I visit this place for the last 16 years and it is not getting any better. It should! Best location, great ocean exposure and well trained people, Guess Management can be improved a bit. Infrastructure is not well maintained and you notice it at every corner..employees are not happy and you hear it everywhere.. It is still the best place... More

I spent a night here. We had a prior booking, but on arrival the rooms were not ready. I had to wait from 6pm in the evening to about 10pm in the night for a room to be available. Eventually I got a room. It was spacious and had a good view of the hotel grounds. Breakfast was good.

I participated to a big and exquisite event reception. Impressed by the architecture and how big is it the complex. The food was very good as well the service. The people are so kind and helpful. A little bit old as style, will need soon a refurbishment.

Good location on the coast with clean rooms and friendly staff. The complex and rooms are somewhat run down and tired looking, but still clean. Walkable distance to some restaurants with a good breakfast buffet. Rooms are good size with plenty of room. Air conditioning keeps the room comfortable. Ordered room service one night and got the pizza. Arrived within... More

King Fahad is located near Ocean and surrounding is amazing. It's a huge property but rooms needs an immediate up-gradation. There is no option to increase the temperature in room. On request for the room heater Hotel Staff says there is no such thing as room heater, we can just provide extra blanket if you want. Hotel Staff is not... More

It's an old hotel that is a bit run down. I'm sure it was fantastic when it was first built. For the most part the staff is friendly. The food is pretty decent and the pool is really nice. The security is pretty good with checks at the parking lot and the lobby. Overall a decent experience.

I stayed here in late May for one night -- a short business trip -- and thought this hotel was very nice. My room had a comfortable bed and the shower/bathroom were clean and provided some nice goodies to use. There were several english language television channels, too. The pool bar was fun and the restaurant made us a fantastic... More

I selected the hotel as it had 1 room available for 1 night. They would not entertain my request for another night as they had an 'event' going on. The hotel is not new by any standard. For the price they charged for the room it really didn't reflect to on the quality. The hotel is secure with proper body... More

Would give a zero rating if available! Arrived at this hotel at 02:00 having a confirmed, and fully paid for reservation booked through BCL (their business liaison service) and was told that the hotel was overbooked. The manager was not too concerned but offered to put us up at another hotel. We spent the night there (horrible place) hoping to... More
