  • Review by Judith of فندق شاطئ روتانا ابوظبي
    قبل 4 سنوات
    Where to start? Nawaraj who was our waiter, thank you for making us feel so welcome and being so attentive firstly. The atmosphere and live Dj made it feel immediately relaxing. The food range and quality was out of this world, so many choices, fish bar was delicious, the fish grill with all sorts of fish of your choice cooked to order was amazing, outside BBQ delicious, curries superb, Chinese food superb, desert section was huge but the icing on the cake for me was the cheese room....yes, cheese ROOM. I've never seen such a huge selection of delicious cheeses. I've been to a few brunches but this is the best one I've ever been to, we will be going back! Thank you for a great experience.

    On arrival (very late check in at 3pm) they could not find our reservation despite me emailing them and phoning to confirm. Check in process was very slow. 30 dirhams per person per day for wifi is daylight robbery! It wasn't like it was even per room which would have been bad enough but per person!!! The shower temperature was uncontrollable and the water was so hot you couldn't even stand under it! At the evening meal I asked if they served alcohol after a certain time as it was Ramadan a simple no would suffice but the restaurant manager kept coming over and talking about it, I counted 5 times he came over. It was embarrassing! Breakfast was cold, cold sausages, cold omlete, cold everything it was really unappetizing and inedible. Pool was not working either.

    Ordered the steak 'rare' and watched the 'chef' fan the coals on the bbq which landed on top of the steak. When the steak arrived it was so over cooked so I sent it back along with the chips and soggy vegetables. A new steak was ordered but rather than re doing the chips and vegetables the chips and veg were stone cold and the steak still well over done. I complained I couldn't eat the chips and veg as they were so cold so they took them away rather than letting the over done steak go cold I ate it on its own then the chips and veg arrived well after I had finished my steak. My husband had a pint of Guinness that was clearly not right, the manager tried it and agreed so it was taken away. When we left I asked for a discount as the meal was not cheap and the service was appalling only to be told 'we replaced the steak for you what more do you want?' Seriously, don't waste your money in this place. Here is a photo of the second steak cooked 'rare'

    Got completely ripped off during the red bull air race, they clearly stated 50dhs entry and 80 minimum for orders. They did not state this was PER PERSON. Really dishonest and the manager did nothing to help ease the situation. Ended up with an 700 dhs bill, which would of got us beach access to the private beach opposite. Ridiculous. Unhelpful slow service. Pizza was disgusting and had to return it. Won't be returning.

    Really nice warm welcome from the staff. Plenty of choices of different types of food including sea food, sushi, curries, meats, salads and delicious deserts. We sat outside and the view was stunning,so relaxing. Thank you for making my son a cake for his birthday. It made him feel so special. Will definitely go again soon!

    Where do you start? On arrival the check in was difficult, even though they had taken the money off our credit card they wanted re paying and said we would be refunded up to 15 days later. The decor is tired, carpets stained. The rooms were so poor for plug sockets we ended up boiling the kettle in the bathroom to make a drink!!! The view from the bedroom window is depressing. The wifi is so bad we had to turn it off! The nightclub downstairs was so noisy at 3am the music was so loud we could hear it clearly on the 4th floor. The doors are so thin you can hear your neighbours so loudly. It wasn't cheap to stay here and I really wouldn't recommend it.

    First of all it was incredibly hard to find with no signs to the restaurant, we had to ask several members of staff in the hotel who gave us vague directions such as 'go out and turn left'. We had a nice warm welcome from the staff but our places were quickly stripped of glasses and knives and forks we wouldn't be using feeling that pretty soon there would be nothing left on the table. The lighting was so dim the waiters had to use torches on pens to read what we were asking about, it needs to be better lit. The food arrived so quickly on the table we felt we were being hurried, it had the feeling of a fast food joint, we didn't have time to relax before the food arrived. The food however was delicious. I don't think it merited the prices we paid in all honesty.

