We spent a lovely weekend away from the hassle of Manama here and couldn't have hoped for a better place to be. It was very quiet and the beach was deserted which was perfect. The whole hotel is beautiful and the staff could not be more helpful. We did not pre book and got a much better deal so if you live locally then this could be a good idea. We will definitely return as soon as we can. Highly recommended.

My stay at this hotel started well - i was upgraded to an executive floor room with club access.

Although the club is on Level 6, my room was on level 5. Checkin formalities were handled at the club lounge away from the hustle of the downstairs reception.

The room was well prepared and had a nice set of flowers and a date gift, see photos.

The room was well appointed, Hermes toiletries, Voss water, wonderful fittings.

The bed was very comfortable, plenty of pillows for a single guy.

In the bathroom, the shower had a wonderful big shower head. It did take some time for the hot water to reach the room in the mornings.

I tried out the gym one day. It was also good.

Breakfast I had in the lounge. Staff were very helpful preparing fresh espresso for me. Food selection was adequate for me. Egg options available in the ground floor dining area.

All up, this hotel is probably one of the finest i have stayed in. Enjoy!!!!

What are you looking for on a business trip? Clean, Comfort and Easy.. perhaps even a little sense of the local culture.

This Sofitel is none of those. It's not really clean... I had to point out the splatter on my bed side to the cleaners to get it done. They simply ignored it the first two days. It's not really comfortable... Pool guest were laying on the bare banks because the pool guys didn't want to pull out the mattresses. And some of us were locked out of their room even though they told the reception that they wanted to check out late. It's totally not easy... most of the staff is from South East Asia and don't understand a word of English. Order 'three espresso' and you'll get one tea and one espresso. Not easy when you're really dying for that caffeine shot right before your speech. And that sense of culture? This Sofitel is located at the other side of the island. It's at least 25 minutes by car to the capital Manama. Costs 15 to 20 Dinar (= $50) one way... This makes you think twice if you really want to see the local market and bargain over $2.

I would chose a different hotel.

I was lucky enough to have five days at a conference at this hotel. Complete 5-star experience.

Room - awesome huge bath tub, all rooms have ocean view, comfortable bed. Suggestion to the hotel - more clothes hangers, more news TV channels. Overall it was amazing!

Service - I got sick on this trip. The manager, Khalid, arranged for a doctor from the nearby hospital to come see me. All members of the staff demonstrated similar levels of service. (one weird note - concierge actually knocked on my door at 1am to deliver a package - seriously!)

Spa - got a great pedicure at a reasonable price.

Dining - Room service was a bit limited if you wanted local food, but the mezza selection was amazing. And the maccarron shop in the lobby was a treat!

Only downside - there is nothing nearby, you are 30 minutes from Manama. But you don't want to leave this place anyway!

Room Tip: They are all good!

Best resort in Bahrain. Fancy rooms with a nice both pool & beach views. Friendly and helpful staff. Great food

The only disadvantages in the location. It’s almost in the middle of nowhere!. Although Bahrain is quite small island where you can travel to any point within reasonable time.

I will definitely stay again in Sofitel.
