Good price when staying on Yas”
All / most of the Yas Island hotels are in the same vicinity (bar a couple which are in their own areas, isolated). As such, Yas Rotana is likely to be cheaper than some of the others for staying in the same location, which seems a bonus. Within the hotel, it is clean, comfortable and to a good enough standard. It is functional comfort as opposed to high-end luxury though, If I'm staying in Abu Dhabi for a brief stop-over Yas is generally a good choice, as not too far from the airport. There are ease of shuttle buses (free) and taxis to take you to nearby things (ie: beach and Mall) and the beach can be accessed for free with vouchers from this hotel, and the Mall will be sufficient for kids eating and entertainment, if just for a few nights..... Abu Dhabi is what it is and this hotel is generally in line / reasonable with price and choice expectations of staying in a city like Abu Dhabi.
Dear Jason, What a lovely, comprehensive review of our hotel! Thank you for taking the time to make such a wonderful recommendation. It's great to hear that your overall experience at Yas Island Rotana during your stay was exceptional and that you recommend our hotel as "great value and worth a visit". Our focus is always on providing value to the guest and I am glad you appreciate that. It has been our pleasure to host you and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future! Best regards, Craig General Manager Yas Island Rotana & Centro Yas Island, Abu Dhabi
Overnight stay near airport and shoping.”
One of the nicest and largest malls in Abu Dhabi is the Yas Island Mall. It is very close to this hotel and has bus service free to the mall. During Ramadan it might seem difficult because restaurants are not open until around 6:30 or just after sun down. I was presented with an additional bill for tax which was unexpected. Abu Dhabi recently approved a small tax which the Hotel has no control of. It was a very enjoyable stay. Hotel is 7 years old, but seems new. Tub/shower combination was nice with rain fall shower head.
Good location for Ferrari world and waterworld”
The stay at the hotel was amazing with friendly staff helping us to plan our day out to Ferrari world and water world yas island. Hotel is opposit the F1 circuit. The hotel has a few restaurants to choose from and a nice bar. Swimming pool was very nice. Overall a good experience which we will repeat again in the near future. 10 minutes fromairport, waterpark and Ferrari world. 15 minutes Abu Dhabi city centre and 40 minutes to Dubai. Good location and staff make you feel most welcome.
The stay was pleasing and the service was great.”
Everything was great during my stay at Yas Island Rotana, I would really choose to visit Yas Island Rotana Hotel again if I stop by Abu Dhabi.
Very good hotel at Yas Island”
For a 4* hotel, it certainly feels like a 5*. Rooms were great, and plenty of restaurants to choose from. The only complaint i had this time was - way too busy :-) This should have been a secret - then I could have the place to myself. So, if you are planning to do some sights in Yas Island - this is the perfect place to spend your night. But if most of your business is in Abu Dhabi, might be a bit far.
What you expect from Rotana”
Rotana hotels are quickly becoming our favourite hotel stay. You always getting what you expect: a clean well equipped room with excellent friendly service. This was our second visit to Rotana Yas Island and once again we left as satisfied guests. Our only complaint is that again there were not enough loungers available at the swimming pool. Hotels will have to find a solution to guests that 'reserve' deck chairs and loungers for themselves for the entire day - in most instances they leave the hotel for the day but leave towels and other personal belongings on the chairs making sure nobody else can enjoy the loungers! If you don't have your own car, it is expensive to get to the main attractions in Abu Dhabi as the only way into the city is by taxi.
we were very impressed with the hotel and staff. we came from al bustan in dubai which is part of the rotana chain. we had problems with checkin in with them so we were quite worried. we arrived earlier than expected and we got to check in at around 10 which was very lovely. we wanted to take a night out in abu dhabi city center and the staff at the customer service desk was very helpful with providing us with the addresses. We dined at blue grill and we had the porterhouse steak - it was a let down. it wasnt cooked properly or the waiter mixed up the meals as to how they were cooked. They were very fatty and if i didnt know better it could have been passed for a t-bone steak. It was not value for money. It is not worth more than 100aed.
