Good experience with family
Amazing stay, this is my 3rd time staying at Ritz Grand Canal AbuDhabi… with the Family .. - Shared services are located very nicely with superior standards - Guest reception is very welcoming - Some rooms are quite far from Lobby but worth the walk on Marbles. - Sport Bar is excellent daily changed varities only 1 cons was on the Asian resturant with a poor waiter service, Manager cane and apologized otherwise everything was good We tried all restaurants and facilities

8/10 Very good

Eid Holiday
1. We booked a half board stay but we were a little disappointed with the limited menu and options that comes with the offer. So we chose to have dinners at the international restaurant instead. Another disappointing thing is that you cannot order a soft drink as it is not included in the offer. Seriously guys, how much would a soft drink cost you. I might understand if you said no alcoholic drinks, but soft drinks? I thought that was a very cheap move coming from a well known hotel like the Ritz-Carlton. 2. The hot water in the room is not stable at all. It alternates between cold and hot all the time with no apparent reason. My daughter got burned several times, eventually got scared and refused to take a shower. She is definitely not going back there due to this issue, so most probably neither will we. Thats very unfortunate.

4/10 Fair

My worst stay here
It was very bad, starting from reception till the end. They forced us to do PCR, to get green Al hosn app, but no one was bothered to check that anywhere in hotel . Receptionist Pouroush said you can’t have breakfast, pool activities, any other restaurants access if you don’t have green app. Very bad customer service, if you dial 0 & call, you have to wait for long. They send room services very late including buggy. Curtains won’t get close completely, full sunlight wil come in morning 6 am. Worst part is gardeners cut grass with very loud machines that too in morning, I warmed them day 1, they repeated again on day 2 of stay.
