing value. Loved the rooftop pool on the 7th floor and the service from the staff there.
