"OK for a week" Beach Rotana Hotel And Towers Tip by Mark_

Beach Rotana Hotel And Towers, Abu Dhabi: 2,189 reviews and 11 photos

Went to Beach Rotana for a quick week in June. We usually go to Dubai but for a change thought we would give Abu Dhabi a go.
Hotel was in good condition and the rooms had been refurbished. We stayed in the main hotel block, the rooms were OK with reasonable furniture and all have a sea view. The bathrooms are quite small with no natural light. Overall the room tended to also lack natural light as the balcony and patio doors are in the corner.
We were on B&B although many other guests had gone on a half board or full board option. The breakfast buffet is fairly good with a reasonable choice but we've had better.
We ate in most of the restaurants, Benihana, Trader Vics and a very good steak house. We also ate twice at the main buffet style evening however this was a bit samey and twice was enough.
This hotel is fine for a quick week, although it is also used a lot by business people. In comparison to many other 5 star hotels it does not quite reach the standard however it is a good price.
Overall service was acceptable

Unique Qualities: Excellent gym with fairly new equipment although there were not enough free weights.
Swimming pool was large and clean
The hotel is adjoined to the biggest shopping mall in the city which was very convenient
Private beach but very small and not ideally located.
