Rated 1 out of 5 by Tara70 Inadequate service at an International hotel
I did not think it was helpful during our stay in August that it was not possible to get food for our children( 8 and 10 years) during daylight hours due to Ramdam. Whilst I can appreciate that Muslims may wish to adhere to this rule, not being part of that religion, I don't think it was appropriate for an international hotel not to have food available for international guests. We had checked out of our room as we were flying out later that night and therefore could not avail of room service to our room

From the minute you walk in the hotel, every staff person you meet greets you as if you are an old friend ... just more respectfully. I have stayed at this place for mure that 3 cumulative months over the ;last couple of years and have never once had a complaint about the facility, service or personnel. It has been over year since my last visit and the people there still recognize me. How do I know ... when was there last I specifically asked several of the staff to call me by my first name as I don't like to be called "Mr." Over a year later both the gentlemen in the lounge and the person from room service greeted my with " James ... welcome back, it is so nice to have you here again" and a handshake. For me, that makes it feel personal and when you stay in a hotel all the time its nice to feel like you are with friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by S123 spacious, central, great staff
Very central location to enjoy both beach and easy access to city.
Spacious restaurant area, lobby and room, especially liked the bathroom. Calming colours, fantastic bed and good quality linen.
I can really recommend room service/in room dining. Guest service and reception were always helpful.
Can't comment on pool/spa/fitness since I haven't tried. Next time, hopefully.
Good choice for families and business people alike. Very friendly staff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Spiritark Service levels are beyond 5-star
I was here on business for a few days and what really impressed me was the service levels of all staff members in this hotel. I was especially impressed that they remembered my birthday and sent up (1) a cake and (2) a birthday card hand signed by several members of the resort staff, and I really appreciated that. F&B staff are also very cordial. They proactively provide suggestions on food selection/amount (I seldom see this in F&Bs the Middle East).
One thing to note about the beach - you don't really get a view of the Arabian Gulf. It's blocked by a highway and a building under construction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RobuDhabi Had a great stay
We really enjoy staying at this hotel. The staff are graet, the guys at the pool bar are awesome and everyone seems to get that you are there for a fun time. They want to make your stay a great one. Our reservation was mixed up upon check in, but the front desk staff/manager resolved the issue and made us feel welcome.

Really recommend the breakfast buffet, don't know many hotel who have this extended choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Michelle1308 Nice vibe
The only downside to this hotel was the floor in the room and the bathroom ... both a little tired and looked untidy. Other than that, the bars and outdoor area were great, location central, and staff excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by N5toy Friendly and welcoming
This hotel always gives me a very warm welcome when I return. I value the fact that all the staff are so friendly and happy to assist me with any issues i may have especially Kirsty who always seems to be working.
The rooms are always very clean and comfortable with great bathrooms.
They do a great breakfast with a comorehensive selection and Buddikka who is on the eggs station does a great job and always remembers me and what I like.
Cloud nine bar is a nice place to go to relax and the girls Ruth and Mulu are fantastic. While the accomplished Yarina plays the panio to entertain us all.
Great pool area, great restaurants and great staff keep me coming back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Allan Excellent Staff
My five day stay was very pleasant. The gym facilities are extraordinarily nice, when compared to most hotel. There's a sauna, steam room, and jacuzzi, plus a full range of weight equipment, treatmills, etc. The pool was closed for most of my stay, for cleaning, but it looked as if it would be pleasant for casual swimming. (And casual drinking, since there is a pool side bar.)
The buffet breakfast was bountiful, with a remarkable range of choices. The sushi was a bit sub-standard, as was the western style breakfast meats, but the eggs were excellent, the congee tasty, the variety of cheeses and breads impressive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mark1966 Bargain Break
I booked this hotel last minute so got a good deal. As we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and my birthday we opted for a Club room. This had the benefit of having all day access to the Club lounge for a quick drink or snack when the kids got hungry. Lovely room.... and the bathroom.... well probably one of the best!! Would have been nice to have a birthday cake.... but I suppose we couldn't have everything!
Plenty for the kids to do. Tried teaching my 7 year old son table tennis but the wind was too strong so we gave up.
The kids loved the children's pools, especially the slide. Kept them entertained for most of the day!!
Had a wonderful meal at "Bravo" Spanish restaurant in the evening, and they had some drawing materials for the kids and a kids menu so they were entertained!!
As far as breakfast goes.... the biggest buffet breakfast I have ever seen.... and I have seen many as I travel a lot with my job. There was a selection for everyone.
My wife and 2 kids (4 and 7 years) both had a wonderful break. It was a shame the weather/wind was not on our side but we will be back when it gets a little warmer.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrWho Best One-stop Spot
The Sheraton Corniche in Abu Dhabi is a very comfortable hotel with easy access to the Abu Dhabi Corniche and a splendid variety of dining and nightclubs on premises. Almost equidistant from both the Abu Dhabi Mall and the Marina Mall, you can tour or shop at your preference. It is not really the most easily accessible hotel in Abu Dhabi, but getting to/from the Abu Dhabi airport is now superb due to the completed Sheikh Zayed Tunnel. If you only have a couple of days in town it is great because of the amenities and restaurants attached to the property. The food is excellent and the service is first class.

