Everything you need to relax
Close to all the major sights and the airport the Fairmont (especially if you go Gold) is exceptional. Great choice of restaurants, all the staff cannot do enough, amazing stay.

Amazing amazing amazing
When we first arrived we were blown away by the opulent lobby area. Sadly we had to wait quite a while to check into the hotel although after a while we were seen and our room was not ready (we were early) we were shown somewhere to freshen up and given a brief tour of the hotel on the way. We were then advised about a shuttle for free to yas island. When we did get to our room we were blown away, the bed huge, the room huge all tastefully decorated all very spacious. A lovely gentleman bought up our bags and showed us around the room. We went down for dinner and returned to find our room had been turned down, a weather report etc, little details like this is what makes me return to the fairmont time and time again, they did this every night, as well as their regular morning making up the room. You never saw them, like little amazing elves. The breakfast buffet was amazing. With an egg station. All staff there were super lovely and helpful. The beach area was clean, not too crowded with plenty of shade options if needed. The guys on the beach were fantastic and ready to assist with making the loungers, food and drink. The only times it fell down for me was 1. The wait to check in, there were staff around but it took longer than it should to acknowledge us 2. The food and drinks were on the pricey side (but then again it is a 5 star hotel, expected) 3. Pool was a little on the cooler side 4. Some guy coming to check the mini bar seperate to housekeeping everyday

Good stay lovely location next to creek
Good stay during ADIPEC which of course limited choice and results in all hotels over pricing. Nice meal in MPW Steak restaurant.
