An exceptional experience from start to finish. Glorious hotel finished to the highest standard, the lobby area sets the tone for the standard you can expect throughout. Deluxe rooms are beautifully furnished and its probably one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Huge bathroom with great infinity rain shower. Robes were soft and sumptuous. The pool area is utterly fantastic - the biggest pool in AUH packs a real punch and was as warm as a bath - fabulous. Special mention to the incredible lifeguards at the pool area who had their work cut out for them with some spoilt, over-privleged children with questionable swimming skills and even more questionable manners. They are a credit to the hotel. Its worth going half board as food is expensive (5 star prices). Cocktails by the pool averaged about €14. All food and drink has a 10% service change and 6% local tax added to the advertised price. Selection in the buffet restaurant was great as were all of the staff working there. Dietary requirements were very well catered for (coeliac).
Overall I had the most exceptional stay here and have already booked to go back for some more winter sun in March. A special mention must go to the staff - everyone that I met or dealt with (particularly by the pool and in the restaurant) were friendly, welcoming and very helpful. Thank you Ritz Carlton!More
