I stayed with my cousins as a mini family reunion last summer (August) for a couple of days. We loved our stay, the service was genuine and attentive enough. The hotel's layout design was of a true seaside design. The rooms were very spacious, modern and have also very spacious and private balconies for couples seating! The bathrooms were very... More

This is truly a 5 star hotel located on a beautiful spot overlooking the Persian Gulf. No need to leave hotel for meals as the restaurants at hotel are great. The overall service is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this hotel if you are traveling to Bahrain.

Drove across the bridge for a weekend out of Saudi Arabia. The hotel is a bit far from the rest of Manama but the resort is nice. The rooms are big, comfortable and the beds are a dream. All rooms have a sea view. The spa is ok, although not the best. I expected better from a 5 star hotel.... More

The Sofitel offers a unique experience in Bahrain to be on the coast and be treated to a very relaxing stay. We were there as a family for an extended stay due to business.

I am going to go a bit against the grain in this review. I and my wife did not like this hotel at all for some very specific reasons. First the good: It has a lovely beach, which my wife appreciated, and the room was spacious. All staff were polite and helpful throughout the stay. Now the bad: Connection speed... More
