A Lonely Hotel But not Islander Jul 07, 2011
The hotel is just across the famous Formula One Themed Park in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. In fact if you got lucky and your room is placed on the pool side view, a picture of wide screen is what you get in the hotel. The place has a huge lobby that will lead you directly to the pool area and restaurants. On the ground floor there are three restaurants that serves different cuisine apart from the main themed for mixed inter-continental-Asian generic venue for the hotel's guest complimentary meals.

The Z Bar is just adjacent to the Indian Restaurant. Access to the main road from the restaurant and to the pool side is perfect. The elevator of the building is very huge make it big enough for a two cart on the lift. Rooms were very tide and very well composed. The health club is very perfect for a long stay on holidays. And the spa area are just accessible to and from the pool. The pool bar offers drinks all time long as the operations of 07AM TO 09PM. There are two separate pool for the kids and the adults.

The parking is the night mare. The valet is necessary. Though on tough busy times, we need to wait to get our car back for us. Otherwise we can get a bad walk through the parking in a swirling basement direction or behind the building which will take a full turn around route.

The guest reception officers during our check-in timings were not prompt on their services. They even offered their preferences on which room we would get when our booking has been confirmed a day before. We choose to advice them to get our rooms across on the same level but they failed.

On top season, this hotel must be expensive. We grab the promo deal anyway. If there is no Ferrari this hotel won't stay and the rest in the same place.

very nice hotel Jan 28, 2011
Had a day use in the hotel, one of the best 4star hotels in Abu Dhabi

The Service:

Very friendly, cheerful and knowledgeable staff

The Location:

Located in Yas Island, home to the Yas Marina Circuit a world-class motor-racing circuit

The hotel is in the vicinity of the F1 Race Track, the Links Golf Course and the Yas Southern Marina and the newly opened Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.

about 20 min drive to downtown Abu Dhabi and 45min drive to Dubai.

Neighboring Centro Hotel, Crowne Plaza, Radisson blu, Park inn, all walking distance. If you are into fine dining this would be an advantage to the location.

Dining & Spa:

3 restaurants and 2 bars

"Rangoli" (Indian): decoration was so so, food was OK, they serve Indian beer :)

"Blue Grill" (Steak house): nice decoration, friendly staff, food is also nice, but not for ppl with special taste. there are much better steak houses in Abu Dhabi.

"Choices" (international open buffet restaurant): liked their Friday brunch.

& a pool bar and the main bar called "Y bar" with a nice outdoor area, they offer good service :)

The Spa: have not tried it as it was fully booked, reasonable prices but they do not offer facial treatments.

Other notes:

The weather was cool at the pool area and that is because the hotel premises are situated in a way that would block the sun after, let’s say, 3o’clock, making it shady. There is a sunny area for sun worshipers and it is kinda cool so you do not have to torture yourself to get a tan. I can say that it is perfect for the hot summer of the UAE.

Balcony views of Yas Island Formula One track Aug 13, 2010
The Yas Island Rotana is a moderate drive from everything else in Abu Dhabi. Everything else besides Formula One and the Ferrari Museum that is.

Staying here will exceed most budgets during the F1 events. At all other times, it's an excellent choice and value. There are six restaurants in the hotel including service at the Y Bar.

Inquire about free internet which can easily cost more than the room at other hotels in the UAE. They often run specials to fill the rooms.

If you enjoy Rotana Hotels, you should sign up for the Rotana Exclusive card. The benefits are many and includes a 6pm checkout!
Very comfortable.
