Despite first opening in 1982, the Sheraton seems to have kept pace with the times. It was 'futuristic' back then, and is still attractive despite being low-rise.
Staff are excellent. A problem with my Wifi connection was dealt with (not rapidly) and the 'service recovery' was excellent. Room was clean and, with two televisions, one is spoilt for choice. Bathroom was spacious and well fitted out.
Breakfast was good and service attentive. Outside, the open air restaurant, near the water, was enjoyable and prices were reasonable for the region.
I booked a standard room, but for 200 Riyals a day extra, an upgrade was possible. The savings on breakfast/internet were covered by this. But - on top is the club room where snacks and so on are available all day. 1800 sees 'happy hour' where on most nights, the canapes were really good. Only drawback for some people, is the smoky atmosphere, as many guests chain-smoked.
The staff were excellent throughout. Book a car and it will cost 150R, about 2.5 times the taxi rate. However, the BMW fleet is better than some cabs.
Irish Bar in basement was OK. Not a female in sight, that might have led to a gender imbalance. I don't mind, but to some, it is less convivial.
