"Room selection is a key!"
My husband and I recently stayed at the Yas Viceroy hotel in Abu Dhabi. While the hotel was nice and the spa was excellent: Be VERY careful about room selection at this hotel. We were given a room overlooking the marina with a nice view. But at @11 PM, a nightclub from across the Marina began blaring music until 3:30 AM. Sleep was very difficult and the music was very loud. This did not make for a pleasant stay at the Das Viceroy.
We visited the Yas Viceroy for my nieces birthday in the Origins restaurant, everything was excellent. Fantastic food, great service and an amazing restaunt that overlooks the F1 track. They let us decorated the tables and bought the homemade cake to the table, would recommend visiting this restaurant if your in Abu Dhabi. Thank you too all the staff.
"Fabulous and Family Friendly!"
We stayed here for four nights with our children in April. This is such a great hotel. We had asked for interconnecting rooms because our children are quite little, and as we'd had a problem with this at the last hotel we stayed in, I called the Viceroy on the morning we were due to check in to confirm that they had allocated us interconnecting rooms. By the time I had finished explaining on the phone why I was calling, the man said to me "yes Ma'am, I have your reservation in front of me and I can see we have interconnecting rooms held for you." This was such a difference to the challenge we had had at the previous hotel! I then told him we were arriving very late as our flight was due to land just before midnight. So when we came to check in, the first thing the receptionist said was "ah yes, we've been expecting you." Really great service. The rooms were just amazing! We had balconies over looking the F1 track. And we were lucky enough that there was racing going on that weekend. The excitement for a four year old boy (and his mum!) of having a real race track with real racing cars just outside our hotel room was ridiculous! We loved everything about the hotel. The staff were so helpful; when, on our last morning, there were no rice cakes out, I asked if they had any as my son loves them, someone went off and found them for him. And when she discovered it was our last morning and we were flying home that night, she went and got some more and packaged them up for him to have on the plane. Generation V - the kids zone - is the best I've seen. We had two hours complimentary with our package, and our kids were so excited to go each day. Karen who was looking after them was so lovely. Everything there is spotless and there are so many different things for the children to do. This gave my husband and I two hours to sit upstairs at the grown up pool relaxing, watching the planes fly overhead and listening to the practice laps going on down below. It was so great to have the quiet pool just for the adults, and a separate family pool. The family pool (at the top of the main building) is a great space with incredible views, and a lovely cafe for lunch. The food at Origins restaurant, where we ate most dinners as we were on a half board package, was great. It had a really good variety of food which was great for us, as with fussy children a buffet can sometimes be challenging. However at Origins we could always find something that they would eat; it was great to have the pasta bar, and the ice cream bar for a treat afterwards! The quality of all the breads and pastries was particularly notable. We also tried the Italian restaurant which was lovely, and had we not had the kids with us I would have loved to try the other restaurants as they all looked amazing. Thank you for a lovely end to our holiday - the hotel is amazing, but the staff are what really made this just so great. Everyone was so nice to us and our children, and so helpful - from the guys who cleaned our rooms, to the staff in the restaurants, to the concierge, the doormen and the receptionists, and of course Karen in Generation V. We will definitely be back to the Yas Viceroy.
Commendable ambience pleasant staff everything that a holiday can look forward to.we had a pleasant stay in the island with so many attractions around.kids loved being around and never wanted to checkout. Must place to visit and spend weekend.
I stayed at Yas Viceroy on the evening of the F1 grand prix (first day of qualifiers) and for a very reasonable price. The hotel is outstanding and very luxurious, the views from the room are great no matter where your room was and the room is amazing.
