Rated 5 out of 5 by WoutMul Living the good life!
We had a great stay in the hotel. The room was perfect, especially the bed. Also great that there is WIFI in the room available now. What we loved about the hotel was the outsight area. We had dinner in almost every restaurant which was perfect. The spa treatment we had was perfect aswell. The staff is so friendly and made us feel like home.The front office staff helped us with everything, special thanks for them all. We are planning to come back next year!

From the second we arrived to the second we left, we had the absolutely best experience at Le Meridien Hotel. The hotel is very central, the staff were exceptionally courteous and helpful, the rooms elegant and spacious, and last but not least, the buffet breakfast was just fantastic, an amazing sumptious spread to delight the palate. We would now only stay in Le Meridien when in Abu Dhabi, and we are looking forward to our next visit. Thank you so much.

Food service is amazing...ALL of the restaurants are well-staffed with professionals, and the food is exceptional! From the main dining facility to the ones out in the courtyard, ie Italian, French, Thai, etc, they are all excellent, including the SPG 20% discount!
The club level lounge is wonderful. With the afterwork snacks and later drinks/appetizers, the lounge is a wonderful amenity. Gerald is a gracious host and makes everyone feel welcome!

10:30AM HK knocked on our room, since we were sleeping and no one open the door -he opened and came inside and asked if we need service or laundry for pick up even i believe he knows that we are due out on that day. He did not even say sorry since he woke us up. As far as i knew, checking of due out room must be after 12noon (standard check out time). and before he must enter the room, he must check in your system if we re due out or stay in.

We arrived early morning and the staff were very considerate and made sure our rooms were available within the hour of arriving which was very much appreciated. The staff are very helpful and the hotel rooms are very comfortable.

We have just spent the festive season at the Le Meridien, It is a great place be for such an occasion, parties,Xmas decorations etc.
As usual this Hotel gives us all we want for a fantastic Holiday.
Plus many other headings.
It would be nice to mention all the staff by name but this would be impossible because they are all part of a fantastic team.
Well done Le Meridien Abu Dhabi.
We will be back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sammy786 Needs a complete make over
In September 2012 I made a booking via starwoods website. My request was for a king bed. When I checked in the clerk informed me that his system showed that I had booked 2 single beds, even after showing him my confirmation he said there was nothing he could do. Eventually when I started raising my voice he managed to find me a king room. I wouldn't book at this hotel again. This is my second stay and on both occasions I had problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Iva1973 Excelent in every aspect
Everything was perfect, I especialy appreciate the approach of the receptionist, who checked us in, because she proactively offered upgrade to Club Floor when I mentioned that I wanted to buy breakfasts for the whole stay. The price of upgrade was lower than what I would have paid for just breakfasts and included lots of benefits including free snacks and drinks at the Club lounge. Great services. And the breakfasts were devine!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DH2304 Great place for a stopover
Everything we looked for in a hotel was here.
Clean room, comfortable bed, tea and coffee making facilities and a beach. The big pool was closed for maintenance but that doesn't matter when the hotel has it's own private beach. Great buffet breakfast in the hotel restaurant and a good array of places to eat and drink within the grounds of the hotel. For shoppers the Abu Dhabi mall is practically next door.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Philipgs disappointed
I was booked into a room for disabled or handicapped persons, the bathroom was equipped correctly but the water was much too hot and could not be controlled thermostatically, also there was insufficient shelf space. In the room the should be more space and curtains should be easier to open.
The food in the hotel is always excellent and the assistance in the restaurants and bars very good. I was let down by the room this time.

After yet another amazing Holiday at this Hotel.
We can only reiterate what we have said in our previously published reviews.
Hotel gives us all we require for the perfect Holiday.
Hotel Associates go beyond their duties to make your visit just perfect it would be nice to mention them all by name. but with over 300 members that would be impossible.
All we can say is thanks Le Meridien we look forward to our next visit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wfarooq Amazing Weekend Retreat
Nothing better than a night's stay at Le Meredian AD. We go there at least once every year. We simply love the spa, the jaccuzi, the steam rooms and the rest of the facilities. You just want to spend all the time inside the water :). This time around we went for our anniversary and we were welcomed at the Hotel by Gerald who was extremely pleasant and courteous. It was a pleasant surprise for us to find out that we got an upgrade and a free cake + wine from the hotel, again thanks to Gerald who was kind enough. At night we enjoyed dinner at Talay restaurant where there was a live band performing which was a treat to the ears. The breakfast is simply amazing with fresh juices, fruits, eggs, variety of cheese and so much more, trust me you wont feel hungry until dinner :). Great value for money! Overall I loved my experience at the hotel and would highly recommend it to anyone who is visiting Abu Dhabi. It is a must!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nini1964 Small delux room and only partial seaview over ugly rooftop
Your staff throughout the hotel is very friendly and helpful. Nothing they could do about the view, the small deluxe room with only partial view of the beach but over an ugly rooftop or the huge electricity tower or the building activities. It has charme but could do with some updating. We like small hotels with character and great cuisine you have a phantasic chef and patissier in your hotel . Complimenti

