Discover the opulence of Abu Dhabi with a stay in one of its newest resorts. Set in the expansive Al Seef Village, Al Seef Resort & Spa by Andalus offers home-away-from-home suites across its series of low-rise villas, which are set along the palm-peppers pavements. Each comes complete with an open-plan kitchen, a living room area and one, two or three bedrooms.
Set on Abu Dhabi’s Eastern Ring, you’re within easy reach of some of the city’s most iconic landmarks, including Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Within the resort itself you’ll find a whole street dedicated to dining, as well as leading fashion brands in the village’s marvelous mall. What’s more, there are four swimming pools to saunter between, as well as Abu Dhabi’s largest Jacuzzi.
You’ll also have Happiness Island at your fingertips – a private island resort with two swimming pools, one of which boasts gorgeous Arabian Gulf views. There’s also an all-day-dining restaurant here, plus beanbags and sofas set around the pool, making it easy to while away a day in the warm sunshine.
One Bedroom suites span a generous 807 square feet and come with an additional terrace area of 818 square feet. Two Bedroom suites are larger still, with two bathrooms to boot, while Three Bedroom suites measure a spacious 1,755 square feet and boasts large windows, allowing the space to be flooded with natural light. All the suites come complete with high-speed Internet access, as well as well-equipped open-plan kitchens.
Mamsha Al Seef is the village’s dedicated food street, with over 20 eateries to choose from, and more soon to be opened. Dining destinations include San Francisco Coffee Co. and Gina’s Cafe, plus Sushi and Sashamini and the colorful Chota Restaurant.
Al Seef Resort & Spa by Andalus is located just a 20-minute drive from Abu Dhabi’s city center. The impressive Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is just a 10-minute drive away, and the project-in-progress Saadiyat Island is 20 minutes away by car.
How to Get There
This resort is visually beautiful. As you enter you're into the reception/lobby area. Exit from the opposite side leads you to a most spectacular sight. The small paths that lead you to your apartment are lined with eateries, a gym, library, spa etc. The walk would have been about 2 minutes but we were taken via a little white buggy. That was so cute. There are 4 pools and a kids play area.
We had a 2 bedroom spacious apartment with 2 bathrooms.
The hotel is attached to Al seef Mall, there is a Carrefour supermarket, Macdonalds, and many other food outlets.
I decided to do a breakfast shop and put my food away, some in cupboard, fridge and some next to toaster.
When I woke the next morning there were ants all over my food.
I was horrified. I had to buy anti bac to clean up. I advised reception but they did not think it was an issue. Ants in your kitchen, crawling on the dining table are an issue. I understand its very hot but if you dont use the appropriate cleaning products the problem just persists.
Another problem l had was that there were no mirrors in the bedroom. How can you style your hair, dry or straighten without a mirror. The only mirrors are in the bathroom even then the main mirror is tinted and you can barely see yourself. I asked for an extension lead but reception said they didnt have any. I asked for a mirror they didn't have one. The hairdryer was the useless one that you have to keep pressed with your finger. So literally I had bad hair for the 6 days I was there!
My husband also sustained an injury due to faulty equipment at the gym. He was rewarded with a late checkout. Imagine if that had happened in the UK, he would have been seriously compensated, he couldnt move his arm for 2 days as he had dropped 50kg on it!
There was also a strong smell of sewage right outside our apartment.Overall the resort is visually beautiful, but being 5 star I expected more as its not cheap. Come on Al Seef you can do better!
This resort is like a small village, accommodation with various restaurants however we were not aware it wasn't an international hotel and therefore could not enjoy an alcoholic beverage with our meals there, it's not a huge deal but when you are on holidays it's always nice.
The rooms are very generous however our outside area was very dirty, covered in dust from the desert.
It is a beautiful and good place for children and family but as a very bad hotel like service and cleanliness. When request is delayed more than 45 minutes.
هو مكان جميل و جيد للأطفال و عائلة و لكن كفندق سئ جدا كالخدمة ونظافة.
