I haven't stayed at any of these , but have been to Abu Dhabi. The Jumeriah gets great reviews and look amazing from the outside at least.

Having just stayed at a Rosewood property in Mexico - I'd say Rosewood would be a clear winner out of that lot.

Just to confirm, I was under the assumption that the premium stopover was for paid J/F tickets only and not award tickets. Is this still the case?
We recently flew Etihad F, on an award booking. Was told not entitled to the free stopover but was offered the 2 nights for the price of one stopover that we made good use of at Emirates Palace

That is my understanding ... award tickets and discounted J tickets are not entitled to free stopover nights ... or free chauffeur in AUH. But for stopover you can usually get 2 for 1 nights and for transfer EY offers a paid transfer service that is reasonably cheap.

Just completing a stay in Etihad Towers using free stopover nights. The booking process was not very user friendly. Extra nights were very expensive and the Etihad agent booked under a second booking so I had to check-in again part through the stay. In hindsight might have been cheaper overall to book through booking.com or similar.

Actually, trying to organise anything through Etihad seems complicated.

I didn't realise this was an option :confused: Thanks for bumping this up, we have a CAI-xAUH-KUL coming up with a 26hr stopover.