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alison18 Short break in sushine
Moved to this hotel after working at ADNEC for a week; wanted beach and central - this hotel delivered. The facilities are great, though not always intuitive (ie have to go thorugh spa to get to the pool/beach). Plenty of eating/drinking option in the complex, but also close to Abu Dhabi Mall food court for cheaper options. There is not free/inclusive wifi in the rooms which is inconvenient. Staff very helpful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nana1971 Good Hotel but unfriendly staff
The reception staff were not as good as I expected, they didn't even recognize that I am an SPG Gold member. They didn't offer any upgrades although available, so I had to ask, and they offered a very uncomfortable room upgrade, so I had to go back again to the reception to discuss the room issue. Eventually they offered a good room but it took me some time to get the nice room. My kids couldn't access the beach & Pool area, the staff claimed that I should accompany my kids, although an adult maid was with them. On the beach i had to wait for 3 hours to get towels for me and my kids. I had to go and check many times, then I had to shout to get the towels. Because the pool & beach are not exclusive for hotel guest, the pool was so dirty and the beach was so crowded. So bad experience although I used to like the hotel. because of the construction, the hotel wasnt easy to reach.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ivan2012 Excellent service
One of the main reasons I have to come back to this hotel is the excellent service provided by all its employees. In particular I would like to mention Mr. Ibrahim from reception: he is professional, always fast in answering any request, and always with a smile on his face.
On the negative side, I think Wi-Fi service should be available in all the hotel, including the rooms, not just in some common areas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kschubert bad or good ...difficult
The hotel is an old lady but this does not mean its bad. The facilities are still one of the best and the hotel has kept its arabic touch. i would give them 5 stars if they would improve: front desk staff.. not friendly and no recognition of my status. The room was smelling bad the bath rooms are old but clean. Aircon is loud and i got a nice view and sound to the road and the central aircon unit :(. Royal club lounge is very good.. helpfull staff good choice of drinks. The beach and pools are the best ... and the Hamam and medic pool is great. in addition you can have a lot of different food here, irish bar, sports bar, buffet, lebanese, french, thai restaurant, nice illy cafe bar, pool bar etc.. there are only 2 lifts to the rooms and the staff is fequently using the lifts what makes them stop at every floor... they do have staff lifts but it seems they do prefer the guest lifts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JEF273 Average
overall its an alright hotel, yet very old, the only new thing in the room that can be recognised is the "LCD" tv,
I have stayed several time at this hotel, they have an interesting Turkish bath, yet a little outdated.
One thing I don't like at the hotel, is the Reception, Check in and check out process take forever, so if you are planning on catching a flight, you better leave half an hour earlier

Rated 3 out of 5 by JB27 You can get equally from what you paid
We had first impression with Le Meridien at our first time and could not believe it was the last impression. Check-in problem, my partner forgot passport but we gave the other ID which issued by Goverment here, still hotel staff could not retrieve the history from our last stay in October 2012. Detain our time for half an hour. We came back at 2.30 pm. to get room as we booked one double bed, but we got 2 attached single beds. Very disappointed.
Hotel location and facilities is very good. Hotel staff were sweet and polite but reception staff were not quick-witted to find solution.
Lack of keen decision making from our simple request which was not neither illegal nor imoral. Didn't know how to think out of box.
If every guests need to comply with every single requests from hotel upon check-in, we'd rather have self check-in with machine, not with hotel staff who could assist us nothing.

This hotel has always been a favourite of ours,large clean modern rooms all the facilities that you need for buisiness or leasure city/beach location but it's staff are superb.All are so friendly and helpful.If you can afford the extra cost I would recomend the Royal Club rooms and lounge on the 5th floor where you can relax and be looked after by Gerald (manager) and James see to all your needs.
