Perfect. Lovely food, freshly prepared, plenty of choice. I had lots of different bits, but my favourite was crepes with ice cream. Yes! I had that for breakfast. Mango ice cream and passion fruit ice cream to be precise. We thought it would be busy because of the Grand Prix at the weekend, but it wasn't and we really enjoyed... More

Just finished a three day stay at this property. One of the best in the UAE. While rooms are a bit tired, they are still large and service is great. Restaurants had more food than I could eat and all amazing quality. Chefs in restaurants were so accommodating. Had two spa treatments where were amazing. Would highly recommend it to... More

We were at the Shangri-La for 6 days for the F1 grand prix at Yas Marina Circuit. The hotel is a tad dated but still very clean and welcoming. The staff are all excellent. All of them. Best we've experienced in the middle east. The food is of a very good standard throughout. The Pearls & Caviar restaurant really stands... More

We usually stay in the Royal Mirage in Dubai for a bit of winter sun. We wanted to try something new this time and chose the Shangri-la in Abu Dhabi. We fly with Etihad when travelling to the UAE so the hotel was very convenient, only 15 minutes from AUH. I would definitely recommend the hotel. It is cheaper than... More

All rooms in this hotel are canal facing. We were upgraded to a room with a wonderful pool and canal view. Room is well decorated. Overall service from check-in is 5 star. We had BKFST and it' very good quality catering to all tastes.

I was here2 years ago and had a wonderful stay. This time it seems the quality of service and details went down. The staff needs more training and communication skills. The house keeping staff is short, it's them a long time to get to your room. Amenities are not up to par.

Amazing service all over the place. The buffet is superior to anywhere else in UAE. Great Chinese and Lebanese restaurants too. A good choice to stay if you are visiting Abu Dhabi either for short stay or on business.

Once again the staff at the Shangri-La Hotel excelled themselves. The Pool bar staff were thoughtful, friendly and generous, the Beach staff attentive and the Horizon Club Lounge girls were so welcoming, nothing was too much for any of them. Another excellent stay.
