From the moment we arrived, the service we received was excellent. All the staff were friendly and attentive, especially the team behind reception. We stayed for 3 nights in a fantastic suite, on a half board basis. The room was incredibly spacious, with lovely views of the marina, and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast and Dinner were served in the Garage restaurant every day, with a set menu at dinner time. There was a lot of choice for your main course, but I think it would be even better if they had more starter options. Again, service in the restaurant was generally very good. The hotel is conveniently located for all the Yas Island attractions, and there is even a free shuttle taking you to the likes of Yas Mall, Ferrari World and Warner Bros world approx. every 30 mins. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in Abu Dhabi. Read less

Excellent layover stay on my way the Maldives. I got an amazing suite upgrade for my Marriott Lifetime Gold status. Room was probably top 5 that I’ve ever stayed in (Ritz Carlton Gongzhu is #1). Restaurant was good and the rooftop bar had sick drinks and hookah with a glowing view of the F1 track. #love

I have been staying in the hotel for 2 weeks now and its really a satisfying experience. The staff is very courteous and services are guest friendly. Aznive is very helpful in catering to individual preferences and is always reachable. Exec. chef Tobias is very friendly and accommodative in providing personalized services. Chef Alamgir and chef Vibin are experts in their field of preparing delicious meals and go that extra mile to serve you. I have been really pleased with the in-room dining experience and personalized meal preferences provided by chef Vibin. Gautam from housekeeping is very jovial and does his job to perfection. The rooms are spacious, have amenities like coffee maker, kettle, mini fridge etc, and offer great views of marina and race track. Thank you so much team for providing such memorable experience so far. Hope this bond strengthens over the next few weeks. Read less
