I wish we booked another night! The kids love the pools especially the wave pool. The sea is a big bonus as personally i would prefer to just lounge and bask under the sun while looking at the ocean. Food is amazing as expected. Of course the entire place is what we came for but the staff is so accommodating. I wish all hotels will have this level of professionalism and customer service. Pradeep (Manager), Tati and Kristian are especially helpful.

Everything about Rixos Premium Saadiyat is just perfect. Rooms, pools, beach and food are amazing. People who work there are very kind and friendly. Life guards at the water park area are patient and understanding. As a group we enjoyed our stay to the maximum and our kids had a wonderful time. Special thanks to Mr.Christine, Mrs. Joan and Mrs. Tuba for being so helpful and kind to us. It's our third visit and for sure not the last one. We always leave and look forward for our next visit.

On 5th April 2021 I stayed here for one night with friends, after checking out and before departing for home, I noticed that I forgot my phone charger from the hotel room. I made enquiries with a staff member in the lobby who contacted security, they explained it was behind reception. I waited for a receptionist, unfortunately she could not find said item, she contacted a house maid via telephone who would check and ring her back, I was now waiting for sometime... Mr Mahmoud entered from behind reception, the receptionist I was dealing with informed him of the issue. He looked at me and said, 'sit down, I will deal.' in a very abrupt and aggressive tone. I responded by saying, there's really no need to be so dismissive. Mr Mahmoud muttered aggressively under his breath in his own language, I politely responded by informing him that I would not tolerate such poor customer service and I asked for his name and card. Mr Mahmoud replied loudly, 'I will not give you card, leave.' with a hand gesture signally me to leave the premises. At this moment, I was totally horrified, upset and disgusted that I was exposed to such aggressive and rude customer service having been a paying customer of this resort. Sadly I never got said charger.... Although a beautiful resort, additional training needs to be provided with excellent customer service. For a hotel to treat paying customers like this is a total disgrace, I have stayed in several 5 star resorts across the UAE and Europe and I have never experienced such appalling behaviour from staff. Having read other reviews, Mr Mahoud's name seems to appear time and time again. I think the manner in which he speaks to customers needs to be addressed by senior management immediately.
