“Great location but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Stayed there one night. Greatly located near Marina. You will find many restaurants and coffee shops around the property. Unless you have your own transportation, it is hard to get a taxi. Food is little bit disappointing. The rooms are nice, modern, with a seaside view. But you can hear noises from the room next. Overall rates were overpriced considering all they offered. Would recommend The Regency or JW Marriott if you are traveling for business. But it would be a good destination for short vacations. I checked in for one night and moved to JW Marriott next day. I enjoyed the stay but it was not particularly catered to business travelers

Stayed during a conference. Excellent location, just near beach and Marina Mall. Good hotel with good staff. Food was excellent. Vegetarian salads are very tasty. Seems like the Chef monitors what type of customers are visiting the hotel and prepares accordingly.

Great location. Next to a mall, restaurants and coffee shops. Rooms provide views of Kuwait tower or Gulf. Private beach and good security. Courteous and helpful staff. Breakfast is a disappointment. I stayed for 8 days and it was the same menu everyday.

If you really have to stay the night in Kuwait, stay here. Bit out of town, but superior to all of the more centrally located hotels. Clean, modern rooms, ok breakfast, decent service. For Kuwait, that's a great result.

This is a nice hotel and knocks the spots off the Sheraton and is a million times better than the four points.  It's location is a little off beat and will cost some time due to the traffic if you need to go to thee centre of town. Trust me it's worth it. The room are open light and airy. The suites have a huge lounge attached to the room separated by sliding doors. The single  rooms are nice as well. The room service was good and the breakfast is nice with very attentive service. I would highly recommend this hotel.  Internet is free and super fast not like the chains that have adopted  two tiered pricing systems.  The hotel organised the visa and car. The guy met us as we left the aeroplane and took us to the Marina desk once we left passport control and the car took 5 min to arrive. Car clean nice.   Check in staff are good and it's a relaxed process as you sit in a comfy chair and check in staring at a large fish tank.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Recently stayed for the 4th time & the high standards have been maintained. Pre-booked the free airport pickup & return transfers. Front desk staff are extremely polite & attentive.
Location is great with Marina Crescent cafes & restaurants a short walk away. Marina Mall is only a little further.
Large pool area with private beach are ideal for after-work relaxation.
Spacious rooms are a blend of business & beach resort with tiled floors. This conveys the impression of cleanliness which continues throughout the rooms. They're not as opulent as some but are well suited to the character of the location. Large bathroom is more tropical resort than business hotel with quality Mouton-Brown toiletries. Welcome nibbles & fruit are a nice touch.
Six Palms breakfast buffet has an enormous range, far more than most people could eat. It's an ideal base for (my) business while being a comfortable place to relax after work.

Room Tip: Higher floors on the beach side are quieter than those adjacent to the vehicle access ramp.
