I do not know where to start, my family and I are too happy with the top service of James, it is the best, we have never been treated so, James is too attentive, polite, with a good heart, he anticipated everything. I ordered the Tempura Maki for my dad, unfortunately he did not like, James approached us to know what's wrong, try to find a quick solution. We expected that he will serve us our main meals together after finished our starters, but very quickly he brought my dad's meal first, it looks like he was prepared to any eventuality. He was doing also the same to other customers around us. Great Thanks you, We Love You, Take Care, See you Very Soon. ❤️

We stayed four nights in Saadiyat Rotana and was immediately impressed with the façade and the massive lobby of this hotel-resort upon arrival. The guest room is so elegant and the view is divine. We admire the tranquility of the surroundings especially at night. The spectacular sunrise and sunset is something to watch as our room is directly facing the sea. The landscaping is phenomenal with a lot of greeneries. We felt so refreshed each day during our stay. The restaurants serves amazing dishes with a five star service from their friendly and professional staff - Sim Sim, Turtle Bay, Hamilton’s and Si Ristorante. On another note, we would like to say a quick thank you for the excellent service that we have experienced throughout our stay at Saadiyat Rotana. The front desk was excellent upon check-in with brilliant assistance from Kim and from Abegael upon check-out. Eswar from housekeeping, has done a phenomenal job in cleaning the room. He is very friendly in welcoming us and even came back one day, to check on us if we need something else before he leaves. The recreations team does a great job managing the pool considering its massive size. Keep up the good work and I hope to see these beautiful people again. We recommend that anyone who wants a refreshing stay should try Saadiyat Rotana.
