Quite different from the standard Fairmont hotels but this is nice and new with a classy and modern feel on entry. Valet Parking is free which was great. We upgraded to the Gold club which was about 360 Dirhams a night. It was worth it as the rooms on the 7th floor are amazing!!!! You also get complimentary breakfast, evening... More

Like all Fairmont properties, the customer service was exceptional. The staff is always on hand and eager to help with any and all requests. The property itself is also fantastic and successfully pulls off a hybrid offering of being a modern, chic hotel with resort like beaches and facilities. The Bab Al-Bahr also caters to a wide audience: suitable for... More

A short one night stay turned out to be a memorable one. We booked a Gold room for 3 of us, 2 adults and our very particular 7 year old! Gold rooms are on the 7th floor and offer the following: breakfast, afternoon tea, drinks between 6 and 8 and some sweet treats late in the evening. Everything is served... More

Excellent value for money for a 5* hotel. The location was good and the best was that it had its own private beach. We had complimentary fruit each day, and the serivice was impeccable. The room was nicely decorated with the usual amenities and facilities. The bed was comfortable enough and the bathroom nice. There was a pleasant smell of... More

Our experience at Fairmont Bab Al Bahr was truly spectacular, and it was made in most part by the truly customer oriented management staff, like Tamar, Thomas and Benji, who went out of their way whenever possible to make this visit special. The amenities, location and view are stunning, breakfast, true to Fairmont standards and probably exceeding. The rooms are... More

Having stayed here in a Fairmont Gold room with my wife and two children I would say that the Fairmont Gold staff, the lounge and the room itself are all top notch. Very welcoming and excellent service. What let's this hotel down is its staff around the pool. The pool itself is great, with a large lap pool and a... More
