7days in Abu Dhabi ”
I stopped in Abu Dhabi on my way back from Sydney to the UK as I was travelling with Etihad airways.I mainly wanted to relax by a pool,lap up the sunshine and enjoy good food.I chose the Khalidiya hotel because it had three swimming pools,one large one for adults and two smaller ones for children,also a small beach area.I found the hotel had wonderful facilities,including tennis courts,squash,courts,jacuzzi,sauna and massage.The breakfast was included in my booking and it was a buffet so there was a huge range of foods to entice you.Service was excellent apart from the waiter having to be reminded that I would like another cup of tea.They were very busy so I think that can be excused.The Hotel was close to most places of interest and shopping malls.I preferred to take a taxi as they were cheap rather than the hotel shuttle bus,as I like to do things in my own time.I thoroughly recommend this Hotel to anyone,whether a single,couple or family.It was a pleasure to be there.
Such a wonderful stay!!It was a quick check in, free upgrade and very polite concierge and reception.Nice and clean rooms, nice view, big pool and nice beach as well, nice ambiance and a good breakfast!!Thumbs up Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana. We will surely come back with our family. P.S thanks for the cake and greetings for me and my husband

Great value great hotel”
Great value hotel, stayed here for 1 week, everything from start of check in was great, breakfast was good also with a good variety of foods available. The room i stayed in was 721, the size of the room was quite vast compared to other rooms i have stayed in this part of the world, the cleaner was amazing & a great help, always cleaned our room perfectly & went out of his way to hang our wet clothes up, his name was Talat, lovely person. Pool area was great. Lots of sunbeds & good nice pools, beach area a bit small but very good also, gym was great with lots of equipmemt & free fruits & drinks available, would definately stay here, shocking to see how cheap it is compared to a lot of other 5 star hotels. Only negative there are no close supermarkets or mini markets, but thats the same fir most of abu dhabi, have to go to malls to go out to eat, lovely holiday!
Great Stay at Khalidiyah Palace Hotel”
We definitely got the value for the money we have spent booking this hotel. Our room had the best window view one can get. The staff were awesome and very helpful 24/7. The amenities are A-1. Food was pricey but you can easily get access to every cuisine downtown, 15 minutes away so this was not a big deal. Free basement parking and strong wi-fi connection were also a big plus. ‘Will definitely book this unit again if we drop by in Abu Dhabi in the near future.

nice beach close to EMIRATES PALACE”
AFTER A VERY GOOD STAY AT INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL IN THE SAME AREA,WE TRIED Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana, and we had a very good surprise ! we didnt expect so much, the hotel, the staff, the view from the room, all was wonderful, i recommend that place.
khalidiyah palace rayhaan by rotana is the best hotel in abu dhabi i like the vews it is near emirats palace end lovely staff
fantastic stop ever ”
I stayed overnight at the khalidiya palace with my wife and a 4year old.This is a great hotel in a great location .the staff were courteous.I would like to mention some who I remember. Mariam greeted us outside the hotel, ushered us in the hotel and offered complementary Arabic coffee and dates.Beverley at the reception was helpful and checked us in at 10 am with complementary internet WiFi access.the room was sea facing .the view could have been better as most of my window was covered by pillars . We had food in kumoon restaurant .the food was fabulous.I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to spend some relaxing time .
Lovely hotel with great pool area”
this is a good hotel if you are staying for a few days in abu dhabi. the rooms are large and well equipped and the pool area is large, with plenty of loungers. the beach area is small but a bonus considering few hotels have their own beach in abu dhabi. a drawback is that food is generally expensive (but then it is a five star hotel), however the lunch i had by the pool was lovely and good value for what i paid. internet is very expensive if you want to connect your own laptop, iphone etc, but i found out that you can get free internet (basic browsing and email checking) through the tv if you request a wireless keyboard from housekeeping. worth noting if you only need to surf the net and quickly check emails rather than actually downloading things. request a room with a pool view if possible - the others look out over a building site, which whilst not noisy, is not the best view!
Had a 2-nights stay at the Khalidiya Palace with my wife and 2 young children in a Classic King Room.with Balcony with an amazing sea view. Have to say it was one of the best vacations i've had. Had to wait around 30 minutes for check-in as the room was not ready, but the staff offered us complementary drinks as we waited Rooms are Spacious & Clean, with comfortable pillows & bed One of the largest pools, well-maintained and clean. It was a bit crowded but that's understandable during public holidays. Beach is man-made but it is nice Staff always helpful and smiling WIFI is free for the guests but it gets slow during peak-hours.

