    Very goodThe hotel is beautiful and the breakfast buffet is absolutely the best especially for a vegan, beautiful space and facilities. The hotel is so big it’s wonderful to walk around and gaze at the ceilings and walls that are richly decorated. Very professional and helpful staff for most. Since it was winter we didnt’t try the pools but they are temperature controlled and nice. Avoid mid-afternoon atound the lobby and le café as lots of tour groups come for high tea so it’s noisy and messy but hotel is very big. Only con is the only bar (that opens at 5pm) we were disappointed that itwas old looking and people could smoke. Also music was too loud to be 5pm (not the live music, we didn’t get to see that).

    Very goodCheck in and checkout was the worst - kept you standing there forever - and the check in person was rude and gave me grief as on there system I had booked a basic room, whereas on my agoda confirmation I had booked a higher category room. He did not give me my room that I had booked but the 'cheaper' one, saying the hotel was fully booked and they had no other rooms available! But besides that check in disaster and my initial disappointment at not getting my sea view room (they gave me a garden facing room - not very scenic at all), everything else was really good. Breakfast spread is the best I have ever had in any hotel. So all in all - good but not excellent.

    Amazing hotel worth the hype and the price!!”

    Service, size of the rooms, pools, food.

    We were simply blown away by this hotel. We saw it hyped in the movie "Sex and the City 2" and this is one of those cases where it really IS as nice as advertised. The rooms are huge, the service is great and there is so much to do around the hotel. Because the hotel is so big they conveniently have carts to take you all around the hotel. There are two pools, one for kids and the other for adults. There is also a nice beach next to the hotel. We wanted to do a lot of things in Abu Dhabhi but after staying in this hotel we rarely wanted to leave the premise! We will cherish these memories forever! Highly recommended!

    hotel owns beach front

    The price was thanks agoda very good and stay was perfect. It is not the Burj al Arab but the burj cost also4 times more. So if one wants to feel like 1001 and one night stay in Dubai at the Burj al Arab but when you want to have a good time, relaxed sphaere live music enjoy your stay the palace. The hotel is with lights even laser rays enhanced in the evening, so one enjoys the view from the hotel owned beach strolling along. Highly recommended.

I know that it may not be convenient to the airport, but it's the EMIRATES PALACE. When else our you going to stay in a palace? Splurge on this experience, you won't be disappointed!

    The hotel is known for its facilities. It's a rite of passage for visitors to at least stay there once. And although, it was more of a classic style, it doesn't diminish the fact that it is a great hotel with excellent service and facilities.

    Best hotel I've ever been to”

    Decide to make a little getaway for the weekend to Abu Dhabi from Dubai. Booked a simple room in the Palace. Arrived a little early than check in time and had to wait for 1,5 hours to get the room. Been a little upset about it, but once we entered these huge Apartments (I can call it by a less word) we were absolutely astonished. The hotel gave how the called it "a little surprise" and upgraded us to executive suite or something like this. The room was enormous in size and perfect in the interior. Dear Emirates Palace, Thank you so much for this magic weekend!

    The atmosphere was not friendly”

    Me and family were spending Christmas eve there as my two kids were visiting from the Philippines during their Christmas break. I cannot say anything bad about the facilities. They were spectacular to say the least. My two kids were visiting, they were 11 and 13 years old. I know that the 13 year old is considered an adult, and from the multiple bookings I've already made from this site, I usually pay for an extra bed for him. And for the other hotels I've been to, if the room I booked could not accommodate an extra bed, they solve the problem by upgrading our room for free especially if it was the first time we were staying there. I naturally understand as well that a free upgrade is entirely the hotel's prerogative and something that I can't demand, and didn't demand. But for a few awkward minutes, the receptionist and I were at a gridlock as to what to do about the situation, with him stressing that 3 adults were absolutely not allowed to stay in the room we booked. One staff helpfully suggested for us to get a connecting room or a suite maybe. She was probably trying to be helpful, but it was Christmas eve, and the room I booked 9 months in advance (we were really keen on spending Christmas there) cost me already more than 2000 dirhams a night. I was already wondering, what a great way to celebrate Christmas. Getting kicked out of a hotel. I was 9 months pregnant, it was Christmas eve. I was worried that they wouldn't let us stay, and at the same time not refund my money because I booked the non-refundable option. I was even telling the guy, "come on, it's christmas, we're just staying one night, isn't there anything you can do?" He finally, very reluctantly, agreed to set up an extra bed for us, for 700 dirhams extra which I willingly paid for, rather than forfeit my 2000+ dirham reservation. And that spoiled the experience for us. We felt unwelcome, and, maybe in my opinion, made to feel like we weren't rich enough to stay there. We just stayed the night, didn

    From beginning to end the state was simply amazing. I came here to celebrate my birthday and the staff took a really good care of us. I even got a birthday surprise cake in the room after we came back from dinner. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to celebrate a special occasion.

    Uniqueness, stunning setting,luxury

    Our thanks go to the Concierge who organised a driver to take us to see Camel Racing. Amazing to see camels saddled up with their robot jockeys, some trotting, some galloping and some lolloping around the 8km track with their owners driving beside the track in their 4 wheel drive vehicles, arms out the windows operating the radio controls for the robot jockeys. When nearing the finishing posts the owners would activate the whips connected to the robot jockeys and the camels would pick up speed. The robot jockeys and the camels wear the silks of their owners making it all very colourful
