I’m giving this hotel 3 stars only since it offers good value for money if you are booking specially to have easy access to Yas island parks since they offer free admission tickets to the parks and very close to it with good breakfast. The hotel itself is crowded with children which can be annoying if you travel there for business or as couple only. Standard rooms are a bit small but overall the hotel should be in your shortlist if you look for vacation with parks access as one package. Read less

Food was over priced, buffet was very limited. Staff seemed unhappy to be there. Room service was average. We have stayed in over 60 hotels in the UAE and this one rates amongst the lowest. I suggest staying somewhere else.

We were all disappointed with the overall experience. After visiting the Louvre and checking-in we went to the pool to get a refreshed the pool was over crowded so after a while went back to our rooms. No evening turndown service provided to any of the 4 rooms nor were there any bath slippers or toothbrushes more irritating was the blinds which were draped on the bathroom windows so dusty and my kids though was fun to pull while I was taking a shower . The minibar was fully stocked however the water and wine glasses were not clean plus I found a few expired items to my shock. My brother asked for a baby cot at checked-in. After waiting for a few hours checked with housekeeping attended who he meet on the corridor said that it was not available, he asked if he could help us with anything else and gave a few more bottles of water. On my way down the next day near the lifts I meet a security guard and a manager whom I smiled and greeted but got no response. The breakfast at choices restaurant was good. I would like to mention that there was no thank u or farewell hen we left. After going back to our rooms and calling for our luggage to be brought down we proceeded down to check out. At the main reception I handed over the expired jar of mixed nuts and informed about the expired can of Pepsi for which I was thanked. Read less
