I have traveled here from Hilton Dubai Jumeirah to spend three nights as I have not visited Abu Dhabi before for more than a day visit. I have chosen Hilton Abu Dhabi, Corniche over Hilton Grand Capital for a beach purely. I will review this hotel in Pros and Cons as HH Diamond member Pros - the first thing that needs mentioning is the staff, very professional reception staff made a really nice impression on me on arrival - I was given preferred room type of City Suite and was very grateful for it, the suite was very well appointed, with most comfortable bed. - hotel itself was very clean and well maintained with impressive lobby and public areas, good wifi signal - I was impressed with GYM facilities and adjacent pool area even though it's not located in hotel itself, but across the road on the corniche. GYM is very spacious and well equipped. - pool and beach area is really nice and I spent lots of time there, there is a pool for adults and family pool with children, which is a really good idea. - breakfast is plenty to choose from buffet. - executive lounge is on the 10th floor and quite nicely appointed, I thought that afternoon snacks were uninspiring whereas evening canapés were plentiful and could replace a meal. Nice selection of alcohol beverages although you have to ask for them, they served a nice prosecco and G&T was just spot on. Cons - main con for me was a beach or to be precise the sea, the sea bottom was very slimy and walking in the water was an awful experience. And sea its self was not clean. I understand this is not the hotel's fault but this can deter me from choosing this hotel in the future if I'm looking for a beach week end. As I do prefer sea to the pool. - Fact: travel from airport is about 20-30mins depending on traffic. Regular taxis are about 100Drh but you might end up queuing up. For travel in style you can choose Blacklane (web or App Store app) and you can have someone meet you with your name card on arrivals and escort you to elegant Mercedes parked up with cold water and have a very smooth ride for £30-35.

"Very nice stay."
Stayed for 6 nights and everything went smoothly. Check in and out were a no hassle experience thanks to the excellent reception staff. I sat across from reception one day for a while listening to some of requests and demands some people were asking and to be honest I don't know how the staff kept firstly a straight face and secondly their temper. Well done to all of them. Beach club is a major attraction to the hotel and offers a very chilled layed back experience for the guests. Room was more then adequate for our needs and was kept spotless by the young lads that took care on our floor. One thing that did puzzle me was the lack of attention to the gardens. At the side of the hotel is a large green area which it seems is left unattended with plants and shrubs overgrown or dead. It would be a great area if a little care and attention were given to it.
"2 night stay in spring break 2016"
my family had the Hilton membership card, which gives great discounts. so we had a great suite with accesses to the executive lounge. The room was perfectly clean with a great view of the courniche. They have a great beach club that is suitable for different kinds of visitors. I found a great place for families in a convenient spot in Abu Dhabi
"Classic Hotel and with must-see beach"
One of the first hotels in Abu Dhabi, a classic built on the Corniche in the 1970s. Some parts seem outdated now, like the rooms. You must visit the beach and bar across the street and relax. It is one of the Hilton's gems.
"Hiltonia beach club"
I have been coming here veer since I was born and now 18 years later, the Hilton and the beach club are still great and are one of the best beach clubs in Abu Dhabi, I have always known the staff to be very friendly and chatty, they aim to please and have always greeted me in the morning very pleasantly and tend to have conversations with me, some of the staff I have known for years there like Binod, a great bar tender and waiter with great customer service, also the new outlet manager and managers are very informative and will always stop by to talk to me, I will be coming back to Abu Dhabi to see our friends next year and the will be the go to place to meet. Always a great time at the Hilton
