Amazing, can't fault this place”

This was my first visit to Abu Dhabi and I was a little nervous as I was travelling alone. However I felt at complete ease as soon as I arrived. Abu Dhabi is a really safe place for female lone travellers, I would highly recommend to anyone considering travelling alone. staff at the hotel were very professional and I was able to check in early and given a quiet beach view room, perfect! The hotel is modern and immaculately clean, my room was really spacious and was cleaned on a daily basis and anything I asked for was provided without difficulty. I asked for a prayer mat and Quran and this was dropped off for me straight away...amazing! I loved breakfast time, the restaurant was modern and there was a nice variety of fresh food. The set up of the restaurant allows for a peaceful and private breakfast time despite other diners being present. The waiters and restaurant staff were amazing and everything was catered for, no waiting around to get tea and coffee which tends to happen in a lot of restaurants. Good gym facilities and I loved the fact that there was a separate Sauna and Steam room for men and women, I used them regularly! unfortunately the steam room stopped working part way through my weeks stay. The staff were very helpful and called the engineers but unfortunately it was fixed before I left. The staff at the hotel were really helpful and gave lots of advice about places to visit and travel options. I also booked my desert safari through the hotel which made the whole experience feel a lot more safer for me. The location is good and just a short taxi ride from a lot of the main places to visit. Taxi's have a meter and are really safe. All in all an amazing hotel with professional staff!

First timer”

I've been to to several hotels in Abu Dhabi, however I was very impressed with the Southerb Sun. When I entered the hotel it had the most awesome smell. The welcome staff was great. I was served with something cool to drink. This has never happened to me at any other hotel in the city. Impressive! I had been complaining that hotels all look and feel the same. However the Southern Sun completely changed my mind. The ambiance was great! The interior decorations and fixtures were so me! The room was spacious And had some unique features. I'm so happy with this hotel! This will definitely be my go to spot! And to top it all off , the price was great too!! Awesome place!!

Excellent stay”

My wife and I stayed at Southern Sun for three nights and we both loved the hotel. The room was spacious and very comfortable and the staff was friendly and efficient. We had the pleasure to enjoy their breakfast and were amazed by the diversity of dishes and their good taste. There was any kind of breakfast you wanted, from western omelets and pastries to asian and middle eastern options. The rooftop pool, sauna, steam bath, and gym were all very nice, and the multiple restaurants and bars looked very good, although we didn't go to any of them. The location of the hotel is perfect, a few block from the ocean and walking distance (15 minutes) from the Abu Dhabi Mall. Overall a very pleasant stay and I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the city.

Simply value for money”

This is the third time we have stayed here. Last December, February and March. After our first stay there was no doubt as to our return if required. On returning to Abu Dhabi twice since, on both occasions the automatic hotel choice was The Southern Sun. Great value for money, in a competitive market. Large spotlessly clean rooms, great breakfast. Good selection of food available in restaurant, bars and room. Rooftop pool with sunbathing area and bar. There is also a good gym, sauna and steam room. Free underground parking on 4 levels. Very friendly and helpful staff.
