Staying in this hotel was a very pleasant experience, starting with the check-in and continuing throughout the whole stay.
All the public areas have a touch of luxury, they are nicely decorated and maintained. Check-in was very comfortable and fast. Reception staff is professional and very polite - special thanks to Elaine and to Reception Manager. Same for the Concierge team, who are always around to help with virtually anything.
I stayed in a really big suite in a corner, with beautiful views on two sides. The bed was excellent, with just the right firmness of the mattress and pillows. Amenities of the bathroom were very good and daily replenished, sometimes more than necessary. The living room was very big and nicely decorated, with a sofa and two armchairs, desk, big screen TV. The room service team did a very good job in maintaining everything clean.
I enjoyed the very cosy Cristal Bar, which is absolutely beautiful and relaxing.
Swimming pool, gym and sauna are very nice additions for this central hotel.
Location of the hotel is very convenient, both quiet and central.
All in all, this is real 5-star hotel, with decent room prices.
I stayed with my two children aged 12 and 10. We were looking for a city break away in a nice hotel with a pool near the beach and restaurants. This hotel didn’t disappoint...rooms were spacious, clean with large bathrooms..lots of water bottles left daily which was a nice touch. Breakfast was plentiful with a great selection, we were always left full often opting for the freshly made omelettes. The pool isn’t huge but it was big enough and it was quiet with just us in it most days..lots of sun beds too. The staff were what gave this hotel the edge for me...the concierge couldn’t do enough for us as a family in a new place..he went over and above to make all arrangements for us to visit various places around the city. The reception even printed our return boarding passes for us, they really went the extra mile for us. I would definitely recommend this hotel...just fantastic stay all round.
very nice service, room was nice and staff was cooperating. nice food and clean rooms.. the hotel is located near the beach and shopping centers and malls. the pool, gym and bar area are very nicely built.
I stayed at the Corniche Hotel on the last day of 2019, as I wanted to be watch the Abu Dhabi fireworks display. I had to wait 15 minutes for check-in as the receptionists were already busy with other guests. I was given a twin bedroom for lack of availability of a king bedroom, which was frustrating. The room was spacious with a nice view on Al Lulu Island. Bathroom was nice with a large bathtub. The pool was enjoyable with a view of the city. I did not try the breakfast as I had an early flight. The airport bus A2 has a stop just in front of the hotel, which is practical! Overall, I enjoyed my stay.
Having just returned from a weeknight in Abu Dhabi I can highly recommend The Corniche hotel. The hotel is in a great location to get to all the sights, it’s in the centre of the city. The rooms boast sea view or garden view. The hotel is five stars and I think that this is justified, as the service from the staff was outstanding. The hotel rooms were large ( we were in a club room) and equipped with tv, fridge, tea and coffee, plenty of bottled water and very large windows. The beds were comfortable and clean and there was an easy to use air conditioning system.
We went on a half board basis with the use of a club room lounge . The meals ( self service)had plenty of variety to suit all palates. The choice was so good it
was difficult to choose. The catering staff regularly checked dishes so that they could refill and replace where needed. When you had finished your meal the waiting on staff removed plates quickly.
I would recommend the use of the club lounge for just a few pounds you have the option of using it . The club lounge has comfy leather sofas and a view of the gardens, during the day you could have complimentary soft drinks, tea , coffee and biscuits. In the evening wine and beers were available and sandwiches also complimentary. Paying for the club lounge saved a lot of money, as we know Abu Dhabi can be expensive. Also the lady who worked in the club lounge called Ram was very helpful she was able to advise on where to visit and where the best places for shopping are. She had a lot of knowledge about the hotel and Abu Dhabi, and she had a great personality.
The Cristal bar has a daily happy hour on selected drinks and on Saturday it’s happy hour all day.
On level2 there is a gym, a restaurant and an outdoor pool. On the terrace there are comfortable sun loungers with umbrellas, there are tables and chairs and addition seating. A life guard was in attendance at all times.
There is also an option to have a massage treatment, my friend enjoyed it so much she went back the next day to have another one.
We had an early checkout and were presented with a take away breakfast to take to the airport as we left before 6.am, we really appreciated this gesture as we hadn’t expected it.
Although all the staff in the hotel were amazing Ram and Hassan were the ones who stood out.
I would return to the Corniche again and would highly recommend it.
