We visited in 2015 for 1 day and it was not a comfortable stay. Food was not good. Room condition was also very bad. We requested to change the room and they gave us the another toom but the condition was same. I will not recomend this. Only the best part is that they have lots of water sports activities.

The hotel was literally old and was out of fashion. Facilities needs to fix to be back in shape. Few staffs were good but majority seemed fed up and don't give a damn. The buffet was disappointing. Very few items were displayed and was so tasteless. The stay that we had was a gift but it seemed just a waste... More

This hotel in Ghantoot just inside Abu Dhabi and off highway 11, the hotel is on a lagoon and appears to be very quiet. There are places to walk and the architecture of the building appears interesting but it does appear to be old and in need of updating.

I went to this hotel as a half way meeting point for a breakfast meeting. The hotel is quite bizarre. It reeks of 1970s meets Louis the 15th with plastic plants thrown in. The breakfast was really poor (Dhs 170 for two) but our server was very attentive and courteous. It is a large hotel but I noticed on the... More

Although re-branding is a usual fast trick that terrible hotels pull in order to confluster patrons, the Cassells Ghantoot is currently still proudly called Five Continents Cassells and claims to have a four star rating (hence the info on Tripadvisor is slightly misleading). We booked last week without a real chance to check the reviews carefully, based mainly on the... More
