It was our first time at the Ritz Carlton in Abu Dhabi we had previously stayed in the Shangri-La which is on the other side of the canal. So we had 8 nights here in an Exceutive Suite which is an amazing suite set facing the grand Canal the views night and day are not to be missed. The rooms are well maintained to a very high standard everything is spotlessly clean. This is a club level suite so we had full access to the club lounge on the 7th floor. The staff up there are excellent we tried breakfast and lunch Joseph was one of an amazing team who really went out of his way to look after us. There is always a range of fresh food on offer alcohol is served from 12.00 noon to 10.00pm providing a range of cool beers, wines, spirits and silt drinks. There is a good selection of restaurants available the Asian had the edge for us but they are all very nice. The pool is a great size snd the team are at hand if you need towels, cold drinks or your sun shade moving to keep you nice snd cool. Overall I would rate this hotel and the staff 5/5 because it does make a difference when the team are friendly, supportive and go out of there way to make you feel at home.

I have a love and hate kind of feeling attached to this hotel. First, this hotel is definitely very beautiful and I did love executive suite so much . Usually most of the staff there is also very cooperative and friendly. However some staff and even the manager at breakfast is so rude that we had to cancel our stay and book another hotel. I want to thank Sanjay though for always being so helpful and trying to make us very comfortable for our breakfast. We made a thousand complaints regarding the breakfast but didn’t receive a single call from the manager of restaurant at the time of our stay. Apart from this aspect there is nothing wrong with the hotel. We were so kindly treated by the front desk managers.Whenever I was at the reception waiting for my husband someone would bring balloons for my kids and even someone from management would come and ask me if I’m liking my stay. Steward Salman is so nice and always remembers all the guests by their names.
