If you whant a calm and plesant vacation in UAE, forgett about Dubai......stay at Beach Rotana in Abu Dhabi instead. Nice beach/garden/pool areas, excellent restaurants and fantastic service. Go for "All Inclusive" as food and drinks othervise are very expensive. Not only the buffe is included.....you also will have a choice of a special free menu att all other restaurants including free drinks. Im a regular visitor to Dubai for business, but this trip to Beach Rotana was one of my best experience.

On arriving to Abu Dhabi and thinking we were on the beach! But had I properly researched...my mistake, hotel bang in the city, with man made very small beach, on last few days saw jelly fish as tide went out and when it came back in looked like dirty bath water! On check in 2adults,1 child, given room with king size bed, changed to two 3/4 beds not really adequate for 9 nights. Again probably our fault as we specifically asked travel agent for beds for 3 persons , no put u up! Again specified all inclusive which isn’t the easiest to come by in UEA. Told by travel agents yes all inclusive ( to which I imagine is without the exception of the obvious fillet steak / lobster etc) you will be given a menu, you get two/ three choices of starter/ main/Pudding off the main menu anything else is an extra charge! Again I feel let down by travel agents rather than hotel as when you specify all inclusive you don’t expect extra charges. Buffet is available and again top service ... Jane !! Fantastic Rodeo grill, Ardvrimda ( I think) Indian restaurant .Arimuma Sea food restaurant Mismi Lack of sun would be the only grumble, come 3pm and pool is totally in shade and that’s due to hotel position, lovely big pool though and great pool bar. If you want a full days sun you need to be on the beachfront, and be up at the crack of dawn for a sun bed ! Hotel is spotlessly clean, if you love shopping the mall is on your door step. I have to say on check in it felt that we were in the wrong place as it feels very business like, not for holiday makers , but as the days went by it felt more comfortable. Overall had a lovely holiday celebrating my husbands birthday and met some great people. 😉

We have just returned from a third stay at the Rotana although previous stays were prior to 2007, so we knew it was an older hotel in Abu Dhabi after staying in the city many times. It still looks good in our opinion. We stayed in a Tower Club room which included a private lounge for breakfast, afternoon tea and cocktail "hour" and free wifi. We were well looked after by Ana, Joseph, Lucas and the rest of the team. We booked half board which included our main meal in Essence but we did pay extra to have dinner in Prego and also in Benihana, Japanese restaurant with live cooking in front of us. Down sides? The pool bar looked a bit understaffed the first few days of our stay and drinks were taking a long time but I think management noticed or were spoken to and more staff appeared later in the week. A great stay in Abu Dhabi once again.

Wonderful hotel and excellent service. Very pleasant stay and a great relaxing time on the beach and the pool. Excellent view of Abu Dhabi by night. Great breakfast and helpful information on trips. Thank you!

The Beach Rotana hotel has a great atmosphere, good service and some very nice restaurants and beach area. The room I stayed in was very clean but especially the bathroom is in desperate need of refurbishment. The breakfast accommodates for all needs and offer a very broad range of dishes. I had one meal at the in-house steak restaurant - Rodeo I think it was called and 1 meal at their Italian restaurant Prego. Both offering very good service and nice, tasteful meals. Rodeo turned out to be my favorite.

The staff was polite, efficient and responsive, The facility is nice, clean and comfortable however it coud be slightly renovated to reach even higher standards. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. I would have expected a shower separated from the tab for the value and a room a bit bigger, less crowded and dark. Tv sport channels were not available while wifi was working fine.The staff was polite, efficient and responsive, The facility is nice, clean and comfortable however it coud be slightly renovated to reach even higher standards.

Excellent service and accommodation. The seven high quality restaurants also provided us the opportunity to sample varied cuisine every night, which made it fun for all the family. Located on the beach but also next to the shopping mall makes it a perfect location.

Good location, joined to the mall. Plenty of restaurants on the hotel ground (although they are expensive). Food and drink quality was high. Staff were excellent. Hotel was spotless. Pool area and gym were very good.

I often go to Abu Dhabi for work, and every time I stay at Rotana Beach, because every trip is a holiday at Rotana Beach. It is a hotel with an excellent location, it has a wonderful lobby for my meetings, and a gorgeous breakfast. I highly recommend this Hotel.

Beautiful Hotel with 7 Restaurants. High quality drinks and food. Japsper from the Japanese Restaurant is the best waiter ever! Don‘t miss to book the dine around package. We can also recommend to book the half day desert tour with dune bashing. Krish from emirates tours is a perfect guide!