Rated 5 out of 5 by elodie37 Perfect!Wonderful!
Beautiful hotel, warm and welcoming, very helpful and friendly staff. Real professionals hostelry and service of high quality. Comfort, modernity, cleanliness, atmosphere and beautiful décor. Whatever the purpose of your trip, this hotel is worth a visit for the rest of the activities offered by the hotel (spa, squash, swimming-pool, sports), for its proximity to interesting places splus Abu Dhabi. I work in Abu Dhabi for 4 months and my husband joined me for one week, the booking team has been very responsive and very helpful for my réservatione and support of my husband at the airport. The breakfasts are fabulous. Everything is great here. Better than home. I sincerely recommend it to everyone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TeacherJJim Find another hotel
Stayed in Abu Dhabi first time for 10 days on business. This Sheraton is practically landlocked, meaning that is is hard to get to offices without detouring to cross major road or find another place to eat within walking distance. Food is OK, but certainly not worth the price. Rooms are small and dangerous (slippery bathroom/shower floor). They also seemed to be priced high, although I have not stayed at competition. I reserved a king bed on reservation, but got two twins. I will find a better hotel closer to business district next time, now that I've been there and know a little bit better what I'm doing.. This is a pretentious overpriced piece of junk. Don't let internet pictures fool you.

This hotel is a nice place to spend a day in a nice swiming pool mainly for kids , the beach is like a hut , no waves at all .
The breakfast is good at resturnat , but the club lounge is very poor , nothiing much to bite at happy hours , kids are not allowed to enter . so you better forget it if you a on a day off with family.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mary11 Room size and food quality.
I stayed in your hotel for 3 nights, I arrived on 03/02/2012 and I was told that the only available rooms are one with two beds and another one on the smoking floor. I chose the one with the two beds. When I was guided to my room, I was shocked by the size of the room. It was too small, actually the smallest room I have ever stayed-in in any hotel (and I stayed in many hotels!). I ordered food for lunch, but the quality of food was sorry to say but, horrible!
Finally, most of the people were nice in the hotel, but some were to serious to offer a smile.
My overall review is that the hotel is average and needs improvment.
Hopeing it will be better if I ever thought of staying again in a Sheraton.

Rated 4 out of 5 by YJ007 Comfortable Hotel, Efficient Staff - A Great Choice For Business Travelers
Having stayed at the various Starwood Hotels in Abu Dhabi, I have settled on the Sheraton as being the best managed Starwood property in Abu Dhabi.
The main reasons I like the hotel are:
- staff are efficient and responsive. Housekeeping, laundry etc arrive within 5 minutes of calling them or promised delivery time
- restaurant manager of Flavors restaurant very good at accomodating special requests around the buffet offering
- basic room, a bit small, but a good / business traveler friendly layout, and very functional
Look forward to staying here again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Razzou Well Managed & Maintained Property
Great staff; efficient and very helpful from Room Service to Reception to Housekeeping.
Nice job on the re-furbishment; the rooms are up-to-date (mostly) oozing good taste and functionality - just wished the mutiple electrical sockets style and TV connectivity options are by the desk as almost standard now even at lower star SPG properties. And I wish that my SPG Status was recognized with a room overlooking the beach / pool rather than the parking. The excellent breakfast buffet kind of compensated.
I recall a much nicer beach, which was a major attraction. Pitty that construction and road works reduced its size considerabley and tainted its look. Otherwise a well maintained hotel that does not reflect its true age. And obviously well managed.
