    Superb 9.2 From 128 reviews

    Very good 8.0
    Christmas stay cation
    Loved the rooms very spacious and situated beautifully in the Venetian village. Great pool facilities and over all service. Disappointed with the food quality of the Christmas brunch - and would not recommend the Christmas brunch for this reason some items were dry others cold - lacked something special for Christmas day. The atmosphere was fun, nice to see Father Christmas on his camel. Overall the hotel experience was great.

    The refurbished rooms are beautiful. But the older rooms are terrible. Aircons not working, smelled weird. Service was so bad most places. Waited over an hour for bags to be brought down etc. Bad bad service. However great amenities, restaurants and security. Amazing for kids and families also.

    Amazing place!
    We loved every single thing about our stay here and didn’t want to leave! Everything was perfect. The room, the food, the common areas, the service. All perfection. We upgraded to club level room upon arrival and that was money well spent. If we’re ever in Abu Dhabi again, I would come back here in a heartbeat!