    Booked an over night stay, first of all we were locked out of our room because the card key did not work (this happened at 11.30pm) they had to drill the door to get it open. I went down to complain at reception where in all fairness after asking they offered me free breakfast. The breakfast was poorly attended by staff, food was left on the floor when people had left the tables. I waited 10 minutes for someone to serve me at the omlete cooking area. Then yet again we were locked out of our room, workmen had to come up. The internet barely works here so we just used our data package, the Jacuzzi was sandy and the sunlounger mattresses were dirty. On returning to the room to shower we found we had no power in the room, by this stage we had given up complaining. The walls are so thin you could hear couples next door. When we left we told the staff of our problems at reception. They couldn't have cared less.

    I bought an amplifier for my guitar and the company used Polo Express as a delivery service. I ordered my item 12 days ago and was told it would be delivered within 2 days. Still nothing. They said they had called me, which they haven't the company has my correct phone number. I was told it would be delivered by 11am yesterday and yet again it did not arrive. Despite me waiting in for so many days and waiting for calls I still haven't got the item. Absolutely useless,

    We used F1 properties to rent our Villa, it was being renovated and the boss told us it would be finished to a high standard. This was not the case. Once they had taken the money as agents fees they did not do any of the snagging on our list and ignored emails, texts and any contact. The house is an embarrassment. Do not use this company!!!!

    I ordered a Nintendo 3ds as a Christmas present on line and received a confirmation of the order and a call from SpeedEx Courrier tlc it would be delivered the next afternoon. Waited in, no call or delivery so emailed Geekay Games so assured me it would be the next day.....nothing, rang SpeedEx to be told it would be the next day and I gave them my home number as well as confirming my mobile number. Four afternoons I waited in with calls and emails being sent, then they said it would be Saturday before 12pm and they claimed they had tried to deliver but it was rejected, I didn't even get a call so how could I reject it. Geekay Games then emailed me to ask if I had rejected it!!!!!!! Why would I be making daily calls and emails if I didn't want the item???? So we left for our flight for our Christmas holidays minus the present. The only thing I am grateful for is it was cash on delivery so I didn't lose money. Geekay Games is not the cheapest of shops but the only shop that stocked the new 3ds, I shan't be shopping there again.

    I ordered a games console for my son's Christmas present and was told by Geekay games it would be delivered the next day. The courier telephoned to say he would be there the next day in the afternoon......nothing, no call, no console. Contacted them the next day to be told it would be delivered that day as the courier was in the area, waited in........nothing, no call. Rang them just now and was explaining to an operator my problems and they just hung up on me. I've wasted three afternoons waiting in for the delivery. Beware, do not order anything if the courier is Speedex. You can take the 'speed' out of the title!!!!!!

    I was given a quote over the phone having told the owner what we had in our house, he gave me a quote on what I had told him. The removal men were two hours late and then got lost adding precious time to the move. The removal men waited til my husband had left the room to tell me this was a bigger job than they had expected and they wanted more money. I quoted the email I had saying that it was a flat rate with insurance. By 11pm they had not moved everything from our house as they were slow and we had to finish the rest of the move on our own over the next few days, They wanted to take all the boxes there and then or we would be charged for keeping them, I said fine empty every box in the house. The next day I had an email from the owner of the company asking me for more money so I sent him photos of ALL the damage done to our furniture, broken headboard, damaged pine bookcase, plastic snapped off exercise equiptment, lampshades with books piled on top. I felt really uncomfortable with them coming to me behind my husbands back asking for money. I asked for an insurance claim and have not heard from the owner since. Terrible experience.

    On turning up we were seated in a family room, we had tried the night before but they were fully booked. They had 2 people sitting on 6 seater tables, this happened with 4 tables so they actually lost seating for 12 people. We ordered and poured the water ourselves, it's the attention to detail which makes you feel special. The food came through with massive gaps between our families main courses and the food was luke warm when it arrived. My son who suffers with a peanut allergy was given my meal by mistake, luckily it didn't have peanuts it but it could have! All in all it was an average meal lacking such things as tooth picks, finger bowl which you would expect as standard in a restaurant like this. The attention to detail and wait between peoples main courses has made me think we won't go back again.

