Al Raha Beach Hotel
Ranked #27 of 127 Hotels in Abu Dhabi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 October 2017

This WAS our favourite hotel but things seem to be changing & not for the better.
The staff are fantastic in every department of the hotel, from front of house, to the pool area, we were recognised as returning guests by many & I felt really welcome. But the changes were evident & I gather the long term manager has now left & as not yet replaced, with presumably 'Danat' management look after things (& especially costs)
No welcome drinks in the foyer, no bed turn down in the evening. no evening entertainment in the bar or pool area (unless you want TV football). The Harpist is still there in the early evening, but in the centre of reception!!! Nothing really to engage guests & use the various entertainment facilities in the evening after dinner. Food choice is still good for an international hotel but I do expect the 'dress code' to be applied in the restaurant at dinner - & 'cut-offs' with tee shirts does not really reflect a 5 star rating. Must be getting old? so our next trip will be to one of the many competing hotels in the area, they are still popping up everywhere.

Room Tip: Gulf view rooms are a premium - go for the older part of the hotel,but beyond the pool the view is...

The hotel is ideally located and close to Yas Island. The lobby ambiance and décor is excellent and in the evenings there was a harpist playing in the centre of the lobby.

The family room is very spacious and cosy with a large bathroom. Our ground floor room was sea facing but the view was obscured by the trees. The pool area is well laid out and leads to the beach. The 2 pools are quite large and there is also a pool bar.

The Al Raha mall is located next door. We visited once in the evening and found it to be very quiet and lacking popular food outlets.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the new wing.

it was a good stay for us, however for the best stay I usually advice to choose the perfect climate, where I'm sure that our stay will be excellent if we stay on winter, absolutely this a common advice for everywhere in the UAE, but I've mentioned here because of the good weather will move the stay to an another limit.

The rooms are big coasy and comfortable. The hotel staff was also very helpful and warm. The think the hotel is good for business and family travel. The best is that hotel provide a free shuttle to the city every afternoon. And a complementary shoe shine service is also available do use it.
