“Very nice minor irritations”
Nice hotel, friendly competent staff, pool and beach provide great ambiance BUT
1. Not enough underground parking for all the guests - parking in blazing sun in Abu Dhabi is not advisable.
2. Big pool and pleasant beachfront but the first morning after swimming in pool, my head was super clogged up and pool is only logical explanation - not enough chlorine or something.
3. No rainshower head, just regular shower head
4. Two teeny little trashcans in the room - had to ask for a big one - ridiculous
5. Light in closet is set at back, looking out, but bright as a searchlight. You can hardly look into closet without hurting your eyes.
6. Shower stall door opens inward, makes it very awkward to get into shower when water is running without getting towel and front of door all wet. Bad design.
7. Signs on TV, bill, etc tell you to book on Rotana.com for best rate, guaranteed. Booking.com rate was better than what Rotan quoted so asked front desk staff about it - they just shrugged their shoulders.

“Check in was 1 hour late”
I reached the hotel around 3:30 pm but got the key at 5 pm. Breakfast was good. The pool is really awesome. Beach is not great as it's not shallow. Housekeeping and other staff were good. Pool is not much crowded.

“Excellent hospitality service by Michael DECHANTSREITER”
I was on the hunt for a special place to surprise my wife for her birthday. I walked into several '5 star' hotels but they all paled in comparison with the Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan.
Michael was amazing at facilitating a personalised and definitely memorable stay. He went above and beyond with the attention to detail. Without a doubt the best stay in the UAE so far and I have stayed at many hotels but none with a personal touch like this before.
Michael has definitely set benchmarks within the hospitality industry!
Value for money as well, thank you once again Michael and staff.

Overall services are excellent. Receptionists are polite as well as the luggage assistants. They were very helpful. The room is clean and tidy, having a huge space with a balcony. You can see both the sea and city views, and a glimpse of the emirates palace. Good for your background in taking selfie photos.
Pool is nice and clean. Beach is okay.
Lifeguards are very alert. Truly recommended. Will definitely come back again.

Anwar the lifeguard, was really kind👍🏼 Room was okay, however, I booked for a room with a sea view but they gave me a room facing half of the sea and half of the other building which I did not expect.

“COVID 19 FRONTLINERS ACCOMODATION”
My hotel in the hotel is great, the facility is very good. My concerned was the hotel should not mix the guest to the medical staffs there who used the hotel as accommodation while battling COVID19.( No offense to the fronliners). We just got scared when we know that. My wife if pregnant btw. we ask the staff but they didnt offer us to change our room.
