"Second time here. We love love love it!!!"
First time we stayed here was in 2012 and we loved it. We wanted a weeks holiday with guaranteed sun and the UAE can give you that. We didn't even look at other hotels in Abu Dhabi. We knew straight away we were going to choose the Traders. This holiday was a complete relaxer so we were either by the pool, on the private beach or walking and exploring the walkways between our hotel and the big brother hotel next door. The Shangri La. The whole complex is brilliant. You can even take a private Abra boat ride between the 2 hotels. The room yet again was great. A really nice size with a nice size bathroom which of course was spotless. The hotel staff here are some of the best we have experienced anywhere in the world. I have to give special mention to Pradeep who looks after the pool bar. If the management of the Traders AD read this, you need to know that Pradeep is just the best. He really knows how to look after his guests. I arrived a stranger at the pool bar and I left being good friends with him. He is a credit to the hotel. Food at the hotel was great. We ate at the pool bar and we ate at the main restaurant Afra. In the evenings we relaxed in a gazebo on the grass in front of the private beach being looked after very well by the waiters and waitress's. We had a great room rate for the week. Will we stay here again the next time we are in Abu Dhabi' You try stopping us. Fantastic hotel.
"Nice week end getaway"
we stayed in Traders hotel for a long week end. Nice location with a private beach and the access to Qaryat Al Beri souk. the staff is extremely nice, Nour and Abderrahim at the front desk and Abderrahim and Jawad for the service in breakfast. by the way, the breakfast is amazing! very calm surroudings and easy acess to the center of abu dhabi.
"Nice for family with little kids"
I stayed with my wife and two kids in a sweet for 2 nights. The sweet space was excellent with a spacious bathroom with jacuzzi in addition to the shower. The best advantage of the sweet is that it has sea view. Room fitting is very good. The beach is very nice although the sea water isn't. The swimming pool space is very small and depth is 1.2 meters. Only if your kids are under 12 they will like it. Service is very good and staff are always there to attend to your requests. We didn't enjoy the breakfast very much, we had to wait some time for a table to be free and the food display and quality wasn't good enough. The sweet is supposed to entertain club lounge services but actually visiting the lounge results mainly in disappointment as there is basically nothing, just a small jar of Oreos another one for biscuits and a small tray of cookies in addition to the usual fruit basket, also there are soft drink, water and coffee machine. My review about the lounge is negative as I have seen much better before. The location is very good if you have a car, you don't get to stuck in the middle of Abu Dhabi traffic, you can decide on the suitable time to drive into the city when it's not crowded as it is then close to many of Abu Dhabi attractions.
"4.5 star hotel, all round!"
Had a 3 night stay here in December. Had a quiet room at the front of the hotel. Though I guess a water view of the creek would be nice, i noticed very noisy jet skiers went on and on during the day so was thankful for the spacious quiet room! Great check in, standard wide choice at breakfast, with no queues. Hotel location near the Souk which had a good array of restaurants. Good room standards and all round excellent value and experience. This is the kid brother of the shangri la next door so you can use all their pools etc. Happy to recommend, and cost does include free wifi.
"Lovely setting for BBQ Friday dinner buffet"
We joined the dinner buffet on the lawn near the beach. The setting is lovely, with views across the water (shame about the lunatics on noisy jet skis). The food was not an extensive choice - but perfect for a filling meal. The seafood was delicious, and the beef brisket was divine - so tender and tasty. The weather at this time of the year is just perfect for an outdoor BBQ. We had bought coupons from a web site so the price was was reasonable. Service was fine.
