Stayed there in mid-February for business. Hotel is well located approximately 1 hour drive from Downtown Dubai, 45 minutes from Dubai Marina, 15 minutes from Yas Island and another 15 minutes from downtown Abu Dhabi. It sits on a man-made canal and decently sized sandy beach, just in front of the Grand Mosque. The spectacular views of the beautiful Mosque...

We have just returned from a February half term break. Unfortunately the weather was dreadful, cloudy every single day. However, this did not spoil our holiday. The hotel is immaculate. Typical of many Emirate hotels, it is full of marble floors, wonderful chandeliers and general grandeur. We were half board - The breakfasts were really good and had everything you...

We stayed for 2 nights for our honeymoon, and I am so glad we did! We wanted to explore Abu Dhabi before staying in Dubai. The Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi is everything you would expect from a Ritz Carlton property. Classy and elegant, all staff nice and professional. The hotel is located across from the Grand Mosque and offers shuttle...

Firstly the hotel is beautiful, its opposite the beautiful mosque,fabulous atmosphere and extremely attentive and helpful staff. The breakfast buffet is very simple and something you would find in a average 3-4 star hotel, the only thing which is kind of different is that you can have fresh baby coconut. However the bakery did not even have gluten free bread...

We had one night here on our way to Australia. It really is a wonderful hotel. The staff were so welcoming and charming. The room we were given was excellent, having views of both the pool and the canal. Breakfast, which was included in our stay, was amazing with so much choice. We loved the pool area and the gardens....

Ok if the places on the other side of the canal are unavailable. Steak house and Asian restaurant were excellent but the other restaurants and bar are mediocre at best. Everything is pricey and not worth the price for what you get in the end. The hotel pushes itself as high end but isn't so much. Little store for amenities,...
