Used it myself a few weeks ago, had no issues at all with using the lounge. just insure you are using the right lounge as the F lounge is in a particular terminal. 

Showed my Plat card and was accompanied into the F lounge

Had a massage and a wonderful meal in there, all table service provided.

Enjoy

Came into the F lounge inbound on EY from LHR, no issues with VA PFF status/entry.

Was surprised at how quiet it was - no queue for showers & spa services at all!  Had a wonderful facial, but was advised at the end the foot massages are fantastic.  Next time!!

 

enjoy!

I would agree with the above, as long as you aren't in the 'review phase' of your membership.  You are still supposed to be getting the benefits of your Platinum membership for a month after your review date, but whilst awaiting your new card (even when you have re-qualified as platinum) you may have problems using it at partner lounges because the staff think the review date is the expiry date.  I had an issue at an SQ lounge an wasn't allowed entry until I logged into my account on my iPhone and showed them that I had re-qualified.

The showers in the first class lounge at AUH are really nice, and the massages are wonderful - just make sure you book one as soon as you enter the lounge as they can get pretty busy.