For a long time I have got a dilemma is it better to take hotel at the center of Abu Dhabi or at Yas Island. Now I know I made a right choice. Great hotel with great stuff. Best regards to Mr. Scelza who after check-out asked us if we enjoyed staying in hotel, offered us a coffee and asked if he can help is in our further trip.
chilled on yad”
+ handy to all Yas Island attractions + Hotel has excellent shuttle bus arrangement + Y Bar excellent food and beverage + Blue Grill steakhouse in hotel excellent + Rangoli Indian Restaurant in hotel excellent - nothing unless you want to stay in Abu Dhabi centre.

This was the first time at Yas island Rotana hotel we had a great time, staff performance was very good, room size big and spacious and furniture of a high standard in addition it was close to Ferrari centre and the Fun park.
Good Hotel, Nice location ”
Had a good stay at Rotana Yas Island. Rooms are neat and are good size. Shuttle to yas mall and yas beach close to hotel and always on time. Breakfast buffet has a small selection and needs some improvement. This hotel does not have spray washer in the toilet, this is not normal in the middle east and the hotel should consider installing them. Staff are polite.
Hotel of choice”
We spent 3 nights in this hotel and we had no regret to choose yas rotana hotel. Best location, kind staffs and good facilities. This only thing that need improvement is food variety, mostly we see the similar foods during breakfast time. But overall this hotel is very recommended when visiting abu dhabi.
Yas Island Rotana was amazing - the facilities are excellent and the staff are very friendly. They recommended tourist attractions and allowed us a free late checkout as our next flight was at night. Definitely would go back there.
All round experience”
Thisnis a great place to stay while visiting the attractions in yas island. The hotel is located in prime area, is easlily connected to yas express bus route and taxis. The rooms are well maintained and spacious and has all the amenities you would expect. Only drawback is that it is very crowded and it is better to be early for breakfast/choose less popular eateries.The pool is nice and large and aagin very popular.
Great hotel if you are looking forward to be near Ferrari world and Warner Bros. Studios”
Spend our Christmas in Abu Dhabi for 3 nights. The location of this hotel is exception. Coming from Dubai, it will probably cost you UAE200 if taking the taxi (Mercedes Mini-van type) and travel time is around 1 hour. The hotel offers free shuttles to the surrounding areas as they are owned by the same corporation. If you are looking forward to the amusement parks, I would recommend this hotel.
Dear Kevin, Thank you for choosing to stay at Yas Island Rotana and for your awesome feedback. We are thrilled that you had such a fantastic time with us, having pleased with the overall facilities and the amazing attractions on Yas Island. We look forward to welcoming you back for another visit soon! Best regards, Craig General Manager Yas Island Rotana & Centro Yas Island, Abu Dhabi
All my expectations have met.”
Location, facilities, services, staff and the breakfast are excellent. Definitely I will stay again in this hotel in future travels and would highly recommend to travellers to book at Yas Rotana Hotel.
Fourth visit in as many months ideally situated”
For visting Saadiyat, Abu Dhabi or Yas golf courses this hotel is ideally located. 30 minutes and 60 AED from town centre, the area is self contained with a few hotels, variety of bars and restaurants
Excellent location, Excellent rooms”
I loved this hotel. Everything was perfect. Excellent location, excellent service, and excellent rooms with balconies. Moreover, the food was delicious. I highly recommend this hotel for couples, romance, and business. The best thing I liked in this hotel is the location. It is located in the gorgeous Yas Island and close to the airport.
The Rotana Hotel has a wonderful position and is great for a stopover when traveling to and from Australia. The Hotel is only about 10 to 15 mins from the Airport and has fantastic facilities plenty of options for food with a bar for snacks hamburger, fries if your not to hungry a buffet, Steak house and a excellent Indian restaurant. The staff are all very friendly and will help with suggestions it all depends on how many day's you stay but even if it's just a short stop on your way to another destination it gives you a reprieve and a rest before your next trip like an oasis in the desert.
A pretty good deal!”
A little bit far from Abu Dhabi downtown, but it is located in a nice place (the Yas island)!
