10th wedding anniversary at Al Raha Beach Hotel...”
We wanted to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary at a very nice place and luckily I stumbled upon a really good deal online for Al Raha Beach Hotel. I booked a superior room for a one night stay and informed about the purpose of visit. I got an email the same day from the hotel saying that they will be arranging a complimentary cake for us on the occasion. Sweet! Check in was a breeze and yet another surprise. We got a free upgrade to a sea view room. Room was pretty spacious with excellent amenities and wonderful bathroom facilities. Around 4pm we got the delicious chocolate cake delivered into the room with an awesome flower bouquet consisting of red roses. By the way I had not informed my wife about the cake arrangement and this definitely surprised her! We went to the pool in the evening. The pool is excellent and spacious. A kids pool is also adjacent where the kids can also enjoy the slides into the water. Although it was a bit crowded the size of the pool ensured everyone has their own space. Our breakfast the next day was at the Sevilla restaurant located at the ground floor. The buffet menu had excellent choices. They even had the Idly-sambar (traditional Kerala cuisine) available!. Check out also was very swift. And a special mention to all the staff at Al Raha Beach Hotel who were always smiling and greeting whenever they meet you at various places in the hotel. The hotel has a passage inside which connects to the adjacent Al Raha Mall. Thank you Al Raha Beach Hotel for making our special occasion even more special....
Weekend getaway and change of pace”
It was just a long weekend stay (two-nights) with my cousin and sister (both are visiting tourists Dubai-based). There were three of us but I had the option to purchase an extra bed and buffet breakfast for the Gulf View Room and it was all worth it. We did the Abu Dhabi tour on our own using GPS and Google map. The hotel is 12 minutes’ drive away from the Grand Mosque and 17 minutes’ drive away from Yas Mall. We did a circuit tour of Abu Dhabi starting from the Grand Mosque, then drove to Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, walked to the Emirates Palace and viewed it from the Observatory Deck at 300, then we drove through the coastal road going to Yas Mall and then finally back to Al Raha Beach Hotel. It was a relaxing tour and the hotel was a welcoming place to stay and rest for the night.
My stay at Al Raha was one of the most memorable stay not only because of its facilities, amenities and food, but above all to its staff who were very friendly and accommodating. Staff from the reception and down to beach (life guard) are all amazing. Special shoutout to Ms. Rei and Mr. Stephen for their extraordinary work done. They really know the real meaning of customer service and hospitality. Al Raha should keep people like them. Further, the swimming pool is clean, nice temp and safe. Kids enjoyed a lot. The beach is normal and no difference from other beaches in Abu Dhabi. But we enjoyed hammock though. What thrilled us a lot is their jacuzzi. This one should rate as 5 star or even more. It was fantastic. We really had a great time. Keep up the good work. We will come back for sure! 😉
It was perfect. We traveled as tourists and got a free upgrade to the presidential suite. Location is a AED20 cab ride to Yas, which apart from the mosque, is the only other place worth visiting as a tourist. They offer free shuttle service to the mosque, Abu Dhabi mall, Marina Mall and Ferrari World/Yas mall. Staff was very helpful. It has a beach front and a good sized indoor and outdoor pool. It is attached to Al Raha mall, which is not really interesting but convenient for grocery shopping. It's a AED20 can ride to the airport as well. We chose the hotel because of its price, proximity to Yas and the airport and it's beach front. Food is good as well. It was perfect for our needs and budget.
Our stay at Al Raha Beach Hotel - 29/08/19 to 01/09/19”
originally I booked through Agoda 2 nights stay at Al Raha Beach hotel. Once arrived to the hotel things went very smooth and I simply added my daughters (8 and 12 years old) to our superior room. After entering the room we asked for replacement by another room with bayview. The issue was managed within minutes. The same night we asked for additional room for our daughters which we booked through Agoda, since the rate was lower than the offer we got from the hotel. At the end we received an offer by the hotel to extend our stay by one mone night until 1st Steptember 2019 which we accepted and enjoyed three nights stay at the end. Rooms were very satistied equipped, very clean and the facilities (pool, gym, sauna and jacuzzi) are very good. Breakfast buffet is excellent and very important - the hotel is connected to Al Raha Mall where many shops and food court are located.
Utterly Brilliant... Except for reception”
We got a brilliant price from Agoda, and we chose a room with a sea/pool view. Overall, the hotel is fantastic. Rooms were large, pools were great, bars were great (but expensive!), service was excellent, staff were wonderful... but. The whole experience was ruined by the reservation/reception staff. They took 30 minutes to check us in, and tried to insist we had a lesser room (twin seperate beds instead of king). Then, they said they always put a welcome fruit platter in the room. There wasn't one. And on check out, they agreed a pre-arranged late check out of 3pm, and then proceeded to call the room 4x to ask us to vacate at 12pm! And the final insult, they put someone elses pool-bar bill on ours, and not a small amount, then took another 45 minutes to rectify. They also didn't have enough staff on reception at any time. But, other than those things, the Al Raha Beach Hotel is amazing. Best so far out of many we stayed in! Congratulations.
