Had everything I wanted plus a few extras. The only downside was lack of real bacon, beef bacon is not a substitute. Some hotels do offer this tucked away food item, although this hotel is not one.

Surprised to learn that breakfast wasn't included with our room and that it was over $30 a day per person. But as the hotel is very secluded (limited other options) we were hostage. The food and service was good (eggs and waffles cooked to order,...More

Good place with friendly staff, but always seems a bit stretched. Open all day within the InterContineltal Hotel in Abu Dhabi this is fine for quick eats, breakfast, light lunch, but not sure the ambiance is right for dinner.

Hi. I've clean forgotten the price. We were using discount coupons, so don't know the actual per person price. I'm sure their website would enlighten you.