    The worst shawarma I have ever had, we only live over the road but when they arrived they were cold so had to be reheated in the microwave, not good with chicken. When we ate them they were so fatty that we had to go and get tissues to clean the dripping grease off our chins. They lacked flavour and considering they were meant to be spicy they were not. Really bad value for money, you can get 3 shawarmas for the price we paid for one in all other places. This is the first and last time we shall be using them

    Whilst visiting the gynaecologist there I found that they did not take insurance so we were liable to pay 20% of the fees charged. I was given procedures that turned out to be painful and unnecessary among other procedures which were invasive and costly. When I was told I needed another biopsy I asked for a copy of the test results which did not ask for this procedure only a test which I had previously done and was negative so I went and got a second opinion from another Dr who confirmed this was an unnecessary biopsy which confirmed my thoughts. Also I have a thyroid problem and the Dr there took my annual blood test to check the levels only to be told I needed to see a specialist they knew as they could not read the results and I would need a barium meal. I was naturally very concerned so went to see my local Dr who said my thyroid levels were within my limits and of no concern. I just feel like I was a cash cow.

    Atlantis concerts, going to take me a lot to go to another one I can tell you. After it taking over an hour to get from the start of The Palm to the parking due to the tunnels being reduced to two lanes and then being re directed to the West Crescent by the police I honestly didn't think we were going to see The Kings of Leon. Luckily we got there just in time and managed to get to a few rows back from the stage, then as the group came on in stifling heat fights broke out as people tried to surge to the front of the stage who were blocked by many angry people who had stood there for ages waiting for the act to come on. This isn`t the first time numerous fights have broken out there. After the concert had finished we went back to our car where three lines of traffic were trying to merge in to one lane taking us yet again a further half an hour to get out of the parking and hour to get off The Palm itself. I thought after NYE dreadful management they may have sorted these problems out, how wrong was I. I shan`t be going to any concert there again as it is such a stressful experience both journey wise and the fighting which was not handled by security making it an unpleasant and frightening concert which was meant to be fun.

    Booking this tour was quite difficult, no one would reply to my emails. Several phone calls later the booking was confirmed. The driver turned up half an hour later than the agreed time and we proceeded to to go to Hatta, first stopping at a carpet souq, of course the shop he took us to belonged to one of his friends. Then we went to the Heritage Village which was interesting to look round and see a glimpse of past life. We then went to Hatta Dam which was a good photo opportunity. Then on to the bit I was looking forward to the most, the Wadi, which lived up to my expectations. After 20 minutes we were told to get out as we had to go back to Dubai and I felt cheated by the amount of time we had there. The driver whilst driving operated his two mobile phones, topped up his mobile phone with a scratch card whilst driving, picked his ear with a pen and rolled tobacco to chew whist hands loosely on the steering wheel. Then having been hurried away from the Wadi as we had to get back we arrived back in Dubai half an hour earlier than the tour was meant to finish so effectively with him turning up late and us arriving back early we got an hour less than we paid for. (tour time 9.10am-2pm including 3 hours of driving)

    At the Scissor sisters concert we went right to the front of the stage, I asked security if I could rest my drinks the other side of the fencing and he said no but when some girl who barged her way to the front tried to knock my husbands camera out of his hand, constantly jabbing him in the ribs to get to the front and the guy next to her security did nothing. I have witnesses to this. When we wouldn't let her in bit my husband and left bite marks on his shoulder, he bit her 2 times. When we called security over they did nothing.
    Secondly I don't understand why the VIP section is at the back of the Forum, it makes no sense at all. If you pay more money you expect to get closer to the band you have paid for not further away.

