This is my preferred choice when staying at weekends in Bahrain and in my opinion offers the best value for money in Bahrain. Pro's - Staff are friendly, attentive and respond quickly to all requests promptly - Excellent fitness centre and nice pool area - Sometimes have been awarded complimentary upgrades to Club rooms or rooms in the Residence and...

Good venue although a little cold to be sat outside in January so we asked to move. Food was ok also although it didn't blow me away like other venues in Bahrain which is a shame as it could be so much better. Not the biggest variety and took a long time from ordering to delivery to the table for... More

The biggest drawback of this hotel is that it is in the business district worth nothing to do in walking distance. In the evening the bars and restaurants in the hotel are pretty dead. The hotel has a great pool and a big gym with many facilities. Being surrounded by tall office building you will have a hard time catching... More

Dear Jan, I have noted all your comments about the location of the hotel in your recent review on trip advisor. Although the immediate vicinity of the hotel seems to be quiet in the evening with Bahrain being very small you can access all amenities within 5-10 minutes. I also note your comments about the style of the hotel and... More

Flew over from Dubai for a short break in Bahrain. My husband had arranged a pick up from the airport and the gentleman was there waiting for us. The complimentary room upgrade was a pleasant surprise, which then meant we could get drinks and snacks on the 10th floor. The room was clean no issues at all. Could do with... More

My family and I stayed here for two days to get away from it all. The staff was great and so friendly. I sat with my daughter at the poolside and she swam while I enjoyed the peacefulness. It is a great place for a family stay because it is not one of the noisy party places that a lot... More

The room was booked as a club room and was smaller and more dated than expected for money paid. The air conditioning was too warm and did not sleep well for first two nights. It was eventually cooled to bearable after 4 complaints to reception and other staff. It was fixed when the duty manager called me and dealt with... More

an easy going and familiar place. I like staying there. We are not talking about the Ritz here, but it is a nice place and you can feel comfortable. The service is great and everyone has a huge smile on the face. The restaurants can be better, but the local guys working in the hotel are delightful and extremely friendly.
