As a regular Ritz customer i have always thought of the restaurant/buffets as one of the best in Riyadh. Whilst the food quality is below the like of the Four Seasons the property has the WOW factor when entertaining clients, family and friends. However, our recent visit Ramadan Iftar visit was significantly below the usual standards. Clearly caught out by... More

Over the top lobby, with sitting areas and two outdoor terraces, one for men only (great for enjoying a cigar) and one for families. Fitness center was fine, but somewhat lifeless. I hear the pool is spectacular, but it closes early as... More