Very good hotel ”
We arrived during Eid holiday, pool is nice and beach as well, what I like in this hotel, spacious room, wifi is very fast anywhere and nice lobby. View of the beach and pool is very nice most especially if you stayed in the upper floor and the view of your room is beach side. Location is near Emirates Palace but it would be very nice if it is winter so you can roam around outside, weather on June in Abu Dhabi is too hot that you will not enjoy outside.
Dear Agoda Member, Thank you for sharing your review following your recent stay with us. We are glad to know that we were able to provide you a wonderful Eid experience.

Yours sincerely, Eleni Tsolakou General Manager
We loved our stay at The Khalidiya as a couple. The only negative for us was having to pay for in room wifi or use the free wifi in the foyer without privacy. Spa treatments were superb and well priced. We loved the fact there was pool and beach access. Our meal in both the foyer cafe and the Arabic restaurant were outstanding. Service from staff was just the right level, not intrusive as we have experienced in some hotel and restaurant experiences.
Brilliant Staff ”
The staff are a credit to the hotel, efficient, polite and helpful- always ready with a smile and pleasant response! The pool area and beach is lovely, the hotel decor is tasteful and the rooms are comfortable. The hotel is spotlessly clean and room service is excellent. The location is great too, easy to find because of proximity to Emirates Palace on the Corniche. The only down side is that there is no free internet.
Good for 1-2 nights Abu Dhabi visit”
almost everything was good, pool, buffet, rooms and close to Marina mall, beach is very small and not much things to do in the hotel but it's perfect for an Abu Dhabi weekend stay

Nice hotel with great facilities and beach let down a little by acoustics and attention to detail”
I previously lived in the apartments that form part of this complex and it was really nice to be back. The hotel has great facilities with a nice private beach, good gym and pleasant ambiance. Location is great for a walk along the corniche. The location is quiet and relaxed. The only issue is the atrium design which means that the noise from breakfast penetrates the rooms on the lower floors. I specifically requested an upper floor room non-smoking room, but was given the opposite. Disappointing that the staff hadn't read the comments. Make sure you request an upper floor. Even from the 5th floor, the views are amazing. If you want to party, check out Al Maya beach party. Boats leave from 11am on Fridays at the port just along the road from the hotel. Great fun.
Dear Agoda Member, Thank you for making time to share with us your feedback. We are glad that you were satisfied with your stay with us, and you liked our recreation facilities, ambiance and location. On the other hand, we would like to ask for your understanding regarding the noise disturbance you encountered and our inability to meet your room preference during your stay due to the limited availability of such room type. Nevertheless, we have updated your profile in the system to ensure that your preference is taken care of during your next visit. Once again, thank you for your feedback and we hope to get the opportunity to welcome you back to Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana, assuring you of our personalized service and best attention at all times.

Great place in Abu Dhabi”
Perfect location, friendly and comfortable hotel with all the facilities you can expect from a 5 stars at a fair price. Delicious breakfast, beautiful pool area, sophisticated interior decoration, helpful staff and super good gym facility. Only one thing to bear in mind, seems like a major construction project is about to start shortly on the pool side so would recommend room on the garden side which is by the way very pleasant now that construction of presidential palace is completed. Good value for money.
Great 5 night break ”
The hotel looks amazing, beautiful pool and beach. We spent hours in the pool as the water was warm, just perfect. The room was spacious and clean with views to the palace. Breakfast plentiful and delicious with good variety. We ordered room service a few times for lunch and it was very good. We also had dinner at the Kammoon restaurant and it was good, quiet as we sat in the non smoking area. There isn't much around the hotel but there's a mall a few minutes drive away and they have a nice food court. Overall the hotel is excellent, the staff are super friendly. I would definitely reccomend and go back if I could.

We were there for three nights. Everything was perfect. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the location was great. We had a balcony room looking out to the palace. It was magical.
