Rated 4 out of 5 by ABakry Family-friendly resort with cheerful staff & nice facilities
The resort has many, great, well-maintained facilities, with friendly, helpful staff. It would be fun for kids.
Although the sea view is exciting, but the beach itself is not well-maintained as it's full of stones and algae's.
Avoid booking during long public holidays, as somehow the facilities may get very crowded.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Barry54 October 2012 1 week stay
The hotel and the island are beautiful. The ambience is calm and elegant throughout the hotel. We had high expectations of the Butler service but unfortunately this was the disappointing aspect of our stay. I would not rate this any higher than nornal expectations of housekeeping or room service at a hotel of this quality - certainly did not live up to what was advertised and promised. We were disappointed that upon arrival our bathroom was "missing" a number of expected items e.g. shower cap, sewing kit, body lotion etc. This is where our first experience of the Butler service came in. After reminder calls and a 7 or 8 minute wait they arrived.
We found Olea an excellent facility not only for breakfast but for dinner too.
The beach is very good, if not a little too "rocky", but does need to have showers to remove sand at the entry/exit point from the footpath and most importantly TOILETS closer than they are now [nearest is at one of the restaurants about 100 mtrs away]!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MR12 Lunch
Lunch around the pool was an absolute mess. There was a restaurant which closed at around 3. Which then used to serve bar food but the stopped. You could order from a very extensive pool menu, but there was no where to eat it. Basically I stopped having lunch the majority of days. so at least i saved some money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by francky This hotel is so cosy
This hotel is a very nice place due to its location even if it is not really easy to find by car. All the materials are luxurious and beautiful. The buffet of breakfast is copious and delicious. Just take care of the too numerous dirty towels on transat at beach and at swimming pool. Good food at Turqoiz.

Took up offer of Brunch & Stay and would not hesitate to do so again. Food was excellent as was the accomodation and the best part was that we had until 4pm to check out which meant that we could have a VERY LONG leisurely breakfast. The staff very attentive but not overpowering. Extremely enjoyable stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kika2013 Nice hotel stay
This was our first stay at the hotel and were overall happy. The service was not great. The people who served us were lovely, but there were not enough of them in the hotel.
Additionally, our TV was broken in our room and no one ever came up to fix it. Pool and facilities were nice as well as restaurants

Rated 4 out of 5 by sina66 One Day Stay
Just few notes that would have made my stay and excellent one instead of Good one:
- The matress was not comfortable and too soft.
- While waiting for rooms to get ready, no compliments were offered (refreshments or lunch).
- We had to chase the lady to take up our names to queue for the check-in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Majmel Was Expecting More
The St. Regis Sadiyaat has two great assets, the service level of all their staff and the 55&5th restaurant.
The food across all other outlets were mediocre and overly price. I will not be going back this hotel again unless absolutely necessary.
Overall, the weekend was not worth the price we paid.

The staff at the St Regis really make the difference, there are numerous nice properties in the region but to get consistent customer focus that delighted us each and every day stands out. Whilst some small areas could be improved upon we felt that we were the prime focus during our stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alan47 An exceptional experience
Accommodation, facilities and food were all excellent and could not be faulted. What particularly impressed in comparison with other hotels were the staff whose commitment to customer care was beyond excellent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ARB2013 The service was not up to par
The facilities were lovely. The reception staff were just not on the ball. They could not impart correct information. As they are the first and last point of contact with the hotel that is all one remembers. The staff at Turquoiz were lovely and kudos to them for doing such a good job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cucu1965 Wonderful stay
We see a big improvement this time compared to our stay in 2012 - the quality of service is really approaching the fabulous St.Regis standard... in the wonderful Sadiyat Island location. Very nice resort, highly recommended. Great staff, particularly at check in/out desk.

I recently stayed at the St Regis Resort with my wife and 2 young children. I can not recommend this hotel highly enough as the service was second to none, and the staff go out of there way to make you feel welcome and make sure your needs are met.
A definite must visit again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andre What a great hotel
This hotel makes you feel a million miles away even though you are just 10 mins. away from Abu Dhabi city and about 20mins. from the airport. The golf courses at Saadiyat and the nearby Yas Links are top notch courses and I will return frequently. Definitely a SPG favorite for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Duabi74 Service level needs a boost
Great hotel and facilities rooms are beautiful and well designed. The service and housekeeping level needs to be looked at, other than that it was a pleasure to stay there and the kids loved the facilities, definitely will visit again, and hope to see an improvement in service.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay...it's a pity it was so short. We had a lovely room and our welcome was super. Rajaa our check in/our receptionist, our butler, door man...all were lovely and most welcoming. Thank you. Look forward to our next opportunity to come back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeckyB Amazing hotel - let down by poor restaurant staff.
I booked the brunch and stay package for my husbands birthday as my sister and brother in law were visiting from the UK. This hotel is now by far my favourite in Abu Dhabi. I can not speak highly enough of the check in and out staff, quality of food and drink at Olea, Turquoise and Manhatten Bar, the incredible room and bathroom and pool and beach facilities. Service in Turquoise and Manhatten bar was outstanding from start to finish. It does however sadden me that a hotel of this calibre excepts the incredibly poor service that was shown in Olea during Friday brunch particularly but also Saturday morning breakfast. It appeared obvious to me and my party that there was no system in place where by certain wait staff are assigned a table to attend to for the duration of the meal. Having asked three different people and waiting over half an hour for a pot of tea my sister had to get up and speak to someone who looked of higher authority. This needs to be addressed St Regis as it's letting your wonderful hotel down.

we have been to several 5 stars hotels in the emirates. this one is the most desirable one; from adults, to parents, to the excellent kids club, for every taste it is a perfect experience.
staff is fantastic at all levels. rooms are superb, bathroom is dream come true.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Christy50 Bliss!!!
I expected this hotel to be sensational and it certainly did not disappoint. I have never experienced such exemplary and extraordinary custmomer service anywhere else, other than from the hotel staff at the St. Regis. They are a credit to their employers. They go far and beyond to provide a unique and genuinely wonderful experience for all guests. I could not find fault in any way, shape or form, with this hotel. I am in awe of how they manage such a slick, fluid and professional operation and make it look so easy. My stay at the St. Regis was truly relaxing. It's the only holiday I've experienced where I didn't remember which day of the week it was. For me, this was an indicator of how chilled out and stress free I felt whilst staying here. The hotel itself, is luxury personified and totally breathtaking. I look forward to returning, in the near future, with my family. I just feel they're missing out if they don't get to experience what I did. Well done to all at the St. Regis. I will remember my stay forever......

The St Regis Sadiyaat is very closely located to the city of Abu Dhabi but yet it offers a great place for a getaway away from the crowds. It has all the facilities for an unforgetable stay such as restaurants, gym, spa even an 18 hole golf course adjacent to the hotel

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jezz Good weekend getaway
The rooms were spacious but not overly luxurious compared to other St Regis hotels I have stayed at. The guys at the beach are very attentive, friendly and eager to please. A good choice for a weekend stay. The beach is good and not too pebbly with very clear water.
