While travelling with my teen son, the Yas Rotana provided excellent service, location, rooms, pool area and overall experience. I would definately stay here again and highly recommend it. I greatly appreciated the free shuttle bus to all the local attractions, including Yas mall and amusement parks.

We had a good stay at this hotel for three nights with two young kids. The room was very comfortable and the restaurants were good. The buffet could have had more selection. The chaps organising excursions was friendly but could have been more helpful. The pool was cold in the afternoon without the sun.
