“Fantastic place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

My husband had a business meeting in Manama so my son and myself tagged along for the trip. We stayed in a 2 bedroomed suite with lounge and kitchen. It was fantastic, clean and everything you need. We used the gym which was great and the pool was lovely. The only criticism i have is the pool is stuck out on the side of the 1st floor and the sun has gone by lunch time but then it isn't really the sort of country where you just go to sunbathe. The taxi drivers don't seem to realise that there are two of these Residences and always go to the wrong one but it's not a big deal as they are within a minute apart. The breakfast room was good with some hot food which was scrambled eggs and a meat type thing and there was cereals, croissants, rolls, toast, yogurts and fruit. the staff are extremely polite and attentive.
We would definitely recommend this place. We also went to a local shopping mall which had everything you needed plus a water park and cinema actually inside. We love Bahrain!

Room Tip: Room 3094 is very nice on the 9th floor.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

I had the distinct pleasure of being one of the first guests at this property and over the first few months the I stayed I have seen this property makes several improvements the its facility however, this is one hotel that will struggle to ever be what we come to expect from the JW Marriott brand. Don’t let the pictures fool you (false renderings and not actual on-site photos) this place will frustrate you. The parking garage is unsatisfactory, unless you have a compact car and even then you will be taking a risk of squeezing your vehicle in tight quarters. The power to the building has constant outages; multiple times I struggled to run a few miles on the treadmill before it cut out and had to track up/down several flights of stairs due to elevators being non-operational. The internet cuts out during peak hours and the pluming has constant clogs. If you are looking for the convenience of staying in Juffair, I would recommend staying across the street at Marriott’s Executive Apartments (MEA). That property has is down just right and I have heard nothing but the best. The management and staff at the Residence Inn were exceptional, so I am confident that this hotel will one day compare to the rest, but for the coming months I recommend you try a different hotel.

Dear Sir,

First I would like to thank you for being a Marriott customer and for your feedback about our newly opened Residence Inn.

I have read your feedback and I can assure you that most of the problems you have highlighted have been fixed. As you mentioned, the hotel just opened and like any new building, we faced some unexpected issues related to electricity, drainage and the air conditioning. However, I can assure you that all these problems have been fixed and we have added new internet lines to increase the speed.

As for the parking, we are in contact with the contractor to find a way to fix the issue as it is very tight to park. Meanwhile, we do have ample outdoor parking spaces across from the hotel.

On another note, thank you for your positive comments about the Marriott Executive Apartments and our staff. I would also like to highlight that the Residence Inn brand worldwide is different than the JW Marriott Brand. The JW Marriott hotel is considered a luxury brand, where as the Residence Inn is more for extended stay and a mid tier product. The same is for the Marriott Executive Apartments and the Residence Inn, hence the price difference.

Once again, thank you for your feedback and for staying with us.


Best regards
Marwan Haddad
Director of Sales
