Looks like they're cutting costs, but it's obvious maintenance is poor and the whole hotel feels tired, rooms are getting older that they should, rusty soap trays in the toilet, dirty & smelly sofa...

Really nice spacious rooms. Comfy bed and nice wet room. Nice staff but agree they would benefit with a bit more training and/or experience? Simple things, not a big deal. The pool area is nice and almost joined to the beach, so perfect on that point. Not enough sun loungers for the size of the hotel with lots crammed into... More

This is a very nice, modern hotel at a great location. About 20 minutes from the airport and easy to get to. Jorge at the front desk was nice and got me a room on Gold floor facing the canal. Quite spacious room with nice amenities. Separate shower stall and free-standing bathtub. Bose Wave Music System in the room, as... More

We were recommended Fairmont but have been disappointed. Each plus side tended to have a greater negative - room good and spacious - although smelt of smoke and musty. Staff are friendly but poorly trained - simple questions couldn't be answered. Food ok but variety for a 5 star poor. Promoted benefits not as expected -'mountain bikes but all one... More

This is a very modern hotel, all clean lines and quirky furnishings. It is obviously geared for business travellers and conferences, but this does not impact upon your enjoyment of the hotel or its facilities. If you want free wifi, join the free Presidents Club, before your stay. Can't believe that it is not automatically complimentary in a 5 star... More

The check in process was a little slow, although a member of staff soon came out and took me to the presidents club desk. All positive so far. In a room of 4 people why do they insist on not having the correct amount of robes, pillows, slippers, and towels? They must know on check in.??? The pool and beach... More

Just at the end of another week at The Fairmont and again it was excellent. We were in a Gold room and it's definitely worth the extra that it costs. Food and service was mostly excellent and the staff are unfailingly helpful and friendly. A special mention must go to the staff in the Gold Lounge, especially Joyce who looked... More

After many stays at the fairmont bab al bhar on the gold floor, i can certainly recommend the hotel. The staff on the gold floor are very good, great meals at Frankie's and Marco pierre white. However, it is a real shame that after four years of staying at the property, fairmont still haven't sorted out the overcrowding and unpleasantness... More

Overall a good stay. if you dont get a seaview room you will be looking at the carpark. Dont bother with the afternoon high tea as its a disappointment. Lovely beach, good food. Inroom lighting for ladies to put on there makeup is not good.
