I have been to Emirates Palace over the years since it opened. It is of course very impressive but as it is so large, difficult to make it personal and welcoming. Managment should be more visible and as at the Four Seasons promoting service and remembering names as nice details.

We went here for coffee and cakes this year in Le Café. There was a large selection of cakes, many with small gold flakes. The staff were very helpful and were good at making us feel special.

We had to make reservations to get inside to see the palace. Our guide made us reservations to have the gold flaked coffee! Cross that off our bucket list! The rest of the palace was so beautiful! A must see. There are always art exhibits inside to see. Must see the portrait of Sheikh in solid gold.

The whole palace felt like opulence for opulence sake. If you skipped this, you won't feel like you missed something.

The former residence to the Emir, the Emirates Palace is now a 7-star hotel in AD. Truly impressive to see the grounds (outside) and then walk in to check out the inside of the hotel. There's a cafe and a restaurant (the gold leaf coffee is supposed to be the staple drink to try) inside as well as a few... More

This is on of the finest hotel in Abu Dhabi. Build as a palace for the King, but he did before it was finished. A wonderful building and place to visit, inside as well as outside. If you have time for a lunsj here, do it.

This place is absolutely gorgeous. There are numerous restaurants and shops throughout the building. The beach is beautiful. We had dinner and drinks at the beachside restaurant and it was a wonderful evening. It's very fairly priced for AD and the food/drinks were amazing. Be sure to dress conservatively (legs and shoulders covered) and you should have no problems. Be... More

We arranged to meet a friend from Dubai at Le Cafe for lunch. The surroundings are impressive but the food at Le Cafe was not. The waiters were sullen and the service very slow. We had expected the food to be overpriced, but the quality of the food was very poor.
