food poisioning Jan 2011 !?

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 15, 2011

both my partner and I suffered from food poisiong after the Hilton New Years Eve dinner. Was it the oysters, the eggs or the fish? Either way, we spent 4 days on the toilet instead of relaxing on the beach ...

The nice but incompentent food manager tried to compensate the loss of 50% of our vacation be offering us a massage and a late check out. We declined as we considered this disrespectful and as such we are able to communicate our bad experience with the Hilton Abu Dhabi. We were returning guests for New Year 2010/2011, as we spent our vacation in the Hilton A.D. some years ago, already.
We will not return again. Never.
I even asked my assistant and my travel agangcy to book never again with Hilton.

Unique Quality: the chekc out was best - going home to safe food.

Good location & private beach

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 12, 2009

The Abu Dhabi Hilton is one of the older hotels in the area. Because of that, the rooms may not be the best quality compared to the other 4- and 5-star hotels in the area.

However, they are comfortable enough.
I recommend getting a room on the higher floors, if you want a view of the ocean and Marina Mall.
Or a room on the south side if the view is not important to you. The reason is because the lower floors on the north side are illuminated until midnight with bright floodlights and your curtains may not block all the light.

Unique Quality: The Hilton has a business center (but it is very overpriced... $9USD for internet 30 minutes!)
There are several good restaurants, like the Italian restaurant, "Bice".

There is also a bar call Hemmingway, a Jazz Club (dress code requires collared shirt), and a disco (males must show room key otherwise pay cover)

But the best thing about the Hilton is that it has a private beach. Simply walk out the front door, cross Corniche Road (either crosswalk or underpass) and show your room key for access.

If this beach is not what you want and you have time to explore, go north to the beaches of Jumeirah. There is a Hilton hotel here too. The room key will allow you access to the Hilton area so you can use the showers, bathrooms, etc.

Directions: Corniche Rd. Immediately across from the Emirates Palace Hotel and the entrance to Marina Mall.

Smart Room, Helpful Staff & Excellent Facilities

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 7, 2005

Although this had been my friend’s second choice when booking a place to stay for the weekend, we were very happy with it. They allowed all three of us to stay in one room, which we found smart comfortable and well looked after. Although there were some maintenance works being carried out during our stay (we were warned of this when booking) these were so well managed that they did not disrupt our stay in any way. All the staff were friendly, helpful and well organised and the hotel had a lovely calm atmosphere throughout. We especially liked the glass lift at the front of the hotel, from which there is a marvellous view across the hotel’s beach and over the sea.

Unique Quality: The most memorable aspect of the place was the health centre and swimming pool complex, which can be used by anyone staying at the hotel and is situated on the other side of the main road from the hotel, leading on to the hotel’s small private beach. We wandered onto the beach but the limited shade there made the poolside areas seem a much more attractive option, with their many parasols and several canopied cafes offering shade from the August sun. The pools were clean and well attended and were suitable for both proper swimming and simply cooling off or floating about. There was also a separate children’s pool and some artificial waterfalls, which you could sit beneath, feeling like you were having a massage.

We almost missed the health club, after all, who would think of using a sauna when it’s 50° outside! Fortunately my friend insisted we take a look and we were really delighted with the facilities there, which were extremely smart and luxurious, with rather better shower and changing facilities than were on offer at the main entrance to the swimming pool, a separate sauna and steam room for males and females and a huge luxurious bubbling spa pool, big enough even to swim across, with a dark blue painted ceiling set with tiny twinkling lights like stars, which was situated between the male and female areas for the use of both. Surprisingly, the place was almost entirely empty apart from us. There seems to be a well equipped gym here and various classes are held on a regular basis although I have to confess I didn’t investigate these nearly as thoroughly as the more relaxing parts of the building!

We tried the hotel’s lively restaurant, situated at the back by the gardens and weren’t disappointed with the meal we had there. We thought the noise from this might reach our rooms, which were not far above, but this was not the case.

Directions: On the Corniche Road

Do It for the Beach

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 12, 2005

My friend and I stayed a few days in the Hilton in early 2003. We arrived from Saudi Arabia just in time to catch the Thursday night Indian buffet at La Terrazza, which was delicious and refreshing.

Unique Quality: During our stay we made heavy use of the complimentary Hiltonia Beach Club which is accessible via a tunnel under the main Corniche road. The beach is spacious and clean and nearby are 3 pools and 2 bars. The indoor club has a huge Jacuzzi and sauna and steam rooms -- all quite relaxing.

At night we dropped in on Hemingway's, the on-site club. The house band was from South Africa and was more than competent -- they rocked. And one can sit just a few feet away watching as the bar faces the stage.

Directions: Near the western end of the Corniche road, at the junction with the road to Marina Mall.
