“Much better than expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2011

My wife and I stayed here only one night, visiting my son who worked nearby. It is quite a haul from Abu Dhabi airport (just over two hours of pretty boring drive). But the hotel is great. It is a beach front property and we enjoyed ordering our drinks/food on the beach using the call buttons supplied under the umbrellas! Unfortunately for us it was Islamic New Year, so bars were closed from 6pm, and alcohol not served for 24 hours - though available through room service. We ate in the Italian restaurant and can only say the the food and service were excellent.
Hotel arranged pick up from the airport, and drop off next day into Abu Dhabi. The whole trip was effortless. Highly recommended. We stayed in room 508, Bayview room.

Room Tip: Insist on sea view (not sure they have anything else!).

I had a great time on a business trip while staying at the Jebel Dhanna Resort. It is located directly on the beach with most rooms having a beautiful beach view, very relaxing environment. This is a great hotel for family and business as there are multiple conference/ballrooms for meetings while their is plenty of activities at the hotel for children. The hotel staff is very accommodating and went above and beyond to make me feel at home. They were extremely flexible when I had to change rooms due to my schedule and even gave me a great deal on a villa for a night. The food is terrific with an excellent buffet spread for breakfast, lunch and dinner with various types of foods, deserts and drinks. This is definitely one of the top hotels i've stayed at over the past 10 months. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a quiet getaway to kick back and relax in the Abu Dhabi area.

Room Tip: I would choose a seaside or seabreeze room with a balcony that over looks the beach, beautiful view.

The hotel is very good and thd staff is excellent.
The facilities are very good (impressive gym room, excellent kids play room). The hotel enjoys a very beautiful natural beach ( which is rare in the gulf as most of the beaches are artificial-reclaimed) and very safe fir the children (low water depth up to 300m).
The italian restaurant is excellent (and it has been awarded in ghe past), and quite surprising to find such a high quality restaurant in such location.
Major recommandation: go and visit the natural reserve on sir bani yas island, but book it 1 or 2 months before, as otherwise you will not be able to make it, as there are very limited tickets available.
We do thanks specially the staff of the hotel for having taken care of our 2 year old daughter, who has been quite ill during our stay: they have offer us a car and a driver for free in oder to reach the nearest hospital (despite being at 250 km from abu dhabi city, there is the private hospital of the oil terminal). As a traveler, fyi, everything has been offered to us, including medecines... The emirati hospitality.

It is a shame that such a good hotel is so close to tje oil terminal, that you can see from the beach and you can see the supertankers waiting for their turn. Meanwhile, the sea is very clean ( you can see fishes swimming along the beach). The outskirts of the hotel are not very glamourous, with labour camps.
For the golfers, there is a sand golf next to the hotel along a wild beach.

The resort is beautifully located and is one of the best options on this side of the country. The services are really good and the facilities are just right for a relaxing time with family and friends. The restaurants, room service, kids activities, gym, tennis and squash facilities, spa and massage facilities, spacious green gardens -- all add to having a great time.
The best part of the stay were the clean beach, the "right" size and warm swimming pools for kids and adults and clean rooms, apart from very friendly and helpful staff providing very good service.

The food at the resort is tasty and well presented.
However, considering that the place is far away from any major inhabited town, a better choice (read : variety) of food would have made the stay excellent. Also, the a-la-carte dishes and the lunch / dinner buffet are a bit high priced.

We personally had some issues adjusting to the pillows, but it was not due to any service issue or uncomfortable beds.

A "must visit" resort if you want to relax and -- you will enjoy your time there!!!!

Room Tip: A room with a balcony would be good, since the view of the sea from the rooms is great!!