I travelled with my 13 yr son to visit AD, and we really enjoyed our stay at Al Raha Beach Hotel. The reception was warm and efficient, and the staff helpful. The room we were given was huge and overlooked the pool and canal. The bathroom was luxurious, and the wifi worked well...what else does a teenager need? It was not noisy though other than some construction noise across the canal. I am a fairly light sleeper and it did not affect me too much. My only concerns were the complete lack of power points to charge anything, I had to unplug a lamp to obtain power.....very strange in a 5*. Also it was the WorldCup of soccer, but the only place to watch it was a smoke filled pub which refused entry to my son anyhow. It smelt disgusting, so I was not willing to enter myself and we resorted to walking to the cafe in the shopping centre. This sounds like a complaint, but really we enjoyed the hotel itself. Taxis were readily available, and it took only 15-20mins to get to Yas Island
Amazing Weekend Break !!”
It was an amazing weekend break at Al Raha Beach Resort. I had been with Friends & Family and had a great time. The rooms were very spacious and the service was excellent. The features and activities of the hotel really kept us occupied and we hardly ventured outside the hotel. I would definitely suggest people to go to this hotel and have a good break and enjoy the holiday. The hotel has everything to offer for a nice holiday.
Great Place to Stay”
when i arrived at al raha beach hotel the staff surprised me by immediately upgraded my room to a jr. suite due to construction and noise where my original room was located. we thoroughly enjoyed the jr. suite and took advantage of the pool both days as well as the mall and the restaurants. it was a nice night away from the hustle and noice of the city.
A great weekend well spent with my loved ones ”
It’s our second visit here at al raha beach hotel, and we enjoyed every moment spending our time here. Only one cons, there’s an additional payment for the seaside view room now. Last 2016, it was included in the fees. Anyways, overall it’s still a great experience for us. Staff and crew are very friendly and accommodating.
Grateful place to be”
First of all, the place was so beautiful and everything was there such as, the mall or the beach. Its just only a walking distance from the hotel to the mall and also its super near to the airport. I thank the front desk to make everything easier to stay and special thank goes to ms. Faye and ms.Rie. those two were helped made my stay so special. Many thanks for them and they were assisting me a lot. I also thank the housekeeping department who arranging my settings which i requested while my staying there and it was so amazing and lot of effort through them to make the room to be super good. So once again i recommend to stay in al raha hotel which is so quite and enjoyable place. I would come there again.
Relaxing, friendly, exciting. Away from the city center. ”
I had a club room with the view on the bay and hotel villas: spacious room, nice design with a large bathroom and balcony. Club room is going with snacks and some alcohol surved at the club lounge- well enough to replace lunch and dinner for a lady. Mcgettigans pub and Al Raha mall are the next door - alcohol in the pub is much cheaper and the parties are every night - mainly foreigners from multinational companies. Stuff was very service oriented. Food was great at the breakfast buffet. Beach and the pool area are well equipped. Construction is ongoing on the opposite side of the bay which spoils a bit the impression but not too much. Good for the kids as well. Free shuttle bus is a good surplus to visit the main attractions. Room was well cleaned and supplied and very quite. SPA is good but too expensive. Thursday - Friday are very crowded as many locals are coming with families for the weekend. Special thanks to Mahendra who was cleaning the room.
Great WiFi. Great staff. Large rooms.Approx 15 mins from Abu Dhabi airport. Free shuttle to Abu Dhabi from the hotel. Taxi to Abu Dhabi City approx 50AED. Taxi to Yas Island approx 30AED. Off Licence in the Hotel. Attached to a shopping mall. Little else within walking distance in the area. You have to get taxis or drive to everything.McGettigans pub next door is a decent enough pub for food and drink. Hotel bar is very nice but expensive.The pool area is also very nice and at night they have music.One tip. We booked online with Agoda. Not a well known site in Europe. The rates on it were much cheaper than other sites. I dont work for Agoda. Enjoy.
A really, really nice hotel”
The family loved this hotel from the moment of entering the fabulous lobby. Room size was great and the location next to Al-Raha Mall allowed for other food options and a supermarket within walking distance. The only down-turn was that the pool facilities were closed during our stay due to cleaning. However, we could use 'next-door', which they took us to by buggy but we had to wait quite a while for a buggy to get back.
In general the stay at the Raha Hotel was very good. I actually recommended for anyone who is going for business to Abu Dhabi. The rooms are very spacious and confortable. The staff are very helpful and smiley which actually makes the whole stay a pleasant one.
Best bang for your buck and amazing facility ”
Lee the front desk person was very accommodating and friendly. We got upgraded also which was a pleasant surprise. We travelled across asia and this was only a one day stop but we had the best time in Abu Dhabi because of this hotel. Pool is heated. Breakfast is amazing. Staff are all friendly. The mall is connected to the hotel. The beach is right there. Ferrari world is near. A tour company is in the hotel. It's so convenient! I would definitely stay here again!
Best experience ever”
I have stayed in so many hotels but this experience was completely mind blowing. I would highly recommend everyone to try Al Raha Suite room. Superb quality service and a real president feeling. I would also highlight Ms. Fayhe at the reception was so kind and helpful throughout my journey. Thank you so much!!
A really awesome and stylish hotel ”
We had a really great time here. The hotel is not so far from the airport, so suited us. We didn't really plan to go into the main city area. This hotel was next door to Raha Mall, and this suited us for a couple of eating choices, and popping into the super-market. The hotel itself was really nice. Well built and with a touch of opulence. The outdoor swimming pool was good, as was the private beach. All in all a good stay, and good value for money, considering a special price obtained on Agoda. Like for like pricing for other choices, we were delighted with this hotel.
