The hotel was very nice, but it wasn't exceptional. Good restaurants. Kind of out of the way for walking comfortably to shopping, eating, etc. Good security, if that's important to you. I wouldn't stay there again, but I have several friends who won't stay anywhere else.

Very spacious rooms, polite staff, fast Wifi, clean, close to the airport with a variety of restaurants. one thing that disappointed me was that they never cleaned the glass. The room I stayed in had a nice view yet I could not enjoy it because of the dirty glass something you do not expect in 5 stars hotel.

Stayed here on many occasions. Really good service and restraunts. Swimming pool and outside bar area lovely. It's in a good position in Bahrain to explore. It also has a pub which does English pub food and the downstairs restraint does a really good buffet style lunch. Very reasonably priced too.
