Tried to check in after 5 which is late already for checking in time to be told our room isnt ready yet.. it took them another hour to get us to our room after that and when we got in we found it dirty with water in the bathroom floor and broken nails on the coach which was disgusting… since then the experience started getting worse as we were told we can’t use the hot water at certain hours of the day.. not our usual Fairmont experience and expectations.. we left feeling disappointed

Beautiful Views but not up to normal Fairmont service standard

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Anonymous Solo - Confirmed reviews ALL

Liked · Excellent Room sizes with beautiful views of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque if you book a sea room view. Good bathroom with bathtub. Peaceful and relaxing Ambience. Wonderful beach and garden area- particularly liked the piers. Lovely staff at checkin and in the Cafe- Rein was lovely. Disliked · I booked over peak time (the Eid break), the Eid buffet dinner was chaotic to say the least and there were not enough staff to deal with the guests, food quality was also poor compared to other Fairmont properties. Firdous (Restaurant Front of House Manager) also prioritised European guests, allowing them to sit in Marco Pierre White's restaurant with their buffet food. Black or Ethnic Minority guests (even if they most prob held a European or American passport) were made to wait until a table became available in the buffet restaurant, I did not expect to find such overt discrimination in a Fairmont property. Dinner booking process was also a nightmare, the restaurant had no record if you had pre-booked or not. Granted it was a busy period, but it is during peak times that you see the inner workings of a hotel and having stayed at other 5 star properties over peak periods, I was not impressed with the service or experience at Fairmont's Cielo restaurant. Housekeeping were slow, I requested a bathrobe but had to wait 24 hours (after calling again) before it was delivered Layout of the hotel is strange, restuarants are on the ground floor with access onto the beachfront but you have to walk through each restaurant to find the one you need. The hotel could really benefit from adding outdoor signage for the restaurants. Restaurants are not open for the full day (only set dinner times) so be prepared that the only other option for a quick on site snack is room service or the cafe. I was expecting a bigger Lobby area- it is on the smaller side, the area near the salons is also outdated. Rooms are also outdated in terms of lack of charging point, sofa was also torn. Lighting in room is poor, tv did not connect to phone properly and shower was cold and did not drain.

Thank you so much to entire Bab Al Bahar Team. The true Fairmont service you can experience only there. All the team is amazing, especially Anna and Jeffrey, they made our stay one of the most memorable in my life. They become a friends now, not just part of the amazing team. Also Director of Rooms Arnold is so professional, he personally met us and extended very warm welcome. Pool and beach experience with Broco was one of the best, this boy is doing his best from the heart. You can see how much he cares about each and everyone who is staying at the hotel. I felt so special during the stay. Thank you so much to all and for a great management who is a managing this team and makes them so engaged and motivated. I’ll miss you all!!! Olga

Not as great as usual

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Tiffany Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

I've stayed at the Fairmont many times and this did not meet the expectations of which I was accustomed. There was notable wear and tear of furniture and fixtures in the room. There was a piping issue on the floor I stayed on and the hall had a horrible stench. We were interrupted more than once for employees to check the water pressure in our room. The worst part is, this was the most I ever spent for a stay at the Fairmont so not only did it fall short of usual expectation but it was not at all worth the money.

Hotel nicely located and with good facilities. Checkin was smooth and all the staff was very helpful. The room was spacious but looked old and poorly maintained.

I stay at Fairmont during Eid vacation, the welcoming was great from the staff even the hotel was full. But during the second day breakfast the restaurant was full and the staff trying their best to serve the people. The hotel room was good but it need updates. The swimming pool was full due the visitor from outside of the hotel which I didn’t like it , they can limit the pool for the hotel residents at least during the Eid.

The Fairmont is our go to hotel for a staycation in Abu Dhabi and has been for a number of years now. The staff cannot do enough for you , always greet you with a smile and their attention to detail is remarkable. The rooms are clean, modern and include all amenities and the view of the grand mosque is breathtaking! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone as they have something to suit all.

DayTrip16144025636 TripAdvisor review

Your welcome email stated welcome drinks and we did not get it. We were given a room where we can hear construction work at 3 am in the morning. Sorry guys we came to relax. Drink vouchers only allowed us soda, nothing else. On a good note your Brunch was amazing, selection, quality and taste, all were a wow. Lunch was not provided for our 5 years old, we were told it’s not included, only knew this when we were in the hotel. View from room was spectacular.
