"Outstanding hotel & service"
We're staying at this hotel right now, it's our 4th visit here. We absolutely love it. The building design is incredible, with the metal "shell" turning different colours at night. All the fixtures & fittings are clearly very expensive, so you have a feeling of luxury everywhere in the hotel. Staff are amazingly friendly & efficient. Everyone smiles at you, and makes you feel so welcome, it's one of the key reasons we keep coming back here. We love aviation & sports cars, so with planes flying overhead, and F1 cars roaring round the racetrack, this is perfect for us! The top floor pool area is a wonderful place to relax, again with amazing service. Housekeeping is highly efficient. We can put the Do Not Disturb button on, then ring them when we go out, and within an hour the room is spotless. There's a coffee capsule machine in the room, and free bottles of water. The bathroom in our suite is HUGE! A big egg shell bath, and walk in wet room. There's everything we need in the room, and they are more than happy to bring anything more we need. It's just total luxury, with marvellous, friendly service. Sun all year round, it's just a perfect place to relax & unwind. WiFi is very good, so can keep in touch. Shuttle buses (free) take you to beach, etc. Taxis are cheap too. The hotel & whole area feel very safe, and crime-free. We come here slightly out of season, when there are amazing deals available if you shop around. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Ferrari World is on the doorstep, and also the amazing Yas Mall, which is gigantic!! We often go there for lunch, especially liking the Cheesecake Factory. Sadly, no sign of Penny as our waitress! ;-) (BBT)
"Race track not hotel"
Booked this hotel for a change when staying in Abu Dhabi for our third visit - big mistake ! Warning only book this hotel if you like the sound of racing cars , morning noon and night !!! From nine o clock in the morning till midnight the sound of roaring engines , backfiring exhausts was all we heard . Round the pool in the morning , in the bar at night , in the bedroom now at quarter to midnight , it's like being in the middle of a racetrack which is in fact what it is... It is a lovely hotel but the experience is completely ruined by this ridiculous race track smack bang in the middle of it !!!! Be warned , if you,re not a petrohead stay away !!!!!!
Still staying at Viceroy and it is amazing......, Staff are fabulous. Food excellent. Thought it would be hard to beat my Dubai review (see previous) but Yas island viceroy has already. Sitting on balcony with a view of racetrack, marina and Ferrari world rollercoaster . Free bus to Yas mall and Yas beach - both of which are great. Can't actually express how impressed I am. Got upgrade to main building room which was a bonus. Will be asking friends to come with us next time. Can be noisy with racing cars at times but just adds to the excitement........ It is wonderful.........
I stay in the Yas Viceroy every single year during the Formula 1 GP in Abu Dhabi since 2009. It can't get any better than this, the hotel is based right on top of the track, amazingly spacious and modern rooms, almost all hotel rooms have a great view of the track/ Marina or Sunset. amazingly friendly and professional staff that don't miss a beat, loads of food outlets and top chefs that deliver the most amazing flavours from around the world. make sure to visit the spa and pool on the rooftop. definitely a highly recommended place to stay for a unique experience.
"Fantastic weekend stay at the Viceroy"
I stayed at the Viceroy the weekend after the Grand Prix, so things were a little calmer! A fantastic hotel with the entry level rooms being huge, great service and plenty of choice for eating out, The hotel conference facilities are extremely versatile and are of a very high standard. Highly recommended for a stay in AD.
