Bringing the kids? Abu Dhabi is tons of fun for the family. My kids absolutely loved it! With sand duning, the world's largest rollercoaster, beaches, malls and souks, you can't go wrong. Abu Dhabi is very child friendly with plenty of family friendly restaurants. You will need to find a hotel that will accommodate families. Some of our favourites are the Beach Rotana with an excellent kids club and plenty of family activities, Crowne Plaza Yas Island with easy access to Ferrari World Amusement Park and lots to keep the kids busy.

Have an early or late night flight? It takes 30 minutes to an hour (rush hour) to reach the city centre so an airport hotel is great for those needing quick access to the airport. There is an in transit hotel or several(much, much nicer) hotels 10 minutes drive away. If you are here on a stopover there are plenty of things to do with just a few hours time. Here are our recommendations for the best airport hotels.

Yas Island Hotels

Yas hote

Yas Island is a popular choice among vacationers. It is the spot to be during F1 (although the hotel prices will match that demand!). You have the marina, beautiful beaches, Yas Marina Circuit (yes you can race a race car here!) and Ferrari World home to the world's fastest roller coaster! So fast you need goggles!!! The most famous hotel on the island is Yas Viceroy. This state of the art hotel is situated half on land and half on water. There are even rooms that span across the F1 track! Though you might want to start saving your dirhams now to be able to afford those rooms during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix! Here are the best of the Yas Island Hotels
