We always have a wonderful time when staying here. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have several nice restaurants and most have live entertainment. The pool is great with a separate pool/waterpark for families and I wish the people with small kids would use it instead of letting their kids run wild in the adult pool with a bar....

For me, the Gulf Hotel offers the best breakfast in Bahrain. So as a family we decided that we would stay a night, sample their excellent selection of cocktails and enjoy breakfast the next morning. We were not disappointed. Not only did we get a great deal on a room, having been advised by staff when the best rates were...
