My wife and I stayed here for our 1st anniversary. Despite arriving in the early hours of the morning, we were checked in and into our room in no time. We stayed in the club floors so had access to the club lounge during our stay, and it was absolutely worth it. The club lounge provides a cooked and continental breakfast in the morning, afternoon tea between 4-5pm and alcoholic drinks and hot snacks between 6-8pm, all included int he price. This makes it a great way to start and end your day. The staff in the lounge are the real stars in this hotel, always going out of there way to make sure you have a drink or food. Always remembering your name, and your usual breakfast order in the morning. In particular mention is Shafi (I think that is how you spell it) he was always there to help. The room was spacious, with a large bathroom, with a huge window between the bedroom and bathroom, so you could watch TV, don't worry you could close the blinds, between the bedroom and bathroom for privacy) The hotel had many large bars and restaurants, we used Stills, which did great evening food, nachos in particular. There is a nice sized pool and a good number of loungers to the rear of the property. There is free valet parking for guests, and just outside are taxis, the free Yas Shuttle Bus, which takes you all over the island, and also the bike hire stands.

"A perfect staycation treat in Abu Dhabi!"
We stayed in one of the rooms at the StayBridge Suites and we couldn’t be more thankful! This apartment-like suite is so homey and inviting. It’s a one bedroom suite featured a kitchen area equipped with modern facilities – a conventional oven, a two door fridge, electric stove top, a sink with a quirky designed faucet, complete with kitchen utensils. The kitchen is actually functional and can be used, some other hotel have the same facilities but not really works. The work desk can be used as a dining table too since it is strategically placed near the kitchen area. A lounge chair with two chairs and a coffee table was another option. The double bed was so comfortable that we had a good night sleep. Thanks also to the effective curtains blocking any light coming in. With the bathroom, it has a bathtub and a shelf made of wood where once can easily place the clothes without getting splash by the water. The housekeeping did a good job when they placed another set of toiletries in the bathtub. Walk-in closet was small but enough for us as we’re staying over a weekend only. Reception and Lobby Lounge Bright patterns, cool decors, snazzy carpeting and fancy chairs in a very spacious lobby are the noticeable features of the grand reception. It was so grand and attractive that anyone will find hard not to be impressed! It certainly sets a bright yet warm mood of every guest checking in. Having to arrive late in the evening after work, doing errands and the journey from Dubai, we felt really exhausted that night but the warm greetings from the front desk wiped it easily. Aside from the lobby, the hotel has a funky and colorful lounge with large seating space and colorful furniture. It guarantees that one won’t be out of a seat if ever one needs to wait for check-in. With light snacks and beverages like coffee and tea, it’s a perfect spot for those who are waiting for their business partners or just want to have a good read. It’s a breath of fresh air from the stuffy fixtures that one usually finds in most hotel chains. Buffet Breakfast at Jing Asia Restaurant We went to have our breakfast in the hotels’ all day dining restaurant – Jing Asia. Adorned with rattan chairs and quirky designed ceilings, filled with many seating and a widespread selection of international and Middle Eastern cuisine, it was how a breakfast setting should be. You can also choose to dine in inside or outside terrace where you can gaze at the beautiful view while dining. Live stations, gluten free corner, cold cuts and salad section, bread, soups, cheese, desserts corner, Indian dishes, Arabic cuisines and western favorites – there was so many to choose from that made us feel we’re actually having a brunch rather than a breakfast! My favorite would be the cold cuts of smoked salmon, smoked trout and peppered mackerel as it was very tasty. The husband of course opts for Western favorites such as baked beans, hash brown potatoes, sausages, bacons and pancakes. Other Restaurants There were a total of 6 dining options in Crowne Plaza that one would rather stay in the hotel and try different cuisines and dining experience. Apart from Jing Asia restaurant and the Views Lobby Lounge, they had a bar and restaurant Stills European Bar & Brasserie which has the longest bar I’ve seen in the UAE. The gastropub serves European food, international draught beer, an extensive whiskey range and more spirits. Every Thursday, Stills had a ladies night. Last weekend, the restaurant was celebrating St. Patrick’s Day so the place which is a usual full black color was decorated with green and guests wear green clothes too, how lovely! The hotel and resort’s pool bar named Sundowner is certainly a cool and favorite spot for those who spend more time sunbathing and swimming. They served light beverages and snacks during lunch and dinner from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm. But if you feel lazy to go to the pool, you can opt to order in their 24 hour in-room dining. Another restaurant located in the lower ground floor was the Barouk restaurant which serves Middle Eastern cuisines. Facilities • Outdoor Pool Area for Kids and Adults – From 7am to 9pm, one can simply enjoy the partly shaded temperature controlled swimming pool surrounded by many sun loungers. Your kids can also enjoy the dedicated pool area for them. • Kids Club – Or if they want to play you can leave them with trained staff at the hotel’s Kids Club where they can play inside or in the outside playground. • Fitness Center – The fitness center located in the lower ground floor is fully equipped with latest training gears, complete with sauna, steam rooms, a squash court. • Spa Treatments – For a full body relaxation, you can book one from their signature massages and treatments. • Wi-Fi Services – Though most luxury hotels have a free WIFI included in the room rate, it is worth to mention that the WIFI connection in this hotel and resorts works very fast anywhere in the hotel! • Meeting Rooms and Events – The Crowne Plaza has a total of 9 meeting rooms equipped with state-of-the art facilities and a large ballroom perfect for weddings or other events. • Tours and Activities – The property can also arranged several tours and activities according to your preference, just ask the helpful staff from the reception. Staff and Service From the swift check-in and great assistance from the front desk, alert opening of doors, quick attending of our needs from the housekeeping and of course the Chefs, restaurant managers, wait staff who quickly removed our plates and changed, everyone who we bumped in and smile or ask how’s our stay so far and the lovely marketing team of Crowne Plaza – thank you so much for making us feel very at home. We hope everyone to keep the same level of service and kindness as these should be the characteristics of a luxury hotel. The beautiful, high end facilities, complete amenities and delicious food are vital but the great service still prevails when it comes to judging a stay experience. Overall Experience As first time visitors of Crowne Plaza Yas Island, we can genuinely say that it sets our expectations with other branches as well – great service, kind staff, smartly designed and modern facilities and delectable offerings. The property is a perfect spot for those who are visiting the capital for the first time and wanted to explore the city or to have a pleasurable vacation retreat. Business travelers can find it appealing too because of its prime location and facilities designed for business professionals. It was indeed a short but sweet staycation treat that will surely remember and keep for the rest of our lives.
