Check-in

It was only 12 noon when we arrived so we had to leave our luggage, collect our complimentary tickets to Warner Bros from the Concierge, visit the Warner Bros and then return to the hotel around 3pm for the usual check-in. Check-in was friendly and efficient and moments later, we were on our way to our room with our card keys.

I love this Marshall radio πŸ‘

The lack of international power outlets was a bit disappointing although they at least have USB ports πŸ˜‰

Strangely when we checked-in, we were told that we would have our breakfast from 9-11am on the ground floor so we thought we would have breakfast here as it was the only restaurant on the ground floor. Double-checking though with the phone operator in the evening, she said breakfast is only at Sidekicks.

CONCLUSION

This is the first Warner Bros themed hotel in the world so staying in this hotel was just so cool. It was exciting to see lots of famous characters in the lobby taking photos with the children. Of course, the room we got was lovely and had the Scooby Doo theme. Breakfast offering was extensive and the hotel amenities including the two pools were perfect. The complimentary bus service to Ferrari World, etc was a big plus. Lastly, the complimentary tickets to any of the theme parks per night was just awesome as it saves you a lot of money. We were able to access the Warner Bros before check-in and come back again the same day in the afternoon after check-in so it was really worth it. The hotel was really busy since it was school vacation but the staff were all able to handle it well so kudos to them. The birthday cake and the room upgrade made our stay even more special and I can´t thank the staff enough. To The Warner Bros Abu Dhabi, Shukran 😍 Until next time!