    I absolutely love this mall in every aspect. From the easy parking to the shops, layout and clean airy decor. You can either park outside the mall on underground and get a lift up to the shops. The mall is spacious and well laid out so that no back tracking is required to see every store. The central lobby is light it contains and information desk, 2 storey fish tank and currently several market stalls. On the second floor there is also an area for displays and activites.
    The ground floor is predominately clothing with shops such as Splash, Matalan, New look, the middle floor has a mixture of general shops, childrens clothing and electronic shops including one of only two Sharaf DG in Abu Dhabi. The first floor also accommodates the newest Lulu which is very well laid out with electronics and general supermarket providing a one stop shop. The third floor is mainly a food hall which offers some famous named alternatives to most other malls such as Wendy's, London fish and chip shop, Hardees (which unless you go up into Abu Dhabi are so hard to find) and also has a huge Sparkies play area for the young kids. Unlike other new malls such as Dalma and the new one on Baniyas the majority of shops were occupied as soon as the mall opened., which was a refreshing change. The only draw back at the moment are the roadworks that surround the mall making it difficult for people who need to get back off the island. The mall is ideal for people who do not live or want to travel into the centre of Abu Dhabi. This has become our favourite mall since it has opened as it is methodically laid out, flawlessly clean and an absolute pleasure to spend time round.

    This shop is so enticing from the outside with a mixture of perfumes and watches in the window, it really draws your eye. I have bought from this shop several times now and for various reasons. The range of stock for watches it amazing, all so well laid out and lit to show the watches in their best light. Easy to see all of them and it is not cluttered. The staff are so attentive and helpful, I recently bought a watch for my son and they suggested some watches to me. I must have been in there for ages as I was offered a coffee, which was so welcomed! I thanked them for their patience with me. Once I had decided I was offered a range of wrapping paper and ribbon (I am so bad at wrapping presents) and it was all ready for the giving. I then turned my attention to perfume for me, the range of perfumes they stocked was stunning. I found some I liked and he was good enough to offer a special deal. With the cleanliness, friendliness and prices I shall be doing most of my Christmas shopping there for my family. I would recommend a visit, you won't be disappointed!

    Hi Five is a small shop in the Mazayed Mall in Mohammed Bin Zayed City. It sells a range of products from soft toys, babies toys, games, electronic gaming devices, it is has a lot of stuff in a small shop. They also stock seasonal decorations and have a great stock of National Day decorations at the moment. However there is a slight problem with how the shop is run, my son bought a Nintendo 3ds from there which was about 1050 dirhams and it developed a problem. We took the product back to the shop only to be told they would not honour the guarantee. ALL Nintendo products come with a 12 month guarantee which I showed the shop owner on my mobile phone. He would not do anything to help even though the item was less than 3 months into the warranty. Despite showing him the proof on line that it carries a 12 month warranty he was most unhelpful and now we are having to deal with Nintendo directly. Please be cautious when buying expensive items from there as if it goes wrong you will have absolutely no come back.

    The school is situated on the outskirts of Mussafah. It is a British curriculum which intakes children from kindergarten age to A level students. The staff and headmaster are incredibly friendly and helpful and willing to talk to you about your childs progress or any problems they may be having. The school itself offers and excellent range of subjects and sports. My son turned up 3 months into his A level courses which worried the school somewhat as they use a different examining board but they strived to get him up to speed with the topics with outside tuition and he is now studying law at Birmingham University. My other two children strive in the school too and there are many nationalities that attend which has taught them so much about other cultures which has been invaluable to their outlook and understanding in life.
    The school fees are one of the lowest in Abu Dhabi and they offer a bus service which collects from all over Abu Dhabi from the Corniche to the Khalifa Cities. All buses are fitted with cctv as is the school which is reassuring. Although the school is segregated I actually think this is a good idea as it makes the students focus on their studies. The other thing which is an asset to the school is that they have set up an on line system for parents to check what homework the children have been given and what results they have got in test (which your little darlings sometimes fail to tell you!!!!) I know when moving to the UAE finding a school is hard work but I cannot recommend The Cambridge High School highly enough, from student welfare to results it is faultless. Anyone wishing to reserve a place in the school can find the online submission and further information on the school on their website http://www.gemseducation.com/MENASA/camabudhabi0038/home.php?pageid=1&parentid=58
