Recent guest reviews

The hotel is nice The staff are great Breakfast buffet superb Swimming pool great I'll recommend and sure come again Clean, cozy, with Italian restaurant , sushi bar, Lebanese restaurant and a steak house

Visited as a poolside guest today and took advantage of the 2 for 1 cocktails. Rather than have the same drink twice, I requested a different drink (of the same price) only to be told by the barman that this 'was not permitted'. As someone who's visited the Fairmont many times over the years and have always been impressed, today I left distinctly unimpressed and very disappointed. Customer service = 0 out of 10! Doubtful I'll be going back!

It was very nice weekend, I am highly recommend this hotel. The pools are large and varied and very suitable for children. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and spacious and the location of the hotel is excellent

Amazing hotel in my AUE trip at last week; hotel is beautiful, you can look the Grand Mosque from hotel private beach especially during sunset; Room is bigger enough and clean. Breakfast is good. All staffs I met in hotel are friendly and preffesional . One outstanding staff I must point out: the room attendent who clean our room, Mr. Roy Gonzaler, he is very nice and he made one apple swan and 2 towel swans as special gift to us, we are all surprised and happy.

The mini bar lock, The staff not friendly The room service food bad The bathroom not good clean noise on the floor and also u can hear the noise on the next room Towels not clean The staff on the reception rude

The staff were absolutely brilliant especially the cleaner, Roy Gonzaler. He made amazing elephants from towels and carved swans from apples. The room was kept beautiful and he always had a smile on his face. He made my day everyday.

Stayed at fairmont for our honeymoon (4th- 12th July) & hands down it is the most amazing hotel we've ever stayed in! From the beauty of the hotel itself to the friendly & always happy to help staff - everything was just perfect! Poolside was so perfect & relaxing, towels & drinks provided with a smile. The food as no less amazing & the breakfast buffet at CuiScene was just the highlight of the morning. Amazing views over the sea to the grand mosque & handy & easy to use amenities like the free wifi & the shuttle bus. Thank you fairmont for making our honeymoon so amazing & enjoyable with your top class service, we shall be returning back very soon🙂 Kiran & Zaen

This was our second trip to Abu Dhabi (we stayed at the Jumeirah Etihad Tower, last year). This hotel, though not aesthetically pleasing on the eye as some other hotels, it offered some of the best service and food we've had in Abu Dhabi. We were on level 7 (Gold level) which I would recommend as it offers some addtional services including afternoon tea and happy hour - we are tea total but stil enjoyed some lovely mocktails. The consistency of the level of service, food etc is incredible. But what really makes this place special are the staff. Some special thanks to the following people. Front Office: September Garcia Gold Lounge: Garry and Bima - who make the best mocktails Frankies: Cristal and Sunder Cuiscene: Geraldine and Honey Front of hotel: Lionel We would have no hesitation in recommending this great resort to other fellow travellers.

Extremely friendly staff. The Fairmont view rooms are spacious and different from other hotels. We were pleasantly surprised by the service, staff, pool, rooms and facilities. We were welcomed in by Simon, who was charming and well informed. Overall an exceptional stay, also received cute food setups in the room every morning from Roy Gonzales, who was lovely and cleaned our room to my fiancés OCD perfection with every paper and glass arranged in perfect symmetry. Thanks !

The gold experience was by far thee most amazing hotel experience I've had in the UAE. The people were so warm, friendly, and attentive, but not annoyingly attentive. I brought my parents here and they were just delighted with the entire stay. From start to end , they made us feel like royalty and family at the same time. The swim up bar and beach access was great even the guy in the gift shop added joy to our day. I received a great deal, which made this an even better win. It would have been worth every fil without it though.
